You're a good person, G18, but I still have to ask:You have hit on it here. I'd probably argue the scales tipped for me about a week after the election when it became clear where this was headed, but the unwillingness to accept the results of the election is not a line I'm willing to cross personally. Absent fair and free elections and the acknowledgment of the results, who are we?
Prior to the election, my choice was binary as I'm not a third party candidate subscriber. So I needed to choose between a repugnant man who thought only about himself but whose policies I could get behind for the most part and a past his prime candidate receiving push to pass far left legislation. It wasn't a particularly hard choice for me in early November. But it also wouldn't be a hard choice for me post 1/6/2021. It just would be a different choice.
How does a decent person like you make it through all of the previous decade of disgusting fraud and corruption by that man to the 1/6 tipping point? Are you really that afraid of Democrats that you'd prefer gross corruption with authoritarian/fascistic tendency to Democrats in the absence of overt insurrection; and if so, why?
