Look, both of you voted for same old same old. You showed your tolerance for turds. How come you didn't vote for something different? And now you two are scared? Garbage in, garbage out. You accepted garbage. Enjoy the taste. If you wanted better, you would have voted better. It is not Hillary or Donald's fault. It is yours.

There is a reason that classic literature on fascism is selling like hotcakes these days. Many people are convinced we're on the road to it. Lets see what happens in the NL election next month. Mark Rutte the PM in NL is channeling Trump campaign techniques now because he knows he might actually lose to Geert Wilders. Road to fascism indeed.

I don`t understand this line of thinking.
We should "fault" ourselves because we got screwed?
I`m now interested in what political choice you made that excluded you from accepting the same "garbage" we have?
Or are you happy with a pathological liar in the WH?

I voted against Donald and Hillary. I voted for a third party. Anybody but same ol. You think that the two major parties don't notice their decreasing relevance with the people? I have been an independent since 92, and only once voted for same ol. Obama in 2008. If all voters are a pie, independants are now a 42% slice. Dems have dropped to 29%. Repubs to 23%. Support those third parties. I wanted Bernie. Then the greens. This election was fucked up for me. We will survive to vote another day!

I guess I am pretty much the same.
It was Bernie all the way for me. Obviously the better candidate for the people.
But here we are.
I just can`t see blaming myself for mess that generations of lawyers and political hacks have made
of our election process.
But I do see the need for all of us to be more vocal about what we really want.
This "surprise" election is plenty proof of that.

What I think is really hilarious is that the various networks "media" has prepared, produced and steered a Presidential candidate into office who`s biggest enemy and gripe is . . . the "media".

On as liberal a forum as this one is, what are the chances of finding anyone in Trump's corner? The insights on racism by shezz, (mokum dream) would've livened this forum quite a bit. However, the only conservative we have left is Norks, who i'd bet voted for the lesser of the two evils in his mind. Still stuck on the republican/ democrat paradigm, when they've both proven that neither is worth a pair of dimes.

Probably going to start shifting as the baby boomers die off and the current 18-25 generation gets more politically active. The younger people seem far less party centric whereas the boomers seem to have had partisan party allegiance almost bred into them. Trump and Sanders probably helped thing along. The GOP didn't want Trump but couldn't stop him and the Democrats did effectively marginalize Sanders to protect their golden idol.

Since there's no :-) this isn't hyperbole, you're actually calling for students to be bombed?
