What’s interesting, if you take three steps back, is that, say, three months ago, if you ask anybody who follows politics, who are the main contenders for the presidency in 2024? Well, of course they would be Joe Biden, the current president, and Donald Trump, the last president.
And those are the same two people who now are under federal investigation for mishandling documents — one of the stupidest charges in our criminal code and one of the easiest to manipulate for political ends.
So who’s the winner here? Well, the permanent bureaucracy, who has just decided who can and cannot run for president. Maybe you love Trump, maybe you hate Trump. Maybe you love Biden, maybe you hate Biden. But if you’re an American voter, you have a right to decide because it’s a democracy. You get to decide who the president is with your votes. Peter Strzok and the creeps at the FBI, the people who never leave D.C., who actually run the government, they don’t get to decide because that’s not democracy. That’s something much darker.
And yet the two main candidates are now subject to independent counsel investigations. So voters are no longer in charge. The people who actually run the government are in charge. That’s interesting.
