Taking the long view of these United State shows unity has not been our strong suit. We’ve had our disagreements when one party or another has taken to the slinging of mud. Our hate for each other is just the way things are. Our hate for immigrants is the norm and not the exception.
Our hate for anything different has always been the norm and not the exception. Usually the other side will take the back seat when the one side wins. That’s been our precarious precipice for over two hundred years.
Today is no different than yesterday.
Change is only brought about by voting and protests.
Change has been fought. Many have died.
Society and technology may change but humans do not. We are tribal and we are selfish. Though once in awhile we’ll do what’s right.
I believe with the outside influences such as multinational corporations and is some way Russia, along with other countries, will keep us more off balance than usual. I don’t blame Russia since I believe they are much like us with their internal struggles and a leader who may still wish to win the Cold War.
The best way to affect change in our country is the old tried and true VOTE. It’s the numbers. Overwhelming number of voters will override those who wish to manipulate the outcome.
We must continue to make our country a more perfect union.
We can do it despite the set backs.

Our idealized past was made to show the world how wonderful we were as opposed to the Soviet Union. It was all advertising and we’ve come to believe it. Let’s look at our history and know the truth.
