Superposition: In any network with 2 or more sources, the current or voltage for any component is the algebraic sum of the effects produced by each source acting separately. The superposition of forces in a mechanical/electrical network results in compromise and allows the building of better bridges and interfaces. Using one ideology is like using half of a pair of pliers to grasp something. My avatar represents the % of approval, by party, that our congress enjoys. John Adams wrote in a letter in 1780: "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." "I was no party man myself, and the first wish of my heart was, if parties did exist, to reconcile them." GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Thomas Jefferson, July 6, 1796.

    We get the government we deserve when we politically equate superstitious/religious authoritarian ideology with knowledge, science, and proportionally represented democratic ideology based on critical thinking, The greatest threat to democracy is an undereducated electorate unwilling to trust/respect each other to govern themselves fairly … but willing to submit to the will of a popular tyrant.

    It’s not easy to have an interactive discussion with a deontological libertarian who sees only self-advantage as acceptable.

    “… Some deontological libertarians such as Ayn Rand advocate a minimal government to protect individuals from any violation of their rights and to prosecute those who initiate force against others. Others such as Murray Rothbard advocate the abolition of the state as they see the state as being an institutionalized initiation of force due to taxation. Their view of natural rights is derived, directly or indirectly, from the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas and John Locke. Hans-Hermann Hoppe advocates the abolition of the state on the basis of argumentation ethics. …” — wikipedia.Org/wiki/Natural-rights_libertarianism

    My greatest fear that his successor will be much worse … now that the way has been shown.

    “… The American Dream might look a little different for everyone. But at its heart, it promises upward mobility, the opportunity to attain success no matter what situation you might be born into.

    Recent research shows that’s more likely to happen in Denmark, Germany, Australia, and the UK.

    In a recent paper titled The Intergenerational Persistence of Poverty in High-Income Countries, academics at Bocconi University and Rockwool Foundation and Stockholm University explored how poverty persists across generations in multiple countries.

    Their finding: “Intergenerational poverty in the U.S. is four times stronger than in Denmark and Germany, and twice as strong as in Australia and the UK.” …" —businessinsider.Com/american-dream-social-economic-mobility-more-likely-germany-denmark-australia-2023-6

    McConnell did the best he could to preserve the presence in government of a party — with no solutions to the nation’s problems — by packing the courts, to counter, through disproportionate representation, the overall disapproval of his party’s policies by the electorate.

    Tell me again how government by geezers — with a 2024 “my geezer is better than your geezer” campaign — coupled with a dysfunctional/obstructive/do-nothing Congress and politically polarized courts — unites the graying deeply divided American people in common causes and makes us stronger, trustworthy, respected, and more resilient … the envy of all other nations.

    Would any of us (non-“billionaires”) be able to delay justice for our criminal behavior by citing the irrelevant personal behavior of prosecutors?

    Tell me again — calmly, without thoughtless yelling — how a deeply divided, distrusting, disrespectful, undereducated, willfully ignorant, [vengeful, Old Testament] quasi-theocratic political system will make the US great by eliminating democracy and equal opportunity for all.

    Tell me again how the lack of affordable housing/medical care/education, clean air/water, and infrastructure maintenance [especially our overburdened electrical grid] will make the US great for everyone who lives/works here.

    Too bad the US electorate chooses to have a non-collaborative, dysfunctional, obstructive, [self-destructive] Congress as immigration reform is obviously needed.

    Tell me again why those without medical licenses or advanced degrees in biology are allowed to determine when a collection of cells is legally a person.

    “… The Alabama Supreme Court has had an unusually high turnover in the chief justice position, going back to October 1995. Since then, the post has been occupied by eight different individuals for nine different time periods. Not one of these individuals has completed an entire term of six years.

    Perry Hooper Sr., elected in 1994, did not assume the office until October, 1995, after a protracted election contest that prevented him from taking office until nine months into the term. He was succeeded by Roy Moore, who was elected in 2000 but removed from office due to violations of the judicial canon of ethics. Associate Justice Gorman Houston acted as temporary chief justice during Moore’s suspension but before his actual removal from office. After Moore vacated the office, the Governor appointed Drayton Nabers Jr. Sue Bell Cobb defeated Chief Justice Nabers in 2006. Cobb resigned for personal reasons in the middle of her term. Her replacement, Chuck Malone was appointed on August 1, 2011, by Governor Robert Bentley but was defeated for re-nomination by former Chief Justice Roy Moore in 2012.

    Moore assumed the office a second time beginning in January 2013, and was again suspended from office on May 6, 2016, by the Court of the Judiciary. Associate Justice Lyn Stuart became chief justice on April 26, 2017, when Moore formally resigned from the seat from which he was already suspended. Moore then sought election to the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions for which a special election was held in December 2017. …
