Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"History may record that the 2020 election represented the last hurrah for a reactionary conservative movement  which first came to power with Reagan in 1980."

The reactionary conservative movement of Reagan has morphed over the last 40 years into something much worse.  Not to scare anyone but about half the USAmerican electorate voted for Trmp after the preventable deaths of close to a quarter million people and an administration remarkable (and often remarked upon) for its performative cruelty and tactical incompetence.  Hitler never got 40% of the votes in any election.

Trmp squeaked into office while being known as a conman, a misogynistic whoremonger (no offense to Stormy Daniels and his other paramours, I use the word to describe Trmp's own behavior to the women he fcked and fcked over), and a mobbed up money launderer.  After four years of his chaotic stupidity, he got MORE votes than in 2016, it seems.

The USA is a divided country and nearly half of us want to eliminate, with extreme prejudice, the other half.  And our media is happy to fan the flames.

Can convicted felons run for president? Just checking.

I think it is a requirement. As my brother said to the immigration official as he landed in Australia - "Do you have a criminal conviction sir?"  "No - I didn't realise you still needed one!"
