Political Decisions are ACTIONS
Political decisions ARE actions. People who voted for a racist, misogynist, xenophobic, narcissist liar and con man have demonstrated by their actions where their priorities lie. They have demonstrated, by the action of voting, they consider that racism, xenophobia, homophobia, ignorance and blatant denial of facts are perfectly acceptable, as long as they're personally okay (not that they will be, in reality - as some of them may now be starting to realize). They've said, with their vote, that they don't care about facts, they don't care about anyone who isn't just like them, and that everyone else can just go fuck off and die. To me, that's more than sufficient basis for judging that even if their concerns are worth considering when debating public policy, they're not people I want as friends.
