Yeah, I pretty much agree with everything Teal has said. It was same old with Hillary (which gives you some kind of stability), or radical change with Trump, which probably will result in more violence, discrimination, racism, more corruption, the poor will become more poor, etc. and while most of us want change, we also want to avoid the pain that electing Trump is already bringing.
The hope is that people will awake after all this suffering. I am not sure about that, since the recession was hard on Americans and many lost their jobs and homes, and people still view others as separate from themselves to discriminate them and abuse them. Let's hope this is what they needed to awake. What is certain is that trump is the antithesis of love and maybe he will help people realize what they don't want to finally seek for unconditional love.
Right now, the condition of people's hearts (teal calls it shadow side) is very sad in my opinion. I was heart broken when trump won, since he is the embodiment of intolerance and racism. This choice showed me that trump is just the reflection of how people feel and think. As a society, we are becoming more radical, racist and materialistic.
