These things run in cycles. My opinion on liberals hasn't changed. Most of them grow up and become productive members of society. The ones who hang onto their liberalism become sad stories.

The thing I cannot get over is the fact that the Democratic Party has completely turned their backs on the working people in this country. That we have a Republican Pres-elect who is working night and day to save American Jobs from corrupt American Corporations and their greed is some kind of a bizarro world to me.

You're so clever. Not clever enough, however to have left the US sometime in the last 8 years if you didn't "love" Obama. It appears that YOU'VE been a big crybaby. And now your inner dictator has eagerly emerged.

I'm not frowning. I don't have to. Because, though I'm not usually a betting girl, I'll bet any money that Trump isn't going to keep that big grin on your face for very long. Our newly elected reality TV POTUS -- and unapologetic member of the New York liberal elite -- will work his magic to further alienate blue collar AND educated middle classes, particularly those who elected him. He doesn't give a shi* about y'all, and he's going to prove that.

He can do this, because he doesn't WANT to be reelected in 4 years. He isn't interested. He'll have used the office of POTUS to have served his purposes enough by then: that is, reinforcing the Trump brand; continuing to build Trump Inc., here and abroad, in between his visits to the White House; leaving a legacy of being a resourceful, cunning BUSINESSMAN (gotta hand it to him, there. He most certainly IS); and, most important, stuffing his already overflowing pockets.

Trump cares about Trump, and only Trump. You'll figure this out soon enough. In the meantime, those of us who didn't vote for him will watch the Trump show unfold.

I live in NYC, and in this city, most people are disconnected from mainstream America. This disconnection I have discovered due to share amount of liberal educated white Midwesterners who moved to NYC city in recent years due to the dwarth of jobs in the Midwest and rustbelt. These persons live in a bubble and want to be removed from their native surroundings and bring on a sense of superiority to live in an elite city. This is how I learned that their was an urban and rural divide. I was exposed to elitism in NYC, and for me it made me have a disconnect from many liberals here in NYC. I learned that their was a major class divide. Their is hatred and bigotry only from a small group of Americans, but liberal media fanning flames that it is all over the country. Me politically I'm a populist/progressive. I sided with Bernie Sanders from the start. However even though I agreed with some of Trump's populist rhetoric, I did not vote for him. I also did not vote for Hillary, because of what she stood for her. From her corporate interests, to liberal backers, and mainly supported by liberal media.
Yep. That's always been the case in the US. Ironically, Trump personifies the big corporate interests who pay off politicians to serve themselves. He's the very same guy his supporters voted against.

How did this election change you?
It didn't change me, except I lost some faith in our democratic system when I saw FBI come in to tip the scales. That kind of thing typically happens only in 3rd world countries. It was also somewhat disappointing to see so many people fall for the pro-Trump fake news distributed by the Russians, but I guess the most disappointing part was the quality of the nominees. Horrible. We were doomed as soon as they had won the primaries and we knew one of them would win.

This is the biggest stereotype/misconception that really grinds my gears. How you guys on the right only act as if liberals are students or unemployed people. My dad (RIP) was a software engineer and business owner, and was a liberal til the day he died. I am a truck driver and am a liberal, just having a productive job doesn't suddenly make you conservative

Didn't change much. I still have no faith in either party. I suppose this year was a huge validation of that viewpoint. The D's and R's really are nuts!!

Even as a Canadian I felt the slight weight of oppression lifted after the election. The extreme left made me feel like I was a prisoner to political correctness. As for immigration...Here in Canada our liberal government brings in thousands of immigrants monthly. I find this no different than the problem with illegal immigration state side....the only difference is that our illegals are legal. Even our immigrants that are established do not want more people crowding them out.

It is a sad state of affairs when liberal governments flood a nation with those from other nations in hope that these new people will keep them in power.

It gave me a warm fuzzy feeling to see Hillary ride off into the sunset.
