I was really rooting for Bernie and I was completely outraged when abour the DNC election rigging, but come recent events I have to swallow my pride and go with the democratic nominee and vote Hillary, I refuse to let that bigoted man (Drumpf xD) ruin our country.

Gary Johnson's too much of a tool. I'm switching my vote fr Jill Stein. I remember how quickly Obama was corrupted into being a continuation of Bush, and frankly, not going into a another stupid war is my highest priority.

I can't really call Obama a continuation of Bush, though I can still consider him inhumane. He is a mild war hawk, and he was okay with big money in politics.

This will be the election of predicting the chance of a violent revolution and/or a presidential assassination. I wonder if the best favor someone can do for Trump is to vote for an opponent and spare Trump's life. But win or lose, I actually think the probability of a Trump assassination would remain about the same. Hillary's not safe either, although she seems less likely to be assassinated than Trump, and she'd still live if she lost, albeit in a jail cell. There's also a small chance of a third-party president being assassinated, although this wouldn't have nearly the same effects as the death of Hillary or Trump.

Just remember that Congress has an extremely high influence over the president.

While I do agree Gary Johnson is a tool, idk why that would make you want to vote for Stein who has economic views more absurd than Bernie's. At least you're not going with Hillary who said she would respond to Russia with military force over cyber attacks like the DNC leaks (which isn't even proven to be a Russian attack). Gary, and Jill are both anti-war, and Trump wants to work with Russia and build safe zones in Syria so literally any choice but Hillary is good if you don't want to be in another stupid war.

Two people died in two days that were close to the Democratic party and the Clintons: Seth Rich (alleged wikileaks source for DNC leaks) and Shawn Lucas (suing the DNC) so assassinations may already be a thing if you buy into the Clinton Body Count. I hope Trump doesn't get depressed and shoot himself in the back of the head twice.

Republicans are holding a majority in the Senate, and are doing okay in the House. Trump would have minimal issues unless there's party mutiny from the Ted Cruz types, and there would be gridlock with Clinton as under Obama.

If that's true, Hillary may be in more danger than I had thought.

Gary Johnson... ugh. I initially planned to vote for him, but it's looking more like the only issues he actually cares about are (pro-) open borders, having the government coerce religious people, and possibly weed.

I always thought Sanders's economic policies were crazy, but I had a shred of respect for him because he seemed honest about saying what he actually wanted to do. Then he sold out to the democrat bosses on immigration. Check this out: he initially blamed open borders on the Koch brothers and the "right wing".

Gray Johnson is probably one of the biggest jokes to hit the polls once I heard Wocka Flocka Flame was running for president.

First she short circuited during her interview with Chris Wallace, and now she overheated during her 9/11 memorial speech. All you jokers thought you were getting the first woman president but really we're getting the first cyborg president.

Would this mean she's technically unfit to be president as she is unhealthy? If she passes out this quickly from heat exhaustion, how is she going to have meetings and visitations in the Middle East? It's not like ICBMs and drones make a good first impression or anything.

I would not be convinced by that particular video, but I looked at related ones and can believe it's real.

Well, that's something else I have to backtrack on. Before, the safety of Hillary, and now, whether she'd live if she lost.

But hey, I'm rooting for a Jill Stein victory, so forget Hillary.

Officially from the Clinton campaign: Hillary Clinton has a not-deadly type of pneumonia. It's called Walking Pneumonia, which means the pneumonia is more qualified to be president than she is.

^ That might be true about her voter base. Literally. There's a claim going around that Hillary is listing dead people as her voters in Colorado.

Now, if Hillary and Trump are "cancer or heart attack", then Gary Johnson is like shooting yourself. An article (re)surfaced about Gary saying government should not bother with climate change even if you say it's real, simply due to the growth of the sun, which is not expected to engulf the earth for a few billion years.
