83. I have to totally agree with the post and add one thing....

They knew who they were voting for and decided to vote for what they perceived to be their own self interests. They not only mistakenly thought they were voting for themselves, but they knew they were voting against so many of our citizens including people of color, women, Muslims, etc....Without a doubt, some of the people they voted against were in their family but they did not care.

And now I see articles where they did not believe Trump when he said he would get rid of Obamacare and these folks are scared because now it seems they screwed themselves over despite the fact that they always touted they loved Trump because he says what he means and he means what he says.

I have Obamacare and am female. I did not have health insurance until Obamacare came along. I have a close friend who makes maybe $75/month at flea market stalls and is living off the last bit of money from an inheritance. He swears to me he put in the proper numbers and that Obamacare costs too much. Yeah, right. I know his financial situation and I know he would be getting medicare and that it is free. He is a staunch Republican and posted on FB that he was not voting. I did not try to change his mind because I know who he is stupid enough to vote for.

These people voted against me on two counts. They wanted my insurance gone (but not theirs) and I am female and they have created a very hostile environment for my sex.

Some people will die without Obamacare and they will be the lucky ones. All of the climate scientists claim that we are at or very near the tipping point. Not just being stupid but voting out of spite, to show those liberal, people voted to possibly end our planet. More species will go extinct. Reindeer are dying in droves because of climate change. Our planet is dying and you cannot fix the type of stupid who vote for the extinction of every living creature on this planet.

They listen to talk radio and they will not listen to a single thing you have to say because they are brain washed. There is no talking to them and they believe we are stupid for listening to what are actually the facts. They believe they have a strong hold on every fact out there and that we are the ones who cannot be reasoned with. They believe we are stupid and they laugh at us for trying to save the planet and them along with it.

The ballot should have read "Hillary Clinton" or "End of Planet Earth" because that is exactly what was at stake. There are predictions out there that within our foreseeable future earth will have ended. The titanic is sinking and their band plays on.
