I should write this in multiple pieces, as the party’s timely end wasn’t caused by one single factor. Rather, it was a consequence of the deeds of a newfangled leader. We all know who I’m talking about. Without him, the Republicans would be in a much greater position in the two-party system of the United States.
With the party severely underperforming in the latest midterms, its members certainly didn’t expect such an accelerated journey to the establishment’s death. But the midterms were only the start of a series of failures, with it now culminating in several finales. From Trump sitting in court to McCarthy being forced to strike a deal with Democrats and thus being ousted as Speaker, the Republican Party did not have one single win since they curtailed human rights by removing abortion as a guaranteed right in the country. Wasting their time, Republican politicians are busy with careless and useless infighting while one of the most unpopular Democrats still holds the highest office in the land. Disregarding their supposed jobs for a second, even politically speaking, they are doing quite insufficiently if they want to send a President to the White House ever again.
But let’s get back to the topic of their jobs. Their value. Politicians’ value in elected office shouldn’t be running up and down the chamber and proclaiming a crisis every month and expecting their voters to sympathize with them, while almost eighty percent of Americans are anxious because of their financial situation.
The main occupation of the Senate and the House of Representatives should not be letting the government work as intended, but working on more efficient ways the government can help and support the lives of the citizens. That is the job of the government.
In the United States, it is almost unimaginable for the government to operate in an efficient manner. The American mind cannot comprehend the government working in a way that doesn’t cause them to think how useless their political leaders are. It shouldn’t be this way.
Of course, this political theater is small-government conservatives’ wet dreams materialized. Nevertheless, this doesn’t apply to Republicans only. Democrats, while operating in a government trifecta, loved claiming they “don’t have the votes” for tangible progress for the country.
Instead of creating a system that supports every worker, that doesn’t require anyone to work multiple jobs out of necessity, that provides education for everyone, the American people must rely on a government that doesn’t give one single… Anyways.
The good news, though, Kevin McCarthy is ousted as House Speaker. He did everything right and they are ousting him. So sad. Crying emoji.
Kevin McCarthy is being ousted and he’ll leave as nobody’s hero. Democrats hate him for obvious reasons (he’s not a good person), and his fellow Republicans, the even-more-right-wingers-than-him despise him because he didn’t want to shut down the government. What a feat.
My only grievance regarding the Republican Party’s end is how it might affect Democrats. Until now, the given argument for voting for Democrats was the alternative. This way, it was very hard to influence them, to convince Democratic politicians to steer the country in the direction of progress. What will happen if they know there is no alternative? Will they even care?
We shall see.
