3. News freak that I am

I too turned off the TV that night, didn't go back for days. I don't know about your country but I know we outnumber them, in my country, evidently we're just not consistent voters, when Bill Clinton in '92 won we also won the House and Senate, put Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court and got Mandela out of prison, then lost the House in the midterms and didn't get it back until 2006, Obama won by 12 million and we won the House and Senate, got Obamacare save the Auto industry... and lost the midterms and didn't get the House and Senate back for the rest of his six years. You got Brexit and May in 2016, Brexit was a shock to the rest of the world, as well as the win by Johnson. But like you, to me it's their voters leanings that are the scariest. Sorry, I could blather on and on about politics and the little facts that stick in my head. But I'll stop now
