One more to add to the bin:

"At some point that evening, Lennox allegedly called Bailey’s office in Springfield on his cellphone and left the following message:"

"'I am going to skin Darren Bailey alive, making sure he is still alive. And I’m going to feed his f*cking family to him, as he is alive and screaming in f*cking pain.'"

"'He is a piece of white *ss racist sh*t and, honestly, if he doesn’t kill himself, I will. You know what. I know where he lives. I know where he sleeps. I know where his kids sleep. And I know the f*cking school he works at,' Lennox allegedly continued."

"Lennox added that he would never shoot up a school, but Bailey is teaching 'all this motherf*cking misinformation [and] is going to die. So, honestly, he should just kill himself before anything else happens.'"

Bailey may be my least liked politician in Illinois at the moment (Big Lie proponent running for the Governor's chair), but this is getting nuts. In this case, it looks unlikely that the caller was going to actually carry out his s#!tposting threats, but as we saw with Paul Pelosi (another figure I'm no fan of), there's going to be someone else out there that picks up the hammer or skinning knife.

No, they are even MORE wrong than we think they are, and I speak of both parties. Voters keep voting for either the Democrats or Republicans based on the incompetence of the party in power in the moment. Until, and unless, we start voting for adherence to our founding documents and biblical standards of truth, this great experiment in self-governance will continue to circle the drain.

Your closing statement is true. Both parties suck. Not sure why you had to include a supposition about what might have happened to the economy under Trump without the slightest mention of the undeniable economic disaster under Biden.
