The elections are near and it is time for SoL to vote, cast your ballot.

I voted because...

Goddammit, I fucking hate this election so much and I'm glad it'll be over in less than a week. If this is the best America can bring to the table, then we've got a lot of fucking house-cleaning to do.

Fuck the media, fuck the candidates, and fuck the Internet.

This is my final statement on 2016 Election.

Far from perfect, but what's the alternative?

Voting for a candidate who does not represent me is a violation of my civic duty as a voter.

Neither candidate represents me.

Therefore, I would vote for neither and would probably look up a suitable third party if I lived in the states.

Trump is the better choice for me even if I don't like him as a person or all of his policies.

Sure, though I thought that my opinion on the matter was fairly well known.

I think Hillary is the most corrupt and bought up candidate to date. She is very shady and self-serving yet also somewhat capable and crafty. I think that only makes her more dangerous because she will repay her big money backers and secure a shiny future for herself as well, to the detriment of the American people and the world at large.
In short, she will be more of the same corrupt, big money oriented, elitist and unresponsive governing, but to a much worse degree. She is good enough to be terrible.

Trump otoh is a bumbling fool in comparison, he lacks the skill to manipulate the system and he is not nearly as influenced by big money as she is. He will have a lot less impact as a president. His ideas are not perfect but they are fresh, they may just shake up the status quo and that is very welcome.
He will likely do a lot less damage than Hillary, lacking key backers as he does. He is the very definition of choosing the lesser evil.

Third party is where I would probably leave my vote, with Jill Stein most likely because Alepo is crazy. But First Past the Post binds my hands. Voting for the minor parties is like throwing your vote away, you are forced to vote strategically for the major party you dislike less. It's literally math.
So while IJ's or Marthen's sentiments might be noble they just don't chime with reality.

That is how my thinking would go if I was an American and really being one would probably not change my opinion. And the above is my main reason to vote Trump, but Mertico is right that I do have a minor reason for disliking Clinton further. Her history with us and her hawkish rhetoric in general will likely mean the already crappy US policy towards us would get just a shade crappier under her.

I hate both candidates, Hillary for being a corrupt war criminal with an aggressive political stance, and social statements which remind me too much of Merkel. Trump for being a sucker for Putin, temper tantrums which can easily be spinned into accusations of bigotry and racism, and approaching the presidential office with a businessman attitude.

Fuck them both.

Both are shite, but at least Trump has the potential to shake up The Establishment(tm) whilst Hilary is more of the same, at best.

At this point though, I'm honestly beyond giving a shit. Just let it be over. The toxicity of the internet has imploded 300% and SoL is a prime example of that.

Voted for Hillary, because Trump is confirmation of every negative American stereotype if elected

Also I don't ant him to work with Putin or nuke the world, or stack the supreme court with conservative justices

Edit, I don't understand how people see trump as anti establishment or less susceptible to big money or fresh

He is the establishment stripped of niceties, he is big money put in the drivers seat, he is the status quo and regressive stagnation personified, wrapped in the veneer of angry rebellion

SMOD 2016.

The only vote worth casting because it's the most important and last vote you will ever need to cast.

Imagine how dumb all the people who voted Hillary will feel when the FBI confirms all the evil and disgusting shit she's been up to.

I pray for this day to come.

I have only the slightest of clues about what the hell the Hillary-email thing is about and unless she's having Bill handing out handjobs to terrorists i don't think it's that big a deal. Rich people are scumbags, more news at 11.

As an Austrian i feel a little bit of unusual kinship with the americans this time. We don't have the 2-party system around here, where every oppinion can be neatly packaged into one of two political doctrins, whether it fits or not; like me, for example, a quite liberal almost-hippy who nevertheless hates the world's regressive stance on nuclear energy (more specifically on the lack of nuclear power generation research - of course shit's gonna remain dangerous if nobody invests in making it safer!) and the killing of babies; if i was american i wouldn't know who'd i WANT to vote for.
But being Austrian, i rarely vote for whom i want to reign, i generally have to make do with the least shitty option out of 4 to 6, depending on whether or not you count the tiny parties that have no chance of ever actually getting shit done. And especially with the rise of the FPÖ you tend to either vote for them or to cockblock them - heh, shit, give it a century and we probably WILL have a 2-party system.

So why would i vote Hillary if i was an american citizen? Damage control. That's about where it begins and ends. Looking at the world - World War 3 is comming in our life time one way or the other anyway, there's really nothing to be done to prevent it. The question is: would i vote for the less-shitty option... or for the guy who's already planning the fucking sequels before 3 is even out yet? Trump is, at best, an idiot, with the political finetuning of an AT-AT. Voting for anyone but Clinton would throw away one voice against Neutral Evil. You can still vote for the candidate you want to see in charge next time, guys. Just prevent the Orange Menace now. You'll have years to clear up your act afterwards.


As an Austrian who's currently looking into the second re-election of our (normally useless) presidental office i would also like to extend my thanks to America for making us look ever so slightly less like idiots. Shine on, you crazy diamants.
