With Donald Trump's victory Tuesday, Americans will find that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.
Naturally, Karl Marx can be credited with that phrase.
We've had plenty of tragedy in our history, now comes the travesty.
For those who longed for the tragic days of George W. Bush, you now get to experience them anew, on steroids.
You want more wars, you got 'em.
You want a terrible economy, you got it.
You want to be known as a former great nation, you got it.
Much will be written about this election. It'll make no difference.
Americans wanted an unqualified, sexist and racist, white man to run this country.
And, that's what we'll get.
The rational world is appalled. Markets are tanking.
On Nov. 8, 2016, America no longer became a beacon of hope to the oppressed of the world.
With Trump in charge, we are now the oppressors.
The idea of "American Exceptionalism" is officially over.
We chose to make America worse again.
Of course, there will be no wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
The Canadians may consider a wall to keep Americans out of their country.
Health care will only be for the rich. Social Security will be privatized. Forget about Medicare or Medicaid.
Corporations will be rewarded even more when they send jobs overseas.
We can burn more coal until the cows come home.
Women will lose whatever gains they made in the last 50 years.
The angry, white man won.
God Bless America.
We'll need it.
