I will be honest. I have a hard time getting into the tribal politics that have been center stage of late. Why? Because the same shit has been going on for YEARS and YEARS now. Known corruption continues to go unanswered. Our two-tiered legal system is never going to deliver any true justice. I learned that a long time ago. And our politicians continue to make fools of us on the daily by lying directly to us and watching us lap up the entertainment of their shenanigans. Both sides of the aisle are doing it, and as long as they can keep you distracted by the spectacle of it all and keep you cheering on YOUR team (and don't forget the merch), then the game will continue. The real losers in that game are US, though.

At what point are we going to stop clutching at pearls in pretend shock about the corruption (whether it has to do with election fraud or Hunter Biden's laptop--both issues that have been ongoing for YEARS now) and start seriously expecting some accountability? I fear that many, both inside and outside of our government, have become addicted to the soap opera of it all. A lot of people are profiting from that sort of entertainment and would see their cash cow dry up if the narrative switched to a more productive one of actually seeking the full truth of things. Scandal is what sells and keeps people tuned in.

If you are someone who genuinely cares more about the direction of our country than you do about making sure that your political team "wins," then you need to get honest with yourself and stop playing the game. We need to create a demand for the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth to be front and center instead.
