The Aftermath Should be Concerning


Prognostication: Clinton will win and home grown terrorists will act. Not because of any great perfection or honesty on her part, but because of how terrible a person is Donald Trump.  John Kasich or Mitt Romney would have each beaten her handily. 

The aspect that really concerns me is the strong potential of armed lower middle and working class white men, who have formed the core of Trump’s support to initiate home grown attacks in retaliation for what they’ll believe is a stolen election. An election where their concerns around the lack of jobs and border security, most of which are valid, are once again being ignored by the media and the rest of the country.   
These people have strong and very valid concerns about the negative impact of terrible trade deals that kill jobs for non-college educated people in the U.S. and about the potential for Islamic radicals to commit acts of terrorism in the western world. They also have valid concerns about the dishonesty and power grabbing nature of Ms. Clinton.

Unfortunately, there is a chance that those feelings of discontent and abandonment will result in those same, highly armed people lashing out a la Timothy McVeigh in Oklahoma City.
