So, let's juxtapose two different articles

 The first:  When Deplorables Fight Back.

Knowing a train wreck could happen is not the same as preventing one. A 1990 National Intelligence Estimate predicted: “Yugoslavia will cease to function as a federal state within one year and will probably dissolve within two. Economic reform will not stave off the breakup.” This was made public through a leak to the Washington Post.

The NIE was stunningly prescient. Yugoslavia imploded a year or so later. Everyone knew the train wreck was likely. Nobody stopped it.

Our elites could reduce tensions. They could rein in their street commies, renounce threats of court packing, and reverse their position on abolishing the Electoral College and statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Perhaps they could even say they will accept a President Trump electoral win, agree that it’s unacceptable to be fired for attending a Trump rally, and so on. Congress could reprimand, censure, or expel its members who endorse violence against political opponents. Longer term re-stabilization could devolve power from Washington, D.C. to state governments. California could ban pickups and mandate abortions, while Texas could do the opposite. Nobody would love it, but the republic would survive.

None of this should be taken as endorsing violence. Predictions are not wishes. There still is time for our would-be rulers to step away from the precipice.

Yes, there is still time for our would-be rulers to step away, but they won't.  You know they won't.  They're all in, with the fraud, the criminal behavior.  And we the people know it.

Which leads us to this:  2020 just keeps shitting in our mouths

The Cucks are suddenly running scared - the rubes they've been working all these years are roused, pissed off and looking for the nearest pitchfork. And I don't mean that metaphorically. ALL OF THE GUNS sold out over Thanksgiving weekend.


Having been to several of my local Merchants 'o Death in the past few days, I can confirm that just about any weapon that can be used to repel government thugs is sold right the hell out.  Ammo?  Gone.  There were a few esoteric calibers still on the shelf, some of which I haven't ever seen before.  I found the one shop that was selling 9mm, limiting it to two boxes per person.  So I walked out with two boxes.  I found another shop that had single-aught buckshot, and I got a box of that as well.  Every single person I know is stocking up on ammo if they can, and planning for the worst.

In November, Americans bought enough weapons to outfit the USMC.  Guns are gone.  Hell, I can't even find a Ruger 10/22 in the shops around here.  The only guns left are in the $1000 and over range.  People are freaking the hell out and getting ready to fight.  And the Left keeps pushing, and pushing, and pushing.

I need to look for more ammo.

I would hope like hell for the Democrats to make DC a State, because that would mean the Federal Government would have to move away from there entirely, since the black letter text of the Constitution requires that the seat of the Federal Government would be from land that is NOT a part of any State. (Article I, Section 8, Clause 17)

The Founders required that the Seat of the Federal Government be separated from the control of any State so as not to give that State undue influence over the Federal Government, specifically because of what happened to the members of the Continental Congress on June 21, 1783. Some 80 soldiers, who hadn't been paid, marched on the Congress' meeting place in Philadelphia, and verbally abused and physically threatened the members. The Congress had to flee the city when neither State not local authorities would protect the members.

That was the main reason why the 23rd Amendment was passed, so that residents of the Federal District could vote in Presidential election, giving them the same number of Electoral Votes as the least-populous State. Democrats want it to become a State solely to gain two additional Senators, since the only Electoral Vote from DC that has not been cast in favor of the Democratic candidate was a Faithless Elector in 2000, who refused to cast a vote at all.

It is the same with Puerto Rico, just two more "gimme" Senators in the Dem column.

Having lived in Puerto Rico a while back, I can say with all certainty that bring PR in as a state would be the biggest mistake the US could make with that territory. What we need to do is cut them loose and let them do whatever the hell they want to do. But we already have third-world shitholes within our borders (San Fransicko, Detroit) and we don't need to add to them.
