POLITICS OF THE UNITED STATES | 2020 ELECTION | A DIVIDED AMERICA

Not “the people,” but barely more than one-third of the voting people elected Biden.

It is the Trump presidency that is coming to an end, not our “long national nightmare.”

The GOP leadership orchestrated this 70-year-convergence. That is America’s long national nightmare.

The nightmare is not over, only the night terrors.
