Trump is now president. Are we all doomed? If so, why?

After the shell shock of the election has worn off I'm starting to think that this might have been the best thing to happen. Assuming of course that we don't end up in a Thermonuclear Exchange. If Hillary had won we would have had 4-8 more years of the same. Now, Republicans are forced to actually govern, which apparently they have forgotten how to do. They have the opportunity with control of all three branches of government to show everyone just how prosperous we can be under conservative policies. They get to show the electorate what their real priorities are (the rich). It hasn't looked good so far, and I'm really hoping that this mess forces the country back towards the center.

I'm struggling to see how the systems can deal with another 3.5 years of this...

Well.....considering both parties are currently left of center......a return to the center would be refreshing.

I assume you mean fiscally left, as I don't think Republicans have much room to pull right on social issues. It would be nice to see a party that actually cared about the deficit.

Nah, both are pretty much left of center all around now. Democrats are just much further left now than they used to be.

The only camp currently right of center are the libertarians.

I think we need to define what we're talking about here. The "normal" political scale is completely out the window.
