For about a year and a half, I started to be concerned about the US going up in an unsustainable crisis that would change what we consider normal. I was not aware of the Covid pandemic, but I intuited a world tragedy that would change the entire world, and we would need to be ready and act promptly to diffuse the threat. My main concern trigger comes from – how the administration manages everything – contrary to the constitution – and the order of law. Four years ago, my concern started growing. I predicted the win of candidate Trump and I saw the potential of a civil war triggered by him, as I envisioned since the early 70s if several issues were not changed in the following 30 to 40 years. Mostly, socio-economic issues that detriment the life from the top middle class to the bottom. Some changes took place but not significant to straighten our future path. The winning of Trump was the sign of the proximity of a social turmoil that could affect the country for a long time to come. Including the potential of an armed battle between the far right and the left. Likely as well, requiring the intervention of the reserves or the armed forces.
Through these past four years, which had been an emotional agony for me, all signs forecasting the destruction of the fabric of America sprouted and seemed unchallenged. The efforts of the democrats starting an investigation about the election meddling failed. There are no explainable reasons for that but a severe abuse of power that is only seeing, in underdeveloped countries. But we are not even remotely close to that, so what happened?
Trump cued white Americans to come out of their rock and represent their anger against the establishment, as we saw in Charlottesville, VA. The start of white supremacists attacking everything that Trump is against, and they have never left the picture, but they have increased it.
Then Covid became the worst threat the country had faced ever, and we know why. The administration not only failed to curve the danger, but it increased the risks by providing false and irresponsible information manipulating everything that could help us to avoid the extensive spread and several thousand deaths. As it is presumable, the effects do not stop right there. Massive unemployment, a stop of the economy by literally halting the needed level of consumption, has created a situation comparable to the great depression. The results of this are too large and complicated to be mentioned in a single blog.
The critical issue that places us at stake is Trump and the people that support his actions and policies. I feel justified to call Trump evil and accuse him of infecting millions of Americans with his evil streak. Literally, the country is not just divided now, but both ends have become the enemy of the other one, and people are becoming jaded, apathetic, and passed the fence of losing hope and turning into direct anger instead.
All that is in the past now, A past that threatens everything we had before four years ago. Checks and balances have been literally trashed, and the regime commits crime after crime, and the left seems paralyzed, unable to do anything about it. Yes, but the reason they have not neutralized this domestic threat is that democrats require legal grounds to act, and Trump has covered any angle for retaliation, such as having full control over DOJ. As well, Democrats have been avoiding retaliation from the large numbers of white supports of Trump. Trump’s insanity has not stopped, but it is providing us the needed mechanisms to charge Trump and to ensure a legal popular presidential election. Same that he openly threatened with because he is not going to lose the white house, as he has stated a number of times.
The situation is: the lives of millions of Americans are a stake from several fronts. 30 million people will lose health insurance next year if he stays. The safety of all minorities will vanish. The chance of controlling the effects of Covid is not even considered. Our relationship with several tough nations is at stake. The potential of a civil war is growing. Trump threatening to withhold the white house at any price represents the lowering of our values and what the US stands for. There are several other important issues, but these are the tragic threats I feared more than four years ago.
Whatever results from creating the “Democracy Act,” invoked by Nancy Pelosi, aims to make accountable everyone consenting, this precarious situation which perhaps will not save our country. The destruction cannot be stopped, but a reconstruction of our democracy can be started. Still, the next administration will face an unprecedented crisis that will require perhaps more than one generation to fix – from the infrastructure of our social order, economic, to the legal, even constitutional realms that have been severely damaged by this administration. We all will have to face the results and compromise with a new “normal.” A new normal that will require the dedication from all the Americans, it will require sacrifice and work. This is the reality created by President Trump, and no one wanted, except disloyal supremacists.
If Trump is not jailed in the company of all his crooks, the end of this threat can only be the destruction of the fabric of America. The fabric that millions of Americans weaved through two-plus centuries. All destroyed by a single man!
If Trump gets away with murder, it is estimated trillions of dollars will be the gain of his and the people behind him.
Sadly, although not too late to act, it is actually late to avoid the worse damage the nation will face for a long time to come. Once Trump let the genie out, we will not be able to put it back in. That is our new normal, and we all will have to pay the same price.
