One day removed from the election, I woke up late in the day groggy. My first thought was the night before was a bad dream, and I was waking up on Election Day all over again. I check my phone, and I see President Trump. Emailed my govt job to call out sick and went back to sleep.
Reality has finally set in, and we will have our first president ever who has been Stone Cold Stunnered. But Tuesday, it was America and who was Stunnered, and the silent vote of hate came out in droves. Every Poll, every so called professional said she had it in the bag. I had faith in our country, to do the right thing... I was wrong. I have lost faith in the inherent justice and goodness in these United States. Just when I thought this country could move past the hate, racism, xepnophophia, sexism, and overall bigotry would be pushed passed and we could move forward. I made the mistake of not looking at the history of this country, and the hate that runs rampant. A country built on slavery trying to return to its roots, where a woman is a billion times more qualified, and the man is a rapist, he still gets elected. I would say the founding fathers would be ashamed but we have glorified them so much we forget they would be much closer to Trump than Hillary.
I don't know where our country is going in these next 4 years, but I am going to be brutally honest with you. I am terrified. I graduate college in those years and if the down drop Tuesday night is any indication of our future, the job market will be extremely scarce. I can only thank God I grew up in the bay area, because looking at the Rest of the country this shit is scary. All we can do now is fight for those who need it, protest in droves, and try to make the best world you can possible. Tears will be shed, people will be hurt, and everything is uncertain. I wish I could end on some trite happy note but Tuesday 11/9/16 my view of the American Dream died.
