  • Look, if you are at all sensitive or left leaning, today might be a good day to not read any newspapers and maybe give the Internet a break?

      • For all the Trump haters I don't think a second term is unlikely.

        The bad news

        To avoid the concentration camps all the daydreams will need to move to a socialist paradise of their choice. Voting with your feet is one of the greatest liberties.

        If you happen to be a government employee early retirement may be something you want to consider.

        If you are an illegal alien you may want to start packing.

        If you are a pollster you should be fired.

        If you are in the media prepare for libel litigation from the president.

        Hillary may want to kill a few people soon before the investigations resume.

        You can go ahead and move the doomsday clock back a half hour.

        If you are a social justice bigot you just lost your greatest allies.

        If you are are a religious nut of any variety religious freedom may finally be relegated to it's constitutional origins.

        If you are a banister or wall street fraud your investment in a corrupt politician was about as stupid as your housing market ponzi scheme.

        Hopefully religion will no longer be confused with race.

        If you have been allowing the U.S. to be a nuclear target so your country isn't it may be your turn to practice duck and cover.

        If you are in NATO find a way to pay your share.

        In general it it is a great day for anyone who understood that the authoritarian left was taken us down the road to a horrifying dystopia.

              It was going to be a lousy Wednesday no matter who won between Clinton and Trump. Horrible that these were the, to borrow a phrase, "lame stream" choices.

              • What I find interesting is the GOP now controls the House, the Senate and the White House. If Trump has any political mojo they will get some stuff done.

                    I believe his own party will block any extensive use of Executive Orders. Maybe I just pray for it.
                    We don't need a President that would carry out many of the idiot campaign statements uttered by Trump. We do need someone that would address those issues in a mature, effective manner.
                    This is a historical moment. We, as at least quasi historians need to approach this epoch in a professional, open minded perspective.
                    This is pretty much my line of thinking as well, Holly.
                    I could perceive nothing positive from a Hillary Clinton presidency. In fact, its outcome would have been all too predictable: corruption, foreign influence, regime change, secretive trade deals, more rot from Washington down and the possibility of war.
                    With Trump, it could go either way in my opinion. He may turn out to be a complete disaster, but disaster in these terms I see as ruling a dysfunctional administration, complete loggerheads between Congress and the White House, four lost years of legislative paralysis. On the other hand, he may surprise us, he may turn out to be an actually effective president, one who may be able to operate outside sectarian politics and make major changes (especially since his own party establishment all but abandoned him). It is this latter possibility that makes me hopeful, because I could perceive no hope with Hillary as president, there was nothing positive eking through that gloom.

                          As I previously stated, this is a historic moment.
                          He does not have a "white populist mandate". He has an Office given to him by those opposed to his opponent. i.e. I would expect a great many Hispanic men who are successful in their life voted for him for the same reason as myself.
                          Because of that approach, Republican support for his most extreme targets will be minimal. Paul Ryan will still hold his Office. Whoever he names to the SC will still block his most strident utterances.
                          Kennedy-Nixon created my interest in politics. I've watched the 14 elections since. Taught it for 36 years. This is a major point in American History. Whatever the American Dream means, it includes a potential opportunity for individual success based upon individual drive. I believe that this was the 'tipping point" for the election.
                          A President elected by default is not the best moment in American History.

                          Looks like the worse of the two, imo has won.

                          Now we need to start some healing as a people and unite again.

                          • Coming from bottom of my heart, I'm sorry for doubting that Trump could win at all. I didn't vote for him but I sincerely hope Trump will do a fine job of guiding our country through trying times.

                            God bless America and Trump.

                              • Just listening to some of the politicals and journalists in the media in Australia, Trump has not been around as President elect for 24 hours and people like former ambassaordors (Bob Carr and Kim Beazley) are already predicting The Donald will be a loose cannon in Pacific politics....

                                Cant these establishment fat-cats and journalists who TOTALLY failed to see the writing on the wall shut their damn mouths now and accept the will of the American people?

                                Fat Kim Beazly has just this pats ten minutes already launched a sour grape salvo claiming that the electoral College result for Trump will not be matched by a popular vote count......what a fool! The Don is ahead in this aspect of the elction as well at the current point in time, and that doesnt look like its going to change any time tomorrow....or at all!!!

                                Seems that our ex Labour (Socialist) politicians and died in the wool socialsist press corps just cannot get over the fact that none of them saw this coming....
