Guess what? If Hillary wins, or if Trump wins — it’s not as big a deal as the people say it is.
Where Trump and his mouthpieces went wrong was turning this into an attack not on leftism, but on the establishment — which lumped real Republicans, ideological conservatives, hard working grass roots activists, and even noted military heroes into the same box as Hillary, Obama, Hollywood and the Harvard faculty.
We talk about the candidates’ flaws — but what of ours? Team sport ideology has compromised principles — as we accept certain actions that would have repulsed us before. Loyalty these days seems a replacement for principle. This operates on the analogy that people consider a political party a “home.” I don’t. My home is my actual home.
When JFK was assassinated? Yes, that was a BIG deal. When Nixon resigned? That was a BIG deal. But despite the horror and shock from those events — we all got on with life. We still went to work. We fed the kids. We mowed the lawn. So lighten up with the apocalyptical BS. No one is going to change your life as much as the people around you who love you and care about you.
