Response to H2O Man (Original post)

14. They are indeed surreal.

We could even say they are pandering to Trump's base, and we can definitely say this base walks around with a giant chip on its shoulder, with rage never far from the surface.

Yet where IS the logic?

Are they counting on some show of force on their behalf to cow us into obedience? A show of militia?

It is the oligarchs, the billionaire freaks, who began this coup, and they did it too soon. They realize now they did it too soon; our institutions are holding because Putin moved prematurely, before our career civil service had been sufficiently rotted from the inside.

It is unraveling, this coup, though monied interests are doing all humanly possible to get rid of the Democratic candidates that truly scare them. Bottom line, I'm thinking that the window is narrowing for the Republicans and their oligarch masters. It may be that the only thing now that can help them is some kind of armed force to keep power.

Let's hope they don't work that out.

I'd really rather the republic stayed intact, though it will take years to get it functional again after the Republican cancer that is Trumpism.
