The Washington Post surveyed elected senators and representatives and found that out of 249 republicans currently serving in the Senate or House, only 25 admit that Trump lost the election! Only 25!!!
There is more: of those 249, only 30 will commit to accepting that Joe Biden won the election after the official actions of the the electoral college are finalized.

Believe me, I understand why many people living in America have little faith in what passes for democracy in America.
But these 249 elected officials have sworn to defend the Constitution of the United States!
Yet, apparently they believe that allegiance to America is only required if their party wins.

The majority of elected republicans in congress just avoided the question when asked, refusing to make a commitment.
But two went further..

Mo Brooks (of Alabama) and Paul A. Gosar (of Arizona) have stated that even after the electoral college certifies the final tallies, they will refuse to accept the outcome of the election.
Their excuse? Trump's bogus claims that he won the election "by a landslide" (bolstered by QAnon cult conspiracy bullshit).

Treason?
Convicted felons Michael Flynn and Roger Stone have called for Trump to suspend the constitution and impose martial law so that he can remain in office!
Ah, but oh wait, I guess they are no longer to be considered felons, since Trump issued pardons... (see previous post about unequal justice)
"Felons" or not, advocating a military coup d'etat in order to subvert the will of the electorate?
What could be more treasonous?

What do Trump and the White House have to say about these calls for treason? well, in response, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany referred to Flynn as “a valiant hero who served his country both on the battlefield and then in government"

Enough traitors yet? Well, hang on...
If you read the news, you know that over the last few weeks Trump has been firing officials at the Pentagon and replacing them with individuals whose loyalty is to Trump, not to America. Trump's current nominee to be become assistant secretary of defense for international security, Scott O’Grady, has tweeted his support for Flynn's call for martial law.

The forces of evil are well organized. Since 2016, we have been asking ourselves whether Trump's presidency, combined with the ascendancy of White Nationalism have ended America. We may be very close to the confirmation that the continued experiment in democracy, the slow quest to fulfill the promise of "liberty and justice for all", true equality, and a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people", may have come to the end.
