That 46.9% of us failed to do the most basic function required by our democracy shows a disdain for the process that validates our liberties and freedoms. I am appalled at my fellow countrymen/women who felt that their time was better spent doing something else other than claiming their right to participate in their own governance. Let me be clear here, there is no perfect candidate and never will be so not voting because we were angry over some perceived slight to our way of thinking is childish and dangerous. The best candidate is the one who needs to be elected despite their flaws in some areas of our concern.
So instead of getting a slightly flawed candidate we got a tyrant who lied, stole and cheated his way to the presidency because not enough of us cared to stand up to him and his corruption. So not only are we abdicators of our own right to choose we are now cowardly for not being brave enough to stop the carnival barker who was a wolf in sheep's clothing. This is the most disgusting era of American politics I can ever remember and if not for my own indomitable will to see this era end I would have left this nation to you who cannot find the will in yourselves to throw the bums out! This next round of elections should prove to show whether we have learned this simple lesson that should have already been learned, that being vote like your life depends upon it because surely it will if you don't.
