What if Clinton wins? Then what?

What if Hillary Clinton is elected the next POTUS? Then what?

Anyone who has read my previous posts should already know that a Clinton victory is something that I do NOT want.

Only an idiot would conclude that I would vote for Clinton or want her to win.

So, how should an anti-Clinton voter like me respond if Clinton wins?

Besides having a stiff drink afterwards.

The answer is . . .

No, I won’t be acting like a paranoid android.

Also, I won’t panic because I have a towel.

Besides, Hillary Clinton is no Vogon. At least I don’t think she is. I never heard any of her poetry.

Anyway, I am prepared for a Hillary presidency because I have my survival guide.

Granted, not every anti-Hillary voter will agree with my response to a Hillary presidency, but at least I won’t be needing a whaaambulance.

Trump Victory Still Possible
Clinton and Trump running neck and neck in home stretch
  • Retired military

    David will be happy. You can say that you don’t want Hillary to win but your antiTrump screeds make those statements false.
    We get to blame every lousy thing that she does for the next 4 years on David and people like him.
    The country will likely end as anything but a secondary world power.
    SCOTUS will be liberalized for 40 years.
    The Clintons will be broke with mortgages and stuff after they leave the WH with even more furniture and a billion dollars in the bank.
    I heard a rumor that 85% of the SS protective detail personnel and the WH staff (ie cooks, butlers, etc) will resign from their positions before inauguration day.
    Chelsea will run in 20 years and hailed as the smartest woman in the world (if there is still such a thing as elections anymore).

    Anyone looking at the mealy mouthed criticisms you put forward on Clinton and the constant torrent of bile you unleash on Trump would conclude that you support Clinton, but understanding that your audience loathes her so you feign to not support her by occasionally posting a mildly negative article about her flaws.

    Your previous “criticisms” of Hillary have been along the lines of obamacare hasn’t worked out. You have made zero substantive criticisms of her.

    Even your “what if Trump wins” article was a criticism of Trump saying that if he won it was because Clinton was a bad candidate and not because he deserved to win. In the article above you make no criticisms of Hillary at all. You say that maybe you will get a stiff drink. You don’t argue, as you did with Trump, that total anarchy will take place because half the electorate will refuse to acknowledge his victory.

    You claim to not support Clinton but it becomes more and more obvious with every post ou make that you do.

    T.S. Eliot once said, “Half the harm that is done in this
    world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm –
    but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it
    because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of
    themselves.”

    CS Lewis “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience”

    David your claims of not supporting Hillary are akin to Hillary talking about her emails. The more she denies the more she lies, the more she lies the more she lies about lying. She in the hole so deep she cant stop digging because to do so would make her look at the pile of dirt she has already dug (lies she has already told) and then deny that it is a mountain.

  • Pat

    I have to agree with the other comments. The HRC presidency will be set at the feet of the “Never Trumperers” and the elite GOP who have worked every advantage to make sure she wins. I fear for our country, for the Supreme Court, for all the courts at every level that haven’t already been polluted by liberal judges, for our educational institutions and what’s left of our government. The republicans will never hold the presidential office again after that. Your “light hearted” post seems inappropriate to the seriousness of the subject.

    Trump is a risk, I agree. He’s unpredictable. But with the right advisers he may surprise us all. But with her, we know the levels she will sink to. And every level is calculated to enrich the Clintons. They have NO LOVE FOR ANY COUNTRY, PEOPLE OR INSTITUTION other then the Clinton crime family. Period.

He’s just trolling, and we keep falling for it.

    Ideally, the Republicans would settle into their role as the loyal opposition, using their influence in Congress and in state government to leaven President Clinton’s policies, and negotiate with the Clinton White House in good faith to craft bipartisan laws and budgets in which both Clinton and Republicans compromise a little bit for the greater good of the country.

    Not gonna happen.

    A few Republican firebrands have already promised a fair impeachment, although I’m not sure they’ll remember the fair investigation first. Meanwhile, there are rumblings in the Senate that they’re just not going to allow a President Hillary Clinton to appoint any justices whatsoever to the Supreme Court.

    I’m all for Republicans acting as a check on a Democratic president. I’m all for Republicans advocating strongly for their positions. But I don’t appreciate them constantly grinding government to a halt when they lose an election.

    • jim_m

      The best thing that could happen with our current government is that it grinds to a halt.

      The republicans will fold. Just like they have folded for Obama for the past 8 years. They wont want to be called sexist in the papers and not get invites to their DC cocktail parties.

      • Jwb10001

        If Donald Trump has proven nothing else I think he’s shown that a majority of people are fed up with the current PC culture. It’s not enough yet to turn that around but it’s a start. It’s past time that we pushed back hard against the PC rule makers. I think NC governor race will be fairly telling in this regard as well. A lot of the ads I’m hearing here are directly attacking the transgender bathroom stuff. On the other side the democrat is refusing to run ads on social issues. I suspect the polling here shows that to be a loser.

    • Jwb10001

      What should the republicans do about a president that is under 1 or more FBI investigations for security breaches and corruption? What should they do with a president that has been to be absolutely reckless with government classified information? How should they deal with a president that has been clearly shown to be a liar? Should they rubber stamp DOJ appointees or should they hold them to the absolute highest standards, hell if it were me I’d insist on a republican AG. Should they just give up or should they demand a special prosecutor? Was Nixon correctly forced out of office? If so why makes this situation any better/different? What would democrats do in similar circumstances? What will democrats do if it’s Trump not Clinton, will they become the loyal opposition or will they work overtime to force him from office? I’ve heard that Kaine has said the senate will nuke the filibuster to force Clinton appointees through, should republicans take that sitting down? The federal government is broken they can’t pass anything that doesn’t have more unintended bad consequences than positive outcomes. We can’t seem to find honest people to run important departments and we have a politicized judiciary. The only thing that keeps them at bay is grinding them to a halt.

      • pennywit

        Alright, JWB, just one question. Let’s say that Trump wins the presidency, but Democrats retain enough seats in the Senate to make trouble. Trump himself is no rose. Would you prefer that Democrats attempt to work with him and try to mitigate some of his policies by working with him and forcing compromises? Or would you prefer that Democrats completely shut down government until the president is willing to embrace liberal ideals?

        • Jwb10001

          You mean like busting the filibuster to get his nominees through? That’s always the way the democrats like to compromise, you don’t like our guys tough we’ll change the rules. No I would want them to allow the republicans to change the rules for Trump. If Trump were under investigation I would not expect the democrats to support him until or unless he’s cleared of wrong doing especially if he’s being investigated for corruption and careless handling of our secrets. If Trump was shown to have a complete disregard for our country’s secrets I would expect them to ask for his clearance to revoked. I don’t really care which party holds which branch if we could get even reasonably honest people to serve. So to answer your question directly I would expect them to do what they always to which is exactly the same things the republicans do. Do you actually view the democrats as the loyal opposition, given how they treated GWB? Remember the first thing he did was invited Ted Kennedy to white house to watch JFK. Bush then worked with Kennedy on no child left behind, how did that workout for Bush (not well). How did the democrats react after they voted to invade Iraq, like the loyal opposition? Please tell me how supportive they were during Katrina? Were they willing to work with Bush on social security, immigration? How did they do with the first hispanic nominated to the supreme court? So please the parties are both the same and nothing is going to change until we force them to change.

          Edit: Electing Hillary Clinton is hardly forcing a change, at least not a positive one.

        • Jwb10001

          Oh additionally wasn’t it the current democrat president that said republicans can come along if they go to the back of the bus. He’s the same guy when presented with healthcare ideas shot back “I won.” Isn’t it the democrats that forced through a 2000 page healthcare bill on a sketchy budget trick with zero republican votes, pushing it so hard that there was no time to even read the bill let alone compromise on it? Didn’t they also push through a bail out bill with zero republican votes? I sure hope you’re not suggesting that the democrats are especially good at compromise.

  • Paul Hooson

    If Clinton is elected, my hope is a return to the best of the 1990’s Bill Clinton achievements: The strongest economy since the early 1960’s Kennedy-Johnson years. Movement towards a balanced budget. Peace in the Mideast advancing.

    • jim_m

      You really are delusional.

      Bill Clinton benefited from a tech bubble economy. Is that what you are hoping for? He also benefited from an economy with otherwise sound fundamentals, low U6 unemployment, high labor participation rates, low inflation.

      Hillary will inherit none of that. She will inherit growing inflation, a double digit U6 unemployment, historically low labor participation.

      Bill had ME peace already established. Hillary inherits an ME that she helped destroy by supplying arms to ISIS through Benghazi. Are you so fucking ignorant that you have missed that fact over the last 4 years?

      If your idiotic delusion are what you base your vote on, it is a wonder that you are still out of an asylum. You clearly lack the mental competence to take care of your own affairs.

    • jim_m

      You forget Bill’s Presidency where Hillary was responsible for:

      The WH travel office scandal
      The illegal seizing of FBI files on Hillary’s enemies
      Hillary Care
      The Rose Law Firm records scandal
      The attempted theft of $190,000 of furniture form the WH.

      In fact most of the scandals outside of Bill’s penis can be traced to Hillary.

    • Jwb10001

      Hummm what was it that JFK did that sparked a strong economy…. it was something, ah damn ah,, oh I remember he cut taxes. Have you heard Clinton wants to raise taxes. So now we’ve heard you support her cause her immigration policies will keep Israel safe (still can’t manage to get that one) and she’s gonna be just great in fixing up the mideast, nevermind a lot of it is her doing. She’s not going to take us to war even though she’s supported every intervention since her husband’s presidency. And finally you think she’ll just be great on the economy even though she wants to tax and regulate the hell out of us. That’s some good work you’re doing there Paul.

    Here’s one of Hilary Clinton’s Emails from her private server when she was Secretary Of State presented here where she was only trying to help a disadvantaged 10 year old child from Yemen. In fact reading through Emails present a similar nature here, of only attempting to do her best possible job as Secretary Of State, where she was never too busy or important not to help someone in need. Sadly, this election has often only painted the candidates in unfair terms. https://twitter.com/DanaSchwartzzz/status/793138754299002880/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

      If Hillary couldn’t find the Rose law firm billing records after 2 years of looking while they were sitting out in the open in a room in the WH what makes you think she could have helped a 10 year old who was at the Glamour awards.
      I am sure that if she had “helped” her than it would have been for Hillary to either have sex with the girl or to use her as a prop in a campaign speech.

    • jim_m

      Yes, and I am sure that there really were emails about Chelsea’s wedding in there too. But the fact that there were innocuous emails in the thousands of emails that went across that server is irrelevant.

      The relevant point is that classified information DID get communicated on that server and it was exposed to multiple of our enemies.

      People without Hillary’s political power have gone to prison for less. PRISON Paul, for just one instance of innocently communicating secret material where they were not aware that it was classified. Hillary knew it was classified. She knew she had done it and she tried to destroy the evidence.

      You ignore these facts because either you are dishonest or you are simply to stupid to figure out what is relevant. I am inclined to believe the latter. I honestly do not believe that you are capable of making an informed decision because you are too stupid to be able to discern what is relevant and what is not. I think that you are so stupid that you are likely a hazard to yourself and that you should have someone appointed to manage your affairs because you cannot do so yourself.

    I’d say the blame would lie more with the people who foolishly voted for Trump in the primaries. Hillary is beatable, unless you put the worst possible candidate to run against her. Trump has come across as ignorant, petty, peevish, undisciplined, unfocused, and unfamiliar with the Constitution, the economy or the issues of the day.

    I will blame those people, and use obscenities to describe them and their ancestry.

      • Jwb10001

        But you fail to address the valid points that were made. Trump has come across as peevish and undisciplined, he has a tendency to over react to criticism and tweet before thinking. It doesn’t make sense to ignore that, it may be what supporters like about him, that doesn’t mean everyone’s going to find it appealing. You ignore too much in slavish devotion to a guy that’s just another overblown ego thinking he should be president. This election most people are looking for reasons to vote against one or the other of these 2. I will grant you there are more people supporting Trump than support Clinton but there are indeed a very significant number of people willing to vote against him. My main complaint about his campaign is, he seems satisfied with his core supporters and hasn’t done enough to expand his support. He’s benefiting from an avalanche of very bad news for Clinton and of course her general rotten-ness. To me it’s very valid to question Trumps tactics and frankly if he fails to win it is all on him, no one owes him anything. I know that a lot of people will blame everyone in sight but it was always up to Trump to appeal to enough people to win.

      • TheyTukRJobz

        No, chica, I just have contempt for idiots, whatever their socio-economic level. I make no excuses for their idiocy.

    • Jwb10001

      If Trump loses the blame is squarely on him, the people that support him, voted for him in greater numbers during a perfect storm primary season, they won fair and square. I can relate to their frustrations and therefore understand why they supported Trump, I don’t agree but I do understand. After the primary it was completely up to Trump to widen his appeal, I’m not convinced he’s done that. I suspect a lot of his current success can be attributed to Clinton,the worst presidential candidate of my life time. I think no matter the outcome next week will be interesting as we see how our betters in the parties and the media decide for use what went wrong or what went right, who voted for who and why ( and of course mostly get it wrong.) After that I suspect whoever wins will have a very difficult time for 4 years (max.) If the republicans hold the house and senate (looking somewhat likely) neither of these 2 will have majority support, think about that for a second. If the republicans hold congress there are not enough of them that support Trump to give him a solid reliable majority (my opinion only, but I doubt it will take long to find out for sure.)

      • TheyTukRJobz

        You might want to put some scare quotes around that “betters” in the parties and media, since I recognize none as such.
