    Well, yes, Thank God.  Figuratively and literally.

    Just keep in mind, this is a win with an asterisk.  The best thing about it is also the worst thing about it - we get a Trump presidency.  There will be fallout, and it will hurt the GOP in future elections for some time.

    I'm just over here hoping that we are able to lock up the Supreme Court with Constitutionalists for our lifetime.  That alone would be worth it.

    But today, we celebrate.

    I'm no fan of Trump.  The best thing I can say about the outcome is that at least HRC lost.

    I'm no Trumper but my main concern was the Supreme Court. It wasnt so much a vote for him as it was a definite damn vote against Hillary.

    And I like the idea of upsetting the locked in political old timers and so called "experts." Dropping in on CNN and seeing the woeful spoiled anti-American brats curled up in a ball was priceless. We are now going to see the loony left at their worst. There have already been threats of "Wevowution" on the net. Oh yeah, with what? A real revolution requires guts, hardship, privation, risk and sacrifice, none of which our current crop of SJP's have in any measure. They are not beat down Russian or Chinese peasants trying to overthrow a crushing regime and lashing out against very real oppression.

    If he doesn't use this 4 years wisely, there will never be a comeback for the right.

    I just pray the Secret Service is on their A game especially between now and January. However, Heaven forbid, even if Trump did die in office, Pence is a solid replacement unlike those nightmares Biden and Kaine.

    Even if Hillary shat cotton candy and floated an inch above the earth whoever she went, the Benghazi debacle still enrages me and on that alone I would have voted against her.

    My son told me that he and all his unit were definitely not going to re-enlist if she was elected. That was my only consolation if she had won. Now its all in the air but i still hope he comes on home when his time is up.

    Heck, if he can replace Scalia, and potentially Ginsburg (83) and Kennedy (80) with young Constitutional Literalists, the GOP could afford to take a decade off to find themselves and their purpose.

    Not until January.  At least until the electoral college votes, and then they would not dare to hit him, for fear of right-wing Pence in the white house.

      I'd.....actually not minding seeing Pence take his place.....

    But I'm grateful of the results.    Not so much for Trump as against Hillary.    The judges will be the best thing out of this.

    However I'll say as I said before:  This term, the house of cards is going to crack, and a lot of the patchwork Obama did to keep things together is going to be exposed.    It WILL be spun that all these problems are the GOPs fault and they messed up the perfect plan Obama had set up..................and the Millions of sheep will believe it.

    Oh yeah, I saw plenty of that going on my facebook feed last night.   Apparently one of my best friends from childhood has gone full retard.   He started alternately posting about his plans to move to Canada and/or shoot Trump.   Hope he doesn't end up in jail.      I'm not happy that Trump won,  but I am happy that Clinton lost.  I wrote myself in on my ballot because I couldn't even stand Johnson/Weld on the libertarian ticket this year.    I just hope that Clinton finally croaks of whatever degenerative condition she probably has before she has another chance to run again.   The sooner that criminal psychopath is out of the national limelight, the better.   

    Should make for an interesting day at work today too.   We've had one guy that hasn't shut up about the evils of Donald Trump for the last 6 months.    I despise Trump and was never going to vote for him anyway,  but I still wanted to throttle the guy just to get him to stop talking about Trump and the election.

    I like to be optimistic, but you may well be right. 

    As far as the blame game...  If the conservative faction of the GOP can stack SCOTUS deep, the popular opinion can do what it will for the next 25 years.  Screw the sheep.

    OK, so I went around work last night singing "Ding Dong The Witch is Dead".  Call me irresponsible. 

    Honestly, Trump can't do any worse than Obama (who didn't just lower the bar, he laid it on the floor!) and might actually accomplish something worthwhile.  (And no, I'm not gonna hold my breath for that, either.)

    But I was an intel geek for a lot of years, and if I'd compromised 0.01% of the classified information that HRC did, they'd have locked me UNDER Leavenworth, lost the key, and fed me rice and fish heads on alternate Thursdays.  So, seeing someone (anyone) peeing in her Cheerios is a good thing.

    I would definitely have voted for him 'against Hillary,' but not in the primaries.  He is too much of a 'moral values' Republican, and that faction is an increasingly small and irrelevant wing of the party.  Dragging the GOP further that way will not be productive in the long term.

    So Trump hasn't said or done anything yet, and here Russia is already wanting to be friends.



    Anyone else feel that that already qualifies him for a nobel peace price, compared to Obama getting it for... What again?

    From this side of the pond all I can say is that I'm so glad it wasn't Clinton. What I saw of her campaign it was a rerun of the one we saw here in our EU referendum, where she tried to bully us into staying in the EU so it make me happy to see her defeated again. After the results of the UK's 2015 general election, EU referendum and the US 2016 presidential election where all resulted in unexpected outcomes I find myself wondering whether we're starting to see a major shift away from the so-called 'centrist' politically correct politicians.

    Well, I know one Brit who was happy about the Trump victory.



    I think Milo had a bit to drink before he vulgarly ate Fox news' ice cream (apologies in advance for the first bit of the video), but it was interesting to see how quickly the media cleared out when their chosen candidate didn't get the presidency.

    Just keep in mind, this is a win with an asterisk.  The best thing about it is also the worst thing about it - we get a Trump presidency.  There will be fallout, and it will hurt the GOP in future elections for some time.

    I would caution that line of thinking, the reason I say that is because that was the same thing that was said about Trump as a Republican candidate. The vast majority of never Trump people made the statement that not only was he a bad candidate that would loose us the presidential election but also the house, senate and supreme court. None of that happened, supreme court is still in question but I think we can all agree that Trump has much better odds of putting up conservatives, than Hillary would have.

    I guess my only point is that like anything we don't know, but I've been optimistic about a Trump presidency for quite a while. You guys who have me on Facebook have probably seen a fair amount of my points but I've suspected this basic result since early/mid primary season pretty much down the line. And I was called an idiot by some because I disagreed with what was being said. I'm not gloating that I was right, I could still be proven wrong by his actions as POTUS.

    That said I think he was the right candidate for the current situation and I've got hope and a fair amount of background evidence that he's at least going to try to move the country in the right direction despite the constant pushback he's gotten.

    Just my 2 cents, but I wouldn't take the time to temper your resolve. It's time to move forward and push to make appropriate changes to return our country to where it should be. And we should take special care not to "punish" those that disagree with us, but rather ensure we're following the constitution as it was written and push the legislation and court in that direction as much as possible.

    Well, since the OP I've had a day spent at work with a largely democrat and left leaning bunch of co-workers.  I could hardly contain myself looking at all the long faces and hearing the predictions of everything from imminent doom to marching in the streets with pitch forks and fomenting a revolution.   :cool     One or two asked me what I thought about the election and I told them, "My mom was right.  She always told me anybody could grow up to be president of the United States. "   :cool     One asked me if I was scared what a Trump presidency might mean and I said,  " I still remember the Cuban missile crisis.  I've already lived through the Bill Clinton administration, the George W. Bush administration and the Barack Obama administration.  At this point in my life I don't scare worth a damn. ".   Evidently not the answer she hoping for.   :shrug
