Right?
I don’t want a far left America. I want there to be no longer such a thing as America. America will never be reformed. It cannot be saved. It’s inherently bad. It was founded on evil. America isn’t a house infested with termites. It’s just a mound of termites if you get what I’m saying.

this obviously didn't happen this time around

after 4 years of Trump they gave us Biden

I don't know where people are getting the idea that suddenly there's going to be a light bulb moment and the DNC establishment will just roll over

Belarus is a trial balloon for our election.

I saw the insane brainwashed fanaticism of Trump supporters harassing protestors firsthand yesterday. This is going to be a civil war. It might already be here.

I wonder if the history books will be able to express 2000's cringe? Or will they pretend this isn't stupid just like every other part of history? Is that the secret behind all of history? Goofy stupidity that gets taken seriously because people can't handle the fact that the world they live in is just kind of dumb and embarassing?

That's your checks and balances at work for you.

Definitely. The power lies in the culture and behavior of the people. Who in America happen in to be toxic morons.

Kenosha sure looked like it.

Sometimes the cringe is captured by historians. Like the original Jamestown colonists hardly included anybody with medical and agricultural skills.

And Salem gets a laugh.

The civil war in Rwanda... World War One is often correctly portrayed as a big stupid war over nothing


But there are other acts of incredible idiocy that still get good reviews like the nuclear arms race. The entire Reagan administration. The denial of the toxic nature of Islam. The American Revolution.

and today endless dedication to the constitution capitalism and democracy despite mountains and mountains of evidence that it’s the most horrendous threat to humanity ever known... it looks good on paper but the proof is in the pudding and we’re drowning in pudding

What will Trump give rise to?

How likely is it that the Dems might run AOC in 2024 if they lose this year's election? I think she'd be old enough (by the time she gets inaugurated).

I don't want to wager to guess but based on current trends such a scenario only become more likely each 4 years

Honestly I think what Trump will give rise to is more existential a threat than any specific policies he enacted or tried to enact. He showed that you can ignore common practices that most politicians cling to by virtue of simple tradition and now many potential scumbags will take note of things they could potentially always have done if they had the balls to be the first one to do it. He has lifted even further the curtain that gave an illusion of responsible representative democracy in such a way that it's like a canon blast to that curtain.
