If there's one thing this election has shown me it is that something needs to be done about Fox News and Limbaugh and co. I just don't know what can be done. It needs to be done to the rest of the media as well as they keep following Fox's lead.
It scares me that this is how Nazi Germany started.
I'm an optimist normally. I believe mankind is headed in the right direction and is capable of amazing things. There are a small number of people that are willing to manipulate the public to increase their own power: Republicans, preachers, corporate execs. This election shows that those people can get people to hurt themselves with enough lying.
Today is the first time in my life I am actually ashamed to be an American.
I should amend this.
We've gotten through worse. Little that is done in the next for years is irreversable. Hell, in 2 years we can put in a Democratic congress. This is by no means the end, it is simply sad to see so much of America believing the lies. It also means democracy can never resst, but we knew this. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
