This 2016 Presidential Race Will Have Catastrophic Results For Future American Politics


2016 has brought us just about everything we didn't expect, or hope for. In June, a businessman with no political experience whatsoever announced he was running for President, and would evidently wipe out Republicans that have been in the game all their life. Not to mention the name-calling, consisting of Marco Rubio saying Trump has "small hands", and Trump quickly refuting the claim by stating he is "well endowed", all on national television. Needless to say, it wasn't the best of years for the GOP, however of  with the turmoil and ridicule Republicans faced having their best wiped out and mocked ... and just about everything and anything else you could imagine, the Democrats faced their own problem; a supposedly corrupt race that would enrage Bernie Sanders supporters with the idea that Democratic insiders rigged the vote to propel Hillary Clinton to the front. Now, the country faces a choice of two candidates that apparently no one wanted in the first place.

Is It The Beginning Of The End?
Both parties will tell you that if the other gets elected, it’s all over. Democrats say if Trump wins, the country will spiral into the greatest economy collapse of all time … just look at all the businesses of his that have gone bankrupt -- is the country next? Yet, Trump supporters will quickly refute the claim by saying running a business and a country are two completely separate jobs, and what the country needs is a strong leader who will get the job done. On the other side, Republicans say if Hillary Clinton wins we will ultimately wind up in World War 3 with Russia, exchanging nuclear missiles until everyone is blown to pieces. Yet, Clinton supporters will, too, quickly refute this claim by pointing out how as a Senator, Clinton played a key role in taking down Osama Bin Laden, and what we need is someone with “experience”...

Sound familiar? That’s because this type of rhetoric has been used all too often to defend two evils, and even the most hardcore of supporters will admit it; this election, the country is voting for the lesser of two evils.

But where does that leave us, the people? Let’s just say that neither candidate being elected ends up with the world being blown to bits, or people carrying wagons full of money to buy milk. Let’s presume that for the next four, or eight, years that whoever gets elected … nothing changes. While that’s possible, unfortunately, it really isn’t. While the country or the world may hold together for another couple years, our ideology about politics will forever be ruined. It will forever be the battle between Good and Evil, when there is no good. It will forever be expected to have candidates indulge in a verbal scrimmage while debating how to fix world hunger, or what steps they’ll take to fixing the struggling. Sure, the argument that politics have always been vicious mudslinging campaigns is absolutely true, however, the sentiment that has changed is the reason for those verbal assaults, the all out warfare in debates, and the ultimate victory by a candidate. Before, the goal of the people was to elect a President they truly believed would be the best choice for America. Now, the reason we’re electing our next President is to spit in the other sides face, mocking them as we waggle our hands on our heads yelling “I win! I win! You lose!”.

If you stop someone before they vote and ask them why they’re voting for whoever they’re voting for, the most common answer you’ll get is because the other party's candidate would ruin the country. The #NeverTrump phenomena along with the #HillaryForPrison prove this theory, and show just how much of a dive our values in politics have taken. Whatever happened to the days of penciling in who you believe is will help America the most? Now, we pencil in who we want in order to have the opportunity to tell our political nemesis they lose … but we forget all about the future. We forget all about the prospect of the future.

This election will have dire consequences no matter who is elected because of the way it was carried out. Both parties have numerously claimed “the system” is rigged, the very system that holds our country together through the toughest of times. We raise our children to hate 50% of the population automatically because of the color they side with; blue or red. We don’t care about their views, we only care if they’re an elephant or a donkey. If you believe this is untrue, just take a look at what’s happening in politics this very moment! Democrats are supporting a candidate who is more Republican than the Republican nominee, and Republicans are supporting a candidate who is more Democrat than the Democrat nominee! The values and views of the candidates garner absolutely no meaning, no value, and no importance to voters. What matters is getting their party into office, having their colors run through the White House. It’s almost like a gang war brought to the most important decision our country faces every four years.

With that, I leave you with a final thought. It’s two days before the election; either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton will be elected -- there is absolutely no way to avoid that conclusion to this year long haul that has left both parties in total chaos. However, as the final results creep closer and closer, citizens anxiety have brought us closer to a civil war. May it be verbal and online, or soon to be in person and hand-to-hand … only time can tell. What is important to remember is that unless we come together as a nation and understand our democracy is much more important than our selfish needs to win an imaginary race between two political figureheads. It’s about time we change the way we live, the way we interact with politics. Since the dawn of time, men have fought viciously to secure positions in power and government, but have we not as people come farther than “the dawn of times”? As Americans, we pride ourselves in regard to “becoming more human”, in a sense that we are learning to interact with each other in a more human, kinder way.

So, why do we act in politics as we did thousands of years ago?
