10) The Democratic-Republican Party is passé, out of touch and old. We should have learned this long ago, but it became a teaching point this year. Anyone watching US national politics gets a steady drumbeat of decrepit, dementia-ridden crankiness, and that's with the sound turned off. Any of the younger folks representing the uni-party have an air of a harried caretaker pulling double shifts in a memory-impaired facility. If the internet provided smells with the sound, we'd have the scent of urine and old sheets.
9) The Democratic-Republican Party does not like being called a uni-party. It also is wary of the newly popular and even chic term "deep-state" because it suspects the term refers indelibly to something they deeply admire and fundamentally need.
8) The Democratic-Republican Party hates the young. Perhaps, they resent the young, rather than hate them, with the resentment of beggars and borrowers to their betters and their slaves. Or perhaps it is simply fear. They look into the contaminated maw of the debt and dependency monster they created – and the young increasingly behave as if repudiation of that debt system and abandoning the monster is a rational and necessary course of action.
