Politics circa 2021. To my Republican buddies: Democrats gained Congress and the presidency. Does anybody see “a radical socialist agenda” in progress? Not. A majority of Individuals help President Joe Biden’s stimulus plan, an affordable minimal wage, immigration reform, infrastructure initiatives. That is NOT radical socialism, however the assaults on this agenda are ugly propaganda meant to frighten, polarize, and mislead. And to my Democrat buddies: The judiciary has been full of right-leaning judges. But a number of Republican judges rejected former President Trump’s election lies. They usually proceed to rule that he’s not above the regulation: he could be held accountable for misconduct.
Ditto on COVID-19. Whereas Trump mismanaged and misled, costing innumerable lives, he deserves enormous credit score for expediting vaccine growth that can clear up the issue. But if 50% of Republicans refuse to get vaccinated and too many eschew masks/distancing, 1000’s extra Individuals will needlessly die, and the financial system will proceed to flail because of politically motivated disinformation.
We’re being performed by politicians and media who profit from our mutual demonization. Democrats and Republicans: Unite in frequent trigger to punish the demagogues and media who divide us!
