How did we end up here

It’s not even so much that an ignoramus with clearly no interest in foreign or domestic policy gets elected (because even though the GOP has managed to sweep both the house and the senate, you’d hope there’s still enough checks/balances in government).

It’s more the fact that there’s still so many bigots / xenophobes / racists / sexists in the country that depresses the hell out of me.

Did we just move back 50 years as a nation? What will happen to the rights of women, gays, minorities? What will happen to the economy? What will happen to democracy? Or is democracy completely overrated?
