I think most of us pretty much know who we are voting for at this point, so no matter who wins - lets let the cards fall where they may and look ahead: how will you start de-stressing after the hairy-scary national show is over? Will you be okay if your favored candidate loses? What about if they WIN? (Sometimes that's just as bad, ha!) Are we going to be able to continue living in relative peace with our neighbors; or are we going to war? Is there any hope in the future for America as a country at all?
sort by best latest
That sounds about right, ha! I'm thinking that politics are off both my viewing & reading lists for a least a couple weeks while whatever happens settles. :)
I like that, something to look forward to, perhaps: better job of choosing candidates. Its the every eight years interval that we have problems with. We choose candidates who are a direct opposition to the previous admin. Balance might help. :)
That is the truth no one wants to talk about, isn't it? The 8-year swing. We're creatures of habit and far more predictable than we'd like to think.
Good answer. I have often wondered by so many people who consider themselves to believe that God has things in control - don't relax and trust him, more. Obama & Hillary are not beyond God anymore than Trump & Palin or anyone else. I have no
You stole my thunder. ;) I was just about to post this comment: It's a big mistake to credit either candidate with more power than God. He may let you have your way. Take the counsel of His Word and trust Him.
I could never support the illegal-alien Obama, Israeli dual-citizen Bernie Sanders or that lesbian, commie, witch, crook Hillary. They all three are big fans of that Luciferian Saul Alynski.
Ditto! (Well, not the Chicago Cubs winning part - but, congrats!) I may not like who gets elected; but I have actually felt a ping or two of patriotism even when Bush W. was in office. The Prez does NOT define this country 4 me - nor does any party.
What defines the U.S.A. for you?
Wars, riots, lies from our political elite?
Payments by the government to almost half of the U.S. population?
Rigging of elections?
Am correct on any of these? Am I getting warm?
Await your reply
This country was founded with a common goodwill for all mankind as noted by the significant freedoms that we DO still have. LEAVING & complaining from a distance as U do, John - or threatening to incite civil war as Sgt P has - R Ur 'rotten fruit
Catherine, it wasn't founded on "common" good will. It was founded on individual freedom, and a limited government. Now we have fewer freedoms and a tyrannical government. Not complaining, stating facts. Only the enslaved support their masters.
What drama, our government is TYRANNICAL, LoL! You wouldn't know what that feels like any more than being 'enslaved'. Things are obviously overly-hyped in your mind, like others. Gee, I wonder how that happened? Relax, the end is NOT nigh.
Gunny I guess you would have moved to Canada in Clinton won. My choice was Trump by the way.
you are absolutely time and humans wait for none.
I'm sure you were born with an abundance of common sense. It is amazing how much of that ACTUALLY FLOWS on both sides of the isle. :)
Yes, might be a good idea to wake up. Whose "new reality?" You live in SOUTH AFRICA!!
Paula, do you have any idea how much the USA forces other countries to do what the populace don't want. Besides I only returned to South Africa a year ago. I was in California and Texas for 11 years. My daughter is still in Texas.
So is it common knowledge in South Africa that Obama was born in Kenya like it is in East Africa?
I've already congratulated you Trumpsters elsewhere - but I would imagine you won't tire of hearing it for a while: congratulations. May the next four years be everything you've hoped for, and more. :)
Liberals, progressives, socialists, atheists and all commies can take comfort in the great likelihood President Trump will be the very last president elected by regular white-guys. He only won by a couple percentage points fellow comrades.
The absurd thing: you're very proud of that, LoL! "We militant-believers who worship God Almighty demonstrated our profound unhappiness by electing the most unappealing, fear-mongering, INSULTING jerk in the world to our highest office - HOOAH!"
Perhaps we can stave off the New World Order just a little longer. I hate Big Brother.
Gunny ~ It appears the Latin Vote is what carried Trump. Latinos are very conservative and deeply religious as a whole. They have never been part of the liberal camp and for the life of me I can't understand how the democrats ever thought different
I know citizens of Mexico are disappointed in Trump's victory but I couldn't care less.
New World Order, Gunny? I hope you are ready to bow to Russia. Putin is already salivating. And I thought it was China we had to worry about. How the world changes!
"Initially, most likely there will be quite a bit of civil unrest in urban areas." I worry about this no matter who wins - thus, this question. I'm hoping it will be a bit of a vent 'in the air' instead of toward people. There's always hope - always.
+++ Ain't that the truth... when it comes down to it.
President Reagan once said "Trust but verify!" which is what Trump must do. That lesbian, witch & crook Hillary is an out and out socialist(godless-communist) like BHO, Bernie Sanders & Saul Alynski.
I really worry about your extreme views, Tamara (way more than SP or OG). You seem like such an intelligent woman; and yet you talk like a brainwashed fanatic who can't see the forest for all the trees. Since WHEN are things so cut & dry & on
T is right, though. Conservatives are under attack. The facts are sad and it's stunning to see the bias in so-called news media. A balanced response to facts is impossible for them to grasp in their blind rage toward policies that benefit them!
Catherine, If you buy the propaganda dished out by the U.S. government, and government employees call you stupid for doing so, doesn't that make you think about your stance? Gov. employees who dish out propaganda think you are stupid for believing it
Hillary: lesbian, witch, and crook. And what's wrong with being a lesbian exactly?
Well Pat Robertson doesn't think lesbianism is all that sinful, but I can read and have read Romans chapter one(The AIDS Chapter) many times.
Notice how one-sided your views are: as if Conservatives are the only ones who are hammered by the media or the government or any other life concerns similar to your own. We're in this together and there is 'unfairness' from EVERY direction.
I left hubpages (when I was earning between $300 and $600 per month) because of Conservative trolls and bullies on this site. What are you talking about? I won't go near the forums now, and I delete all conservative commentators because they attack.
I will just keep the life going.
It is not racist to deport people who illegally enter and occupy our country. It really bothers me that so many people assume a Latino is an illegal alien. Most of them are here legally and have no concerns.
Are you going to start shooting anyone who voted for Hillary?
i believe we will see that. especially if orange-face starts ramping them up, which he so loves to do. just imagine....a big bully, all his life: has a million adorers at his fingertips, waiting for his every command. its frightening.
There are too many who speak of taking up arms if Hillary wins. I don't support this. Massive peaceful protests yes, armed insurrection , no. If Hillary wins, I do predict the rage toward her will boil over in bad ways.
I can also see it if Trump wins
You're going up against the militarized police, the army and the marines?
Can't wait to see how plays out, Gunny.
People with a cause can overthrow a tyrannical government of superior forces.
Been done many times in history.
Best of luck!
Do you actually BELIEVE that you are PART of the catalyst for 'end times' upheaval DOING GOD'S WILL - because, of course, God apparently DOESN'T actually control who wins any election. Peeps like you seriously need to read my spotlight hub about God.
The armed internal conflict will be started by Hillary & the Obamanites. Thank God for the right to "Keep & Bear(own and carry) Arms" so true-American patriots can defend themselves and their dwindling families.
Gunny, that starts, I might consider coming back to help freedom fighters.
By paying taxes and being silent, all citizens are doing is supporting their enslavement.
Vote for Trump!
You said you will demand civil war - now Hillary is the initiator? I'm not enslaved - and NEITHER of you are, either. You don't remotely know what that feels like. All you would be doing is imposing your fear-based beliefs on others thru force.
Catherine, just because you don't notice your chains, doesn't mean your not enslaved. 3000+ laws in a year, you can't be more free. And that's was just in 2015! LOL
You and your ilk are fearmongering fanatics. Democracy has ALWAYS been a process, and never a fast one. You want to believe that Dems R evil instead of the GOP intentionally inciting & manipulating conservative fears. Trump is a master of that.
My ilk has correctly showed the down fall of the U.S. over the last 40 years.
Because your "logic" can't follow the dots, well, as the architect for obamacare stated, "Americans are stupid",
I think he hit the nail on the head.
John, I gather from your comment that people are stupid to have insurance. I guess that fits in with the "I don't pay taxes because .... ("I'm rich; that would be stupid; I'm too handsome) fill in the blank.
You've 'showed' the downfall over the past 40 years? Whatever. You have blinders on and/or are brainwashed in fear as so many people are.
G.C. Don't agree with the civil war part. But agree with scripture. Rapture could happen any day
The blatant contradiction of both a demand for civil war and a scripture citation in the same post was exactly the kind of ironic, comedic relief I needed today
Jesus said to sell your cloak and buy a sword. He also stated "You must be born again."
A bunch of foolish democrats making the prediction that Trump's supporters would riot. GOT EGG ON YOUR FACES LMAO
