Well said @Potemkin .
Trump did not create our problems. Our problems created Trump.
Instead of 'Trump bashing ', we should be looking at what we did that resulted in his election.
Did we forget that people want a say in what happens in their communities?
Did we decide people were stupid and needed to be forced to do the right thing?
Did we decide 'our morality ' was the only morality?
Did we become so obsessed with our own righteousness, that we forgot what Democracy is?
Did we decide what is right for LA, is also right for Podunk, USA?
Did we decide the federal government should control everything because we prefer government by lobbyists?
Trump was elected because a lot of people failed to take a long term view of their actions.
Simply asking ourselves, "If I support this, what is the possible result 20 years from now? 50 years?"
Instead of soul searching, I see an insistence on intensifying the very things that got him elected, because "stupid racist people " elected him. "We just need to try harder in convincing them how stupid and racist they are."
I dream of the United Citystates of Earth, where each Citystate has a standardized border such as one whole degree of Latitude by one whole degree of Longitude.
