I'm a straight white male that lives smack in the middle of rural Texas. None of my friends, family, or acquaintances talk this way and I have quite a lot. Many of them are what would be considered "rednecks" and "hillbillies", and none of us talk this way. Not out in the open, not behind closed doors, not in a whisper. The school my family works at is probably 70% black, and 20% hispanic. We are a spot of white in a sea of black in the football stands, and we're all great friends. We have thanksgiving and christmases together because they enjoy our company and we enjoy theirs, and race has nothing to do with it.
And we all voted for Trump. Again race had nothing to do with it.
I do not deny that racism exists. Your inference that the people you know who voted for Trump are racist as*holes therefore everyone who voted for Trump is a racist asshole... well that's a reflection on you and the people you know. Period.
It is not a reflection on me and everyone else that voted for Trump.
I would suggest finding new friends.

No, I am afraid your read on this is fallacious in the extreme, and the fact that the system does not count missing votes as a vote of no confidence in the process itself, needs addressing in a big way, and as soon as possible.
Well, we're gonna have to respectfully disagree. I have my own issues with Clinton, but I really don't think that her presidency would have had the negative effects that Trump promised he would deliver.
There are certain standards that Trump breached, that needed to be addressed. Sitting this one out just gave him licence. And while the system may not count non-votes as important...they were essential to Trump's victory. Protest votes and non-votes got Trump elected. Those folks can draw comfort from that fact over the next four years. And I'm sure not interested in listening to any pissing and moaning from them if they don't like the results.
All I see is the hate and butt hurt Hilary supporters are spewing. Grow up.
