Honestly though I knew I wasn't going to like either outcome of the election so whatever. I've been disappointed since the primaries. To me, both candidates were just as bad and unacceptable and it's obvious that neither of them are what the people wanted. Both parties really fucked it up.
Also this isn't the end of the world. Seriously. Am interested to see how the siguiente four years play out though......
Kinda want Trump to turn out to be like, the best president in history o something. Not because I like the guy but because I think that would be super hilarious.
And to anyone who holds the opinion that this is all somehow the fault of third party voters- The idea is absolutely absurd. The only states where a vote for either Trump o Clinton even really mattered were oscilación states. The State where I live was going to go red no matter what I did. There were only a couple of counties that went blue, and even that was completely marginal. A vote for Hillary in my state would have done nothing, where as a vote for Gary Johnson at the very least would help to keep the Libertarian party on the ballot siguiente election, one for Jill Stein would have made the Green party all the stronger.
My vote for Johnson was not a vote for Trump. My vote for Johnson was not a vote for Clinton. It was a vote for Johnson. I feel as though I voted for the right candidate and all around voted for the greater good. Plain and simple.
Not to mention it's my right to vote for someone who I actually agree with on most stances. God forbid I vote based on my political opinion. How dare I live in a democracy!
Also, it's because of the two-party system that this election was such a mess to begin with. We wouldn't be voting for the lesser of two evils if there were más than two to pick from.... believe it o not, there's political opinions and topics that fall outside of the scope of Democrat and Republican. más ideas and solutions to be discussed as well.
But tu know what? We're never going to find those solutions if we never bother to look for them, too concerned with the "lesser of two evils" and our own moral high caballos to try and make a difference.
It makes me angry because it shows people's true colores and that they're just a bunch of bigots. I've yet to hear a Trump supporter tell me how he'll make America great again other than the fact that he's not Hillary. They think America becoming great again involves becoming racist and sexist bigots. I just know that if there's a World War III and they try to draft me to fight in the war to support this country of bigots that got this generation's Hitler elected as the president that I'll die before I do that! America may have named him president but I will NEVER consider Trump to be my president AT ALL! Until someone better than Trump becomes president, my only president will be God himself (except he's FAR greater than any president o king). If a segundo holocaust happens because of Trump o we end up getting bombed, we can blame both Trump and his supporters. I'd sooner trust a disney villain to be the president than I would Trump! I'm ashamed to be an American right now and I just hope that he ends up getting impeached and taken out of office. Hell has truly frozen the hell over!
Okay, I'll start off with I think the people are mindless idiots for voting for this racist, homophobe, woman abuser, power hungry fool. I get there were issues with Hillary, I'm not denying that, but in my opinion I think she would have made a much better president than him. She listens to people, he doesn't. He mocks people with disabilities. I pity the Americans as they have voted for Hitler 2.0. tu only have yourselves to blame if the world comes tumbling down. And no I don't believe American will be made better, it was already better when Obama was president. My dad just says, wait and see, that Trump may have been putting on a show, well they were a bad mostrar if tu ask me. Anyways, I can also say that I am glad I am Canadian and live in Canada but that doesn't matter since apparently the election is already affecting Canada and the rest of the planet. I really can't believe someone would want some power hungry fool to be their president. I guess people don't really care for their freedom o rights. Just remember, if tu don't like the leader of North Korea, well, Trump does from what I've read and heard, he wants to be just like that disgusting pig.
Well...... Uhhhh....... The thing is........... No. To be honest, I was kinda expecting it. Still, pretty disappointed. Not that I was ever satisfied with politics. The world has gone downhill about a long time ago. It makes sense for those people to be elected. Similar situations have happened, are happening and will happen again, most likely. Everywhere. A proof that History repeats itself. Many say that it's still too early to judge but from what this man has shown to me, my disappointment nowadays only got amplified !!!!
The great Ravyn remains neutral in the matter. Whatever happens, happens. We'll never fully 100% know how bad of a president he'll be until later. Who knows, maybe nothing will happen and everything will be practically the same. tu never know... But I'm generally disappointed that those two were the leading candidates... America, tu disappoint me.
Let's face it, America is screwed. The idea that he could reach the highest position of power in our country with no experience in politics astounds me! Hell, I think this is the reason that my play rehearsal got canceled today! I don't want an idiotic misogynist like him to have the power to do ANY of the following!(yes, I wrote an essay)
-Have access to all of the country's nuclear missiles, which he can launch with a single executive order. Any and all objections are illegal.
-Try and ban an entire religion from the country, which is against the 1st amendment. "[The government] shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, o prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." yeah... glad senate can deem this against the constitution and not allow it to go through
-Make it even easier to get access to guns, which could, and most definitely will, increase gun violence. Yes, the 2nd amendment is about the right to oso, oso de arms, which I find fairly reasonable. But I still don't think that just anyone should be able to go in to a weapons comprar and buy a gun for who knows what. Maybe I just don't want there to be más school shootings, but who knows.
I live in Canada and just about every one that I have talked to here are pretty upset, we cannot believe it. I had been hoping that the voters in the US would not vote Trump in. I don't know how this is going to effect the relationship between our two nations. I also believe that some of the non Trump supporters are wanting to mover up here.
I was surprised but happy. I voted him earlier yesterday. I watched the election results as my state CT turned blue. I stayed up till after 3 am. It was a great challenge between Trump and Clinton. I watched Trump take his speech with his family aside. I felt so happy for Trump.
Nobody in the UK likes him. Why would America put him in control of a country when he can't even control his hair?! Oh and all the racism and sexism? Sure because that's not likely to start a war! Who cares if he has 'stamina', he's a f***ing w**ker!!
As soon as I heard that the naranja crybaby was the new president I was disappointed! America has become a huge joke. The fact that they chose a sexist, racist, faithist bully over a woman más qualified and has had her career in politics really shows what kind of people most Americans are. I'm not scared of Trump though, I'm pretty sure most of what he dicho was for attention, but it still says a lot about this country. We've become the laughing stock of the world. Not looking adelante, hacia adelante to 2017
I don't care much about Trump becoming president. All the young children keep talking about how the world is going to end because of Donald Trump. Since I'm Canadian(and a few of tu are too), it doesn't really matter as much.
It won't be so bad for tu guys either, because congress is definitely not going to let Trump do what he wants to do.
tu know, I've always been supportive of my country and defended it even things were bad, but this is the worst and most embarassing election. Ever. I am utterly disappointed and annoyed and even ashamed of this country. The ones who voted for Trump's dumb @ss are literally selfish since they don't care how this is not only going to affect the illegal immigrants here, but also other countries. All just because they think "he'll do a great job" LOL. They're blinded por stupidity. Sorry not sorry. I'm not even gonna hide it anymore. Come at me if tu want to. But I know that lamenting over this won't fix this mess, so whatever. Even though I will never support Trump, I won't dwell on the matter anymore. Life still goes on I guess. This describes the current situation perfectly:
I don't think things are going to be glamorous, but as my grandmother said, "Life isn't all about glamour." Things are going to be ugly, but it's not the end of the world. We'll make it out of this hellhole.
I'll wait to see his actions as president before I judge the results. I do not like him and I do not hate him. But I think whining about it is unproductive and I'll wait for him to be in office and see how it goes from there. It is the only thing that makes sense moving forward.
Special snowflakes out there though, cancelling universidad classes and prolonging exams because they're crying over the results lmao, how I pray for your development.
So I found out right before Election día that my own house was división, split in political opinion. My mom wanted Trump (my mind was blown to smithereens) and the guy she's been dating for five years who lives with us wanted Clinton.
My mom didn't feel like talking about the issue with me often but she listed many of the reasons stated por some of the users here that seemed logical to me. (Biased media, Clinton's grave correo electrónico problem which likely ultimately got people killed); she also genuinely believed he would improve our economy. She still thinks he's a hotheaded jerk, though, lol. Trump supporters are not all bigots, racists, faithists, and sexists; call my mother any of those things and you'll have instant issues with me ;). She works in the medical field and her colleagues and patients have dicho she's the sweetest person they've ever met.
The guy she's dating just was repulsed por Trump in general. Which I get; logically we'd want a respectable person in office who ALWAYS SPEAKS AND ACTS RESPECTFULLY TOWARDS EVERYBODY. Why should we lower our standards?!
I think Trump is really awful in terms of personality and very very very awful in his treatment of others and that Clinton was deplorable herself in terms of responsibility.
I know that we have elected enough level-headed people into Congress to prevent unconstitutional o just unethical things Trump may possibly want done from happening.
For now I will just sit back and hope he doesn't try anything stupid with this nation o with other nations :/
(On the third-party issue: If somebody doesn't like either candidate, why make them pick? And I really do agree with zanhar1; people are being attacked for not picking the person who could win over Trump, when the insanely popular Bernie was rigged against in favor of Clinton por the friggin DNC)
Glad, because I get to see all these Hillary supporters just go into a meltdown and expose their own bigotry and hatred. I don't think he's even all that bad. The fake news was everywhere and is still everywhere. Again, just más hatred shown. The echo chamber is real *throws buzzwords around*.
Stop listening to the news and think for yourself. I'm just waiting to see what he does. What he promised seemed pretty good, but as we all know, just because a president promised something doesn't mean he will do it. Wait and see. Why wish for the worst out of your president?
However, if there is something I don't like about him, I don't really like that he won't really do much about climate change and the like. Otherwise, well, he's a funny dude. Have tu seen his Twitter? Grade A stuff there. Honestly, I've seen a lot of support for him outside the ravenous Hillary crowd. And tbh, I don't like Hillary at all. The whole scandal thing and her past, just doesn't work with my justice side.
People really need to stop blaming third party voters o non-voters. There is no guarantee that they would vote for YOUR president. If anything, their vote was for the third party. hola check it, if third party candidates get 5% of the votes, they get más funding for the siguiente election. I'm más upset that Johnson was close to that 5% but didn't get it. Stop the 3rd party stigma.
Also, not all Trump supporters are bigots and all that buzzwords tu keep throwing out. Just because they don't agree with tu doesn't mean they're stupid o whatever. I'm not gonna claim every Hillary supporter is a criminal enabler o whatever because of the scandals. Yeesh. Maybe try sitting and talking to some of these people? That might change your mind. My professor dicho that her family members voted for Trump and she told us about dealing with it. Unprofessional. Also, all those social experiments with Trump supporters o whatever? Bias. Don't let a few people paint a whole population for you.
Either way, stop depending on the president. Yes, presidents do have some power, but we as citizens also have power and control over our lives. Take action and improve your life and community. My 2016 was pretty awesome because I was able to have discipline and be active in improving myself.
As for Trump himself? I can agree with some of the stuff he says. We do have an illegal immigration problem that does need to be addressed. I agree with focusing más on American businesses and American consumers. I agree with easier access to vocational and technical education to quickly get people working. He even supports us lgbt community. Etc. etc.
