Let's put it this way, Munch. It's getting so bad here with far right conservatives taking control, that I'm agreeing with Shiranu more.

thats kinda scary tbh.
But serious now, obviously you've reason to be concerned, but given the climate america has to it, this was a certainy that it was gonna happen eventually, two party systems will swing back and forth. My mums got a friend from California, older gay guy she made friends with online, and he's deeply concerned about the way things are going, I haven't really had a chance to discuss his political side of things or feelings about both sides of this, but I'm certain he feels the same way, and my heart goes out to him,
I'm old enough to have lived though labour and conservative government back and forth, and I've seen the best and worst of it. On the ground level, labour was always appearing to be more for the everyday man, while the conservatives were in for the elite, business practices, so from the little guys pov, labour had it better. But after Tony Blair, the status of the labour party got heavily damaged by him so much, that the conservatives have been leading in the polls here since his day.
Now where it stands today, rights and regulations passed here in the uk that I'd say have been the most progressive its been in years, and this was under a conservative rule, which well having the kind of stuff you expect from a conservative government, we still came ahead under what you can consider to be the party that you'd expect to draw things back.http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2015/10/six-ways-in-which-the-conservatives-became-britains-true-progressives/
Not to say I'd ever be a voting conservative, it just surprised me how inspite of how things were in the past with this current political party, it showed a level of stability most people didn't expect (many saying cameron, despite his dodgy misgivings, was more left leaning anyway).
Now, to say I don't have a clue (like some here *ahem*) about how the political system works in other countries, I feel i know more then expected, given one of my friends is half american, with american family, yet lives in denmark, yet still voted for hillary (duel citizenship). We often have discussions about the events happening in america right now, the unrest, what can be expected from it based on history, and the old notion of those not learning from history are doomed to repeat it.
I don't really need a deep understanding of the workings of a political system of regulations, I simply have to observe events as they happen, and since I am living outside of america I can look at these events in more of an unbias pov, same as you guys can look at the brexit from the same angle, since it wouldn't effect you.
On trump, I think he's repugnant, and the men he has around him equally the same. He's a swindler, a liar, an easily trigger verging on sociopath, and he will do some damage to america on the ground level. But that might just work out for the better, because with the way the political system works where you are, you sometimes need to crawl though a river of shit to get free.
That said, because of the kind of creature trump is, this also brought to the front the worst side of left too, I won't go back into it, but lets just say a lot of events lately only helped trumps standing where he is, unfortunate, but true.
Now to Shiranu, yes, I knew the supreme court doesn't make laws, just interpreting them. That said establishing a set of rules and regulations based on executive orders is the mandate of any president, within the legal system, and from what i've seen so far it can be overturned by judges across the land, meaning there is more of a defense system in place to block and uphold standards within the american system.
Trump is more then likely now learning he isn't all powerful, so that should give people some reassurance that he can only go so far with what orders he makes. Also do you honestly believe he will win a second term in office, allowing him to elect another judge?
