Many liberals are in shock today, refusing to acknowledge the reality that Donald Trump is America’s president-elect.

Regardless of whether Democrat Hillary Clinton squeaks out an edge in the popular vote, this much is clear: The nearly 60 million of Americans who voted Trump into office are not, as Clinton once claimed, “irredeemable.”

That those 60 million of our countrywomen and countrymen voted for Trump should not come as a great surprise. For them, he projected strength and change at a time of extraordinarily weak and liberal policy from our current president. Obama has doubled our national debt; he’s presided over the lone AAA credit downgrade in American history. His health care plan raised costs for the middle class. He signed an overly conciliatory Iranian nuclear deal and he created a vacuum that gave rise to ISIS, all while expanding executive authority beyond constitutional bounds (as noted by multiple court rulings).

So this is a first… I actually agree with a salon.com article..

The article contains some of the obvious liberal narrative's (which of been rampant through this campaign) but the author makes a valid comparison to Winston Churchhill and some other really good points…

I will be so happy to see the Obama administration's policy of idiocy repealed at every opportunity… From his innumerable edicts and orders I grow giddy at the thought of striking those down…

And that's to say nothing of the affordable care act repeal...

And to the wall opponents: You are sorely tone deaf to the current of anger felt along the border states…
I have no clue how to work in construction but if need be I will drive down to South Texas myself and help lay bricks for free...

As I watch liberals protesting across every major city I wonder what the media narrative would be if these were Trump supporters had Hillary won…
I think it would be something along the lines of "typical Trump supporters full of hate are not willing to accept the election and blah blah blah"

Anyhow, I was happy to see an island of normalcy in the ocean of stupidity that is salon.com...

My guess is the author will be fired by lunch for actually preaching American values as opposed to liberal orthodoxy..

Yup, if you do not agree with Hillary, you are defective and can't be fixed. That attitude that "anyone who does not think she is great or her actions appropriate is not worthy" is why I do not like the woman. She exploits people not being able to think clearly because of the mind controlling chemistry in our food and meds. I feel that some people up high know about these doping practices of the people by chemical companies. It is alright to control the masses for the good of the people. I believe civility and a little natural doping is all right so we can have some fun, but I see way too much in our foods and meds. Blocking acetylcholine is one way to make it so people accept what they are told. How many entry level meds do this, pop a pill to make you feel better and keep on spending more than you earn.

The wall will have waterfalls and golf courses on it....

As far as unions, they are few and far between in texas...we are a right-to-work state...
I'm not arguing for or against unions, just saying they don't exist in any tangible capacity...

They can pay for the wall by charging admission fees to illegal immagrants coming to this country. Why should they be able to sneak across without paying? Charge each one a thousand bucks and then when they get caught just deport them and they will have to pay again. We might be able to balance our budget that way. Canada might as well do the same thing to keep out Americans who do not like Trump. Charge them ten grand to go live in Canada. This is perfect timing, they can take credit cards at the gates.

Why don't we just shut down some expensive bases in Europe to save money, and divert the DOD personnel who will no longer be there into a national security construction project that is the wall?? Less likely then that bribed contractors or infiltrated immigrants build weaknesses and secret compartments into the wall.

Plus, we can let them shoot people if they see them trying to cross illegally, with tranquilizers of course ... so we can confirm their identity and motives ...

Our presence in Europe is of paramount importance…

We have an unfathomable foe who draws a shadow across the globe…
Radical Islam must be met with sword and shield…

We cannot close bases...this good earth needs America…
We are the light of the High West and it is our sacred duty to protect the world from evil…

The cost of displaying our power is much cheaper than war…
My hero Douglas MacArthur knew this which is why Tokyo-Ken(some of the most expensive real estate in the world) still has an American base…

There are some problems there. Virtually any intelligent person knows that Obama came into office just as the financial market crashed. It's obvious he didn't create that.

Obama did not create the vacuum that Isis arose out of, Bush did through the Iraq war.. However, Clinton and Obama's support of a proxy war in Syria HAS contributed to the rise of Isis. I mainly criticize both Obama and Clinton for continuing the neo con politicized that Bush Jr. was all about.

Tell that to Europe in 1917 or 1941....

Tell that to Manchuria and China in 1938...

Tell that to South Korea in 1945...

Tell that to Vietnam in 1960....

Tell that to Hungary in 1956....

Tell that to Kuwait in 1990...

Tell that to the Middle East in 2001....

There are thousands of examples I could've added…

But let me talk to you for moment about the non-government-sanctioned American proclivities…

Go to any corner of the globe, no matter how bad of a hellhole, and you'll find an American based charity organization doing what is right and good…

You will find American physicians and nurses and volunteers working freely to make the world a safer, better place…

Americans historically follow our genetic predisposition to be good and right and while your moral equivocation, relativism, and progressivism disallows you from correctly identifying America's "exceptionalism" the fact is we are the light of the world…

We split the atom and walked on the moon, the single greatest feat in the history of the Homo sapiens species…
These fantastic accomplishments were born of the uniquely American ethos and it's associated sensibilities…

They should make it like the great wall of china and charge tourist to walk the entire wall, let have restaurants on it, spas and hotels, that will pay the wall by itself.

I'm a little surprised to see this coming from Salon, and a little hopeful going forward they might actually employ such reason and thoughtfulness in future battles... nothing better than learning from one's mistakes. Unfortunately, Hillary didn't learn the proper lesson from Romney's "47%" comments. I've never run for office, but it seems pretty foolish to insult half of the voters...

I think we can look at their reaction when Trump said the elections were rigged and they accused him of undermining and creating a Constitutional crisis and whatever.

My preference would to be to use the 'allegedly' ill gotten gains of the soon to be shut Clinton Foundation to pay for the wall - it would be marvellous! Imagine the little plaque on it attributing the Clintons with its construction

Would we really need a wall, if our government prosecuted and punished all the companies that illegally employ non-citizens?

Isn't that the crux of the problem?

Call it "Trump BorderLand Spa, Resort and Casino.

And where it crosses Native American Tribal lands, let the tribes operate that portion.

You won't be getting a wall.
You won't be 'Locking her up'
Unless you really do want to be that country that locks up opposition and builds walls to seperate themselves like countries in the past with ominous music playing over the top.
Reagan wanted a wall torn down, you lot want one built. Won't happen.

Nobody mentioned "Hillary" one assuming you're referring to…

And YES, with a house and senate in proper order the wall will be built…

Also my wife and I will go work for free for months if we have to to get the wall built..
Heck, I'll even pay for others to take off work...

The government has been taking unfathomable amounts of money from us for the better part of my adult life and I've seen little in return for it in regards to the safety of my great state from the illegal deluge this past half century…

So I'm ready to fork over obscene amounts of money to get this done and my labor if necessary…

Trump is the first politician who has actually understood the plight of borders states and I could not be more happy...
