Bullshit. You see, now I am angry.

    America died on Nov. 8, 2016, not with a bang or a whimper, but at its own hand via electoral suicide. We the people chose a man who has shredded our values, our morals, our compassion, our tolerance, our decency, our sense of common purpose, our very identity — all the things that, however tenuously, made a nation out of a country.

We Americans elected Woodrow Wilson, a racist xenophobic terrible human being. Yet, despite that, we survived. For crying out loud, America elected Jackson, a guy who ran an honest to goodness genocide, and yet here we are. George W Bush ran the place for 8 years and we are still here. Nixon and all his baggage. The entire Whig Party. Coolidge did nothing, not a damn thing, as the entire global economy tanked and nearly ruined us... not to mention fucking up the 1927 flooding recovery. We as a county have had 10, maybe 12 good presidents tops; most have been mediocre men of various party and temperament. And we have had 10 or so that have been appallingly bad. Want to get started on the shit shows we elect in this country? Here you go.

This shit of liberals whining need to fucking stop. NOW. We got 11 months to build or we are fucked. FUCKED. If the Democrats lose a single state house in 2017, the Republicans will have the 75% of state houses needed to pass Constitutional Amendments. SIT THE FUCK DOWN PEOPLE AND REALLY THINK ABOUT THAT ONE

Hillary was a bad candidate that ran a poor campaign. She did not pump up the Senate races, she did not excite the base and she was unable to close the election against a reality TV clown. So, now, we fight or we die.

Stop the fucking moping, make calls. Find the liberals in your state Democratic party if you want to fight back, get involved, get off the damn internet and FIGHT.
