Thank God the election is over. This isn't a political blog, but I don't see why the Brits can do an entire election cycle in about two months and it takes us nearly two years. Since I'm sure Trump will declare martial law if he doesn't think he can get re-elected, this will likely be the last open election for many years, just as the Roman Senate became dysfunctional and gave way to the nutty emperors. From my point of view we are heading down that same path and the republic as we knew it is gone. At least we won't have to watch these hideous campaign commercials any more.
