    Living in Canada, I don't have to worry about Trump...except for seeing his mug on the front of almost every news outlet on the net. That and maybe the Trump tower in Toronto falling over.

    From this side of the border, I personally can't stand the guy and can't understand how he managed to get in (aside from all of his money) and then actually win the presidential race.

    He was a dick on his show "The Apprentice" and he's still a dick running a country - IMO.

    Just wondering how the American folks (voted for him or not) on DA feel about how he's doing so far.

    He fucking sucks, I want him impeached as soon as possible, and since it was the electoral college that got him there I'm seriously pissed at their grand fucking decision!! Who's he gonna blow up next??

    I couldn't stand either choice. Hate Hillary Clinton and embarrassed as hell that someone who behaves like Trump (even outside the Whitehouse) can become a president. I didn't vote because I couldn't stand behind either of them with a clear conscience.

    When he got elected I immediately thought "here comes ww3." Now with the shit he's pulling, we're headed there fast. At least I know my house will be safe when the commies start dropping from planes. Then I heard how he thinks Mexico is going to pay for the wall and I lost all hope.

    And that's cool. Not voting is still a civic duty which is the same as abstaining from voting according to Robert's Rules of Order. Even in the MC's that I was in (I was an executive) Robert's Rules of Order were strictly adhered to on club elections and other votes (ie: prospects).

    I'm always amazed at how many people freak out when I say that I abstained and tore up my voting card and handed it to the Electoral person that was there. In Canada's last election I didn't like either of the 3 candidates (for Prime Minister - same as President) and didn't believe that they would carry out any of their campaign promises/goals so I went to the polling station, tore my voting card in half and handed it to the polling dude and told him that I "refuse my vote." There is a box that these polling people have to put these refused cards into.

    MC's count all abstain votes but in the larger picture, governments do not. Basically it comes down to being a vote of non-confidence. Not sure about the States, but Canada does count all of these votes. Problem is that there are not enough of them to make any government official take notice because, well, we are supposed to vote - one way or another - regardless if we trust the candidates or not and many folks just vote on one candidate or the other.

    I think it was Canada's 2013 elections and I looked up the votes: there were almost 2,000 votes of non-confidence. Another 15,000 and the government and potential candidates would have been forced to take notice.

    I got lectured shitless by a politics junkie when I told her I wasn't gonna vote. Sure, people died for the right to vote and others aren't allowed to vote at all, but I stopped voting for the lesser of two evils many years ago. I'd rather not vote than waste a vote.

    I voted for Trump. I do know that i did not want Hillary to be president. I think things are getting done but could happen faster. He is already president and what is done is done. Let's see what he can do. (or not do) But from my experience as a 46 year old man the President is not going to fix what is right or wrong with my life that would be up to me. Whether he stays for 4 years or 8. I will still be an US citizen and pretty sure no politician is going to help me much either way. Trump is not the Norm and i like that. Politicians for the first time have no idea if their jobs are safe or not. So I am going to strap myself in and hang on for dear life. Let's see where we end up. Again this is my opinion and i do not speak for all Trump voters.
