The 4th Solution

I think there are very few people who haven’t come to understand what Trump is and what he is doing. It has been a while since I’ve seen anyone, other than his stooges or Congressional stunningly stupid people, say anything about a pivot. He needs to be removed. Anyone working for or directly connected to Trump needs to be removed. How do we do that?

We need to install a special non-partisan executive committee (previous presidents?)with three mandates: 1) Establish and implement a national AI algorithm for “one person, one vote” based on the last census data, 2) Establish a national, required, qualification test based on current scientific principles for anyone running for public office in this country, and 3) Run a complete, corrected federal and all states election in 2020. I would also suggest declaring existing political parties terminated and to be liquidated with all elections publicly funded and no private money allowed. But that might be too extreme for some people.

The result of this might be a nation that could survive the 21st century. Wait, absurd you say? Impossible? The constitution doesn’t allow it? Ok, then, the bare minimum: 1) Remove Trump under the 25th amendment as there are enough mental health professionals on record already with a preliminary diagnosis of dangerous problems, 2) Then remove Pence also under the 25th amendment as he has publicly made delusional statements. (Ask him the age of the planet.) 3) Keep going until you find someone who is not bug fuck crazy.

That’s a pretty desperate hope but we don’t have many options left.
