The "white backlash" thing..are there some people who fit what you describe? Absolutely! But there's much more to it than that. We're in trouble that is for sure.

100%. Just terrible. Imagine that now a UN Security Council with seats for Trump, Putin, Farage, Marine Le Pen and Chinese Communist Party is very possible, scary

The world has now a new big problem: the increment of life expectancy. Because of that now old people totally ignorant of the new social-tecnological-economic dynamics of the world are deciding crucial polls wich will affect their sons and grandsons lives, giving them a f*** and inestable world.

Clinton = $877 million
Trump = $372 million

Trump won while spending less than half of what Clinton spent.

Yup, it was a fun ride

But keep it mind, if Russia comes, it won't get fed by just the Baltic alone, the Bear will also kill the Raindeer.

Milton Friedman also disagrees with you on greed:
The unbridled greed approach failed miserably in the US. Train wreck doesn't begin to describe it. Milton Friedman is a member of the Chicago School of Economics, which has a history of subverting Latin American economies and countries (Chile, anyone?). He's not the only US economist to win a Nobel Prize, fortunately.

Democrat voters had their best weapon (Bernie) ... but they unfortunately chose Hillary Clinton, who hasn't really ran on anything, her whole campaign was just "im against Trump" ... Bernie was big and passionate for higher minimum wage, affordable healthcare and college.. things Democrats and working class Americans are passionate about.

Trump actually had his message and his goals, he won with working class Americans, Average Americans against the status quo, Conservative Americans sick of Illegal Immigration...

Hillary basically just won with people who get offended by how non p.c and outspoken Trump is.

But i wish for the best for everyone and i hope the best for U.S and the World, and we can all chill out because i believe 3 more states just passed bills supporting legalizing Marijuana yesterday

That's what I said if you read carefully I stated in part. I would say you're minimizing the white backlash thing, I live in a heavily Republican area the changing demographics comes up a lot when "white people" are among white people.

This is so sick, and everything which is wrong with politics in the US today. You can't become president if you don't spend hundreds of millions of dollars.

Bernie would've crushed Trump beyond belief.
Well I think in retrospect, Bernie would have prevailed but not by much. The candidates that don't get the nomination always look better than the ones that do by the time the election rolls around - they've haven't been bloodied by the political process. As for the Clinton camp insulting Trump supporters, have you ever visited the politics forum? The hardcore Trump supporters (the true believers not necessarily the ones who voted for him for economic reasons) spew a consistent and vitriolic stream at liberals, Obama, Clinton, Democrats, and anyone who doesn't share their views. One comment about "deplorables" hardly compares.
