Goodbye democracy. Hello idiocracy.
Chaos is the new normal, at least, for the current “administration.”
With approval ratings at 39% according to the latest Pew Research Center poll, 35 is currently nearing one of the lowest approval ratings in history. (George W. Bush’s 2nd term average was a tiny 37%, but his two term average was nearer to 60% [Gallup ratings].)
Remember: the American government was set up to work for the people, not the other way around.
Keep researching, learning, and building your armory.
Intelligence is their downfall. A well-read, knowledgeable public is the nightmare of the current administration. They’ve built their image on lies and fear. They thrive in chaos.
