This grave crisis is overlooked. After being lied to for months, many millions of people *do believe* the election was stolen from Trump. Yesterday, a majority of GOP representatives voted to overturn it. Try to sanction the liars, and we'll be told "what about their supporters?"

I don't think people have come to terms with what is happening. I can't believe the Senate and the House just went home. Even after all the mayhem yesterday, majority of GOP representatives *still* tried to throw out the election without even pretending to have a basis for it.

What wake-up call do folks need? Are we going to argue that our institutions are resilient until they do succeed in throwing out elections? They walked into a building riddled with bullet holes where people had died trying to storm it and voted to overthrow the election anyway.

This isn't a partisan problem. The crisis the United States faces is far beyond ideal tax rates & different budget priorities. There is a bloc with growing power at every level that has decided elections can be optional if they lose—and they aren't going to go away by themselves.

We seem to have forgotten who commands federal law enforcement and national security.

I feel crazy that this is so obvious to me and so many are pretending that everything is okay now.

Anyone can predict the present when the present is here. It takes some effort, though not much, to predict the near future. But you have to put in the effort. The demophobes are not.

I told everyone that we were in for a new kind of civil war, no one wanted to hear it.

This is very important. So many people believe that the problem is "just Trump". IT IS NOT. It will not magically disappear when Trump is out of the White House. It goes much, much deeper.

It saddens me that the problem really is within the church. Political ideology wrapped into faith walk is not how it is supposed to be. The church needs more people who realize it’s all about the gospel and striving to walk as He did
