All this drivel and I support the electoral college process

What does it matter if they don't vote? Popular vote doesn't matter. Popular vote doesn't elect our Commander in Chief


The two posts seem to be contradictory.......as previously pointed out...
if the POPULAR VOTE in a STATE is for a candidate then THAT STATE votes to ELECT THE PRESIDENT.

No it doesn't. The popular vote selects electors to the electoral college. They can and frequently do as they damn well please.

And if they choose to do that, what then? What will that do to democracy and what sort of precident will that set?

If you had only listened, Gary Johnson for President.

I agree with everything in your post except for the last line. Fortunately you are from a state where voting for Gary Johnson wasn't effectively a vote for Trump.


BTW, it's when you say things like that, you trigger CLYDE :)

And you guys go round and round... and in the end CLYDE would be right.

I know, I know... you think I've gone crazy (or am crazy in general).

But I've been shaking my head for months. You guys are SO allergic to his writing style that you fail to see CLYDE's almost never wrong.

Let me explain:
a) When CLYDE goes on a back and forth with one of you guys and does NOT back down, chances are he is right and you are wrong. He has thought it through a lot better than you have. Sorry.
b) When CLYDE goes on a back and forth with one of you guys and you present him with a piece of info he was missing he IMMEDIATELY says, "I stand corrected". Do I really have to remind you guys that not a lot of people can do that? And that it's a good thing?

Back to the quoted text.

...you are from a state where voting for Gary Johnson wasn't effectively a vote for Trump.


You are being a TINA. And I'm pretty sure you neither are or want to be a TINA.

As for me? There is ZERO chance I would have voted for Trump or Hillary. Had you dropped me in State, told me the State has voted, told me that T&H are tied and... it would STILL be a choice between Johnson & Stein. And (personally) I'd probably go for Stein.

What blows my mind is that I have to explain this to an insanely sharp progressive.

OR perhaps I just see what a terrible danger Trump is? In this case I am a TINA.

If only 1/3 of the Rats and 1/3 of the Pugnants had voted for Gary Johnson, he would have a huge mandate. It is thinking like you expressed that causes the Trumps to be elected and the bondage and slavery to continue.

Except I don't think Gary Johnson would have been a good alternative.

I know..but others don't seem to have taken it in.

The ruling elite have taken a blow that hopefully they shall never recover from.

So sorry to inform you that the ruling elite's candidate won. Trump is a actor, showman, carnie and con man all in one, a good one, and a silver spooner, never worked a day in his life for the man, because he is the man. When you see how he dumps you without health care, raises tax on the middle class so he can lower it on corporations and billionaires (himself), kills your cheap imported goods so you have to pay double the sales tax to get what you want, you will rue the day you swallowed his bait hook line and sinker. You just voted for the largest tax increase in history and you don't even know it! You just voted to cut your disposable income by half and you don't even know it! Just wait 'till he gets rid of the EPA because those regulations are bad for profits and you have to live in the toxic choking air and drink the filthy polluted water. Remember many times when the Cayahoga River caught fire? That is the kind of profits Trump stands for and you will have to live it.

If you had only listened, Gary Johnson for President.

I agree with everything in your post except for the last line. Fortunately you are from a state where voting for Gary Johnson wasn't effectively a vote for Trump.

Countless Acts Of Hate Have Been Carried Out Since Trump’s Win

So you're saying it's Trump's fault?

I'm saying him running on an openly racist ticket has created an atmosphere where this sort of thing has been given tacit permission.

However, I strongly feel that all people should stand up for what they truly believe and work to better all humankind.

You mean "gay-therapy" instead of AIDS treatment? Because that's the kind of thing some believe.

Exactly.


Really? Wow. I would not have expected that response. How unfortunate.

Considering that was the point I was originally making, I find that odd. Maybe it went over your head as the effects this election will have on gay people didn't even make it onto your radar.

My concern I'd for my niece, who as one of the hated groups (especially by Pence) is rightfully worried about her safety in this new America. She is genuinely afraid right now.

I appreciate what Angela is doing to help protect people like her. For those of you that think your lives won't change, nice for you. I hope the cost others are paying on your behalf is worth it.

For everyone else, good luck. Canada helped the underground railway before. We may have to do it again.

I could go on, but all this election has done is shone a light on just far we need to go to achieve equality. These things might not effect you, but they are very real to me.

All persons running for President, and if elected. Must endure the lies, hatred and vitriol directed against them. Just a normal part of the process.

The lies, hatred and vitriol directed against her. Has nothing to do with her gender.

Hillary is getting Equal Treatment. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Bollox.

Perhaps you should read my posts before you make unfounded accusations. I think my calling Drumpf a sex pervert and my call for him to be registered as a sex offender should tell you I'm disgusted by it and him and his kind, but of course that doesn't fit into your world view, or that chip on your shoulder won't let you see it.

You are the one with the chip on your shoulder if you thought that comment was about you.

Same post with the rest about me, yes it was about me as you did not indicate another subject. I'm sure that was your intent. That is the truth.

..

I could easily see you using Barry Goldwater's words, “Extremism in defense of feminism is no vice. Moderation in pursuit of feminism is no virtue.”

Are you seriously suggesting I'm an extremist? Oh good grief. What a ridiculous thing to say.

I think my calling Drumpf a sex pervert and my call for him to be registered as a sex offender should tell you I'm disgusted by it and him and his kind, but of course that doesn't fit into your world view, or that chip on your shoulder won't let you see it.

You are the one with the chip on your shoulder if you thought that comment was about you.

You have a not so perfect, but highly competent women running against a hot mess who admits to sexually assaulting women and somehow it's a close race.

I've watched female news anchors get patronised and shut down, even told to 'shhh' by male republicans, right now Megyn Kelly is my new hero because of the crap she has put up with, and I don't even agree with her politics. Ive watched every misogynistic insult get hurled at Hilary. I've watched old white men twist and turn trying to justify Trump's behaviour as normal. I've seen crowds chanting "lock her up" even though she's not been found guilty of anything and no one seems to think this is terrifying and appalling. I think they down play it because she's a woman and there must be something bad about her just because she isn't playing to traditional gender roles. Just the way you intimate that I'm an extremist with a chip on my shoulder because I don't either.

I think the endless pointless investigations against her about Benghazi were a form of intimidation and harassment designed to shut her down. They've even admitted it. I think the fact that she is held responsible for her husbands behaviour is sexist. It harks from a time when women were their husbands property and were supposed to think as they did.

I could go on, but all this election has done is shone a light on just far we need to go to achieve equality. These things might not effect you, but they are very real to me.

(I'm going to regret the amount of work I'm going to have to do to go up against 2 very articulate people... but the INTJ in me can't help himself)


You and Angela are talking up Hillary as if you are talking about Elizabeth Warren. I don't get it. I feel like I'm watching a totally different movie.

Just like I feel Mark & I are watching a totally different movie in regards to Trump.

I would far prefer Elizabeth Warren, but I would also prefer the criticisms against Hilary were based in reality.

Perhaps American use of that phrase doesn't match British and/or Canadian use of the phrase. Google seems to come up with many different definitions.

http://everydayfeminism.com/2014/11/against-sexism-hate-men/

I am sure it gets tiresome to you all because I keep spoiling your fun by pointing out sexism.

We'll it is tiresome to me too, but because of the massive gender imbalance on these forums, if I don't do it, no one else is going to. Does that mean I have a chip on my shoulder, or does it mean that I am doing my best to bring some balance to the debate? The way you chose to frame it says more about you than it does about me.

I am righteously angry about the disgusting level of sexism that has been shown during this election. That you aren't, tells me we still have a long way to go. At least half of the people here don't even see it, just the same way they can't see the racism against Obama.

So as one of the few people here who sees that the emperor has no clothes I'm going to keep pointing it out until you can't help but see it. If anyone else wants to take over and give me a break, go ahead.

A Veteran Spy Has Given the FBI Information Alleging a Russian Operation to Cultivate Donald Trump

I have no idea how true this is. There is so much false information flying on both sides now that I don't believe anything posted by anyone at the moment. It's like America has gone nuts.

I'll post it anyway and you can make up your own minds.

Angela, with all due respect, I'm not a progressive because of what those policies have done to inner city America. Detroit, Baltimore and more. Controlled by 'progressive' policies that have not improved their residents situation in 50 years.

Time for a real change, not a promise that's a lie meant to enrich just one family.


JaundicedEye, please know that the respect is mutual.

The last time we had a Progressive Government, FDR was spending us out of a depression (...and ramping up a war effort.)

Urban decay has many causes, racial discrimination being the primary cause. To blame "progressive politics" for urban decay seems a bit simplistic to me, especially since President Obama (who I support and think has done a very good job, given the economy he inherited and the number of global crises facing all of us), did not deliver unto me, upon a silver platter, my much desired socialist utopia.

..And don't forget the damage done by the 'War on Drugs'.

the vitriol directed against Obama was/is racist.


Seriously? Racist?

My problem with Obama is he is a liar, unmitigated coward and an imbecile. Stupidity doesn't have a race.

Indeed it doesn't.

I can't remember if you were one of those convinced he was born in Kenya or not.

I do find it odd that you find it so easy to call a man who has proven his intelligence many times "stupid".
