my condolences, America

And the rest of the world, too.

There is never a “lesser evil”. Mrs Clinton would have definitely continued the current (very dubious, to put it mildly) US foreign policy, but at least this was a given. Kinda the devil you know. Whatever Mr Trump is going to do in that regard… well, let’s just hope he knows it himself.

It’s funny how a number of analysts here (yes, there do exist Russian analysts specializing in US politics) suggest that those who voted for Trump voted for “a new America” because he apparently represents “something different” – while in reality his crowd seems to be quite reactionary.

The scariest thing about this election result isn’t the result per se. It’s the fact that so many people voted for a political black box – which means they based their vote on his personality. And apparently being disrespectful towards women, non-white Americans and non-Americans is okay in the minds of those people. That this reactionary crowd turned out to be that huge.

I wonder how many people did the “write your own candidate” thing.

  1. I heard that Pedro got a significant number of write-in votes. Me, I voted for a candidate I believe in, not the lesser of two evils. But since I voted for Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party, well, that makes me evil in the eyes of the Democrats.

    1. Well, I can only hope your candidate was really worth it =) I personally don’t believe that any politician can be trusted, even if they come from parties claiming to fight for environmental causes, but of course my worldview is tempered by the history of my country.

  2. Well, it’s been nice knowing you, my dear.

    I’m going to go and buy Fallout 4. Hopefully it has some useful information on how to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
