People who are calling suicide prevention and crisis lines because they have become mentally unhinged due to the results of an election outcome should be fined for wasting the time and resources of services that are available. What a massive insult and gross inconvenience to the genuine cases of people needing these types of services.


If one has suicidal thoughts, they are supposed to call so they do not kill themselves. No matter the reason, and you want them fined? The National Director encourages that they call no matter what may have set off these feelings.

If one feels in danger they are supposed to call 911, however, they can end up with a fine for misusing police services.

If anyone seriously is feeling suicidal over a presidential election, they need more help than a suicide line could ever provide.


A suicide line can refer them to a counselor or a psychologist. The Crisis and Suicide Prevention line is not 911, so apples and oranges. When the national Director says ANYONE should call who feels that way, I believe we should go with that.

You could never know unless you were inside of their mind. Anything else is a baseless guess.

The pussification of America continues.

Could you imagine if the draft was still around? We would be so screwed.

the question you should ask yourself is that perhaps these people already had suicidal ideas prior to the election.



He insulted women, the disabled and minorities. He has caused such fear in average people,


These "average" people were happy whilst America sent troops off to invade the Middle East and caused untold death and displacement, they were happy importing cheap Chinese goods and displacing US factories to third world countries where labour is cheap. They were happy whilst the Bush cabal were in power.

Do you expect me to believe that they were sane to begin with?

How can Trump who is not even in the White House yet trigger them so easily?

Seriously, if you feel like you need to die just because your preferred candidate did not get elected, you have serious mental/emotional health issues.


Thank you for these words

I feel sympathy for these people because they are allowing the fear mongering media to influence them and they now feel like their life as it was before is over. Nothing much is gonna change in people's day to day lives. Hopefully things will get better and not worse.

It is frivolous, and it costs money. How much have YOU personally donated to your local suicide hotline? I will start by holding up zero fingers, I'll put one up for every dollar you have ever donated. Something tells me I'm going to be making a fist all night.

Reldra, with all due respect for you

The schools, especially colleges who have given young students 'save spaces' because a differing opinion upsets them so much is partly to blame for this.

We need strong young americans who understand others have a right to an opinion and that change will come again.

Instead of giving the young strength and an ability to discuss the differences without hostility they are teaching them they are the only ones who have it right.

Not to mention the national media who only reported the negatives of Trump (and there were many in the beginning), they never reported the positives.

These young people need to be given the opportunity to grow up.


Again, the calls came from people of all ages. Only a small portion of my OP mentioned an organization that only services youth.

The media is not blameless, but Trump should have had control over his own mouth.


I did see some older people in the protests but it was overwhelming young people.

Just because one organization caters to youth ( and glad there is an organization for them) doesn't mean youth didn't call better known organizations.

Hope we can accept our differences. This is just a small part of life.

I know you have gone thru many difficulties and changes in your lifetime and overcome much more than an election.

I would have been an Obama supporter his first term had I not changed district just before the election.

i would never have supported him after about the 2nd year.

How do you know they were happy about wars the US is engaged in? Not possible to know.

You have inside knowledge that a majority are business and import goods???????

Possibly they were depressed before, but could live through Bush and Trump pushed them over a line. For that, one must be inside of their head and that is impossible to do.

This is all Trump's fault. I knew this would happen if he won because he was so divisive. People at this forum thought that Trump could say or do anything without people getting angry. His words angered people like I have never seen before. Making fun of veterans, minorities, women... everything he did made people hate him. I've met quite a few people that truly hate him like I have never seen anyone hate a politician before. As president, he has no idea what he's doing. People thought he was a wild card, well, its a wild card that has no idea what he's doing. He could start a war over his ego. Hillary has her flaws, but at least people feel she can do that job. With Trump, people don't trust him whatsoever.

And no, If Hillary won we would not have riots. People thought she would likely win. They already saw her as a president. Trump they saw as a pig.

This is just another psy-ops trick.

The "Campaign" in question had many back-up plans to deal with a devastating political loss.

There is absolutely no proof at all these "extra" call ins were genuine.

Another trick is the psy-ops of holding back some of the vote counts.

Psy-ops operation involve lots of psychology.

Both are tax funded.

Both tell you to call, and while circumstances my differ, several non-factor calls flow into both.

How much PERSONAL dollars have you committed to this? Th more you contribute the less I will have to pay in taxes. Get on it.

1) Calling a Suicide hotline if you have suicidal thoughts is logical. It is the very reason to call.
2) If you are considering a career in telepathy or remote viewing of another's mind, you should give up on that.

don't need to be in their minds, i seen real depression and bullsh@@ election talk doesn't rank up their as a reason to regress in their lives. i've also spent many hours in hospitals where my aunt was and saw real depressed people. and that sh@@ right there is the real deal.

not just some puttin on the dog cause hillary lost and the red head monster is gonna kill them.
having your feelings hurt because what was said and real depression is way different.
