6. all your repetitive cut and pasting doesn't convince me that we have zero to to be concerned about

in various arenas and from a multiplicity of angles. You are a normalcy bias-driven poster and I profoundly disagree with your set-in-stone attitude and dismissiveness of anything outside your narrow latticework.

Your entire point of view is based upon adherence to norms and the rule of law that came in pre-Trumpian times, but it is a whole new ballgame now. Those norms and laws have been shit on for almost 4 straight years.

I am NOT posting conspiracy theories at all. All my posts on this subject have come come form well-respected sources who have nothing but the good of the nation and the Democratic party in mind. In fact one could question YOUR agenda in constantly refusing to look at a wide variety of possible scenarios.

you said (not that I am saying this is the only possibility at all)

The only way Trump can retain power is through extra-legal, perhaps violent means, such as using armed federal agents

what the hell do you think he has already been doing, for months

also (from that same paragraph)

This would require the complicity and cooperation of hundreds, if not thousands of federal agents, acting in multiple states, and risking incarceration and possible death from being shot by state police defending vote tallying sites. It would also result in millions of protestors in the streets, and the total collapse of the stock market and the economy.

this assumes a shedload of things that are in no way guaranteed

we simply do not know the framing nor the exact chain of events that may occur
