  • Did the Democrats nominate Hillary Clinton on purpose just to piss us off enough to elect Trump?

    Best answer: Both our major political parties were so out of touch that they didn't see this coming. A "traditional" GOP candidate probably wouldn't have beaten Clinton.

  • Is Hillary's popular vote win the equivalent to garbage time in the NBA when the winning team puts in bench players in an act of pity?

    Best answer: Yes and no. It's like pretending that the game being played was Checkers and claiming that she cleared the board, when the game really being played was Chess, and in Chess, who cares if you got rid of all the other player's pieces, as all that matters is getting into position to checkmate the King.

    Best answer: Yes and no. It's like pretending that the game being played was Checkers and claiming that she cleared the board, when the game really being played was Chess, and in Chess, who cares if you got rid of all the other player's pieces, as all that matters is getting into position to checkmate the King. You don't have to clear the board to do that. So getting more popular votes is completely irrelevant, because that's not the object of the game. It's getting the most electoral votes. This is why Trump spent so much time in swing states campaigning. Hillary on the other hand, was spending more of her time having concerts in solid Blue states where she didn't need the votes, and then she napped and didn't feel like campaigning in the swing states where she really needed them. I mean, this was not a secret mystery. The Democrats more than know this is how the game is played, as this happened to them before, when Gore won the popular vote and Bush still won. And in that election, Gore actually was much closer in electoral votes, as Bush only had 271, and Gore had 266, which is only a margin of 5 electoral votes, and so that's why there was that lawsuit filed about the Florida election surrounding the "hanging chads" controversy. But in the 2016 election, it was not even close, as Trump won the electorate with 304 votes, and Hillary only had 227, so he won with a 77 electoral vote margin. I mean, compared to the 2000 election, you could say Trump basically won by a landslide. So Democrats acting like this somehow makes them think they "won" is just ridiculous. It's one thing when you lose a game of Chess and blame it on the fact that you thought the rules of the game were those of Checkers, but then to decide to play again, and then excuse your loss on the same argument that you didn't know the rules is pathetic. Not to mention these rules have been in place a lot longer than since 2000. The electoral college has been around since our founding, and written into the Constitution, which was originally signed on September 17, 1787, so the rules have been in place for about 230 years. If Democrats have a problem with knowing how to win an election, because they can't pick up the Constitution and read it, then that's their problem, because this is the law of the land and always has been.

  • Why do you vote?

    Best answer: I do a lot of research on candidates before I decide which candidate I would vote for when I do vote. I also have been watching what support a candidate gets from other sources.

    Best answer: I do a lot of research on candidates before I decide which candidate I would vote for when I do vote.
    I also have been watching what support a candidate gets from other sources. The one who gets the best economic support often gets the most "press".
    A review of who is that persons inner circle is more important then what they campaign for. If one understands the Constitution it is apparent that no president (to site one office) actually has the power to deliver on campaign promises.
    The primary issue is the integrity of the person running for office. Secondly the party platform. If the person has no integrity- then the party platform no matter how appealing is worthless.
    I vote when I am convinced that the person running has integrity and I can agree with the stands they are taking on key issues.
    I vote prolife. I will not vote for a person or party that thinks abortions should be given with out restrictions, but I also will not vote for some one who wants to deny needed medical treatments when it is medically mandated.
    I am also pro-constitution. But not at the expense of any thing which could be seen as denying basic human rights. Meaning I do not agree with PC- but I also think consideration of others needs to be taken into account on many issues. For example I happen to have a "Stars and Bars" flag. But I do not fly it. To me that is not about "racism" but to some it is. I don't want a KKK member thinking we are good buddies or for one of my black friends to think I am with the KKK either..
    I would never vote for some one based on race or gender. These two items (and several others) do not even enter the discussion.
