I will admit that telling people to not vote at all is a mistake, as the rest of this election process is crucial, but, not for our President, that opportunity is beyond lost.
But, here is why I think there is more to gain by NOT VOTING for a Presidential candidate. Try to follow the math, and then decide if it makes sense:
Assumption 1: there are about 1/2 the population who are legitimate registered voters, so if this is true, about 320 Million live here, that means about 160 Million are voters.
Assumption 2: about 30% of people don’t vote fairly much every election for a multitude of reasons: apathy, indifference, sheer inability per work demands, or don’t even know they can vote. SO, if true, that means our number of viable voters is now to about 110 Million, give or take a couple million just to round things out.
Assumption 3: 35-40% of voters are Democrats, and I honestly believe that 85% of this group will vote Democrat even if their representatives pull off masks and reveal themselves to be spawns of hell, so that means from that 110 Million figure about 36 Million will vote for Clinton hell or high water.
Assumption 4: 30-33% of voters are Republicans, and while they also are more often going to vote (R) irregardless, I don’t think it as high as their Democrap counterparts, so I see about 70% voting for their candidate irregardless if a jerk, quirk, or simple a squirt. That adds up to about 24 million per the 110 Million number above.
Assumption 5: the remainder of voters are about 33 million, per the total Democrat being about 42 mil and Republicans about 35 mil total each, adds up to 110 Million number out there to be at their precincts. If these folks really are independent or 3rd party committed, and then see the folly of voting for either Johnson or Stein (see John Oliver’s last show on HBO who laid out how these two are idiots at the end of the day), the assumption here is about a 1/3 will vote and split it evenly between Democrat/Republican/either of other choices to equal about 4 million each, as 1/3 of 33 million is close to 12 million total.
So, if these above assumptions have merit, then the math shows Clinton gets here 36 million from her deadhead, er, diehard supporters along with the 4 million independents who are ready to give up their independence, =40 million. Trump gets his 24 million cult followers and the other 4 million clueless wanderers, =28 million, and the independents who are hopelessly and naively optimistic that their vote counts give the Johnson/Stein/ Mickey Mouse crowd about 4 million total.
So my point?! Clinton wins this election with 40 million votes, out of the 72 million total cast is going to be about 55% of the total, BUT, 40 million votes out of an electorate size of about 160 million is only 25% of the country that counts in saying they can support a candidate is NOT a mandate, which she will hideously screech in her acceptance speech, as well as her legion of doom followers across various outlets will echo.
A win is a win? No! This antisocial cretin will get away with this attitude if the country allows it, but, again, we can marginalize ignorance, selfishness, and downright illegality. So, when she tries to push her antisocial agenda hidden as political cause, we can unite and tell her and her cretin followers, “NO, you have no mandate, and you certainly don’t have our approval to be screwed!” The Washington D.C. Mall having a million or so people protesting the various shit she will try to shove down our throats will lead likely to two outcomes:
She can order American Military to fire on her own people, which won’t keep her in office much longer once such a heinous show of brutality was done, or, she could slink back into her White House confines and try to manipulate with her minions who would as a whole be freaked out the country is not happy. And then she might be further marginalized by her shrinking supporters, who realize standing in front of an antisocial loser gains nothing of real substance at the end of the day.
Who knows, maybe pervasive marginalizing might lead to further ostracizing as a next weapon to further minimize her damage to this country?
Just a thought. Now I get why Carlin said there is more to gain by not voting than to vote and put incompetent, selfish, and ignorant people in office to screw things up.
Besides, all this duress and defiance against her might enhance that coming neurological event I hope she has. The next question is, will a President Kaine be an acceptable substitute? That one I leave to readers to ponder.
Hope the hypothesis was worth the read…
Good luck November 8th, not that luck will help!…
Addendum Fri October 21:
Like I said, it is a personality disordered electorate that supports these overtly personality disordered candidates. This link reveals the Trump ilk:
Remember just this one thing if nothing else resonates in you: these two ooze like an arterial cut it is either their way, or no way, and they have many MILLIONS who not only agree to that, but are more than ready to practice that!
“Online hate has become so common that it’s almost a point of perverse pride among some pundits. If you don’t get hateful messages, you must not matter. If you let the hate bother you, then you must be weak. Indeed, in a world where “feeding” the trolls only makes them stronger, admitting that they’ve hurt you at all represents a victory for the worst of the worst. They relish your pain, and you don’t want them to relish anything.”
And one wonders why French did not run for President. Gee, with over 50 Million Americans supporting these two slimeballs, who else can you attract to neutralize such hate and disdain for anything else not genuflecting to zealot agenda…
And that is why I call them Republocrats, same cloth, just different color…
