isillusion: to free from or deprive of belief or idealism
As in: I am feeling extremely disillusioned with SC politics and our state's constituency today. Sheheen ran a great race in this red state of ours. At best I feel Haley will be ineffective and nothing will change; at worst, I fear she will cut basic services to the bone and education, social services, environment, the working poor, you name it will suffer terribly...
I am also super-sad about the Penny Tax not being passed- I dearly hope another way is found to keep our bus system running- even if you don't depend on the buses, there are plenty of working poor people that do.
Brad Warthen, SC political pundit and blogger, summed up thoughts on the SC election eloquently here.
