Well all I can think of is, fuuuck, am I still going to be able to get the birth control I want?

I'm sure there are larger issues but well everyone is a little egocentric.

It does have a weird sort of echo though. Bill Clinton won his first term even though Bush Sr. had the popular vote.

I hope so too.

This isn't true though.

Huh, weird. That's what my mom always said. I was just a wee little sprout at the time so of course I didn't pay attention.

Only two things ever get this much attention on TLS: Donald Trump winning and the Final Fantasy VII remake being announced.



(Aside: still need to fix that Skype image)

Obama will also be giving a speech shortly:

Edit: I'm going to miss him. Both of them, really (Obama and Biden). I think America will too, with time.

if you assume he won't go through with his more outlandish proposals (that weren't simply him repeating "it's a beautiful plan, we'll be winning so much" 50 times), what happens to the anti-establishment vote then? what happens when you don't get a mexican border wall (or you get one that mexico won't give you $25 billion for and you're stuck footing the bill for), no instant deportation force. if you assume that the system is going to keep him in check, what was the point of voting to shake that system up? if it ends up being basically just another republican presidency because most of the people in government are still the establishment

albeit another republican term with republicans in control of every part of government and congress and perhaps the supreme court soon so get ready for funeral services for miscarriages and abortions and the righ to discriminate against people if you just believe hard enough and why not put prayers back in schools while you're at it

i could see most of his promises going nowhere since i live in the land of 2016's previous biggest democratic pants-shitting, brexit. most of those promises were torn down within a week of the eu referendum. no £350 million a week for the health service, no access to the single market without free movement of eu citizens, it turns out businesses aren't rushing to trade with you when you tank your economy without you offering them more in return. but at least we got control of our country back! until the courts you wanted to regain their power rule in a way you don't like then those people you wanted to give power back to are the enemy of the common folk

turns out a lot of nationalistic nostalgia for a past deemed to be greater than the present isn't always too great

and for a lot of people, that past wasn't a great place to be the first time around

That was probably the most positive and inspiring thing I've heard this whole election period.

^ Hm, I guess I agree with parts of that. It is absolutely one of the benefits of a representative democracy that people don't have to worry about politics every day of their lives... but I think America could and should be doing a much better job of choosing its representatives in the first place, and then holding them accountable, which won't happen if everyone just switches off for four years at a time between presidential elections.
