What do you worry about with a Trump presidency?

WWIII?
Nuclear war?
Loss of rights?
Economic collapse?
new totalitarian state?
Human rights calamity?
increased Islamic terrorism?
internal race or some kind of civil war?

all of the above (I have generalized anxiety disorder)?

Well? what eats at you and what do you fear? Let it out but please be specific.

The CIA or other elements of the American Deep State will probably murder him.

My deepest fear brought about by Trump would be a degradation of this Republic and possible replacement with Oligarchy. The pieces for this have been systematically put in place since he came into office in personnel and legislation/EO and it is unclear if the safeguards against this are active and free to do so. If the FBI and Judiciary are quiet, this could happen relatively quickly and efficiently.

Coups are unthinkable and simply do not happen in democracies (especially ours). So it is bizarre to even mention. Anyone even attempting one will be jailed. In other words, totally far-fetched.
There have been at least two coups in the US: The Kennedy Assassination and the 9/11 Patriot Act.

I think the Trumpites will manufacture a black-flag terrorist incident and seize control in the ensuing hysteria, the same way Hitler did with the Reichstag Fire.

It's easy to keep America safe, if you have arranged the danger yourself.

I don't know if Johnson had anything to do with Kennedy's assassination, but I think it highly probable that the CIA or other agency of the Deep Government was involved.

To be politically neutral, I should have mentioned the hounding of Nixon out of office.

As for W. Bush, apart from the later 9/11 and Patriot Act hysteria, a rightful president was ousted by Bush's phony-baloney "win" in Florida.

If Bush had not been "selected" by the corrupt Supreme Court, most likely there would never have been 9/11 nor Iraq War, and some action might have started dealing with Global Heating.

So sad that mass-murderer war criminal Bush and his enablers managed to do so much harm.

A coup is a military take over, those weren't coups. You could argue that Lincoln's actions in Maryland and Kentucky during the Civil War were coups as the army under his orders deposed the state governments and imposed juntas. The Army attempted an abortive coup during the Confederation but Washington (for whom the coup benefited) told them to stand down as he was a committed republican. There was another aborted coup during WW2 by the American Nazis that fell apart when their intended Führer turned out to be loyal to FDR and warned the Senate of the Nazi plot before they could make their move. The Senate didn't do anything (a good number were fascists) but it made the looming coup too obvious to move forward without serious loyalist resistance as happened in Spain.

A coup has never properly been attempted in America though more becuase of bad planning than any institutional barriers.

some delightful predictions from tecoyah:

This country lacks the testicular fortitude for such actions, nut [sic] will indeed give matching jumpsuits that compliment Trumps complection [sic].

Kushner will be charged with treason and Donny will be given the Nixon choice.

I fear he will start suffering from dementia, especially since 2nd term likely, and he'll reach "that age". :eek:

Absent impeachment I fully expect a coup attempt within 2 years (probably less) unless Trump seriously changes course.
David I commend your foresight your prediction was made many months ago Feb 2017, but has now come to pass .
