I doubt that this has anything to do with Hillary Clinton any more.
It has more to do with the divisive exclusionary racist misogynistic anti-minority nonsense that Trump based his campaign on.
It looks like half of the U.S. doesn't seem to care for that junk so much.
Nope, not much at all.
With guns so prolific, it'll be a wonder if he doesn't get himself shot.
He'll need to go all ISIS and surround himself with human shields, I suspect.
It is, of course, more complex than this. I have, for instance, one old friend, more just an acquaintance now, who is a diehard Catholic. He's educated, intelligent, not white, not racist at all, and extremely conservative. Trump's anti-abortion stance, among a few other things, led him to support Trump. We do have a significant religious population here who wholeheartedly rejects a lot of what the Democrats stand for. I've no doubt that the Catholic block and other members of the Christian Right had a strong influence on the outcome of the election... and not necessarily because of racism.
It will die down. they are only destroying the cities anyway. The fact that they think the US as a whole gives a shit about Cali is just kinda funny tho. A lot of people would be happy to see it float out to sea.
I think you're correct. We fought one war already over secession. I don't think anyone is prepared, mentally or otherwise, to fight another. And I don't think that the rule of law here supports secession. However, I think I would like to see the breakup of the U.S. I'm sick of the divisiveness, and I'm beginning to think that reconciliation of these opposing sides simply isn't possible. I don't see signs that it will end any time soon. Maybe in another 20 years, the balance will finally have shifted enough towards one side or the other.
I've seen several calls for unity so far from celebrities and other speakers on the Left. My response to these is that unity isn't good enough. It's a nice sentiment but it does nothing to assuage the fears that Trump has stoked, fears about his intentions, his agenda, or his capabilities. We don't owe him an open-mind or a chance to do the job. Trust and respect have to be earned, and he has done nothing yet to deserve those things. I reject the calls for unity; instead, the priority for every citizen now should be vigilance. The voters have given Trump the rope; now we need to make sure that he doesn't hang us all with it.
I've also given it some thought, and today I signed one petition for the abolition of the Electoral College. I understand the purpose of it, but I think it's time we moved in a different direction. I don't know that direct election of the President would be any better, but the fact that a person can win a majority of the Electoral votes and not win the popular vote is absolutely intolerable. At minimum, the institution needs reform.
