No way. Americans made the right choice and I couldn't be more happy for them. It's the arrogant, smug elitism that I read in your post that makes a Trump victory all the more worthwhile. And yes, socialism is evil.

Really? Maybe you should try living in Zimbabwe or Somalia, or maybe Afghanistan.

Hopefully there will be a really good result from this election and that is all the people who have been spouting on ATS will now STOP AND DESIST and we can bet back to a conspiracy site and not a social media, political diatribe that has taken over ATS for the last few weeks. Just shut the f*** up and move on.

Now now, we can all safely assume that this smug elitism comes from a place of fear of the unknown. Trump represents something that isn't in line with business as usual and that makes a lot of people scared and angry.

Worried? No.
Disgusted? No.
Appalled? No.

Shocked when I heard the result? Yes.
A little disappointed? Yes, but only because I'm looking on from an outside perspective, without a vested interest at the root of the issues.

Do I think Trump is a jerk? Yes. For many, many reasons.
But so was Clinton - for many different ones.

Its been exactly the same as the Brexit vote over here. Fear politics, condemnation, rhetoric and very little recourse to facts, discussion and measured viewpoints.

And yes, Trump has bought out the worst in some people - some is the key word there. Not all.

Because, you can't blame all for the actions of a few, can you?

And as with Brexit, some people will simply have voted for a change, rather than a viewpoint.

And as with Brexit, the lessons of voting for that change have to be learned - probably the hard way.

But - to paraphrase a great man - we do these things not because they are easy, but because they are hard.

Think about it.

Firstly there is an overwhelming sense of relief that the 18 month election circus is over its like a root canal that never ends,second under the rules of the system we have a clear winner so everyone should get behind him and support him.Yes he is an unknown quantity but I think if he is allowed to serve his term he will be much better than predicted...as for American behaviour well it is a winner-loser culture and the losers never take it well

Sometimes Londoners and their behavior ashames me too, especially with the typical anti free speech violence that gets committed.



Sometimes you guys get really angry too.Lets just look at America tough and pretend only we are guilty.

Am I the only one here who sees democracy in action. I am neither amused or disgusted. It's good.

OK the American's elected a bit of a twit, but look what the alternative was.

I say give him a couple of years. He may be a disaster, but he may not. What he will be is not some establishment robot that has been bought by the lobbies and vested interest.

Sometimes a walk into the unknown is good. A bit like Brexit, we were told we would all die, but we're still here.

Most Americans are better than the OP at one thing for sure - discerning sensationalism and extremism.

Do you truly think the extremists (both verbal and physical) are at all representative of the population as a whole?

Do you truly believe that Americans want to be involved in Middle East wars?

Do you truly believe that most Americans were really excited about our choice of candidates?

If we're guilty of sucking at anything, it would be not staging an armed revolution (read: revolutionary-crushing bloodbath) when, despite our scum politicians, we still have it really REALLY good here.

When you cry like this, you sound no different than the crybabies in the minority here. They make a lot of noise, they get the most attention, but in the end, they're relatively inconsequential.

Most of us will continue living our lives, as we would regardless of which megalomaniac won the election. Happy, content, and reading about/watching idiotic supporters of both candidates, wondering what the hell is wrong with them.

Trump is like the extreme version of Bush. No wonder the nation that voted for Bush twice didn't let go of the chance of giving their max power to super bush. Seems like the scare tactics won, like they did for BRexit and Hitler decades earlier...it's really sad.
We, the world are definitely shaking our heads. Not that the alternative was any better but a nation as big as the usa should really have better candidates than a trump or hillary.

I can feel the rage & hatred in your post, Lizard... A difference is to be made between the lunatic, blood-thirsty, deluded globalist psychopaths running America on one hand (whom I deeply hate), and the American people on the other hand, who are in general just honest humans trying to put up with all the sh*t we call our modern world, despite the lies, brainwashing and social pressure. Hating billions of people (who are also victims) for the crimes of a small elite is stupid and pointless: do you wanna nuke the UK because of Thatcher? Condemn everyone living in the Arabian peninsula because of the wahhabi Saudis sponsoring terrorism?

I'm French, I'm kinda new in here but I haven't seen so far idiotic and arrogant people believing that America should run the world, quite the opposite in fact, I hardly see why someone would go on a site like ATS just to spill out the nonsensical propaganda they've been fed, by CNN or I don't know what.

I also find it kinda funny when American people think what they call "liberals" is socialism, but their political history is different. Americans could also find funny that some Europeans depict libertarian folks like Ron Paul as egoistic, power-hungry, dangerous fools who don't wanna share anything. I guess it's normal, until you get to know things better.
