Forty-Five: A Republic, if you can keep it (2016)

I don't like commenting on current politics, I don't think I'm good at it, things move far too quickly for my preference of considered commentary, the topic itself (and the inevitable discussions) tends to annoy me, and there's far too much superior competition.

Still, with many others I'm absorbing in a state of shock the news of Donald John Trump, 45th president-elect of the United States of America. And am wondering, how did we get here? ...

A piece from four years ago. I had my doubts when I hit "publish", though it seems to have weathered well. And be worth revisiting.

Here's to a 46 in 2021.

@dredmorbius solid read. will you offer a new autopsy after November 3rd? 🤔
