America votes for hope.

Unfortunately, that is the worst possible things they could get right now. Americans have had waaaay too much hope for the last decade or two. This is irrefutably proved by the fact that they have been steadily spending more compared to their earnings, and the difference has kept growing. Only the insane could do so without a very strong hope and faith in the future. (The fairly rapid population growth, for a rich country, points in the same direction.)

Americans are irredeemable optimists. That's their great strength and their weakness. In their heart, they cannot really doubt that they will reach their goals - even when they are marching in the opposite direction, as they have for some years now.
