Desperately hoping for salvation. Today the U.S. Presidential race has begun to take on tones of Germany in the 1920’s. We have a “leader” pitting “us” against entire races, blaming them for “our” problems. We have a “leader” who encourages violence, hate, and segregation. We have a “leader” who says our country is broken, and he is the only one who can fix it! We have a “leader” who wants to deport people of a race that is becoming the new majority. All of these ideas have been tried and tested. They have failed miserably, taking many, many lives along the way. These fear tactics have been used throughout history to keep people in submission. This behavior and treatment of fellow humans has only proven disastrous in the past. However, the healthy reception of these ideas among many U.S. citizens is what the true concern should be. I have faith that we will not elect such a tyrant to office, yet the ugly underbelly of the U.S has shown it’s face. We can see that racism, segregation, hate, and bigotry are alive and well here in the U.S., and that is what should be truly worrisome" - Johnie Thornton 2016.
