If I were you, regardless of affiliation, I would get ready for a final confrontation. I am not sure I would say Hot CW2 across the nation but DC might light up:

“Bipartisan” Washington Insiders Reveal Their Plan for Chaos if Trump Wins the Election” ... -election/

“A group of Democratic Party insiders and former Obama and Clinton era officials as well as a cadre of “Never Trump” neoconservative Republicans have spent the past few months conducting simulations and “war games” regarding different 2020 election “doomsday” scenarios. Per several media reports on the group, called the Transition Integrity Project (TIP), they justify these exercises as specifically preparing for a scenario where President Trump loses the 2020 election and refuses to leave office, potentially resulting in a constitutional crisis. However, according to TIP’s own documents, even their simulations involving a “clear win” for Trump in the upcoming election resulted in a constitutional crisis, as they predicted that the Biden campaign would make bold moves aimed at securing the presidency, regardless of the election result. This is particularly troubling given that TIP has considerable ties to the Obama administration, where Biden served as Vice President, as well as several groups that are adamantly pro-Biden in addition to the Biden campaign itself. Indeed, the fact that a group of openly pro-Biden Washington insiders and former government officials have gamed out scenarios for possible election outcomes and their aftermath, all of which either ended with Biden becoming president or a constitutional crisis, suggest that powerful forces influencing the Biden campaign are pushing the former Vice President to refuse to concede the election even if he loses. This, of course, gravely undercuts the TIP’s claim to be ensuring “integrity” in the presidential transition process and instead suggests that the group is openly planning on how to ensure that Trump leaves office regardless of the result or to manufacture the very constitutional crisis they claim to be preventing through their simulations.”

the concept of government debt would be shaken if there is doubt on who is the government
but the world is used to the US permanent crisis ,
as a rough estimate a six months kerfuffle about number won't matter
some interesting situation could occur such as the death of Justice Ginsburg ....before the election , or worst , just after ... e/12469234

"With global recession looming, Russia looks strong" ... ks-strong/

"Now, whether this system will come crashing down or just slowly die as it trundles downhill will not matter all that much. It will eventually die either way. Most people would prefer the slow motion option, but only with the crash would a cure come. Whatever, it has become increasingly difficult to stave off the crash and this time around, the financial markets would take the real economy down with them big time."

This is from August 2019, but still an interesting article on Russia's economy and the global economy, too. Long story short, the Russian economy is in pretty good shape with very little debt of any type, a large sovereign fund, and good forex reserves. Russia is also the biggest country on Earth and has very large reserves of resources.

The Russians also enjoy the incredible advantage of not suffering population growth. The World Bank's Russian population change rate for 2018 was 0.0%.
