Grr. Cocked up the start of this thread, so here's my second attempt!

This will be a very ephemeral thread and I may well survive for less than two hours. Bloody late this end and I'm runnning out of red (wine, not Trumpery).

Florida looking good for Clinton, eh? Are things looking up?

I'm watching on Freeview. Channel 130 is BBC News, 131 is BBC Parliament, 132 is Sky News and, since Al Jez quit the next is 135, RT. They are all covering the election. RT is like a different planet, it always is of course. I'm mostly watching Andrew Neil on BBC News and BBC 1. I don't really get what is being reported. I only learned today that Americans are not allowed to actually vote for their president. There's a whole bunch of people who do that for them. Weird.

City Of New Orleans
Steve Goodman





Riding
on the City of New Orleans
Illinois Central, Monday morning rail
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail
All along the southbound odyssey
The train pulls out at Kankakee
And rolls along past houses, farms and fields
Passing trains that have no name
And freight yards full of old black men
And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles

Good morning America, how are you
Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

ake, give it a rest. There are people here who are sad and frightened. Sad, because I really thought that Americans, by and large, are smarter than this and frightened because it appears that this country - and therefore, the WORLD - will be in the hands of a megalomaniac.

Oh, hell. Go ahead and have a good giggle. You'll sober up soon enough. You too in all likelihood are going to suffer.

I have spent the last 2 months traveling the United States. I visited 30 states. I found I needed to be careful what I said, all over the country. It was clear to me that support for Trump was strong, but I did not realize it would be strong enough to win this election. I think it is clear that Trump has won and that the Republicans have a majority in both houses of Congress, but there is still a slight chance that Clinton will squeak out a victory.
The issue I worry about most is immigration. What happens to the 11 million undocumented immigrants who are living in the United States, some for decades? And the Mexican border already looks very much like the Berlin Wall. Will he really build a wall that is even worse?

I'm sorry you feel bad and I have always said that I admire the American people......they really can be a great nation, but not without the socially conservative majority.

Mrs Clinton represented big money and the consequential political corruption; people were tired of the lack of representation.....To morrow is a new day

We can rise above this, it is definitely within the realm of the possible, and even the probable if one tskes a historical perspective.

Let us know, Ake, if and when you decide you may perhaps know less about the complexities of USA society and politics than those of us who live here, care about our own country, the larger world, and are of at least low average intelligence.

Sorry, I have a preference for the King James bible.
here is a more modern translation:

New American Standard Bible
"He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much."

In other words, if he is dishonest in his personal & business dealings, you can expect him to be, basically, the same in his dealings as President.

Of course, if he doesn't restore the rust belt industries with full payrolls there are going to be an awful lot of blue collar ex-workers who are going to be awfully pissed-off. One big problem is that robots would be doing most of those jobs even if the factories came back.
