I completely failed to mention what actually concerns me about Trump's (99% confirmed) presidency is Pence standing right behind him. Pence is just ....hoboy. I can't. Someone else can field the fact on that guy, I've since closed the sources I've dug through and it just makes me too damn mad to go digging for that again. Weirrrd dude.
He's a good insurance policy. If somebody decides to actually assassinate Trump then we end up with a rightwing anti-everything-rainbow-left establishment Republican in control of the whitehouse, with a majority in house/senate, and the supreme court.
Contrary to what the media might make you think, Trump is a centrist dealmaker who jacked control of the presidency from the establishment. He could care less about what lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgender people do. Pence on the otherhand is the establishment with all it entails. Though all the /pol/ nicknames you probably heard are a bit of an exaggeration.
Can confirm; Canadian Immigration website was down for a good five hours during the closing night of the vote.
I find this particularly funny. My older brother is a nationalized Canadian and all these liberals I've seen posting have no idea HOW Canadian immigration works. The requirements are super stringent, even living with his native wife he had to keep up to date on residency and was in contact with an immigration officer several times a year. He has an MBA along with a Computer Science degree and it still took him six years to become an actual citizen.
Also, what the hell is up with the electoral college? It's like all votes are equal, but some are more equal than others. Up until this election I had never been vested enough in US politics to understand what that was or why it's around. Am I understanding correctly that it's an obsolete remnant of when America was a lot younger, and processing that volume of votes wasn't very feasible yet?
I used to think the exact same thing, but let an informed anon educate you my good leaf on the importance of the electoral college.
Remember Trump is apparently an ass, but he hasnt made a single move against legal immigrants. yet?
Illegal Immigrants... Trump has no beef with legal immigration, the Republicans certainly don't either. We recognize that demographics are shifting and that will play a part in the future. Hell look at Rubio, he's the future golden boy for republican latino americans.
What we don't want is democrats leaving the floodgates open to illegal immigrants then granting mass amnesty just to create a surge of guaranteed voters in southwestern states. Because that's exactly why they're doing it and you have to be going through some serious mental gymnastics if you think that isn't playing a major part.
