The End of Civility
It's not just the notion that Trump will run this country into the ground with misguided economic policies and a xenophobic foreign policy. For me, it's the look into the dark heart of America and those who have flocked to his banner. I had thought we were finally turning the corner away from racism, homophobia, sexism, xenophobia, and the crippling fear of the Bush years, but here we are. Like we never left It's a giant black festering mass teeming beneath the red, white, and blue. It's misappropriated the Gadsden flag and the other symbols of The Revolution. It's also armed to the teeth and angry. So angry.
I am once again legitimately frightened of my fellow countrymen. To me, these were people I disagreed with. To me, they're still Americans. To them, I am a traitor.
So what's the answer? Hillary Clinton sucks, but vote for her. Vote for sanity.
