In Europe you sometimes have 11 parties where you can vote for, so you just choose which party fits your lifestyle. Here the "independents" actually don't like either party, so most don't even vote, but may be forced to if things get too crazy.
We're getting a bit off topic, but we don't have a corrupt voting system; we have a voting system that allows the minority to overrule the will of the majority. It's an infuriating way to choose a President, but I wouldn't go so far as calling it corrupt.
And as I've pointed out many, many times - European countries have an entirely different system of governance than the United States. Those eleven (or more) parties get together after elections and form coalitions that is then by a Prime Minister.
However, voting for a third party candidate in the United States is the same as literally throwing your vote away. My statement about the Bernie or busters is different. It is a fact that Bernie or busters in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania provided more than enough votes to Donald to hand him the Presidency.
I was not trying to steer the conversation away from Mike Pence and abortion, but was merely expressing my ongoing frustration with the Bernie camp for the shit show we find ourselves in and reminding people that all of this could have been avoided had those Bernie or busters simply stayed home in 2016.
Elections have consequences. That's something nearly half of the population needs to realize.
