This is a typical midterm election where many people are upset with how the country is going, and want to “throw the bums out.” Next January, Republicans will make some needed changes, but nowhere enough of them, to right the ballast of the sinking ship USA.
After their recent holiday in Kiyv, SecDef Lloyd Austin and SecState Anthony Blinken actually told us the real reason for the war.
