This is what I might want to say to members of Anglican Church of North America

My understanding is that Anglican Church of North America is made up of more conservative churches that have broken away from American Episcopal Church in part because of the Episcopal Church's more liberal attitude toward gay people. It's more aligned with the Anglican Churches of Nigeria.

Overpopulation, discrimination against women and gay people may lead to the ruin of many countries in the world, like Nigeria where population is expected to surpass the US within a few decades; Nigeria having far less land area than US. Bigotry, famine and war could make much of the world like Syria. People are talking about the situation in Syria as partially related to climate change and drought. An increasingly crowded world. Hope it doesn't get that bad, but who knows.

Other parts of the world could still flourish but increasingly face; like in Europe, the refugee dilemma with overwhelming numbers of people knocking on the door.

Hillary Clinton is like ordinary people

People expect our presidential candidates to be perfect and folks continue to do things like oppose oil pipelines while still driving cars using oil. Hillary Clinton isn't perfect either. She uses money from corporate sources, like ordinary people pulling up to the gas pump. No candidate is perfect, not even Jill Stein (Green Party candidate). If we want to see change in this world, it's really up to us. We need to do things like driving less, becoming more independent of mainstream corporate culture; including the oil companies. We need to be building better communities from the ground up. I think we can work with Hillery Clinton a lot better than if "strong arm, mean spirited" Republicans take over all branches of government, including the Supreme Court. It's up to us to participate in the changes we need. No politician can do it for us, but some politicians can make it a lot more difficult.
