Many readers of my blog may not remember or know of the Cold War of 1947-1991. Here is the Wikipedia historical narrative:
|The Cold War In America 1950's|
During that period of my childhood, there were constant threats from both the United States and the Soviet Union. There was the ever present preparation for war. The Cuban missile crisis of 1962 almost turned the cold war, hot. The true mark of a cold war is mutual distrust, thus opposing sides must be ready at any moment to be mobilized and fight.

Elections are the fundamental foundation of a democracy, thus leading to a peaceful transfer of power dictated by the majority outcome.
Some 40 percent of Americans believe that the 2020 presidential election, won by President Joe Biden, was rigged or stolen. Some 36 percent of respondents disagreed that the election was stolen. Among this group of respondents who believe in the legitimacy of the 2020 election, some 45 percent said they don't think it's understandable why some may have doubts about its integrity.
That is a huge divide on a fundamental issue.
Today's toxic atmosphere makes it difficult to negotiate on important issues, which makes people angry with the federal government. This has created a winner-take-all approach to politics with no compromise; each blaming the other. When the stakes are so high, people are willing to consider extraordinary means to achieve their partisan / cult objectives. A "Cold War" of mutual distrust with opposing sides ready at any moment to be mobilized and fight!
Let us see how the election plays out tonight - Stay Tuned.
