The mid-terms show just how stable the US political system continues to be

"In order to ensure the security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first American Empire! For a safe and secure society!"
If you have the time, do read the articles that I linked to in the above piece. I know that many of you will have questions, and some of the answers are in those essays.
I will get accused of demoralization. Consider it a splash of cold water in the face instead. I am never 'blackpilled' as the kids call it.
Thank you, this was extremely spot on!
It's all so tiresome
Astute as always.
"America no longer belongs to you, but to its elites" election day is always a win for the system, all the screeching about democracy on the ballot...and the choices generally fall to two pre-approved, banal jabronis. The illusion of choice.
Post election predictions: continued move away from free thought and morality, a coming green-tastrophy as they turn off fossil fuels with no realistic backup, continued flow of money and arms to the proxy war, rampant inflation, and maybe a netflix special or two on how the 'good guys' overcame the odds
If you spelled this out somewhere that I missed, sorry, but when exactly was the US a "nation" and what are the hallmarks of "nationhood" that are missing today?
Greetings from the Western edge of the Imperium, where Apollo's chariot always rides high and where our beloved optimate Gavinus Newsomius has just received another term as colony Governor. He earned the love of the populace by winning the war on those blood-sucking parasites known as The Feti (delenda est Feti!) and has promised us a week of bread & circuses, with the bread gluten-free of course as is our custom, and the highlight a promised spectacle of Gary Busey and Jon Voight being fed to some free-range lions.
Gavinus is also rumored to be a future Emperor based on his brilliant strategy to defeat the barbarians by luring their children to our territory then having them castrated. Even his enemies have to admit that pure noble blood flows through his veins and he also has vast holdings of prime land and vineyards, which is always a qualification for supreme leader.
Soon I will be lining up for my daily gas ration and then a prayer service at the Temple of the Transgender, our most sacred shrine.
Praise Jupiter for making me an American!
If we are to be honest, we must recognize that the majority of Republican candidates are simply stupid, and they have no mainstream institutions on their side to whitewash their lies like with the Dems.
The general feeling from Dems is corrupt degeneracy, but political competence.
General feeling from Reps is low IQ grug corruption and brain rot, some fake machismo, and zero political competence.
'The desire to see yourself at the centre of a tumultuous era, where the end of a regime takes place...It’s no different than the apocalyptic cults surrounding extremist Climate Change activists, or the various “end of the world” sects throughout human history. This is perfectly natural behaviour.
In other words, narcissism and a longing for excitement as a philosophy of history. Alternately, one could say that even an apocalypse is preferable to living through more of the same.
As usual hitting out of the park analysis.I personally believe The Empire is at its height of its power and this bunch of empire operatives are kinda of the last functioning sort who manages anything with any level of decent standard. As for the fall of empire I believe US will be destroyed from within than some outsider doing to them but here is my question - "Is that the slow speed of decline of the empire would be because of other countries(expect China and to some extent Russia) not wanting to disturb the world order as elites of other countries do not want to disturb their own status in the pecking order?"
Great article as usual.
Niccolo, you nailed it with the observation that "Americans, especially those on the populist right, need to realize that they live in the Empire’s Metropole, and that they are no longer a nation...America no longer belongs to you, but to its elites."
The further transformation of the USA now seems assured. A weakened version of the populist Right, a very Loyal Opposition led by De Santis, will likely function as a safety valve for discontent, while MAGA is pushed to the margins and then suppressed.
I believe Matt Christman had a tweet that said “dems are the normie party now” and I think he’s basically correct. The “silent majority” that would support even someone like Reagan is mostly 6 feet under. The average person was brought up on Howard zinn and has no concept of older American small r Republican virtue. It’s going to be extremely difficult to win on a right wing message given the state of the populace. Elite capture as cringe as that sounds is probably the only viable route
Some grounded thought to the wishful thinking. However, I might add that this election and future elections are all about women. This was a femcel revolution.
Married men broke Republican by 20 pts
Married women broke R by 14 pts
Unmarried men broke R by 7 pts
But *unmarried women* broke D "by whopping 37 pts"
The Democratic Party is the husband of last resort
Women make 80% of the consumer decisions. 50% of children born in the US are out of wedlock. 50% of women by 2030 will be single and childless. 50% of marriages end in divorce. 60% of college attendees are women. This is the reality and this is the future.
Think of female characteristics (collectivization, consumption, defensiveness and moral hazard / diffusion of accountability). That is American politics.
Blackpilled but dead on accurate (as usual).
If the electorate in Pennsylvania was OK with a stroke victim, does this mean that either Biden or Harris might have a chance in 2024?
