Is the US Now the Most Dangerous Country in the World?

It really happened–and it almost feels like the beginning of a dystopian novel.  I am shock and awed as they say that Donald Trump has become the new president of the United States.  Sure the United States has ensured crappier presidents, worse campaigns, a Civil War, and many houses divided– but I am just hoping fascism does not grip too tightly on our neighbour south of the border.


Last nights win is where America proved it’s okay to sexually assault women, belittle minorities, disabled and veterans, defraud millions, lie about a billion and still hold office. I’d rather have a president who in the past exercised poor judgment, and could be surrounded by those who could steer them right, than one who continually proves to be of poor character.

So what happens now?

-How long will it be before the GOP repeals Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, OSHA, the EPA, and a myriad of  other advances of the 20th century?
-When will the working class wake up to the fact that the GOP sells them guns and God, but will never allow them a raise?
-What about Roe Vs. Wade or gay marriage? Will all this now be turned over to each state?-Will National parks will be sold, and coal ash and poison continue to blacken the air?
-Or even worse– I fear for the changes in the Supreme Court.


If the American electorate wanted change and they think Washington is broken, why are they sending most of Congressional incumbents back up there? Change? That’s a laugh. If things go wrong they will just continue to blame Obama and minorities and ignore the impact of Trump’s disastrous policies.


Along with this election win we have taught everyone that bullies win and women don’t matter. We have shown them racism and sexism is okay. Where did the highly touted values, morals and integrity go?  Parents will now have to explain to their children that someone who possesses none of those things was able to ascend to the presidency. I woke up this morning hoping this was a dream–unfortunately President Trump’s message will last far longer than his 4 years.


GOD BLESS AMERICA?

  1. I share your shock. Have been listening to the pundits explain, tired now. Will have to wait for the first shoe to drop to see what he is really made of.
