Think I would have voted third party or stayed home knowing what Trump promised was so fundamentally opposite of social liberal and old fashioned progressive lifetime belief system? Not a chance in hades. Hey it is anyone's choice and I would say nothing except for these constant OP's trying to rewrite what ya'll contributed to.
    Again, I voted for Trump because the only other option was hillary.
    Thanks from Madeline

    There sure as fuck is a difference. Progressives are not fringe voters, and you and I would not be discussing what policies we want adopted if we had voted Democratic. You would just ignore us and continue selling out to the 1%, as Hillary had been doing for 30 years.

    If Democrats want to win again, they will have to commit to progressive ideas and candidates.

    If I couldn't write in, I might have. I hate them both, for virtually the same reasons.

    Shoot first? I don't think they need to shoot protesters at all. I would, however, think that any protester that obstructs traffic, either foot or vehicle, throws objects and/or destroys property are arrested and charged with a felony.

    Fuck that noise. I did everything I could to try and turn back the Titanic.

    You wouldn't listen. You don't seem to actually want any progressive policies. Just a corporate whore with more polish than Trump, so you can enjoy the middle class's death spiral in greater comfort.

    We obstruct freeway traffic here, a lot. Works well. Nobody gets hurt, and citizens are warned to use alternative routes.

    I don't think felonies should be charged for misdemeanors solely because they occurred during a protest. Ours have been peaceful, with only a few arrests immediately after Tamir Rice was murdered.

    Tax breaks of any kind at any time should always be pursued.

    Then I misread your post. Good for you. You voted your conscience.
