Response to BamaRefugee (Reply #11)

22. Excellent point and something we

should all be thinking about very seriously. For nearly 4 years, Trump has been moving toward more and more authoritarianism. We have seen it, talked about it, but done nothing.

Moyers is exactly right that it is now happening before our eyes. Trump is consolidating his power, putting a private militia in place at the WH, and ready for an all out open coup. Make no mistake. He will try it. He is not just posturing now. He is preparing for it and has already taken the first step. Whether he succeeds depends on various factors, e.g. military response, leaders who might oppose him and rally people behind them, the ability to maintain communications against orders to disrupt Internet, phone, and media services, and many other factors.

We should think now about what we will do when things get worse, as they will the more Trump realizes that he does not have a chance at the polls.
