Feel free to just vent, say your peace, whatever, here. Here are mine: 1) Trump is a vile, disgusting human being. I was just telling a friend that he does not deserve the HONOR of running this country. I find him utterly despicable as a person. I've had a man in a position of power touch my genitals because he could. I've never gotten over it, and Trump's comments that he can do whatever he wants to women is something I can never forgive. This wasn't said by a young man, brash & full of testosterone & just being stupid. This was said by a man that was almost 60 years old. That's how he has lived his whole life. This wasn't a suddenly new position that an immature kid might grow out of. This is him. It makes me physically ill to think about it. 2) I PRAY that I am wrong about the direction this country will go under his..."leadership". I have never wanted to be more wrong in my life. I want to eat a plate of crow so large that I have to purge repeatedly to finish it. 3) Despite my feelings in 1), this is our president, like it or not. I do not respect the man, but I respect that the country, no matter how stupid and misguided I feel they are, has spoken. I will not refer to him by stupid nicknames, I will not call for his death, I will not lower myself to an elementary school level kid to get my point across. He's the President (elect). I'll call him by his title, even if I have to choke on it to say it. I am better than those that refer to our Presidents past and President future by anything other than the title he's earned, and by the name he received at birth. 4) Calling for obstructionism just to get even with Republicans for doing exactly that for the last 8 years is stupid. It was damaging to our country then, and it's damaging to our country now. I applaud Bernie (don't get me started on how much I wish he'd won the primary) for saying he will work with Congress to achieve what is good for the country and will fight for what is bad. This is how it should always be, and sinking to the levels displayed by the Republicans for the last 8 years is wrong. Two wrongs never make a right. 5) Saying that the "elitism" is what caused Trump to win is a fallacy to me. The numbers flat out say otherwise. He had WAY FEWER votes than Romney or McCain did. The country is not in love with this man...he didn't run away with the presidency. THIS LOSS IS ON THE DNC, PERIOD. If you are unhappy with the results, THEN DO MORE TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN IN 4 YEARS. The blue half of this country got complacent, and relied too heavily on what I will call "Purple People" to vote blue. This is Hillary's fault for not showing up in Wisconsin. 6) I find it ironic that those that are largely responsible for voting the man in, are the same ones that are likely to be most damaged by his presidency. Trickle-down economics does not work, never has, never will. The rich like being rich, and when they receive tax breaks, they're just going to take that money & keep it. They're not going to create new jobs with that money. History has proven this. I'm VERY fortunate that I work in an industry that is run by the rich getting richer (litigation support). It's quite possible that this presidency will be financially beneficial to me. I'd gladly trade that to have the next four years be financially beneficial to my fellow man. I am not rich by any standard, but I have all I need. I don't need more; plenty of others do. 7) IF this presidency creates a Supreme Court that results in my daughter losing her right to marry, I SWEAR TO GOD AND EVERYTHING HOLY, I WILL 100% CUT OUT OF MY LIFE ANYONE THAT VOTED FOR TRUMP. I pretty much know who's on that list (I don't believe Brian is actually, for any of you wondering, because I don't believe he votes--and even if he actually did vote, I don't know if he would have voted Trump). I cannot associate with people that actively participated in denying my daughter her right to the one thing she has been dreaming of her entire life that is a basic fundamental right we should all have. I just have to hope it never comes to that. I've forgotten plenty just in course of typing out this novel (I feel like I'm giving CF88 a run for his money, here!) and I'm sure I'll have more in the days to come. If you want to post here, please do, but keep it clean and don't troll. Basic rules of the board still apply.
