I used to think that what's wrong with America could be fixed by what's right with America

My faith is faltering now.

We're about to enter some really harmful times as a nation and we only have ourselves to blame.

The saddest part is that, by looking at the popular vote, most of us knew better but were unable to stop it from happening.

We're now about to fall hard because we've all never realized what our true potential is. False narratives abound and will lead to harsh times at the expense of the many, in order to benefit the few.

After we fall, perhaps we will find a way to pick ourselves up. But that will require some faith. I just don't see it happening anytime soon.

2. the problem is -

we are dealing with a corporate mind set now. trump's campaign was identical to the PR efforts of large corporations. We will not be fighting through government channels but rather facing the clout of corporations. Most will not be able to handle those hammers. Meanwhile a large part of our population is celebrating their white privilege - what they sold this country for. They will remain ignorant if for no other reason than to protect their self image. And frankly - the truth is most people are followers who feel comfort in having an overlord.

It looks like many of us have reached the step of acceptance and a clear eyed view of this reality. I believe about all we can do is set up a legal foundation and investigate and sue where possible. That is the only remedy to fight corporations.
