A bit late but...the election happened

And I am SO not going to talk about it.  I love political arguments, but I have no desire to get in one right now.  So I'm not going to give my opinion.

By the way, in case you're wondering, the best wayto win any political argument is to call your opponent a communist.  Nothing can ever go wrong if you do this.  I swear.

My friend and I do that.  We start debating something, and it desintegrates into calling each other members of various political parties throughout history, which aren't really insults but are fun to say insultingly.
"You're a communist!"
"You're a socialist!"
"Marxist!"
"Federalist!"
"Anti-Federalist!"
"Whig!"
"Know-Nothing partier!"
"Populist!"
"Progressive!"
"Prohibitionist!"
"Secessioner!"
"War Hawk!"
"Hamiltonian!"
"Jeffersonian!"
"Free-Soiler!"

...and so on.  After taking AP US, I know a lot of historical political parties.

Moral of this story?  No matter who you rooted for in this election, be glad that we didn't elect a Know-Nothing partier.  They were basically the "Americans are superior; keeep out the immigrants" party and were anti-[insert any minority race or religion here].  They died out in the late 1850s.
