The unnoted cost to Democrats of the Clinton and Obama administrations

Because of the obsession by the media and political leaders on the White House, a stunning fact about the Clinton and Obama administrations has been lost: that the two most recent Democratic presidents presided over the loss of over 1000 seats each in state legislatures.

Recently I have startedf to see members of the media discussing it, but it took a very long time for them to get there.

I know, I know. This is part of the new normal in US politics: people are so angry at the politicians for getting the shitty end of the stick for the last 40 years that they are instinctively opposed to the party that holds the White House.

Thus the country moved significantly to the left under Bush I & II, and significantly to the right under Clinton and Obama. It's clear that we'll move to the left under Trump; the only real difference now is that people are outraged at Trump even before he's taken the oath of office.

Republic = on average third world chaos.

If one looks at real republics across history and the world today the average of real republics is third world chaos and no one knows it !!!

As history repeats the far left and far right will get more hateful and radical.

How did the western republics become semi stable first world and why they are slowly losing that status is the first thing to understand to avoid the coming dark age.
