Many people mistakenly but understandably believe that the State’s most powerful weapon against its subjects is its superior firepower. While that firepower is obviously important, it’s not the State’s most powerful weapon.
The State’s most powerful weapon is its putative legitimacy. As long as the State is perceived as legitimate, it can do anything it wants to. Once a regime loses its legitimacy, however, its downfall becomes not a question of “if”, but a question of “when”.
The state department is conceding things in negotiations with other countries to influence the outcome of the presidential election. Thousands of illegal voter registrations have occurred in places like Indiana and Virginia. There are millions of dead people on voter rolls and registered in multiple states–and voter fraud is relatively easy to detect. Electoral fraud–the fraud that takes place during the counting process–is even more difficult for those on the outside to trace and definitively track.
With wildly divergent polls providing cover, an professional media backing Hillary more overwhelmingly than self-identified Democrats are, and a bipartisan political apparatus that demands Trump lose, even the discovery of blatant irregularities and outright fraud won’t reverse a Hillary win if it occurs.
Trump’s refusal to offer a blanket acceptance of next month’s election results was the most significant blow he’s landed on the Establishment in the last 18 months, and that’s saying a lot.
If Hillary wins, she’ll enter office with an approval rating below 50% and it probably will not, through the course of her presidency, ever crack 50%. The majority of white Americans will be faced with the stark reality that they haven’t chosen a president for over a decade, and rather than being an aberration, such an outcome is the new normal.
Not just white Republicans, either, but white Democrats as well. White Democrats wanted Hillary in 2008 but got Obama instead. White Democrats wanted Bernie in 2016 and got Hillary instead. A minority of a minority of whites now pick the president.
Wealth inequality will continue to grow, the number of adults out of the workforce will as well, and another recession similar to the one that began in 2008 will hit. Nullification and secession will continue to move from the fringe of political thought into the realm of not just the possible, but the desirable.
And if something like Texit happens, the United States as a political entity is over. If Texas leaves, the electoral college immediately becomes utterly and irrevocably impossible for Republicans to win. Movements in the remaining red states to follow suit start springing up everywhere and the perceived legitimacy of the federal government, already on a decades-long downward trajectory, plummets through the floor.
