Hey Umair Readers
Another round of Umair dystopia, with no Umair solution to wriggle our way out of it.
For sure, Mr. Trump is not going to takes loss well. We should anticipate some upheaval between November 3 and January 20. Maybe beyond.
But the fact that the goings' on in the US Post Office are front and center in US political theater is a good sign that American democracy has lots of resiliency left in it. A real fascist would have been able to stop that news from getting out.
"What to do after Mr. Trump?" You ask. Unfortunately that 20% of American who believe Mr. Trump is the best thing since Jesus Christ will still be around to cause all sorts of political drama. Mr. Biden and crew will not have an easy ride--even if there is a landslide victory.
And the same electoral system that elected Mr. Trump in 2016 could eventually elect another populist leader in 2024 and 2028. And this leader will be much smarter--and be able to pull of a real fascist coup.
It's time to change the electoral system!
Here's my solution:
I have given Medium 18 months of my time. I've found only 10 lukewarm supporters of the TDG. But they won't take this social movement any further. It's time for me to move elsewhere to promote my ideas.
Many Umair readers will be happy to say "Good Riddance" to me. For the few that sort of understand what I'm trying to do, all I can say is "It's time for you to get to work building a new democracy". Reading more Umair articles won't move the world forward.
One last article tomorrow. Then just handle the responses until the memory of me on Medium fades.
