The right to vote is a fairly new concept in terms of the history of the world. Yet we still don't appreciate or fully understand the real result of voting and what affect it can actually have. Evidence of this is the joke of a presidential election in America. Last night, sleepy and fatigued from the day, I attempted to stay up late in order to learn the outcome of this election as soon as possible. I made it to 5am and i just could not take it anymore.
This was always going to be a vote between two people who aren't the best candidates to be the most powerful figure in the world. Then, Hillary was a much more ideal candidate. After all, the facts are that she is not going to trial in December to answer to allegations of sexual assault from multiple women, to defend herself against a failed and corrupt university she started, but Donald trump is.
It's not just sensitive notions either. It's not just Trumps words that are scary. Already we are hearing about his stupid, idiotic policies. How Mike Pence is going to take away funding set aside for people with HIV/AIDS and use it to fund 'conversion therapy'. This is a horrible thing to say and an ultimately financially STUPID way of spending tax payers money. So if you did vote for this man and the devil that is his vice president, I cannot even justify berating you because I'm actually upset you exist. I completely disagree with any reason you may have for voting Trump. Put simply, you have just voted for 4 years of uncertainty and mass neglect of ALL minorities, women, children, the disabled and anyone who is not in the top 1% of the 1%
Fear can make anyone do incredibly DENSE things. Unfortunately for the world, the outcome of these Americans foolish spur of the moment choice has dire consequences. It's not like, after all, that Trump has shown any remorse or reason for being such an awful person. I tried to see if media was actually twisting his words or making him seem worse than he is. I personally did not believe that a man with such peculiar and patriarchal old world views could get this far. So surely he's got some decency. Where though? Where can this be found in a man that I'm very much certain did actually sexually assault those women who are saying he did. He can try to silence them, because thats what people who sexual assault do, They try to use their stance in society as a means to get away with it. The scary thing is Donald Trump has now been able to do the unthinkable and achieved the position in the highest office, has the most influence and power and it will be very hard now to actually get anywhere with restitution.
Never give up America, Fight and be free. It is your right to live in a country where you are accepted and understood. A country where you are listened to and have the power to change things for the better. Always have hope, and you will never be defeated.
