As I said before, people should have pushed harder to get anyone other than Hillary Clinton as the Dem. Party nominee if that's the case.

Clinton would have continued questionable intervention in the middle East just like Obama

But the Neo-cons are a whole other beast foaming at the mouth for War complete immoral minions of the military industrial complex

Not even Sanders came out against intervention in Syria that's the nature of US politics

It doesn't justify a false equivalence

I'm a hater so it comes naturally but it is especially easy for me to hate Hillary and Sanders. Not even taking into account their politics. Just the smug condescending I'm smart look on their faces. The way Sanders gesticulates makes me want to punch him in the ****ing face. Like put your hands down you old rich white ****. And Hillary with that power hungry smile. Goddamn she's hard not to hate. Whatever y'all think of me I know more about politics than the average voter. And as much as some of you might hate me, if you remove my politics from the equation my gut reaction to people is very redneck. You may think the typical redneck hated Obama but that's not true. Only political rednecks hated Obama. The typical redneck had a favorable outlook on him because the ****ing guy is likable. It's not politics; it's charisma. It's a very small base of voters that even understand politics enough to vote based on a political foundation. Like y'all know I hate Trump. But the truth is I hate him for political reasons, not personal reasons. Pussy grabber, bashing POWs, mimicking the disabled, bashing minorities on stage, ripping off the poor, amping up the arms race, whatever- but my reasons for hating him are political not personal. I love to hate him. Compared to Hillary who I just hate. Sure it's frustrating but that's democracy. President or Prom King and Queen. It boils down to the same petty bull****.

^ What would you say about a third party that opposes unjust invasions, arms races and political corruption, which speaks for the interests of regular working people as well as minorities, which isn't led by a team of smug people in suits, and which doesn't sell out to Wall Street-backed candidates on the eve of the election?

Idc about any of that

Check their political party

Check their donors

That's all you need to know about a candidate

Let's remember that Clinton defeated Trump by 3 million votes, just over 2%. And if not for 10 years of agressive GOP led gerrymandering, most likely would have won the electoral college.

Trump "won" by the worst margin of any other president in history.

He's also has the lowest approval rating of any other president ever over the course of their first 100 days in office.

The dude hasn't been able to accomplish any of his major campaign promises even though he has a GOP led Senate and House, and he refers to the nation's capital as a swamp - even though his campaign slogan was Make America Great Again.

I have some bridges to sell to any of the 90%+ who say they'd still vote for him today. Denial is not just a river in Africa.

That doesn't really work when you're reading it.
