American patriots are celebrating an historic victory with the Democrats’ stunning win of both seats in the Georgia Senate election. We can only imagine how treasonous Trump supporters and the radical lunatic right are hurting right now; for all the sensible progressive people in Western democracies, this is as good as it gets.
President, and Vice President-elect, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, can now implement their long-overdue reform program that the American people overwhelmingly voted for at the general election, without the usual obstruction by the extreme right-wing Republican Party.
A major shift on climate change policy and gun culture can now be achieved with Democrats controlling all three tiers of government. But even more importantly, the criminality and subversion that has been rife within the entire Trump administration and family, can now be pursued with renewed vigour, now the protection of the Presidency and Senate has been neutralized.
Not since the heyday of the American mafia has corruption existed at such high levels with the perpetrators operating with impunity. There are many existing lawsuits, both State and Federal, ready to be served on Trump and his cohorts. We are going to have a great year watching ‘Crooked Donald’ and Co finally cop what they deserve.
