I had a lunch today with a big variety of people..puerto rican,,hispanic, hard cores,,gay..etc

NO WAY Trump wins..it just won't be.  A lot of these folks support Bernie, but realize it's a no contest,,he can't win and more importantly he can't defeat Trump.

First time since  Ray Gun that i vote to oppose someone rather than for some one

Apologies for resurrecting this thread...it didn't end well last time.  I've never been so nerved up about an election.  I can't wait for this one to be behind us.

Past due to get my passport renewed. My best hope is the destruction is not too permanent and this election puts a fire under some real, quality leaders to step up and not leave it to the dregs like we had to choose from. Come on: Carson, Christie, Clinton, Rubio, Cruz, Trump! Johnson?? Even Sanders was a weak prospect in many ways, though I sure wish he had beaten Clinton

I'm really worried as to what the future might hold. We could see decades of progress in environmental and social policies undone in just a few years.

A little bit like swaggering around the flight deck under the "Mission Accomplished" banner don't you think?   He'll have his chance.

Just Laughing at the "experts" that were predicting a 1000pt drop Tuesday night. Looks like the market is set for another good day today.

It actually did drop. The DOW futures were down over 800 points at one point when I saw them around midnight. Then Carl Icahn bought over a billion dollars worth, along with other Trump billionaire supporters which likely caused a short squeeze to shoot it back up. Many traders jumped in on the momentum. We'll have to see, but I suspect the rally is not going to be long for this world once reality sets in.

I read an article written by Matthew Dowd(Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa) this morning that sort captured some of my own sentiments regarding the election.  The gist being that the left had really blown it with the closed minded judgmental approach to Trump supporters.  I'm willing to give this guy a chance.  Ultimately, we all want the best for our country. 

Is anyone willing to share their thoughts on volunteering opportunities? Rather than sulking,  I'd prefer to get involved and at least give this "Make America Great Again" thing a shot.  It's just too important to sit on the sidelines and bitch about Trump.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Attention all whimpering weeping butthurts ^^^^^ PAY ATTENTION TO THIS !!!

Nice demonstration of two ways to encourage dialogue going forward. ^^

World's (probably) not going to end, and ideally checks-and-balances will continue to work as designed at least for a bit longer, but I'd anticipate some pretty wild pendulum swings on both foreign and domestic policy over the next 4, and at least initially some generalized emboldened fringe jackassery. 
Lots of pent-up emotion on all sides; maybe legalizing pot IS the way to go.

First rule:  be good.  Second rule:  if you can't be good, be safe.

I love these folks justifying their racism and bigotry and ignorance because those meanie librulz typed mean things on the internet. As if the right has been so civil.
