I know, I know, 'no politics'. But look at it another way: Enquiring minds want to know. Do I scream at my nephew to leave SF and come back to these shores? He maintains that, oh, California is not that bad. Yet?, I wonder.
We are used to hear this from 3rd world countries, be it Africa, be it South East Asia: there's an election, and the moment the result is announced,
the loser starts screaming fraud, it was rigged, they voted the graveyard and what not. Nobody in those countries accepts the result of an election,
it seems they have no real clue what democracy is, and what voting is all about. The election is only valid, if THEY win it. They think.
All right, they have no history of it, they don't *really* understand it, it's sad and terrible at the same time, but hey ...
For a couple of months now, the 1st world countries have been watching how the orange narcissistic psychopath is trying to overturn
democracy in the US. There is no other word for it: he's not just calling the election into question, he's trying to pervert the whole system.
Resorting to blackmail, considering a military coup. And one of your two political parties goes right along with him.
Don't they, realistically, give a shit about democracy, or are they that power hungry that no constitution, no law, matters to them any more.
Have they no shame?
If they had ANY decency, they'd quietly send an ambulance to the White House, and the friendly men in the white coats would take him away where he can't do any more mischief. But they back him all the way, even though their position is plainly visible to be pointless, and, let's face it, illegal. Not least, they're actually cutting down the tree they're sitting in.
We are sitting here, across which ever body of water, gobsmacked, looking on and seriously don't understand what's going on. Is the US now the equivalent of a 3rd world country?
Personally I have nothing but contempt for the people who support that kind of carry-on. Just W.T.F.
