FOR The mother effin WINNN
i'm very very glad i don't live there. it's sad to see people outwardly showing hate and disgust for their fellow americans.
you're all on the same team, whether you like it or not. the success of the economy while you get old and useless is going to depend on these people you despise so much, maybe it's time to change your tune.
This outlines the major problems with this country and its political system perfectly; the fact that the entire checks and balances system is now one party scares the hell out of me. Putting this circus under control of a massive egomaniac with no prior experience and who has no idea what long term effects his decisions will make is putting the country into territory that can really cause massive worldwide negative effects we may never recover from.the division i refer to is more to do with the two party system and the media.
the right accuse the left of being business destroying commie bastards
the left accuse the right of being ignorant racist low iq bottom feeders
there is no middle ground, and the system is designed to eliminate it
the republican house sat for years and years and years and gleefully destroyed any legislation the democratic president attempted
if the house had gone democrat this election you can rest assured they'd do exactly the same to the republican president
they'd revel in it
that's awful, and bad for progress, and bad for the country.
now there is a republican president and house and senate, one has to wonder whether there will be any checks to legislation presented, or if they'll just push through anything they can knowing damn well they may lose the privilege.
that could again prove to be a dangerous thing.
i'm interested to see how this all unfolds as the path taken by the USA in the next four years is very likely to have a dramatic effect on both my country and the economy of my province.
...now that we've gotten what we wanted.
I can't see how the US system is "democratic". Democrats had 700k more votes than the Liberals, yet, because of that electorial system, Trump still won. It's a very weird system...I don't like Trump, but seeing "DEMOCRATS" protesting the results of DEMOCRATIC elections speaks very bad about them.
Differences in electoral systems does not mean lack of democracy. One day it was chosen by mayority and it can be changed by majority.I can't see how the US system is "democratic".

Here in Spain, the candidate that has the most votes doesn't necessarily gonna be president if he cannot negotiate with the rest of the parties.
Do you actually think that US election system is non democratic?? That is nuts!
Democracts accepted the electoral system (or they would had, at least, try to change it), they knew the rules of the game, they played the game, they lost the game... Now they are wipping...
That my friend is a no-no ...
PS: I would have voted for Hillary... I would have never gone to the streets to protest for an unliked outcome, that is just wrong. plain wrong.
Eggxactly!, and if the biggest party fails, then a smaller party could be chosen by the King...It's the same here as in Spain I guess. Multiple parties, the biggest party can lead the negotiations first, if it fails, the King appoints somebody else etc. But in the end, a coalition has to be formed, representing the majority of the voters.
