We as a country have a problem, we have a president who won’t leave office when he loses the election, and worse as far as the future of this country is concerned , are the people who support this president . It shows a willingness to sell out our democracy to stay in power. . I’ve brought this up to multiple Republican and they either say he only will leave office if the election is not corrupt and as we have seen throughout history , the problem will be that the dictator will be deciding whether it is corrupt or not. Or their second response is that he is just joking. You don’t get to spit on our flag and constitution and pass it off as a joke. There is no joke in this threat and there has never been a bigger threat to this country. We are picking our future in this election.

When the autocrat says something, take them seriously, they are telling you what they think.

Anyone that says that, is the same un-American shit Trump is. I'd blow them off.

What on earth makes you think Trump won't leave office if he loses the election?

Oh...wait...you've been listening to the Trump hating media again, right?

I've told you before to stop doing that.

The sky has been falling for almost 4 years. Neither side will willingly swallow the bitter pill of defeat, even less so in a tight race or one that switches once all MIB are counted. Both are amping themselves up for violence. It is a vicious feedback loop, but through a mirror. What one side does, the other follows and they have been posturing and escalating for decades.

What makes me think that? Um, I listened to him say what his plan was, sue to not count mail in ballots and install a new SCOTUS justice that will back his suit.

It’s very disheartening. I have lost patience with Trump supporters for the reasons you lay out. They are selling out our country and constitution to this person. Something is very wrong with a certain segment of the American population. It’s concerning and sad

I don’t think Americans are preparing for violence towards each other. We do have a heavily armed right wing segment, but that’s mostly it. Yes, they seem willing to harm. Yes, it’s dangerous

Hillary didn't win. It is the democrats who cannot accept that fact. It is the democrats that are trying to change the rules when they lose. The EC was just fine until Hillary lost. Then the collusion lie. Then the bogus impeachment. Now we have to change the number of supreme court justices. Every time they do not get their way all the rules have to change. It is the left and their brown shirt tactics that we should be in fear of. Not the republicans following the law and the constitution.

If you think the threat of violence is one sided, you aren't paying attention.

Our problem is people that believe as you do. The President will leave if he looses unless there is clear evidence of fraud and the outcome has to be determined in the SCOTUS. I'd say people like you who support the democrats with their fake concern for diversity and their own refusal to acknowledge Trump as the President and winner of the 2016 election. We don't have a dictator, if we did all the questions and accusations you make would already have been decided and there wouldn't be any discussion. As far as spitting on the flag isn't that the tendency of left wing anarchist, socialist, communist, marxist, BLM, Antifa and pro athletes. The future of our democracy will be seriously damaged if the democrats win. Their liberal policies and liberal judges legislating from the bench are designed to strip protections of the constitution such as the threat of packing the court if they gain control of the Congress and White House.

What threat are you seeing? I am not in a militia, and I do not want to kill people or become violent.

Hillary has already told Biden not to concede under any circumstances. I swear, democrats actually do what they accuse Trump of planning to do. Who the hell wants the job but broke dick grifters like the Obama’s and the Bidens? Trump doesn’t need the headaches. Shit, he’s doing America a favor wasting his time trying to fix it.

Like this has anything at all to do with the thread. Bring up a point about Trump and 75% of the time the best the right can do is comeback with a commentt about Hillary, Bill, Obama or Biden. Kind of weak.

This is called humor , this from this countries biggest threat and in my opinion it's biggest enemy. Not the slightest amount of logic or anything real all Trumpified lies that's all the right has. You just have to laugh at a comment like this.

A president who won't leave office when he loses the election. What makes you say that?

You're also attempting to call the man a dictator. Which is just sad, seeing as your lot tried screaming that in 2016 and it still didn't prove to be correct. Hell, everything your side was fearmongering about last time. Never happened.
No concentration camps, no ejection of legal immigrants from the country, no destruction of our constitution. No nothing.

So what makes you think that anyone is going to buy these lies from you, even now?

He has imaginations of being a dictator. He also has a cult following that would burn the Consitution and democracy if it meant Trump was their leader, all while calling themselves patriots of course.


Because it would piss off the 'libs' and that is all they care about.

After all the reports in the news of organizations that actually report it, there were a number of disturbing incidents where ballots being mailed were being thrown in trash cans, mail carriers dumping mail with mail in ballots in it tossing it in a ditch or the ballots discovered being removed from their secrecy envelope that was designed to hide how a person voted till counted. There was one incident reported on tonight where a massive amount of ballots were found in a river! DOJ has got involved in Pennsylvania County where ballots of our military were found in the trash . It was a relatively small number of ballots but the majority of those ballots voted for Trump. Then tonight there was a ruling on a voting scam in Texas during the 2018 election involving several Democrats that are on their way to jail.
My advice is if you can at any means possible go to the polls and vote in person do so. Today they had some people showing up at the polls to vote in person during early voting. One man said it took him over 4 hours to vote but he was not about to mail his vote in. And I suspect all the others who stood in line that long felt the same way.

I will be showing up at the polls on Election Day. I will be equipped with water, snacks and a folding chair in case the line is long. If it is raining, I will wear a raincoat and also carry an umbrella. I will personally cast my vote.

No, there have been more than a couple black on white hate crimes in the last few years. Ignoring them doesn't mean they didn't happen.
