Add my name to that list as well. You people here seem to recognise that there actually is a world outside of your borders with people who have a different mindset.

RE: President Trump: How The F**k Did It Happen?
Addressing the OP, there will be many post-mortem analyses as to the why, here is one that resonates with me.

Trump won because college-educated Americans are out of touch

"The most important divide in this election was not between whites and non-whites. It was between those who are often referred to as “educated” voters and those who are described as “working class” voters.

The reality is that six in 10 Americans do not have a college degree, and they elected Donald Trump. College-educated people didn’t just fail to see this coming — they have struggled to display even a rudimentary understanding of the worldview of those who voted for Trump. This is an indictment of the monolithic, insulated political culture in the vast majority our colleges and universities.”

Undecided

I better get out there and get in touch, even grope if I have to.

We are truly a divided nation.

A division I could live with is the Left Coast breaking off. California, Oregon and Washington state would make a great country. I won't go to Canada, I'm staying put.

A fracturing might be the only way for individual like minded states or groups of states to actually make progress in the direction they want, whether it be secularism or Jesusism.

In the above mentioned example, I'd highly suggest getting Nevada in on it for purely strategic reasons,

True fact.

In a way, that's not so surprising, fear is what has always led humanity (what does religion but exploiting people's fear ?), but that's still very sad that this is still the case in 2016...
That makes me even more worried that the far right side wins the french election next year since they are using the exact same strategy.

This is precisely what Hitler did.


Not really. Hitler promised return to the spirit of national unity, overturning Versailes treaty and ending disliked democracy. He indeed used fear (bolsheviks) but I would say that he mostly went with hope. Fear was used later when war with USSR took bad direction.


Quote: I know that trope is marched out all the time and probably too often it is a gross overgeneralization. But it seems right now that the only actual differences between Trump and Hitler are that Trump was never a painter and he didn't lose the first time he tried

Hitler was war hero (or not accounts wary, he did have a medal though) who was chosen by elites as someone easy to control. His popularity played a big role in him being chosen though.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Most trump supporters I meet liked gay people, hell one of the biggest trump fans was gay.
Transgender people aren't gay, they are people stuck in the wrong biological body, there are exceptions but mostly m to f and f to m trans people are heterosexual.

I'm sitting here realizing I have no fucking clue what Trump is actually gonna do. He doesn't give a shit about keeping any campaign promises. I think we are in for Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. At least it'll be interesting. Thanks Obama.
