A lesson about the history of American politics will help you understand the tall figures that stood for equal rights and how they managed to shape a brighter democracy. But if that lesson has anything to do with the current scenario, then things will go downhill. The modern age of politics is on a rollercoaster ride to insanity as everyday events and occurrences manage to paint a picture that people prefer to ignore. So what exactly is this problem, and how did it begin? Well, let’s go ahead and find out.
1. The Field of Chaos
The current scene is filled with chaos as voters are angry at almost every single decision put forward by the current government. To top it all, the Congress and the White House are not the perfect duos as the air is filled with nothing but disagreements. With all this in mind, the source of this chaos seems to pinpoint towards a lot of directions as everyone is confused about the next move. In this climate of uncertainty, the future of politics does not stand to be stable, and things might even go from bad to worse.
Few of the leading examples of this method of uncertainty or inability can be found at Capitol Hill. At this place, Speaker Paul Ryan resigned after being unable to pass a budget. Moreover, the house also burned through two more speakers and an ‘acting’ speaker, only to be led into a reality without speakers. On the other hand, the Senate is also busy as wannabe presidents and various other individuals utilise the chamber as a platform for their own purpose.
Amidst all this chaos, the outcome that everyone received was unbearable as the United States briefly defaulted on the national debt, thereby precipitating a market collapse and an economic downturn. Hence, everyone wants to escape from reality.
2. The Beginning
If one has to look into the beginning of this chaos, then it might take you to the 45the President of the United States. Yes, that’s right. Donald J Trump began his elections by being a Republican candidate, but in all sense, he was not a Republican. Based on data from registration records, since the year 1987, Mr Trump has been a Republican, an independent, a Democrat, then again a Republican. While during these years, he also spoke about not enrolling in a party, he eventually came out as a Republican.
With Presidential primaries unfolding, we have a fractured field for Democrats as Kanye West takes charge. Due to that, the political future seems to be unreal. Political disintegration, visible signs of anachronism and much more plague American politics by turning it into something the world wasn’t prepared to face.
