For a conflicting few hours, it looked like President Trump would snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. I had very mixed emotions about this as The Donald is a terrible president who would, in a wiser country, never have been selected to the ballot in 2016. Its his enemies, who are also my enemies – Pelosi, AOC (AOL?), et al – that made him the least bad choice.
It is now clear that Joe Biden won the election.
All that remains is for the lawsuits to run their course toward the inevitable and the 4-year experiment with a megalomaniac as president will come to an end. Not something I hope to see again in my lifetime.
Let Joe Biden be sworn in as present. Then, the loyal resistance can take up the torch of the Never-Trumpers, take to the streets and to the courts, preen, posture, and protest.
The NTs childish antics since 2016 call for a harsh response from the right now that Democrats are about to reclaim power. Reveling in their victory now, the NTs richly deserve what they are about to get: a taste of their own bitter medicine.
Or perhaps not. As a rule, conservatives and libertarians have more interest in living their own lives than meddling in others’, which makes for weaker displays of overt resistance to liberal regimes.
