It's dumbfounding how stupid politics is.  It's truly become a game of appealing to the lowest common denominator votes and trying to look like the least corrupt of two essentially awful choices.  Standing in a room with either of them with a limber mind you realize they're both just really good at manipulating their target audience and it has little or nothing to do with what'll happen after they're in office.  It's just a game man, sucks that the pieces are millions of people and the players are sociopaths but it is just a game.

See, I had the opposite opinion. I think that our political process is a work of genius. Not that the individual players are any smarter than those of us out here in the warrior wasteland but that the system itself has got us figured out. They play on our basest emotions, fear, hatred, anger and they do a spectacular job of it. Over decades they have reasoned that they can throw in the occasional religious comment or remind us of who we are supposed to hate or throw another wedge issue into the public square that will keep us all fighting with each other. The biggest fear that they have is a united proletariat, all of us out here in tv and shopping land coming together and thinking, more or less, as one. It seems like every time I see some promise that the people are starting to pull it together something new comes up for us to argue about and the public at large doesn't possess any longer the ability to discern beef from bullshit. Our current election cycle shows me that we have played right into their hands. 30 or 40 years of voting for the lesser of two evils has gotten us to this point and we have been conditioned to believe that we don't have the right to demand more from the system. 330 million people in this country of which probably one third to one half are of legal age to run for president and this is what we end up with?

It's a fair point.  It's stupid that it works but it's brilliant how it's crafted.  Humans really are so easily manipulated.

Today is 11/9/16 Wednesday - the day of the Aftermath - And all last night a line from the song Mrs. Robinson kept going through my head... "Laugh about it, shout about it when you've got to choose; either way you look at it you lose..." All we can do is carry on, one Dude at a time...

At least weed is legal in California now.  We might need it to get through the next four years.  ;D

Indeed. Trump is by no means an ideal candidate. But at least we don't need to worry about war with Russia anymore. Glad to see California join Oregon and Washington with regards to weed.

Worse than Metallica.
Bunch of assholes.

And of note is how completely this election was conducted by capitalizing on the fears of the electorate. It's surreal watching it all just play out. It's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Rewarding the powerful for making us afraid is not a good recipe IMO

Hunter Thompson called our state of mind a "national nervous breakdown". Now we've elected a notoriously dishonest Manhattan billionaire to clean up corruption in Washington and address the plight of the working class.  Only in America.
