America is on the brink. It just feels like we’ve reached the end of a macro cycle. That this is it. No more punting severe political problems down the road. No more talk. No more finger pointing about the culture wars.
We’re about to have a war war.
I honestly can’t give you any metric as to why this is the case. But it’s as if everyone suddenly realized that this Union can’t be saved. The Far Right has completely consumed the Republican Party and now it’s just a waiting game for SCOTUS to throw the election to Trump. Or an Elector to get murdered. Or something, anything, that pushes us past the point of no return.
It could be even that even after we all think we’ve dodged a bullet, something happens out of the blue — like a war between Iran and Israel or the DPRK and ROK — that pushes us into civil war because Trump is actively and I mean ACTIVELY being seditious.
He seems to think him saying in power using any means necessary and, as such, destroying the United States is somehow in his, personal, best interest. Why that might be the case is rather curious. Sounds like he’s a useful stooge to the Russians to me.
But what do I know, I’m not Maggie Haberman.
