The Donald Chronicles, #49
The water is deepening around us. “The Donald”, a derisive term coined to poke fun at the ludicrous figure he once was, may no longer best describe him. No one is laughing now, as his intentions become crystal-clear. He intends to assume total control of the federal government. He intends to become a dictator.
He has refused to allow anyone in his administration (or former members of his administration) and his family to respond to subpoenas from Congress. This is a tactic employed to see what he can get away with, how far he can go. If he succeeds in this effort his ascent to total power may be unstoppable.
If and when this comes to pass there will be no revolution. It will be a repeat, or near repeat, of Nazi Germany, with the masses cheering him on. He will distribute brown shirts, insignias and automatic weapons to his most ardent supporters, who will then spread out across this country in the hunt for dissenters. That would be me.
This is unthinkable, and, at this pass, I can only hope that there are persons in our government and military that are meeting and coming up with plans to prevent Trump from seizing absolute power.
