Whoa! This was voted on by people currently in office. Also, Democrats, especially Clinton, are extremely vocal about doing something about 'fake news.' And Clinton has never been much of a civil libertarian.

I know folks who were afraid of Clinton not because they thought the email server thing was a big deal, but because they feared she might start a war with Russia. That's no different than you -- than your whining about the possibility Trump might start a war. And they seemed about as reasonable -- I mean as hysterical, irrational, and unbearable -- as you. And, yup, like you, they tried to browbeat others into voting for their candidate -- even telling third party voters and non-voters that it would be their fault if Clinton got in.
