I cannot believe the people of America can be so dumb so as to believe all the fake news. But recently I have been reading a book that says you can train your brain to do anything. And one of that training is to believe a lie. Yeah! Weird eh!? The biggest lie we tell ourselves is that we have forgiven someone for something terrible they did. The very honest truth is that no one can forgive. We learn to live with the "acceptance" that we cannot change the past - so we fool ourselves into believing that we have "forgiven" the person. This is a big lie.
That is what happened in this election. All the people who have lost the coal jobs, the manufacturing jobs somehow believe that this man can bring them back are delusional. They want to believe....just because it gives them a sense of hope that they were not getting from the other side. So whoever can speak to their "belief" is going to be their saviour.
The other big factor I felt was that Trump's whiteness and his golden hair (and his children's golden hair). He is a story book character - all white and golden, rich, has his own plane, has a model for a wife etc etc....People somehow revere that more than honesty of a person. A lie told by this golden haired person was much more believable than a the truth spoken by a white woman. I don't think white women realize that they are going to be a minority soon - especially in the work place.
So back to acceptance. At this point, I have to accept that we will not have a sane person at the helm of USA. We will have a rich person who only sees money and power. The people on the way are just nuisance to be trampled on to get to his goal. Every time this man appoints a member of his cabinet there is an uproar in the press of negative things about that person.
We have to accept that things will not be normal. This is the season of losers. All the people who were losers in their campaigns or districts are now employable. They were losers because of their bad policies - but now because of this one big loss for America, we will be led by the losers of all USA. All the policies will be extreme and not in the best interest of America - only in the best interest of the person in charge. Unless the GOP wakes up and does something - which they will not, we really have nowhere to go. So best accept it - fight it if you can.....
My place in this world is so small right now. I feel powerless and hopeless to do anything. I have to wait for people in power to do the right thing. But it is kalyug...one cannot hope for anything good. As everyone says things will get worse before they get good. I thought we had already been through that with Bush - but I guess there is more worse that USA has to see.
I will accept all the changes Trump is bringing. He will not do anything good for the country, but people voted for him and he needs to do what he needs to do .....
