As I'm writing this, Donald Trump was announced as President-Elect last night. First and foremost, it's no secret that I am not a supporter of Hillary or Trump. I've been pretty vocal about my support for third party candidate Jill Stein, on Twitter.
I have some thoughts. I'm going to try to put them down into words. I hope I do a good job.
The next four years might be hell
For the next four years, we Americans will have a Republican President, House of Representatives, and Senate. This could be disastrous in numerous ways. Donald Trump is a climate change denier. This has dire consequences not just for Americans, but the entire world. Donald Trump has also vowed to get rid of Obama-care (also known as the Affordable Care Act). This would be disastrous by getting rid of access to health-care for thousands or millions. Possibly causing people to die because they couldn't get access to health-care.
If Donald Trump is able to appoint two Supreme Court Justices before 2018, we will have to live with the consequences of a conservative Supreme Court possibly for decades.
But it might not be hell
Now, all of that sounds bad. One thing to remember is that not all Republicans support Donald Trump. It's too early to say what's going to happen. None of us have the power to see what happens in the future.
Am I nervous?
Yes, of course. On one hand we avoided war with Russia by not electing Hillary. Unfortunately, a racist and sexist modern version of Hitler got elected. It's pretty amazing that Trump was even ELIGIBLE to be President, considering he goes to court later this month for fraud allegations linked to Trump University.
Don't lose hope America. We need to come together and show Trump and the Republican-controlled House and Senate that we will not tolerate hate. We will not tolerate anything that makes America fall further behind other First-World countries. We also need to make sure that we reform our Election system. It's time to get rid of the Electoral College.
