Who's kidding who?

America is a changing country and not in a good way. It once was a country of equal rights for each person who have been here for several decades to those who came to the states looking for freedom and a better way to live. The slow decline has been headed to the right wing thinking. Thus came along Trump, he has poured gasoline on the fire to change the landscape of what this country is about. The right wing dreams are coming true! A country of prejudice of those who are deemed unsafe to their way of life. The right wing people feel that they are superior to those who disagree with them. Now, they have the Supreme Court to give them what they have been wanting for some time. A bias, impartial to the right judges. One final thing. Trump is the one who gains the most! He will have a court who will give him the power to take the country down even further.

1. Yep. If you want to immigrate to another country, do so now.

You won't be able to later. As for us, we are now to old to move easily and will have to ride out the dictatorship.

3. It wasn't

But through the 90s and 2000s up through 2016 there was a substantial amount of lips service to the idea of equal rights - reality didn't live up to the rhetoric, I agree, but at least they were pretending a bit.

With the rise of Trump they are not going to pretend anymore - and I would not be surprised if things got a lot worse very quickly.
