We cannot tolerate this treason

I remember shortly after the January 6 Insurrection Attempt a friend, no Trumper, said something like, "the media is blowing this all out of proportion. It was a riot. Like the riots in Portland." 

We now know that this was no riot, but part of a coordinated attempt by the president of the United States to subvert democracy, intentionally and knowingly nullify an election, and make himself a virtual dictator. Had he succeeded, and he clearly came closer than we realized at the time, it would definitively have meant the end of the constitutional republic founded in 1789 and the beginning of an American dictatorship. The forces that tried to pull this off are still active, and by and large control the Republican party. They are still trying to subvert democracy... and next time they will have learned from 2020 and will not make the same mistakes. With or without Trump himself, the threat is very real, and if you don't see that, I think you are being willfully blind. 

And speaking of willful blindness, I am convinced that the evidence is now overwhelming and the time has come to charge Trump himself and his principal co-conspirators with sedition, seditious conspiracy, and various other crimes related to attempting to subvert the 2020 election. If we do not hold these people accountable, we will lose our democracy, period. I am a patriot... these assholes are not... and I think our loyalty to our country demands that we not accept that these traitors be allowed to get away with this. We must demand that justice be done.
