Re: Speculation on what to expect now
Okay, arguments aside. And, believe me, I respect everyone's right here to argue to the death! Seriously.
Anyway ... Trump said he would block any further immigration of Syrians. He will track down illegals and get rid of them. (Good luck with that!) And he will rescind the Affordable Care Act (thank GOD for the middle class who carry the burden!). I'm speaking as an Independent here. And I DO NOT vote a party ticket, nor did I in this election. So from my perspective, that is what I imagine Trump will do in his first 100 days.
Still ... this evening we have anti-Trump rallies in the streets of major cities. This election wasn't about Hillary's "dishonesty" or Trump's "narcissism." This election is about a major - and very angry - schism that has occurred in our country. Right now, about 5,000 protesters are outside Trump Tower in NYC.
So what I expect? More polarization. And THAT is why I've been so damn confused, depressed, and sorrowful today.
I refuse to make anyone a priority in my life who considers me nothing more than an option.
