It's over and I'm mindbendingly horrified.

We lost everything!

From David Gerrold's Facebook feed:
Here's what we are going to lose:

The Supreme Court will be dominated by conservative justices for a generation.

Same-sex marriage will likely be outlawed on a national level.

A woman's right to choose will end.

Social Security will be cut. Or even eliminated.

The rich will get more tax breaks.

Medicare will be cut or repealed.

Obamacare will be repealed.

We are likely to head into a recession, possibly a depression.

There will be no action on climate change.

Our international relationships will be destroyed.
NATO will be crippled or disbanded.
Oil drilling, fracking, and pipelines will get tax benefits and govt subsidies.

We are likely to end up in a war with Iran.

We might see the end of the free press.

And, because this man believes in revenge, there may be mass incarcerations.

Because ...

There will be no grownups in the room.

The coup is complete. America is over.

Now you know what Germany felt like in 1932.
If you're not terrified, you haven't been paying attention.
How hard is it to jump ship – to move to a foreign country?

As a deaf, NF2 suffering, late middle aged woman who is unable to work full-time and, also, decidedly not wealthy I'm fucking doomed.
I don't know what to do now. I really don't.
