This election made me realize that the news networks can be so wrong about things that their coverage is completely meaningless (not just biased).

Yes, the media did give Trump an unfair amount of coverage of his rallies and speeches. I could hardly turn on the TV without seeing him.

Not at all, I'm well used to the empty promises and BS of election season.
I am similar to the red.

However, as a whole, it did make me see that a large percent of white Americans are indifferent to racism, sexism, and xenophobia and so I have learned from the election to be wary of new people I meet in regards to community activism and of my local politicians. I am much more into local politics than national politics as the locals and the state reps have more control over our lives than the feds anyway.

I plan to support Trump as much as Mitch McConnell has supported Obama!

That depends on the area. There probably are not too many non-mine jobs in coal country.

I am more convinced than ever that we need to convince people living in the Rust Belt and Appalachia to move to economically prosperous major metropolitan areas. We are giving them false hope that industries will return to their areas. More and more jobs are being concentrated in major metropolitan areas and these people should move there. Politicians need to be honest and tell these people that there are plenty of jobs for them in Silicon Valley, Houston, New York, Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, etc. They could perform jobs currently being done by illegal immigrants and this would help solve unemployment problems and immigration issues in one swoop. This could be complementing by a surge of apartment building to lower the high cost of housing in these prosperous areas.
Uh; maybe IF the illegal aliens were kicked out 1st. That would force wages UP since housing costs are beyond stupid in the SF bay area, LA, NYC and so on.

In other words, you didn't learn a thing from the 2016 election.
