Brace yourself America, we are headed for turbulent times. We have entered the abyss. We are in uncharted territory. Turmoil awaits us. The future looks downright bleak. The son of a former Klansmen is the President of this country and the leader of the free world.

We now have a misogynist, racist and dangerous demagogue as the Commander-in-Chief. The world will follow suit. Expect that planet earth will become an even meaner, lesser and exponentially more brutal place. If you somehow believe that a bigoted billionaire with a penchant for creative destruction is the answer to what ails us then you are sadly mistaken. Time will prove you dead wrong.

The downward spiral of the global economy is fast approaching. Say adieu to your 401K’s, your investments and your nest eggs. The prosperity that America and the West have enjoyed for so long will be a thing of the past.

By the way, Mother Nature will be calling upon us pretty soon as well and she is pissed. It is high time to pay for the ecological destruction this rapacious system has wrought. It does not matter in the least bit that Trump and his ilk deny the existence of Global Warming and decry it as a hoax conjured up by the Chinese. The veil of this ignorance will soon be forcibly torn away. Anticipate storms, earthquakes, calamities and natural disasters of magnitudes we have never seen before. For the record, I am by no means trying to suggest this is Trump’s fault but how can you cope with a problem if you do not believe it exists.

While our much-vaunted free press has left a lot to be desired, and is one of the main reasons we are in this situation in the first place, it will soon become an even more obedient lapdog to the state and his highness Donald J. Trump. Prepare for shitloads of propaganda to be coming down the pipeline. This will be Orwell’s 1984 made real.

Trump is an All-American Hitler – a vindictive, shallow, megalomaniac of our very own creation. Those that oppose him and stand in his way; i.e. immigrants, Latinos, Muslims, African-Americans, the LGBT community, women and independent journalists will feel the full weight of his anger swiftly and disproportionately.

Bid farewell to hope, light, dignity and decency, we have stumbled into Trumpland. We will NOT recover. The American Experiment is over. Tyranny is at hand. God help us.

    Consider joining the coming Leftist Revolution. The establishment of Schumer and Esapillat can’t help us. We need revolution.

      Tell me more about the Leftist movement? Big ideas, no actual policies, game plan or timeline. Just, “revolution”. I look to Cuba, Venezuela, etc. and don’t want that to be our reality either.
