We'll never know
You don't have to "know" in order to form a hypothesis, or offer a guess. I'd assumed you were just throwing out empty phrases that get thrown around by your fellow right-wingers, without having any clue what you actually mean by the words, let alone any reason for believing in the words.

It looks like I assumed correctly. I think deep down, you know that Donald Trump isn't going to solve any real problems for you. But you're mad, and he's a good middle finger to show your contempt for the world.
because the election has already been rigged.
How?

My hope would be to see Trump elected and then liberals would ask for a national divorce.
No need for Trump to be elected. Your divorce has been granted. Feel free to leave the country. From what you’ve said, you don’t want to contribute to it, and you hate both what America was and what it has become. You can leave your keys in the tray by the door.

Ironically, I was pointed to this TED talk from a video that popped up in my YouTube recommendations from a survival channel.

https://youtu.be/Yilgr2SJ3xQ?si=bW3TvfVg2NqSoAxg

The topic is what factors predict political unrest and, notably, who is typically behind civil wars when they break out.

It's worth watching in it's entirety, in my opinion.

I’d never heard the term ‘anocracy’ before. Thanks for sharing the video.

Thanks for this, honor. I'm tempted to buy her book.

I wonder how this will affect Maggat opinions of their guy?

Or is Matt Drudge now part of the Deep State?

PS- don’t bother to tell me the Daily Mail isn’t reputable, that’s not the point. Maggats don’t read, and they don’t have discernment, but a Drudge headline? That’s real news to them.

Add me to the list of those thankful to you for posting that link. It made perfect sense to me. I have long suspected what she is warning us about is quite true. MAGA extremists, most of whom seem to be white males, make no secret of their irrational fear and resentment of the prospect that white people of European descent cannot much longer constitute the majority of the American populace. That's precisely why they are so opposed to any attempts to promote diversity, equity and inclusion and disparagingly refer to them as "Wokism." Anyone opposed to DEI initiatives and acceptance, either haven't a clue about what these terms really mean, or are blatant, hateful bigots in my strong opinion. I couldn't care less what race, culture, religion or gender my political leaders identify as, as long as they are honest, competent, scientifically literate, law abiding and dedicated to democracy and equality under the law for everyone.

No precept or claim is more suspect or more likely to be false than one that can only be supported by invoking the claim of Divine authority for it--no matter who or what claims such authority.
