I couldn’t have put this better. Honestly, I feel like we’re doomed and I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel for any hope. I am terrified. I am a disabled person who lives in a HUD building, and who depends on foodstamps to be able to manage not to starve for half the month, and these are things this monster along with those that backed him will gleefully gut. Republicans have tried for a long time to go after Social Security in all its forms including SSD. This time they may actually succeed at gutting or taking away what I need to survive.
I don’t fully blame the protest votes — even with those votes we’d still have this monster as there wasn’t enough to make this the situation like before — but I will blame the DNC for rigging the primaries and choosing a bad candidate that couldn’t even get the college age female vote. What the DNC did was wrong, and they are as much to blame for what will happen in coming days as the following people. I will blame the people who continued to support a racist, sexist, homophobic douchebag who bragged about sexually assaulting women and mocked the disabled. I will blame those same people for continuing to do it even after he got backed by the KKK. And I will blame them for voting for him including the ones that naively did it cause “surely he’ll get impeached soon”.
