- Keep up your preparedness routine. Since you are responsible for you and your family, being prepared with food, water, alternative power/heating/cooking, and all of the other things you need to take care of yourself for a period of time is of the utmost importance no matter who is president.
- Get out of debt, stay out of debt, and increase your savings, investments, and money making skills.
- Make your voice heard and hold your politicians accountable--they work for you.
- Make the family you want to live in, make the community you want to live in. Often when there are social problems in a group, people start pointing fingers and fixing blame (which doesn't change the situation). Be the leader in your home and community, set an example, and keep high standards; you may not be able to change the world but you can change your little corner of it.
- Hold tight to your rights. They are being eroded on nearly a daily basis because most people a) don't know what their rights are so they b) can't defend these rights.
- Chill out and relax. Overdosing on political news, like stressing over any topic, can give you high blood pressure and anxiety issues. Sometimes you need to just turn off the news and focus on some of the simple things in life--family, quality ice cream, helping others, etc.
