Ha, ha, a’ ha, ha! I’ve been speculating on the possibility of Donald Trump calling off the upcoming Congressional election for several weeks now. However, I thought such would be because of a “terrorist threat” or some such nonsense, but perhaps not. Perhaps it will be because of “VOTER FRAUD”! Ah, the “post-modern” age where facts are non-existent, so that despite what passed for evidence in “modernism”, now passes for “alternate facts”. Yes, although Damnocraps are hopelessly wandering within the “New Democrats” policy desert of William and Hillary Clinton, they are the only alternative to the Republican disastrous failure. Although with a dim sense of policy, Republicans are still little better than the destitute Democrats, stumbling among the ruins wrought by the chaos of the Trump administration, and fecklessness of Congressional Republican policy confronting strong public disapproval.
Confronted with a political system devoid of the ability to govern, commensurate with a society of ever increasing class separation, I am despondent. Not metaphorically so, but literally so. Neither is there intellectual hope. Still dedicated to the STEM disciplines in desperate prayer of material salvation, when such cannot resolve the ethical, social, and cultural, no substitute for devastation comprising the contemporary American sociopolitical environment is forthcoming.
Considerate of this, I am despondent. The American population is trapped within a post-apocalyptic world with no identifiable way out. Indeed, eyes are averted from what is, supplanted by the hollow ring of repeated declarations of being “The Greatest Country”! The America of now is like a child walking through the dark repeating, “Don’t be scared, don’t be scared”. Well, I am scared, despondently so.
