When some of the people stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war. Throughout our history, elections decided who ran our country until now. Although the sides disagreed, whoever won the election took over and ran the country. But today one side does not agree on the election results and is blocking running the country by the election winner.
The Democrats are rejecting results of the election which means they no longer believe that transfer of power in this country should be determined by elections. Some of you might remember when Bush the second was elected. They said he didn’t really win and it had to be decided by the Supreme Court. Since then the resistance has gotten even worse.
We all know the Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. The Democrats seem to have rejected our system of government. What does it mean when you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you want is a dictatorship, where you are the dictator.
If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything. He/she can create amnesty for illegal aliens; can fine you for not having health insurance. The power is unlimited almost like a dictator.
When Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President is blocked on all fronts. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor invented without any congressional authority. A Democrat in the White House can decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the ‘discretion’ to do anything without a court challenge.
When a Democrat is in the White House, states are not allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, Jerry Brown went around saying that California is an independent republic.
Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is like a secret society. You can’t serve in it if you’re not a member. Trump isn’t a member and his people are not members either.
Now we’re seeing what the insiders will do when regular citizens try to take away their power. They spy on them, they investigate them, raid the home and business and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down. Is that a free country?
Democracy is under siege when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an “insurance policy” against Trump. Democracy is under siege when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. Democracy is under siege when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. Democracy is under siege when those in power collude to overturn an election because their candidate did not win.
Will they be successful or will some regular citizens stand up and resist?
