Doubling Down Intentions of Troubling Consequences

in response to reader comment: Hard to Take That This is Not a Joke

The other day, we read that the democratic socialist presidential hopeful has finally identified the choice of running mate. There appears to be elation for those sectors of American society that further appear to be content that as parts of America are burning with the passion of out-of-control actors whose intentions are to overturn the conventions of a two hundred plus years old republic; and one wonders: who really knows what will be lost if they get their desires granted to them? The only promise to return to a society that is not so engrossed with burning down institutional America comes from the democratic socialist presidential hopeful's opponent, the incumbent American Chief Administrative protector of the rule of law.
Now that a running mate is known, what is that person known for; that having credentials of law enforcement, is this where the desires of the out-of-control actors are granted and are they going to concede their actions of insurrection are fulfilled? More than likely, in that frame of reference, one might expect pardons of the criminal activities, including murders and other mayhem: is this what we should expect? Where is the promise of returning to normalized environment of a civilized society? This does not appear to be the case. But then, are we really going to go back to normal in spite of who does win?
