Ms. Martinchek, you need to take a vacation; your posts are becoming unhinged. You seem to think that the other 330 million Americans share your rage. They don't. Most Americans aren't even upset by current events. Some tens of millions, perhaps as many as fifty million, think that Mr. Trump is doing a great job and want him to continue. I'd guess that another hundred million could care less about anything political. That leaves something under 200 million as in some manner displeased. With luck, maybe half of those will actually go to the polls to vote.

You are way, way out of touch with the realities of American life. I urge you to take some time to familiarize yourself with the perceptions of other people. I won't be so cruel as to suggest that you expose yourself to the ugly thoughts of Mr. Trump's advocates. But try reading the political material in such mainstream publications as Time, Newsweek, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, or the Washington Post. Watch some of the Sunday morning political talk shows. For a foreign point of view, try The Economist, Reuters, Deutsche Welle in English, or the Japanese Asahi Shimbun.

It's a very large world out there and you appear to be living in a very dark corner.
