A Very Brief Word on US Politics

I always find it very interesting to read non-US news sources.  Of course, speaking English, I usually read British sources.  There is the Economist, of course, but my main source of news is the BBC web site.

Here is an article I really liked.  It explains so much of what is wrong with US politics.  Don’t read this as something about “gun rights” or “gun control”.  The main point of the article is how the minority point of view in this country often holds the rest of the country hostage.  No where is this more true than a very small but ultra powerful band of Republican Congressmen, the Freedom caucus, whose  zero compromise, ultra-radical right point of view often winds because they know how to shout the loudest.

The other huge issue with US politics is money, but that will have to wait for another day.
