Real world, nothing will change.

Added to our financial health; brokerage accounts up big since the election. Go Trump! (even though we didn't vote for him)

Kind of funny how so many Trump supporters seem to think that everyone who voted for Hillary is a shiftless person on welfare who is sucking the government dry.

This election effectively "cured" the low morale i have been suffering with since ~2012 In my ENTIRE life i have never seen a more blatant example of "good vs evil" play out as in this Trump vs. Hillary election.

Obama has caused so much harm on this nation spiritually, economically (especially!!), and locally (drug use/homelessness/social breakdown are all up across the country thanks to Obama's economic damage).

I feel energized by the Trump victory, i feel rejuvenated, i feel like my faith in the election process has been restored.

Most of all i feel.... I feel like maybe there is hope after all

Looking forward to an "interesting" 2017, cheers!

Kind of sounds like the feelings about "Hope and Change" in 2008 that Democrats had, just reworked a bit for 2016

I agree with your support of free trade and that free trade has helped billions of people all over the world.

However, we don't have anything near free trade in the USA today.

Only 10 to 15% of his campaign promises will actually come to pass.

But paid trolls have already been infiltrating popular forums like reddit so not sure where we go after this for honest public opinion. Other than that, I might have lost some liberal friends but I will survive. I am sure they will come around. Didnt insult them or anything, just asked few basic questions that they agreed made a convincing case for Trump but still they hated him too much to vote for him. Overall I am happy that I might be able to save some money next year & we will be focusing on correcting domestic issues in our country.
Got me to realize you can't ever watch CNN or like channels or read articles from NY Times or like publications.

I never realized it was THAT bad.

Oh, baloney! This whole media bias is a bunch of stuff made up by Trump so he can get away with whatever he wants to do.

I am soo proud President Donald Joseph (? J?) Trump is the President. People have been SICK of OBAMA for A LONG TIME. The 2012 election was weak; THIS TIME, WE GOT IT.

Could not be more happy. And **** Obama. And pretty much all Democrats, too...
LOL, President Donald John Trump. (Jonathan?)

The Liberal's heads are STILL exploding.
