sh00t3r: Two words: We won.

Popular vote means nothing. Remove LA county for example and Trump wins. Trump didn't campaign in these densely populated cities because it didn't help him win the Presidency. If he did, the results would have been different. He campaigned with a strategy to win the ELECTORAL college which is what counts. He won over 2620 counties vs 489. There is a reason why we have a constitutional republic.

David Franklin: It's hard to know where to start in reacting to this "photo essay." I've been a fairly active member of this forum for 15 years. At first, the content here was almost exclusively about gear and the technical aspects of digital imaging, with an occasional foray into examining some great photo work.

With the changes occurring in media in the last 10 years or so, I imagine that it was inevitable that politics would eventually begin to seep into this aspect of the culture, as it has in almost every other one. After all, almost the entire media, as with the Democrat party, academia, most of the very largest corporations, their tech billionaire fellows, and popular entertainment, are fully bathed in left wing ideology, some really believing it, others merely mouthing the platitudes they think will absolve them from guilt and judgment by others for having lived so well. (continued next post)

Steelhead, Trump won due to various reasons. Part was the repudiation of 8 years of Obama's failed "Hope & Change", the continual decline of the middle class, the rampant corruption in our government / politicians and last but not least because Hillary was/is the epitome of THE problem. That is the corruption and dishonesty in many of these self-serving establishment politicians who think they are above the law.

ovlov: I hope some pictures are added from Comey's upcoming testimony​ on Trump's attempts at obstruction of justice.

I hope some pictures of Hillary Clinton and or her staff breaking her mobile devices with hammers are also added :-)

steelhead, But we have a Constitutional Republic and representation through the electoral college when voting for the presidency so that ALL citizens of ALL places could be represented as fairly/equally as possible.

katastrofa: The most shocking thing for me in this photo story was actually learning how many Americans had the right to vote taken away from them. USA seems to be using the criminal law to disenfranchise millions of people.

What Americans got their rights to vote taken away and by who?

Pretty spot on David. I believe the left still does NOT get it or really understand why someone like Donald Trump is now our President. They don't seem to understand that their ideology (among other things) simply does not mesh very well with the views of most of the country. They don't seem to know just how fed-up people are of the same-old corrupt two party system. It's kind of hard to realize a lot of these things when you are stuck living in a bubble among elitists in LA, SF, Seattle, NYC, and Chicago, etc.

Neurad1: Excellent photography, yes, but subjects chosen, posed, and lit to tell the author's story. I am not a Trump supporter, but IMO the images don't truly expose the full spectrum of his supporters. His less "caricature-able" supporters are the ones that frighten me most.

I can tell you from years of experience, if you want to see the odd or weird or creepy confused looking people, they are (by a long shot) mostly on the left. Talk about a freaky "spectrum" there :-)

jbieber: Anyone tired of the mass media and hollywood insanity propaganda yet? They said they wont stop until Hillary is in office. Is that completely insane or braindamaged demented?

Did anyone go to dpreview to get away from the insane media attacks only to see that Dpreview has decided to join in on the agenda.

Soon we will see Russia blamed on our blurry pictures.

Is this what has become of you Dpreview? Sold out to Soros?

I can tell you a LOT of people are sick and tired of the constant 24/7 lies and hatred coming from the leftist media (which includes almost all the networks). They have become completely hysterical to the point where they look like total idiots. They have "0" credibility with "real" America, which btw, it's not in LA, NYC and Chicago.

These people just can not get over their loss. It has been a real freak show since November :-)

The Jimmy 86: Really and truly, it's more than a bit disheartening to read the comments here.

It's not that people disagree with Trump, because that's natural, and to be expected. It is not that people are upset their party lost.

It's the insanely caustic vitriol vomited upon Trump and his supporters.

Every time politics are raised in a photography or art related forum, I have to wade through piles of cruel, sneering invectives courtesy of the 'tolerant left.' If it's not that, its the inevitable invocation of Godwins law.

I don't believe Nikon sponsored this by the way, so all of you drama queens can spare us your histrionic declarations of separation from Nikon equipment.

The vitriol has always been from the left. Many of these loons are being paid to protest burning things, breaking things, rioting and causing unrest. This is who the left is period. Did you see the destruction of property from the protesters during the Trump inauguration? Do you really think this helps your cause?

As for the wall, just so you know this was approved years ago. No executive action necessary. BTW, we are a country with borders and laws.

I don't know Mike, I pretty much see the opposite. Sure, there are some Trump supporters or conservatives that display anger in the Internet. That's always been and will continue to be the case (on both sides), but the undeniable fact is that the left is going completely insane here.

From the vulgar protests all over to the media putting out anti-Trump stories after stories (many of it unverified or made up), to the 60 something in congress sitting out for the inauguration, to some calling for impeachment before the man is even sworn in. None of this happened when Obama was elected.

I agree, we need more respect towards each other, especially at the higher levels of government. It's pretty obvious that the so called "tolerant" left is quiet the opposite of "tolerant"!

Mr. Trump was not elected because he is classy and a politically correct politician who says one thing but does another. He was elected because hard working Americans (those with common sense) are sick and tired of the same garbage for the past two decades.

Many people are just tired of the status quo, the rampant corruption in a big inefficient government, the self-serving politicians who think they are above law, the inability in career politicians to solve real problems and actually serve the people, and the list goes on...

zoranT: Why do the Americans get it cheaper? Not fair!

More social programs (socialism) in Europe is one reason. Most democrats want to do the same here in the U.S. unfortunately.

jackpro: Wow time to sell up & jump on this drone gig 4k & obstacle avoidance at that price unbelievable😂

Some people just have that gullible sheep mentality that looks up to a nanny state government so that they can be controlled and always told what to do. Others prefer to live somewhere with a little more freedom and not be excessively controlled by the supreme leaders.

Biowizard: Funny how America gets all prissy about people playing with plastic flying toys, in case they could hurt someone - but lets its folks run amok with assault rifles and handguns.

Thousands of people are killed every week in the USA by tobacco (principally a US product); around 170 are murdered every week in the USA by firearms. Exactly HOW many people have been killed buy quadcopters?

Brian

Your anti-gun comments are ridiculous and baseless. Those who are being murdered weekly by firearms will continue to be murdered regardless of what anti-gun measures we have in place. I can assure you those committing these crimes are not legally able to posses a firearm, and, for the most part, these crimes happen in those anti-gun "gun free" cities/states.

pev70: The liberal progressive agenda can not advance without its plethora of lies and deceptions. Indoctrination and brainwashing the vulnerable by using deceiving tactics is at its roots.

Altering images to advance the agenda is just one example of many.
