Nothing is settled.
American Democracy remains in flux because that's how it was designed. Meanwhile, the people who really run things haven't been concerned about losing power since their last real problem was solved on November 22, 1963.
And no . . .
In fact, if it ever did happen, that might be even more worrisome than forever war to keep the supply of McNuggets running smoothly.
Don't label TKC a pessimist, just a realist and a firm believer that the USA remains the greatest nation in all of the world for many reasons but mostly because the citizenry habitually suspend disbelief and actively pretend that voters have even a modicum of power.
Sure, a former game show host and some other elderly white dude are actively fighting for control of American Democracy . . . Because that's what the mainstream media says and all of it makes an engaging distraction which prevents questions about the ruling class whilst inflation is the ONLY election outcome Americans can count on . . .
But I digress . . .
And so, we share this election part deux news instead . . .
