“Anyone who thinks my story is anywhere near over is sadly mistaken.”

Donald J. Trump

Unfortunately I believe Mr. Trump is right. It looks like there is only one man/woman standing between him and presidency. That alone is a dire sign of American politics. Not being satisfied with the current crop of politicians and their actions has led to this strange situation, where not being like the current establishment of party politicians appears to be sufficient to qualify as president of the United States.

Mr. Trump’s controversial remarks on aliens, Muslims, women, and the lack of specific policies have not deterred his supporters. What does that tell us?

“Make America Great Again” is the slogan of his campaign. I think America is already great, if you value things other than just money.

Maybe not just our leaders need to change, but also us, the people.

Hopefully we will end up with a candidate that genuinely cares about the well being of people more than profit, growth, and revenues. America is not a corporation. Life is not a business.
