Democracy is on the poll subsequent week, and it is going to lose … so says Invoice Maher, in a get-real second for a sinking establishment referred to as america authorities.
The “Actual Time” host reduce to the chase Friday night time, saying all of the handwringing in regards to the significance of voting rings hole, as a result of a slew of election deniers are going to be elected — prefer it or not — and they will set the desk for what’s to come back, which is the unraveling of democracy.
Invoice waves the white flag over democratic rule, saying Biden is not going to be a lame duck, he’ll be a “crippled duck” when he goes towards the Donald Trump/Kari Lake ticket in 2024. As for Biden’s possibilities … Invoice says zilch. Even when he wins the vote, it will not matter as a result of the secretaries of state and different authorities officers will see to it that precise votes do not actually matter.
As for making an attempt to alter folks’s minds in order that they reject Trump and different like-minded politicians, Maher says HA! He factors to the January sixth Committee, which Rep. Jamie Raskin stated would expose Trump for who he’s … properly, apparently that occurred and folks favored what they noticed, as a result of Trump’s approval ranking went up.
As Invoice stated, politicians change into dictators not with weapons however by elections … Hitler, Mussolini, Putin — they assume energy and by no means let go.
Not an important state of affairs, however Invoice appears to be saying the sunshine of democracy is dimming and can quickly be snuffed out … partly as a result of a number of us by no means bothered to be taught or really care in regards to the parts of democracy that made this the best nation on Earth.
