We'll just have to wait and see. Clearly, the media is stunned by the inaccuracy of the data and the polling, as they are outright saying so. Subjectively speaking, in my little (mostly upper middle class to wealthy) town here in MN. My wife and I voted at 8AM and we saw a lot of white guys in their power suits and a lot of soccer moms in their high-end yoga gear, along with a parking lot full of high end SUV's, BMW's, ect. I could be wrong, but I suspect just about all of them were college educated and all appeared to be white. Trump will lose to Ciinton in MN, but I suspect my little district voted Trump (it usually does go Republican) and there are probably a lot of little districts in America that had polling stations that looked a lot like the one I voted at. Hardly 'rural America'...20 minutes from Minneapolis.
My college educated sister voted for Trump. Her husband has two Masters Degrees and works in finance, and I'm pretty sure he did, too.
Philly suburbs. Most of their neighbors and friends voted Trump.

Please. When has anything been Obama's fault or responsibility? Have you heard the media call our semi-stagnant economy "Obama's Economy," even after seven years? How about "Obama's Wars" in Libya, Syria, or Iraq?

Trump was bragging about sexual assault, which is a crime, and it was immediately followed by lots of women confirming that he did what he stated he did. Sexual assault. Lewinski on the other hand was a willing blowjobber.

I never voted for Bill either.

It appears that Hillary might just be guilty of some pretty serious crimes herself. There were certainly no 'walk on water' candidates on either side tonight. I voted with my gut and my conscious. I will be very happy for all of us if Hillary does in fact, lose.

Obama didn't go around sexually assaulting women, bragging to some fluffer as a 59 year old man that he can grope pussies, promise to violate US law and the Geneva Conventions by torturing, throwing policy on nuke proliferation on the shitter by suggesting Japan and Korean can get their own bombs, pushing a racist birther conspiracy, asking a foreign power to hack his opponent's emails, calling in to radio shows pretending to be his own press agent, and on and fucking on.
Nah.... Obama bombed Libya, bombed Syria, bombed Pakistan, and Biden's pet Ukrainian Poroshenko bombed east Ukraine. This after he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for not being George W Bush. The US is still in Afghanistan plus we have combat forces back in Iraq.

We have a US Army battalion in the Suwalki gap, the border between Poland and Lithuania. What the fuck is a US Army battalion doing in the gap between Kaliningrad and Belorus? Is that going to scare the Russians? Probably not. ( http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/28/politics/ ... war-front/ )



Hillary talked of imposing a "no fly zone" in Syria. Risking a nuclear war with Russia. That's not "tough" it's crazy. What national interest does the US have in Syria? The Saudis and Qataris are stirring up this shit, let them fight this battle.



Trump talks of talking to world leaders. Hillary wants to prove who has the bigger dick.


People worried about the Donald talking of "grabbing them by the pussy" over a decade ago but blew off this sociopathic moment about Khaddafy...




That's like Bush making fun of Karla Faye Tucker pleading for her life. Bush caught hell for it. Clinton got confronted about her joke about Khaddafy and made some banal remark about "unconfirmed rumors". Some Statesperson she was...

150,000,000 American women and the Democrats worked to nominate this sick fuck?

Give the GOP some credit, they tried to stop Trump. The Democrats fiddled with the primaries to get her nominated.

I didn't vote for Trump, but I absolutely paused there in the booth. HRC, really? I could have voted for Trump if he wasn't Trump. I appreciate how he cross-threaded the whole of everything with hating on the Iraq invasion, liking this - hating that kind of random with respect to the political orthodoxy. But he was Trump. Also, it bothers me that an opposing foreign government successfully manipulated an electoral outcome with hacks and leaks.

But now that he is in...hey I'll root for him to succeed. I'm a white male so I'll do fine.

One prediction for the next 4 years, is that in the near future little green men will cross into the Baltic states and unrest will appear, as the "native Russians" are suppressed and Putin comes in to rescue his tribe members. In short, Ukraine/Crimea again.Trump has clearly signaled he'll look in the other direction, and in foreign policy it is all about signals. You saw it here first!

The sheer amount of disbelieving but hurt from Democrat voters is unbelievable. Some are acting like Trump just stole their last candy bar, took one bite, and threw it in the trash.

The southern strategy worked again. If anyone is going to seriously fuck up the country it's Pence and his fall back to American Christian Sharia Law.

I hear 'how can I teach my son to be a man' 'what am I supposed to tell my daughter'.... You raise your kids, and teach then their values, not the government.

Take a deep fucking breath. Everyone is the same person they were yesterday.

RE: the Great Wall of Donald concept. Not going to happen, of course, and he's smart enough to know that. However, what I do think is going to happen, is organized crime (in the form of gangs and especially those whose origins are south of the border) can stand-by as he is going to hit them hard. Especially if Rudy gets the nod as AG. Love Rudy or hate him, he's got a proven track record of cleaning up the NYC mafia as a DA and then the NYC streets when it was a shithole.

This is my favorite bit of hysterical stupidity. If someone thinks this outcome is so bad that leaving the country is warranted, moving to Canada makes no sense. That would be like standing on your back porch when your house is on fire.

We should involve him as often as possible before he goes on his next rafting trip and it's too late.

Well, Tim is both a Lib and a great outdoorsman, so Canada may be a viable option from his perspective.

Wouldn't moving to Mexico be a better way to show disgust with Trump than moving to Canada?

Got a call from a dear friend in Russia today. A great big hearty congratulations on finally having a leader with a spine.
