I thought as I got older, I would learn wisdom and patience, but the only thing I have learned so far is that I don't give a damn.

Pure conjecture. And inaccurate.

I won't take your word for anything. You wasted your vote. And now we have a conservative court for the foreseeable future.

Y'all that wasted your votes can go pound sand.

I've already shamefully admitted to voting for Hillary. And the person who I campaigned for right up until November 7th, Dr Jill Stein, (after Bernie was railroaded out by the DNC and media) received less tha 2 % of the votes, while 9% of Democrats voted for Trump.

7% of registered Republicans voted for Hillary. I'm not sure how many would have voted for Bernie, but all of the "___ would have won" statements seem to overlook the biggest factor:

About 45% percent of Americans eligible to vote in 2016 didn't. All the "what ifs?" pale in comparison. Running two highly unpopular candidates against one another led to very low turnout. If either party had offered anyone less horrible, it's likely the outcome would have been different.
Populism is temporary refuge for the ill-informed.

Time Warner owns HBO.

Time Warner was a big donor for Hillary Clinton.

Bill Maher was doing what so many other, so-called edgy political comedians (like Samantha Bee and John Oliver) have done: shill for the corrupt Democratic Party establishment of corporate sleaze bags.

Real Time with Bill Maher is easily avoidable.

Your sentence, "About 45% percent of Americans eligible to vote in 2016 [did not]," is considerate; but, it is routine that, in United States presidential elections, the eligible percentile range of participating voters is usually in the 50s. So, the 45 percent who did not vote, making it 55 percent who did participate by voting, has been fairly consistent for a good number of presidential election cycles. (After the 1960s, the "turnout" has been less than 60 percent. The low point was in 1996, with about 49 percent. See the sidebar, and backtrack to previous presidential elections, here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_2016 .)

Turnout was a 20 year low. You don't think that running more appealing candidates would bring more voters to the polls?

More disturbing is that, for the severe level of unpopularity for both major-party presidential nominees for Election 2016, Donald Trump vs, Hillary Clinton managed to combine for 94 percent of all votes cast for president of the United States.

It's all of the above. The system is rigged .

The last time the Democrats and Republicans allowed a 3rd party candidate into the nationally televised debate was in 1992. Ross Perot did so well, even after being joked about on SNL and late shows everywhere, they put an end to that.

Ralph Nader Knows a little about both these parties also.

321 million people in the U.S. and those two are the best we can do?

In a poll, 20% of voters said they'd rather the earth be destroyed by an asteroid than to have either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump as president.

Those are the same ones who also said they'd move to Canada after the election.

Well we do know he couldn't have done worse than Hillary. 1/3 of his supporters voted for Trump. :cheers:
