The results of the elections have taken over our lives globally. A lot of memes came out of it (Look above). Every group chat, even the ones where the members haven’t read their messages in over a year, is talking about it. Then there’s the Facebook stuff, that I haven’t seen because I’m too lazy to log into Facebook, etc. But one good thing that came out of it is that I watched the news for the first and last time in my life without falling asleep or jumping off a building. And a lot of people my age have started taking more interest in politics.
It doesn’t really help Don’s case that there so many similarities between his policies and Hitler’s. But honestly, that was the case with almost every candidate this year. And really, it’s not as if most politicians we’ve had since the inception of government have been much different; Donald’s just more open about it.
But what I think is going on with Americans is like when you’re at a public function and that one couple starts arguing and everyone goes quiet and listens then one of them says, “I slept with your grandfather! I never love you anyway.” And then one of them comes up to you and asks you what you think while everyone watches you. Leave us alone! We don’t know what you’re going through. We only catch glimpses.
It also seem like things look worse in the moment than in hindsight, and hopefully that’s the case here. But we’re flexible, I guess. More importantly, the president alone doesn’t have much power to start with, it’s not a monarchy/dictatorship. And Trump only needs to be in office for 2 years. Or he might be assassinated (Don’t get ideas). In closing, let’s take advice from one of Kylie Minogue’s songs: It’s not the end of the world. Although the song was called “Time Bomb”, which…yeah.
