For all those who voted in the recent US election, regardless of who you voted for. Good on you.


But for the nearly half of the Nation who didn't vote, now that it's all over and you have the result

Do you regret it?

As you can see by my profile pic. I'm Canadian so the only impact I have on your election was watching it from up north. But I am still curious and We do pay attention to it.

the problem is that it would not have really mattered, and even if we had more voter turnout in my state, my state was going to go red no matter what. No, I would not have voted for either Crooked Hillary, or Retard Trump, so it would not have mattered if I voted or not, because "third party" candidates have never won, and never will thanks to the way that the Electoral college is set up. That being said, while trump is the current "president elect", we could see a lot of so called "faithless" electors casting their vote for HRC later this year. They meet to cast their vote in mid december, so the election is not actually over. It is also not illegal to bribe an elector, or influence their choice, as well as there is no state or federal punishment for going against their popular vote, even though some states have laws dictating how electors are supposed to vote, there is no punishment for not following that law.

I live in NY state it did not matter thanks to the shitty stupid people that live in NYC no matter what NY went to Hillary, but it was neet to see the state was all red, but for the city and still the state goes to her.


also those that think third party voting is a waste of your vote.. so you vote for a lesser of to evils. Your a dumb ass! even if third party members don't get the win, by getting 5% they get funding to aid them the next time around, if they get around 18% they are allowed to stand on the stage forcing the 2 party system to have to Add to acknowledge the third party members.

Electors are not going to change the election at this point. There's too much of a margin. Also, voting third party is better than not voting %100 of the time.

people saying that their vote would not have mattered
- you also choose your Senators, Congressman/woman, Supreme Justices, as well as State propositions.
those matter just as much as choosing a President. Congressman/woman holds ceos accountable, Supreme Justices have the final say on the Law, state propositions can increase or decrease tax revenue and make local changes (state-wide) to the law.

i did vote, though i didn't choose either one for Pres.

my vote didn't really matter in this red state (actually scratch that-- since most of the country is red)

at first i was thinking that i should stay out of this presidential election since they were both horrible candidates

the other two are not great either

peer pressure kicked in-- so i decided to vote

the person i voted was not even on the ballot!

now they want a re-vote? instead of a re-vote

not not check how many of those ballots are from NON-Citizen or the death

it will be the biggest scandal of 2016

i don't know if this information is true or not -- but there are 3 millions ballots from non-citizens and the death ?

seems unlikely given how the votes were under a lot of scrutiny after Trump's accusation.
i don't think there was a confirmation of voter fraud (there was an attempt by a few Republicans to do that, but they were caught)

Nah. I would have voted for Clinton, but my vote goes to New York, which she won regardless.

i'm sure both sides had their hands in it

project veritas has a lot of videos on it with well known figures from DNC

there was a case on the local news here-- it was not caught by anyone

the person in question came to the local news and pointed out that he/she can registered to vote and requested a ballot even though he/she is not a US citizen-- using his/her driver license

he/she was charged a few days later..

the person didn't vote! but pointed out the loophole for them to see

apparently if you are not a US citizen and you clicked "yes" on that box it's a crime..

but it's only a crime if you get caught from the look of it

instead of driver licenses-- i think passports might be ideal

Actually I vote in all of those decisions (well most of them, if a state proposition doesn't apply to me I'll skip it) but still skiped the presidential vote on account of how my state AZ is always red so my vote as one of the few liberals wouldn't have made much of a difference.
