It’s a funny old fight for democracy, isn’t it? We must not allow someone to run in an election because they might win:
Donald Trump could run for president in 2024 and unleash a violent mob on the US Capitol once more unless he is convicted, Democrat prosecutors at his impeachment trial claimed.
Prosecutors said Mr Trump had shown “no remorse” for inciting a mob to attack the seat of US democracy on Jan 6 and would “do it again” if given the chance.
They said it could be “only just the beginning” of political violence in America and the “threat was not over”. His supporters had been following the “orders of their commander-in-chief,” they said.
On the third day of the trial Jamie Raskin, the lead prosecutor, said: “Is there any political leader in this room who believes that if he is ever allowed to get back in the Oval Office, Donald Trump would stop inciting violence?
Of course, he could only win if a plurality of the voters actually voted for him, which is why he must be banned from running, to save democracy.
It’s all rather Soviet really, anyone can run, course they can, but only if they already support The Party. After all, no one rational would not support The Party…..
