Response to Jarqui (Reply #48)

75. I share most of your feelings. Here is what

I both hope and dread.

I hope that the impeachment and trial proceedings have alerted the general public to the extent of corruption in the Senate and administration.

I hope that awareness drives huge numbers to the polls to vote them out.

Then, if Trump and his enablers refuse to accept defeat and leave, claiming that he actually won, I hope the people openly protest in huge numbers and keep it up as strongly and firmly as Hong Cong does.

But I also dread this, because it will get very ugly. Trump & Co. wiil not tolerate protests, no matter how peaceful they are. They will use force to stop protesters. Trump's racist armed militias will back him. I fear that the nation will face a time like the 1960's or worse. I don't want to see that. But we must make a peaceful stand, if necessary. And hope for the best outcome because we cannot .accept a dictatorship.
