While re-reading what I wrote two years ago about Republican’s addiction to scapegoating, a question occurred to me. I think it was widely expected that the 2022 midterm elections would be highly influenced by inflation and the state of the economy that we are now experiencing, but yet it was abortion and election denial that influenced the election even more. I wonder though, is the fact that these topics were the main influencers good? Or was the result of the election that those who are profiting significantly from our current state given a free pass?
