Voter's Remorse is coming.

I read an article several months ago by Michael Moore that the angry white male vote will propel the demagogue Donald Trump to the White House.  He was hoping he would be wrong but boy was he right.  Donald won and mostly from middle America.  The more diverse and progressive states went to Hillary.  I feel this election was mostly a protest vote by the privileged white male for loosing their influence in a society that is giving more equal rights for minorities, women and LGBT.  They are angry at the status quo because their ways are changing for the better.  It did not matter that Donald is caught in the act of boosting to be a sex offender.  It did not matter that Donald refuses to release his income tax in fear that his unsavory business dealings will be expose.  It did not matter that Donald does not really know how to run a country.  Facts did not matter.  All that mattered is that they are angry at the politicians and wanted to give their middle finger through their votes.  All established politicians starting from the primaries to the general election lost to the "outsider" Donald.  And the voters did prevail in voicing their anger.  Well this is how our democracy works .  The majority of the Electoral Colleges select the president.

But the sad part of all these fiasco is everybody will suffer from the repercussion of a Trump presidency.  Stock market will suffer in the long run.  The economy will suffer.  And guess what?  Even those who voted for Trump will also feel the folly of their actions.  In fact, I will venture to say that those "red" states will suffer more than the progressive "blue" states.  So the jokes on those who voted for Trump.  Soon enough they will have voter's remorse.
