My Electoral Dread

With the mid-term elections coming up in a few weeks here in the US, many of us are hoping for the "blue wave" that will help to counteract the extreme direction that the Trump regime has pulled this country. But having observed how things have been operating for the past two years, I can't help but feel a sense of dread about what will happen.

One thing that has plagued politicians is being involved in a scandal. But in the Trump era, there are new scandals every day, sometimes so many at once that it's hard to keep up. And I think that's the plan: overwhelm people so that no single scandal gets any attention.

So this dread I feel is that on Election Day, there won't be a few irregularities about the vote; there will be thousands and thousands. There will be so many that it won't be possible to investigate them all. We will have no certainty about the results. There will be cries of fraud, but instead of taking them seriously, they will be met with the standard "you lost; get over it". And as a result, the political arena will become more extreme than ever before.

I have never hoped that I am wrong as strongly as I do now.
