What To Expect After January 20th

Now that the Electoral College has confirmed that Joe Biden has been elected as the 46th President and Kamala Harris as the 49th Vice President, there's no doubt that we'll at least see some actual governance again. But don't take this as the end all and be all just yet, as their inaugurations on January 20th are just another step into getting ourselves out of the hole Donald Trump and Co. dug us into over the past 4 years. We'll also start to see the final destruction of Mitch McConnell's reign of terror and obstruction.

We could also start to see the start of a particularly bad schism among Republicans between the MAGA (Make America Great Again) crowd and the Never-Trumpers that's going to get ugly fast. While this trend may mean short term gains for the Democrats, this isn't viable long-term. We need a party that can tilt leftward, and the only way to do that is to have a center-right political party to balance a center-left one. We can't have this dynamic between a center-right party (Democratic Party) and a far-right one (Republican Party). This type of dynamic ensures that reforms don't get implemented when they're badly needed. The political and social structures we have are not functioning properly, and it's only breeding more radicalism.

We need to ensure that we fight like hell to keep Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, together with Chuck Shumer and Nancy Pelosi, don't lead us back to business as usual. We're still going to be fighting against the same powerful corporate interests that allowed Donald Trump to become president in the first place. They're not going to give up their spoils without a loud fight. If anything, we need to ensure that we tackle the causes of the radicalization that followed Barack Obama's departure from the presidency back in January 2017.

1 other dynamic to watch after January 20 is the interactions between Russia and China. Despite Vladimir Putin's bluster, the 2 countries are not as united as he claims they are. The reason is very simple, Xi Jin-ping is pissed at Putin for meddling in China's economic relations with America by egging on Trump's trade war for the last 2 years. As stated before watch the Russia-China diplomatic relationship carefully from the time Biden and Harris are inaugurated.
