Duly Noted: What has happened to us?


duly: hillary-vs-trumpWe have elected a man whose entire platform was based on hate, fear mongering, twisted misogyny, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and garden-variety thuggery.

We traded the politics of a progressive, hopeful future away to a man who told us, every day what he was about. He told us he wanted to take this country back to a time where it worked for only the whitest and richest and male-est and Christian-est among us. To Make America Great Again.

We traded true blue for stop sign red.

We traded Yes We Can for No YOU Can’t.

We traded hope for hopeless.

We traded a Bridge to the Future to a Wall For Our Neighbors.

We traded progress for diminishment.

We traded an inclusive tomorrow for an exclusionary yesterday.

We traded experience for naiveté.

We traded intelligence for ignorance.

We traded tolerance for intolerance.

We traded collaboration for isolationism.

We traded innovation for stagnation.

We traded the First Woman for a Woman Hater.

We traded stability for chaos.

We traded wisdom for insanity.

We traded optimism for cynicism.

We traded growth for contraction.

We traded enlightenment for bewilderment.

We traded construction for destruction.

We traded community for xenophobia.

We traded our futures for the past.

We traded a thirst for knowledge for a hunger for blood.

We traded an olive branch for an eye-for-an-eye.

We traded intellectualism for foolishness.

We traded economic security for financial uncertainty.

We traded public service for self-serving.

We traded compromise for inflexibility.

We traded Nobel Prize winners for the KKK.

We traded pride for pridefulness.

We traded our country for a slogan.
