2. South Dakota

3 electoral votes
Won state by 30 points.

Elections have consequences.

Or to put it in terms for farmers, “ you reap what you sow”.

3. If you voted for Trump you earned and deserve everything coming your way !!!!

If you did NOT vote for Trump you have my sympathy and empathy.

I hope you can survive the damage and destruction coming your way.

5. A-men to that!

We should not ALL have to suffer for the mistakes of a few, but boy, you wish you could really focus the "pain" on those that deserve it!
