I'm disappointed in my country, FunnyJunk.
I am going to be completely honest here, and I hope it's well-received because my intent is to preach unity.
I am a registered democrat, and I tend to lean left in my political ideologies. I voted for Secretary Clinton a few short days ago, and I am displeased with the results of the election.
HOWEVER, I believe I am a reasonable person and I am willing to give President-Elect Trump his chance. He fulfilled every requirement that our nation set forth to become the President of the United States and he deserves a chance to improve the country in the ways that he sees fit.
This is not why I am disappointed in my country. I am not disappointed by the outcome of election. I am disappointed in the people's response. Not just this year but every four years.
Four and eight years ago, citizens in conservative states pushed to secede from the union because President Obama was elected into office. Liberals told them to shut the **** up. Now, liberals in California are pushing to secede from the union and don't understand why conservatives are telling them to shut the **** up.
Both sides have individuals (not everyone on both sides) who are extreme enough in their political opinions to the point where they become ignorant and hypocritical.
Rather than acting like reasonable individuals, both sides seem to believe that if their side does not win, then America is going to ****. I believe that's just not true. We should not be a nation of two parties, but a nation of one people.
This may be a moot point, but I think that democrats, republicans, and independents need to work together for the sake of the country. Partisanship has destroyed this country. This is why I am disappointed.
I wish Secretary Clinton had won the presidency, but she didn't. Now, I am willing to accept President-Elect Trump with open arms and give him an opportunity to Make America Great Again. And for the sake of the country and its people, I sincerely hope he does.
