I still wake up some days and say: WHAT the FUCK happened?!?!!?

It would have been so much easier for all of us Americans and the whole world if Hillary had been inaugurated 45th president.

Is this our punishment for Vietnam, Abu Graib and slavery?
WTF?

I canít even imagine how cheated Hillary feels? Or also....how about Obamaís nominee for Supreme Court?

Why canít we send these fuckers in the GOP straight to hell to burn for all eternity?

FUUUUCCCCKKKK!!!!!!

6. Same. No doubt, a lot of it's due to the fact I rarely get a good night's sleep anymore...

thanks to having BLOTUS occupying the White House.

14. Both therapists and primary doctors reported

an increase in patients complaining of physical symptoms and sleepless nights due to anxiety as a result of the election. More than a year of this regime has only confirmed many of our worst fears.

I have seriously thought of leaving the country. But at 67 and going through a divorce, I'm not sure I have the energy to accomplish moving to another country by myself where I wouldn't be fluent in the language. Yet I'm very tempted. It would probably be France where I have friends and could lean on them for assistance in navigating French bureaucracy in getting a visa and finding an apartment.

It's a tough decision. My divorce won't be final until well after the November election, but I will need to start planning then for whether I'm going to stay here, move abroad, or at least move to a blue state.

16. Good luck with everything... wish leaving the country was an option for me.

Don't even recognize this country anymore. Keep thinking I'll wake up from this tRumpster fire to life as normal under President Clinton... then I'll turn to my wife and say, you're not gonna believe the insanely scary dream I just had!! Hopefully, the alarm clock will ring any second now!!

3. These Republicans plan well.

 

They are rich and they are organized, and they have all the money in the world to do long developed marketing strategies to divide and conquer the not rich to fight each other.

They are the directors and they care nothing about founding fathers or the constitution.

They are the greedy yet they claim Jesus.

They claim honor, yet they have not served.

They claim morality, yet they support a man devoid of morals.

They claim honesty...well fuck that.

12. K & R - Truth. And Rusty, they are also very patient.

They know that since they have access to vast resources, they can do their damage in steps - some steps large and some smaller. Looking back in my adulthood from Nixon on, I fear they have the long-term advantage - but hope I'm wrong for my grandkid's sake.

Perhaps I'm overly skeptical, but it seems that we get one step upward and they follow with two steps down. Even during the terms of their most immoral presidents (Nixon, Bush-II, Trump), they manage to back-door changes that are bad for our Republic but good for the rich.

In a practical sense, many in their top layer of supporters could care less whether America is a democracy, plutocracy, or dictatorship because in essence, they are international entities with vast wealth. There's no better example I can think of than Rupert Murdoch.

4. Always remember,

cable news mostly is rich people being paid by extremely rich people to convince middle class people that poor people are the problem.

5. Poor people are the problem. Interesting observation.

In my life, the people that have caused me the utmost problems, grief and BS are white caucasian males usually wearing expensive suits and shoes. Incidentally, I'm a white caucasian male.

7. The worst of America is still America

We did this to ourselves, because this is a broken country.

We need to do a better job of fixing what the Republicans screwed up.

8. Patience grasshopper.

Politics is a mighty pendulum that arcs slowly left & right, always seeking the center, but the momentum is sure and steady. It's swung about as far to the right as possible since 2008 and has already begun it's return path.

10. Thats true for politics.

But thatís not the case for the judiciary.

Trump is populating the Federal courts with hateful reactionary judges.

And the greatest potential disaster is the Supreme Court Ė for example, if Justice Kennedy decides to retire after the October 2017 Term, which is likely to happen, then the Court becomes solidly conservative, both with regard to wrongheaded conservative economic dogma and social dogma.

For at least the next 30 years weíll be subject to a hard-core, extremist rightwing Supreme Court, jeopardizing a womanís right to privacy, gay Americansí right to equal protection of the law, and the voting rights of minorities.

In essence, Trump will succeed in destroying our Constitutional Republic and the rule of law, where the states and local jurisdictions will be at liberty to violate the fundamental rights of Americans residing in those states with impunity, and citizens adversely effected by Republican laws and measures will have no recourse to seek relief from those laws and measures.

That's what keeps me up nights.

If there were currently five liberal justices on the Supreme Court, all in their 50s, your observation might have some comforting validity.

9. I feel the same way.

I did not read or watch the news for months after the election. I was stunned, shocked and dismayed by what had gone down.

I found this website which provides a daily synopsis of the horrors:

https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday.com/

I believe that Democrats will finally have a chance to make significant gains in both the house and senate but only if we GOTV in massive numbers.

17. You are not alone. I feel like I am living in an episode of The Twilight Zone.

Most days I am afraid to get online because I know that some fresh new hell will be revealed. Every single day there is another outrage. It is exhausting and demoralizing. I don't think many of us can take another 3 years of this nightmare.
