SEDITION USA! Last Wednesday a violent mob of right wing Donald Trump supporters , upon his orders, committed an act of Sedition against the US Government. From Title 18 U.S. Code ยง 2384 - Seditious conspiracy: If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both. By delaying the certification of Joseph R. Biden as the next U.S. President, that one act alone could cost the domestic terrorists a hefty prison sentence. And most of this is caused by the lies of Donald Trump and his enablers. These terrorists aside, we know there are still good people out there who have fallen for the lies about conspiracies and election fraud. All of it has been disproved and not a shred of evidence was ever produced to support it. Those good people should shake off whatever illusion they have about him and realize that Donald Trump is a bad man. Thin-skinned, boorish and an inveterate liar (over 22,000 officially as of August, 2020). He is unfit for President and willing to start a civil war to soothe his own ego over an election he rightfully lost. He's not any kind of man to admire or try to emulate, he was always smoke and mirrors. Now reports are that possible attacks are planned at all 50 US State capitols later in the month, and still he continues his lies about the election to stoke up his base. It wasn't enough for him that 5 people died that day, and the world looks at this as the darkest moment in recent US history. Perhaps it won't seem that way to others, but as a born and bred American raised in a military family who loves his country for what it stands for, there could be no more deeper betrayal than the ones Donald Trump has committed against his oath to protect and defend the Constitution. He's a wanna-be dictator who said 'What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening'. Well, believe your eyes now, because it's happening. . . . . . .
