“Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted.”
― Aldous Huxley,
The masses have spoken and what they have said is that they no longer wish to live in a democratic nation, a nation that respects all people, not just white male people. They have said that they do not respect the rights of others, but care only about themselves. So be it.
So many of us worked so hard to save this nation from itself, to open the eyes of the citizens of this nation, to show them what kind of person Donald Trump actually is, to deter them from making what is almost certain to be the biggest disaster this nation has ever seen. All for nothing. I and many others have spent 10-12 hours a day researching and writing well into the wee hours of the night for months, for a cause we believed was the most important one in not only our nation, but across the globe. All for nothing.
Rather than listen to facts, rather than think for themselves, the majority in the U.S. listened to the lies, rumours, gossip and propaganda spread by one man and his minions. To those who voted for Trump, let me just say that you deserve what you get. I predict that one short year from now you will be kicking yourselves and asking “what the Sam Hell did we do?”
Tonight, as I write this, financial markets across the globe are plunging. This, my friends, is the result of the folly of those who voted for a madman. The world understands that he is a madman. Those of us who are thinkers understand that he is a madman. Those who cannot or will not look beyond the nose on their face, those who only consider their own personal comfort, think he will ‘make America great again.’ No, friends, he will make America, and perhaps the rest of the world, bleed … and for a very long time. Hillary Clinton is not the only one who lost tonight. We all lost … more than most people realize.
Meanwhile, I and people of conscience will continue doing what we do, we will not be silent, for those of us who care about the greater good cannot sit by and let our nation self-destruct at the hands of a madman. I hope that someday we succeed, for I am sad to say that today, I am not proud to be an American. I am ashamed of the people of this nation and I no longer want to be a part of the madness.
And now, please forgive the somber tone and the brevity of this post, but I haven’t the heart to write any more right now. Filosofa will return soon, but for now I am going to bed. Good night.
