Do you think California needs more Senators and Representatives in Congress? Do you understand the United States of America was never a democracy? Therefore, it was never meant that the popular vote should determine the election of the president. Do you understand how one party could consistently have the presidency sewn up? How would it be for you if that turned out to be Republicans? It could happen.
Several years back I was talking with someone and realized who my parents used to vote with/for. They were Democrat and always, as far as I know, voted Democrat. Guess what? The party back in the 40's, 50's and even to some extent the 60's and 70's was nothing like it is today.
When I looked at it, the republican party, among the two standard parties, was closest to what they believed previously. Since then, none of them is very close. The two major parties are pretty similar. Individual candidates are different.
One issue you might have with someone other than an avowed progressive(read socialist) being president is that in the past 8 years, the current president and the previous have increased their powers to circumvent Congress. While they don't have the power of a dictator, they do have more renewable limited powers than ever in the history of the United States of America. Notice how I type that.
I type it as the United States of America, not America. This is not a continent of countries working toward one goal. This is one country, a republic, trying to do things no other country has ever done before and we've been successful. We've been successful until we lost our way and decided we knew more than the rest of the world.
We are so arrogant, we think no one can harm us. We think we will always be safe and nothing can cause us to dissolve. Well, here we are arguing about this election. We do it because there are so many ideas out there. No one knows what this country is because those who taught you didn't want you to know. That way, they could teach you that it was something it never was. Now, you believe you are correct, when you are simply misguided.
