our country is getting very depressing. What if a new president is elected and trump refuses to leave office? I was just in Winnipeg and the Canadians are all laughing at us (and so is the rest of the world). Maybe I should have stayed in Canada

I agree with you 100%.

The things I have learned since 2016 are that the polls mean absolutely 100% nothing. The other thing that I learned was that you can tell a lie and it does not matter. The third thing is you can change your point of view (Trump) 180 degrees and it still doesn't matter.

And, finally, the last thing is that George Orwell, writing in the late 1940s ("1984"), was 100% correct.

I also fear for the future. However, right now I do not recognize this country,

What keeps running through my mind is Germany saying during the 30's "it can't happen here". Well, I always thought "it" couldn't happen here. Well it is happening right before our eyes.

Nomis, that is precisely my fear, too. He has already made "noise" alluding that if he were not to win the election, it would be a "fake" result. And he also hinted that the army, the White Supremacists, and other idiots who he believes would back him, would create the uproar for him.

It always struck me as amazing how at every election point, we manage to change hands (and parties) so peaceably, until now. I fear for the future.

I'm skeptical that we can change things. If by some miracle we vote that disgusting person out I have my doubts he will leave quietly.

Very sad.

But I disagree that we have the power (to change things). The last presidential election sure proved that.
