One problem with “voting them out”: people in 49 states have no control over who voters in one particular state elect.

A large part of the problem could be solved by limiting presidential power by petitioning Congress to pass the legislation to this end in The Pledge to Safeguard the Constitution[https://alcris2.medium.com/following-is-a-summary-of-6be4d81a3ddc?sk=bf21c2a6b26ea78cf6761ede5d12a96c]. This requires more than voting – it necessitates that the petition gathers enough signatures, and then that citizens and activist groups keep the pressure on Congress to pass the legislation (which is a very targeted approach to curb the most urgent and vital areas of presidential power which actually have the potential to make a repeat of January 6 even worse).

Everything that happened leading up to January 6 was predicted in an October article titled The War After the Election [https://medium.com/illumination-curated/the-war-after-the-election-545de96aa4ca?sk=627c55d616d9296af3e398f1686493a4] in which I summarized the findings of the Transition Integrity Project, a group that included former Congressmen, United States Senators, previous cabinet members, White House Chiefs of Staffs, Secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security and state governors whose “war games” predicted almost exactly what is happening. I have also been updating the article to take into account events since January 6 with ideas regarding some solutions to the multiple crises we face, including limiting presidential emergency powers, Trump’s second impeachment and the problem of domestic terrorism.
