November 8, 2016 will definitely go down in history as one of the most controversial days in American history. Probably more than the 2000 election day and the days to follow. And the strange thing is, when Bush finally was named the winner, I don't remember the onslaught of death threats towards Bush like Trump is getting 18 hours after the election results. Of course, Titter (2006), Facebook (2004), and even MySpace (2003) were not in the public's hands yet. No, we had Email and AOL Instant Messenger. That was about it as far as instant messaging was concerned.
