If Trump is Impeached, it Might Be the End of America
Isaac Simpson

Good article. You would probably call me a “Trumpian,” though I assure you I’m not. I’m a Cruzian and a Paulian, but only voted for Trump because the other possibility was absolutely abhorrent. We need balance on the Supreme Court, and we had that. We would have lost it if Scalia was replaced by a liberal (though if Anthony Kennedy or any of the other 4 Justices check out in the next 4 years, we may find the opposite-and equally scary-situation). I would like to point out 3 things. First, California alone bridged the gap between the popular vote. As you noted, this is why the Electoral College exists. As a San Diegan I can assure you voter fraud is rampant, unchecked, and ignored in California. Maybe not 3,000,000 votes, but 1,000,000 votes wouldn't surprise me. Extrapolate that across other states where voter fraud invariably occurred to some extent, and you realize Trump may have a point, albeit one that is stupid to bring up after he won anyway. Second, CNN is no longer middle of the road. For a while they could hide their bias amongst moderates and the left by playing close to center, but now I argue that even MSNBC is less biased. Finally, I would like to point out that the real scare in a Trump impeachment, in addition to your “checking out” theory, is the violence that will ensue. You are correct in asserting that “Trumpians” wouldn't have rioted in the streets, as the progressives are doing now, had Hillary won fair and square. But if they think Trump has been deposed (which is how they will interpret any impeachment that involves anything less than Trump engaging in genocide) will end in armed violence. Remember, Trump supporters are 2nd Amendment supporters. Hillary supporters largely don’t like guns. It’s easy to figure out what’s going to happen. And I don’t support this in any way, but I think you are right to point out, for these very reasons, why it’s time to move on and get through 4 years of Trump.
