Today America heads to the polls to cast a vote for a political figure who has run a fairly decent campaign, but are doubted as to their abilities to affect change in the area’s they are running in. The future of America rests on this day. Inspired by this historical day i decided to present my digital photo-graphical work entitled “American ideals”.

The reality of presidential terms are the fact that every first term of a newly elected president is actually the final works of the former president. Like the withdrawal from a drug the reality of the presidents current actions are not apparent until his second term or the next presidents term.. For example Bill clinton balanced the budget and George w. Bushs first year went smooth, but in his second term he almost collapsed the country. Barack Obamas first year was tumultuous due to Bush’s recklessness but Obama managed to get everything under control allowing for Donald Trump to have a stable first term, but what will Donald Trumps actions bring about?
For those who are excited about being president after Donald Trump i say curb your enthusiasm, because you may inherit the collapse of the great american experiment. History has shown us that the republicans break the bank and the Democrats attempt to fix it. As the national debt soars under trump to 21 trillion, as trump exports americas emergency oil reserves the options for future financial stability and a balanced budget are becoming an imaginary fantasy instead of an attainable reality
The future of america is now at stake as the corrupt kings of corporations now have control of the american government. As the battle between money and morality reaches its peak we face an existential crisis. Do we as americans allow capitalism to run so rampant that human life is of no consequences? As we see more mass shootings, children taken from immigrant parents fleeing from death, puerto rican death numbers from hurricane maria watered down, police involved murders. All these things being ignored to protect the advancement of capitalism and protect the image of money and those who have it.
Or…do we humble ourselves in the face of an uncertain future? Do we retract from the world and begin to focus on america and the messege we send to other nations in regards to what we desire from the world, because in the end america holds the world within her borders. With UNITY the american people can guide and create the world as they see fit. The hate and division keeps america from recognizing its true purpose and potential. With love, understanding and wisdom america could make the world see a reality only dreamed by those who seek freedom. The future is coming don’t get distracted from preparing for it.

America the great becon of hope and inspiration…. how did we ever sell those tickets??
A country built on the blood of peaceful natives.. A land where excess and greed is glorified and poverty is seen as an undesired blight caused by ones own actions not systemic gentrification.
Homelessness the unfortunate scourge plauging the have nots. As mental institutions and shelters close down across the country more men and women in need of family and community support are thrusted into the streets. Forced to find away where there is none. Hoping for the grace of a passer by to drop a dollar or change.
As the shadow of the valley of debt widens and the gap between the haves and have nots grows. The past options of resolutions slowly become one option… war.. For centuries America has not defined its values. The rule was whites only which isn’t a value but rather a privilege as we get closer to civil eruption. The reality is America must define its values before immigration or a foreign nation defines it for them.
