Election Day

While I doubt that there will be notable forward progress in the next 4 years, I'm definitely looking forward to politics reverting back to traditional, predictable form. Biden as President will be familiar, unsurprising, and likely hamstrung by lack of Senate control. In my opinion, that's exactly what we need to decelerate our parallel freefalls in global prestige, economy, critical thinking, and public health.

Sure, there's a case to be made for changing things quickly, but "move fast and break things" doesn't work when our country's government is intentionally designed to enforce methodical, stately progress. Let's clean up the mess a little bit before we scare the other half of the country with ideas they've been inculcated to fear.

So, give me four years of people feeling like Biden isn't moving fast enough, an emphasis on arresting the entropy, and the occasional idyllic scandal about a House rep who uses campaign funds to decorate his office like Downton Abbey. Let's dampen the effects of disinformation, subdue the either/or tribalism, and get the other 100 million eligible voters involved.

If we're all still alive in 2024, THEN we can talk about what's next.
