I know a few Englishmen and Englishwomen.  Some of my best friends are English!  :silly:
Trump does not represent the will of the people.  If we really wanted to respect the decision of "the people," then Clinton would be the president-elect, not Trump, for the simple reason that she won the popular vote.

14/16 - missed semicolon and misread "dosed" - that I'll blame on my glasses, thank you very much!

15/16 but I am too closed-minded to accept that it should be close-minded.

Yeah, i missed that one as well. I didn't do a 15, like you, but I was fairly close.

That's where I landed too!
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

16/16.  It's unfortunate language skills don't count for Jack for college entrance evaluations.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Shouldn't have missed even one.  In grad school even a simple grammatical mistake was often a letter grade deduction.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton
