Your problem was thinking that voting for president would help your cause. You vote for a president to deal with other nations, make sure we're safe, and to work with Congress to help shape the path of the country on a macro level. Want to really influence your life with your vote? Then pay attention to and get involved in your local politics. As far as I'm concerned, no one who doesn't put more effort into their government than just voting has no right to complain about the outcomes.
