I need to think happy thoughts

After a certain point, I just need to come to terms with the fact that our nation is falling apart, and is not going to get better any time soon. It isn’t in our leaders’ best interest to have a functional nation, because if our nation works, then how can they blame the other party for how fucked up our nation is? So instead they keep the nation fucked up, preying on ignorant people’s fear and anger over how our nation is fucked up, and riding that to power.

The real tragedy in all of this is that Congress is painting itself into a corner with this gridlock; by refusing to do any work, people are increasingly going to see Congress as irrelevant, and they are going expect the President to take action, sidelining them even further. The endgame here is the American Empire. Congratulations America!
