On the other hand, Bernie's kinda concession speech after he met Obama puts him firmly in the "never Trump" camp so now what are you gonna do?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Vote Trump anyway?

Maybe Stein so when Trump wins I don't feel guilty for screwing myself.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

There seems to be a trend around here.  We're so disgusted with who our party chose, and the process that led to it, that we're seriously considering voting for the candidate from the other side.  It'd be interesting if we weren't so miserable over it.
Probably not a Goat, either.

It really highlights how far removed the parties are from their constituents.

Doubt it will change much but hey more information is good I guess

Are the parties removed from their constituents?  Or are we that distant from the "average" member of each party, whatever that would be?  Are things so polarized now in every which direction that it doesn't make sense to try to stuff everyone into one of two big tents? 

Or was Hillary an unstoppable establishment juggernaut, and Trump a perfect storm of celebrity worship and red meat for a perpetually irritated base?

Wasn't trump supposed to have a big clinton speech?

As of now it seems like the nation is collectively waking up to how crazy it would be to put him in power. Maybe it took a massacre for him to finally put his foot in his mouth and have it stick? Or maybe it's this cycle and next month we will all hate Clinton for some new reason and Trump is now the better option?


Again, I still think it will be Bernie. But still.

The Clinton attack speech was replaced by a Ban all Muslims speech.

I bet you all that FOX & Co will continue to spin the terrorist angle, even with more details coming in about prolonged mental instability and the fact that he was probably gay.

Bet someone at ISIS cringed super hard when they found out too late. This was not TERURISMS. It was a sick mind with a big gun.

Oh, and of course it's too soon to bring up the gun debate. We should mourn and not speak of it for as long as it takes to get the next one.

*shrug*

Don't know what to tell you about the gun debate. Background checks seem reasonable. Our government somehow keeps getting away with doing nothing.

NRA is apparently okay with "delayed gun sales", whereby the sale is delayed for [xxx] amount of time while the FBI investigates a person. If they find something bad, they can get a judge to do [xxxx].

I think that's about the best you're gonna get from the NRA on this issue. Everyone saves face and the NRA got a **** ton of revenue from the entire debate over the years.
