    LIke Don, I was frightened by the spectacle of the Republican "rioters" at 
    the vote-counting; like Marty, I recognized "whoopsie isn't that how we, and 
    many of our actions, must have seemed to many in mid-America." But the latter 
    recognition hasn't stopped the fear, frankly, and so I think maybe it's not 
    just the actions we react to but also their goal; and a goal of interfering 
    with ballot counting is--however corrupt and basically "fixed" the 
    sociopolitical system and its "elections"--indeed scary.  There is something 
    about this year's Republican candidates--and about the more right-drifting 
    (large/huge) bloc of the media/entertainment/politics industry in the country 
    generally--that one can imagine marching into a "riots"-followed-by-military 
    etc. putsch to win election.
