That seems to be your move. I am capable of fact checking.

Unemployment
2008: 6.5%
2016: 4.9%

Health Insurance
Premiums have dropped since ACA was passed
(IMG:http://healthaffairs.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/Adler_Exhibit1.png)

National Debt
Rose 55% while GWB was in office
Rose 57% while BHO was in office

Poverty Rates
2008: 13.5%
2016: 13.5%

But this is the difference between me and most Trump votes (present company included). While you depend on Facebook memes to make life decisions, I am capable of doing my own fact-checking like the educated adult I am.

the national debt rose nearly 100% under President Obama. Forget it, you are right, I am wrong.

NO YOU DIDNT DONALD. According to Brett05, you didnt COMPETE so you couldnt have won!

(Sorry Im not fancy enough to know how to post the tweet better)

I don't agree with Brett often, but in general, he does have a point. When the road to the white house goes through the electoral college, you are going to come up with your strategy to maximize electorates not necessarily the popular vote. We have no idea what would happen if the election was actually based on popular vote...well I kind of do and I hypothesize it would swing even greater to Hillary, but that is mainly because resources would be spend in large cities and a lot of the country would be forgotten.

That said, we are a republic and as far as I know that hasn't changed so the rules / laws are what they are. Heck, who knows how many people didn't vote in certain states (repub or dem) even in the current case because they knew their vote woulnd't matter.
