When Donald Trump ginned up a massive crowd of 8,000 of his followers, we did not realize that not only was his plan to interrupt the vote-counting process and “hang Mike Pence.” He had something far more nefarious in mind. Yes, he pointed the mob at our precious iconic Capitol Building and encouraged their rage at all of the members of Congress. Yes, he invited them to Washington to stage an unprecedented coup against our Democracy, which fortunately failed. But this clearly, this not-top-of-the-class old racist White guy had another muscled arm in his strategy.
Trump’s antics have been so clownish, so inept, but we laugh at our own peril. People need to take President Joe Biden’s words to heart. We must listen closely when he uses words such as “an all-out assault on our democracy.” And “we need to act swiftly,” because we must “protect the people’s sacred right to vote:”
‘We’re witnessing an all-out assault on our democracy — and we need to act swiftly to protect the sacred right to vote. We need the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act.’
As the president says, “this is not hyperbole.” He is warning that America is still on the edge of a deep, dark precipice. The other part of Trump’s plan included getting his rioters to fight with members of ANTIFA (anti-fascists) and Black Lives Matter (BLM). Wisely, all but the ex’s ragtag violent army were away from the violence. Trump’s strategy was to get a big fight going. Then, he could legally declare Martial Law, waltz right in, and crown himself a dictator glued to his throne.
An American president can claim Martial Law during an insurrection, a riot, or during civil unrest. Now, the Republican-dominated states are frantically killing votes.
This is the beloved deceased Representative John Lewis who fought and bled for the right to vote:

‘How strange it is that women and blacks will be the ones saving Democracy for white men.
America is doing what it was born to do, growing, changing and reaching its full potential.’
