I was going to write a relatively even-handed assessment of the Federalist Papers, including how the Founding Fathers in many ways would not have approved of the massive expansion of federal power in the 20th Century. But I just don't feel up to it, since I am so sick at heart. I think I'll also have to return the Election DVD unwatched. This really is like Brexit times 10, with all the polling gone completely haywire.
I suppose Canada will be affected by America as it goose-steps towards who knows what (but nothing good). But it will still be better to watch even from only a narrow distance (rather than live under President Trump). I've already decided I will take Canadian citizenship as soon as it is possible. It looks like that is about 18 months from now. That's really all I have to say at the moment.
