BREAKING: JOKE WINS JOKE ELECTION

La Riva has a possible 135 electors if she wins California, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Vermont and Washington.

Moorehead (WWP) is eligible in Utah and Wisconsin, which is another 16 electors.

Soltysik (Socialist Party) is also eligible in Michigan - this adds 16 electors.

That's 167 electors. If the college is split after that, all La Riva would have to do is convince 103 electors to defect to her, presumably after the endorsement of Jill Stein after dropping out. This isn't over.

Does it, Stego? Does it? Or did I already exclude that from the calculation because I assumed La Riva won the state, and therefore won the electors?

i think, obviously, that they split the state and clinton ends up eking out a victory, thus subtracting those electors and demonstrating once again the urgent necessity for principled yet chill unity among marxist-leninists.

i am curious why "no", the most supported option in the previous discussion thread, did not pass muster as an endorsement

I think everyone agrees that the best thing to do is obstruct the voting process for others by, say, screaming wildly in the polling booth until they make you leave.

Wow. Reported for actionable terrorist threat.

Voting for Gloria la Riva is exactly the same as not voting.

the tpaine brand is so solid that despite choosing a new avatar every few days the image is always instantly recognizable, "that's tpaine"
#22

Soon captcha will be asking you to highlight all the tpaine avatars in a set of images and using the data to train strong AI neural networks in advanced posting techniques.

i'm just happy my mostly white noise posting could contribute to it's making.
#31
the best thing to do on election day is to not vote and organize a rally opposing imperialist forever war where literally no one is allowed to say a single word about any candidates or elections

#33
Hey guys, don't forget to vote! It doesn't matter who you vote for as long as you exercise your constitutionally protected right! Let's keep democracy alive!

what a season what a season. and it all leads up to this day. which one of them had enough money to buy the presidency? what kind of last minute Russian-Al-Qaeda supercyberplot will ruin all the voting machine counts? where's Jeb? what is tpaine drinking? all this and more -- that's what we're gonna find out today, folks.
