I'm struggling with the concept of a wasted vote.  I think my last vote was wasted.  I voted with my head instead of my heart.  What we got was worse than anything most of us could have imagined.  Those who voted for the current POTUS voted with their heart.  No rational person could have voted for him.  It is clear that there is not a single divide.  The political spectrum looks more like a hand knife sharpened pencil end on.  What would have happened if we had all, like SBAmy voted our heart?  Would it have made the unthinkable even more probable?  Maybe we need a White Supremacist party, a Wealthy Elite party, an Ivy League Pointy Nose Intellectual party, a Peace (no-nukes) party, a pro-Israel party, a Grateful Dead party, whatever making it clear what people were voting for.  That would avoid making Rich Bankers and Middle America Bigots having to form false coalitions on the front end.  The coalitions would have to form in the open.

I'm not sure that the Russian Trolls, in trying to sow discord, may not have done us a favor; have made things clearer.

First of all, it is funny how all of the dedicated Clintonistas, like Politico's (now WaPo's) Josh Dawsey, John "Screech" Dean and even the "Damn those progressives that refused to vote for our designated puppet" people here, are still steadfastly pointing at everything other than the fact that Hillary sucked so much that a lot of people voted for a spoiled bag of cheetos rather than her.

Secondly, Do you really think people changed their vote based upon LEGAL ads on freakin FaceBook (that neither of us admittedly use?)

Lastly, please explain to me why it is SOOOOOO terrible that Russia (and at this point it is still a BIG assumption that it was the actual Russian governments doing) promoted selective regime change via FB ads when the Israelis do the EXACT SAME THING via AIPAC pressure/bribes campaign contributions and the US does the same thing using cruise missiles and special ops troops?

Amy,

Hillary sucked. We get that. Most of us agree that she either sucked some or she sucked a lot. She didn't suck remotely as much as Trump did, who sucked so much worse that it was worth voting for her to stop Trump, and even if she was damned near as awful as Trump, a vote for her still would have made sense in order to get a liberal Supreme Court majority. That third branch of government could cost this country one Hell of a lot for a Hell of a long time. Unlike Presidents, those guys are Lifers. 

I have no idea who was affected by Facebook. I don't know who is affected by ads. Someone must be or advertising wouldn't be so expensive.

And now I'll go to the Lastly, for at least the third time, as I keep giving you an answer and you keep ignoring it. Try to get it this time. 

The problem is not what the Russians did. The problem is what Americans colluded with them.

Do I need to repeat that a few more times for you? Just in case:

The problem is not what the Russians did. The problem is what Americans colluded with them.

The problem is not what the Russians did. The problem is what Americans colluded with them.

The problem is not what the Russians did. The problem is what Americans colluded with them.

As to whether the actual Russian government is involved, everything I've come across from any intelligence source or anyone with serious access to intelligence sources, including Joe Biden, has stated that we know the Russian government is involved.

Kindly keep in mind that this conclusion is not one the current administration or Congressional majority likes, and the intelligence services work for this government.

Nice straw man you got there, Dorthy.  Too bad that it has nothing to do with what I said. (but nice try at deflection away from what you don't want to talk about though...)

You see the problem is...   I was responding to your post which contains nothing but a link to a story that includes things like:

“Other advertisements paid for by shadowy Russian buyers criticized Hillary Clinton and promoted Donald Trump. Some backed Bernie Sanders and his platform even after his presidential campaign had ended, according to a person with knowledge of the ads..."

"...there is currently no evidence that Stein, Sanders or Trump knew about the ads or played any role in producing and promoting them."

P.S.    Dude you have exactly zero access to "intelligence sources" to come across so just stop it!  

Also, Joe Biden is a loud mouthed hack.  If you consider the spewings coming out of his biased ass to be valid "Intelligence sources" then you are as big of an idiot as he is.  (If he were REALLY sharing valid, and undoubtedly classified, "intelligence sourced info" don't you think he'd be shut down immediately???)

One other comment, Amy, if what the Russians did was/is wrong it doesn't make any difference what Israel does.  If what Israel does is wrong it's not relative to what anyone else does.  That argument is similar to, "Trump colluded with the Russians."  Response, "what about Hillary?""

The question about whether the Russian Troll Farms work at the behest of the Russian government is an interesting question of whether it makes a difference.  If they are funded by Russian oligarchs who exist at the whim of whatever the KGB is called now does it make a difference who funded them?  Unlike the U.S., where businesses control government in Russia businesses are controlled by the government - apparently.  I would like to know whether the Koch Brothers colluded with Russia, for example.

The long term effect on Justice in America created by another lifetime of a conservative court is the thing that made me cry myself to sleep after the election results came in.  (I didn't really but I felt like it.)
