Stunned


The election of Trump south of the border has me stunned. Over the past year we have watched as Trump the demagogue invoked racism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia and fear in the American people. Appealing to everything that is base, while wrapping himself in the flag of patriotism and nationalism he rode a wave of fear into the White House. His election is a triumph against hope, possibility and change. Those who voted for him are the same individuals who destroyed their world voting in Reagan and Bush. It is so peculiar how those who are motivated by fear sow the seeds of their own destruction voting in those who create the very inequality they fear. Are we witnessing the last gasp of a fearful state or the future of a country lost. It leaves you breathless and sadly, afraid.
