There’s a lot to talk about and do following this election, so I thought I’d talk about some of the stuff I haven’t seen other people talk about. Don’t forget to speak out, call your representatives, and keep an eye on 2018.

I’d love to see someone with access to finer grained data follow up on some of this!

Comments closed because there were too many of the same partisan reactions you see everywhere else, and that doesn’t help anyone consider new perspectives. But I encourage discussion of this video in a longer less-shallow form than the YouTube comment system can provide, especially doing it in real life with people you know.
