Did anyone really believe that the Clintons were the least bit less ~neo-contrivaservative~ than Trump? At least Trump probably won't roast us all in thermonuclear fire as Clinton would have. Look at all the dreadful things the Clintons have perpetrated against the downtrodden:

Too bad we don't have simple score voting. Then we could give between 5 and 10 votes to many candidates. But no votes at all for Hillary the war monger. 8 votes for Bernie (since he is less bad than Hillary). 10 write-in votes for Jesse Ventura, and 10 write-in votes for Dennis Kucinich.

Strategic hedge simple score voting can be described in one simple sentence: Strategically bid no vote at all for undesired candidates (ignore them as though they did not exist), or strategically cast from five to ten votes for any number of candidates you prefer (up to some reasonable limit of, say, twelve candidates), and then simply add all the votes up.

So why not protest for that? At every election I get out and protest the election itself, the election machines, and the choose-one method we are now saddled with. I stand right next to the fools who hold up signs in support of the two fascists the one-two party system forces on us.

Trump is an obstinate authoritarian, so there should be plenty to protest later on.
