    Fact Sheets on Unlawful Militias for All 50 States Now Available from Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection

    Spread this far and wide, if you care about the future of democracy in the US.

    In short, there is no legal justification in any part of the US for some self-appointed election monitor / militia to show up armed to "keep an eye" on how polling is being conducted. Call the police, cite the relevant laws for your state, and have them removed. If the police do not apply the law, go up the chain.

    Wishing you all the best for a few weeks' time.

    I am convinced that there will be confrontations and I pray that none of them devolve into violence. I also hope that the President puts out a call for the militias (armed thugs) to "stand down and go home". I am not hopeful.

    Given that he last told them to stand by, doubtful. Hence the need for people to know precisely what laws may be violated.

    Given that there are a lot of conservatives who are already barking that the election is "rigged" to "steal" the presidency away from trump, I can imagine that a call to "armed resistence" will be seen as a "patriotic duty".

    I can remember that some people were pretty disturbed by a large, well organized group of armed black men parading at Stone Mountain.

    I imagine certain right wing conservatives would build an entire political fear mongering campaign about the invasion and destruction of the suburbs by blacks and muslims in order to get re-elected.

    Oh, wait ...

    Does anyone recall four years ago when DJT was claiming the election was rigged and was publically hinting that his supporters would take to the streets if he lost. Well, he won and now we are seeing replays of the same old smear tactics but with different names.
