I suspect I can safely speak for everyone here with the following:

Fuck you, 2016.

Seriously. Fuck you.

In the nose.

Right in the nose.

I've seen worse.

Between Brexit and Trump, we got confirmation that big gambles are still preferred over status quo failures (EU and Clinton, respectively). That's something Romney v Obama couldn't offer in 2012.

Sure, I've seen worse too. I imagine most of us could probably also agree on that.

I've also had better...

...root canals.

I'll go one further for everyone:




Go FUCK yourself 2016!

Up the ass!

WITHOUT LUBE!



But I'm dreading this year even more. Trump takes office in just 15 days. 2016 was just the opening act. This year, shit will start getting real. America is in for a very rough four years. I'm fine with that. Frankly, you idiots deserve the prick. But you're going to be inflicting him on the rest of the world too. Possibly going to start a trade war with China which will fuck everyone's shit up.

It's so nice to know you care. :roll:

Hey, you guys elected the ignorant bastard. Well, okay, maybe that isn't entirely accurate. The Electoral College picked your President for you. Not like he won democratically. But the events leading up to his nomination, that is on the American people. There were better choices, and you threw them away in favour of the two most hated nominees of all time. Americans say their country is all about freedom of choice? That's fine. You freely chose national disaster. I have no sympathy for you.

America is free to fuck up. Unfortunately, America is also a superpower that affects the rest of the world without even trying. I'm more worried about the rest of the world suffering because you elected an idiotic screaming manchild into office with his finger on the big red button.

Well, since I'm fairly certain that no one here voted for or even supported the orange buffoon at any step of the process, I'm not really sure who you're trying to point fingers at. But that being the case, I'm also fairly indifferent about the whole matter, since I have no reason to defend anyone involved.

What makes it even more depressing is that he'll be the second one in a row.

Sigh.

I dunno...I kinda feel you and I are victims of rigged party primaries here, to a much greater degree than any given New Zealander, and we're being blamed for it despite our best efforts to support candidates with merit instead of the two mutants. Seems an inappropriate to do to us (the victimizing and the blaming).

Discussion continued in The Electoral College, Democracy and Majoritarianism. ;)
