Has this election season changed America forever? If you think so, then how?


Charges of election rigging, infiltration by the "Russians," troves of e-mail leaks, inflammatory rhetoric from both parties, and outright fraud are all topics making headlines. Add in the real violence we're seeing; violence that includes destruction of campaigning materials, graffiti, and several fire-bombings. It's become something different than a "normal" American election cycle. With so much corruption exposed from the Washington insider community, those of us on the outside are forced to ask ourselves and our future new leaders, if it's possible to go back to what we knew beforehand.

    Will a squeaky clean candidate matter if partisanship continues to be the primary focus? The two party system by default doesn't leave room for important qualities like honesty and integrity.

    I guess since its not a legal requirement then you're probably right. Good observation.

    Polling shows Comey and his remarks meant little in the swing states - Hillary counted on them and Trump caught her napping

    Your #2 is the absolute truth, the reality, that the Progressive/Left agenda cannot see or refuse to admit, maybe they think that would be akin to saying Capitalism, or earning what you make (IE - work for a living) has value, has meaning.

    Yes but wikileaks has made the contribution of exposing corruption in media and political machines and politicians in power...This use to be the primary job of a free media - "freedom of the press". They have been discredited and it is a good thing.

    I think this past election if anything taught us that the major media outlet should be suspect as to the information they relay to the TV viewers. I would hope that this will changed for the future presidential election cycles.

    I see "leaking" information as the new, albeit sensationalist, way of the future news cycle - I expect to see Republican databases hacked subtly in a counter attack someday

    Hello people!!! my name is Anny Johnson....( cybersailor101@gmail.com) is very reliable and very trustworthy. Recently I had an account hacked by a very angry, manipulative ex-boyfriend. He had changed my Facebook password and I no longer had access.

    Term limits plus other guidelines would work better - such as once you hold public office, you can never become a lobbyist, or putting term limits on judges also

    Really, is that still all you liberals can do, call people who disagree with you racists, homophobes, sexists, basket of deplorables? That's one of the biggest reasons you lost the election, people are sick of your now transparent tactics.

    Missy, your views are the results of what you've been fed by the media. In times like this, my advice is to step back, and assess what just happened. One way Is to list on paper what you believe to be true and what is "real". Then ? Your sources.

    Or just maybe people will see that America can be a better place once we relieve Washington of all the stagnant water (drain the swamp)

    Very open-minded approach Janice. I think that Congress is just starting to realize how much power they ceded to the Oval Office under President Obama - now that power is scaring them and the rest of America - my question is why now?

    Thanks for weighing in, but I strongly disagree with your statement. America will change a lot once we have a businessman in office - not because it's Trump, but because business people are hardwired to fix problems, not kick them down the road
