President Trump

Those are two words I didn't expect to hear together. I just didn't think that Trump had the numbers to win the election. But then I didn't support Clinton (or any other candidate in this election or the other elections that I recall). All in all, this was a very interesting election that once again demonstrates the weakness of political democracy. The person who won the election lost all three of his debates, making one wonder about the wisdom of the electorate. And now it's quite amusing to hear various commentators and political leaders lauding a system that might better be called 'foolocracy' – and, in particular, the peaceful transition of power – thereby implicitly admitting that they only give lip service to the ethical principles they avow.
