@ PredicatableChaos I'm with you on this one.   If a person voted for a 3rd party with the hopes of getting at 5% of the vote in order to rceive federal funding, I believe that is a valid and admiral goal but you don't get to compalin.   That's just my position.

I wonder if the registered voters who chose not to vote, alleviated some of the anxiety and confusion encountered by those who did vote. Or was their non-vote a "no" vote to both, which may have actually increased their anxiety? But the poll data certainly got a lot of of scratching our heads!

@Maryam

I agree with @Terry on this one. "None of the above" is a choice.

If you've made this choice, however, you don't get to protest the outcome of the election.

Those who sat out the election -- or just skipped the presidential space on the ballot -- made a choice by not choosing. We don't always get to be super-excited and inspired by those seeking the nation's highest office. B

Terry I am a big supporter of exercising choice it's what makes us  free citizens! Unfortunately, as we saw in the election 49% of US citizens didn't make a choice, I am not sure Zen was there reason though.

Choice doesn't necessarily equate with freedom, but a lack of choice is almost always indicative of repression or heavy-handed controls. I suppose there's a certain Zen-ness to no choice making you free, but most of us lack the fortitude to embrace that on a regular basis.

Broadway sadly I think it says something about our valuea and our ability to accept the truth as a country. In a day and age when facts are so easily checked it is scary that we can have conspiracy theories so widely accepted.

Having done my civic duty by voting already I know wish I could put myself into a coma and just wake up when it's all over.

Maryam, I think love is so blind today that people know that certain candidates aren't speaking the truth every time they open their (his) mouth, but they still say, "that's ok. We still have to vote for them (him)!"
