I am an American. I am an American rapidly losing faith. It all happened in three short weeks. Americans were exposed to the ugly factory creation of sausage, glimpsing the utter decadence and tone deaf carnality of our political gut processing.

Trump is very much like those dead white guys as Common Core creators like to call them. First, he is a regular guy (albeit a Billionaire) whom has a desire to make this country great (again) and is dedicated to making the changes to push that aim forward. He didn't have to run for president and take the enormous public razzing. He's rich beyond any of our imaginations, which means, if he didn't love America, he could move anywhere in the world and live a wonde...
