Yes, there’s clear reason to expect a more thoughtful and enlightened “handling” of the pandemic, including the rollout and distribution of the Covid vaccines, with Biden at the helm. The fact that the voters moved Trump to “lame duck” status has allowed the nation a huge sigh of relief, though we’re not surprised that he’ll fight the mandate of the people to the bitter end. The nation’s mental health has improved perceivably, just knowing that he and the despicable individuals he chooses to surround himself with will no longer be driving the bus.
The obvious and meaningful differences between a Trump presidency and that of a Joe Biden have been sufficient to justify a “hold your nose” vote for Biden, but there’s no reason to expect what we might call progressive national policy from Biden and his brand of cronies. The same constant monitoring and resistance that was necessary with Trump will be necessary with Biden and his administration; indeed, we need to be even more focused on a Biden administration and the unDemocratic Party because they’re much more subtle and deceiving in their treachery. And the msm will not be scrutinizing a Biden administration like they’ve done with Trump.
The Biden administration and the unDemocratic Party will be held accountable if the progressives of our citizenry are vigilant and genuinely committed to making progressive policy a reality. Sadly, that’s not likely to happen. Even when they’ve had opportunities to reject the treachery of the unDems and start their own party, they’ve stayed with the unDems because, with exceptions, that’s essentially what they are, committed to the Party. Sanders, AOC and the rest of the squad, Khanna and the others of the so called progressive caucus, sheepdogs all. And voters choosing to call themselves progressives have been and likely will continue to stay with the unDemocratic Party. Inertia, fear, it doesn’t matter why. It’s reality.
There’s a new political party developing right now, the People’s Party, that’s genuinely committed to those ideals and policies so many so called progressives profess to so badly want. If those calling themselves progressives moved to support the People’s Party, it would become influential in very little time. But when it comes to commitment that might actually make it happen, they quite predictably resort to the same old submission to the unDems that makes them such a reliable voting block. Such a deal for a political party, unwavering loyalty from a voting block in return for nothing but scorn.
So, what are you going to do this time around, progressives?
