If TFG wins

If TFG wins do you think we'll see martial law, suspension of habeas corpus, and concentration camps? It can happen here.

It's heartbreaking our fellow Americans would vote for that. They hate us. I just want them to leave us alone.

Already said we’d see martial law, so yes to that option. No to the latter two options. Those ideas are pretty ridiculous, and if you really think that you or your loved ones are in danger of being placed in concentration camps then you should be down at your local gun store purchasing a firearm, even if some folks might think you have erectile dysfunction.

Ferdinand Marcos suspended the Constitution and with it habeas corpus and arrested the political opposition. The only reason it likely won't happen here is because the economy would go to shit with all the tumult.

Is because most people wouldn’t stand for it. If Trump attempted it, then civil war would ensue, and we’d have a whole lot more to worry about. The only time it’s happened in the U.S. was during the Civil War.

Yes, we will see all of those things.

Our only hope will be if Biden uses his "King powers" prior to January 20.

Do the majority of people want to live in dictatorship????? Again, power in numbers.

Plus we are dealing with a CULT. Cult's have a way of eroding. Or am I assuming.
