I am afraid to look. I’ve been ready to cringe now and then in previous elections, but this is the first time I’ve truly been afraid to look. Because this election defines my country, and tells me what the majority of my countrymen think is right for us. If they’ve chosen hate as the new American ideal, I don’t know if I can cope with that. All the evil that has spewed from orange gas-bag man’s mouth, and it didn’t sway people at all. No one said, “Wait. What was I thinking, supporting him?” I’m not in one of those groups, unless he has a hate agenda against old white women, which he probably does, but I can imagine how those who are must be feeling. Like many of those same groups must have felt when the Nazis came to power. This could be the end for this great experiment in democracy. It’s only been about two and a half centuries, not a very long run if this is it. Gearing up, gearing up, gearing up. I really don’t want to look.
