Mr. Pool notes, without remarking on the irony, that President Trump sided with Speaker Pelosi against his own party. Thus ultimately dividing it and costing it the Georgia Senate seats and with it the majority in the Senate. Please note, this is the mirror image of what Mr. Pool laments - Trump sided with the Democrats.It also being notable that Mr. Trump is not a conservative but - like the alleged but not really socialist Senator Bernie Sanders - is a populist. Populism not being a coherent ideology but rather a disposition characterized by dislike of elites, distrust of complexity and established institutions and a cultural attitude of resentment and envy. Mr. Biden is also appealing to this populist wave - it is not the first time the nation has seen one - and in tailoring the COVID relief bill to the lower and middle classes he and his party are playing to that aforementioned resentment and envy. This time, the Democrats are saying, we are not making the rich richer, and in the bargain they appeal to moderates who worry about the cost of the bill.Oh, and as to the notion that the government closed down the economy and did not compensate those from whom it took jobs, the spiraling national debt - very much including the latest COVID relief bill, begs to differ. The debt being the numerical expression of the American public's dislike for government - except when it doesn't.Bottom line, Mr. Pool's analysis is superficial and appeals more to heart than head. It is simply more populist resentment, but taken in a different direction. However, as a simple mathematical calculus, it is accurate.
I can't add much, with you 100% here.It's so vile.
True. We gotta get out of this mess. And the way to do it is for more and more people to figure out what's doing on so we can all unite in resistance.
