I would like to submit the following for post-of-the-month by Darkbane, because of the sheer brilliance of the idea he puts forth about a "none of the above" to option to choose when voting for president.
this is why voters need to be given a "none of thee above" option for every election... because sometimes primary candidates run unopposed, so how could they get a better choice from the ideals they feel match them the most, and how could they remove two crummy choices put forward by both parties... "none of thee above" would be a simple way to ensure they can remove candidates from a party they support, if they don't bring someone the people view as quality... it would also solve this pesky problem we have of judges who almost run unopposed in damn near 95% of elections nationwide... check your ballot on tuesday, I bet there will be several judges up for re-election, and I bet all those local judges will be unopposed... you can't tell me not a single person wants the job, its just the good ole boys club that punishes any lawyer who opposes a sitting judge once that lawyer ends up back in the court rooms, thats why it almost never happens in this country, aside from state judge races...
P.S. and its even worse, when one party doesn't even bother to run a candidate, because the area is controlled exclusively by a super majority of one party, so nobody gets ANY power since there is nobody running against some of those politicians... this is why "none of thee above" would help those folks who don't like the one candidate running unopposed because the other party has zero chance to win anyhow...

I may be on the side of the angels...but don't think for one second that I am one of them.
If you voted for Trump or Clinton, you don't get to complain about government corruption, dishonesty, and unethical behavior. You just voted for it.
Republicans, be glad that when Trump was deciding which party would take him that yours was the most desperate. He could have easily ended up a Democrat and you would have had to suck it up and vote for a D to get your "anti-establishment" "uprising".
