Yeah, I know...just need a minute to re-group. My plan is to become much more involved in local politics .....does anyone else notice the "dead" look in Trump's wife and daughter's faces as he gives his victory speech ?
We still need people to vote for the Senate and House of Reps. Don't forget, the entire House of Representatives is up for reelection. Then there are the numerous State and local positions that are up for election. Don't let the presidential nominee stop you from those other crucial votes.
Major Study Finds The US Is An Oligarchy
Study from Princeton and Northwestern universities has concluded.
In the United States, our findings indicate, the majority does not rule — at least not in the causal sense of actually determining policy outcomes
our analyses suggest that majorities of the American
public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts
When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites
or with organized interests, they generally lose

Plus I wanted any Bernie supporters who were thinking of joining with Trump to see for themselves what Trump fans really think of us. Thanks for helping out on that end, too.

So you're saying that Trump will win because he's the worst of both worlds?
A whiny, hypersensitive, easily offended, race card pulling super wealthy oligarch crony capitalist?

So, I am wondering if Trump has any new information on Hillary when she was Secretary of State or whether he is simply going to regurgitate existing talking points of which most of us are aware of anyway.
That's why we need to get actual progressives into those positions. Otherwise, we're just asking the insiders to make the changes that we want. And you see how well that's turned out.

Agreed. Trump is a buffoon, but as far as I'm personally concerned Hillary would need to literally have Jesus as her Vice-President pick to even consider supporting her over just about anyone else. Even then, I'd just be doing it in the hope that she got indicted or had a heart attack, thus putting the J-man in the oval office.
Winning the general is far from a sure-thing for Hillary, especially when you consider that rigging it is going to be significantly harder than rigging the nomination. (Which might not even be ultimately successful, there's still quite a lot going into getting the fraud she or her supporters obviously committed investigated.)
