The DNC betrayed their people's interests, when they had a candidate that galvanized stadiums with his words and brought in independents, they silenced his words so they could have their piece of the establishment pie. When they were caught lying and doing bad things instead of taking responsibility they pointed fingers at Russia. 3rd party voters didn't split the vote, the Democrats split their own votes by putting up a second Republican. The Democrats just lost the house and are shrinking by the moment.

Jennifer, I agree with everything you just said. Bernie was my first choice too. Hillary became the lesser of two evils. I don't imagine I'll live long enough to see this mess turn around. And, with life expectancy being what it is, that's probably twenty something years or more. I worry more for my child and grandchildren.

The DNC represents one of America's elites. The RNC represents the other. They cooperate more than they compete.

Libertarians are ideologues and say their dogma.will fix America. Few trust them.

Will America's Greens do what Germany's Greens long ago did and attract enough voters to become a national party?

Okay, some whining is inevitable. When we get it out of our systems, what will we do?

I'm pissed off because the Democrats took their demographics for granted and felt they were entitled for votes. They talked down to Bernie voters calling them Bernie Bros, talked down millenials telling them to fall in line, talked down to Trump voters calling them Deplorables. That's not how you persuade people to vote for you. What was her stance on BLM or NoDAPL? What was her campaign besides Trump fear? When did she take any responsibility from the Podesta Wikileaks? Not that I personally like a piece of shit degenerate loudmouth scam artist like Trump but he should've never w, especially if they went with the true populist candidate in Bernie. Hell I was reading an article today from Bernie and nowhere did he called Trump voters names.

The Democrats did nothing to get the independent votes. Heck during the primaries they were either pushing away or has it in their legislation to not have them, in which would've helped Bernie extensively.

Jennifer, your description of Hillary sounds like a description of trump. At least Hillary didn't sexually assault women. As far as we know. Every damned one of them need to get out of bed with the banks and corporations.

The two-party system has been a long-standing joke, and we've finally gotten to the punch line.

Thanks for posting, Jennifer. I feel like the rug has just been pulled out from under me, the country, and the world. There will be damage from this presidency that will be long-lasting and arduous to fix, if we even get the chance.

Jennifer, I can agree with you on many things but I think we are in for a hellava ride. Clinton would have been politics as usual with everything predictable, but you said it that people are sick of the Establishment. This is really what got Trump elected. Just how he fairs as POTUS remains to be seen. He may do good, he may do bad. He might find out early that he cannot do exactly what he wants to do and have both sides opposing him on many issues.

I'm upset like everyone else, but, everyone is sick of Establishment politics. The Democrats lacked responsibility and foresight to put up a candidate who was up for indictment, was careless with classified information, was a warhawk, pro-fracking, and worst of all not a person of their word and convictions.

well ok.... a not too bright rock would have been better than trump >.> but too late now.

To be fair, I voted for a woman. I'm not sure I really like Jill Stein, She's not bad and unlike Hillary I think Jill is quite sincere in many of her convictions (more so than Hillary anyway, I think you're assessment that Hillary is the hallmark of establishment which both parties are technically on the same side, just look at the voting record, OH WAIT Jen did ! <3 ). I mean the most disappointing aspect of this whole election was not a SINGLE good option to go with, so many women could have been better than Hillary, so many men could have been better than OrangeOversizedWhiningBabySmallfingersDictator. BUT both Jill and Hillary would have been FAR superior picks to the alternative.
