Diabetic Cyborg Life 8/21: Bluster Meets Reality

The Trump artificial reality he’s living in will come crashing down in about 73 days as the nation votes. Be it days later after counting all the mail-in ballots, or whenever the smoke clears, he will be left broken and angry. The Constitution of 1786 leaves little room for the POTUS to do much as far as delaying the acceptance of the outcome.

The “radical new” thing in voting-by-mail, in existence since the end of the Civil War in 1865, will not be blocked by lawsuits or conjecture. Unless he succeeds in sealing the death of the republic, he will have to accept his defeat in November 2020. That would complete the death of this experiment in egalitarian liberal democracy known as the United States of America.

I pray that is not so, and the structure that still exists will seal his fate and end his bid for reelection in 2020. Stranger things have happened, as the Senate only had one vote for impeachment in 2019. My hope is this era of Trump Corruption of Democracy will only be a push to better things in the governance of these United States of America.

A better fairer democracy can emerge from the ashes and rise as the proverbial phoenix in 2021, as I sure hope that is the case anyway.
