    Now that the Electoral College has confirmed Trump, can the nation start to heal and work together?

    The Electoral College has confirmed Donald Trump as the next President.  Faithless Elector counts were 2 from Trump's totals and surprisingly 4 from Clinton's totals.  Even arch-rival John Kasich finally came around to express a need for unity now.

    The nation?

    See that's exactly what the liberal, msm, fake news media wants you to believe, that the nation is so divided and more importantly that liberals are some sort of majority. They're not! They never were and they never will be. It is all a facade created by the media and one reason they get away with it is the silence of the silent majority and the indifference of the majority of the electorate who never votes.

    Just like every other sensationalized wave of propaganda (fake news) the media reports on, global warming will destroy the earth, the Russians control who we elect, Republicans want to poison the environment and kill the elderly, all cops even black ones are out of control racists, this effort to paint Trump's election as illegitimate is nothing but expressed denial of the facts and the truth and the constitution out of their desperation in knowing that a Trump presidency is on the way to driving a wooden stake into the heart of bloodsucking liberalism and ending the reign of its villainous leaders like Hillary and Obama.

    For the nation to heal the disease needs to be cut out, not invited in!

      If liberals aren't the majority, how did Hillary get the majority of the popular vote? Face it: there are more people in this country who think like me than there are who think like you.

      Could it be because the illegals were allowed to vote in California?  Without them she would have not had the popular vote.

      As usual Lisa you make no sense at all - learn to think would you? The majority of a population is not based on 1/2 of the people who vote which is at best 50% of eligible voters therefore representing less than 25% of the population. DUH

      Don't taze me. You should also learn to think. There is no guarantee that the half that don't vote are conservative. Lisa Vollrath is correct.

      Straw man.Whether half that don't vote is anything means nothing...the fact they don't vote means no1 knows how they feel so you can't include them in a figure,Poll non voting public if u include them,common senseSo much for ur bookreadin.

      The argument over majority is moot - unless everyone is forced to both register and vote one way or the other, then no one will truly know.  Plus, people change sides on a regular basis or vote across party lines.

      My point exactly but you know liberals, instead of simply admitting they are wrong which they will never do they have to raise a strawman or change the subject.

    Keep in mind that many of the voters in this election were 14 to 16 years old when Obama was elected.  He is really the only President they have ever know.

    Combine that with all the college professors that teach them how great Socialism can be and it is no surprise as to how they think.

      You wouldn't know Socialism if it jumped up a bit you. Here's Socialism: fire & police departments; roads & bridges; public schools; military; post office; garbage collection; court system. All these, and more, are Socialist ideas.

      I wouldn't know Socialism because I have no desire to live that way.  I suspect you are a fan of Socialism because that is how you have lived your life.  Socialism is more like a hippy style of living where everyone is the same regardless of effort.

      socialism creates lazy people, stripping the wealth from those who work and handing it to those who don't.  I'd rather be rewarded for my hard work instead of my gains being given to someone else

      Lisa, socialism is only one step away from communism and socialism does not give us all of those benefits you mentioned. Obama and Hillary were taking us closer to communism.

      Lisa, you are ridiculous - YOU DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHAT SOCIALISM IS - TRY LOOKING IT UP! SOCIALISM advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the GOVERNMENT. Not what u said.

      You're confusing soialism with totalitarianism. Until Reagan, socialism was king. Aussie, UK, EU, Canada - all have socialism. In the USA, the military, police, roads, dams, forest dept, etc. are 'owned' by the government. That's socialism.

      Look up the definition. What dictionary are u using? You should have substituted reading a dictionary for the 10,000 books you read, maybe you'd have learned something.

      Americans have been miseducated as to what socialism is. Australia, Israle Western Europe etc. are all socialist democracies.

    They should be able to. The best that Obama did was to give us a very strong Republican government and the chance to make change that he had promised and didn't come through with. Wait a minute, maybe this is the change he promised.

      Yes Greg,thank Obama for bringing about the kind of change common sense people have longed for since he was elected which wasn't appointing communists as federal Czars&,race baiters in DOJ or justices with political agendas who create law

    Trump won the popular vote in 31 states 2 her 19 and DC.  62% to her 38%. 
    Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.  Hillary won California
          5,860,714 to Trump’s 3,151,821.  61.6% to 33.1%, exclusive of the other candidates.
    Thus California gave Hillary the popular vote for all states as claimed by the Democrats & their media stooges.

        But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783, & deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him w/ 57,113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states, 51.3% to her 48.7%.
         
        So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected president of the rest of the country, by a substantial margin.
         
        This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, 2 prevent the votes of any 1 populace state from overriding the votes of the others.
         
        Trump’s Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on & devised her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”.  This meant ignoring California w/ its huge Democrat majority & going after the states that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.
         
        At its lowest point since the civil war!  Could this mean the end of the Democrat Party?
        When the afternoon of January 20, 2017 arrives, the Republican Party will have:
        1)  The Presidency.
        2)  A majority of the House of Representatives.
        3)  A majority of the Senate.
        4)  Almost two-thirds of all the governors.
        5)  Total control of the statehouses in a two-thirds of all the states.
        6)  And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add a majority of the Supreme Court.
         
        The above has never happened before in American history.
         
        Think about this & let it sink in for a moment.
         
        And it's all because of 1 reason:
        Barack Obama forcing his extreme far-left agenda on an unwilling country by executive orders, left wing judges, & obsequious bureaucrats.
    Hello friends: Just sharing a share I received.

      I try always 2 remain neutral when it comes 2 "Party" but despite my efforts, it is undeniable that libs tend 2 blurt out rehearsed, & fabricated statements, have a bit of a tantrum..& then POOF, they're gone. They're such cowards.

    No, it appears we have a huge split, and it's due to ideology. On one side you have people with deep convictions, and tons of common sense, on the other you have people that actually do not see that we need change due to the countrys deeding problems. It's easy to hide from problems, if you are prone to do this. However, on the other hand those with strong common sense they do not have what it takes to push problems from their minds, and want problems solved, not discussed , not mulled over by committees. They want solutions, and can see we need change now.
