Have there ever been claims that are more negative to America, without proof, delivered by more powerful people, with more potentially inciting impact, potentially leading to widening divisions and possibly violent outcomes? Yes - possibly in the lead up to the civil war.
Is there nothing in Trump’s behavior — tweets, speeches and press conferences— that is at this point crossing the line of illegality? After EVERY effort to provide proof has been dismissed, withdrawn, and in some cases basically laughed out of court? How does anyone in his position get away with influencing millions of people to join him in destroying faith in democracy while providing baseless accusations, pushing bizarre conspiracies, sustaining support for disproven allegations, denying the evidence put forth of fair and free elections - often by members of his own party (Trump supporters) who are in far better positions to analyze the validity of the elections? Has the preponderance of actual credible evidence, as determined by our court system, ever been so clearly in favor of one side over another?
This has become not only disgusting and unamerican, I can’t understand why it isn’t illegal. Those who are still supporting Trump, those who are already wishing for Trump ‘24 - it’s time, isn’t it? Time to see that over 30-0 in court cases has to mean something? Time to acknowledge that if there was actual evidence rather than spouting “fraud” and “I won” it would be shared with the courts, shared with media, leaked to media, presented by the administration to the American people. Time to wonder along with me and others whether Trump’s libelous declarations of fraudulent, rigged, stolen elections are tantamount to criminal behavior.
Ultimately uniting around a rejection of this horrible man might not only help the country, it may rid us of Trump, Trumpism, and his dangerous and powerful advisors and sycophants, and allow the Republican Party to regain its place as a respectable conservative, small government, fiscally responsible, ethically sound option for the American people
