    Well, I just want government restrained, our personal liberties and freedoms protected, the courts to obey the Constitution, etc... You know, crazy stuff like that.

    So, you want a coup against a duly elected President. You want Congress to be able to sift through to Executive branch, without restriction, and all that after a 2 year SC groundless investigation. And in this thread, the EC destroyed by circumventing the electoral process in... wait for it... the Constitution! You know, the document you are "protecting". LOL!
    Now, I guess you are talking about the collective "you", since you know nothing about me as evidenced by what you follow with, true ignorance.

    God only knows what you are referring to with the Civil War and WWII.

    But, then you say it is certain that Trump will not exit the Presidency? I would think that would be a huge story, especially on the left wing outlets. Where are you sourcing this from? You better let MSNBC and CNN know. Can't believe they missed that one!
    I said it's getting hard to argue against a coup, I didn't say I wanted a coup at this time or before much longer. Nor did I say a coup was either in the offing or desired. You're also working overtime trying to make me your minder of MSNBC and CNN neither of which need you or I to advise 'em, lead 'em, direct 'em.

    While we're at it you'd need to know the armed forces oath is to the Constitution and not to any one or single person or to any person period. Washington successfully proposed the oath at the Constitutional Convention over which he presided. So the oath was established as the first law Congress enacted. The Founders accepted that the oath gave the military commanders their course of action should a tyrant ruler ever seize power. The Founders established that the armed forces oath is to Constitution and to "We the People" who established it as the law of the land for us to live by.

    You need to know the military oath to the Constitution is to the three branches of the government, their being separate and coequal, to the system of checks and balances, to include the method of selecting the Potus and its processes, procedures, practices to include the specifics of the succession from one Potus to the next Potus. The First Amendment is btw the First One. So given the Putin-Trump Rowers haven't any restraints dissembling the Constitution it's fair to say they are proceeding at their own risk.

    When we see what Putin-Trump and Rowers are doing to the Constitution we have to think of an action of state of some sort that is American in its nature. That is, Constitutional as Washington conceived of it. The only preventative would be Trump relinquishing the presidency after a free and fair legit election that he'd lose. Yet we know chances of Trump leaving office voluntarily or peacefully irrespective of the year are slim and none and Slim already left town.

    We're also wondering whether we'll ever again see a free and fair legit election of Potus while Conservatives/ Republicans continue to carry Putin's water for him. Which brings us to a second national reconstruction under what's left of the Constitution which itself would need to be reconstructed...a second national reconstruction being another topic entirely. It's not as if someone just thought of it today either.

    EC is the ultimate and slavery driven Rube Goldberg invention thrown into the elections of Potus. It's become the way Putin Conservatives and Trump Republicans can overcome the popular vote consistently and predictably. Back in 1969 however the House voted to amend the Constitution to abolish the EC while the Senate never held a vote on it.

    Two Potus elections --1800 and 1824 -- had to be decided in the House. Five times a candidate has won the popular vote and lost the election.
    Andrew Jackson in 1824 to John Quincy Adams;
    Samuel Tilden in 1876 to Rutherfraud B. Hayes;
    Grover Cleveland in 1888 to Benjamin Harrison;
    Al Gore in 2000 to George W. Bush;
    Hillary Clinton in 2016 to Donald J. Trump.

    In 6 of the past 7 elections of Potus the Republicans have lost the popular vote. Yet twice they got their guy into the White House -- GW Bush and DJ Trump. Chad and Fad. Bill Clinton in 1992 was elected Potus with only 43% of the popular vote which is how dismal the popular vote has become for Republicans -- GHW Bush lost reelection with only 37% of the PV.

    We see how in the past couple of years the ECV has become central to the Putin-Trump-Rowers war on democracy and the Constitution. Everyone knows btw we have a republic. What no one knows is how long we can keep democracy and the Constitutional order in it. The Putin-Trump Rowers have become what we fought against which means they want USA to be more like Putin's Russia than the other way around. All they need to get their anti Constitution way is for good men to do nothing. Beginning Impeachment will advance the public opinion groundwork across the land for the good men to conduct a Constitutionally decisive action of state and government.

    We see how one's conscious awareness and basic understanding of reality can fail him. Totally. And repeatedly besides. There's no other explanation of it unless we want to say it's deliberate and willful.

    When you cannot win according to the rules, change the rules.
    Wrong. The idea of the EC since the year 2000 is to assure as much as possible the Republican for Potus overcomes the popular vote to win anyway. Then to try to put the blame on California. You guys are so serious about this you're funny.

    You need to get used to the words enshrined in the Constitution that it's up to the states. Each state runs its own election for every office on the ballot, each time, every time and indefinitely. If you don't like it then amend the Constitution rather than put on sheep's clothing while trying to shred it.
