Been doing some thinking about this current presidential election & it has got me thinking.
Although I always believed that Trump would get a second term (& part of me still thinks he still might do), I believe that there are some very right wing, young (ish) US politicians who are looking at how this current end game is panning out & considering it to be a game plan for a future run for the presidency themselves.
The stand off over the transition is hurting the democrats badly (not having access to security/intelligence briefings puts Biden & the country as a whole at a massive disadvantage for a start).
I believe Trump will try (& probably succeed) in appointing yet more right wing judges, fast forward execution dates (catnip to his base), maybe try & prosecute/convict someone for having an abortion (not sure how that would work, but it would fire up his base), fracking/drilling & so on. There would be bedlam.
Someone, somewhere is watching this & thinking that with a few tweaks here & there, this is how future republican administrations will act.
As I said earlier, this lack of handover/transition makes it all the harder for the Biden/Harris administration to hit the ground running.
Just a few thoughts & I wonder if anyone here has any thoughts on the subject.
