There is so much more than meets the eye here. What about voter apathy? What percentage of legal voters just can't be bothered?

I think you are about 8 years too late on this statement.

Now we have entered idiocracy?


Now we are seeing the fruits of the idiocracy. America is now officially the land of hatred and bigotry. My condolences.


That only happens if you make it so. Is that what you are going to make your America into? Seems to me this is the very same rhetoric that Clinton supporters have been hammered with by their hive minded leaders during the entire campaign. Now it is a good time to stop thinking you have lost, and help America win again, since everyone up till now has been losing too much. For a general example, under Obama there are now twice as many unemployed blacks than there was when he first became president. What this means is that you have been lied to so much and so often, and told you can never win unless your candidate wins, but under these very same people, everyone has done everything except win.

My point was that voting doesn't matter. Either way, the rulers got the puppet that they wanted; it was selected before the farce even started. We were screwed either way because it didn't matter. It's going to be business as usual.

Prolitics is for hunks.

Everybody knows Hillard Crangus was just a pruppet of the establishment.

For your health!

The thing about Pedestals - - - those on top rarely remain.

Curious what the first "tarnish" will be.

The sad thing is you and those like you are saying this while celebrating trump *facepalm*, how you can write that with a straight face has gone past funny to absurd.

You make a mockery of the words in your avatar and it could be put forward that you post hypocritical crap so you can advertise the youtube channel in your sig.

Nice headline very tactful.

Remember you choose your own destiny.

Could be worse Hillary could've won.

The election of Trump was the first smart thing this country has done in the past 16 years.

Don't be sore losers.

Hopefully he will support justices who respect the constitution, not appoint justices who twist it to serve a Marxist agenda like Obama has done.

Sure. Whatever that means.

Overturning Roe V. Wade is one of them. Overturning the 2015 decision banning gay marriage is unconstitutional is another. All things he's said he hopes is accomplished via the supreme court justices he appoints. Perhaps you find those changes agreeable. I'm sure many Trump supporters would. I, for one, find it morally appalling.


If it makes you feel any better, it could have been worse. Clinton could have won.



Yes. it could have been worse if she had won.I had planned to bug out if she did.

You'd rather have her sitting at her desk being told what to do by her husband?


I have a very strong feeling that she told him what to do.I could be wrong,but I doubt it.

I don't know if you're being facetious but if you aren't go with the baptist. Perhaps you can be like Simon Magus and be converted.

Don't believe the Catholics; Simon was truly converted and simply made a mistake with Peter for which he was sincerely repentant.

I'm mostly worried about the supreme court justices he's appointing and what follows


At the very least, we'll get lots of comedy out of this on talk shows.


Yes in a way Trumps election is the best thing that could happen for many liberals. Now we can see the anti war celebrities like Bruce Springsteen come out and protest a president again. We can see the talks shows mock the president again.

I mean, to do that to Obama would have been racist right, so he got a pass even though he was a war monger that supported the corrupt bankers.

Trump has won, he is giving the acceptance speech based on Clinton's concession.

God help us all.

I also hope ATS stays together and a family, like we have been. It has gotten through several elections.

This one is different, though.

I love my country, I will now have to think of Donald Trump as Commander in Chief come January.

Let us stay together.


While I find your position a little disturbing, I would like to clarify something. I absolutely understand what you mean, but would like a few more details. When you say "I love my country", and I believe you do...I'm curious what it is you love. Do you mean by "my country" the land, the people, the views and morals, the history, the government or what combination exactly. This is not to argue or anything, but I've found that that phrase means different things to different people.

Yes, NOW. Must I repeat myself?


What about this election makes it more idiocratic (not a word) than previous elections? Why can't you give Trump the same proactive attitude that you gave Obama?


BecauseBecause I know how stupid he is.e]

This---right here---is why people can't take your assessments seriously.

I know several stupid people, some are family members, some have been fairly wealthy at one time. Of all the stupid people I know, none have taken a million-dollar nest egg and built it into billions of dollars.

You could call Donald Trump a lot of names and be accurate but calling him stupid is simply delusional. Stupid people are the ones standing around with their hands out after they've squandered their inheritance. I see and deal with them on almost a daily basis.

I didn't vote for him but I did watch his acceptance speech, something I've not done in years. I was as surprised as the next person to see the votes unfold across the country. I could be all mad and upset because my guy didn't win but at least I am honest enough to admit that I knew that the Libertarian wouldn't wake up the winner this morning. So, as when Obama was elected, I'll sit back and watch. My one hope is that at the end of the Donald's first term, I will no longer be an outlaw for refusing to pay thousands of dollars to an insurance company for a service I don't need.

I'm actually gratified that we've experienced a peaceful revolution---a turning away from politics as usual with the corrupt crowd. I would have preferred to have Gary Johnson handling domestic and foreign policy for the next four years but I think Trump is up to the challenge. I won't like everything he does but at least we won't have to worry about whether or not he is going to collapse at the first signs of stress. I'm glad the people decided that a guy who believes in the basic foundations of the nation as outlined in the Constitution are the better ideas.

I'm also glad that the msm has been exposed. It was long overdue.

I actually tuned in to CNN for a bit last night and have to admit that I giggled a little bit when they were squirming and twisting themselves into pretzels over the events unfolding before their very tearful eyes. Their hubris was much on display. Their faces looked like they'd had their Halloween candy stolen and replaced with green persimmons. They doggedly kept talking about how Obama was at the "height of his popularity---running the highest poll numbers of his presidency" etc. Bless their hearts, they never stopped to consider that the same people running those presidential popularity polls were the ones telling them that the Donald never had a chance.


Dry your tears dear, Hillary and her cabal will do fine. Neither she nor Bill has had a job for a long time now and they're managing to survive. The country will be fine.

Well, this is what happens when the Cubs win the World Series.
(This is going to be my catch-phrase for the next year. Trump wins? - it's because the Cubs won. Somebody finds a two-headed snake? - it's because the Cubs won. There's a blizzard in Alabama? Yup, it's because the Cubs won the World Series.)

At least you know now that Pigs can fly.

Its funny watching poor people happy over a Trump presidency. Seriously, anyone they may be visiting America, don't drink the water that comes from the sink.
