Is The Election An Indicator of Change?

I don’t remember where I heard it, or maybe read it. But as a result of Trump winning the election, the accusation was leveled: People are afraid of a changing America.

Since most of the change we have seen over the last eight years has been forced by government–a top-down change–this election may actually show that people haven’t changed the way some people would like America to have changed.

For example, gay marriage was/is illegal in most states because when placed on the ballot, it was rejected by popular vote. The only reason this changed, is because Federal government overstepped its bounds and forced states to change; the Supreme Court should have refused to take the case.

So, I ask again. Has America really changed?
