Well, I voted in the primary and general elections.  My congressional picks were shoe-ins and both my presidential candidates lost (looks like), but I did it :(

Yknow, you brits have a whole bunch of candidates for things. Can we borrow one of them and pretend its trump? :P

Even if they're rubbish at it and technically can't do it for constitutional reasons, they'll be less shit than our likely idiot-in-chief.
I keep on offering Boris Johnson. He currently fails on the residency, and he currently thinks he's Foreign Secretary, but if you can pretend to him, and yourselves, next time he goes over and takes a nap that he's been asleep for 14 years then I'm sure nobody would mind.  Prime Minister May won't (and because we don't have term limits, it's somewhat believable that she'd still be in power after Rip Van Boris wakes up again), and I'm sure that everyone your side ofmthe Pond will positively love him...

At least /k/ommandos will be happy, since they will have cheap Russian guns to use in incoming nuclear apocalypse.
Honestly I was thinking nuclear apocalypse would be more likely with Clinton, considering all her anti-Russia rhetoric and talking about implementing a no fly zone in Russia controlled Syria.
On the other hand, Trump supports nuclear proliferation, which would turn a good few more countries nuclear, increasing the risk of nuclear war in South-East Asia by quite a lot.

Clinton is sane, at worst you would get second Cold War, since Putin, while being basically a dictator, is sane too. Despite what some people here are saying, nobody in their right mind wants a nuclear war.
Trump literally asked why he can't just use nukes.

The year is 2016.

Liberal President Barack Obama ends his term with high approval ratings, and is succeeded by insane demagogue Donald Trump.

With Conservatives sweeping into power in the House and Senate, and a Conservative Supreme Court, commentators are hailing it as the beginning of a new Conservative Era.

President Donald Trump has ask the new Congress to move quickly to rubber stamp his radical insane agenda. The left seems powerless to stop this imminent trampling of Liberal Sanity and Justice.

Give constitutional monarchy a go! Plenty of young princess in Europe and elsewhere to pick from.

Yes, I am plugging the crown a lot today, but I've been frightened into a strange radical-conservative comfort zone of mine.

That said, I wholeheartedly approve of Trump for the message I feel it sends to the major parties: People are sick of their shit and will vote in a vulgar celebrity over the party line if they're pushed far enough. It's a very similar concept, just with what I assume are more coherent, professional actors.
Now if we could just get the stupid bastards to start voting something other than Republican or Democrat ...

True. Nuclear weapons are supposed to be a good deterrent though, supposedly. Maybe. What other countries besides North Korea could be batshit crazy enough to seriously consider launching nukes?

And there's always the eternal question of "Will the politician follow through on what they said during election season?" Maybe nukes will not be proliferated.

Welp, 3rd parties made no progress whatsoever.  Our country continues to bitch and moan about how our candidates suck but refuses to do a damn thing about it.

One or the other were going to win this year, no matter what, but if 3rd parties got even 10% of the vote things would have started changing for the better, just from pressure for voting reform.  Fuck that I guess. 
GG, China, it's your turn at world leader status, we got our heads so far up our ass that we vote for candidates we hate just so the other asshole doesn't win, instead of having the balls to vote for someone we don't loathe.

No it's not the end of the country.  But we just lost our grip on the last foothold we had that had a chance of getting us back to the top of the mountain anytime soon.  Instead we seem to be perfectly happy to stay in this rut of the elections just being a case of choosing who you hate the least, for at least the next 4 years, and someone being in power we don't want for at least the majority of next decade.
