Trump showed us the heart and soul of almost 50% of the American voter. Guess what, they have very little if any of either, and are also lacking in morals and character, which only supports my point of view that we are not and never have been a great country. Like most things American, it has been nothing more than marketing.
After living and working on three continents, all the other countries have problems most of which you really do not want to put up with or have to deal with especially if you are not connected by marriage or financially!!!
Most countries are actually more expensive to live in than here.
This country has always been controlled by the wealthy and their corporations!!!
We are painted a picture of this country that never has lived up to what is promised!!!
Many thanks for posting this. It sums up my feelings very well. When I've told friends that if Trump wins re-election that I would leave the US and become an expat they always ask why? Even if the USA doesn't get flushed down the toilet, do I want to continue living in a country where the majority, even an almost majority, would support someone like Trump? Is that the country I want to live in?
I saw a FB meme attributed to C. Ara Campbell that included: "Walk away from any garden that threatens to drain your soul, knowing you can create another." Here's our choice - continue to live in a country with at least 40% being Trumpers or start over somewhere else? I have started over before, I can do it again.
So we're just figuring out that we're a nation of spoiled racist neanderthals?
What was your first clue?
For me it was the nerd shaming in high school.
African Americans have been telling us the entire time, there's a certain racism uncovered when liberals are shocked at just how racist their country really is.
