How is Donald Trump
any different from opinionated liberals and conservatives, who love to dismiss and ridicule the opposition? What we have in the way of a divided nation unable to compromise, is the same kind of self-righteous pride we see in Trump and Clinton. We deserve no better. Many thought we were getting a unifier in President Obama, but we don’t really want a unifier. We want our own way. Compromise, listening to the opposition, respecting the opposition, requires humility. There is no humility in our land.
And none of us question the history of USA warmongering, except the far left and libertarians. The rest of us are comfortable with physically-and-emotionally maimed vets, or vets returning home in body bags. Narcissistic pride, not humility. What’s to become of such a divided nation of self-righteous arrogants, who come together and agree on ONE thing — the USA being the Superpower Of The World, spending money we cannot afford on a vast military operation to prove our superiority, and police the whole world, minding everyone else’s business, while our infrastructure crumbles? Democracy on such a large scale as ours, does not work. Our nation is broken beyond repair. We need to be fifty nations, not fifty states of a narcissistic Empire.
