This is how American citizens voted, county-by-county throughout the country.  What do you see?  Blue never had a chance.  Red is what the vast majority of the country wanted.  Not the vast majority of Americans, but then, we don’t live in a democracy.  We live in a Republic so our president is chosen based on what the majority of the country wants.   So look at how much of the country voted red and how much voted blue.

Of course, what people wanted wasn’t Trump exactly, but they wanted change.  And he was the only change on the ballot, so he was what we got.

This is what having only two viable but opposite parties to choose from has given us.  You now have four years to fix the problem if you don’t want it to happen again.  So — exactly what do you plan to do?  Besides complain, I mean…

    Small comfort that my county went blue and so did my state (Colorado).
