... I never supported Trump, and never would have. I certainly didn't support Clinton either, as she is totally a Republican at heart, and the long-standing, popularity-seeking anti-pedo attitude promoted by both her and her husband during his presidency is well-established, and I will never forgive the Clintons for their part in twisting the liberals into what they have become after the '70s. I also never accepted the "lesser evilism" excuse to support either the Republican Tweetledee and the Democratic Tweetledum offered to us every four years. To be clear, I supported Jill Stein in the 2016 election, and was proud to do so despite the fact that I knew she wasn't going to win. I was hoping to lead by example as much as it was possible for one politically-connected person to do, while refusing to accept the idea that we're stuck accepting the "least worst" of two bad duopolistic choices.

I will certainly continue to support the Greens. I was cool with Bernie Sanders, but he didn't go far enough IMO, and his run as a Democrat and hawkish foreign policies admittedly turned me off. We see too many Trump supporters here because we MAPs are a diverse lot politically, and alas, some of us will unfortunately (but predictably) pick sides in the duopoly battles. Too many will think supporting Trump and the alt-righters who mindlessly follow him is a "necessary" step towards opposing the SJW phenomenon; just as too many on the Left felt it was necessary to support Clinton in order to oppose the Trump idiocracy.

Me, I refuse to do what I feel is the equivalent of trying to decide which of two evils is the "lesser," or accept this as being the best thing we can do. I would never agree that either Trump or Clinton would be more friendly to us, or to society in general; they simply have different styles for doing more or less the same thing. And I sure as hell refuse to believe that I have to support alt-right mentality to oppose the SJW mindset. Instead, I support full progressive principles to accomplish that, which equally rejects alt-righters and SJW's as being the flip side of the same same phenomenon as opposed to diametrically opposed ideologies.
