Like most people, I stayed up until the early hours of the morning last night watching the votes come in and saw Trump claim the 45th presidency of the United States. I have been doing my best to remain neutral throughout the election process since I'm Canadian and don't have any influence over the results anyways, but when I woke up this morning to a hoarde of angry people (both American and Canadian) that were upset at the result of the vote, I became very dissapointed. The result of the vote must be accepted because that's the political process in the States and it is not up for debate. The election determines the president. End of story. All these people that are angry should focus their attention on electoral reform if that is they change they want to see. But there is no longer anything they can do about Trump being president. They are stuck with him for the next few years and that is a fact they must come to terms with. I hope he does a good job, but now that is up to the government and the people he appoints to help him make important decisions. That is all I wanted to say.
