    It's time for the voting fraud, conspiracy theories and upset wins to riddle your social media timelines today.

    Will the House and Senate flip? Will Trump throw a tantrum, or will Democratic media cry afoul?

    Where do we go from here - and more importantly - what should Americans expect when they wake up Wednesday?

    I agree. I'm looking forward to seeing what acts of senselessness American citizens resort to.

    I will get up Wednesday morning and trudge off to work. Nothing much will have changed. Just different players in the non ending battle between the political parties.

    If a different political party gets into power there is probably going to be changes but they don’t happen instantly, honestly are there people here that really think things are going to change instantly?

    People think they should. There are people who want Roe v Wade whacked, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau decimated, and believe the caravans of people who believe America owes them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness should be admitted without question - and wanted it all yesterday.

    You mean socialist, yeah right on…

    [Red is traditionally associated with socialism and communism. The oldest symbol of socialism (and by extension communism) is the Red Flag, which dates back to the French Revolution in the 18th century and the revolutions of 1848.]

    Americans don't know, or understand, the importance of history. They just like to repeat it endlessly. Perhaps that is human nature... I did vote, with my conscience and knowledge of what is going on. I don't fall for the lies and disinformation.

    Tomorrow will bring another day, another challenge, life will continue one way or another. I wouldn't make a prediction, not worth getting slammed and insulted because of it,

    Obviously nothing is going to change significantly. The majority of voting Americans are too much voting against 'the other side' and too scared to lose anything to make a real change. And then you have all the clueless losers who don't vote because 'nothing will change anyway'/'the whole thing is rigged and/or predecided'. These people are all part of the real and actual reason your democracy seems so flawed and hopeless (on a national level at least)

    Same as any other day, living under empire. The rich are getting richer while the poor get poorer.

    "Those who control the levers of political power in this country, no matter their party affiliation, no matter their supposed convictions, are far more loyal to the institution in which they serve than they are to those of us who elected them. They are no more accountable to us than are our bosses at work. The politician, like the boss, is always performing a cost-benefit analysis. The moment that our interests diverge from theirs — that is to say, the moment that they step into the hallowed halls of government — they will renege on the convictions that they had so steadfastly proclaimed during a campaign."

    People who don't study history are doomed to repeat it, and those who do are doomed to stand helplessly by while the others repeat it.
