I've never understood why American politicians get away with ranting about their opponents' "crimes" and "ethical abuses" in their campaigns and then never holding those same opponents accountable for the "ethical abuses" or prosecuting them for the same "crimes" after they defeat them. "We have to move forward, not dwell on recriminations" has become an axiom, or mantra, of spineless politicians in both parties. Sadly, the American sheeple always fall for it, just like the Mexicans do, and there's never a shortage of ordinary citizen droids among the common people who run around mouthing it themselves. People seem to be hard-wired to wax optimistic in the face of any apocalypse or serious societal problems because that's easier than facing reality and doing something about it. Human nature, when faced with a choice between expediency and doing the right thing, will, sadly and most often, opt for the former. So, most are willing to buy into the "move forward" b.s. and thus abandon accountability because although it's delusional, it's easy. The sheeple never figure out that even when they give "move forward" politicans the space they ask for by not demanding that they go after their predecessors, things still never get any better. It's almost analogous to the planned "feuds" in professional wrestling, wherein the advantage seesaws back and forth between "heroes" and "villains" from week to week, thus maintaining the long-term interest of credulous fans who can't resist coming to the matches perpetually so they can see whether "good" will ultimately triumph over "evil." It never dawns on them that there will be no ultimate resolution because the people running wrestling don't want one; it would be bad for their wallets The repetitive "move forward" dynamic does give one pause for speculation. Have both sides been in cahoots from the beginning and agreed, behind-the-scenes, on the oligarchy's pre-planned agenda for the country, with the "criminals" and "ethical abusers" being the conservative "bad cops" and their "move forward" no-accountability successors being the liberal "good cops?" "Good cops," after all, are ultimately after the same results as "bad cops," and most of the time, "move forward" proponents not only fail to demand accountability; they also fail to truly "move forward." Meanwhile, political criminals of all stripes who objectively violate laws and standards continue to walk, proving conclusively that the well-connected in America enjoy legal and moral impunities unavailable to ordinary citizens. Why should we have any faith in a system that allows this to happen?
