War-Gaming Unlikely Outcomes Of The Election

Feel free to share your own ‘unlikely outcomes’ after you answer the question.


Let’s do a quick mental exercise of possible (however improbable) outcomes of the election. Apply the following to both sides of the political spectrum’s most passionate & vociferous factions. Both are capable of such, even if it’s unlikely.

We wake up on November 9th and Candidate wins the presidential election. Suddenly rumblings begin being heard from the opposing side of a call to more-decisive “action”. Next thing you know, attacks begin occurring around the country. The government allows the attacks to continue in an attempt to destabilize matters, further. Retaliations begin and before you know it, we’re no safer than Yazidis living in the Nineveh Province of Iraq.

Left & right are fighting each other, even as the government clamps down further on our civil liberties. The markets tank and bailouts begin. This only further-deepens the distrust and further-entrenches the self-serving political class.

People across the country who want nothing to do with the violence are begging for the new president to put an end to it. The nutjobs of the new president’s faction are screaming for the heads of those who they see as being at fault. The new president, to look presidential and prove that they are in control, clamps down in a harsh and excessively heavy-handed manner. The American people return to nervously-peaceful existence, but their rights have been further infringed and degraded by the now all-powerful tyrant-in-chief. A new precedent has been set and the doctrine of Rule By Executive Fiat is now a pillar of American governance.

My question to you is simple:

Do you have trouble envisioning either candidate as the Tyrant-In-Chief I mentioned above?
