Dear 100 Hour Board,

What do you make of the upcoming elections, esp given the context of the plot against the Michigan governor and Trump's refusal to commit to a transition of power? Do you think there will be civil unrest? Possibly a sort of civil war? What circumstances do you think would be required for that to happen? How destabilizing do you think this could be locally, nationally, and world wide? How do you see things resolving?

Dear CS,

I think Trump has a much bigger bark than his bite. I think once the election is over, President Trump will accept the results. The only thing that I think would interfere with that is if there was some large measure of fraud. If I was a betting man, I'd bet that Biden wins and I don't think it will be as close as some people believe it will be.

I wouldn't be shocked if there were some small, local instances of civil unrest, but nothing national. I also don't think it will even come close to "a sort of civil war."

Whatever happens, let your voice be heard. Regardless of who you want to vote for, please vote. It's especially important to vote because there are local elections and issues as well.
