Contributing sentiments towards policy:

10% : The enemy today is domestic: a "lawless president," Nagl and Yingling continue, who "is assembling a private army capable of thwarting not only the will of the electorate but also the capacities of ordinary law enforcement.
18% : The principle mechanisms of this developing anti-election strategy are at least five-fold: racist and partisan voter suppression in key battleground states, replete with the sending of armed "poll-watchers" into minority precincts; attacking the legitimacy of the mail-in ballots that are required by the pandemic Trump spread across the nation; preparing an army of lawyers to contest the election in states that go for Biden, with the expectation that a 6-3 right-wing Supreme Court will side with Trump; preparing violent fascist and white supremacist mobs to go into the streets to intimidate voters, protesters, and policymakers; preparing to declare martial law and putting in the streets paramilitary forces (from the Department of Homeland Security, especially ICE and Border Patrol), accountable only to the president.
36% : (Try to explain the Electoral College to someone from another country, some day.
27% : It's about to get even more extremely to the right of public opinion with the highly unpopular Trump's soon-to-be-successful appointment of a deeply reactionary jurist, Amy Coney Barrett, a near certain candidate to cast highly unpopular votes to abrogate women's abortion rights, to push millions of Americans off the health insurance rolls in the middle or wake of a great pandemic, and to validate the privatization of Social Security.
31% : The new Congress is seated on January 3, 17 days before the presidential inauguration and three days before it votes to accept or reject Electoral College votes.
15% : Bush would have lost Florida and the Electoral College if the Florida re-count had not been stopped.
99% : When that is gone, we've moved to a different sociopolitical world."
99% : We the people will have to make it clear in the streets, workplaces, and public squares that the nation will become permanently ungovernable (and unprofitable) unless and until the government, including its military, agrees to remove "the most dangerous criminal in human history" from the world's most powerful office.
98% : means both constitutional and extra-constitutional to keep it at bay.
97% : It's a world where we can't rely on "parchment barriers" to authoritarian rule - especially "parchment barriers" from a national charter that was designed with the explicit goal of keeping democracy at bay.
96% : The All-Too Constitutional Rolling Coup
14% : There's nothing "unconstitutional" about Trump using his bully pulpit to try to discredit mail-in ballots or even to rally right-wing vote intimidators.
14% : There's every reason to expect another absurd, openly despotic, authoritarian, and nonsensical decision titled Trump v. Biden this January.
9% : The same goes for the U.S. Senate, the body that is about (as I write on Thursday, October 15th) to approve the Christian fascist Coney-Barrett.
8% : That is an absurd violation of one person, one vote (Democrats significantly out-number Republicans in the House), but so what?
4% : Like the nation's aristo-republican Founders, they do not remotely believe in democracy and are ready to use
