This messageboard has proven time and time again that it is just a microcosm of the reason why Trump won and Mrs. Clinton lost. Neither you, the Democrat Party, nor Mrs. Clinton should be so condescending toward people just because their beliefs are different than yours. When you tell people that they are morons, racists, idiots, or a basket of Deplorables because they believe what a candidate other than yourself says or does; don't you think there is going to be a major push to vote against you? Why do Democrats THINK they know what is good for everyone else? Healthcare was forced down our throats. Healthcare costs have skyrocketed. Why? Because when you make it mandatory for something to be purchased, the people who sell that product can name their price because you MUST purchase it. You enabled the insurance industry to become the same thing you rail against the banking community for being. Obama pandered to the UMWA in 2008 and won huge in West Virginia, then turned around and declared war on the coal industry. Mrs. Clinton had the same view as Obama. Why do you think the major coal producing areas voted for Trump. That happens when a Party philosophy determines that people who make good money doing their job should be forced out of work because coal is BAD and renewable resources are what is best for everyone. What happened was the Democrat Party and Mrs. Clinton pissed off a large portion of what is left of the middle class, the people living in rural America, people who are just scraping by, and even alienated some from their own Party. In Pennsylvania alone, over 10,000 Democrats switched Party affiliation during the last year. That is a State that normally is carried by the Democrats. Maybe what people need to do is climb down from their moral, intellectual, philosophical, and condescending high horse; and re-evaluate what makes you think YOU know what is better for well over half of the country. BTW, who did I vote for? No one, I didn't even register because of the four candidates, none of them were worth casting a vote for.
