It truly is frightening to think that at least 50 million people think it's okay to have this hatemongerer as president. It's not even an anti-Republican stance. I wouldn't want McCain or Romney to be President, for instance, but at least they're not hateful sociopaths. The country would have survived them. But this is very different. There's no way this will end well.

Some people saw a very public falling out between my family and myself over the course of the last day. I was slammed on so many fronts and so many lies were casted against me, that I severed ties with three of them. It was ugly. I don't act innocent, but I showed a helluva lot of restraint considering I was close to exposing everyone's bullshit publicly.

Okay....let me first say that although not an American, I was rooting for Clinton.

Now let me say as a human...The Clinton supporters have shown in the past few days that the basket of deplorables is seemingly for both sides of the political spectrum.

Passion is one thing.....destruction of property is not. Continuing to insult people who voted for him is not okay. Being unrelenting in your views to the point you are not listening to anyone outside of your chior is not okay. These are the same people that already decided to chastise Trump had he now bowed down gracefully had he lost.

I get it. Anger, frustration, sadness, loss of hope....That doesn't give excuse to behave in a manner that you have been fighting against for the past two years. Trump lost, it sucks....But channel your dissatisfaction into something that could inspire hope, not something that inspires fear and gives all those Trump supporters the smug saskfaction that you are no better than them.

I'm not defending trump, but at this point...I would be going against my values to defend Clinton.

It's the same misguided people that protest against anything and everyone. The far left is kooky, too. Any extemism is a sign of ignorance.

People definitely need to remember that. I think for me it boils down to: protest, but you also need to remember that people are watching. Do it peacefully. I don't care if you march. Start throwing moltov cocktails? Lines get crossed. It says a hell of a lot more to peacefully protest and drive your protest in. I'm over all the attacking all over the place on personal lines. And the fucking memes - not witty. You supported Trump. I don't know why, but, to each their own. I'm not going to sit there and castigate you. It bears no fruits. One, I have better things to do than eviscerate your beliefs. Two, what the fuck is it gonna solve?

I get that people are scared, myself included. Don't give the right a reason to fear you. Exist peacefully; demonstrate that they are coming for peaceful sects of society. And if the time comes where the presidency with the legislative branch and judicial arm try to bear their full weight upon you?

That's when you get rowdy.

There was a group of "peaceful" protesters that shut down one side of a major interstate in Iowa City. In my mind, those people are idiots. They could have caused accidents and also could have prevented ambulances from doing what they needed to do. People need to calm down -- we've survived 44 presidents and we'll survive this one.

I think the problem is that everyone is legitimately afraid because a faction of America has never elected a president without any experience. The campaign he ran was based on relating to people's fears, outright lies, and messages of intolerance. While we may survive, at what expense to our institutions, prestige, and quite frankly way of life? And now he hired a white nationalist with deep ties to hate being praised by the Nazi party in America as well as the KKK - you don't see how people are troubled?

I don't know where we go from here, because the course has never been traveled before. But it's quite ominous, that Trump is trying to staff his office with those kinds of people.
