I predicted a nightmare scenario, what I thought would be the worst plausible case, in which the Donald would be widely believed by the c
uckonservative base to be running in 2024. That scenario is currently not ruled out. For the record, I suspect that His Incomparable Excellency is too old to be an effective executive throughout the presidential term 2025–2029. That is no cause for concern if you believe like I do that there will be a military takeover of the United States before 2030.
It crosses my mind that the declaration of martial law by our populist president could be worse in the long run, but not longer than ten years, because it would give the patriotic right comfort enough to accept more decline. In technical jargon, it would push open the Overton window leftward, deeper into the happy police state. That, it seems to me, would make for a cleaner, surer kill of American conservatives.
I am not trying to convince you that I am right in this post. I can’t imagine anyone wants more of my political assessment. We wait. Is it not unnerving?
I can easily deduce that conservatives would likely consider Trumpian martial law the least risky option. I know that those who would believe that must have logical reasons based on their respective intrinsic natures. I restrain myself as to why. See? The new me. 🙂
I am interested in what you think, since I have no social aptitude to ‘just know’. Is martial law from the Donald politically viable for the American right? My question to you is:
My objective is simply to gauge public opinion and be better informed. You might learn something too. It wouldn’t hurt if my favorite Hawaiian made a cameo to let us know he is wellysez enough to lurks the interwebz, or how flagrantly the fragrant comings and goings of BO waft sulfurously about the imperial Sandwich Islands.
Share what you will.
