Watch who you're calling an idiot.
He did get a national vote victory if the 3-5million illegal votes weren't counted!

Voting for Stein or Johnson in a swing state makes you an idiot.

If you couldn't bear to vote for Trump, you should have voted for Hillary.

I understand being disgusted with the whole process, and not liking either of the major parties, but 3rd party voters could've voted for Hillary to try and prevent this. Margin of losses: MI: 0.2%, PA: 0.7%, WI: 0.7% & FL: 1.2 %. Granted, its mainly the campaigns own fault for basically ignoring the rust belt and not campaigning there until it was too late, but it was still as close as can be. Maybe some of them would rather he won, which is fine, but I assume many of them in those states will end up complaining about him and wish they sucked it up and voted for her to try and keep him out.

And I do get the basic appeal of Trump not being a career politician, but of all people, how could anyone trust him? Bill Gates he is not. He thinks he's above the law much more than she ever did. And his lies are probably much worse.

I will say the ending of the TPP is probably a good thing, but that was going to happen regardless.

I still stand behind my belief that people should vote their conscience, despite what happened. It's hard to stick to my guns on it, but in my gut, I still fundamentally believe it's the right thing to do.

I voted for Gary Johnson in a swing state in 2012. If I'm an idiot, you must be a real dumbass.

Scientists prepare their own march against Trump

A vote is a tool. The right to vote is precious, the vote itself is not.

What do you suggest someone such as myself that wants more than two options should do?

The three witnesses recall the story this way: Mr. Langer, a 59-year-old native of Bavaria, Germany — a winner of the Masters twice and of more than 100 events on major professional golf tours around the world — was standing in line at a polling place near his home in Florida on Election Day, the president explained, when an official informed Mr. Langer he would not be able to vote.

Ahead of and behind Mr. Langer were voters who did not look as if they should be allowed to vote, Mr. Trump said, according to the staff members — but they were nonetheless permitted to cast provisional ballots. The president threw out the names of Latin American countries that the voters might have come from.

Mr. Langer, whom he described as a supporter, left feeling frustrated, he said.

The anecdote, the aides said, was greeted with silence, and Mr. Trump was prodded to change the subject by Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff, and Senator John Cornyn, Republican of Texas.

This. Even if people are looking for something new, shouldn't they also be looking for somebody who still has a fucking clue what they're doing? Somebody who actually shows an interest in this very important job they're about to apply for, who actually respects the institution?

I remember a comedian commenting on the "He's not a politician!" argument once, saying something like, "That's the job he's applying for, though! That'd be like me saying, 'You know what I like about my lawyer? He doesn't act like a lawyer.'"

Good . I hope there's so many protests over the next four years. I want every group of people Trump's insulted and whatnot to be a big ol' thorn in his side and fight like hell against any of the BS he tries to pass.
