How have you dealt with the US Elections in the past month?
I know many people have chosen to avoid talking about it, and if you wish, you may avoid participation in this thread.
And yeah, I’ve taken an avoidant strategy too. I was so optimistic about the election on November 8th, and it was such a disappointment. Some people have chosen to rise up and try to do something about it. But angry activism doesn’t really work for me; I’m more of a sad activist. It sure is a pity that California is the state with the highest number and fraction of immigrants, and yet we have no real power because of a system that won’t change any time soon.
To be honest, I haven’t really avoided the topic at all. Around here we’ve been talking about the election pretty much non-stop. Mostly we alternate between talking about how awful Trump is, with making light of how ridiculously awful Trump is. But I’ve largely avoided talking about the election here, on the internet, and I suppose the other bloggers have chosen the same.
