Do you believe Russia hacked the US election?

  1. Yes, without the shadow of a doubt

  2. If the FBI and CIA and other agencies say it, we should take their word for it

  3. There's a slight chance it could be true, but no actual evidence has been made public yet

  4. It's all bullshit, the FBI and CIA are blatantly lying as ordered by the democrat government

  5. I don't know what to believe anymore

Results are only viewable after voting.

    california, new york, and washington contain 50%+ of the population of tje US? and they all vote the same way? weird.

    we all have to register for armed services, why not just register them to vote when teens do that? and treat it like jury duty? with days off and all that? though identificaton would limit the number of people that could vote, unless you make people get one while registering for armed services as well.

    Only men have to register for the draft. Are you trying to suppress women's suffrage?

    Further this is shown within the Blue Wall theory.


    (Playing a bit of Devil's Advocate) Because the system really is not a presidential election so much as a weighted collection of 51 different independent elections somewhat like the World Series is.

    Russia hacked Hillary's brain to make her not listen to her husband and to not campaign in Wisconsin, and for some reason to campaign in Texas instead.

    I think everyone should just laugh it off as if a 9 year old is trying to get clever. just see it as a joke and ignore it... it's starting to look like a game.

    This doesn't quite work when you learn that it's not just the Democrats who are accusing Russia of meaningfully interfering with the election.

    We're all so well politically trained that if the opposite party says a pile of dog poo smells and tastes like dog poo we say "no, it's like it's ice cream!" and grab a spoonful. We're currently following that dog, spoon ready, just so we can contradict the other.

    Not all of us. There are quite a few that refused to blindly follow along behind the pied pipers that mass media shoved down our throats.

    In my opinion they're both awful.

    Nothing quite like politics to cause divides among friends, eh? Because I see that too much and it's the reason I rarely or willingly discuss them, no matter how civil I try to be.

    Unless the leaks were fake, I don't think it matters because the leaks informed voters rather than deceive. The ultimate decision came down to american citizens.

    Yup, yup. Regardless of who hacked what if anything (who even knows at this point), the actual voting machines or voting systems were untouched. We learned a bit more about internal corruption in the DNC. I'm sure the RNC has similar corruption, but once that kind of info is out, you can't just dismiss it on grounds that "you were hacked." If we find the alleged hackers, great, but the info's out, no denying.

    From Slate: "I know that Islam is also not necessarily tolerant towards homosexuality. … I also didn't understand much about Islam other than that it's a religion that hundreds of millions of people in the world follow."

    And so he resolved to learn more. He turned first to Wikipedia, then forums and Tumblr pages.

    I think it's bullshit from the media to try to ignite loads of stupid drama.
