    Well thanks, this attitude is why America threw the Democrats out.

    I hope your therapy of telling fairy tales will work in making the imaginary monsters go away. If not, take Ritalin.

    When you remove civics...when you preach and teach social and cultural egalitarianism as law...when you lower standards to the point where EVERYONE is not only pushed toward but is accepted to a university. When when when...people tend to become a little dim.
    The electorate is only as great as the culture and society from which it springs...garbage in...garbage out.

    Ritalin is mainly used for ADHD. Not for psychotic symptoms in general.

    Yes. Continue to insult and denigrate those who disagree with you.

    Unfortunately, we were given the poorest of choices for President.

    You may be gullible, compliant and distracted. You are not alone. Just don't drag the rest of us down with you.

    You may also suffer from your own various insecurities, projecting them on others, while denying they exist within yourself.

    Do you think that Clinton was to be the cure for whatever disease ails this country?

    Just like the Messiah?

    Our Political class is the disease.

    Trump is not the cure.

    Your party has lost it's way and with it you have lost our support.

    Be that as it may, were Trump to have obtained but five percent fewer votes in the "battleground" states, he wouldn't today be POTUS. Consequently, to win, Trump needed not only the majority of his voters but every last one of them.
    Margins of victory examples:
    • Michigan 0.3 percent -- Trump 47.6%, Clinton 47.3%
    • Wisconsin 1 percent -- Trump 47.9%, Clinton 46.9%; Difference: 27,257 votes
    • Pennsylvania 1.2 percent -- Trump 48.8%, Clinton 47.6%; Difference: 68,236 votes (99 percent reporting)
    • Florida 1.2 percent -- Trump 49%, Clinton 47.8%
    • Minnesota 1.5 percent -- Clinton 46.4%, Trump 44.9%; Difference: 44,470 votes
    Were Trump to have had approximately a combined five percent fewer votes from across those five states, he'd have lost.

    No party is supposed to do so, at least with regard to one's financial fortunes. Similarly, no one is supposed to look to the government or a political party to secure one's financial fortunes. That is one's own job and the way to secure one's financial fortunes is to simply follow the long tried and true model that's existed since at least this country implemented public education for grades K-12.

    What is that model? This:
    1. Go to school and master the content and skills taught.
    2. Use that mastery to go to college, obtain a good paying job, or to go into business for oneself, preferably the latter.
    Time and time again, I've asked individuals whom I've met and heard gripe about what wasn't on that individual's behalf done by this or that party, politician, appointed leader or group thereof, the first question I ask them is "what kind of student were in in school." Without exception, the answers I get range from "slightly above average" to "not good." Well, with as one's foundation, it's no wonder that one finds it hard to "make it." Such individuals (and presumably their parents) didn't establish the groundwork that'd have best enabled them to "make it," to say nothing of easing the challenge of doing so. After all, very few folks are born with "it" made for them; thus for almont nobody is "making it" easy.

    The states he flipped have been badly damaged by our long standing trade and immigration policies.


    That was not stupid of those voters. That was a realistic judgement on which candidates policies was in their best interests.
