the US election, and the rest of us

It’s patently unfair that I’m keeping an eye on poll numbers coming in for a country that is not mine, yet whatever it decides will affect the rest of us in our distant corners of the globe anyway.

I hope you have chosen wisely, my friends.

    Absolutely true. Even South Africa knows Trump as President will be detrimental to our exports.

      It sort of feels like everyone else except for half of the US knows he’d be detrimental! To everything, possibly. Oh well.

    This reminds me of the protest vote in the UK with the Brexit. It is a wonder what I am watching on T.V. Never held an elective office but trumps a politician that has held elective office.Maybe America is not ready for a Lady as President.

      I don’t think he has ever been elected to any sort of office before (but then again, American politics isn’t really something I know much about), and I don’t think it’s (just) about Clinton being a woman, but to me it feels like everything, everywhere is leaning far-right these days. We’re living in strange, strange times, it seems.
