      Maybe it was an optimistic assessment when Biden said nothing would fundamentally change. Is this a sign that things will get fundamentally worse?

      From https://on.rt.com/axvt :

      Joe Biden’s promise to roll back Donald Trump’s immigration policies on “day one” appears to already be untrue as advisers say the reversals will “take time” and remain in place once the Democrat takes office.

      “Donald Trump has slammed the door shut in the face of families fleeing persecution and violence. On day one, I will eliminate President Trump’s decision to limit asylum and end the MPP [Migrant Protection Protocols] program,” Biden tweeted in January.

      “It appears that the inclusion of a policy in a campaign platform, or a promise by a candidate trying to win votes, doesn’t actually mean that’s what will be done once the person is in power,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted.

      “Biden plans to use the cages he and Obama built when he is president. He is urging patience,” another user added.

      Will be voting against Biden/Vichy Dem in 2024.   2022 – Highly doubt the Florida Democratic Party will be running any progressives, so no vote, unless there is a third party on the ballot.  And any progressive who wins would be stomped all over in Congress, anyway.

      Many years ago, it was explained, over at SV, that it was perfectly okay for a Democrat to lie during a campaign, because the only important thing was getting elected.   And OBVIOUSLY, Vichy Dem candidates have been doing just that, lying and lying and pandering, and then not following through, for a long long time.  The objective is getting to the trough.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

      Promise them everything. Give them platitudes and excuses.
