    Hope that he doesn't start WWIII. If I get a sense that the Handmaids Tale is about to become reality, I'm booking it to another country. Democracy is dying in the US and I don't see it ending well whether Trump wins or not. Even if he loses, there are a lot of people drinking his kool aid.

    I had to lie to my in laws that my partner and I didn't vote because we didn't want to get blamed for Trump losing. Literally we've had arguments about politics before where she threatened to disown her own daughter. We don't talk about politics anymore.

    I think those who ignore the evidence that he is a bad monster are the foolish ones.

    dismissing 68+ million people seems foolish

    to the OP:

    Scream? Cry? no.

    Probably vent. I'll find a way to express my disdain for the state of things to come. I think the last thing you'll find me doing is sticking my head in the sand.

    One of the beautiful things about this country is that if you don't like the current state of politics, you can speak. To everyone! Tell you neighbors, tell your friends. Tell them why. Let it be known that the constituents will not let this stand. We cannot be complacent! We must not be idle! We will make it known what values we stand for, on this forum, in social media, through music, through speeches, on the internet, and in all that we do. We are together as one, fighting for the survival of this vibrant democracy, and for what we have come to understand as the breath and soul of our country.

    Freedom is our oxygen. Let it be available to all of earth's people from all walks of life, all nationalities, children and elders alike.

    68,000,000 people love a lying, crooked con man, a cheater, a womanizer with no respect for women, a racist, narcissistic bully-------nothing to see here. Everything is hunky-fuckin' dory. What will I do? Eat more ice cream.

    You can fool some of the people all of the time. - Abe Lincoln
  7. Celebrate that America will be less subject to freedom-killing restrictions, more economic freedom and opportunity, better foreign policy and trade deals, less involvement in foreign conflicts, more manufacturing and jobs in the country, putting the interest of our own country ahead of the rest of the world, improved opportunities for the marginalized due to improved education resulting from school choice and competition to attract students.
  8. Shouldn't you do those things always, no matter the government?

    Not so fast. If you've ever watched the horror flicks (Jason, Freddie, Michael) you know that monsters don't die easily. Trump has already said "It's far from over". I don't think his legal arguments will hold water, but given the caliber of the stooges he's packed the courts with, who knows? Then there are still the goons he's stirred up, with their AR15s, itching for civil war .

    Yes, the election is over and now the lawsuits and the riots can begin. But that's no reason not to celebrate!

    It's true some chaos always precedes order, but there is no reason to wallow in it. Let's deescalate all future insanity!

    I highly doubt Trump supporters are so vested in him that they're willing to overthrow the government en masse. However, I wouldn't be surprised if we have an extremist or two attempt a terrorist attack of some kind.

    Trump has no evidence. He's going to kick and scream all the way out. But he will be leaving and that's all I can hope for. To expect him to act like a decent human is asking for too much.
