Elections do not fix people [View all]

Iím NOT saying we canít re-take the House.

Iím NOT saying itís impossible re-take the Senate.

Iím NOT saying that trump cannot be impeached.

What I am saying is that if we have learned nothing these last 18 or so months is that the problems we face are far more systemic and pervasive than that.

Our country is full of fucking idiots. A lot of idiots. A lot of racist and bigoted idiots.

That will not change if we win the House or impeach trump.

To be honest, im not sure it can be changed or if it will ever be better.
The US is very broke and itís not something fixed by an election(s).
At best it could take generations of social engineering to weed out the anger and ignorance and hate.

I have no good answers but I also live under no illusions that what is wrong can ever be fixed.
