Election Craziness


Like a lot of people I’m watching closely the midterm election results from yesterday. Crazy!


I try not to talk about politics too much because, first of all, I’m just exhausted from it.


But I also have a lot of conservative friends and followers, and don’t want them to feel unwelcome or criticized.


At the same time, I’ve been open that I’m a liberal Democrat, so people should not feel surprised when I take liberal Democratic positions.


This year is different because the attack on democracy is so insane and dangerous that I’m glad to see the electorate buck the trend of largely voting for the party out-of-power.

If this is a wake-up call for Republicans to uphold classic American positions of respecting elections, I’m all for it. This used to be something that everybody agreed was sacrosanct.


Dangerous times!

Yet, most important: America is *not* a democracy. Nor is She, essentially, a representative democracy/republic. In fact, She is a very specific type of republic: one dedicated to the principle of man's rights. Quite simply, no percentage of the vote is supposed to be enough to sanction "Peter" to rob and/or trespass against "Paul" (provided that Paul hasn't…

Reality check:


Hillary never accepted the results of the 2016 elections;


Al Gore said Dubya was a "selected" President;


Stacey Abrams never conceded in 2018...;


etc, etc, etc.


There is a name for people like them: ELECTION DENIERS.


Your democracy isn't in danger, it went to pass on years ago, especially after the "fortified" results of 2020.


From an objective viewpoint, the US appears to be moving closer and closer to being a failed state. I suggest that you give foreign news sources a try and you'll soon notice that almost everyone knows this, that is everyone except US citizens themselves. Sad.
