N'kay Tink, I saw something just maybe Friday, helped me organize my thinking there...the (seemingly) significant differences in the ideologies of the two parties...so, huge relief to Republican, working-class base that Trump has nominated someone with good sense for SCOTUS.
I am not even interested enough to remember her name -- wasn't it Amy something? Anyway, she is safely for Right To Life, get rid of Roe v. Wade...she will respect the sanctity of the family, none of this LGBTQ nonsense...support for small businesses...on and on...values that REALLY matter, and obviously there is a REAL difference!
But these apparent *differences* are nothing but red herring -- because what they are all doing now, red and blue, hidden behind the smokescreen of this diverse ideology, all of them are shoveling the power and wealth into the totalitarian control of a very few. And then all these differences just won't matter, regime so totalitarian as to do whatever it wants.

I saw one just yesterday; a celebration that Trump has come out in favor of optional COVID vaccination, Biden tending toward mandatory. "THIS MATTERS, it is one of MANY real diametric differences!"
Nope it's a red herring, keep us occupied at each others' throats...while behind the scenes, power is quietly transferred out of our hands by all of them red and blue. Then there can be no debate.
***Incidentally, the vaccination question is something I am re-thinking...as a former health care worker I had no doubts...now I am not so sure. I do know for certain I favor optional COVID vaccination.
