In 20 days, US voters will ‘decide’ between the two most hated candidates in US electoral history. Though many will also be voting for third party candidates, the establishment has made it very clear that only one of two options is possible: Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton – candidates which were chosen by only 9% of the US population. Many Americans, perhaps naively, assume that regardless of who wins the outcome will be the result of a ‘decent, stable democracy’ and that the US political system as it currently stands will continue to be the law of the land until the subsequent presidential elections are held in 2020. Despite the pleasant picture that perspective invites, the reality – as more and more Americans are becoming aware – is that the outcome of next month’s election is already decided. Just as troubling, however, is the fact that regardless of who wins – Trump or Clinton – their opponent’s supporters have promised to unleash all hell.

Trump has long maintained that the system is against him and that massive fraud will take place to ensure his loss in the upcoming election. Considering the fraud of the Democratic primary and the Clinton campaign’s disturbing collusion with mass media, there may indeed be truth to this statement. However, Trump’s openness about this possibility has caused many of his supporters to promise the launch of a full-scale rebellion or coup if Clinton wins.

Dan Bowman, a 50-year-old Trump supporter, told the Boston Globe that “We’re going to have a revolution and take them out of office if that’s what it takes. There’s going to be a lot of bloodshed. But that’s what it’s going to take. I would do whatever I can for my country.” Even Kentucky governor Matt Bevin, speaking in response to a question asking whether the nation could recover following a Clinton win, said

I do think it would be possible, but at what price? At what price? The roots of the tree of liberty are watered by what? The blood, of who? The tyrants to be sure, but who else? The patriots.

Considering that Trump supporters are incredibly well-armed and that Clinton has little support from military members and veterans, the possibility of anti-Clinton violence after election day or after a potential Clinton inauguration in January cannot be ignored.

Considering that Trump supporters are incredibly well-armed and that Clinton has little support from military members and veterans, the possibility of anti-Clinton violence after election day or after a potential Clinton inauguration in January cannot be ignored.

However, Clinton supporters have also promised violence if Trump is elected. Prominent Black Lives Matter activist Tef Poe, who testified before the UN about US police violence, said “Dear white people if Trump wins young niggas [sic] such as myself are fully hell bent on inciting riots everywhere we go. Just so you know.”


In addition, violence against Trump Republicans has already taken place. Just yesterday, Republican Party headquarters in Orange County, North Carolina was firebombed. On the adjacent building, the message “Nazi Republicans leave town or else” was written in graffiti along with a swastika. There have also been several cases of violence against Trump supporters, including one man who was shot in August by a Clinton supporter.

A Trump win could also provoke retribution from some of Clinton’s powerful friends, such as the Rothschilds. Indeed, powerful Clinton supporters have hinted that a Donald Trump win could lead to market collapse. With the global economy on edge and Deutsche Bank near collapse, it wouldn’t be very difficult to trigger another banking crisis.

US society appears to stand on an unprecedented ground. With the possibility of a global military conflict escalating, a soon-to-be massive banking crisis, and the aftermath US election promising violence regardless of the outcome, things could soon get out of hand in a way unimaginable to many Americans. Though many will confront this distinct possibility with fear, now is the time to be courageous. The two-party system as well as much of our political and financial system, in general, are no longer working for the majority of people. However, it is the two-party system, more than anything else, that seeks to “divide and conquer,” distracting us from seeing that no matter who wins the election the current, broken system will continue. Americans need to stop identifying with candidates and start identifying with each other – the power belongs to the people.

    I agree that we citizens can choose to work together, and also think that there are many ways our country can move forward after the election. The violence spoken about in this article is just one option. The reality is that many of us are already creating a new world despite the current broken system, through our cooperative business ventures, community-centered activities, and peaceful protests. We’re doing what’s called an “end-around” the system, disassociating from it entirely – while at the same time encouraging those who are still part of this broken system to join us in a more equitable one.
