I was going to post about an eatery that we visited a few days ago. Unfortunately, without wifi my draft seems to have vanished into thin air. I will rewrite it very soon. Maybe that happening has allowed me to write about what's been heavy on my heart. If you've read my previous post that waxed political you know where I stood/stand regarding who was running for President. If not, the link are below.

|Ultimately...these shadows WILL travel!|
I knew (and said) from the beginning that Clinton WAS NOT the right person to go up against Trump. There are/were way too many skeletons in her closet. I have no doubt of her intelligence and commitment at the beginning of her career (after claiming to be a Goldwater Girl) to affect change. Somewhere along the line both she and her husband decided to go for (or were offered) the money. Selling out not only themselves but the people who still believed in them. Listening to others claim the title of Hillary Girl (and always being that way) seemed surreal. Were they not seeing what I was. I could write about this all day. Just thinking of how the DNC decided she was the candidate from the very beginning. All the palms that were greased, pats on the backs, and promises of a key position when she was President were for naught. Bernie will not be the Chair of the Finance Committee making sure money goes where it should and is needed. Instead Giuliani (an ardent Trump supporter) will get his position along with others that towed the Trump hate line.

I feel remembering lessons taught
As a group united
|Didn't know this was happening!|
Then you have the fact that he speaks about women in a degrading way (one instance that was caught on tape). He was old enough to know that what he was saying was not appropriate. Billy Bush was fired....and his run for president continued on. Knowing that if your wife, daughter, mother, cousin, or aunt is seen as attractive to him he feels he has carte blanche to grab their crotch. Oh, wait....if you've had children he is no longer attracted to you. So all women who have kiddos are excluded....right???? WAIT....if you are a girl who just became a teenager even you are not safe from him! What happens with the case against him for assaulting a teenage girl? Probably swept under the rug that now has mounds as tall as me.
|ALWAYS watch where you step|
AND what you left behind.
The Republican Party also wants to dismantle what Roosevelt put in place. Even though they receive (and WOULD NOT WILLINGLY GIVE UP) insurance paid for by taxpayers they think others do not deserve the right to free or reduced healthcare. In the next four years I will see friends and family lose their homes among other things because they have a family medical emergency. It is a given that some will face it. This person....elected on the 8th will seek to do so with Paul Ryan. There will be legislation that goes after public programs (including no mining in National Parks and was previously protected land) because Ryan has already put it out there....within the first 100 days Obamacare will be done for. Having this president elect pick Supreme Court Justices while the Republicans would not ALLOW President Obama to select one (who leaned to the right) simply because Obama picked him. My heart races thinking about the future of various laws they could enact or overturn. It should give your bones a chill. These all are things we fear. However, we are not willing to hang around and cross our fingers.
|Oh Boy do I love these people!|

example of realizing what is wrong
then taking action.
Last thing I will add (I know....it is running long but this is a big thing!) is the fact that he speaks of minorities as 'the blacks' and 'the mexicans'. Can't really do the Chinese phrasing justice because it lies in his inflection. His presidency has already given racists the freedom to hit someone who does not fall in line with their beliefs or race. Drove past many lawns that housed both a Trump sign and the confederate flag. That is not coincidental. These have been people who have always housed that hatred in their hearts and now have a president who allows them to speak their minds. That makes me fearful for my life, my bi-racial marriage, and my children. That does not sit well with me and shouldn't do so for anyone who is a free thinker and village minded. To hear that Germany and ISIS are celebrating his election says enough wouldn't you say?!?!
The damage is now done, and we have decided to do what we said we would. We are leaving the U.S. We were/are following up our words with action. By electing this man this country has shown that it does not want someone like me or my family here....and we listened. The journey will allow us to not be anchored or surrounded by hate. Being in a country that just elected a monster who has made us into a laughing stock around the world defies logic.. A country that elected a person with absolutely has no experience and cannot speak about the military, trade, healthcare, or plans of action with any modicum of knowledge or common sense. He simply makes faces and purses his lips. That IS NOT presidential. That is not telling it like it is....but instead reacting like someone in grade school. Though I feel bad about putting any kiddos in the same group as him hence insulting them.

In case any of you haven't heard.......today he appointed a climate denier!
