The 2016 presidential election has taught me a few very obvious lessons. First, the media is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the wealthy political elites in this nation. Honest and fair reporting no longer exists within the journalist ranks.
Second, polls no longer matter. They are expensive, easily manipulated and their biases shroud the real truth.
Third, the influence of other countries and outside troublemakers (aka Russia and WikiLeaks) is concerning and will be here to stay to influence future elections.
Finally, as vulgar as president-elect Trump was, he is nothing more than a reflection of everyday Americans frustrated with a system that has let us down too many times.
America needs a purge of its current political establishment that is corrupt and devoid of values. (That includes Democrats and Republicans.) Donald Trump provides that much needed enema for America.
