    Funny you should say that as my last conversation with a Libertarian regarding the minimum wage found that he felt that the minimum wage was a disservice to the poor as it robbed them of employment. Ergo, full time employment was a greater virtue than a living wage.

    One could say that about the Republicans too. If (if) Trump wins he is going to surround himself with shady characters like Chris Christie and way past his due date Rudy Giuliani. They will bring nothing to the table except maybe a water bottle.

    Supposedly exit polling shows that Clinton failed to bring out the black vote. By not voting it means you are willing to accept whomever is elected. It's that simple.

    It has often been said that America is a great experiment, so the voters have spoken and they have to accept whatever comes of their vote until the next time. As long as the experiment doesn't kill us, life will go on. Things need to get tweaked every once in a while.

    As neighbors, we get to witness the results of the experiment for good or for bad. Hopefully we will learn something from it (again as long as it doesn't kill us).

    According to Trump a few months back he said if elected he would sign Keystone within the first week of him being in office. Now, if the republicans get both the house and the senate that could ring true.

    I thought Trump's position was ripping up NAFTA not renegotiating it.

    Could be, but realistically it would have to be renegotiated given how intertwined our economies and supply chains are (as a country we are their largest trading partner). Unless Trump is willing to simply impose across the board tariffs, which would have broad cost implications for US companies.

    It's pretty much over now that PA went to Trump. Interestingly enough, Trump has the popular vote too by over a million votes.

    In the end Trump was the better campaigner but I still believe, of the two, Clinton would have been a better president. The voters who gave the win to him expect a return to an era that is not coming back and nothing Trump can do will make it come back.

    Yes, but the disenfranchised will have at least had their say, the country seemed like it was on the verge of imploding. Hopefully things will stay civil and hate crimes don't spike.

    With least civil party controlling the House and the Senate, and the least civil President in memory, I'm not holding out too much hope there.

    Donald Trump elected president of the United States. At 276, may hit 300 electoral votes by the time it's over. Hillary has now called Trump and conceded the election. Buildthemhigh and others you were right. Congrats.

    Well he said what he had to in order to win, perhaps once he comes to grips with the gravity of occupying the office he will be less strident. There is talk of him provoking a constitutional crisis with some of his pronouncements, according to NBC news generals are reading the constitution in order to determine whether they can defy his orders. Even the notion of trying Clinton comes with some political risk. If world events transpire such that it invokes problems or a crisis at the feet of the US government he will need to address them. Otherwise it would be case of Nero fiddling while Rome turns. The job comes with huge responsibilities, how much can the US insulate itself against the rest of the world since it is so interconnected. What happens if there is a global recession?

    Even Trump has financial interests abroad.

    So where was Hillary, graciously conceding defeat in a concession speech? Can you imagine the outcry if Trump had lost, and decided not to give a speech? This election was all about left wing media bias - glad to see Americans were smart enough to see through it and not elect a crook.

    In that sense it's nice to see Clinton get slammed. Maybe Bernie will now stage a coup in the DNC. I bet he's just going to love talking with all those DNCers now.

    Early in the new year, Wikileaks is moving to Washington, Trump is granting immunity to Julian Assange, and Trump is going to Russia to bring back his newly adopted son, Vladimir Putin.

    Ah, you've got a hyper-vindictive, hard talking authoritarian at the helm. He'll take a few actions to flex his muscle and then people will either duck and cover, abandon ship, or just do as they are told. They'll likely just do whatever is asked and hope he gets blamed for any major calamity. Of course, he'll just point to the bureaucracy and blame them. The generals will do as they are told. A whole lot current generals will be forced out and a new batch promoted.

    A LOT of women are going to be quitting their government jobs.

    As an aside, the women's rights movement is going to get very interesting, maybe even militant. Maybe globally because this will be a strong anti-women signal to the rest of the world as in the Middle East where women were becoming a destabilizing force in some Islamic countries. Now the Muslim men can relax on that front. Conservative values are back, in that sense.

    As I said, it's like when the board of directors of Apple punted the hated Steve Jobs, the experienced expert, and handed the keys to John Sculley the skilled businessman and marketer.

    He didn't become more strident for the election, he's always been this way. After 70 years I doubt he's suddenly going to become diplomatic and reasonable.

    Looking at the numbers this looks like an story of who stayed home rather than who came out. Trump and Clinton each got fewer votes than Obama and Romney but the drop for the Democrats was huge. And we also have the second time in U.S. history someone won the popular vote (assuming nothing changes) but lost the electoral vote.

    Hillary not speaking to her supporters and conceding last night shows what kind of person she really is. 16 years of W and Obama was enough for them, time for bigger and better things.

    I believe it's actually the fifth time, but only the second in modern times:

    The vast majority of "pigs at the trough" do not live in DC. Most live in Virginia, across the Potomac or in Maryland. The majority of people living in DC are poor, urban minorities (50% black, 10% latino, roughly). Although that's been changing recently.
