2016 the last "election" the historical American remedy of "vote them out"

is over. We have no verification of votes. State government officials shut down recount efforts and in some cases tampered with said recount efforts in order to skew results even though Americans paid highway robbery prices to get a verified vote count. We still have electronic voting machines that have no paper trails and cannot be audited. We still have electronic voting systems with "proprietary software and hardware" that we have no access to because the corporations that make the machines won't allow it. The electronic voting systems are not secure and can be hacked. In spite of court rulings against GOP Gerrymandered districts the districts remain. There were over a million legitimate American voters purged from voting lists and GOP Vote Suppression is a very successful tactic for their Party. There are a myriad of problems with our election/voting system and under GOP control with tRump it will not be fixed it will get worse.

If you are thinking about focusing on 2018, or 2020 your missing the big picture. As Josef Stalin said, "it's not who votes but who counts the votes that matters."

Michelle Obama is right, there is no hope with Trump. Before 11/8 I had lots of hope

for my future and the future of America. After 11/9 I have no hope for either. Regardless of whatever Unpotus tweets he is the reason I have no hope, him, and his creepy lawbreaking family and his cabinet of horrors.

I had the worst Christmas ever and I've had a lot of hard candy Christmases. I didn't spend any money and don't plan on it.

Trump is a liar, a pathological liar and lifelong con man and a domestic threat to the USA and to Americans.

I agree with Michelle Obama we are feeling what it's like to have no hope. I certainly have none.

When the media called the "election" for tRump I described my experience

like being beaten, kicked repeatedly in the gut, badly beaten and then there's a knock at the door and it's the authorities coming to notify me of the unexpected, sudden death of a loved one, in this case, the loved one is my country, America, and all that I knew and loved about America. Then to add insult to injury, nobody will investigate the murder.

This is how I have described my experience after 11/9. Normally I am an articulate person but the shock of this travesty has left me in a place where I struggle to find my words. For at least 3 weeks and even now there is a pain in my solar plexus area like I was brutally beaten. Literally, this has been my gut reaction.

Anyone else? Anyone relate?

My Constitutional question, a question that came to me on 11/10 and I articulated on

11/12 after the "election" my question is this:

There are people in government who swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the USA and the US Constitution. How does upholding this sworn oath work when transferring power to a man that threatens entire groups of American people?

How is that possible? Obviously some government officials could care less about this solemn oath, their word means nothing, they have no integrity or values, perhaps they are sold out to the highest corporate bidder, or being blackmailed by Russia, or whatever but some, who are honorable, honest people have sworn this oath and tRump is a one man constitutional crisis who literally threatens Americans and the Constitution.

So, how does this work? If tRump is allowed to violate laws, threaten groups of people, refuse to comply with releasing tax returns, violates nepotism regs, basically does whatever he wants while tweeting threats about union leaders, nuclear weapons, dissenting opinions, and manipulating stock prices.

My first time back at DU after the DU hack. Nothing has been the same since.

I happened to be on DU when it was hacked. It didn't seem to me to be a Trump troll it seemed more dastardly, bigger more calculated in my opinion. And nothing has been the same since that moment when "God emperor" repeated over and over on my screen.

This is my first time back here after that and my first post. I completely agree with another post here in General Discussion from someone who has avoided news and DU since 11/9. I haven't watched any MSM TV since the "election" was called for Unpotus which was reminiscent of 2004 EVote fiasco.

The national gas lighting by Don the Con and his complicit media has given way to a national nervous breakdown. We're expected to believe that a minority of Americans have created this result in spite of all the facts stacked against him. We're being sold a bill of goods, a lemon, a magic bullet theory only worse the minority president and his cabinet of horrors will get away with every evil plan to destroy the USA because we have no checks and balances, the corrupt GOP has been actively working against America and the majority of American people for at least 15 years or more.

This "election" isn't normal it's UNPRECEDENTED! Trump is a domestic threat. He has already destabilized America. The Electoral College failed to do it's Constitutional duty. The press conference the POTUS gave didn't give any indication that Trump will be stopped from usurping power, actually, the press conference seemed to normalize this sham of an "election" and failed to mention Trump is completely unqualified and unfit, not to mention mentally unstable. That press conference scolded the press but made me feel worse and I've been a supporter of President Obama since he was campaigning for his first term.

This "election" is the 3rd questionable one - and I am being generous here - this time Russia interfered, the FBI interfered, there was GOP Voter suppression and Gerrymandering, plus we still have electronic voting with no paper trail, the state governments shut down recount efforts to verify voting, the complicit media that gave Trump 2 billion $ in free airtime, fake news, propaganda...all of it points to a sham.

And here we are. Don the Con is getting away with it. The GOP has finally destroyed America. Our Republican controlled government is not to be trusted to stop this madness. We are terrorized by our own system. And those of us who understand this reality lack the power to stop this hostile takeover, this political coup.

Nothing is okay! America is not okay! The majority of Americans are not okay! This is not a matter of politics as usual or my candidate lost, this is way worse than GWB and Darth Cheney. Trump is a domestic threat. The GOP are enemies of the state. This is not business as usual.
