I like a story with a happy ending. Despite the odds, Trump was successful and the American people have spoken. What a pleasant surprise. All the best...

+1

let us hope that this result helps to decrease the number of professional politicians, the influence of "the party" and brings more untied individuals into the governments all over the world.
Once again the silent majority has spoken. The question is: will they understand or just search for a usefull explanation?

I would like to think that this is something we started here when we shouted: "Suz for president!"

yes a very interesting outcome and a big kick in the pants for established political machine...even the polls are getting a ribbing now for having it so far wrong
heard a good portion of Trumps acceptance speach and Hillary's slightly less happy one...BOTH were very very very pleasant to hear and both were polite and gave praise to the other...what a breath of fresh air.
Good luck Donald,may God help you to guide America back to the greatness we all know it can be.

Yep, a pleasant surprise. we didn't turn on the TV, Radio, or Internet last night. Just went to bed and got a good nights sleep. SWMBO got an email about quarter to 8 this morning and cheered. Here is a very interesting perspective on why this upset occurred. Be forewarned, it lacks politically correctness but it explains that its not about Republican vs Democrat.

Good find SlimJ! It's a long article but it's points are right-on. Lots of one-liners that I wish I had the memory to be able to defend my views with. I can relate to that guy's city vs rural comparison too. What's weird is where I live, a small rural based city that has the attitude of big city. I noticed it soon after I moved here and as it turns out it's a Democrat state. I swear the people don't know how good they have it here, but act as if they have big city problems so end up denigrating the rural possibilities of friendliness and co-operation.

Just a few miles from here is a small farming community (or two actually) that if you moved there you'd be in a whole nuther world, because they know the advantages of rural and they act rural and they have the best schools in the county, the parents of student age kids still talk in the grocery store about the recent high school football games and it's very refreshing.

On local television if there's a crisis somewhere they always try to compare it to my area and try to come up with solutions just in case it happens here, always keeping us on edge. In the rural areas they take care of each other and really don't give a rat's behind about the big city crisis, because they have it so good here and they know it. They take care of any little or any big problem with the help of their neighbors who have been living that way for generations, the original pioneers families are still here living the same pioneering life they always have lived. Because it freekin works!

Not all the country boys and girls grew up in the country. Some of us grew up in the city too. Most of us were smart enough to get out of the city.

True Paulie, I spent most of my life in cities but my roots and branches are all in the country (except for the music)...I guess mostly it's what's in your heart and there are plenty of people that will never leave the "security" of the city. They feel vulnerable outside the city and just don't know what to do. Interestingly we call them sheeple, when in fact they only resemble the sheep's mob mentality and not the sheep ability to weather a storm. Families that want a better ability to survive when the mob mentality goes wrong, move to the country where the city mob has no clue.

I had a good high school friend move here (from Az.) just after I did. He and his wife got jobs in a small coastal town (I would just die to get a job there) and one of the first things they mused about was that there wasn't even a bowling alley!! Now he's always been an avid hunter and fisher and just moved to heaven on earth for that sort of thing, but his wife feels neglected because there's very limited shopping and entertainment in this small town. Instead of figuring out a simpler way of life, they got divorced. Freaks me out that it meant so much to both of them. You get my drift....I forgot my point...
good night...

So anyway the sheeple have their place and their survivability factors and they're happy with it, they just don't know a better way. I've never yearned to live in a big city but sometimes necessity warrants what cha gotta do.

Suz

I'm hearing you loud and clear Suz. I have seen so many people do exactly the same thing as your friend.

I would go bush and set up house in a heartbeat if I could. However my wife, even though born in the country, lived her early childhood on largish farms and her father being a shearer, simply will not even remotely consider leaving the big smoke, the rat race.

There are parts of this country that overlook the ocean and, within a short drive, have more deer than you could shoot, that would be absolutely outstanding to set up a hut and quietly disappear. Unfortunately those spots are within National Parks so they are 'out of bounds'.

This is one spot my father and uncle took me out to as a child... Tabbigai Cliff Dwellers . A couple of the guys, friends of my uncle, were still living there at that time and I remember thinking how awesome it would be to live there, far away from the clutter of civilisation. When I went there, the building suspended out over the water was still in use, and the small wooden hut, which was the toilet, was still in use. I visited it a couple of years ago, but unfortunately all that is left is the bare caves.

well I was born and spent first 12 years in a town not quite big enough to be classed as a city...then shifted into the boonies...20kms from nearest shop
then came south and lived in city and couldnt seem to get away from it for years ,now we live in a small town close to the country and find things ideal...... wifey was a city girl and has adapted to small town life to the extent she goes into city for groceries (cheaper than town) and cant get hom quick enough.
