We just had a referendum on hate and what the USA stands for. Hate won. You don't come back from that with calls for unity, rebuilding the Democratic party, or blaming Comey. You don't come back from knowing an overwhelming number of Americans either hate you or don't care that others do. You don't come back to safety knowing that the three largest police unions endorsed Trump. The curtain of delusions and hope has been pulled back. It's over.

It's more than the Trump supporters. It's the millions who didn't like him, but voted for him anyway, because his rabid, hate fueled campaign wasn't enough of a reason not to. It's all those who didn't vote because voting against a white racist running for President wasn't worth the hassle.

I got your message. If I'm not white and heterosexual, I'm the enemy. I don't need to be belittled with another referendum on my rights in four years.

The reason a secession of blue states will be peaceful is the red states will be as happy to be rid of us as we them. To make up for the revenue from blue states that financially support the red states, we'll give them all rights to the USA brand. It's forever mired with the Trump brand. They can have it.

The United States I deluded myself into thinking exists doesn't.
