Moving right along..
Didn't comment on the election yet. Was hoping the Red Wave thing would happen, even knowing it might be blunted by the leftist machine. Didn't reckon on how much though. My friend Enak assesses it fairly accurately, as always. Actually it's just common sense. I won't go into the details, just make an observation or two.
One is, it's likely to get worse. With nothing (it's likely not even the House will fall to Republicans) to stop them, or even make them mildly trepid. Thinking (the masses anyway, who do the mule work) as their masters have conditioned them, they see victory in the near future. The wise see very bad things, and being wise do not yet know what those bad things will be.
Many of even the most informed of us on "the right" as we are called, are unaware of the developments in the remainder of the world. Their world is this country, and it is relatively insignificant in any case, and becomes more so as its alliance (USA and most of western Europe, with Asian allies such as Korea and Japan both of little use in a fight (economic or military), and likely to abandon that alliance if survival seems to be at risk) is being weakened by the destruction of leftist policies and continued foreign meddling depletes their resources.
So the need to do what needs to be done, assuming it can be done, they do now know. Since in the near future the USA is likely to be just one of numerous states which are either connected in varying degrees to the new pole ( BRICS+) or the finally dying empire that never ended, which whether it results in them being attached to a new pole or something else. What that something else may not be our choice, but it could be.
If the USA is somehow, in a relatively short time, transformed from its current state (approaching a destruction from which rebuilding may not be possible) to something close to the founders' plan, it could survive and thrive in the possible chaos of the non-aligned world. That is probably not feasible now, as the socio-political situation is such that there is no way to prevent the descent into authoritarianism (we're close now) and the inevitable totalitarian (think Stalinist Russia) regime. The situation depicted in the forthcoming "Balance of Power" may be the best we can manage at first, which I say because it offers a possible path to restoration of the Republic, even after it has been severely broken.
