America is fucked. Completely. There isn't a path forward that doesn't include some sort of suspension of the basic freedoms and systems we have in place today.
From COVID mitigation to eliminating the Electoral College to repairing the Supreme Court to crushing the White Supremacy movement, the only way these things can be addressed is to change the game and start playing Calvinball with American's rights.
And that ain't going to go over well with a portion of the populace who is deeply invested in keeping America divided and broken, as they climb over the bodies of their fellow Americans to grub for change in the couch cushions.
Even if the Democrats sweep the Presidency, House, and Senate, the Supreme Court is still completely fucked, and Brett Kavanaugh just gave them the supreme right over all States; a line that the Supreme Court had always been careful to avoid in the past, to preserve the basic tenet of States Rights.
And even if the Democrats sweep the Presidency, House, and Senate, Trump has appointed hundreds of partisan judges in key districts in key States across the USA, to ensure any effort at reform is stopped at the lower courts, even before it gets to the Conservative Supreme Court.
And even if the Democrats sweep the Presidency, House, and Senate, Trump has appointed hundreds of industry hacks and cronies to manage the key institutions that Americans rely on to protect our lives. Remember Ajit Pai? The head of the EPA is an oil tycoon? Scientists have left key posts in droves, unable to operate under a science-hating President and his golf caddy he appointed head of the institution? Remember the head of NASA is a climate change denier, LTBGQ hater, and anti-scientific 2-term House Representative from Oklahoma who bankrupted the only business he ever ran?
Simply undoing the damage Trump has done will take a single term, and won't show any significant progress on the quality of life issues that Americans actually care about.
IF Biden even survives his first term.
My only hope is that Biden passes quickly, Harris takes over, and uses her iron fist to force America back into the 21st century. Maybe she'll bring on Katie Porter as her VP.
I'm in a bad place. Can ya tell?
