SHAME OF THE NATION
ANGRY. FEARFUL. DISILLUSIONED.
UNEDUCATED. CREDULOUS. MISINFORMED.
IRRATIONAL. UNSYMPATHETIC. AGGRESSIVE.
INTOLERANT. JINGOISTIC. XENOPHOBIC.
MISOGYNISTIC. HOMOPHOBIC. RACIST.
DESPERATE. DECEIVED. DEPLORABLE.
This list of qualities—in part or in full—applies to half of all Americans who voted in the 2016 Presidential Election.
To be sure, both major candidates are flawed, and neither outcome was ideal. But all those who believe that an unprincipled billionaire entrepreneur will be their savior are deluding themselves.
Democracy and capitalism are allegedly what make America a great and powerful nation. However, our government is fractured, and business values profit over people. Congress and Wall Street are far too intertwined, resulting in collusion and corruption.
Whether career politician or CEO, neither cares about their constituents or customers—we’re all just numbers to be crunched.
In this time of mourning, I extend my sincerest sympathies to the entire world. America failed. Hatred has triumphed.
