"Show some class"? is that like, stop your bickering, what the hell, lets elect Cesar and Hitler to the oval office...

yah quiet kiddies, this won't hurt a bit.


Your neighbors went to the polls and gave us the choice between King Joffrey or the White Walker. People raising a ruckus about it now is useless....The People, using their political parties, crafted this election quite purposefully. Well....if you ignore the strongarming done to Bernie.

Point being: its not like the average American didn't row the boat that got us up this river.

Maybe the next time we get a chance to elect a president, people will take it a little more seriously.

I think that will be the only silver lining the next four years will wake many up and take it more seriously.
Unless one of them takes complete control.

its all just a means to an end.

about now, we pretty much ignore the true cornerstone of our nation: the rights of the individual. In a democracy, there can be no such thing. So it pretty much gets ignored as everyone falsely believes we are a democracy.

But perception is reality....so a democracy we seem to have become.

I disagree a bit. Ron Paul was popular, so was Bernie Sanders. They blocked them for the same reason they will block Trump. They didn't get with the program.

"They"? You mean the people we, as a people, keep funding with donations (and votes)?

How many folks have settled for Hillary once Bernie was pushed out? Thats the problem....that we will settle.

When you "settle", this is what you get.

I mean they were popular with the people but the globalists blocked them from running. Not the people, the controllers.

Edit: Once they said bernie is out, what choice did people have?

Their choices are limited to what is provided.

The Republican view of the media is a fantasy.
The same type of people that think they're being spied on.

in 1980 it was.

now we have social media to build grassroots from. a write in campaign would at least be an effort.

Bernie had plenty of chances. He wasn't pushed out until Trump started winning. If a mainstream Republican got it, Bernie would have been the choice. They went with Hillary because she has pull and more importantly she could actually beat Trump. If she couldn't beat the Republican nominee, she never would have been given the nomination. Rubio, Cruz, Fiorina, Paul... probably anyone other than Carson or Trump would have resulted in Bernie winning the Democrat nomination.

In hindsight, I think Bernie campaigned wrongly. He legitimized Trump and kept saying he would run to beat Trump. If he had been dismissive of Trump and tried to push other Republicans into the spotlight he would have done better. As it is, by legitimizing Trump he enabled the biased king makers in the Democrat party to go with their first choice.

Do you still write your congressman?

I did that once, got a form letter back. Matched exactly one that a friend go too. And he was talking about a completely different subject.

We wrote a senator Cranston about issues before the ballot. Later he was part of something called ABSCAM, a multi millions rip off. This was decades ago.

This was the era of Reagan in the 80s, bleh...
