Now, here we are in 2017 and half the country ready to rebel at anything the winner won (who won a lot of states but lost the popular vote thanks to California giving the loser a big plurality). We have populations in one state angry at another state. There is political philosophy against political philosophy with no real idea how half the country even thinks since out of the voting age population of 229.1 million, only 129.1 million bothered to vote. Why did they stay home? Who did they favor? Did they even know there was an election?
With the aftermath so bitter-- and it is still very bitter if you read comments or have friends who are not all of one side of the partisan divide-- how can anyone govern? The left is trying to make Trump a failed president before he gets in office. They want to make him even more seen as a failed human being-- often using tidbits of what he said as ammunition with no idea what he really wants to do.
Well, a leader can govern, as Obama often had to do using executive orders, by fiat and that appears to be where we are heading. In the end though, how does that work for a country working for common goals? Can there even be any? Will this end up with revolution of one sort or another? some do believe that and it's interesting to see how they come up with our future.
