Here’s a theory for you.
I won’t be the slightest bit surprised, and you can remember you heard it here first, that in the upcoming elections, that the Russians, if they want to cause maximum turmoil and upheaval here in the US (and don’t kid yourself, that’s their goal), in the upcoming midterms, or perhaps they will wait until the next election, but I think they will switch from helping Republican candidates to helping Democrats.
So while we’re all judging the Russians and their influence and how it may have hurt the candidates we support or hurt the ones we dislike how ironic it will be if the Dems win big thanks to Russian meddling. Will Dems be willing to question how they won and whether or not any Dem candidates accepted help from Russians (as the Russians will undoubtedly try to put Dem candidates and even left wing organizations in the same position Republican and right wing organizations (like the NRA) find themselves in now by providing stolen information etc).
Gentlemen, what we have here is a war. And the Russians are fighting it brilliantly. They are splitting our parties into two and will try to do it in such a way that the party in power will have little incentive to stop it as stopping it will mean relinquishing power and/ or admitting that how they gained that power was due to a hostile foreign power.
It’s a shame that Dems can’t put their partisan differences aside and stop using the Russia interference as a way to assume political power (to which I’m also guilty to this point).
While I don’t like Trump and I think he’s a horrible President, I’ve come to believe that unless we see the real game being played here in the end we’re all going to lose (well, unless infighting between Americans is something you think would be good).
Unfortunately, I don’t think it will stop. The thirst for power is too great and the Left and the Right will be too consumed with grabbing that power and won’t be able to unite against it’s common enemy.
