- Thanks for the Memories
I've never been through an election cycle where there was this much vitriol and deep down hate.
We so needed to move forward in the world. So many important issues that need addressing - global warming, jobs, the economy, pandemics, etc. But we are so divided right now, we'll be hobbled for quite some time

Being divided certainly has been causing problems - especially since the Republicans in Congress won't work across the isle. Without that you don't have a functioning democracy.
"We so needed to move forward in the world. So many important issues that need addressing - global warming, jobs, the economy, pandemics"
Hillary would have addressed these, Trump won't.
This country has survived fighting for our independence with the world power of the time, another war with England, The Great War, World War II, The Depression, assassinations of our leaders, The Cold War, Nixon/Watergate, a brutal Civil War, 911, and many other tragic occurrences. Donald Trump will not be the one who takes us down. America has a spirit that cannot be conquered by one man.
As ridiculous as I believe many of the opinions and predictions, they prove by the very right you have to voice them, we are built to withstand greater adversaries than Donald Trump
Most of the conservatives I work for/with seemed underwhelmed by Tuesday's results.

I still have my Feel the Bern and Bernie for pres button that is covered by a hand drawn Hillary H and arrow (and "Hillary") that I wear on my purse every time I go into town.
My community went for Hillary. Trump winery is down the road from where I live.
His own party didn't' believe it and thought they would force a Jeb Bush or the like down our throats. We said no more - we gave Bush 8 years and then Obama 8 more, it wasn't and isn't working. If it has to be taken apart, so be it.

Above all, he's made lots of racist statements about minorities. Absolute total deal killer for me.
He has made authoritarian, fascist comments and expressed admiration for dictators. Can he be controlled? German politicians thought they could control Hitler. You know how that went. He solved a lot of economic problems & the German people loved him for it - the ones who weren't tortured or killed, that is. People are getting tired of the Hitler comparisons, but they're so striking they're hard to avoid. And a lot of those comparisons would work with any dictator. That's why we feel we've lost our democracy.
Also, his erratic, impulsive, uncontrolled, vindictive personality is a real danger as a head of state.
My biggest problems about him, my fear and revulsion come from non-idealogical issues. It's way beyond that.
You have voted for a monster.
It is on you.
All that has made America great, he will destroy.
It is on you.
Follow the links. You are dead wrong.
You drank the cool-aid. You were conned. You may not know what you have wrought - I do not know how long it will take for you to realize this but realize it, you will.
Look, I get it, you all underestimated him and are pissed. He embodies everything you hate. He's not my favorite person either but again, and I can't say it enough, for me he is still a better choice than Hillary – all the Hitler comparisons aside and being told I’m conned will never change that. To me, he confirmed it by winning. He outworked her, had a far better strategy, allocated and spent his resources more wisely, understood the game, and won. Every battle is won before it’s fought. He knew it, and the look on Hillary’s face confirmed she realized it too late.
All of that resonates with me as a far more capable person. He's not Hitler, he's a manager, that's all the president is, no more no less, and America is sick of poor managers trying to interject their ideology, bottlenecking progress. I’ve been down this road before when I voted for Obama and was told the country was doomed. Go march on Washington, it’s your right, and I support you because protest is a great thing in America. I would give my life for each and every one of you to maintain that right regardless if I agree with the cause of your protest.
The people spoke by way of process that is unique to America and just one of the things I believe is great about America. Our framers were leery of a pure Democracy and for good reason.
