People are saying…

PeoplearesayingIt will take a while for the shock of the Presidential election to sink in.

Voters in California, Massachusetts, and Nevada approved the recreational use of Marijuana.  They will need plenty of it.

Economic markets around the world were already in turmoil before the final results came in Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.  Millions of new arrivals to the U.S. fear that a Trump administration will begin a massive campaign of deportation.  Women’s rights advocates fear more stringent restrictions on a woman’s right to control her own body.  Millions of people who have benefited from the Affordable Care Act (including millennials who are covered by their parents’ health insurance policies) are afraid of losing coverage.

The “Tea Party,” Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, and the most radical members of the Republican Party will control two of the three branches of Government: the Executive and Legislative branches.

The joy that many Trump supporters are experiencing now probably will not last long, as the full consequences of their victory becomes clearer.

Hillary was wrong.  “Love Trumps Hate” was a nice campaign slogan, but for now bigotry and hate have won.
