Moonshadow, you too. And fear not, I just saw a piece by a retired high-ranking military man reminding all of us civilians that the US military is unique in the world for pledging loyalty to the Constitution, not to a person or even the office they may hold. The Constitution.
And if Trump should eek out a power grab through some buried constitutional
technicality, as was indicated in FFA's posted video, which by the way, was not to first time I've heard of this plot, among other options Trump has (hence my earlier prediction)... then what?
The constitution states that "the people" have no say in who's chosen for president, that power rest with electors chosen by the legislatures of the various states, and should that method fail, then by the house.
Many people I know personally don't bother to vote in presidential elections for this very reason. I researched their reason and found it to be factual, nevertheless for pretty much my entire life I've always felt that no candidate could ever truly buck the will of the people.
Then again, I never thought I'd see the day when the people who raised me, and the people who surrounded me during my entire life would look up from their bibles, close it, and crown a "man" like Trump king of kings.
Biden may find himself in the Whitehouse yet come January, but I'm not putting any money on it. Dave, you live in a very progressive region of a very progressive state. I just don't think you're hearing the local rumblings that I am in Appalachia, less than an hour from Tennessee.
These people are ready to go to war if Biden wins.  They are convinced he is the one trying to "steal" the election, and many seem perfectly willing to lay down their very lives (and their freedom it would seem) simply for the honor of Trump.
And I'm not just talking about the typical local yokel "Johnny Six Pack" trailer trash, entire police forces and Sheriffs departments, and other well armed ideological militias are forming, just waiting on Trump's signal.
 He may have won the election, but he hasn't yet won the office.
