28. My personal silver lining is that I won't live much longer.

Oct 2020

I found that out in Aug 2016. So I had that to deal with and I also had been saying for 1 year that tRump would win (I knew Americans are stupid, gullible and have the memory of a rock when it comes to politics). After the fucking moron won I said something I never said before in my life. "I don't feel safe anymore". I don't mind dying (really) especially now that my little dog and my dad died too. I am almost relieved that I won't have to live in a country that has such stupid, hate filled people voting for hateful idiots and greedy, treasonous enablers in all levels of our govt.

But...as long as I can do something to stop them I will. I will make phone calls to all GOP senators again and again, try to go to another protest, the Oct 17 Womens March over the new SCOTUS pick, and encourage others to VOTE! As a final activist statement I will go to DC (if I physically and financially can) if the fucking moron steals the election and I will not leave until he is dragged out of the W House. I will fight since I do love my country and am patriotic. Then I can die with pride and self respect.
