So do I Kryties,
But unfortunately, this election has proven many things, and one of them is that soundbites, short, effective, and concise messages, are better received and more likely to take root.
Personally, as a lover of the English language, I find it very sad, but not nearly as sad as I find the fact that the constitution is likely to take two rounds to the back of the skull during the next administration in the US.
I am British, but I think the constitution of the United States of America is one of the greatest documents ever penned, which makes me very nervous for the future of my American associates and the freedoms they stand to be deprived of, if Trump and his VP act on their stated intentions.

Hillary carried only 18 out of 50 states.
The electoral college isn't perfect, but you can clearly see that by your logic large cities like NY, LA, and Chicago would decide the US election over the entire country.
But if the majority of people live in those cities then why shouldn't their vote be counted in its entirety instead of having to share equal vote with less people in other states?
Trump has stated that he has no respect for the freedom of the press on many occasions,
he has also suggested registration of and sanctions against Muslims in the US, and a discriminatory ban on their entry to the US.
he has already made it clear that his love of the first amendment only extends to HIS freedom of speech, not to others freedom of religion or the freedom of the press.
3. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn’t wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that’s about to begin.
