I do not want to sound hyperbolic, but in this election year, we, as a country, are facing a crucial choice. Our decision in five months will determine if we continue our form of Republic Democracy or capitulate and devolve into an autocratic form of governance.

Our choices are stark. We will have the option of reelecting Joe Biden and despite the naysayers over at Fox and The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board, the US economy is not underwater. We have a current unemployment rate of 3.7%, which means all those freshly minted college graduates have an excellent opportunity to find a job. Yes, inflation is still high, but it’s coming down. People’s retirement savings have increased overall, and the economy is moving in the right direction.

Most importantly, we have a President focused on doing what is suitable for the country, working to preserve and protect our democratic form of government according to what the Founders had envisioned. Like most previous presidents, he placed the country first because he believed in the founding principles and used all his political skills to help the country grow by building on basic building blocks that make the US a democratic republic.

During the four years Biden has been in office, he focused on doing the work of the people, the job they elected him to do. What has Trump been doing? He was crying like a baby. Complaining the election was rigged and stolen from him. It wasn’t. Trump lost. But his fragile ego and narcissism wouldn’t let him accept the fact the people didn’t want him sitting behind the Resolute Desk any longer. Rejection for someone like Trump is tough, especially when he has developed a pseudo-personality of John Barron or John Miller, media consultants with the “lowdown” on Donald Trump. He created fictitious personas to brag about his accomplishments, puff himself up to the press, and generate interest and buzz. Some would call what Trump did cachet. Others would call it a scam.

Bringing us to the reality that Trump’s winning the presidency was indeed a fluke based on flackery and fakery. What business experience he claimed to have had was all based on the fabrications he concocted when posing as John Miller or John Barron to talk to the press about his accomplishments as Donald Trump.

His smoke, mirrors, and three-card Monte were all he needed to get Republicans to get on board with backing him for the most crucial job this country has to office a citizen fully thinking and believing they had what it would take to “manage” him. As to getting the very wealthy to back him in 2016, well, that was easy. They told him in the language he understood, “Give us tax cuts, or we’ll cut your fucking gonades off.”

As to the general populous, Red State’s racist scumbag politicians were, and are still, furious about a Black family being temporary occupants in their Whitehouse despite the fact Obama was a damn good President and, under his administration, brought us out of the recession the country was in, handle a potential Ebola issue which could have been a significant catastrophe, got the Affordable Health Care Act passed, and authorized Seal Team Six to take out Osama bin Laden, which they did.

Trump’s four years in office were stuff nightmares are made of. Muslim bands that the Supreme Court struck down failed attempts to find voter fraud in the election he won. He fired Jim Comey because he wouldn’t swear loyalty to him and let Mike Flynn off the hook.

He hired and fired Jeff Sessions as AG, then hired sycophant Bill Barr who was pushing the unitarity executive crap and got himself impeached twice, the first one for trying to get a bribe out of Zelenskyy by holding up promised aid, the second one for attempting to thwart the will of the people and nullify the election so he could declare martial law and stay in office. Under his administration, the country had the largest mass shooting occur in Las Vegas and did nothing about it, and mismanaged the COVID-19 pandemic, where one million American Citizens died. Sat watched TV while rioters were ransacking the House and Senate, threatening to hang his Vice President because he refused to commit an illegal act and stop the count of the state’s electoral votes. After all, he had a hissy fit because he lost to Biden. By now, you have realized the one major accomplishment of his administration was keeping his gonades.

So here we are in the first week of June, discussing for the first time in our country the absurdity of Donald Trump’s conviction from the viewpoint that he might win this year’s election and once again take residence in the White House. The mere thought of that scares the shit out of me for obvious reasons. And just for the record, I’m not alone in my concern. Many of our allies are stocking up on adult diapers because they are crapping up a storm. They fully know if Trump manages to win, Trump’s retribution will not be limited to what he does here in the United States. He will partner with Putin, Xi, and Kim Jong Un, and the world order as we currently know it will for sure become the despotic nightmares we read about back in High School in 1984, Fahrenheit 451, The Hunger Games, and Handmaid’s Tale.

It won’t happen all at once, but it will take place. It may not start as starkly as the dystopian novels I mentioned, but it will happen. What we know as democracy and representative government here in the US won’t give way to autocracy immediately, but it will happen. Taiwan might not fall to China immediately, but it will happen. North Korea won’t cross the DMZ immediately, but it will happen. Israel might not fall, but it will happen.

If Trump defeats Biden, there will be a significant political shift in the world’s international politics. He will have help from foreign entities who want nothing more than to see the US falter, flail, and become just another failed world power in the arch of history. They will pay Trump’s price. He wanted a billion dollars from the oil companies in exchange for the promise he would let them have free reign to drill anywhere their little greedy hearts desire and expand the tax cuts. Hell, it’s not unthinkable to see another civil war break out to move from democracy, with Trump leading the charge to move the country to an autocratic theocracy that many of the founding fathers wanted to get away from.

In the meantime, Trump will be focusing his attention not on Europe or China because they will have paid him to stay out of their affairs. His sycophants, Stephen Miller, Mike Flynn, Steve Bannon, Roger Stone, and Peter Navarro, will be pushing him to invade Mexico, Venezuela, Guyana, Cuba, and Brazil. Why the hell not? Mexico, Venezuela for their oil, Guyana for its gold and diamonds, Cuba for beachfront property, and Brazil for the hell of it. You’re not an absolute dictator if you’re not at war with somebody, and the military will need something to do since Trump pulled the US out of NATO and closed all the military bases in Europe, which will no doubt be part of the terms he negotiates with China, Russia, and North Korea.

It’s a bit far-fetched, you say? Is it? Remember, we’re talking about Donald Trump, who is not a long-term thinker, nor is he remotely in any way a strategist. Trump is as transactional as they come, and for the right price, he will sell what’s left of his soul, and if he can, he will stiff you without so much as a thank you.

Trump for sure wants to end democracy and replace it with autocracy with him as dictator. The question is, what do you want? If you want to keep our democracy, then stop bitching about Biden’s age and make sure you vote. If you have friends who aren’t registered, help them get registered.
