Our military may be unprepared for a crisis involving a petulant CNC, rendered lame by a good election, who may choose to use military force to favor his followers and beat up his opposition. By his words, plus so many actions, Trump has signaled his willingness to weaken our democracy in the cause of his own potential nationalist dictatorship, so we’re going to be sensitive to the potential for political violence here in the aftermath of this election. I hope Barr and the FBI plus the many generals now serving or retired find their way to keeping their forces loyal to our Constitution and American Rule of Law while avoiding the potential for an obvious pseudo-democracy as a cover for dictatorship. I listened to the cheering of multitudes today — and I think that’s how it must feel to feel free of the prospect of absolute control and absolute power.
