Technically true, on the other hand they are entitled to believe that he does not represent their values, since they have been brought up beyond their own free will into a system of completely absurd ideas. They dont know. Just like the Germans didnt know about the camps. You cant blame them, We must educate them, and for this let them rage a bit, so we can later on break through their ridiculous and utterly superficial arrogance. Arrogant ignorance is truly ugly, yes - but at least they didnt win.
The election was by-the-book constitutional. The Constitution DEFINES the United States of America. By saying, "Trump is not my president," you are saying you are not a citizen of the U.S.A.

Nah, it's just a bunch of entitled petulant little cry babies who didn't get their way and want to create havoc. It isn't truly controversial. Trump won. There is no controversy. What there is, is the smugness of the media and the Looney left who ignored the American electorate's distaste for corruption and elitist attitudes toward politicians.
Why didn't you protest when Hillary was doing her brazenly corrupt stuff? Lynch's meeting on the tarmac should have any first year law student gasping in embarrassment. But no, double standards are the name of the game.
Why do you assume that I didn't? The "tarmac meeting" was... unseemly at best. While not evidence of actual corruption it did create the appearance of corruption.
The thing that worries me about a president Trump is that he will now be in control of the criminal investigation into his Trump University, in control of the criminal investigation into his unlicensed Trump Charitable Foundation, in control of the criminal investigation into said Foundation's paying off business debts, in control of the federal negotiators for the properties Trump leases from the federal government, and in control of the regulators of banks from which Trump has borrowed money.
2 ups, 5y,
It's not a criminal investigation into Trump University, it's civil. Even Rachel Maddow and MSNBC reported that.
Clinton frauded her way into candidacy. She also frauded in the GE.
Plus, the whole country voted for Trump except the completely hedonistic hypnotized fools on the coasts. Sorry but its really stunning that people can watch CNN and not notice it is completely biased.
I disagree. There would have been a lot of grumbling and head-shaking, but not the violence/criminal activity that we've been seeing. There HAS BEEN "human damage". How could you call this "therapeutic"?
As much as it pains me to say it, I am still an American and I will continue to support whoever gets voted into office, no matter how much I personally disagree. That being said, my support ends the moment their oath of office is broken which means that if he does anything unconstitutional (like gun control) then my support ends.
Actually, no I haven't. Just because of my political views doesn't mean that I would say that a Democrat president isn't my president. I didn't like everything that he did (most notably letting people sit on their asses and collect money from the government instead of working and promising to close Guantanamo Bay), but he was still MY president because this was still MY country.
It's cool. It's just there is difference between saying he's literally not your president and saying he's not your president because you disagree with his politics. Of course he will be the President of the United States. It's just that a lot of people don't feel like him and strongly feel that he doesn't represent their views. That's what the whole "Not My President" movement is about.
People are protesting. Some are rioting. Rioting makes the news. There are people inciting stuff out of stupidity. That's not the movement. They are getting a bad rep because of the crazies who just came out to burn it down.
What I mean is that people shouldn't even be protesting this. It's done. Trump won the Presidency. But people who say that when he takes office that he won't be their president should really stop making themselves their main focus and start thinking about the future of the country. Everybody who is saying that Trump won't be their president are just saying that because they didn't get their way. The reason for this is that they feel so entitled to everything because the government allowed them to sit on their asses and collect money without working for it. Their just pissed off because Trump ain't gonna let them do that. If Hillary had won, Republicans wouldn't be protesting, rioting, or saying that she wouldn't be their president. My point is really that instead of this being an actual thing where people are protesting and rioting over this, we as Americans need to come together and finally work together for once in a go***mned lifetime to make this country successful. That's all it would take. We just need to work together and not get pissed and throw a fit because the other candidate won. That is just flat out idiotic. There is no call for protests.
That's a lot of nope for me. Though I don't think republicans would be rioting cause thats more of a young people thing. Republicans don't have high numbers in youth support. What they do have is a lot of support in the "older second amendment" supporter categories. Those guys were greared up and fired up. You can site any conservative publications and they were saying what every democrat is saying now. They were not going to support her as their president, they were going to protest, they were going to do everything possible to push back at the "liberal agenda"....and so on. Republicans won the election. So of course they are looking down on liberals for the way they are acting. It's easy to take the high road when you won. If republicans lost they would be losing their shit right now. Like I said, look back at anything any conservative news article or conservative commentator that you trust was saying about if "Hillary wins". See what they were preaching days before the election. It had nothing to do with unity. Which is exactly why liberals and independents can't take republicans seriously right now.
