During 2020 a very particular political phenomenon occurred, two candidates faced each other to define the presidency of the United States, Joe Biden for the Democratic Party, and Donald Trump for the Republican Party, but what should have been an election among the American people, became a kind of world election, with political activists, thinkers, writers, journalists and twitterers debating day and night about the American elections and trying to influence as many people with the right to vote in the United States to favor one candidate or the other.

A large part of the Latino community — except for Mexicans —, mostly crushed by collectivist and socialist regimes, mobilized in favor of Donald Trump, frightened by the radicalism of the new Democratic Party and seeing in Joe Biden a rather docile and permissive candidate with the totalitarian regimes of the world, taking into account the past fellowship between the Obama administration — of which Biden was Vice President —, with the Castro tyranny in Cuba.

Those who have escaped from countries destroyed by socialism took the electoral race in the United States very personally and immersed themselves in intense debates to try to explain to the world what would happen in the great world power if Joe Biden won the presidency with this new Democratic Party almost transformed into the “Socialist Party of America;” However, the efforts of these people were in vain, after a November 3 in which it seemed that Trump would repeat his mandate in the White House, the following day the numbers began to favor Biden, and finally it was decreed — before continuous accusations of fraud on the part of Trump that never ended up materializing — that Joe Biden would be the new president of the United States.

Seven months have passed since Mr. Biden took office and what many predicted has come true, the United States is going through one of the worst political, economic and diplomatic crisis in its history; numerous countries have raised protests over Biden’s unilateral decision to pull the army out of Afghanistan and leave power to the Taliban; the biggest immigration crisis in decades has exploded on the southern border; inflation is skyrocketing, the public debt is growing more and more, and to top it all off, Biden refuses to answer questions to the press. Yes, all this has happened in less than a year.

The political crisis in the United States affects the whole world

Now, those who warned that this would happen need no explanation, but there is a half of the country that still does not understand, that has its brain and emotions strongly committed to the propaganda distributed by CNN and that has succumbed to the new woke totalitarianism that is spreading through the streets of the United States.

We already know, in the great power of the world a cultural war has been waged for decades to shatter the basic foundations of the country, to do away with the legacy of Washington, Jefferson, Adams and company, and build the new wall of Marxist resistance in the north of America; However, many have been called crazy, schizophrenic, conspiracy theorists, among other pejorative terms, and most probably they will continue to be called so, because those who do so are the same who promote the idea of a new “egalitarian” and socialist America, where all the power is held by politicians and the citizens are their slaves; welcome to the sovietization of America.

I know because I have lived this story, in Venezuela they never believed that we would become worse than Cuba, even when food started to disappear from the supermarkets and they started to put up signs saying “you can only take one sugar packet per family,” many still said that we would never reach the level of backwardness of the socialist paradises, and so time went by; most Venezuelans did not understand that they had surrendered their freedoms years ago until they felt the military boot crushing their brains, but it was already too late.

The United States, the former land of liberties, has been gradually turning into a land of restrictions, and if you do not believe me you can ask the Californians and New Yorkers. We probably won’t see food shortages in the supermarkets anytime soon in the still capitalist nation, but we have already seen fuel shortages at the gas stations, dreadful intervention in the economy, tax plans by the Democratic Party that aims to confiscate half of the citizens’ income, and of course, we have also seen lately the Obama and Biden administrations cuddle or cave into the terrorists and oppressors of the world.

As the American nation self-destructs, as its economy collapses, as its population remains confused and losing its sense of patriotism, the further it will recede on the world’s geopolitical chessboard, and guess who takes those spaces?

The Afghan debacle should concern you no matter where you live

That is why the Afghan debacle should also worry you, and very much so, today in the Middle East the terrorists have won, they have new weapons and feel confident; while the police of the world retreat, the bad guys advance. Today the victims are Afghan women, and tomorrow…?

Remember the attack on the Twin Towers? That should be another reminder to you, with terrorists on the loose and American administrations increasingly docile to evil, you’ll be less safe too.

The democrats talk very nice, always with egalitarianism, environmentalism, and “social justice” in front, but come on, sure you are smarter than that, look beyond, look around, is the world a better place with Joe Biden in power? Will you be safer if the United States is a country increasingly socialist and radicalized by the left?

Today it was Afghanistan, but tomorrow the Taliban could come to your house.
