The Democracy We Deserve

A lot can and will change between now and 2024, but currently the frontrunners for the Democratic and Republican nominations are the same exact septuagenarians who ran last time. And one of them is about to become an octogenarian. Whatever else the United States is, it’s not a great example for the rest of the world. Either, or both of these guys, could easily die on the campaign trail.

    The progressive mindset tends toward the economic evaluation (i.e., the 99%) that would effectively unite the entire base into a potent force. The dnc, on the other hand, subdivides the left-of-center against itself with dozens of categories (i.e., the left-handed, transgendered, Geminis who requires a vegan meal on Thursdays demographic being allowed to demand complete control of all narratives and anyone who in unmutual toward them is branded a racist or something similar to cancel them) so that nothing can get accomplished.
    Criticism of Biden’s age seems of a similar bent. Sure, he’s old. But that’s not the problem. The problem isn’t that he’s old, the problem is that he’s useless. Look at this bill going through the system right now. The MSM keeps acting like it’s a miracle. Even Vox is able to see it for what it is. Ten whole drugs will be price-reduced. In 2026. Wow! That’s progress. And lots and lots of young people are thrilled about it. Some of them are senators, but a lot of them are voters who are too clueless to see what’s going on.
