If you think the country is literally pursuing insane social policies and suicidal economic and financial ones, the only ray of hope in the mid-term elections is that Republicans narrowly captured the House of Representatives, which should limit further craziness. The Senate outcome, and the lack of a bigger win in the House, is solely attributable to the incredible drag Donald Trump has become on the Republican party. Mr. Egomaniac backed awful candidates who performed exactly as was predictable, although from his perspective at least they agreed that the 2020 election was stolen from him. The sooner Trump is gone from the party, the better for the country. The background conditions for a return to conservative policies remains strong, and will get stronger as the economy flounders over the next two years. The Republicans have a deep and impressive bench of candidates. If Trump can be eliminated quickly from contention in 2024, we may yet be able to rescue the country. Meantime, we need to keep the pressure on the House to do its job in stopping excessive spending and other bad policies.
