I'm concerned about the economy.

Stock prices dropped last night, then went up today.

The dollar went down yesterday but not sure about today.

I could honestly care less about Pence being President or even the Republican majority, but I want to see Trump go down in flames because he deserves it.
you would rather see one man fail than an entire country succeed. You are part of the problem.

What? How is what I said anything related to that. I want the country to succeed and what I'm saying is that we don't need a childish idiot like Trump in order to do that. He's likely not to do a whole lot anyhow except open his stupid arrogant mouth.

The rest of the world was not frightened by a Republican Presidency, they were frightened by a Trump Presidency.

Eh there are pros and cons to the dollar dropping. A drop in home currency compared to those abroad means a boost for exporting companies as it becomes cheaper to by from the country with low currency so they buy more. Increases profits for large exporting business and grows the economy through tax.

There are many negatives too and other positives but meh.

And the stock markets dropping mightn't be as bad as you think either. The FTSE dropped post credit but climbed up again in a couple months to nearly a 52 week high.

Well, he's the next president so wishing him to go down in flames is wishing the country to go down in flames. and in both the senate and house elections Republicans won so he will be more efficient that way.

False. The country and Federal Government would run just fine without him. Pence would be President and we'd have a leader who isn't ideal, but at least isn't an idiot.

News flash: Pence didn't run for president. Trump did. and he won, too. Pence was running for a second term as governor of Indiana when Trump chose him as his VP

I like it when liberal blowhards choke on their own smugness.

If only instead of hurling empty insults that stepped back and thought about what is actually going own, they would look slightly less stupid.

The name calling and ideological divisiveness is present on both sides and is a huge problem. In fact your showing the exact thing you are complaining about. Used to be that you didnt have to agree with other people but still showed an ounce of respect for people with different ideas.

Fight hard and when the battle is done shake hands. Also get ready to work together against common enemies.

I'll listen to a conservative and show respect and look for understanding, try it too.

I'll blame the media for this. They have turned ideas and political leanings into sports teams. You root for your team, right or wrong, win or lose.

The man has a point. Liberals tend to aim for feel good, ineffective legislation with no logic expended in the thought process. "Assault weapons" bans are a perfect example.
