I don’t generally like to talk politics on my blog, but I think the current close political race is a time to be honest and communicative. The fact that the voting is so close is both disheartening and frightening.I am actually sickened tonight to be a United States citizen, because a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for racism and misogyny, and there are far too many votes for Trump for comfort.
At this point, it no longer matters who wins the election. America is broken. America is filled with stupidity and hatred, and those two attributes cannot be reasoned with, and should not be tolerated.
Donald Trump’s candidacy is a joke to the rest of the world (as it should be), and was considered a joke by many here in America. How could anyone be seriously contemplating leading the U.S. of A., and say the blatant, media-byte, hateful things with which his campaign started? Maybe Trump has been joking this whole time. Maybe he has been doing everything he possibly can to get people not to vote for him. Maybe he’s actually much more savvy than he appears, and would be a great leader. But that’s not why people voted for him.
People voted for him because life is hard, and it’s easier with a scapegoat. People who should have known better conveniently ignored the fact that the same mania that started WWII had eerie parallels with Trump’s campaign rallies. And now he is a legitimate potential president. Let’s cross our fingers and hope that potentiality does not prove to be America’s future.
And let us also realize that even if Trump is not, ultimately, (please, please, please, please) our president, America has serious issues. Issues that need to be resolved. Because right now, at this moment? This America is not one of which anyone should be proud.
