What is expected by most people who hoped for a Clinton victory, flipped.
When Bernie was asked out, we should know way better that Trump might win. A tip over the scales in many parts of the States flipped the blue out with the red in. It showed the true state of situations in the States and how much was trusted after Sanders was asked to concede during the nomination.The problems are so dire with commoners, mainly the underprivileged, that the ruling party was shown out. And that should not have been overlooked.
The issue is when you take off the kind, you should know that things will no longer be the same.
Lesson learnt: do not take advantage over the well meaning folks who are neither power mongering nor greedy. Cos when you do, the power of the votes will show you in.
People’s problems must be addressed, social issues must be sensitively handled with action. These are the fundamentals of any election victory. It is also a fact that when commoners are not in a good state of affairs will want a change of governance. It has always been the rule.
Welcome to the new world power and probably a radical change. Coming January, Trump is now going to be the most powerful person with the money and political influence combined.These are the main essence to get things done without just the talk on paper, but real action; especially in the hands of someone who doesn’t actually need to bend to any ordinary human being or power.
As we read on after the historic election, we should know better too who are the genuine folks for the people. There is always a reason why things happen. So let this be a good lesson. It might not be as bad as we think. Stocks first fell but later stabilized showed this stability for now. 欺善怕恶的世界可能从此得到启示。Perhaps the world that is usually cowering down before the powerful and mighty will heed the lessons better. Not a bad day if it is so. @Karen_Fu

It is destined that China will rule in many areas, if not most areas.
Realism as S’pore ‘warns’ US
Behind The Headlines By Bunn Nagara
The city state has begun to adjust to emerging regional realities while pivoting on its pragmatic impulses, as always, while steering a steady course between China and the US.SINGAPORE’S political positions are nothing if not coolly calculated and calibrated. They are specially so when expressed in formal statements at high-level meetings.
In Foreign Minister K. Shanmugam’s keynote address to the CSIS (Center for Strategic and International Studies) gathering in Washington recently, US media reported him as “warning” the US against China-bashing rhetoric.
Words about containing China, particularly in the populist mood of a US election year, would he said cause a “new and intended reality for the region.” It was not the first time Shanmugam had said so, having previously cautioned against the futility of containing a rising China.
However, these statements do mark a shift from previous…
