    The U.S.A. chose wrong by electing a guy who doesn’t believe in the system he will be leading. He thinks it’s okay to cheat the government and not pay taxes, take adavantage of public programs, etc. To get there he spoke to people’s fears and he did it just to get what he wanted, it was means to an end. He didn’t think of the people, he thought of himself and manipulated them. And yes, as a result there is a lot of anger, hate and fear. Many of the things that have been achieved through decades of suffering could be undone. But not everything is lost. You will have a chance to take the Senate and the Congress away from Republicans if they fail their people and the world because Trump might prove to be just that, a gobal threat.

    Trump has appointed Reince Priebus, the RNC chairman, as Chief of Staff and Steve Bannon, the owner/editor of the “alt-right”–read white supremist–news site Breitbart as “Counselor”.

    The first is pure “Establishment.” (So much for “draining the swamp.”)

    The second is an anti-Semetic, anti-black, anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-anything cheerleader.

    There are two books–Sinclair Lewis’ IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE–well, it has.

    The second is Philip Roth’s THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA–well, it’s occurred.
