Wealth and income inequality have been staples of 2016 primary presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
The assumption that Trump won because the nation is outright racist I don’t believe. I do believe that there may be a better word to describe the behavior lately. Maybe ignorant is a more appropriate word to use. Most Americans, I would argue, are not racist but they are ignorant. That is not exclusive to Republicans or Democrats; it’s a human thing and possibly an American banner of pride in some circles.
I read a lot of articles online, many of them about politics lately. It seems that there are a lot of people trying to cope with the reality of a candidate with a 93% chance of winning somehow losing in a blowout. On top of that, I’m seeing a lot of people talking about how bad life is outside of the cities and how their way of life is gone. I read a lot of questions and complaints online, but never answers. It’s baffling; are we venting or do we really not know how to resolve our own problems? If we don’t know how to solve our hometown problems, how can we expect someone living in an ivory tower 2,000 miles away to know what is best for us?
Sometimes… Well, to be honest often times, we have to get outside of our comfort zones if we hope to grow as individuals.
I’m screaming inside… I’ve followed the political race these past two years more closely than I ever have any other year of my life and I regret it.
