Not defeated — disgusted

As for the results in my own district, I'm not merely disappointed; I'm disgusted. This isn't about party politics, or my team losing; this is about humancy decency, ethics and principles. The principles of a majority of Sixth district voters appear to be greed and racism. A candidate, no matter how personally disgusting or devoid of decency, no matter how base or illegal his tactics, merely needs to promise to lower taxes and keep the Mexicans out in order to win. This race was a good example of how people let their conscience be cowed and overrun by corporate, amoral propagandists who are out to make a buck at the expense of the voters. My district has elected a racist, corrupt sophist over an able, virtuous war hero, and I am ashamed of them.
