My concern is if enough people actually do vote for the other similarly less worthy third party candidates and no one reaches 270 electoral votes that the result actually does go to Congress to choose the next president. Congress, being majority Republican, will then elect Trump.

So, yeah, I'm locked. She might not have been my first choice, but there it is.

Pissed off with McCain right now. He outright said this week that even if Hillary wins they will NOT approve any Supreme Court justice nominee she puts forth. So we're possibly permanently stuck with only 8 justices? McCain's up for re-election, but Arizona will unlikely vote him out over that.

Not kidding about how much I despise Mitch McConnell. He still blamed Obama for the passage of the bill that allows the families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia after he goddamn VETOED it and that Republican-controlled Congress over-rode him and suddenly went, "Oh wait! He was right! Why didn't he warn us more?!" In the overused words of their much-beloved Ronald Reagan, "There you go again!"

I've seen a lot of strong long time libertarians say they're not a fan of Gary Johnson at all. lol

Oh boy, the e-mails talk is back again. Is this really all they've got?

No one's said anything about the Bush administration (Powell, Rice, etc) using their personal accounts.

Perhaps the long con is finally getting revealed with all the things he's deciding to keep.

Not sure, but lost track of how many people I unfollowed on FB.

I lost one, but only because I was mutual friends with someone the guy hated. I had to unfollow five people.

My friends list is a little large due to the Mercs thing and I learned to just bite my tongue and just unfollow people so I wouldn't have to see it on my wall. Opinions are like assholes, everyone has them and they all stink.

Two: one a die-hard Democrat, the other a Libertarian. I personally haven't unfollowed/unfriended anybody. I've been relatively silent about politics this time around, aside from a few memes and some support for Bernie.

After learning a bit of Statistics (via science classes, WoW spreadsheets, and girlfriend shouting in frustration about sig figs, Standard Deviation, and mean from the other side of the house), I can safely say that most peoples' assholes smell REALLY bad. Present company excluded.

Except for what I've been posting here, I haven't really been talking politics at all online. I had one post on FB during the first Trump/Clinton debate, but that's it.

I've gotten into several arguments with my mom, though, since we carpool together for work. The first one following Nov. 8 was brutal. At this point it's easier to pretend it all didn't happen for the sake of our sanities.

I muted one on Twitter, but that was before the election.

Now, family is another matter. Thanksgiving is going to be a mental struggle to not beat my uncle with a large blunt object.

But then, that tends to be the case even without this particular election.

I like to keep an eye on people I wouldn't want to let hand me a drink, so I haven't unfriended anyone. Over politics at least. I think the closest to posting about it though was stalking some of Elara's statuses and making a stake for 2020 with one of her friends. I still say we do it…

I look more to 2018 and the midterm elections... we need Congress if we want to help stem the tide of badness.

We're eight months in, and I still have yet to EVER refer to that person as anything resembling the office of one who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

I will never use the term "45," because even that implies he is that office.

The 2016-2020 Republican Party is a circus, and Donald Trump is the circus master, and starring role as a clown. Here's the official theme of the USA:

I just call him Trump.

I'm not sure how to gauge what is happening right now. Some of the people that voted for him seem to be waking up the the fact that they got duped. Some are angry, and some are just doubling down on backing him.

The circus is a scary place.

Meanwhile, the Democrats seem to not know how to regroup and push back. The hard left is not really much better than the hard right some days, and it seems to be driving a wedge between the progressive and moderate wings of the party.

Could we finally be seeing the breaking points of both major parties?
