Because it’s America, lol.

[@27917,Carver] They LOVE being exploited and lied to while desperately trying to sweep the concentration camps under the rug without really doing anything about it.
Carver · 26-30, F
[@803502,Oleander] Hey! Haven’t seen you around for a while.
Blackjack99 · 26-30, F
[@27917,Carver] My robotic assistant alerted me to interesting things going on here, kinda. Hi~
Not all did

Most actually didn’t.

[@23671,basilfawlty89] Would you like a little ketchup for your poop, sir? You oppose yourself. You know good and well what happened, but you don't care.
"The end justifies the means." Right?
Right!
I'm not bothered too much because I know the filthy vermin will eventually get what is coming to them.

[@23671,basilfawlty89] [quote]popular vote showed more voted for Hillary,[/quote]
And Hillary lost the election.
Cuz we use the electoral vote system.
Cuz, it's better for America.
Imagine if that witch had become president of New York and California!

[@841775,Budwick] I shudder to think of what that beast would have done to this country.😨
ProfessorChaos · 41-45, M
He lost the popular vote. Never forget that.

[@856337,easterniowegin] I know what a federal republic is, jackass. I also know what an ad hominem is -- literally, "attacking the man" -- and you did it [i]again[/i] during your attempt to weasel out of the fact that you did it.

[image=https://photos1.similarworlds.com/00/00/00/00/01/64/50/47/BlueVeins-9eUpVT76mI6W7QQ.jpg]

Of course, me calling you jackass is [i]also[/i] an ad hominem, but I think I'm justified in saying it on grounds of retaliation.

[quote]Luckily the US Constitution will always be "status quo" until the country is able to complete the ammendment process. It doesnt change on some emotional whim. [/quote]

The Constitution has been changed thirty-three times since the country's founding, sometimes for much dumber reasons like banning ethanol. Establishing a fair system of voting is by no means an "emotional whim" -- in fact, we've had an amendment changing our voting system as recently as 1971.

[quote]Do you not see the problem with a simple majority rule, as many look to remove our national sovereignty?[/quote] Minority rule is the real threat to national sovereignty and it always has been. Unpopular governments are way easier to overthrow and/or destabilize. Just look at Syria, Israel, or Venezuela. They're all countries where foreign governments are using dissidents as a tool to attack from the inside.

[@4199,BlueVeins] i called you ignorant...that is NOT a personal attack. You're just unarmed.
BlueVeins · 18-21, M
-Concern about outsourcing and loss of manufacturing jobs
-Fear of economic decline
-Dissatisfaction with the Affordable Care Act
-Fear of illegal immigration and violent crime
-Fear of lost intellectual freedoms/identity politics
-Fear of corporate lobbying

That's not to say I agree with or disagree with all of these reasons. It's just observation.
tenente · 31-35, M
[@4199,BlueVeins] i also saw a really interesting article about how increased adoption of internet and social media created an 'awakening' in Trumps base - they felt attacked and believed Trump would swing the pendulum the other way in their favor.
hunkalove · 61-69, M
Three million more voted for Hillary. I can't believe anyone voted for either one of them. This country is doomed when those two are the best we can do.
Americans didn’t, traitors to America did.
[@775793,JustChris] Agreed.

The other candidate Hillary wasn't a pleasant choice either.

[@806229,Thecarpenter] all politicians are shit 🙄
