I still can't get over the fact that Trump literally tried to overturn the election after he lost [View all]

I still can't get over the fact that he literally tried to overturn the election after he lost and so many of his party went along with him. What did they think would have happened if they succeeded? Did they really think things would go on as if nothing happened?

The markets would tank as capital fled. There would be general strikes. Commerce would be ----ed. Free nations would withdraw their ambassadors at the request/demand of their voters. There would be riots everywhere. It wouldn't be civil war. It would be anarchy. If our military couldn't pacify Iraq or Afghanistan it's not going to be able to pacify America which has eight times as many people.

If you think about it it would have made Mexico and Canada great.
