Well, one way or the other, the nightmare that is this election will end tonight. Unfortunately, our nightmare will probably only begin.

I'm not going to be watching the election, both because I'll be in ceramics class at the time and because they don't allow alcohol in the dorms--and I'd desperately need it, because no matter who wins I don't want to confront the implications while sober.

I am worried that Trump supporters might commit violence if he doesn't win (and even if he does win, for that matter). I don't think Clinton supporters would, though if they think Trump can actually do what they think he will, it'll be interesting to see what sort of tactics they think are justified.

I'd be a little less pissy about them, as a group, if they hadn't raised money for a firebombed GOP office. Condemn violence against fascists or not, raising money so they can better organize to pass bigoted legislation seems a *little weird*.


It's been a while since I posted; I'll post an update explaining why later today or tomorrow morning. My apologies for my absence.

Welcome back ^^

I think it makes more sense when you realize Democratic Party people see politics as a game? A really violent game, like American football, but a game nonetheless. For them, this was a chance to take a stand against unfair play. A problem which is more real to them than the deaths of those they claim to represent.
