It is a horrible shock.
I am so sorry.
The impact it will have on my country is really freaking me out. Our immigration site crashed, and with all due respect to Americans hoping to seek refuge here, we don't have a very good economy to support them. We're already struggling with unemployment, our dollar is going to continue to decline. I'm worried for our future as much as I am for my neighbors down south.
Do you really think the people wanting to move to Canada will be much of a tax on your economy? The people scared and wise enough - and well-off enough - to go through with it will most likely bring more greatness to your country, don't you think?
I agree with you so much!!! As Ladyfair said, we are hurting because of the States too! I worry for everyone!
We are all scared of what idiot man (I refuse to call him anything else) will do. It is a well known fact that an unpopular American president immediately starts/fuels/engages in a war somewhere else in the world, to deflect.
I'm so sorry, dearest.
I am totally disgusted.
So so sorry :(
It's a terrible blow. We shouldn't be able to lift our faces under the loud of shame. But we will... we always do.
The rest of the Western world understand that you are a nation divided, and we understand there must be many people in agony right now. What we struggle to wrap our heads around is the other 50%...
This is one of the most depressing events I've ever experienced. It's like having a death in the family on the same day your house catches on fire. I just don't understand how anyone could actually vote for someone with no regard for women, minorities, immigrants, people of the LGBTQ communities, the disabled, the environment, the world and decency in general, to name a few. I plan on working to help elect members of Congress who can keep him from inflicting any more harm on the world. It's going to be a scary couple of years but now I'm ready to fight!
I understand what a tragedy it must feel like, I'm so sorry. If you feel strong enough to take on the establishment I am cheering you on every step on the way!
Yeah, fuck him!
Indeed - what a horrible turn!
Lately I have been falling behind answering comments, for many reasons. But I read and cherish all of them! Your comments make my day, yay!
