A neutral perspective being an Indian, state machinery is huge with lots of advisers and decision makers doubt much will change. On important policy matters like visas, foreign aids etc. he has been voted signals a massive amount of anger in common common about jobs and he should do something about this situation but keeping in mind the interest of companies as well.

Contrary to the popular opinion I feel he is a rather astute person given he managed to defeat Hillary with a meagre budget. So, don't think it'll work out badly for US.

I believe Trump is a far better option than a member of the 'Clinton Clan'. Has to better than any of the Bush Clan too.

He is an anglophile which is good too!

Clinton didn't get in though!

China is where the action is likely to be. See my John Pilger post, it's a real eye opener and very worrying.

I was referring to her husband President Clinton was in context with the other Presidents who were not very good at working with or dealing with Russia

Yes obviously. Why did you think I didn't understand?

I just got odds of 500/1 that Trump makes his first state visit to Russia. Stuck 10 on.

I suppose, in a democracy, right is what a majority of the people deem to be right. Majority of people in UK voted for Brexit - Brexit is right. Majority of Italians voted against a constitutional amendment - they are right. Majority of Americans voted for trump - trump is right.

I am very interested in how the markets will react today. I'm hoping favorably.

The markets have already factored it in, out, up down and every which way.

Now what he says tomorrow or the next day may cause some shifts one way or another.

The United States is not (and has never been) a democracy. It is a constitutional republic. What's right is defined by the US Constitution, not by 51% of the people on any given day.

If 51% of the people decided to kill the other 49%, how right would that be?

Yup

If it was NOT a constitutional republic Trump would not be president with less actual votes than his opponent.

As far as pure democracy goes, ask Socrates how that worked out.

Can't Congress vote to amend the Constitution & isn't Congress elected by a Majority of the people? If 2/3rds Majority of Congress decides that killing the other 1/3rd is legal then it will in fact be the law of the land.

It also has to be ratified by 2/3 of the states.

And if such was passed by the congress critters and president the civil war would begin before ratification was completed. Assassinations would begin sooner.

Fair point. 2/3rds ratification by states is again part of the Democratic process. Ultimately, the will of the majority controls Congress (& state legislatures) & these people in turn control the Constitution. So the Majority of the people in fact control the Constitution & have allowed it to be in such a state as to let Trump win despite getting fewer votes than Hillary. All a part of the Democratic process.

I am afraid like others you misunderstand the American system. We are not a true Democracy rather a Republic. This used to be taught in grade school but sadly isn't any more.

In a Democracy the entire country would be in fact 1 person 1 vote. This would allow anyone who received the "popular" vote to win the election. This does have the draw back of allowing states with a larger population to have the majority over the other states. Another concern was/is that a popular vote system would allow manipulation through public opininon (i.e. Russia this election for example) Hence the Electoral system. This was created to prevent these types of difficulties.

You vote in your own State. Your vote holds a higher importance to your State's internal matters. Only 1 of these internal matters is what person the Electorates should vote for. When it comes to voting for your State's representatives, Governor etc the popular vote does hold not for the Presidential vote.

If you need more information on how this works and why it was created this way check out... http://www.historycentral.com/electi...collgewhy.html

I trade Forex, have done of years, most of it has been priced in by the big boys. Casual traders though are still reacting, knee jerk style, to every hint he gives. His tweets are what will potentially cause the biggest issues, as he tends to make them when it's the asian session so the liquidity is low.

I trade currencies so don't really follow stock as such. Very little has happened today.
