I'll start with a disclaimer: this post will reference some things Trump did, but it's not about Trump directly. Rather it's about the current leadership of the republican party, which I'll simply refer to as the GOP.
My thesis is this: the GOP has known for some several decades that it's voter base is shrinking. It's response has increasingly been to target the systems and institutions underpinning democracy. During the Trump presidency at the latest the GOP has decided to take the next step and interfere in the elections directly to stay in power.
The GOP has known for some decades that demographic trends do not favor it's traditional base. Faced with that, there have been repeated debates about whether it's appeal needs to broaden. However, time and again the decision was made to focus on the already highly mobilised core voters rather than try to open up. The tea party movement has given the latest big push in that direction.
At the same time, political taboos have started falling, and it has been the GOP leading the push in most cases. REDMAP was a coordinated effort at gerrymandering. Citizens United was a conservative platform. Under Mitch McConnell, the US senate has become a graveyard of bills. A supreme court nomination was held up for months for Partisan reasons.
Now, a president is in office, backed by the GOP, who openly calls the election into question, has instated a personal friend with no obvious qualifications at the head of the postal service and is suggesting his supporters try voter fraud to see if the system is really safe. A president who is already on record soliciting foreign aid in his re-election By their continued support, the GOP is all but openly admitting that they do not care about the integrity of the election.
Now I am not suggesting the GOP will set up Trump as a dictator on November 4th. But neither will they accept the result of the election. They will do what they think they can get away with, until they have a grip on power that's no longer dependant on actual votes. I don't know whether they already know what their preferred end result looks like. But it does seem to me that genuine respect for democracy no longer features in it.
This especially applies to durables like speakers, vehicles, housing, etc.
Alright look guys, California’s regulation has made housing prices soar, the regulations concerning land management hurt the logging industry, and have made the fires worse, the new ruling on sexual assault of a minor is horrible. If you are moving out of California for any of these reason, remember that other states have worked hard to not be California, and you should too.
