I certainly agree.

There are several perspectives. As bad as stealing a US presidential election is, as offensive as it is on a citizenship/nationalist level, our primary purpose in life is spiritual. Often people conflate the two, particularly when they say "God Bless the USA" and claim the country was established by God as some kind of beacon of spiritual light for the world in leading it out of some spiritual darkness. I call that hogwash. I don't see the world as revolving around the USA as so many Americans typically do. The USA is one country of a great many on the planet, and like any other country has its pros and cons, no more spiritually blessed than any other country.
To be clear on my personal view, on a spiritual level, I see the entire human race and planet earth as expendable, much less the fate of individual countries. That's my particular take and it's not the usual Christian view, as much of Christianity is built around the assumption that we are primarily human. I disagree with that, as I believe we are primarily souls, which defines the vast majority of what we are, with our human bodies only defining a very minor part of our identity, much as how we dress only defines a minor part of our identity when we go out into society on a daily business. It's same person whether in a suit & tie or in ripped up jeans and an oily T-shirt.
So, on that higher spiritual level, I consider all countries and governments expendable, including the USA. With that final background in place ....
I see below that, there is the political level. In spite of what I've said above, I have been very attentive to the elections and have been much more tuned in politically to what's been happening in the last 4 years since Trump was elected. I do consider it important at this lessor level, and important enough to be involved both here and as a commentator on other online platforms. The US government does play a big role in world affairs which yes, does impact life outside of the country. China is an immoral country being communist and a rising global threat and anyone outside the country should view that as a real threat. China won't stop with Taiwan. Trump at least recognized the threat of the massive trade deficit and worked to keep China in check, and losing that check to a president that is bought and paid for by the communist country -- bad news.
But it's no more bad than it was before Trump won in 2016. Until Trump, I basically didn't care about the well being of the USA because it was a lost cause. W Bush is a war criminal for invading Iraq and destroying that country. McCain would have been worse. Obama proved to be W Bush II. Well, Biden taking the presidency would return us to that "norm".
So should people like us living outside the country pay such a dear price in a futile attempt to correct a national wrong that we don't have any direct stake in? Well..... maybe. But it would be futile at best, and even counterproductive to the movement Trump has started. In fact, hostile actions would play right into the hands of the liberal left. They'd love to see nothing less than a "white supremacist" rebellion attempt. It would be their wildest dreams coming true.
One of my spiritual beliefs is in the sanctity of free will. People should be free to do what they want, so long as they suffer the consequences, both good and bad. People MUST be responsible for their own actions, and in this election, that does apply to the US population as a whole. Arguably people get the government they deserve, and if the American people as a whole rubber stamp this election, even while stolen, rejecting their best friend in Trump, then perhaps the USA arguably deserves the consequences. Now obviously, when a people have had enough and do what happened 250 years ago and throw off a tyrant and set up a new gov, good things happen. Though throwing off a foreign ruler as happened back then is much different than throwing off a domestic one. The French revolution is a case that illustrates that all to well.
But would such a grass roots effort work today? No, I don't think it will and again, today it would be a domestic crony, not a foreign one. And 250 years ago it wasn't a grass roots effort either. It was the colonial government that acted. The equivalent today would be state legislatures uniting to declare independence from Washington. That almost worked 150 years ago, but today, we don't even have that. So as a matter of practical success, no grass roots effort lacking even sanction from individual states would work today, at least not without a serious catalyst like an economic collapse.
And that pending economic collapse brings us to a strategic consideration in how to deal with this, that being that the US economy is SCREWED and not even Trump can prevent that. One of Trump's shortcomings is he doesn't understand the dire situation the economy is in. Obviously Covid and lockdowns isn't his fault as there has been universal consensus that they should have been done which we pretty much know now was a mistake. (Maybe China even released the virus, timed as it was, for the express purpose of having it harm Trump's reelection efforts, as communist philosophy permits killing people for the "greater good"), Massive stimulus spending has only worsened the situation and significantly. Whats best for the US is for Trump to be in charge when it happens because even though hes not aware of the problem, hes best able to handle if/when it does happen.
So now maybe Biden will be president. Well, if hes prez when it does happen, a benefit is that hell get the credit for the enormous crash instead of Trump.
As for the remedy about collapsing economics: Crypto currency. Now you and I discussed this before and disagree on it. At least we used to. I see crypto as a huge weapon against the establishment. You stated before your belief that, while crypto is indeed a threat to gov control, it is for that reason the establishment will outlaw it. I say they cannot do that. It is simply not possible for them to do that, though they wish they could. Crypto has the advantage of being a living currency in that software can evolve and change over time, adapting to market and legal conditions to make it thrive. Crypto is ultimately software and data on the internet, and decentralized at that. It can be disguised, if needed, on smart phones so a review by law enforcement wont find it. Im a software guy and am speaking authoritatively on this point. Right now Bitcoin is nearing its high from 3 years ago, and numerous alternative cryptos are following suit. I hope you still have some, but if not, and this goes for everyone, its not too late. Following past patterns, bitcoins next upswing should take it to between 50k & 100k. (Its at about 18.5k right now).
And crypto is not just a PITA for the establishment. Its a major weapon. You know Rothchilds quote about control of the currency. With free market crypto like bitcoin (not tokens like central banks will be issuing and which already exist that are not minable but rather centrally issued and created at will like fiat) central banks lose control, and govs that thrive on deficit spending do too. And not just a little control, but a LOT of control. Anyone who wants to be a rebel against big gov should get into crypto STAT and promote it, because without the ability to take as much goods and services from society as they want, which central bank fiat allows, govs are reduced to mortal status.
Another strategic consideration: Trump wont go away even if he does lose this time. Hes still mega rich, hes still determined, and now hes pissed. He has a huge following, a majority even, and he can make a splash. But he cannot do as you suggest and order marshal law. Or at least cant do it wisely. If he does, he will validate the lies the left has been spouting for the last 4 years about him being a dictator, and he will throw away the huge movement he started.
Rather, Trump could at minimum start a new media company bringing on conservative and patriotic values, and you know we know that if he does, it will instantly attract a huge following that will blow the ratings of the existing MSM, including Fox which appears to have been relinquished into liberal ownership, out of the water.
What else will Trump do? Not sure, but he will definitely be thinking on all manner of contingency plans. Hell be the Patriotic Right version of George Soros, though hell have more than simply money to throw into the fight, but a charismatic energy as well.
And then theres 2024. If Trump wants to run for a second term and is in any where near the same health hes in now, the R nomination is his for the asking. So Trump may well get a second term after all, in time. And an advantage to that is hell have the next 4 years to better understand the political and elitist deep state climate he is actually been dealing with, which has been somewhat lost on him to date.
So, no, even if Trump has to leave the presidency, its not the end of the USA. The Dems will lose the anti-Trump unity theyve possessed for the past 4 years and the AOC squad turns on Biden for not embracing full on communism, but instead pitching a watered down version. BLM will be disappointed in Biden and Antifa will really look bad as Biden starts catering to big corp interests. The economy may well experience a huge collapse under Bidens or Harriss watch which they will get credit for.
For my part, Ill be happy with that. I believe in personal responsibility, and the American people will reap what they sow, in this case for tolerating fraud, and the Ds for electing a guy who will sell them out. As you are not in the USA, you can be spared that, and with crypto & precious metals, even benefit from it which you should absolutely do.
So there is my take on this situation from a variety of perspectives. It is more passive for spiritual, strategic and pragmatic reasons. I understand being POd, and in fact I am POd. But I would urge taking the Sun Tzu approach (The Art of War being a good thing China actually produced in spite of their current communist tolerances). Play hands wisely and dont waste resources fighting battles that are doomed to failure. Understand your enemy's weakness and use it to your advantage, even if it requires patience.
So patience and preparation is what's best exercised right now. Preparation means: Buy crypto, and watch what Trump does next.
