My official political stance is monitoring the situation.
I’ve always been a populist, nationalist, moderate, right-leaning Independent voter. I’m definitely not a Democrat, but I don’t identify with the Republican Party either.
My problem with the Republican Party is that it is just too deferential to wealthy donors and business interests and leans far too heavily for my tastes towards the cultural and economic preferences of the True Cons wing of the party. This was still true throughout the Trump presidency. We got tax cuts, deregulation, libertarian judges, huge military budgets, MIGA and criminal justice reform out of it. The final insult was the $600 stimulus check which completed the Republican loss of power in Washington.
The comment section feels the same way.
Everyone seems to recognize the futility of backlash politics. Neoliberal Joe is governing about as we expected, but the Republicans don’t seem that interested in offering an alternative. They lost control of the White House and Congress by conserving their antiquated policy agenda and catering to the interests of the donor class instead of their own voters.
