Somehow, despite everything that has happened, I still find I have the capacity to be surprised by the democracy in the USA. While I rarely worry about politics in the United Kingdom, I must admit to a horrifying fascination of the events that continue to unfold in the United States. Please forgive my rambling, but since the last Presidential election and the ongoing strife that has continued, I find myself unable to look away from the ever increasing and inexorable slide into something akin to a dictatorial state at the feet of the one known as Trump. At the time, the Senate members were all for finding out what happened on Jan 6th with the events on Capitol Hill where their own lives were put in danger. However, it seems that they rather not just completely ignore the event, but everyone else to ignore it as well. Even going so far as using the filibuster to prevent an inquiry into it. The reason, or so I have heard, is that it would be bad for their chances in the next election. This is a poor excuse for understanding how these events came to be organisd and passed. Their actions indicate that while they may not be directly responsible, they may well be culpable of supporting the action indirectly. It seems that American Democracy is being sacrificed on the altar of power for the few, who are doing everything in their power to ensure they can regain and maintain control. Is there any hope for them or action that could be taken?
