We can’t count on another chance

What was just said here is what I have been thinking since Tuesday evening except that I do not see any hope. The shouts of pleasure and relief whether verbal or written are too loud and too soon. The active destruction of the American Experiment, already in steady collapse for over fifty years, is, I’m afraid, already irreversible and the Trump regime is the destroyer. To barely defeat the election of a pedophile, racist, misogynist criminal to the highest political body in this nation is not something to celebrate. The fact that this disgusting and evil person was wildly supported by an incompetent, questionably elected, liar acting as president and supported by over 60% of Alabama’s white voters is not an indication of hope. The only salvation was the votes of the black community and particularly the female black community who would have been effectively reduced to subhuman status should Moore have been elected. Those people were facing the loss of all hope and managed to claw out a defeat for the actively racist and morally corrupt majority. This might have been less of a disaster at a precinct or even county level but that it occurred at the state level and to the US Senate is a clear sign of hope’s end.
