She lost the election. Period. That is a fact.

Ah, I see, so voting for someone corrupt is somehow putting on one's "big boy/girl pants", eh? Apparently a lot of voters out there don't agree with that assessment. And guess what? That's America; that's their right, too, and I back that right.

Only because you let yourself be convinced by the Powers That Be that there was no other choice. And that's really the major point of this thread, now, isn't it? Something in our political system is severely broken if you really thought that. Seriously, don't vote for someone just because that person's a Democrat, but rather because that person actually has demonstrated good policy choices. Hillary has demonstrated the opposite, in quite a few ways. Here are just a few.

We really do need to choose better candidates during these Primary elections. Good on you for voting for Bernie in the Primary, in my view. It sounds like Dr. Jill Stein would've been a better choice for your vote during the General Election, given your stated beliefs.

No, you're pouting now because Hillary lost, much like the "Hillary voters" were pouting after Barack Obama beat her in 2008 in the Dem Primary. The reaction I'm seeing from the Hillary voters today is very similar to then as well.

With the republicans having two years of total control of the White house, house, senate , DOJ and stacking the courts, if there was ANYTHING to the E-mail slander do you really believe the republicans would have turned their backs on a chance to convict a Clinton?
Given that you brought up the emails in this thread, I find that part of your comment especially amusing.

Yeah...they did. :-) And they are likely to continue, because as AOC's election has shown, establishment punks like Hillary did not, and do not, represent what they believe in. And again, that's one of the major points of this thread. I'm glad to see this kind of discussion happening, because it's important.
