I voted GREEN. I have been alienated from the Democratic Party's neoliberal and neoconservative alignments, but I never anticipated Hillary Clinton would lose the election.
I'm hopeful Trump will de-escalate relations with Russia, but that is the only thing I'm hopeful about.
In addition to my concern about his willingness to eliminate financial regulation, I worry that Trump will be only too happy to allow heedless resource extraction and environmental pollution.
I worry about the rise in fascistic, xenophobic tendencies in the wake of this overwhelming Trump victory.
Will police violence rise in the wake of a Trump presidency given the lack of respect afforded by Trump to due process and habeas corpus?
I can only hope, as can we all, that Trump rises above his rhetoric.
