    Yeah, yeah, I psyducked up with that particular line and I apologise for it. It came out as far too angry and I really didn't want to sound that way. Sorry.

    What i'm not letting up is the part about the "message". Yeah, you sent a message by voting third party. Exactly, "I don't mind if Trump wins so I'm not going to vote for the only candidate that can beat him". So I hope you enjoy the four years of Government of the candidate whose victory you did nothing to prevent.

    @Kory: Actually, the practical difference between voting for a dead gorilla and voting Libertarian/Green is zero. I'll admit that the former is much more disrespectful than the latter. But, in the end, the result is the same: a wasted vote. She might not have voted at all, for all anybody cares.

    And no, I don't think the 3% of Johnson voters or the 0.98% of Stein voters will cause anybody to reconsider their party platform.

    You're not going to be deported.

    I'm pretty sure that congress is going to check and balance the psyduck out of Trump. Some of his "campaign promises" probably won't even happen.

    Imo, it's Pence we gotta worry about. He's very dangerous, especially the women and the LGBT community.

    It's also possible Trump won't even make it to Inauguration Day, he's got a lawsuit coming up for fraud. And many other pending lawsuits coming up, so.

    And Went, at least she voted, and didn't vote for a stupid dead gorilla like those 11,000 idiots. =/

    what the actual psyduck, Went... "i hope you're still alive and well" That's just a bit too far.

    Like I said, it's finally time I voice my opinion and not care about what others think. I know to some people it was a mistake, but I had the right to vote and the right to choose who's a better fit for president.

    That suggests that even if Clinton was just one iota better than Trump, that it would still be the voters' responsibility if Trump won. Don't you think that Clinton, and the Democratic Party in general, should have considered white working class voters more closely? I don't believe that you would have had to sink down to his level in order to do that, and even if Trump wins the white working class vote anyways, the balance might've changed just enough to prevent his presidency - it was a close election after all. And it's unfair to blame anybody in Texas, it was pretty typically unbalanced in favour of the GOP anyways, just like the past however many elections, regardless of what a couple of polls suggested.

    I honestly think that the Democratic party did not put up a credible case against Trump for a very significant minority of the population, and it's not fair to blame everybody else for that failure. Besides, Trump has walked back a lot of a lot of his claims (I don't think it's accurate to see them as campaign "promises" that we might attribute to a regular politician) - for example, it's likely that the "wall" will turn out to be a fence aka "improved border security" which isn't any different from what Clinton has said in the past and continued to say throughout her campaign. RE: deportation, they've happened under Bush, they've happened under Obama, and Trump only has to maintain the status quo in order to be the bogeyman he portrayed during the campaign.

    In any case, I don't think it's going to be as hyperbolic as the rhetoric he said nor as literally as how the media took it.

    I hope you think it twice in four years. I hope you are still alive and well- and able to vote by then.

    If you didn't vote for Clinton, I hate you

    However, having significantly more of the popular vote- especially in certain states- significantly influences the electoral college, so there's still a hell of a lot of blame on those who did not vote Clinton. Yes, the system's a mess, but there is no excuse for voting anyone but Clinton when you know that a dangerous bigot is the only other person with a chance of winning.
