Well, we have a new president coming next January. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this, but all I know is we're going to have an interesting four years. Already after few days since the election, riots have broken out in several cities across the U.S. This tells me already that Americans are not taking this quite easy. And I feel for them. I feel like I have lost faith not just in our government, but for my country. We created this mess together and we have to deal with the consequences. Maybe in 2020 we'll get a better candidate? I don't know. I still can't get over the fact that Trump is our next president. This is a man who ridiculed women, muslims, african americans, mexicans, the disabled, his opponent, and other politicians. How could I respect a man that mocks many groups of people in this country? Especially when he mocked a disabled man and women. I try not to let things like this get under my skin but when someone that is running for president is mocking someone with a physical disability, I lose all respect for that candidate. I have a brother with autism. It's not easy growing up with a brother that has a cognitive disability. Some people have no idea what people with mental and physical disabilities have to go through. I can never respect a man that would do such a thing. I can't stand the fact that women have a much harder time to live in America. Women are human beings too and deserve equal treatment. Men should not be the superior ones of society. Only someone, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, that is capable of performing the tasks of leadership should take control. Not an immature billionaire with a sketchy history of discrimination and misogyny.
All I can say about this election is that it was a complete joke from the very beginning. Hillary Clinton wasn't a good candidate either, which made the entire presidential race a disaster. I personally wanted Bernie Sanders to win the candidacy. But since he was cheated out by Clinton in the primaries,once again, I lost hope. But then two underdogs out of nowhere came along in the presidential race, Gary Johnson and Jill Stein. How come they didn't have a voice? Because the Democratic and Republican Parties are way too big to let any other party have a say. If Democrats and Republicans are so bad, then why do we keep voting for them? Does it ever dawn on us that maybe a third party candidate might actually know what to do and how to fix the country? Maybe in the next election, let's look away from the two dominant parties and look at the ones that can't find their spotlight. It doesn't hurt to get out of our comfort zone. Right now, I'm embarrassed that this is the best America can do. There are plenty of intelligent, thoughtful, dedicated and committed people in this country that could help us get in the right direction. It's up to us America. We can't continue this mess no longer. Someday, we'll look back at what we've done and regret everything.
Now, I'll be completely honest with myself, I didn't vote in this election. And I know that a lot of people don't want to hear someone's opinions if they didn't vote. I personally think that people have it all backwards. Think about it. If you believe that this candidate will do an amazing job and will totally vote for them, fine. But what if this person does a disappointing job in office? What do you say then? Do you regret voting for this person? Or will you just complain about every bad thing he or she has done? I feel like if you voted for this person, you shouldn't complain. You wanted Donald Trump in office, you got him in office. Once he starts doing things he doesn't want you to, what's the reason to complain? I didn't vote for anyone this election because I believed neither one of the candidates were fit to be president. So next time someone tells you to shut up because you didn't vote, just know that you weren't involved in this embarrassing mess.
