It's Over

The American people have voted, and in doing so, they have elected a candidate who has made it okay to slur entire races, pigeonhole women as sexual objects who exist for nothing more than providing sexual pleasure to superior males, give huge tax breaks to the richest among us, and other ideas such as privatizing infrastructure at the expense of us working stiffs who will be paying the tolls.  When the leader of the Ku Klux Klan makes the announcement that, "We've done a wonderful thing," we should all be so very afraid.

This is the United States of America, and because it is, I am allowed to have an opinion.  It may be different from yours, but it doesn't make either of us wrong.  Today, I am sad and embarrassed for us as a nation who elected a racist, elite, misogynist to lead and represent us for the next four years.  It is where we will be lead that scares me to the core.
