      What if Trump was assassinated?

      Ron Paul and a few others are pretty sure he might get killed at the inauguration (I would be surprised if the conspiracy nuts weren't getting in on this too). So that got me thinking, what if it happened? Obviously, I think everyone here would rather a president-elect not get assassinated regardless of how they feel about the man, but what would be the fallout? Would there be a civil war of some kind? A Pence presidency? Would the decision go to SoH? What would happen to the economy?

      (Purely hypothetical, don't taze me Secret Service bro)

      We would get a Pence Presidency, which funnily enough would probably be even more damaging to progressives whilst alienating republicans even more. Whilst there would not be a war there probably would be an escalation in low level violence as we havent seen much evidence of Trump supporters being able to riot or commit group mob violence.

      I'd just be happy if either party could nominate an actual Statesman, a Leader, there must be a few of those out there instead of criminals and lunatics we had this time.

      You only get lunatics ruling by birth or chance and none of the presidential candidates are lunantics (bar that lad who wears a gumboot on his head and glitter bombs people) - even if they might act a tad unhinged to downplay their strengths. It takes a certain level of craftiness and charisma to get that high on the ladder in a republic.

      I wouldn't be surprised even a little bit. I won't even bat an eye. I've been thinking for weeks now the inauguration will get shot up or bombed or something like that.

      Now I could go into a very long and elaborate explanation about all the reasons I believe he is theoretically a mistake and should not have been elected...seriously, I could probably write you a short book on that. But it most likely wouldn't change anybody's mind, and even if it did it wouldn't matter because he has already been elected. So here's the short version. He's an asshole and I don't particularly care if he dies. Sorry not sorry.

      Let me play Devil's Advocate for a minute...

      What if... Trump actually manages to be a decent president? Sure not all of his decisions will be accepted or liked, but what if in the big picture he ends up making America slightly better (because it'll never be great let's face facts) Should he still be assassinated?

      Regressive leftists will lose their minds if Trump becomes a successful president. All that cognitive dissonance to not see positive news about him because it doesn't fall in line with their narrative, and the fact that their whole virtue signaling protests will always be ineffective.

      After that speech today it's become crystal clear, Trump has zero chill.

      This is indeed interesting times we are living in my friends.
