I don't know anyone, not one single person, who didn't vote for Clinton after voting Bernie in the Primary. Bernie himself rallied for HRC. He was gracious, he never went negative. It's time to stop the fairy tales. It's like Democrats WANT to lose.

6% of Sanders voters either stayed home or voted for Trump.

The fact that you personally didn't know any isn't evidence.

You know there's an election THIS year, right?

Are you going to write-in HRC to get revenge on those gosh-darned Bernie Bros?

You have to recognize Hillary's strategy. She's using reverse psychology by berating Bernie Sanders, figuring that all those who voted for Trump to spite her last time around will vote for Bernie to spite her this time around. That way she gets rid of Trump and the Dems get back in power to toss her a bone. Evil genius.

Might as well use their hate for a good purpose, I suppose.

It won't work. The Dems aren't astute enough to reassure people that they won't let Hillary back into government; so, Trump will get the votes to make sure she doesn't.

If Hillary kicks the bucket before the election though, that'll be a game changer.

What? No. I will be voting against Trump. Nominate anyone. Nominate a ham sandwich, I will vote for it over Trump. Hell, I would even vote for myself over Trump, and there is nobody on this Earth that wants me in the oval office.

Why?

Seriously, why?

Specifically, why?

Because he's a two bit, low-rent fascist who has done more damage to our system than any other president.

And when I say "fascist", I mean "fascist", not "someone I don't like."

and then the 2nd month...

Henry, as I understand your position you want hands off businesses, no government regulations.

Here's what happens with no regulations and this is in warm & fuzzy Canada, there's no reason to believe it wouldn't be the same or worse here.

No regulations.

"trashing the military for his stupid wall"

How much did my employee divert? How badly did soldiers get stung?

#

"making toddler gulags an actual thing"

When exactly did cagin' illegal aliens start?

#

"installing lobbyists as the heads of their opposing agencies"

Surely, my employee is not the first to scratch backs?

#

"ripping up our alliances"

Takin' care of nations that can fend for themselves isn't 'alliance', it's 'babysitting'.

#

"trashing the cattle industry by backing out of the TPP"

Don't know nuthin' about the cattle industry. Me, I favor individual contract and treaty (individual to individual) not blanket affairs.

#

"using the government as his personal cash cow"

My employee is raidin' the coffers? I want his orange head on a stick! Help a brother out and lay some specifics on me.
