Although anyone voting for her has got to be thick as a couple planks. I despair at the US' chances. It always seems to be more dire than we (outside the US) could possibly imagine. And that's saying something.
@lightweight I've believed the US systems were broken a long time.
I believe Covid (and moreso the governments lack of response) has broken the spirit of the people to believe they are a nation.
Expect more extreme facades of nationalism as they try to pretend/force a sense of nation, but that will just lead to the opposite.
@LovesTha yup, agreed. This also seems to agree: https://www.salon.com/2022/07/29/the-backlash-to-christianity-are-now-panicked--but-they-only-have-themselves-to/
@LovesTha what seems so staggering to me is that these representatives are so transparently ignorant - they revel in being uneducated and oblivious to the world around them, wearing it like a badge of honour. And still, for reasons I can't begin to fathom, people vote for them. That choice, of course, reflects extremely poorly on them.
