      No confusion on my part. Just citing your post concerning my post on extremism in the military.

        I've always believed that a modern civil war would look like it does now -- violent clashes between political groups on a street level, and continued political division, chaos, and deadlock on a state and federal level -- only much more intensified than it is now. I never believed this would look anything like the state clashes of the first civil war, and still don't. But this can't be good...


        Texas has been joined by 17 other red states in its longshot Supreme Court lawsuit to try and overturn Donald Trump’s election defeat.

        Texas attorney general Ken Paxton launched legal action against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, which were all won by Joe Biden as he claimed the White House. The 17 states, all of which supported the outgoing president, have now filed an amicus brief in support of the case to throw out Mr Biden’s wins in those four states.

        Mr Paxton claims that the Covid-related changes to election procedures in the states violated federal law, and he wants the US Supreme Court to block those states in the electoral college.

          I'm in one of the States being sued, and I think the inter-State lawsuit is great.

          Legal opinion is divided, but I think most experts believe it has little chance of success.

              Why would the states care about giving him money?

              Whether there is or isn't a legal case is beside the point. Perception is a serious issue here. If the states feel their candidate was cheated in a rigged election, that's a bit of a problem.

                But we already know, and so do they, that their candidate was not cheated. This is something else.

                defeated, not cheated.

                  I don't think 'robotically' following is a bad thing, and there is no defense of either side of this argument so you can poke holes in any speculation.

                  I think we have a pattern of likely arrangements from the first civil war.

                    "Not cheated" is a matter of opinion at this point. Again, whether he was or wasn't, it's about perception. If all these states and representatives believe their candidate was cheated, then God help this country when Biden and his leftist authoritative federal goons try and enact executive orders and pandemic mandates. God help us all at that point.
