Would Trump Dump Democracy?

SOME in the GOP wish they could dump Trump, but do millions of Americans wish to see Trump dump democracy?

Trump’s most fervent followers want Donald John Trump to be the 45th President of the United States, whatever it takes to get the job done, democracy be damned. This scares me because a Trump victory in the electoral college looks increasingly difficult or doubtful but not downright impossible. With less than two weeks to go before  Election Day, The Donald is shouting about “conspiracy” and a “rigged” election.

Despite ample researched evidence that widespread vote tampering is not possible and is not happening, depute ample researched evidence that individual voter fraud is relatively rare, despite facts and logic, a Reuters poll show half of the electorate believes Trump about the election system begin rigged, The belief casts doubt on the entire democratic process, from local town councils to national government.

In a brazen act of hypocrisy and chutzpah, like a child having a temper tantrum, “man-baby” Trump refuses to accept the voting results will be valid “unless I win!” He plays the blame game to deny how he shot himself in the foot with his sexist, racist, and xenophobic outbursts.

Instead of thinking matters through, Trump’s most ardent True-Believer followers parrot his words, and some threaten to act on them by launching a violent revolution if he loses.

Why would Trump do and say such things, and why is all this surreal absurdity so dangerous for America and the world?

Police at 2008 Democratic National Convention

Recalled: 2008 Democratic National Convention

With the 2016 Democratic National Convention approaching faster than we may expect,  this piece of narrative from the 2008 DNC is worth recalling.

The Network of Spiritual?Progressives (NSP) asks me to coordinate a conference in?Denver at the 2008 Democratic National?Convention (DNC), which will nominate a candidate for president. Our event overlaps the opening day of the DNC at a Denver sports arena. We hope to nudge Democrats toward more enlightened social values.

The request comes from NSP cofounder Rabbi Michael Lerner. Months earlier, I’d helped him organize an interfaith evening at a Denver mosque. Before an overflow audience, Rabbi?Lerner joined local Muslim, Christian and Jewish clergy to explore options for Middle East peace.
