Political pundits in America talk endlessly about their candidates ‘path to power’ with the Electoral College as a rubix cube of a multitude different ‘paths to power’, each strategy is aimed to maximise the numbers required to win the Electoral College and thus the White House.
Most of the time a candidate will have different paths to power and various strategies to fall back on when one path closes.
I fear that Trump has picked the only path to power possible for him and will ruthlessly chase it regardless of what it does to scar America in a way that never repairs.
Many pundits looked at Trump’s performance in the first debate and because of his belligerent and bullying behaviour, they’ve concluded it was the worst debate in history and that Trump needs to be muted.
That’s the worst understanding and suggestion of that Debate.
Trump is speaking only to his support base because he needs that base to vote on the day in huge numbers.
To his QAnon acolytes, white supremacists and angry white working classes, his performance was the classic Trump brand of beer they love to chug and news that the Lamestream Media will mute the President so Biden can speak will only be further proof of the attempt to steal the White House away from Trump.
Trump will ensure his right wing anti-Abortion nutter becomes a Supreme Court Judge while screaming incessantly that mail in votes will be rigged.
On election day, Trump’s mask hating, freedom loving, Kid Rock greasy, Nascar Gun appreciation club and quasi fascist Proud Boys proudly march to the ballot boxes while Democrats stay at home and mail in their vote the dynamics of which award Trump the barest of victories on election night.
You and I both know dear reader that Trump will declare victory on Election night and as the mail in votes start to come in, Trump will start legal battles in every situation to recount or disallow votes.
Trump keeps the legal cases going for 35 days after which the Supreme Court, which he has just stacked 6 to 3 in favour of Conservatives, makes the call.
As the country erupts into anger at the magnitude of Trump’s corruption and out right theft of the election, he ruthlessly enacts emergency powers to quell the riots and calls on his armed militia and military to protect him.
These are dangerous days now.
Amerika is rising.
