It doesn't matter what the outcome of this election is, Trump will come out as a winner, and the democratic process and American people are the losers.

I can't count how many lies Trump has been telling people, and people believe them....

Even though the facts are out there, easy to find, at their finger tips...

But no, people have lost interests in knowing the truth...They'd rather turn to conspiracy theories or unfounded allegations....

A democratic society functions on faith in strangers - you have faith in police and judge to do their job; you have faith in government agencies to fairly enforce laws and regulations; you have faith in experts and intellectuals - from doctors to journalist to economists to scientists to accurately tell you what is actually going on in the world....

And what's more fundamental to a democratic society than its election process, and people's faith in it....???

There can't be a national debate when there is no common set of facts.

To be fair, this did not start with Trump, but he has been encouraging people to lose their faith : "We will never fix our rigged system by relying on the people who rigged it in the first place. I, alone, can fix it...."

Well, look at the birther movement he started ( btw, not Clinton, unless you are one of the guys of course); listen to what he said about Climate change as a hoax as recently as last December (Now he denied it, while many of his supporters still believe it...)...

Trump has become a champion of an alternative university - but the casualty is a common public space where we once debate our future....
