I’m not a Democrat. I’m not a Republican. I’m certainly no Independent backer unless that candidate is aware of what goes on unlike a certain Independent that got throw to the wolves about Aleppo.
I’m absolutely gobsmacked by what happened last night. All I will say is this… One person has a lot of skeletons in her closet to clean up by the wake of secrets her husband leaves in his wake.
One man, this elections version of P.T. Barnum, has tons of secrets he needs to get fixed.
I have never seen such a show as this in the 45 years I have been alive. Every four years this country is recreating a new Civil War. Red vs Blue. Hate v. Tolerance. Bigotry v. Peace. White v. Black/Hispanic/Asian… a man that can go on the most epic rants and direct threats on social media, yet be expunged practically by the population. Vile spew, bile, being spat at every chance he gets.
The the angelic turnaround to “unify” the country.
P.T. Barnum would be impressed Mr. Trump.
I do not know why, no one in this country can agree to disagree, yet get along like neighbors that get along or at least can stand one another. I chalk it up to the fact that the human race is the worst thing to ever hit the food chain and forms of existence.
I accept the fact Mr. Trump is in office, but he, like many presidents before him, is not my president. I do not back a man, that on the record, treats people like he does. Because he is rich. I’d challenge him to come sit with me for a few hours and talk, but that would never happen in a billion years.
Who knows what will happen but it feels like a shadow has been cast over this country. It’s no longer about who the best candidate is, it’s about Red v. Blue. The rednecks and the super rich v. the middle class. basically, this country was bamboozled the last 8 years, which is part of the reason why I see this shift to the extreme.
Over the next 2 1/2 years, I’ll hopefully see my son through high school, my daughter go into college from junior college, and I’ll be making my own Brexit from here possibly. It will be halfway through Mr. Trump’s candidacy, we shall see where we are then if we haven’t been attacked and literally stripped by Russia and Putin. The puppet Trump won.
Wikileaks has altered the course of the election. I hope Mr. Assange is pleased with changing an election he has nothing to do with since he is Australian. Your “doing it for the First Amendment and for freedom of speech claims are horse shit. If you take such an active interest in the “truth” then move here, become a citizen, and live here. You have no rights sticking your nose into American affairs, just like America has no business sticking its nose in foreign affairs or elections.
I don’t support Clinton, nor Trump. Neither Democrat, nor Republican. This political system is broken and will NEVER be repaired. Special interest and lobbyist will remain. This country will be destroyed. By our own people, or by a foreign attack which makes 9/11 look pale in comparison.
I fear for my kids futures. I hope I don’t have grandchildren at this point. There is no future for them.
Humans have only just begun to destroy this planet, now, with this election… multiply that a thousand fold.
What was done last night is done. The red states have their Republican army back and controlling the country. You can parade your religion around and force it down the throats with your Christianity, your bible thumping, your preaching. I’ll turn and look the other way.
The rich will get richer, the poor will be forgotten and either suffer more and longer or die. The middle class will be just that, and never been seen or heard as is status quo.
The fact that so many young people are urged to get out and vote means nothing when you compare positives and negatives. Just think, your futures are controlled still by hateful people, bigots, racists, the rich, the old guard who just won’t die. Anyone born between 1912 and 1945 are still ticking. Take note of the old antique at the rally who interrupted Mr. Obama as he spoke. Those are the kinds of people who block your freedoms.
Baby boomers between 1946 and 1965, still around and who have their parents and family ideals entrenched in them who still think old is best and that change is evil. 71 million got outvoted by people think that the Dukes of Hazzard, Duck Dynasty and people like Todd Chrisley, the family that starts with a ‘K’ that as far as I am concerned shall remain nameless are gospel. That think “reality tv” is just that. People in groups of 12 get stuck on an island yearly… you lost to “those” people you can’t stand.
You’re the Generation Y crowd, the hipsters, the coffee house crowds, the man bun, guitar playing, self-proclaimed musical troubadours who are oppressed. The college crowd. 71 million strong by some estimates… and you got outvoted by people who believe everything is fact on Facebook, that the Confederate flag is a symbol of freedom, that they have the right to be in this country even though we drove the Native, indigenous people off their lands and killed them, slaughtered them and continue to do so.
I’m a Generation X kid. I, however, am like Switzerland. Neutral. Running for politics, for me, is pointless. My ideals and my thoughts on policies would fall on deaf ears. I would not last in a two-party system. I would be another Gary Johnson, but know what goes on, in the rest of the world and have a view on it, and at least know one foreign leader I could name and not stumble and stammer around like a blithering idiot.
I’ve lost faith in the people of this country to be able to cohesively join forces and elect someone that is not what we have seen over the past 50 years. Morally bankrupt and corrupt. This election just exacerbated the issue more so.
This election marks the end of the world as I knew it and know it… and I don’t feel fine.
