Is mad as hell, and not going to take it anymore. I am more like "in despair as hell." Americans are stupid, dumb sheep. And the Republicans are mendacious, dangerous assholes, who play to nothing but fear, xenophobia, and white priviledge. In some respects, I understand why people respond to fear-mongering, because it is our most visceral experience. Fear turns us into animals, reading to fight, or run away. These are not constructive emotions when your life is not in danger, but it probably pays in the long run to be more cautious than not. The danger is that an excess of fear will lead to paralysis or reaction. The Republicans, having decided their road to success consists in obstruction, have no qualms about provoking the American people into a spiral of fear and hate.
