Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Wow! Did the Sun rise this morning? In HEEUUUGE and shocking fashion, and in the face of a great majority of the political polls and pundits, Donald Trump has proven his detractors and doubters wrong! Donald Trump prevailed and is now President-elect Donald Trump, and he is scheduled to take office as the donald-trump-170843345th President of The United States on January 20th, 2017.

Never have I been more confused and demoralized by a Presidential election. Are there really that many selfish and spiteful people in America? Are there really that many of us whom prefer:

  • Exclusion over Inclusion [Immigration]
  • Deportation over Family [Illegal Immigration]
  • Profit over Environment [Energy]
  • Conspiracy over Science [Global Warming]
  • Rejection over Acceptance [Muslims]
  • Protectionism over Free Trade [Trade Deals]
  • Innuendo over Facts [Hillary Clinton]
  • Selfishness over Loyalty [Allies]
  • Disinformation over Truth [President Obama’s Birth]
  • Objectification over Respect [Women]
  • Political Incorrectness over Human Dignity [Society]
  • Retaliation and Personal Attacks over Discussion of Issues [Political Opponents]
  • Narcissism over Humility [Debates]
  • Obfuscation over Transparency [Tax Returns]

I have often wondered how 13 colonies thought slavery was acceptable for over 200 years, despite its cruelty, inhumanity, and selfishness; and now I fear I have my answer. YES, there are that many of us whom prefer selfishness over compassion and aggression over kindness. The next four years will certainly be interesting, lets hope they don’t bring an end to civilization.
