The impact of our not so well thought out choices!
When educated voting matters!
A Kakistocracy is defined as a country ruled by the most unqualified and unprincipled in a country. America, in its folly, voted for and inaugurated into office, one of the most unqualified and unprincipled men to have walked through the doors of the White House. We have seen a country that should be great, become a mockery to many around the world. We have seen divisiveness in leadership. A lack of understanding of what it takes to ensure greatness. So, the question begs itself, does the present representative of the United States of America intend to make America great, or is the plan for him to become greater with the complete and utter disregard for the damage he has caused and will continue to cause the American people?
“While many have refused to go to the voting booths, and many who have gone seems to have voted for the foolery that seems to be a mainstay in American life, we have seen the real impact of those choices.”
While so many have chosen to close a blind eye to all the negative that came from the current president's campaign, the negativity that he has spewed in his various tweets, in his interviews, and even from the many stages on which he has been asked to speak, the world looks on in complete disgust. The idea of “Making America Great” or better yet Ensuring America’s Greatness should have been the ideal for any American who understands the history of this country, what we have seen is a complete disregard for the things that have made America great to begin with, its people. It does not take a rocket scientist to realize that the greatness that America has touted for so many decades, did not come from any one person, but from the melting pot of immigrants and natives who have helped to build this country to where it was before 2016, and has continued to try to be to this day. One thing is sure, America will never be the same.
As we sat back and watched so many people berated, whether they were women, veterans, children, or immigrants, what is clear is that we failed ourselves. There is a reason why the legal voting age is 18 years old. The hope is that at that age, the voter would be able to fully comprehend the responsibility that comes with the choices one makes at the voting booth. However, in seeing the folly of the Presidential election of 2016, and subsequent local and regional elections, it is very obvious that age does not guarantee common sense, or a true comprehension of the responsibility that comes along with voting or even in representing the people or a country for that matter.
While many have refused to go to the voting booths, and many who have gone seems to have voted for the foolery that seems to be a mainstay in American life, we have seen the real impact of those choices. The American people are losing jobs by the hundreds, there have been many government shut downs, the resignations at the government level at a far quicker rate and speed than appointments, and even more telling, business deals that have very little to do with ensuring the greatness of the American people and so much more to do with ensuring that the coiffures of the Trump family gets filled. So while we get distracted with the debate about whether or not Mexico or the American people will fund the building of "the wall," how much is the Trump family benefitting from the chaos in America?
