I keep being told (by the ones who don’t just dismiss the obviously stolen 2020 election out of hand) that all the ills we suffered during the last election are going to be fixed before the next one, so Republicans have a good chance of taking back congressional majorities after the elections in 2022.
The “Establishment” Republicans, who are basically nothing more than the flip side of the same coin as the big government Democrats, were so desperate to get Trump out of office that they were willing to allow the voting process itself to be compromised. Now that the Genie’s out of the bottle, they’re not getting it back in. The precedent has been set. We’ve basically demonstrated to the democrats that they can change the rules whenever they want and steal an election with no consequences. They can do it brazenly and even on video and nothing will be done to correct it, not by the legislatures and not by the courts.
Basically, the court has ruled that you can’t contest election procedures before the election because you’re not a victim yet so you don’t have standing…but you can’t contest them after the election because you’ve already lost, for which there is no remedy, so the case is moot. Classic Catch-22.
As far as the Supreme Court is concerned, there are no election laws. They are unenforceable and so are meaningless.
I hope I’m wrong, but I believe that all the people on the right who are predicting the ’22 midterm election is going to change everything are going to be sorely disappointed.
Pretty much every state with any city in which the democrats control the election apparatus is going to have two Democrat senators. Just as in the 2020 election, that city will just crank out as many votes as they need to make the election go their way.
That’s pretty much every state with a couple of exceptions. So, after 2022, I expect the Dems to have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.
More difficult is congressional representation, but the tenet holds. Any district with a city who’s election apparatus is run by democrats is going to have a democrat congressman. The democrats won’t have an overpowering majority like they will in the Senate, but they will have a majority.
Until something drastic and dramatic changes, there will be a democrat president and democrat majorities in the house and senate for the foreseeable future.
Which means government control over most aspect of our lives, toxic business climate, high taxes for the producers to pay for the bread and circuses for the masses, profligate spending on pet projects that pad the wallets of congresscritters and their associates/cronies/accomplices, eventually rampant inflation and economic collapse. With our already overwhelming debt and endlessly expanding deficit, the crash is only a matter of time.
I’ve been watching and talking about this slow motion train wreck for about 20 years now, and it’s just rolling right along. When the end comes, it’s going to be ugly. The most positive thing I can say about it is I hope I’m not around any more when the wreckage finally comes to rest.
I suppose it’s pointless to rail about it…even at least one of the founding fathers recognized the inevitability of this time.
“…I agree to this Constitution with all its faults, if they are such; because I think a general Government necessary for us, and there is no form of Government but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered, and believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in Despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other. I doubt, too, whether any other Convention we can obtain may be able to make a better Constitution.”
Or, in more succinct terms: A people always gets the government it deserves.
