Ya blew it!

It really happened. Like I said in a previous blog: I am not from the US and therefore I did not vote. Not because I didn’t want to but because I couldn’t. Otherwise Hillary would have definitely had my vote. Not because I loved her, but because she was the best choice.

Inevitable “Trump became president” article coming up.

Unfortunately there were not only too many Trump voters, there were also too many butt hurt people who didn’t want to vote for Hillary because they didn’t like her. Congratulations, you just got Donald Trump elected as the 45th president of the United States.

Usually A-Typical doesn’t like to judge but this time, let’s judge a little. Trump voters exist out of the rich and wealthy, out of the crazy and out the ignorant. People who still believe in the American dream. People that start at the bottom that believe they can climb the ladder, rise to power, gain wealth and become just like Trump. That wealth, that quality of life is the American dream.

That’s all it will ever be for most: a dream. If you aspire to become rich and powerful then there’s nothing stopping you from doing this but you have to remain realistic. Winning the American dream is like winning the lottery. How many people do you actually know that were able to make this American dream come true?

The idea that everybody has an equal chance to become the next Bill Gates or Donald Trump for that matter, is exactly why this world is stuck in capitalistic purgatory. It’s exactly why people like Trump will keep having power and money and it is exactly why money will be the driving force in this world. The idea is wrong. And the people who voted for Trump because of this very idea just dug their own graves.

Despite what Trump supporters might believe, Donald Trump is anything but a man of the people. Besides the conservative, idiotic, bigoted ideas he has, he is nothing like the majority of his supporters. The majority of his supporters won’t ever be like him, as much as they’d like to.

I feel for the US. I’ve been there several times and I have friends there. I feel bad for those who really, really didn’t want Trump to win. I feel bad for those who did want him to win because they’re simply too ignorant to see why that scenario is catastrophic.

And yes, I also feel bad for the rest of the world. Because Donald Trump is now the president of the United States, the most powerful nation of the world. That really sucks for the rest of the world and could affect everyone. No, the world my not end because of this but look at the damage Bush did. I have no reason to believe Trump is any better than Bush, he very likely is worse.

Third party voters, I’m also looking at you. You have every right to vote for whoever you want and I respect that, but is this what you wanted? Yeah, Jill Stein probably would’ve been a better president but there was no way she was going to become president. Same goes for Gary Johnson and any other third-party candidates. Because you had principles Hillary didn’t win. I understand you didn’t want her as president, I understand why. But is this really better?

Those who didn’t vote because of principles, same story. I understand you’re pissed that there are two monkeys running for president, but Hillary was definitely the better monkey in this case. Well, to all those principle-people: congratulations with your new president.

But hey, it’s your funeral. I thankfully I don’t reside in the US right now, and I wish the US the best of luck. I am extremely sorry for your loss. This article might have been a bit more judgy than normal but that’s because I really hate Trump. Non-voters and third-party voters. Y’all not too bad, I can respect your anger. I can’t respect your decision to not vote for the democratic candidate but at least you didn’t vote for Trump. Hillary voters, you tried to fight the good fight but unfortunately you didn’t win and that sucks.

Trump voters, I don’t agree with your decision and I cannot fathom why you would ever choose such a disgusting, racist, ignorant, money and power-hungry, sexist, xenophobic baboon. But I’m gonna keep this friendly. You dug your own grave, that’s all I’m gonna say. I’ll take the high road, won’t reduce myself to the same level as Trump and his supporters. I just hope you learn from this experience.

I wish the US the very best. You have a hard time ahead of you that will very likely affect the whole world. I’ll stop blaming you for voting now because what’s done is done. Trump is the real bad guy here. Godspeed, stay safe and move to Canada if you can.

Donald, if you’re reading this I’ll give you the opposite of the advice we like to give our readers: don’t be yourself. Also, you suck.

Back to the Future called it: Cubs won the world series, Biff elected president.

Democratically yours,

A-Typical

  1. You remember that ‘mistake’ the US military made when they had that air strike on Deir Ezzor, 17 September?

    That was the kind of mistake the Pentagon make to get their own way when the president isn’t looking. They’ll do their job, in the way they want to, then they’ll ask for support from the politicians.

    In breaking the word of the American government that had agreed to a cease-fire, the Pentagon were giving a clear warning to all concerned.

    It’s not something Clinton or Trump can do anything about.

    1. True, Trump will just be a puppet but in the end he is the face of the US. And that ain’t pretty. His ideas will have influence and he will be who the Americans will directly be confronted by. Without getting further into the “real” politics, it just sucks that he’s president no matter how you twist it. 😦

      1. Well… and you can’t make this up… some newspapers are peddling the line that it was Putin who interfered with the election process.

        I mean, if the Americans don’t like their president, they know who to blame!!

      2. There’s a Dutch saying: “Who burns his butt, has to sit on the blisters.”. In this case they’re orange-tanned, toupet-wearing blisters. I just hope it won’t be as bad as we all think.

      3. There’s another Dutch saying that goes “Trust arrives on foot and leaves by horse.”

        It’s not Trump we need to be worried about, but the over-powerful governent agencies that have power over the president. They are a clear and present danger to the US.

  2. Don’t you think its rather racist, sexist, and hypocritycal of you to make generalizations of the Trump voting base? I’m hispanic, and I have no intentions of using my race as a means to win favor nor do I desire to express my political beliefs.

    That being said, when you have a good 50 million individuals who voted for trump and you say they are all born out of the rich, ignorant, and crazy, you are being the same bigot you consider Trump to be. Many of these people were poor coal miners that feared Hillary would take away their jobs, many were blacks fed up with the Democrat management of the inner cities, many were latinos who realized that illegal immigration was a real problem. And you need to understand that.

    I won’t tell you who you should have voted for, (since you’re not in the US) but I’ll tell you that you ought to try and examine the voter base before you go off making illogical generalizations on them. It’s very disrespectful, especially when I know people close to me whom have close relatives that voted for Trump and close friends who agreed with what he had to say.

    Let’s try not to paint pictures of either side. And I’m not even arguing on whether Trump is a good candidate, just that you should look at his voter base from the other side.

    1. Thanks for the comment. I will say that I might have been harsh on Trump voters and I did generalize them. Not all Trump voters are bad, not saying that. I should’ve been more careful to describe the Trump voters but I will say that I think those traits go for the majority of the voters. Ignorance is not the same as stupidity. I genuinely believe there is a large portion of the voters that did not realize what Trump really represented. Politics is a touchy subject and in no way did I mean to offend you or anybody else. I just personally can not fathom why anybody would vote for Trump. And maybe that’s exactly why I think there is such ignorance amongst his voters. Also not saying I’m pro-Hillary. She was just the best of the worst in my opinion. Sure, every candidate has good points. Even Trump. I hope he fixes the job problem if that’s what he says he’s gonna do. I just think that the bad outweighs the good. I apologize if I offended you. Right now Trump is president and what’s important for not only the US but the rest of the world as well, is that we won’t let world leaders like him get our spirits down. We gotta take care of each other and hope for the best. Stay safe and godspeed. 🙂

      1. While I disagree with your point on the majority of Trump voters being ignorant of who they’re voting for, as I believe the same could be said for Hillary, I thank you for the objectivity in your response. I don’t want to make a political disscussion, but I would have voted for Donald Trump despite the plethora of lies people have spread about him, as I am leaning toward conservatism as an ideology. Many people liked his stances on the free market and illegal immigration (me in a nutshell) but most Trump supporters would not say he was their favorite choice. I don’t believe Trump represents what you believe he does, but you are entitled to your opinions as I am entitled to mine.

        After conducting research on both candidates, I would have much prefferred a Trump presidency over a Clinton or Bernie presidency. Perhaps it is that you and I see the research we found in a different light.

        Thank you for apologizing and I apologize if I gave off a combatative tone. We must all stand together in the coming years, for better or worse.

        😀

      2. We should not let politics divide us as people. We shouldn’t let politics define who we are. I might not agree with you but I respect your decisions and opinions. Stay awesome and don’t let policitics pawnify you. Always feel free to discuss what we say here, we love it 😉 Cheers!

  3. Whatever else, Donald Trump is toeing the line. The CIA have been beyond presidential control for a good few years… and need to keep tabs on anybody who might just want to change things.

    Donald Trump named former CIA director and extremist neoconservative James Woolsey his senior adviser on national security issues on Monday. Woolsey, who left the CIA in 1995, went on to become one of Washington’s most outspoken promoters of U.S. war in Iraq and the Middle East.

    As such, Woolsey’s selection either clashes with Trump’s noninterventionist rhetoric — or represents a pivot towards a more muscular, neoconservative approach to resolving international conflicts.

  4. My biggest hope is that Trump won’t be an extreme warmonger. That’s probably one of the main reasons why other nations are worried that he’s elected. I fear Trump will try to mess with the rules, be reckless and try to start a few conflicts. The guys behind the scene will have the final call in his decisions but if history is anything to go by, they’re not the most sensible people either. :/

    1. I refer you to my first reply on your post.

      This isn’t about Trump – or Clinton, for that matter. The government agencies in the US are bigger and tougher than the politicians now. If they want a war, they are going to make one.

      Only, as you mention, desk-jockeys do not make sensible – or realistic generals.
