The 2020 US presidential campaign is already underway. With each day that passes between now and election day, all other topics will receive less attention, both from talking heads on the news and from regular folks (and bots) in the social media universe.
This is quite unfortunate because the race for this office is far less important than a myriad of other topics, chief among them the environment and (inextricably connected) US militarism.
“But wait,” insists the true-believer political junkie. “The outcome of this race will have a big effect on those issues.”
Yeah, except that it won’t.
