Establishment liberals are losing their minds.
The hysteria about the imminent death of “our democracy” seems to grow with each passing day. You can turn on CNN or MSNBC at any time of the day or read the Washington Post or The Atlantic and a year later the top story is always the “January 6 insurrection.”
Here are the Top 5 reasons that the rest of the country doesn’t share this obsession:
1. Inflation and gas prices sting and have a direct impact on millions of people who normally ignore the circus in Washington. Nothing focuses the mind like growing poorer by the day.
2. When PMCs use the phrase “our democracy,” everyone understands what they mean by that is their divine right as a social class to lord it over everyone else who lives here. They are expressing anxiety about their lack of legitimacy and fear of losing power.
3. Elections are now like the chariot races that used to take place in the Byzantine Empire. They absorb the attention of the public. The policies are sold to the donors though or made by technocrats.
4. Everyone has heard about the “January 6 insurrection” a million times by now.
5. 99% of this fearmongering and handwringing is motivated by the polls which show Joe Biden and the Democrats getting blown out in the 2022 midterms.
