November 8th.

As an unprecedented chapter of American history comes to its conclusion, a several month-long trek of tumultuous political strife among the policies and morality of this term's presidential candidates will do likewise. Amid this transition comes also the premiere of new leadership, which will likely entail quite a bit more than has been anticipated to occur subsequent to its reception. The hysteria which currently encompasses the American public has reached a point beyond our government's ability to regulate. Radical reactionary measures to the verdict of this election, in favor of either candidate, appear to bear the potential to, perhaps, achieve a plateau of significance and power to an extent greater than what the people of America have demonstrated prior to this current extremity.

As I felt similarly during the initial weeks of this presidential race, I remain skeptical of America's future. Recent events have inspired me to adopt a pessimistic manner of considering these current circumstances. This is due, in part, to the difficulty I find in trusting either candidate, Clinton or Trump, entirely. Considering, for example, that neither of the two proved capable of speaking upon their political proposals eloquently and without digression of topic during any of the three presidential debates, I must acknowledge my lack of confidence and trust in a structurally improved America being established by either of the two prevailing parties in nearing years.


  1. I really like how you described your true raw opinion of the election and our country's future. I agree as well, there are so many unknowns right now, and all of America is waiting to see what will happen.
