And again it is the 1930’s Germany with the US as Germany.

  1. I don’t think there’s much he can do, since elections are controlled by the States, guaranteed by provisions in the Constitution. He might declare a “National Emergency,” and then go on to declare Martial Law, but then Congress and the SCOTUS would likely get involved. Which may not be a good thing, considering Gore v. Bush in 2000.

    • Yes it would seem so, but then when has tRump followed the laws or normal ways of behavior? What if he simply refuses to cooperate and keeps stirring up his base, backed by fox news? Hugs

      • Well, since it’s up to the states, I would imagine they could just declare their voting as final, and uncontested. I’m sure a few Red States would comply with an Executive Order for a recount, but since the Repubs would likely be winners there, what would be the point, except to try to make a winning margin even larger than it already is? I have every confidence that Blue States, like CA, OR and WA would be able to simply ignore any such order, and have their state’s AGs declare so in public, and condemn Hair Furor’s furious demands.
