​Nobody is being unfair to Sanders, the fact is that Clinton has received
2.5 million more votes in total than Sanders.

​The only way that could happen is if Trump wins and institutes a fascist
state that punishes his political rivals, but the betting markets only give
Trump a 26.1% chance of winning (it went down .4% since my last post).

​All successful politicians are

Trump is crazy and I'd much rather give the nuclear launch codes to a
criminal than a madman. And criminal? Even Sanders thought calling the
Clinton E-Mail server business criminal was silly.

​not a member of the party but I'm very​
​in my views, ​and

​I know nothing about ​
Gary Johnson
​. That tells me the average person knows less than nothing about him and
the chances of him becoming president are about the same as me walking
through a brick wall by quantum tunneling; not zero but low, far too low
for the betting market to bother with.
