Phi Beta Iota: This is an American change agent. Win or lose, US politics has been flipped. The two party tyranny is dead in the water, the government is known to lie (about unemployment statistics at least) and to be corrupt and wasteful.The public has an opportunity to mobilize and reinstate public sovereignty, but this is by no means assured. We plan to cease coverage of US politics now, and observe from a distance.
If you’re keeping score, in the past month Trump has bitch-slapped the entire Republican Party, redefined our expectations of politics, focused the national discussion on immigration, proposed the only new idea for handling ISIS, and taken functional control of FOX News. And I don’t think he put much effort into it. Imagine what he could do if he gave up golf.
