I get the sentiment, and I would vote for AOC if I were in New York, but yeah... this election feels like a foregone conclusion.

Inb4: "A lot can happen in four months, you don't know for sure." blah blah blah

One thing not being mentioned here is that people were tired of establishment politicians who don't change anything. So many people voted for Obama hoping for change, but then said "fuck it" and voted for Trump.

Al Gore should have won too, but here we are.

Should we vote: yes. Will voting for establishment politicians prompted by the DNC/RNC fix America's problems: no. Both parties have a status quo that they want to adhere to, which is why we will never see more progressive policies like Medicare-for-all.

Tell that to republicans in California lmao. I agree with the overall message because more overall voters is better for democrats, but let's not pretend everything is so simple. We haven't even mentioned the electoral college in this thread.

Bit of a tangential point: Every vote counts but not every vote counts the same. Voters in California get less of a say than voters in Maine.

Anyone would be rattled by almost being shot in the face. I'm sure he will start using it to his advantage soon enough.

I really don't like Reddit's attitude as a corporation. The sense of entitlement from a user driven content aggregator is insane.

Though I'm not sure this holds true for dyslexics.

edit: Apparently it's more complicated than the example claims.
