Elections Won’t Fix This

“Americans have limitless faith in democracy. … As a people, we believe our elections are what keep the people and not the dictators in charge. Surely some of this faith is necessary simply because it is the only option we have. The sitting president and his party are in deep trouble now, and most observers are predicting a rout in the midterm elections, granting us two additional painful years of inflation plus recession unfolding amidst what will surely be a brutal political stalemate and cultural upheaval. Then November will come again and with it another round of trust that the new president will figure something out. This faith in our elected leaders is belied by the experiences of the last 30 months.” (06/04/22)
