Yeah yeah…I know…I know…”But you’re not an American“, “It’s none of your business“, “It’s our country and we’ll cry if we want to!”. Such would be the words of those who voted for the new President Of The United States, Donald Trump.
You’re right, i am not an American. Yet you’re probably not African American, Mexican, Gay or a Muslim. I think when it comes to the Worlds “Superpower” we all have a right to stick our nose in your business, especially since the United States has been sticking their nose in everybody elses business for the last 60 years.
With absolutely all due respect to my American friends and family let me for a moment try and relay something to you. Let us pretend American Politics is a person. Lets call this person Sally. Even though Sally is an old girl she has had a rough history. For some reason a lot of people have come forward to complain about Sally, who often intimidates them. Sally keeps leaving traces of herself around the hallways and threatening notes inside other girls lockers. For some reason Sally always finds an “enemy” and once that enemy gets expelled, lo and behold she will complain about a new “bad girl” in school. Sally blackmails other girls and tells them if they don’t do as she says she will then sanction them and make all their friends hate them. Sally is aggressive and often gets heavy handed with the other girls and she often accuses them of things that carry no evidence. Sally will also go to other girls lockers and steal their most prized belongings and she will manipulate you by claiming she’s the innocent one.
Would it be logical for me to say that perhaps….just MAYBE…Sally is *THE* problem?
Now let me take you away from that analogy and bring you back to reality. Donald Trump is The President Of The United States of America. My Facebook feed was full of shocked responses from around the World and the Canadian immigration website crashed. What i don’t understand is why are you shocked? How did the American people let it get to that? How did the American people let it boil down to Trump or Hillary?
Yes, i said it, i also do not like Hillary Clinton. I believe she is a sneaky war mongering liar. Why did the Americans reduce themselves to the “lesser of two evils“? Was this truly the only way? Why did you not rise and stand up when you realized the two evils you were facing are both dangerous custodians to your safety, security and economy?
Instead of doing things to change the system and shake the political vacuum you’ve all surrendered yourselves to- you go on and make jokes, funny parodies, lame memes and while you bicker in hysterics about the situation you are stuck in- this man ACTUALLY becomes the President of your country and now the tears are flowing…for some.
If that isn’t the saddest segway in modern history then i don’t know what is. In saying that, i believe in making most of all situations, including this one. Everybody deserves a chance, including my right testicle. Yet it’s a little more humble than Trump is.
In all seriousness who knows how it will play once he is in power? Perhaps he is an all talking kind of leader who won’t enact on his many dismal policies. Perhaps he will be a changed man and will mind blow the entire World with his wonderful policies that actually will make America great again. (Note: Don’t put bets on that).
In saying that i wish all of the people of the United States luck, because the sheer reality is that Donald Trump has been used as propaganda fodder by militants who use his policies as a means to recruit extremists…and you voted for him.
On that note i will love you and leave you. Believe me when i say that you, the American PEOPLE deserve better than both of these candidates. You deserve a leader that cares about you, your family, your values, your economy, your healthcare, your education, your human rights and your equality. The worst thing about this is that people may develop Stockholm Syndrome and actually start believing their President wants what is best for them. There is only one way to find out and time will tell.
Bless You All.
