It astounds me that people can be sold on voting Republican. These representatives claim to loathe government and then somehow everyone is surprised when they’re fucking awful at governing. What did anyone assume they were capable of?
The politics in this country are fucking unreal. Generally reviled far-right legislation is stopped from passing only by a farther-right group that somehow didn’t think that the potential damage to the American people was enough, which abruptly ends the seven-year fight to repeal Obamacare on a random Friday afternoon.
A large swath of conservatives likely feel they have nobody who represents them in government, and they’re not wrong. Both parties are in complete upheaval and it’s hilarious and incredible. Republican voters just realized nobody in charge gives a fuck about them, and the most Democrats can do is push Chelsea Clinton to carry on the neoliberal global corporate agenda.
The media will inevitably be insufferable over talking about who wins here (they do) and who loses (everybody else). If Trump deals with the left now as a slight to the right, we’ll see who on the left would make a deal with the devil.
