Sorry but this is bullshit. Don’t kid yourself into thinking that people love Jill Stein or Gary Johnson more than they do Hillary Clinton because all your friends in your little friend-bubble have convinced yourselves that Hillary and Trump are equally bad people. Johnson wants to get rid of the EPA and Stein at least partially buys into the bullshit that vaccines cause autism. Thanks, but no thanks.

There are a lot of voters who want to get rid of the EPA, so I can see them wanting to vote for Johnson based on that and other shared principles. Just because you think it’s a bad idea doesn’t mean the entire electorate does.

As for Stein, you seem to have bought into the smear campaign against her. That’s not really surprising. But, in interview after interview, in her own words, she says she does not know of any evidence to support the claim that vaccines cause autism.

It’s up to you what you want to believe. Facts or fiction. I choose facts.

There are a shitton of people who voted for Hillary because they wanted to. She beat Sanders by a mile. Don’t pretend like you understand those voters. You don’t.

I definitely don’t understand the voters who think Clinton is a good candidate, because I think she is a repugnant human being, and I’ve never claimed I understand their reasoning. That said, they’re welcome to their opinions and they’re welcome to cast their vote however they want. I’m just here stating facts about the demographics. Yes, a “shitton” of people voted for Clinton because they wanted to, but an even greater shitton of general election voters are voting for her because they are opposed to Trump.

These are the cold, hard facts. I know it doesn’t make a lot of enthusiastic Clinton or Trump supporters feel good, but that’s just how it is. These people are voting out of fear, and you and everyone else saying the rest of us should get on board and choose one or the other are encouraging people to vote out of fear. You are willfully perpetuating an unjust system that serves us up terrible candidates who do not have our best interests in mind. I will not participate in that no matter how much you try to bombard me counterfactual claims.

Just the facts: Writer. Gamer. Feminist. Educated in Astrophysics. Professional Gambler. Student of Language. Satanist. Anarchist.
