The popping sounds heard after that won't be corn kernels.
When you try to replace a republic with a banana republic, because you thought you could, it becomes an extinction-level event for one side or the other.
I can give you odds on which side that turns out to be.
If anyone is planning to sit that one out indefinitely, "may your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget you were our countrymen." If the theft of a presidential election isn't enough to equal a Fort Sumter moment, the country is already too dead to care about.
Right now, it's quiet enough to hear sphincters tightening from the DC Beltway to Hollywood.
Call that toss in the air, gents.
