What's Your Reaction to the Election?
As I write this, Trump is up by 2,000 votes in Pa. and appears to have even won in Northampton County. He's head in Michigan and Wisconsin, and appears to be poised to win the Presidency. I'm too exhausted from a long day at the polls to watch to conclusion. Hillary was a lousy candidate, but I expected her to win. Even if she does pull it out, I think the message voters are sending is that they are tired of crony capitalism and insider establishment politics. But they elected a person who himself is a self-promoting con artist and who has historically been one of those establishment insiders. I do think the country will survive, but only barely.
