or the fact that the NRA beleives that Clinton will take away their guns, when the facts state that she will not be doing that

 

Trump just took Idaho, but Oregon is in Clinton's hands

I'm actually generally afraid for myself if Trump wins aside from the country too. Me being disabled and all, I'm not too keen on the guy who makes fun of a reporter with muscular problems and kicks a kid with cerebral palsy out of his rallies.

When Carter ran as an outsider, he at least came off as a good person. In fact, his Presidency kind of seems like a good person who just wasn't cut out for politics.

Trump? Fuck no. There's nothing that says "good" about him. I don't care how fresh he is. We're trading in corruption for bigotry.

Washington state is currently red in the NYT tracker. Have the votes from Seattle been counted yet or is there something else going on there?

This is the first time I am truly ashamed of my country. The fact that Trump is now likely to be our next President is more terrifying AND embarassing than anything I can recall in my life.

No use in being outraged anymore. What's done is done. It's time to understand what just went down and prepare yourselves accordingly.

Economy will probably tank due to a combination of repealing the ACA wholesale without any noted replacement, far-right austerity measures being implemented, and the global markets tanking due to lack of confidence in us. LGBT rights and women's health rights are probably on the chopping block both locally and all the way to the Obergefell and Roe. Expect things like more women's health clinics being closed and an uptick in religious discrimination against gay people in hiring and service. Russia is about to be that much more prominent on the world stage, and in general you'll probably see more hawkish policy in situations like Mosul. No nukes, though; that's dumb. Increase in deportation measures, increase in policing measures against blacks and Hispanics, and in general an emboldened alt-right/white nationalist wing means stay out of the wrong neighborhoods even more than you already do.

The best thing we can do in the short term is get out in midterms and flip the houses. Otherwise, prepare for another good 20-30 years of absolute fuckery due to outright Republican control of the entire government.

Honestly, if the worst comes, I don't want to hear any crying from any "Bernie or Bust" folks because they were warned of this ages ago and they didn't listen.

Lol don't put this all on the Bernie Bros; Any and all protest and third-party voters just fucked minorities and poor people over for the next generation. Must be nice.
