There are Positives

Good Morning.

So.

I thought long and hard about a proper response to the results of 8 November. I have been pleasantly surprised, however, that my Facebook wall has not been totally overrun by dispatches from Dumbfuckistan. But two of my oldest and dearest friends from high school have decided to engage in an increasingly histrionic flame war that I've stayed out of. There have already been de-facings, and increasingly crude references to some anatomical areas that are usually not discussed in polite society. One can only hope it's a knee-jerk reaction at this time and perhaps it will pass.

Hi.... so...um... ya, not feeling very fluffy, funny or fierce at the moment. Can't turn on the news without wanting to cry and still just all kinds of pissed off. I'm sure we'll all move past this at some point to find our focus on how to get through the next few years. I am tired of hearing people say "it'll be ok" and "good people voted for..." , ya, no. Good people did not, selfish people did. See, still angry.

The resistance, however, started on 11/9.

WTF America?

WTF America?

This is the worst possible outcome for our country. A president Romney? That would have been bad. A president McCain (with a vice-president Palin)? Equally bad. But President tRump? That is a disaster.

On top of that, the Republicans retained control of the House and Senate. It's true that their margins were narrowed. But for at least the next two years the best we can hope for is no change. The worst? Well - every stock market is tanking because they know what's coming. The value of the U.S. dollar is plunging worldwide. For those who voted for tRump - have you checked your retirement accounts this morning?

In numerous states, in the electoral vote and the popular vote - it was essentially a tie. We don't do ties in presidential elections though. We wanted Clinton to win; we hoped for a blowout. Instead, we are looking at 4 years of President tRump. The rest of the world is shocked and concerned. Our place as a beacon on the hill is greatly diminished as we have elected a misogynist, racist, ignorant bully with no clue as to how the government works.

We are down to hours instead of months, weeks and days. Tomorrow is the final day Americans have to speak out. After the polls close tomorrow, we will know who we are as a nation. I want to tell you my personal election journey.
