I don’t know about anyone else, but I am sick and tired of the entire debacle in Washington. I am dead tired of it. Donald Trump won, he is our president. End of discussion.
Right now, all anyone is doing by attempting to change that is embarrass themselves.
Look, I’m not a big fan of Trump. I like him better than Hillary, but honestly I didn’t see a winning hand at all there. Had Sanders run against Trump, I might have just skipped over the presidential ballot and voted for the questions and Reps.
But you don’t understand, Trump is evil! He’s a misogynist, racist, anti-LGBT, hater!
Okay, one… when has he ever said ANYTHING against the LGBT community? He’s met with several of their leaders and we’ve heard him say great things about them.
As for the other claims… you may have a point there, but how is trying to put Clinton into office any better? You want to make the first woman president someone with a laundry list of corruption and the first gentleman a known sexual abuser whom we have documented evidence of traveling on the euphemistically named ‘Lolita Express’ to meet a millionaire on his island home where child sex trafficking took place? REALLY???
How is that standing up for women’s rights? Again, I’m not defending Trump. I agree that he has issues with various groups of people, but I hardly view Clinton as a better choice.
But… but… she won the popular vote! The electoral college is screwed up. We need to abolish it.
Okay… okay… I admit that the electoral college was put in place to protect the government from the ordinary run of the mill people… but abolish it all together? Do that, and California with a small handful of other states, elect the president. The rest of us would be completely irrelevant.
If you want to fix this, the best way would be for each state to put a process in place why which the electoral vote goes by percentage (see Maine) and the vote is automatic so we don’t have to deal with so-called ‘faithless electors.’
I agree that something needs to be changed, but place the vote 100% in the hands of a few states… and given who those states have sent to Congress in the past… do we really want to risk that?
But what about the Russians? They screwed with our election! If it wasn’t for their tampering…
What? If it wasn’t for their tampering what? Hillary was already unlikable. She lost the last primary to a first-term senator who back then was a nobody. She lost back then (2008)… You want to look at election tampering, look at the Democratic Primary 2016.
So you think Russia tampered with the election? All right, then show me proof. Where is the proof that this happened? Sorry, but the word of a few unnamed contacts at the CIA doesn’t count… especially not after Iraq.
Okay look, I am tired of this. I have lost friends because I refused to side either way in this absurdity of an election, I have watched many of my favorite fandoms succumb to social justice bigotry, hypocrisy, and vagrant racial superiority, and I’ve sworn off certain actors and directors because after some of the foolish and downright hateful things they’ve said, on bothsides, I never want to give them my business again. I’ve even stopped reading certain books because they’ve fallen into the same trap after a number of great novels in their respective series.
Geek culture is in shambles as the result of identity politics, political correctness and both left and right wing politics being thrown in their faces.
I am tired of being preached at. I am sick of being told that I’m un-American and anti-freedom by one side and a misogynist/racist/bigoted hater by the other side.
To those who are hoping to sway the electoral college: Enough already. It’s not going to happen. You all, Hillary included, had concerns about what Trump would do if he lost the election… I get the feeling that you were worried he try to pull something LIKE WHAT YOU’RE PULLING NOW!
Hillary Clinton and her supporters need to stop, because this is embarrassing and incredibly hypocritical. It’s also unnecessary. Look, in all likelihood, Trump isn’t going to get to do half of the things he wants to do because Congress to a point is also pretty scared by some of his rhetoric.
People… please stop. Let today be our final battlefield and then start working on make this a better country. Accept whatever the electors say, work to fix the system later, and work towards rebuilding and coming together. That’s all I really ask…
Anyway, leave me your opinion below… personally I’ve just about had it.
