If Hillary wins, I will not come here, and crap on the Democrats' win, I'll let them enjoy their night.

I hope my fellow Trump supporters will do the same.

I want change. Trump isn't exactly what I had in mind, but is not more of the same that we will get with Hilllary. That said, if Hillary wins I will accept her as my president and I hope if she wins that Trump will concede graciously.

Bill and Hillary attended Donald and Melania's wedding. Donald is on film in 2012 saying he likes Hillary and Bill. I wish they could be opponents while still respecting one another instead of tearing each other down.

Here's to keeping the Republican House and possibly the Senate and then solidifying the Republican advantages in the next mid term...may our descent to Venezuela be delayed for decades.

You said it much better than I did. There's no way we are anything but a country in serious decline when these two degenerates are our choices for president.

Whatever happens, nothing is changing for the better.

The End.

I'd like to think that Trump will be gracious and concede if he were to lose. He gave nice concession speeches in the GOP primaries if you remember.

Depends on how much money I have... If I were to hit the lottery tomorrow, I'd be an ex-pat in a week.

The for the people, by the people has turned on us, the common American is viewed by our political leaders as not worthy of the **** they scrape off the bottom of their shoes.

Democrat or Republican, it's time we woke up and truly take back our country. It''s now completely corrupt, at the very top on down.
When did you wake up? I'm guessing january 20, 2009.

Sure, new jobs would be created to service self-driving cars, but there will be one job created for every 10 lost. That's what I am concerned about . . . . never mind the self-thinking AI robots that want to kill us!

Yet still no four-day work week... All the tech in the world won't make life better without generous spirit behind it...

Not like it was for so long with Obama, where false pride and just plain sore losers refused to have a working relationship with the new president.
Unfortunately, that depends entirely on whether the republicans or the democrats win...

Dif between 1st world and 3rd world is exactly the things no "conservative" wants to fund -- education, health care, infrastructure...

Third world also gives its cops "carte-blanche" to act just like a gang and kill citizens with impunity... Something to think about.
