I agree that what is transpiring is no more than civil insurrection but think the President should keep his efforts low key until after he wins. I am active on some forums on Reddit (I know, I know,it’s very hard left leaning) but the way the media is presenting what the Federal agents are doing (the whole “Unmarked van snatch and grab deal) is alienating fence sitters, folks that are technically conservative but lean more libertarian.

AFTER his successful election The President should absolutely crush this with Whatever level of force the terrorists bring upon themselves. These need to be put down hard and prosecuted as an example to the rest of our country lest the socialists/terrorists in other cities take heart from their example.

The idea of letting the whole left coast just secede also appeals to me. Our country would be better off without them. I wonder how Abraham Lincoln would have handled this if he was President today?

Ooh! Just had a thought..if the Coast wasn’t part of the USA that means that Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Jenny Durkan and Ted Wheeler would no longer be US Citizens. Now I’m certainly leaning this way.....:)

Oh no no no. I need to relocate first. I’ve been in California 59 years. It is hard to relocate to a different state when all of your family is here and financially crippled with the little SS gives in benefits. I pray we are taken home soon. Right now I see the whole plant risky to live in.
prayers for the whole situation and may whatever is God’s will according to his plan be accomplished.

I agree.......... it's easy for the rich to relocate but the poor would still be stuck (with no help). Its a bad situation. Do the left really and truly believe "it's all good" or is it just talking points to back their hatred? I know the ones I'm in contact with are still saying 'peaceful' but if they were to come to their door they would in no way think that. Its madness!! Lord help us is right!!

California has talked about seceding from the union for years. It’s been liberal run for decades and could have seceded if they really wanted to. I think the reason they haven’t is because the left has been planning an overthrow of our constitutional government for a while now and California is a good foothold on that plan to be accomplished, so they aren’t going anywhere. But because of the crazy liberal laws and the states constant robbery of it’s citizens income in taxation, thousands have already moved out of the state.

This really does seem Like the wisest choice of action; I get that we want to protect the federal building but it’s starting to feel like Benghazi or trying to defend the Iranian embassy..I have spoke to some More rationale (seeming) portlanders on the Ask Portland subreddit and the consensus is that the presence of the Feds (and their reinforcement) is what is making this area a prime target.

I get that, if we pack up and leave it could LOOK to an objective observer like “Protesters/Antifa won.” This would cause our President to “lose face” in some people’s eyes but why are we doggedly maintaining a presence in a place where we are so obviously unwanted?

We should let them go “full Minnesota” and wreck the place (their home) if they wish but not one PENNY of our federal dollars goes to rebuilding the infrastructure. Businesses will see this and leave (or not come there to begin with); they will punish themselves, it just won’t be plain to see for a while.

We really need to pray for Donald Trump, that the actions he takes are truly directed by the will of God and Serve his ultimate purpose .
While it seems like a good lesson for the lawless political leaders. They are committing open sedition in defiance of Federal law and the obligation to uphold the laws of the state and are therefore not legitimate legal authorities. Those cities are American cities and politicians have a sworn duty to protect their citizens and private property from the mobs.
