Do what? Start a political post that'll start a shitstorm on OCMOTO and turn people against each other and into keyboard warriors? Oh wait, that's you.

Just kidding.

The reality is I would have the same thoughts had it gone the other way. Good thing nothing will change big money will still be the real driving force in this county. :(

Well I didn't vote for either candidate, however I did vote for legalized marijuana and gun control. I don't want hopped up pot heads to have access to guns!  ;)

Totally agree. At least we didn't vote a CRIMINAL as POTUS.

On the other hand...California voted to allow violent criminals out of jail...constantly in the spotlight and we just keep looking dumber.

Don't know about where you guys ride, but since a motorcyclist can easily smell whatever is coming out of the car in front of him, legalizing weed is a mere technicality. I'm usually pretty hungry when I get home at night...

The term "hopped up on dope" can mean a lot of things...

My guess is, not a whole lot will change.  The first order of a new Administration:  a second term.  So aside from overhauling the ACA (Obamacare), and enforcing existing immigration laws more stringently, his first campaign promises, we wont notice a lot.  With Congress squarely on his court, both the above shouldn't be too hard in the first year. 

I for one am glad that the other side bowed out gracefully, and Obama was equally gracious at accepting the outcome.  He's not a bad President nor a bad person at all.  However, it's clear to see that the US as a whole wants to change direction.  Very similar to Brexit. 

Now let the lawsuits begin!  LOL!  Nothing new here.  Moving on.

As a middleclass white male living in Orange County, CA... I don't expect much to change for me other than increased healthcare costs/reduced options (they'll blame the ACA no matter what the cause, though). I do worry about states rights (something that should be a Republican staple), as I feel he's going to unleash the DEA on medical/legal marijuana states. I also worry for black, latino, muslim and LGBT members of our country, for various reasons.

It would be nice to be proven wrong on those, but based on the 'contract' he put out, we're in for some major unintended consequences.

I'm still going into things with an open mind, and I'm certainly not running around the streets trying to hold up traffic because I'm angry.

I'm pretty much with you, thtanner. While there ARE better ways of handling health care, an open market quickly becomes "all that the market will bear" - especially in the case of peoples health. I have trouble seeing a Republican house and senate doing anything else, though. I am very worried about a decline in equality - for all minorities as well as women - with this administration based on both President Elect Trump and his running mate's backgrounds/histories.

Time will tell.

I wonder when Trump meets with the Queen of England if he'll greet her by grabbing her in her "Crown Jewels"?!

Well folks, you've had 8 years your way.  Now let's give the other side a chance.  If that don't work out, then make the change again in 4 years by voting.  Thank God for our Democracy.

(And no thanks to the violent, disruptive spoiled brats throwing temper tantrums in the streets).

As long as he doesn't actually go through with some of his crazy campaign ideas, we'll be just fine.  My guess is that he won't and will turn out to be a lot more moderate than everyone expects. 

At least the state should get some extra tax $$ from pot :)

Pot won't be on sale for rec use until 2018 because of red tape and this is California that tax money will be seen as extra funds and wasted on some liberal BS.
