    So Trump or Hilary, who is watching? I hope Trump wins. :D

    If there is nuclear war then we'll get to play Fallout for real. :p

    I am not sure why people think that if Trump wins there will be a WW3. Especially since he wants more cooperation with Russia.
    On the other hand the last 20 years all Democratic governments have caused several wars abroad.

    Don't get me wrong, they are both horrible horrible people, but....yeah.

    Good luck America.

    I reckon WW3 is closer with Hillary in office rather than the other around. Trump will mostly cause shit within the US, Hillary will actually involve the whole world with it.

    edit: although, Trump's plans to throw out the Paris agreement regarding global warming does affect the whole world..

    Donald Trump will become the 45th US president after a stunning victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

    Now I wonder where the UK MP's who wanted to Ban Trump from entering the uk are now !

    All things considered...and I've had plenty of years to consider things, I was quite pleased with the outcome of the elections tonight. Perhaps now, with the House and Senate also of the same party, there just might be some things get done in D.C. instead of the stalemates we've had the past few years.

    We can hope, can't we? :)

    Why every time a Republican wins, he is a moron? All the IQ goes to the Democratic candidate? None left for anyone else?

    Somehow I doubt that is what is going on.
    When Obama won, many said it was the end of the USA. Now that Trumps wins, same thing. Perhaps people need to stop being pussies for once. (and vote the Objectivist Party or perhaps the modern whig party.)

    In a way, nobody is truly qualified to run a country. On the other hand, I doubt that Trump is truly unintelligent. Obama seems fairly sharp in every way, and Trump looks like his polar opposite, but I think that Trump is at least intellectually superior to Bush Junior and Bill Clinton, the two guys who ran America for 16 straight years before Obama.

    The question that's bugging me about these elections is, if Trump was brought into office by ordinary people who feel disenfranchised, which is my perception from way over here, so it might not be correct, what is a "hard core capitalist", that Trump is, going to do for them?

    Trump is a wild card all round. He's been elected, now the world can but wait and see.

    Doesn't matter if he was running Republican or Democrat... Trump is a moron.

    "Funnily" enough, current vote count is in Clinton's favour. That might change by the time all votes have been counted, but you have a funny system, Americans.

    Because as most people, have a socialist propaganda inspired view of capitalism. The evil capitalism blah blah blah.
    Here, read this https://amzn.com/0451147952

    Or/and take a tour of this site capitalism.org

    PS. Bill Clinton is clever. A prick, but clever.

    I'm rather pleased with the outcome considering..... trump is a wild card.... we don't know really IF he has anyone that he has to report to or not.... most of the evidence suggests that he was able to go it alone and well with the amount of brutal bullshit going on trying to paint him as the worst man on the planet from all walks.... would suggest that he had to report to no one really... which is a good thing... I wouldn't be surprised if a recount of the hillary owned states resulted in trump winning them...

    Either way... If anything is likely to change for either the better or the worse... QUICKLY..... such a paradigm shift is going to be with him... I look forward to the total surprise that may come that could have trump supported reeling from regret or those that considered him the worst possible choice getting forced fed their own nonsense if/when completely blows their doors of as an extremely good choice.

    my gaud.... the number of cry babies and alarmists even in canada complaining about the trump win..... the pure insanity of the claims they are making that "TRUMP is going to do *ALL THESE BAD THINGS*"

    Various immigrants "worried/crying about being deported".... as an example of the bullshit.... It's bad enough that people are going "White people are guilty"....
