What news to wake up to.

Tbh, I'm not surprised. Yes, of course I hoped for the best which means Clinton as a lesser of two evils. Looks like that's not gonna happen.

My gran always says "history repeats itself" - not in the same settings, but in general. Societies rise, have a peak, and then ... fall. Just look at the Pharaos or the Romans, and if that's not enough ... look at our ugly German history. We were lucky last time, because our country and its people weren't totally destroyed by the victorious countries.
Before WW II Germany was in a similar state like many countries (like the US) are in today. There were "Golden Twenties", but actually only a rich minority enjoyed these days. Most were fighting against recession, for their jobs and to just live a normal life. Then someone came along who made big promises, who wanted to "make things right" and "our country great again". If you listened carefully, he also spoke about his plans in all details and how he would do it all. Well, the world saw. More than 6 millions Jews and 50-80 millions in total died. That's not great, that's horrible and it will never cease to be one of the worst examples of humankind.

Well, all the fear wasn't an excuse back than, neither it's one today. As you I'm afraid too, because Trump seems to be even more crazy than Hitler was and draws even less distinctions between friends and foes. I fear for all my friends over there and for humanity.
