End of the American Dream
Elections have consequences, and the results that have been coming in from all over the country during this primary season are making it very clear where both major political parties are heading. For the Democrats, we have seen a number of progressive candidates win extremely impressive victories lately, and that includes knocking off a couple moderate Democrats that had been serving in Congress for a very long time. On the other side, conservative challengers have been soundly defeated by moderate Republicans over and over again. As funny as this may sound, both parties appear to be moving in the same direction at this point. Both parties appear to be moving to the left, and that has fundamental implications for the future of this nation.
