Democracy’s biggest flaw is even idiots have the vote. And on November 8 they voted in droves for one of their own.
Donald Trump’s first big test will be his choices for the cabinet posts.
After he offended Mexicans, the British, Muslims, the Chinese, Koreans, Europeans, and the Japanese, the person that he chooses as America’s top diplomat will need to be an accomplished professional, capable of repairing the almost irreparable damage.
That choice will tell the world whether the shock of the election justifies their concern.

The result of the 2016 US presidential election would’ve been completely different had the independents not split the vote. With only the addition of the votes in favor of Gary Johnson with those of Hillary Clinton, she would have won 308 electoral college votes. Gary Johnson is infamous for his response to the question on CNN about how he would solve the issue of Aleppo by asking “what is Aleppo?” The results in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin would’ve gone to Clinton instead of Trump.
Johnson’s aim was to make history. He did.
Donald, now that’s there’s no longer a reason to withhold them, let’s see those tax returns.
We know about the losses that you made in the 90’s where you compromised your creditors, but took full value on the tax write-offs. We know that you write off the value of your properties, even while they increase in value. All of that’s legal, but it’s still tax avoidance.
It will be interesting to see how you lead an administration that must fix the tax avoidance problem, as an admitted master of that scourge. Can you turn on your kind?
Before its decline, Rome had Caligula. Congratulations America, you have Donald Trump.
