The First Battle In Biden’s America: MAGA vs. The GOP

Multiple preexisting socio-political fault lines are rapidly rising to the surface in Biden’s America, but among the few examples of friction that might actually be to the country’s ultimate benefit will arguably be the one between the Trump-inspired “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) movement and the Republicans (the “Grand Old […]
