I Just Don't Care - Vox Popoli

To no one’s surprise, Donald Trump is running for president again:

Donald Trump has revealed he is running for president for the third time in 2024.

The former president defied Republican critics and those who blamed him for the GOP’s disappointing midterms to go full steam on stating his intent to be back in the Oval Office.

He filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission just moments before he began his speech to supporters at Mar-a-Lago.

In his stately Mar-a-Lago ballroom with opulent gold trimmings and chandeliers and in front of his family, he was introduced as the ‘next president’ to chants to ‘USA’.

‘America’s comeback starts right now’, he said.

I have no interest in Trump’s final campaign. First, there is no reason to pay any attention to the charade that is US politics anymore. It’s no more real than the WWE or the WWF. Second, between the support for the vaccines, the failure to cross the Rubicon, and the refusal to pardon or otherwise support the January 6 prisoners, I just don’t consider him to be a man who merits American support anymore.

The man already won the 2020 election and he refused to prevent it from being stolen from him. So how is he going to stop anything that he didn’t stop before? Sure, he was the best president the US had since Andrew Jackson, but that simply wasn’t enough. The hour was too late and the degree of difficulty too great.

We already know Americans aren’t going to vote their way out of the USA’s inevitable decline and fall. So what is the point in pretending that it’s possible? I expect this will end in much the same way Michael Jordan’s career ended after he unwisely decided to come out of retirement and play for the Wizards. I’m not blackpilled, I just don’t see any reason to care at all, because what will be is already underway.
