We can all agree that debates & protests surrounding Trump have brought out 'the bad' in many people - including me - and NONE of us is appreciating them as much as we maybe could. Today there are more protest marches across the country in a call for Trump to release his tax returns - as he promised during his campaign. Since I am a firm believer in the 'Law of Attraction', I know that there is always 'good' that has the potential to come out of all of life's contrasts that we attract to ourselves - if you can find it.
Has anyone noticed any good, yet? I've noticed a couple things:
1) It has awakened & united people across cultures, races and belief sets both in the US and across the globe to focus against common unwanted circumstances. Meaning: conservatives, liberals and everyone in between ARE capable of uniting. I don't think we really realized that we could do that before.
2) It has set people FREE with regards to speaking honestly & frankly to each other. I don't think we realized just how stifling it has been to keep up our PC profiles. While this aspect may not seem very desireable - in the end, I think it is good because it clears the air and mixes ideas up whether we like it, or not. Diversity is a very good thing.
3) Not all Trump supporters see everything he says or does as being the perfect thing in any given circumstance. He has some pushback within his own base (and they are not all liberal pacfists); plus, I've even collected a handful of 'regret' comments. There are many more up on Twitter. I don't collect those.
Has anyone else noticed anything that has been happening on the bright side?
Two more good things... Melania & Ivanka have both been doing Okay jobs with what they have to work with.
2) I have notice precious little "speaking honestly", although the "frank" part is certainly apparent.
4) At least some of the Trump haters have apparently decided that the world will not end because their candidate lost.
Those are both very good points, LoL! I have actually never thought that Trump would end the world. Even if he manages to dig us into WWIII - that isn't the end of the world, its just life and 'how things went' this time around. I'm not afraid of fighting or death like so many people are. There are purposes in this world for those evil things.
What I hate are the dividing factors that Trump is so good at manipulating and making worse - although, I sure as hell don't want to go to war just because he reacts to egotistical impulses and potentially fake news. I'm pretty convinced that there is only one government no matter what political party's puppet is in that office. The shadow government are master manipulators, and I find it difficult to believe that all this hype is an accident.
Yeah, I voted for Hillary - but on election night while we were all waiting for the election to be called; I was actually excited about 'who was going to win'. I even wrote a couple questions; because I didn't think (at first) that there were any glaring, unusual reasons for him to win the election. At that time, I honestly thought that 'the majority' of you must have so much confidence in him for a reason; and I was fully-prepared to support Trump.
However, after hearing how many people stayed home; and what CONTINUED to come out of the the mouths of the majority of people who came out to vote for Trump - my opinion changed drastically over about a week.
Election to close to call in early swing state results! OMG!!!

A fun political question: What advice do you have for President-Elect Donald Trump?

I've seen some pretty gnarly posts from anti-Trumpsters as I have seen from T-fans. There has admittedly been more emphasis on the 'frank' as opposed to 'honest' part of things. That will change, eventually - maybe. None of us are angels - and again, it isn't the anti-Trump crowd who lobbied for non-PC status, LoL!
Well, "end the world" might be an exaggeration. A small one you understand!
But when people end friendships of familial relationships because someone voted for Trump that's over the top in a big way. Thankfully, such nonsense seems to be ending.
I'd like to think that is coming to an end, too - although, people end important relationship over things like religion. So, I guess any heated topic is capable of dividing & conquering.
I actually read a blog post by a woman who had been asked for advice for two girlfriends who were on opposite sides of the Trump spectrum. She advised that they not talk about politics anymore; and on election day, go out for lunch together, stop by the polls on the way home - and cancel each others vote out. I thought that was pretty good advice.

Why are Clinton and Trump the front runners this election year?I'm baffled. According to polls, 70% of Americans say we are headed in the wrong direction. Yet, we have Clinton ahead in the Democratic primary. More over, on the GOP side, this was supposed to be the year of the people against the...

Alright I have had it. The protests following Trump are wrong. Should Americans support them?I am sorry but together burning the American flag and waving the Mexican and chanting Viva Mexico has me troubled. Not rock n roll protests but rocks and stones and fire. I say this legitimizes Trump. He...

Some are saying that the defiant protests over the election are undermining the authority of the Ayatollah and his government and may make future protests more likely and harder to control whether or not the immediate goal of a recount or another election is achieved.
