And if enough people do what you are proposing you will never end up with anything other then the choice between dumb and dumber. If all the D's who hate Hillary and R's who hate Trump would vote for one third party candidate instead US politics would be reformed overnight. Instead D and R continue the charade that nothing but Roe Vs Wade matters.

Wrong again. It has been said that all politics is local. If you want to see change, get involved in the Democratic party and do your part to make it into what you want to see. Don't be like the disaffected dipshits who are walking away from the election just because their candidate didn't get nominated.

"The DNC is corrupt and badly in need of change! Don't do the one thing in your power to change it!"

Pull the other one.

See, there's your problem. You, who clearly failed high school civics, seem to think that the only recourse you have is to act like a petulant child and throw your vote away, very possibly allowing an unstable buffoon to get elected. That is not the way to get it done. Not even close.

I was a Sanders supporter. Now I'll vote for Jill Stein.

I'll *****NEVER***** vote for Hillary Clinton..... EVER.

And if enough retards like you do what you are proposing to do, Trump gets elected and appoints ultra conservative justices to The Supreme Court. Do you have any idea how badly that is going to fuck things up for this country? Don't bother answering. Clearly you don't, otherwise you wouldn't be acting like a petulant child with your vote. No, don't even try stand on principles here, because what you are doing is utterly unprincipled. I agree that the DNC is corrupt and badly in need of change. This is not the way to do it.

Exactly. I am very disappointed that people think it's okay to compel anyone to assist in any way one's own prosecution,

So... you would hold that opening the door when the police inform you that they have a warrant to search your premises for evidence of a crime is somehow different from unlocking your phone in the face of the same kind of legal request. Fine. Please tell us. In what way is it different?

Burn down the private healthcare industry and start over. As a society, we need to get back in touch with the basic fundamentals of what constitutes healing and caring for one another.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, has driven modern medicine so far away from the business of healing as has the insurance industry. Google the term "managed care", and weep for the days when physicians and other caregivers decided how to treat their patients. Worried about "government death panels" that decide who gets life saving care and who doesn't? Congratulations, sucker. That blatant misdirection worked on you too. In the U.S. we spend more (far more) and get less (by any credible metric) than any other industrialized nation when it comes to health care. To blame the physicians for this is absurd.

Oh, just shut up already, you whiny liberal bitches. This is the free market we're talking about here. You can't just call for the government to step in a regulate a sacred thing like that. What you should have done is shopped more carefully. If you wanted a piece of equipment you could service yourself, that's what you should have bought. The invisible hand can fix all ills. Shame on you for not wielding it more responsibly.

... so much for anybody ever using a British ISP for anything. Aren't "conservatives" supposed to support corporate interests, instead of killing businesses outright?

Yes, but they're also supposed to be almost completely clueless when it comes to "all that computer stuff", so a little "mixed messaging" is to be expected.

Troll? Seriously? Look, I will stipulate that Hillary and her people did a poor job of handling sensitive communications IF you Republican fan-boy asshats will acknowledge that poor security practices are the norm in most federal agencies, including the State Department during this administration and the previous one.
Agreed? Fine. Let's move on.

So I guess we really are left with nothing but a party that is desperate to deflect attention away from the colossal embarrassment that is their presumptive nominee for president. Y'all really should hope that Hillary wins, because the damage that your boy will do the Republican brand if he actually gets elected will make your current discomfort look like the good old days. But hey, if the NRA likes him, it must be safe to support him. Right?

Only the phones get you the full, real time attention of an agent.

The people put on phone support are at the absolute bottom of the hierarchy. They are the least knowledgeable about your problem, and the least empowered to do anything about. Oh, and they also hate you.

Yeeeees... and again, that is exactly the problem - companies don't value their customers enough to properly support their products or services. How do you think it is that AT&T or Comcast are reaping record profits? It sure as hell isn't because they offer service that is superior to their "competitors".
