41% of people believe election would be rigged against Trump

If we're ever going to progress as a nation--or a species, even--there's going to have to come a time where things are only believed, especially coming from our politicians, if they're supported by good ole' fashioned verifiable, mind-independent evidence and sound inductive/deductive logic. 

There's 0 basis for believing what 41% of people believe. No evidence. A thing does not become true because one man believes it with all his heart. A thing does not become true simply because your candidate is losing. A thing is only true if logically sound argument can demonstrate it, with supporting evidence.

Trump will lose, and lose badly. But not because anything is rigged against him. It's because he's a crude moron which a penchant for the tu quoque logic fallacy.

But the real problem is almost no one knows what that means. And therein lies the failure of the public school system.

Vote Hilary

An appeal to third party voters:

Vote Hilary, because you don't want the Supreme Court packed with right-wing ideologues for the next forty years.

Vote Hilary because she doesn't think climate change is a lie perpetrated by the Chinese government.

Vote Hilary because you care about what might happen to immigrants and children in war-torn countries if her opponent is elected.

Vote Hilary because her opponent's VP pick, a man a heartbeat away from the presidency, is a creationist hellbent on overturning Roe v. Wade.

Vote Hilary because she has an actual plan for fighting crushing student loan debt.

Vote Hilary because you're concerned about what Trump is hiding in his tax returns.

Vote Hilary because every living former president is voting for Hilary.

Vote Hilary because you don't think sexist jokes are okay.

Vote Hilary because the 2000 Bush/Gore election was decided by less than 1,000 votes in Florida. 

Vote Hilary because you trust the leadership and guidance of Bernie Sanders.

Vote Hilary because among all of the candidates that have any chance of being elected (both of them), her values are the ones that most align with yours.
