But it’s not a game. Elections are deadly serious. When we watch the electoral results scrolling across the bottom of the screen on a cable news channel on election night, we should indeed be on the edges of our seats. But approaching those results as if the outcome is akin to the victor winning a championship or the loser missing the postseason is dangerous. Those results are more than just the ability to boast on social media if your guy wins, those results could very well impact how you live the rest of your life.
Elections are infinitely more consequential than a World Series or Stanley Cup. Our futures can be dramatically affected by the buffoonery and incompetence of an elected official. Let’s consider this example of our esteemed Commander-in-Chief on Friday, and then let’s put it into context.

The comments are important enough that we have the two most powerful people in the world together, along with a member of their Cabinet, to ensure we get the message. By their very presence, they’re telling us, “What we’re saying is critical, and you need to hear us.” But President Joe Biden is mostly incoherent and incapable of recognizing that he’s supposed to repeat the line he just read. The text “repeat the line” was an instruction, not content.
Now we must examine the significance of such moments. In this instance, the stakes may not be that high. Biden is yapping about the Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs V Jackson, and what he’s trying to say, very poorly, is mostly bluster. It’s political. He’s trying to stir up his leftwing base and send a message that he cares about their “right” to kill their babies. What he’s saying is mostly blah, blah, blah.

Yet we must also remember, that Biden’s not only responsible for judicial nominees and certain aspects of public health policy, he’s also the guy with his finger on the button. At Joe Biden’s direction, nuclear weapons can be launched; or not launched. It is Biden, and if anything happens to him it is Vice-President Kamala Harris, who is tasked with overseeing our national security, our foreign policy, and military actions when they’re taken. And when we see episodes like this, it should scare the living daylights out of all of us.
This isn’t a game. These two clowns are running our federal government, along with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. Our well-being and that of our families are in the hands of Dumb and Dumber, and if that doesn’t frighten you, then you’re not paying attention.
In November, the power of this administration needs to be hemmed in by removing the Democratic Party from the control of both houses of Congress. And in two years, we cannot afford to have four more years of a Democratic presidency, regardless of who their pathetic candidate will be. And there will be a lot more at stake than just bragging rights amongst friends.
