Nice to get a little perspective from outside the hothouse.
I you will excuse my Canadian-ness, I have written a couple posts musing on the US election (before and after, as it happens). I’ve had good responses from my readers to both of them. My musings correspond roughly to much of what you say, so you might find the two posts linkable. God bless you all, God bless America and the world… and have mercy on us all.
