Maybe. There is of course the election.
Not that I care much about it. I am tried of these politicians who lives a life far from us ordinary people who struggle every single day to feed our kids and then feed ourselves. It has been harder day per day – getting worse year per year. I miss the old days where we Danes met over a couple of beers down at the local bar. The old days where people biked home from work. A Denmark where you didn’t have to learn who lived next door to you even after you had shared street for 30 years. Just a quiet nod over the fence when you both left for work.
It was more safe back then.
There was a time where life in Denmark was simple. People didn’t expect that much. Just to go to school for 7 years (9 years today) and then start working resting asure that they could get early retirement once their body started to wear down due to the hard work. Back in the day where you even could get a beer to your lunch at work.
Of course that is destroyed now. Our country is being run by people who let the European Union run all over them. Down there the politicians seem to know even smaller about how people in Europe in general live.
If the ordinary tax-paying citizen in the United States feel how we Danes feel, they will select Trump. Or they will select Clinton showing that they really doesn’t care anymore. That they feel that politics are no more for ordinary citizens. That politics should be something for the elite because it really doesn’t matter anymore who run the country.
In Denmark we didn’t feel the difference from primeminister Løkke to Thorning and back to Løkke once more. It has only gone from bad to worse for ordinary Danes. An entire generation will face no education at all because they plan to transfer student grants to student loans. An education will demand a college fund in Denmark. Only the babies who are born this year will have the time to collect the money an education require. For teenagers it is too late. They will have to aim lower or focus on labor which demands no education at all and use all their spare time to look at the groups responsible for their demise instead.
It is no good future but it is the future young Danes face.
The question is. How do young Americans think about their future. Will they vote today or will they just let the elite run the country?
Will it be a special day today?
I don’t know.
