I don’t believe in “our democracy.”
Here’s the way “our democracy” works: we have elections and nothing ultimately changes because the policies are sold to the donor class. Politicians engage in performance art.
“Young adults say, 55% to 44%, that they’re more fearful than hopeful about the future of America — a shift from earlier this year, when most said they were hopeful. Only about one-third now describe the US as a healthy or even “somewhat functioning” democracy, with 52% saying it’s a “democracy in trouble” or that it’s failed altogether.
Young Republicans are especially pessimistic: 70% say American democracy is in trouble or failed, compared with 45% of young Democrats who say the same. …”
Oh my …
There has been a stunning decline in confidence in the “liberal norms.”
“Young Americans place the chances that they will see a second civil war in their lifetime at 35%; chances that at least one state secedes at 25%. Nearly half (46%) of young Republicans place the chances of a second civil war at 50% or higher, compared to 32% of Democrats, and 38% of independent and unaffiliated voters,” it continued.
Level of education (27% among college students and those with degrees compared to 47% for others) and whether young people live in urban (33%), suburban (33%), rural (48%) or small town (51%) environments are all significant predictors. …”
I’m the “extremist” though.
My views are conventional now in my demographic: White voters under the age of 45 in small towns and rurals areas in the South and Midwest.
Note: This is why I don’t really care about censorship anymore. They’ve censored the internet and it hasn’t made the slightest difference as more and more people are coming around to our point of view.
