If you found yourself standing at the polls this week trying to make a decision between two people that you despise, you only have yourself to blame. It’s your fault. It’s my fault.
The idolization of selfish ambition has been glorified to the fullest extent in front of our very eyes. We allow politicians to tell us what to think and what to believe. Freedom? No this is isn’t about freedom; our government is a trillion dollar industry of legalized corruption and blatant manipulation, and has been for decades.
We, as a nation, are too easily appeased by empty promises and speeches filled with hollow content. Trump isn’t going to save us. Clinton wasn’t going to save us. Politicians and billionaires will never have our best interests in mind.

Throwing your hands up in disgust and returning to the Starbucks to buy your vanilla lattes should make everything better, right?
Ghandi’s quote didn’t say to “elect” the change you wish to see; it said to “be the change you wish to see.” Put down the stones and pick up some respect; for yourself and for your fellow Americans.
