      “Always bet on the cornered rat!” And ‘cornered rats’ always double-down never concede anything. Sounds familiar. 😉

      They are called 'human' rights not "if politicians do not feel threatened" rights. Many politicians see national sovereignty/security as more important because they protect their power and wealth. Human rights often do just the opposite.

      National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not resolved with more national sovereignty.

      Name recognition will get Trump reelected. And it is hard to misspell his name too. That helps.

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.

      If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.

      Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…

      Never lost a dime on the cornered rat, eh? Must have not bet on Nixon finishing his second term, then.
