Another seditious toady wants Trump to invoke the insurrection act to stay in power.

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/12/gop-lawmaker-says-trump-should-invoke-the-insurrection-act-to-stay-in-power/

A Republican state senator from North Carolina said this week that President Donald Trump should “invoke the Insurrection Act” to stay in the White House and prevent President-elect Joe Biden from taking office.

Local news station WRAL reports that Sen. Bob Steinburg wrote a Facebook post this week in which he favorably quoted Ret. Gen. Thomas McInerney, a Trump-loving conspiracy theorist who has told Trump to suspend habeas corpus and declare a “national emergency” as a means to stay in the White House.



What these assholes don't realize is that invoking the insurrection act, suspending habeas corpus, etc. would do nothing to keep Trump in power. At least not without a military coup, which the military would oppose, not participate in, so it would fail.

2. If there were a military coup, everybody in charge would be murdered, and someone from the military

would take over. The one who took power would also most likely be a Fascist who would start murdering dissenting voices and set off an unending chain of power struggles and assassinations.

People who want a coup are dumb. Democratic governments never emerge from them.
