I Am Finished With Politics!

I am totally finished with politics and I am not just saying that frivolously. After last night's reality that Donald Trump has officially become the Republican Nominee for President, and the fact that Hillary Clinton will be the Democrat Nominee for President, the country is doomed either way. I just don't have an optimistic and hopeful feeling for the success of the Country going forward. I have officially stopped going to main news pages on the internet. The supposed right and the left wing news pages are so screwed up. They play with people's minds. It is sickening. What are your opinions? Are you as depressed as I am?

Things are definitely pretty bad. Both Trump and Clinton have exceptionally high unlikeability numbers. It's amazing they're doing as well as they are. Going to get mighty ugly before it all stops, I'm afraid.

Yes, the mud slinging and the potential of violent protests is something that most probably will happen.

@LeaPea2417 It really is pretty awful. I'm not looking forward to seeing what does happen.

Hi Anne. I know how this may seem to you, but look at what may come of it. I do not know your political leanings. But, I have always thought that there should be a middle ground. Personally, I think that now, there will be a shift to recognizing independents. It may take some time, but some things have to change. And there needs to be more inclusion.

Yes, hopefully Independents will start having more of a chance at winning with all that has happened.

@LeaPea2417 I hear ya. At the very least, the next president will have 4 years. And I think that doors need to open for independent candidates and voters in the primary.

@leapea2417 Having to choose between a mad man and a bad woman is a tough call. It's all very demoralising. We vote tomorrow for local elections and in June to stay in or leave Europe. Democracy is such hard work!

Interesting. I have not kept up with your news. Is it Northern Ireland or Southern Ireland who vote in June to stay in or leave Europe, Or both?

@LeaPea2417 Just the UK. The Republic has no desire to leave. Nor do I.

I am in full agreement @LeaPea2417 . This country is headed to hell in a handcart. I can't believe that Cruz dropped out although I wasn't a big fan of his either. I wanted Ben Carson. I told my family that I'd rather move to Australia, Russia, Germany, the UK, or any place else than stay here.

I liked Ted Cruz so I am pretty devastated by him dropping out when he did. And, I agree, it is a tempting thought to move to another country.

We'll have a repeat of 2012 with those who want to make a statement (that means nothing) either voting third party or staying home.

I keep praying that Sanders will take the Democratic nomination. I shudder at the thought of Trump in the White House.

Well, I am not voting for Hillary. To many things I do not like and disagree with her way of thinking. I do not think she is on women's side at all. I am glad Cruz dropped out. Who else is still in the race?
