Post-Midterms USA 2022-2024: The Emperor’s New Clothes

Congress is an important part of a well-oiled political system, and many of its features (like the support for America’s endless wars) are bi-partisan or uniparty. But the DC system has, for a long time, been in an existential crisis which has led America to experience a populist alternative for four years with the election of Trump in 2016. The 2022 elections will give new opportunities for a re-occupation of Washington by progressive and Trumpist politicians. But these elected representatives will not be able to afford to give in so easily to the money of the DC lobbies. They will have to put the interests of their voters before their influence buyers’ and their own. Because here too, the elections will be decided by domestic issues, and we anticipate that, as a result, the world will be watching a screeching and rattling political machine in DC[1] which will of course further weaken the western position in the world.
