It definitely seems as though the modern Administrative State that wealthy MAGA people hate so much is soon enough going to be replaced with a Moralistic State. As such, all taxes will be boiled down to a 30% VAT. Abortion and porn will be totally, completely illegal in the extreme. No fault divorce will be abolished.
And it’s all probably going to happen the moment Republicans have the power to do so. The shift from Administrative State to Moralistic State will happen so quickly and be so jarring that that, unto itself, could cause something akin to a National Divorce and or revolution.
The drive for a Moralistic State is so absolute within even the “normal” conservative base that, woah, buddy, are we fucked. And, yet, I can’t predict the future. Maybe some how, some way, we manage to muddle our way through what I fear might otherwise be some sort of massive fucking clusterfuck.
Who knows at this point. We still have just about a year before we reach put up or shut up times.
