In the more than two and a half years since the 46th president of the United States Joe Biden entered the White House, there has been a general feeling of uncertainty and instability within the United States. Massive spending packages touted by Biden and the Democrats in Congress in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic helped to produce record levels of inflation which have crushed the already struggling middle class. Some 60% of American citizens are estimated to be living paycheck to paycheck, and housing prices have skyrocketed, making home ownership nearly unattainable for a majority of Americans. The value of the dollar continues to decline , and people are struggling like never before to make ends meet. At the southern border, millions of illegal migrants are estimated to have entered the nation since the commencement of Biden’s term, and the problem remains unaddressed.
As things continue to deteriorate domestically, the state of international affairs inches closer and closer to global war. Emboldened by incompetent American leadership, Russia invaded Ukraine in early 2022, bringing armed conflict back to the European continent for the first time since the end of the second world war. Months prior, in the summer of 2021, Biden orchestrated a withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan and forfeited billions of dollars of military equipment and supplies to the Taliban while 13 Americans died in the chaos. China remains threatening in the Pacific and continues to act aggressively.
On October 7th, the Islamic terrorist group Hamas invaded Israel and murdered over 1,000 innocent civilians. The military industrial complex, arguably in control of many bureaucrats in the Biden administration and Congress, stands to profit from the conflicts. Biden’s secretary of state Andrew Blinken told the Senate that more funding would be needed in the form of aid to Israel, and that if some was diverted from Ukraine instead of appropriating additional money, Putin would emerge victorious in the conflict.
