the silent majority is powerfull

[–]enkae7317 50 points51 points  (2 children)

One of the Hillary subreddit post was calling themselves the "true silent majority"

And had like 5k upvotes and 800+ comments.

Like LOL really? Silent? The media was on Hillary's side twenty four fucking seven. That doesn't seem so "silent" to me. We are the true silent majority.

Just a subministry ofTruth working hard. Antiestablishment resistance!

[–]bestmaleperformance 62 points63 points  (19 children)

This is really it, "think as you like in private". There are millions of strong men out there, who lead their women, who then also vote Trump, like my girlfriend.

Strong men don't bitch on social media, get into debates, or get in unnecessary confrontation wearing buttons and hats displaying whatever ideology.

That is not to criticize those who proudly wear their MAGA hats with no fear from weaklings however those are generally guys that feel in a position that cannot be lost, or guys that have no position of value to lose. Many men have careers where those beliefs could cause them problems and they stayed quiet, others even voiced praise for the opposition, but the truth was told in the voting booth.

[–]drumstyx 14 points15 points  (12 children)

I'd get hacked to bits by the mainstream for saying this, but Conservatives are truly oppressed in this day and age. In most careers, it's absolutely taboo to voice non-left views. Ironic considering they fancy themselves so open minded.

[–]Hexthorne 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I agree, and I'm a progressive (not a liberal, and not a democrat). When the DNC tossed Bernie it became pretty clear they were no longer the progressive party anymore, which seems to be falling into the lap of libertarians suddenly. I mean, we've know this for a while but it was a pretty solid confirmation that it was time to bail.

Back to your point - I have a lot a conservative and libertarian friends who feel really restricted in their work environment and thus have to let loose pretty regularly. It ends up being a great weekend bbq event for man talk though so I'm not really complaining.

[–]2 Senior Endorsed Contributorvengefully_yours 3 points4 points  (10 children)

To some extent yeah, it is taboo to go against the left. Wouldn't call it oppressive.

[–]themanbat 8 points9 points  (1 child)

When a "wrong" political opinion can cost you your job, I'd call that oppressive.

[–]enkae7317 2 points3 points  (0 children)

One of the 48 laws of power. Rule 38 to be exact. Think as you like but behave like others.

[–]joh2141 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I feel like this is more of a cultural thing with white people. There's no way of knowing this for sure without concrete data but political affiliations have always been a private thing for average white people who are active in politics. Because just being a Trump supporter labeled you racist and Clinton supporter a warmonger or corrupt even if you arent. On average white Americans don't like to talk about politics or who they vote for. But this is true. It is no one's business and you see why such approach is necessary.

[–]TheLionMAGA 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Not that my experience is the same as everyone else's, but I am a huge Trump supporter and have been since he first came down that escalator. I'm very active on all the chans and have been doing what I can to assist with all the digging of the leaks, propagating of the memes, etc. I really went all in.

But if you met me in real life, not only would I not tell you I am voting for him, I would actually allude to being on Clintons side (never truly express support for her, but if people say Trump is racist I would just nod). Because the reality is that I just want to be left alone.

I'm very glad that voting is a private affair. The election is actually much closer than I thought it would be though. It will be interesting to see what kind of changes the world will see over the next 8 years.

[–]RPFlame 8 points9 points  (0 children)

And there's a reason why the majority was silent, to start with. Turns out being crybullied and guilt-tripped until you vote a candidate doesn't work.

And they still don't fucking get it.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (6 children)

I'm not from America but literally every post on my facebook for months has been calling Trump a terrorist and supporting Hillary. I don't get how the majority actually voted for him then

[–]zeruel01 16 points17 points  (0 children)

because internet people is still a minority

[–]RPFlame 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]andhakanoon 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He might have been talking about Bill Clinton.

[–]DecrepitDelineation 148 points148 points [recovered]

Not all of us here are Trump supporters. While this sub and community indexes high for alt-right and Trump voters, there are still various political ideologies represented here.

With that said, the more important thing is that Hillary lost. Regardless of the merits or flaws of Trump, keeping Hillary and the prospect of her awful social policies out of power is the biggest win here tonight, whether you're a Trump fan or not.

[–][deleted] 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Yes, this was my mentality. NOT Hillary

[–]Jimmy_Big_Nuts 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Here here. Not a Trump supporter really, not a Hillary supporter either, but a part of me is happy that feminists, identity politics and the mainstream media and facebook/twitter types lost.

[–]2niczar 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Trump said the greatest risk to America was nuclear war.

Clinton wanted to go to war with Russia.

For the sake of humanity, I'm glad the cunt lost.

[–]xddm2653 12 points13 points  (3 children)

[–]iamaroosterilluzion 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Why's that? I'm curious because there isn't much overlap between Trump's policies and TRP

[–]scarletspider3 9 points10 points  (9 children)

A Trump victory would be a huge setback for the feminists

[–]candyman420 73 points74 points  (0 children)

I knew he would win as soon as I saw him own the stage against those other 13 or so republican choads. He was different, and people are desperate for different.

It's a game changer in that politically correct bullshit is finally being countered.

[–]bigcitytruth 27 points28 points  (3 children)

Devil's advocate here:

Maybe Trump won simply because Hillary was a shitty candidate, and it had nothing to do with alpha/beta or TRP. NAFTA wrecked the middle class and Obamacare is a failure. The Dems gave Bernie the shaft and instead propped up a weak candidate with a massive amount of baggage. You're deluding yourself if you think it's all just from Trump being alpha.

Now if we rewind to the Republican primaries -- then yes, it was because Trump was an alpha.

[–]drallcom3 7 points7 points [recovered]

People say Trump is an idiot, but the real idiot was Hillary Clinton. She didn't protect her dark past, she didn't capitalize on being a woman and having the minorities on her side. She just kept her mouth shut and seemed to believe she already won.

[–]Hexthorne 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You clearly don't live in a swing state - the media was all over promoting Clinton by any means possible. I think I've had to toss enough flyers to carpet several houses by this point, and that's to say nothing of the billboards, radio spots, and TV ads going out basically 24/7 for the last month.

[–]Senior Contributorexit_sandman 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Well, at least for the moment I am oddly pleased with the current outcome (despite thinking that Trump isn't exactly a good choice for president, to put it mildly) - and this less from a "what does this mean for TRP"-perspective or for ideological reasons (though I dislike Hillary as every other guy here), but simply because the result is a victory for democracy. Not because Trump won, but because Clinton didn't.

Because considering that the DNC (at times pretty transparently) rigged the election against Sanders to get Clinton through the primaries, the Democrats had it coming. The party establishment wanted their wildly unpopular candidate to get the nomination despite her being far from uncontested (and they even got a Republican opponent who was so unpresidential that any half decent candidate should have won against him), and this backfired spectacularly. But instead of pointing out the fishy way Clinton made it, the media constantly drummed up support at every given opportunity for her by casting Trump in the role of the villain (yes, even abroad where people couldn't vote for either candidate; especially abroad - for the last few months we (Germany) had a constant barrage of media coverage that basically presented Trump as the antichrist).

With Trump, the Republicans nominated the candidate of the basis against the candidates of the establishment. With Hillary, the Democrats nominated the candidate of the establishment against the candidate of the basis. Forget for a moment that Trump as a billionaire isn't exactly a humble man of the people either, the very fact that the elites in the parties and the media thought they knew better how people should think, act and, of course, vote, the fact that the elite consensus has been to shove Hillary down our collective throats as being the only viable option was tantamount to begging for this outcome.

Oh, and another reason why I am oddly pleased with this: because the phenomenon that "progressive" elites think they know better which opinions people should have, should be allowed to have, isn't just limited to the USA - the very same could be observed in Europe as well. In May, there was an election in Austria (you probably didn't notice it) where against all odds a staunch rightwing critic of the EU, immigration and Islam (all of which basically made him worse than Hitler in the eyes of the other side) almost won, despite the media, the EU elites and politicians in Austria and abroad drumming up support for the opposing candidate big time. Then the brexiteers won, under similar circumstances. Now Trump, again, same circumstances. And I really really like the idea that a bunch of self-righteous globalists who think that the world should be run like they want (and whose politics help running the world into the ground), and who think that their presumed moral superiority replaces the need for popular support (which they're only able to muster - barely - by cajoling and patronizing the population 24/7) are pissed off now. If results like these help fuel their doubts that they're on the "right", on the winning side of history, that they can rely on getting their way and pushing their agenda by using propaganda and other underhanded tactics... well, more power to those who make it happen.

[–]Squeezymypenisy 44 points45 points  (4 children)

Amazing that everyone is sitting here predicting what will happen when most couldn't even predict he would win. Relax and take a chill. Life will continue as always.

[–]_Trigglypuff_ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

All of reddit back-pedalling or in full meltdown. SJWs especially.

The signs were there, they could have rigged it for Clinton, so I'm not going to pretend I predicted anything. But the huge upheaval we are seeing this year belongs to everyone, young millenials are crying on their social media despite not even showing up to the polls as usual, trying to gain attention than actually take part in the world.

This is beginning of the pushback.

Enjoy it friends.

Brexit, American style

its seem to me, given a choice between a misogynistic, and an misandrist, we'd pick the man. seems to be Americans still value male leadership, irregardless of the faults, over a conniving woman.

this gives me much hope. if only the guy turns out to be a good leader. it would fortify my faith.

[–]CQC3 26 points27 points  (2 children)

You know, the whole thing about that "sexual assault" that irritates me is that he said NOTHING of the sort and none of what he actually said was incorrect.

They accuse him of bragging about sexual assault, but all he said was that if you're a superstar (or rockstar was it?) that they'll let you do anything, they'll even let you grab em by the pussy. Why don't we ask ol' Mick Jagger if that's true, he's probably been with so many girls that voraciously presented themselves to him--an actual rock star.

Tell em Mick! Tell em! Tell em how you grabbed em by the pussy. We need you Mick.

Women throwing themselves at a man with extremely high social status? NO WAY, nope couldn't happen. People act like this is some fucking insidious lost arcane knowledge that they deny ever existed.

Don't put too much stock in this. Hillary will likely win the popular (total number of votes, period) vote or come very close.

As a practical matter, nearly all presidential elections (regardless of candidates) are quite close percentage-wise, so drawing conclusions about society from this is . . . foolish at the least.

While this can seem to be depressing, that the gynocracy seems to hold so much sway, not all of us viewed this election quite as starkly in terms of gender. So chill out and realize that you, as an individual, don't have much to take away in terms of gender issues from this election.

That's a good thing! Your prospects in terms of gender relations aren't much impacted or signaled by this election. Life mostly goes on as we've known it before, with pitfalls yet opportunities to be seized just as always.

[–]Orbiter42 9 points10 points  (1 child)

O, i realize everything you say is true. every women in my life, hates this dude, him being elected, means nothing.

but it remains, the person who celebrated breaking the glass ceiling, who promised to fix the mythical wage gap, who shamed her husbands lovers, who would do anything to be elected, was put down by a man that could brag about shagging nearly woman he choose, could go bankrupt and make his lenders pay his bills.

a man who understands power. i would like to disapprove of his behavior, but he's now the leader of the free world. it makes one pause.

[–]PowerVitamin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Consider it a "second chance".

[–]aRedThought 136 points137 points  (16 children)

First candidate to game his way to the presidency.

-Freedom of outcome

-Not giving a fuck

-Debate skills trp af

-Funny as hell when speaking

-God level frame

EDIT: Game single-handedly made a man with no political experience the president of the united states. Never underestimate the power of being able to sell yourself as a product.

If this man can get more than half of America to vote for him, you can get a woman to sleep with you using the same strategy. (Sexual strategy is Amoral)

[–]TheGillos 53 points54 points  (12 children)

He constantly broke frame. He's too emotional.

He had his moments though, and compared to Hillary's robotic feminist claptrap I guess I shouldn't be so surprised he won...

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (1 child)

What I liked though is that even when he broke frame, he would later carry on like nothing happened. Amused Mastery as a recovery.

[–]aRedThought 11 points12 points  (0 children)

His frame is almost unhuman. I thought he would crumble after the sexual assault allegations came out but he just denied everything.

I'm both suprised and not suprised that America would elect this fucking guy

[–]aRedThought 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Oh yea you're not wrong, he had his bad moments. The most important thing is that he held frame when it mattered. When it came down to it, he stayed Trump even in the face of everyone that hated him - The media, the government, the American populace.

[–]through_a_ways 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Personally, I thought he was at his best during the primary campaign. I don't think he performed as well in the hillary debates, except for some strategic put downs.

He seemed more "tired" to me during the hillary debates, but I guess at that point the ball had gotten rolling enough in his direction, plus her scandals.

[–]Entrefut 9 points10 points  (5 children)

I honestly believe if Bernie got the democratic nomination he would have won by a land slide.

[–]_the_shape_ 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Maybe, but he demonstrated an irreconcilable, tremendous amount of weakness when he endorsed Hillary (despite designing his platform around an anti-establishment message) and allowing those two petulant girls in Washington (I think it was?) to jump up on stage and rip the mic from him. If two loud-mouthed civilians can boss him around like that, imagine what someone like Putin could do to him..

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

he didnt mind that wikileaks proved she stole the primary either.

[–]blackchadthundercock 2 points2 points [recovered]

Fucking beautiful. I have such a justice-rection right now.

After all the slandering by the mainstream media, by feminists, by celebrities, by Saturday Night Live who at one point said "Let me introduce - can we say this yet? PRESIDENT CLINTON". After Louis CK going on Conan to tell us all how "we need a mother" to lead this country. After all the star-power and anti-trump bullshit being thrown his way, it just feels so good that all of that has been overcome and finally this PC movement of safe space, check-your-privilege idiots has taken such a massive hit, along with obviously the Washington-elite as well.

Fucking glorious. What a massive step in the right direction.

I'm proud of you, 'Merica.

[–]shadowchicken85 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Same here. I am neither conservative nor liberal, but most of my friends and family are quite liberal people. Seeing them cry, rage, worrying about Trump will lead us to the apocalypse, a few are considering selling all their assets/property and moving abroad, and other similar hysterical bouts of fear. I've been trying my hardest not to laugh my ass off.

For the record: I didn't vote or support Trump (nor any candidate.) I just found this whole election to be interesting.

[–]ShouldersofGiants127 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]COUTS_132 23 points23 points [recovered]

I'm proud to say I saw this coming 18 months ago. I waivered. I doubted. But in the end, I believed, and now I rejoice.

And I'm not even American. As a European, I believe this sends a very strong message worldwide: people don't want to be dominated by the establishment. I hope the rest of the world follows suit and drains all of the swamps.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Yup I liked him ever since he announced. I had no idea if he was going to make it but I hoped. Shit, I had doubts just an hour ago. But I'm really happy to see how it goes not being business as usual. Clinton was going to be just such a let down for me.

[–]COUTS_132 3 points3 points [recovered]

Shit, I had doubts just an hour ago.

This whole day there was a 50% chance in my mind that Trump would win. It'd all go down to the silent voters. But you have no idea how even in Europe there isn't a single news outlet covering a single positive aspect of Trump. Coverage of the election in the US was all pro-Hillary. I was hanging onto the skin of my teeth, thinking "this can't be it, we can't have come this far only to be denied now". I'm so relieved, man. Today was a good day.

I hope Trump does a good job. I still don't know what he stands for / plans to do / will actually be able to do on any number of policy points, so I guess have to have fingers crossed.

But I do know that Clinton represented EVERYTHING that was worst about the American smug, self-satisfied elite. All kinds of love for Goldman Sachs but none for people just trying to save for retirement and to leave something for their kids. All kinds of love for ghetto social work and public-private venture scammers but zero for hard-working black guys. Praised as "smart" but basically couldn't find her ass with her hands and a flashlight in four years as Secretary of State.

[–]Senior Contributorexit_sandman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But I do know that Clinton represented EVERYTHING that was worst about the American smug, self-satisfied elite.

You forgot to mention that the primaries were rigged in her favor in order to avoid making the more popular Sanders the Democrat candidate. I.e. her candidacy was a big Fuck You to people who think their vote should count, because said self-satisfied elite knows better than the plebs who should be allowed to be in charge.

[–]j3nbu 4 points5 points  (1 child)

[–]DUDETUDE101 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Donald Trump is one of the best holders of frame I have ever seen. His frame was crazy, bigoted, divisive, rash, fresh but he never budged on it. Not once. Heck in the last debate, every time he was questioned about the sexual assault claims against him he responded with "locker room talk" every time. Even when that answer didn't make sense. When asked if he would accept the results of the election (having claimed possible fraudulent voting) he replied "if I win!". It barely matters if your frame makes sense. All that matters is that your frame is strong and unchanging. People follow the strong. Even when the strong don't make sense.

[–]CypherWolf21 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I don't feel like a trump presidency is a win. But I do feel that avoiding a Clinton presidency is a definite win.

As usual we get the lesser of two evils thanks to first past the post voting.

[–]Transmigratory 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I think the UK election, Brexit and Trump showed us we should stop looking at the bloody polls and perhaps pay more attention to media which ordinary people read rather than dismiss them.

Gonna be honest, I don't know what Trump will do: no-one does. Hence the market reactions. That's due to uncertainty, as far as they're concerned, they don't know about him and his views properly. Though once he begins talking it might get better.

One might say I'm being premature in assuming a Trump presidency at this point. However I looking at the results right now and what sort of turn around Hilary needs, I'd hazard a guess and say the odds are severely against her.

I suspect that there are a lot of cultural forces caused by socio-economic factors which gave rise to those forces... However on TRP front, let's be blunt: if you're gonna marginalise white males. Then you should expect results. Note: white males make up a lot of Britain and the US.

I don't know what Trump will do, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. Personally I dislike Brexit as it makes my industry a tad risky, but if ya'll trade, then take this chance. The smartest of you would have done do earlier, but you might get another chance assuming the current dollar correction is a small correction prior another dip.

Though I really hope Trump doesn't just become a puppet who does what advisers tell him to do.

[–]2comment 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–]vagbutters 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I hated both of these candidates, but I absolutely loved parts of Trump's campaign-- specifically the part that attacked the PC shitstorm that has dominated the landscape for so long.

Politics doesn't have a place in RP, but the principles of RP that politicians use should be discussed to generalize the US population.

Also how funny is it that women's vote was barely affected by his "scandal?" Almost like women respected his so-called misogyny.

[–]mdcrubengonza 3 points4 points  (2 children)

It's just the beginning. Trump will likely face impeachment attempts for sneezing from the Republicucks. Now is the time for you men to pull out the knives and start addressing the pussy's woes. If you have not been lifting for the last year or so, start.

Tightening border control, fiscal conservativism and throwing out things like the TPP isn't lunacy - it's a sound policy and something America has needed for a long time. I don't know how he's going to handle himself, but it sure as shit is great to see the establishment getting their teeth kicked in. It's laughable that the man has so many opponents, just because he's confident about his appreciation for the country he lives in.

There's such a thing as nationalism, but there sure as shit is also such a thing as admirable patriotism. Good job, America. Treat yourself to a rest before proceeding to MAKE THAT COUNTRY GREAT AGAIN!

[–]cosine88 20 points21 points  (9 children)

I wanted to vote for him but abstained completely because I see a very nonzero chance of him starting a nuclear war.

I have to admit I smiled a bit tonight though. The entire media was against him, he was down in the polls just like Brexit. The outcome tells me the media really does have a liberal bias.

[–]2niczar 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Trump wants peace with Russia. Clinton wanted war. Who's the Hitler here?

[–]fcjnews 12 points12 points [recovered]

If you had a bias wouldn't you skew the polls slightly in your opponent's direction to encourage more turnout in yours?

[–]Senior Contributorexit_sandman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't know why you get downvoted for a reasonable question.

Well, I guess the general idea is that by underplaying someone's expected success, you encourage his sympathizers to stay at home (because voting for him "won't change the outcome anyway") and you're aiming at changing their minds (people like winners, few want to stick to the marginalized underdog who doesn't stand a chance).

[–]PowerVitamin 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The polls were actually in his favour if you pay attention to trends at state polling. Even without the 'monster vote' (aka new voters and shy voters) he was still favoured to win with November 8th polling and state trends.

[–]scotty_u 19 points19 points [recovered]

The single-mindedness expressed by some here is mind-boggling.

We live in precariously crafted web of global security where deranged dictators have nuclear weapons. We just elected someone who has explicitly undermined that web of security (because fuck NATO...), has no expertise in the matter, and has expressed a complete disdain for those who do. He's inheriting the keys to the most powerful country ever and a presidency with more power than ever before.

Throw in the fact that he's undermined the democratic process, threatened to throw his political opponent in jail and sue unfriendly press, and has no opposition since his spineless party has the majority in every branch of government.

But let's all celebrate because it'll totally make the SJW's sad.

I'm an Aussie who has been watching the US elections on TV all day, and I'm not surprised Trump is winning, mainly becoz the 'murican people are sick of the fucking 'establishment', which "promises much and delivers little"

I'm looking at this as a curiousity but I can see a 'cultural shift' occuring in the US, where people begin to avoid "all the Bullshit". those things they now know aren't true/for real. I've no idea how this will play out but I can't see Trump 'getting the opportunity' to change much just yet and if he pushes too hard he just might get JFK'd!

Trump is a rogue compared to the Clinton/democrat world

The POTUS is really just a figurehead surrounded by 'advisors' from all sorts of areas, together with Congress which 'has it's own mind' so to speak.

So it's not like Trump is going to be able to do "whatever he wants" once he becomes the POTUS, Uh uh. Even if he does want to change something major, unless he sneakily get enough votes to pass it and has it put to the House on Xmas eve or Superbowl or similar (while no one's watching the Govt, currently Obama's SOP for getting "dodgy Bills passed in the Senate1) so it might work, and get through .. lol

I honestly can't imagine him doing much worse "for the average human on earth" than the US govt have succeeded in doing in the past 8+yrs. War, war, war, "and if there's No wars happening, we'll make one" ... SOP for the DoD and MIC

It will be interesting to see what he thinks about 'the wall' in 6mths time

We watched Obama go from Independent thinker to a puppet becoz of these 'shadow masters', the true "Powers that Be" making him do things he didn't really want to, ... TPTB are originally 'Bankers'. They are now called "presidential advisors" and 'we' don't know who they really are!

So should Mr Trump get a bit too big for his boots, he will be 'reigned in' one way or another. And should he "fail to comply", and if worst comes to worst, there are many ways he can be 'disappeared, a heart attack would do, but there's better press if "some devoted Hillary Clinton follower was so angry that Hillary didn't win, became obsessed with killing Trump, and so somehow she's able to get past all the security and Bang!

Or there might be a grassy knoll type scenario .. these guys have done this shit before you know!

There are many far more powerful people on this planet than Donald Trump -- and 'we've' never heard anything about them, which is just how 'they' like it.

The POTUS has been "doing what he's Told to Do" since JFK, the last POTUS to go against TPTB

At least Trump isn't scared of changing his mind, or admitting to his fuck up, which is refreshing for average person who's seen so much bullshit come out of everybody else's mouths

I think Trump will be full of surprises (and "changes of heart/conscience"!)

Well fucking said. Trump is a caricature of masculinity. An overgrown 12 year old blowhard. Lincoln was a real man. Eisenhower was a real man. This clown is completely unfit to be in command.

[–]danishih 7 points8 points  (0 children)

i call it the trump-hamster. people here will bend in two to rationalize his every word and action.

it devalues this community.

[–]BassNet 3 points4 points  (9 children)

As far as 'survival of the planet' goes, I don't see Trump's win helping our case. The guy doesn't believe in climate change. And he's too emotional - I can see him going to war with another country over nonsense. He also wants to redraw longstanding trade agreements, which could be terrible for the global economy.

[–]Kynandra 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Yeah it's a shame we don't have some sort of checks and balances system in place so we can't just go off to war. People blame trump for not knowing anything about government when it's clear they themselves are clueless.

[–]roeddit 11 points11 points [recovered]

The US hasn't declared war since before Vietnam - we can do plenty of damage while circumventing those checks and balances.

[–]Tacotuesdayftw 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I tend to lean left these days, but the way liberals acted throughout this election made me want to vomit. We already know far left people think of themselves as high and mighty do gooders who can do no wrong fighting the big and evil republicans, but the way they generalized and stereotyped Trump supporters was disgusting.

"Racists, sexists, deplorables, bigots, etc." It was really crazy to think of people who pride themselves on being open minded be so offended by jokes and locker room bullshit. People who stand up against generalizations and stereotyping giving the harshest stereotyping I have heard in a long time.

You can't demonize white people and expect them to vote in your favor. If anything, those insults to Trump supporters just encouraged them to go vote. It gave them all passion, in which no one had for Hillary who has already proven to not be the Democrats' first choice (Obama's winning primary.) Trump supporters rustled jimmies, and the Hillary supporters played right into it. Right when he got the nomination, the media tried to take him down for not being PC even though that's why he got the nomination in the first place. So moronic.

I don't agree with everything Trump plans to do as president, but the wrench he just threw in the system is going to change things for sure.

[–]FubukiAmagi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I decided just yesterday to vote for Trump instead of Johnson, my original choice. I agree with a lot of Trump's policies, but my desire to see our nation shaken up was the main reason I went for it. Like you said, it was a "fuck it, let's do it" moment.

[–]backdoorbum 4 points5 points  (0 children)

PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP

feels so good to say that

[–]freejosephk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Obviously you're right, and it's in large part because people (and men) can smell the bullshit, so we voted against it (I voted Stein and was Bernie or bust before then). It's entirely congruent with a Red Pill over Blue Pill phenomena.

[–]NeoreactionSafe 7 points8 points  (6 children)

 

Trump will bring Truth

 

...something that hasn't existed in American politics since JFK.

[–]beginner_ 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yeah my boss just said he wouldn't be too surprised if Trump gets offed in the next 2 years. Had not considered that but makes sense. Sad world we live in...

On the other hand it would make him a martyr. In the end he is just one guy and he will not magically be able to solve issues with health care and poor economy. Just letting him fail would probably be the better choice.

[–]_the_shape_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The same was said of Obama over and over and over and over, and he's still with us, campaigning alongside a criminal and urging the people to CHEW SOAP a week before the election

Trump, who ran against the status quo, is going to stock his cabinet with people like Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani. You losers fell for his obvious line of bullshit. Have fun with all this.

[–]Makonar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Feminist and SJW women and men like to scream and shout, and to meet up for protest, since they can drink their favourite starbucks early morning, gossip and after a few hours, the can resume going shopping or watching their twitter feeds, but they seldom lack the leg muscle to go and stand in line to the voting boots and actually participate in the voting. It's like voting being anonymous is not a good way to virtue signal how pro pussy they are...
It was the same with that one girl from the front page meme a few months ago: who donated to Bernie Sanders, campained for him, was posting and reposting like crazy and talked about him all the time... but in the end, she didn't vote... because voting itself was not a good occasion to tell people how great she was...

[–]Trail_of_Jeers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I saw it coming. His charisma, his message, his ability to say what ordinary folk say and ignore critics. His SMV - Women always vote with their vagina. The size of the crowds.

I called it when he won the primaries.

[–]manwhowouldbeking 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Trump won because he did the work. Look at how hard he fought in the battleground states, look how he created simple to understand policy messages look how he had an affable likeable personality how he used dread game and amused mastery. Then look what hillary did, nothing. Her campaign boiled down vote for me because i'm a woman. Trumps was a call to action to make america great again hillary had i'm with her.

[–]TechnoRaptor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i have on multiple occasions had to say I supported Hillary to avoid triggering people, girls i was hooking up with, accuintances at work ect. Hillary was my public, Trump was my private

[–]fearl3ss 12 points13 points  (53 children)

Dow futures down over 600 points. Gee, thanks. Really happy about my "outlook for the future."

Losers and white trash voted him in, because "muh manufacturing jobs were taken away from me." He appealed to the Walmart portion of the population - rural, uneducated trash who were jealous of illegal immigrants' jobs at the factory!

You say your money's on this, but your Trump support proves to me you have none.

Look at who DIDN'T vote for him:

  • College educated people
  • People with high net worth
  • People who live in major cities

In other words, high value people. Donald Trump cons betas just like he conned them at Trump University.

[–]atradervish 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Brexit caused their stocks to drop..and it went right back up after a few days. Bitch.

[–]OhAndOneMoreThing 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I also voted for him. I have 2 college degrees, one in Political Science, the other in Psychology. I'm no millionaire, but I pull down ~$60k, own my own home, car paid off, nice stuff, etc. Oh, I also live in a major city.

In other words, according to YOUR criteria, I am a high value person. I forgot to mention also, that I am black. You know why I voted for Trump? Because I wasn't offended by anything he said. When he asked black people what they had to lose I thought it was hilarious. Why would I be offended? I've been working since I was 14. He wasn't calling me out. Liberals are so worried about what minorities "should" be offended by that it makes me physically ill. I don't need your fucking help, I have a better life than you.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

$60k and own a house in a city? I'm paid more than double what you are and cannot afford a house in my city.

[–]BassNet 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Well clearly wealthy people who understand market dynamics didn't vote for Trump because everybody who invested in the stock market is taking their money out and betting against the economy. Maybe it's good for 'muh social issues' but this isn't good for the economy.

[–]lol_What_Is_Effort 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Well clearly wealthy people who understand market dynamics didn't vote for Trump

I am personally close with a number of people (two senior VP's with over $750 million AUM at a top-3 Wealth Management firm to be specific) who were dead-set against Hillary, and as a result were pounding the table for Trump. In other words, you're wrong.

[–]BassNet 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Go ahead and ask them how their futures are doing. While you're at it, you might want to remind them to wake up early so they don't take major losses when markets open tomorrow.

[–]jonboy418 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The market reacts to uncertainty, not to party politics. When Obama won in 2008, the Dow went down 5% the next day. When he won again 2012, the Dow still went down 2.5%. This is par for the course.

I honestly believe Trump won because of the arrogance of the elite. Whether that's the political elite, media elite, wealthy elite, or urban elite. What's heard is that they are non-educated "Muricans" who happen to have a voice. They established their voice today, like it or not.

I'm not happy Trump won. He wasn't my candidate, but I hope there's an introspection within this country that causes such a deep divide in identity politics. Being a woman in this election does not entitle you to call any opposition as sexist. It's actually quite the opposite.

[–]Jebytu 27 points28 points  (8 children)

Are you insinuating that people who live in rural areas are " low value "? What the hell type of comment is that

[–]fearl3ss -2 points-1 points  (6 children)

Typically correlated with low value, absolutely.

Most high value people frequently travel and have their home base in a major city. They don't live in Small Town, USA.

[–]Jebytu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Coming from " small town USA " I can tell you it's not what you think. It's better than the city in my opinion. I live about 30 mins from St. Louis for reference. It's great.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Bullshit - plenty of high value people have a nice large family home in the country and often their city pad is for when they need to be in the city for days on end and don't want to do a very long commute.

[–]BENDERisGRREAT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah there are plenty of guys in rural america that could by your house with cash

[–]BENDERisGRREAT 9 points10 points  (2 children)

There are way more people that have alpha characteristics in rural areas than there are in cities per capita.

Think about the emphasis trp puts on the gym, most rural males are stronger in most ways than the pretty boy city gym guys

How many small town USA guys do you think you'll get away with challenging or talking shit to?

Trp value people voted for Trump, they might not know about trpanation, but they are

Edit: Don't confuse wealth with value. That's a beta view

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Trump is the only one who can lead us in this cultural war we are facing. The United States is in shambles and he's the leader we need to recover from the pathetic stance we've taken on almost all social issues.

[–]Enlightened_Chimp 20 points21 points  (16 children)

Wtf is this shit? I have an engineering degree and MBA, make greater than 200k per year and live in a major city and I voted for Trump. The media cons betas, feminists and those with malleable minds into voting for Hillary. Social media is one big mindfuck where millenials are baited into voting for Hillary because if you post "Go Trump" everyone will tell you to get out of America. Many people who aren't loud mouthed liberals who can actually think rationally without needing the media to tell them what to do voted for Trump. You wouldn't know this because we don't spew it all over social media like a fucking democratic water hose.

[–]Transmigratory 1 point2 points  (5 children)

He's not wrong though, the markets reacted horribly to this: were you watching the charts as the results came in?

However should he get into office, there's a chance for him to put his money where his mouth is. I.E. we'll see who got conned.

[–]BENDERisGRREAT 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Markets always go down when change happens, this idiots mistake is thinking theyll stay down (see Brexit)

[–]Transmigratory 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Ain't going to lie to you, mate. At present it looks like he is a shitty choice. However since you guys did vote him in, you might as well see what he can do.

Perhaps open a trading account and benefit from shorting the USD from all the potential shittery this guy could do. Or long if he turns out to be decent.

Stock market crash is because the markets were reflecting that Clinton gets elected because that is what everyone said. Now a surprise happened which results in uncertainty which will always lower stock prices. They will recover in couple of weeks after the new reality has set in. Good time to buy now!!!
