“If the Democratic Party wants to stand with anarchists, agitators, rioters, looters and flag burners, that is up to them. But I as your president will not be part of it. The Republican Party will remain the voice of the patriotic heroes who keep America safe.”
— Donald Trump, Aug. 28, 2020

Dear fellow citizens, across the aisle:
Up until a few days ago there were about 150 elected Republicans who were on record saying they would object to accepting electors supporting the victory of Joe Biden. (Congress can object on evidence-based cause – none of which has been found – but Congress does not have the authority to choose which electors various states send to the electoral college, but rather, only to count them and tally the count, naming the victor.) Congress is legislative, not judicial; they are not entitled to go on a fishing expedition to look for fraud, which has already failed, in courts.
Yesterday a mob sacked our capitol. This mob was invited, incited and sent by a mobster. Personally, I want to practice neighborliness with all fellow citizens. (correction: Yet, CNN reports that a total of 121 elected Republicans objected to the electors presented for Arizona; and 138 for Pennsylvania, after the capitol was sacked! ) If you, dear citizen, voted for this lying mobster in the General Election, I invite you to ponder the quote at the top which now debunks any claim of law and order by said mobster:
If these “patriotic heroes” mentioned by the mobster were acting on credible evidence, I would praise them, too! But we must protect our community from the lame claim that the election was “stolen”. If you believe so, please consider the many lawsuits, all of which were rejected by our courts for lack of credible evidence. (Many of these suits were rejected by courts in Republican states!) No court anywhere saw evidence of significant voter fraud which could have effected the outcome of the election. But we did see a brazen attempt by the mob’s Don to demand that the top election official in Georgia (a Republican) “find” about 12,000 votes to overturn a certified election which had been counted three times.
“Truth by assertion” — merely saying something is so, doesn’t make it so. Saying “I won” over and over is nonsense if the votes don’t add up, not even if the words “in a landslide” are added to the claim. Where is the evidence? Even this Mobster’s own Attorney General has admitted there is no such evidence, when resigning. Do you really want a mobster running America? (The Mobster’s consigliere, Rudy Giuliani, has called for “trial by combat”!)
Neighbor, if you still believe this election was stolen from Mr Trump, you are a Banana Republican in need of an awakening to reality. If so, please get some help. Our community needs you back again, in your right mind.
Karma is a harsh mistress. The US was instrumental in the creation of most of the “banana republics” by fostering a century of dictators like Battista, Somoza, Trujillo, Ríos Montt, et all. The US has on occasion simply replaced one dictator with another they installed, in Panama, for example.
It was only a matter of time before we got our own tin pot dictator.
Trump’s character is deeply flawed. He’s the star of his own unReality Show: Drama Queen. Yet so many continue to tune in! So will he replace his twitter feed with a fireside chat telling us that antifa attacked the rotunda, and five people are dead, but “I take no responsibility” like he said about covid-19 ?
