So Ted Cruz just dropped out. The Donald is going to be the GOP nominee now, and that looks to be one hell of a situation we're going to have on our hands come November.

Hey, now wait, no, Kasich is still running.

So there's still, like, you know, kinda some sorta hope like thing, right?

Right?

 

 

 

And hey, if Trump gets elected, I could always go work on my doctorate in Australia. So that's always an option.

I HAVE to blow everything up! It's the only way to prove I'm not CRAZY!

Looks like it's going to be a Trump-Clinton contest.

 

I guess the question now is: Do you want business as usual, or do you want to see something crazy?

Crazy beats status quo any day... It'll either shock people into action, or fix the massive problems we already have.

I'm full of shit

^That and The Wall too.

 

Also, I don't normally do this, and no offense to anyone, but a big middle finger and a fuck you to Trump for calling my country a terrorist nation.

Welp, now what?

I think this was probably the most frustrating part of the election for me, overall.

Where the hell were The Wall references? The joke practically writes itself!

Don't care, just glad it's over. Then we get to do it all over again in four years and it'll probably be worse, hooray.

I'm not saying I started the fire. But I most certain poured gasoline on it.

I've been putting off watching the news, but I Just saw the results. I kind of feel like I'm living in a terrifying alternate universe where the human race won't survive the 21st century. Centuries from now, when our far more advanced parallel planar neighbours master dimension-skipping technology, they'll come across the melancholy wreckage of our civilization and shudder.

 

P.S. Forgive my dramatic flourishes, I'm just rather anxious about being in a "special relationship" with America right now.

they pass their abuse from ear to ear

Well this is the fourth time in US history that the candidate with most votes from the people lost because of the electoral college. Can't say I'm surprised.

28,584,625 for all Republican candidates. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/republican_vote_count.html

27,834,835 for all Democrat candidates. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/democratic_vote_count.html

 

Make sense to me that Trump should be in instead of Clinton.

Votes for all candidates of a party don't validate the outcomes. In fact, those 2 links show Hillary had over 2 million more than Trump. Even the popular vote count at the time of posting this(according to the "election" google search) puts Hillary at almost 300k more.

 

I'm not happy with the outcome and even if it was the reverse I'd still not be happy. These 2 candidates are unqualified imo and adding electoral college bullshit on top of everything really drives the frustration that much farther.

 

Voting sure does feel useless now.
