I woke up this morning in something of a state of shock. It dawned on me that I’ve been pissed off at this guy and his policies ever since he cheated his way into office in 2000. Two wars, the erosion of civil liberties, spying on citizens without warrants, intercepting everyone’s emails and phone calls, cronyism and political hatchet-jobs, one US city left to drown and the word “homeland” as part of the American lexicon, etc.
All of it was so horrifying to me. The cheerleaders kept saying “he’s keeping us safe” and for the life of me I never saw it. All I saw was this guy running our country into the ground. I never rooted for him to fail, because when he goes down, we all go down, but goddamn if he didn’t find a way to piss me off with his policies EVERY.FUCKING.DAY. There were times when I was literally fatigued from being outraged by this administration.
As I look around at the results of his disastrous presidency, I still can’t believe we let this happen. Our economy is in the shitter, our military is overextended, people still think “teh ghey” is a major issue, our schools churn out ignoramuses because lessons are dumbed down so that everyone can pass, and we have a prison in Cuba that defies every legal principle this country was founded on.
Now it’s over.
God Bless America.
Good Luck, Barry!
