Before we get started - nope, don't care for Hillary nor Donald. America could've definitely done better in both cases.
America - as you all know - is a land of diversity and a true melting pot of sorts.
But, it seems people are giving up on that notion. They've become fed up with racial sensitivity, female empowerment, and they're giving their lives into the hands of a person whose ideas and notions look very much like Hitler's notions.
Something you should take into consideration, now that you no longer have a choice:
Research has shown Donald has won due to all of the uneducated people who voted for him.
Since the majority of states who voted for him have a low level of people with at least a Bachelor's Degree. With this being said, all we can conclude is that people who voted for him don't really like to think for themselves (or they can't) ... and are okay with it because Donald will think for them. Reminds you of someone?
Education plays a big role in a person's life - undeniably so. It shapes the way they see the world, the way they interpret people's words and claims, the ease with which they can be tricked and convinced of other people's beliefs. Learning to think is important. No matter what anyone says.
Donald winning can only mean that people who voted for him not only feel like he will keep his word, but are banking on it. Meaning: they're more than alright with his slurs, sexism, racism, sexual abuse and probably support it.
If he does everything he says he's going to do, America might become a Nazi sort of Germany; a bit more liberal, but also way too restricted to mesh well with what Americans have been used to up until now.
But will he have that much say? Probably not.
Will he be respected and loved well into the next 4 years? Depends entirely on him.
One thing is for sure. People who didn't vote for him will be watching him very closely. Keep in mind: impeachment!
Good luck, America!
You voted, you got it!
Coming out of this election I can honestly say I only wholeheartedly dislike one person: Ted Nugent.
Most Helpful Opinions
Completely disagree for multiple reasons.
1) Comparing Trump to Hitler is just beyond irrational. I can't even take that seriously.
2) I completely disagree that Trump won because his voters are "uneducated" or "lack the ability to think for themselves." In contrast, most Trump supporters voted for him due to their ability to be free thinking individuals and not blindly believe everything the media spoon feeds them. The media was never on Trump's side, that much was obvious. This election just proved that people are fed up with the mass media in America AND the political establishment.
3) I fail to see how Trump is against women or minorities. As a woman, Hillary makes me feel like I *should* be a victim. I don't need anyone telling me when I should be offended by something. Telling me that as a woman I should be offended by mean things Trump said is beyond condescending. Hillary and other liberal politicians act like being a woman is inevitably a downfall in America so I should use my gender as a crutch. I fundamentally disagree. I voted for Trump because I am an empowered woman who CAN think for myself. My political views and values align FAR more with him than the opposing candidate. Under Trump, I don't have to worry about losing my 2nd amendment right to defend myself. I am responsible for myself and my own personal safety. I don't rely on the government to take care of me.
4) The term "educated" is relative. Just because someone goes to college doesn't mean they are smarter than someone who doesn't. It depends on the individual and what they chose to do with their own life. There are MANY people in America who did not attend college and therefore, do not have college degrees, but that doesn't mean they are stupid.
This myTake pretty much reinforces why he won. Ultimately, this happened because people got tired of being labeled as a "racist, sexist, homophobic, bigot" for NO legitimate reason. Name calling people is not the way to garner support for your opinions, being able to hold a mature conversation as ADULTS is. Therefore, maybe people on the political left should take the time to reflect on the outcome of this election and their strategy, and maybe next time they will have better luck.
Sexual abuse isn't a 'legitimate reason'? People today scare me...
+ contradicting a holocaust victim that knew, first hand, what Hitler was like - is incredibly delusional.
Did he go to court and was found guilty of sexually abusing someone? Accusations aren't the same as being found guilty and let's not pretend Hillary is a huge champion of women either. When women came out and accused Bill of rape and sexual assault, she did everything she could to silence them. Ultimately, both candidates were shitty but I based my vote on POLICIES, not emotions. I figured out which candidate I had the most common political views with and it wasn't Hillary.
Also, if you want me to believe that Trump is the same as Hitler, you should present actual facts to back that up based on his policies and things he has actually said he will do as President. I'm not going to just take the word of one person who says that, even if they are a Holocaust survivor. This is me being a critical thinker and thinking for myself, you know, something you said Trump supporters don't do.
