Close Election?

How can this presidential election be so close? One may wonder in amazement, as I did in 2000.

Could it be the effects of decades of extreme Alt-Right political indoctrination by FOX/talk radio and fringe websites?

And how about corporate media’s false equivalence, “horse race” ratings pandering, hired shills, failure of fact checking, and scandal mongering? 

It's almost as if politically powerful families and rich authoritarian white men are taking over. 

The founders must have been wrong, wanting to discourage aristocracy. 

Americans are better educated now.

I guess that's what it takes to make America great again.

But what do I know?

Here in Southern California I have not seen a single Trump campaign sign. It is like he doesn't even exist.

Someone put a Trump sticker at about eye level on the back of the traffic sign in the median by the left turn lane, visible as you travel south on Sabre Springs Parkway turning left, (east) on to Poway Road. I have spotted maybe two trucks in East San Diego County that displayed Trump bumper stickers. Last summer I saw a guy with a Hillary for Prison Tee-shirt at the grocery store.

As I predicted 8 months ago, if Trump won, liberals would blame everybody, every institution, claim it was Fascism, racism, voter intimidation, and heaven knows what else instead of facing the reality that liberalism is not what America wants.

To paraphrase Obama, we won, you lost, get over it.

Major Chuck,

If you read my post you'd see who I blame. The irony is I agree with you and Trump. It was the media. Profit driven corporate news media's betrayal of journalism shows we can't have democracy and freedom without a free press.

I also agree with Trump that it is a rigged system.

"What America wants" is reflected by the votes.

Per NPR, As of 10 a.m. ET, Clinton had amassed 59,299,381 votes nationally, to Trump's 59,135,740.

Your gloating ignores the fact most Americans voted for Hillary. Trump won with less than 50% of the votes. Once again most Americans want a Democratic president.

Instead we get another Republican dictatorship. How did that work out last time?

Let's count the ways: tax cuts for the rich, 9-11, Invasion of Iraq, Rise of ISIS, Financial collapse, Rising unemployment, and the Great Recession.

As Trump said, "What do you have to lose?"

Here's to more Republican rule!

Majormajor said...

There's that evil word PROFIT, you mean to say if it were not profit the media would be ok?

I predicted this liberal meltdown if they lost this election.

Look at your own hate filled words, dictatorship, where do you come up with that?

We won, you lost, get over it!

Your low information status is showing. News used to be public service loss-leader in media.

Now profits are demanded by their corporate controllers. Scandals, invented or real, generate profits. You obviously didn't read or understand the post.

Dictatorship: A form of government in which one person or a small group possesses absolute power without effective constitutional limitations. One party rule without compromise.

Your Orange Savior has promised torture and killing of "terrorist family members". More tax cuts for the rich, less environmental regulations because climate change is a "Chinese Hoax".

Anti-science Propaganda, lies too numerous to print, torture, killing innocents. All the actions of a dictator.

Oh, and a "mandate" by what margin of voters again? Tell us what "America wants", that is the MINORITY who elected Trump.

How did that work out last time we had 8 years of Republican rule? The Great Trump Depression will be worse than the Great Bush Recession.

You are afraid to answer simple questions. Authoritarians are above question, just like dictators. History has shown the truth.

Time for more tax cuts for the rich. Works every time...for them.

I'll get over it, but our country may not. We haven't recovered completely from the Bush Recession.

Aww, Dave you forgot the part about killing baby seals.
