Why do bad people get ahead? They didn’t. The fact that moronic, empowered criminals make it “to the top” simply means: What we assume to be “the top” no longer is.
For corrupt, goofball, social climbing sociopaths to rise to the seat once held by Jefferson, Washington and Lincoln, something had already gone horribly wrong. Be real.
America as we know it is over. That’s ok. The spirit and reality of the Constitution and the individual rights it once protected are timeless and eternal. The good guys will rise again. But not here and now, not in the existing, poisoned system. We have to withdraw from the sewer represented by these awful people and find a way to start over.
I cannot predict how and when; but we can be certain it will happen.
