Take A Walk On the Wild Side

The United States Supreme Court, in a recent decision, ruled that the convicted felon and two-time impeached former President Donald Trump has full immunity from prosecution for actions that were within his constitutional powers as president. The six justices who supported this decision have now opened the door for a tyrannical president with absolute power. With that in mind, let's take a walk on the wild side. It is January 20, 2025, and Donald Trump has just been sworn in as the 47th President of the United States. His first order is to place the entire country under the emergency powers of the president, which will provide Trump with rights not mentioned in the United States Constitution and not challenged by the Congress he controls or the Supreme Court, which he apparently also controls. Some of those powers will allow him to ban all civil liberties, such as the right to a peaceful protest. Women’s groups who normally would organize against the overturning of Roe V. Wade would be arrested and thrown in jail. Black Lives Matter demonstrators would face the same consequences. Specifically, opponents such as Liz Cheney would be incarcerated, and the entire Democratic Party would be considered a subversive organization, and its members would also be incarcerated. Trump would cancel any future elections, which would make him a permanent president or, if you prefer, a dictator.  On Trump's second day in office, he would take control of the internet, radio, television, and all communications.

The United States Supreme Court, in a recent decision, ruled that the convicted felon and two-time impeached former President Donald Trump has full immunity from prosecution for actions that were within his constitutional powers as president. The six justices who supported this decision have now opened the door for a tyrannical president with absolute power. With that in mind, let’s take a walk on the wild side.

It is January 20, 2025, and Donald Trump has just been sworn in as the 47th President of the United States. His first order is to place the entire country under the emergency powers of the president, which will provide Trump with rights not mentioned in the United States Constitution and not challenged by the Congress he controls or the Supreme Court, which he apparently also controls. Some of those powers will allow him to ban all civil liberties, such as the right to a peaceful protest. Women’s groups who normally would organize against the overturning of Roe V. Wade would be arrested and thrown in jail. Black Lives Matter demonstrators would face the same consequences. Specifically, opponents such as Liz Cheney would be incarcerated, and the entire Democratic Party would be considered a subversive organization, and its members would also be incarcerated. Trump would cancel any future elections, which would make him a permanent president or, if you prefer, a dictator. 

On Trump’s second day in office, he would take control of the internet, radio, television, and all communications. Our newspaper, Black Life Texas, would be shut down, and if anyone affiliated with the paper were to protest, they would be incarcerated. He would also take control of all transportation, from city buses to national and international air flights. On his third day in office, he would target his opponents for assassination. Under the official powers of the president, he could kill anyone whom he considered a threat to the security of the country, as defined by Trump. 

That walk obviously is not an enjoyable one and something that we would prefer not to have to take. How can we, as the American voters, prevent that from happening? We must be protective of our vote this November 5. We know the danger that a Trump presidency imposes on our freedoms and our democracy. That danger is only increased if somehow he has a Republican Congress beholden to his powers. Therefore, not only must we be very discerning about whom we select to be our next president, but we must also apply the same cautious examination to the candidates on the down-ballot, that is, the Senate and the House of Representatives.

If we want to avoid the loss of our freedoms, it is imperative to be aware of what confronts us as we walk on the wild side. To prevent these threats to our future, we must take control with our vote.
