Election 2016 is Over
Well. Since we last talked, or rather, since I last posted, whether you like it or not, Donald Trump was elected our next president. It is history making. He will be the first president to never have held any public office or been in a military position. Even the Bush's had been governors, and so had Ronald Reagan. Additionally, he will surpass Ronald Reagan as the oldest president to take office, by almost a year.
However, Election 2016 was historic for many more reasons, including a petition for statehood, the approval of ranked-choice voting, and marijuana, both recreational and medical. It was also the 5th time in history when the Electoral College differed from the popular vote, if you include the 1824 election, when no candidate received a majority of the vote. Within the next couple of weeks, I will be posting an article on my "Essays & Writing" page, detailing a few of these topics in detail, and how they really are a historic change.
I will keep you updated, and put up a very short post when the article is up.
