So, if there is a "god" and "he" intelligently designed us, why the hell do we treat each other so poorly?  Sure...

It has really bugged me that so many people on TV and IRL (in real life) have so quickly accepted Trump as...

If you agree with this comic, please sign this petition ASAP:

https://www.change.org/p/electoral-college-electors-electoral-college-make-hillary-clinton-president-on-december-19

Then, tell your friends, co-workers, family, pets, strangers on the street, tell everyone to sign this thing, too.  We can pressure the electoral college into doing the right thing.  For an explanation of why, keep reading.

This is kinda serious, folks.  This is clearly a case of the popular vote being the smart folks who know what's best.  The last time it happened, Bush got us in a LOT of trouble (and it was obvious from the beginning that he would likely get us in that trouble).  The popular vote represented the right direction to go in.  Gore was not about to invade two countries and tank the economy.  He was going to continue the Clinton years which were some of America's most prosperous.

Likewise, Hillary Clinton would likely carry over many of Obama's policies and help keep the last 8 years of recovery on track.  And like with Bush, it's obvious that Trump will get us into more trouble.  And once again, clearly, the popular vote represents the best choice for America.

So, please sign that petition so we can stop this from happening again.  Sure, America can take it, but who knows how many people will die this time?  When Bush lost the popular vote but got into office anyway, he waged two wars that saw hundreds of thousands of people die.

In a sense, it's like we've traveled back in time with the knowledge of what will happen if the popular vote is ignored and a person who is clearly not fit to hold the office of the president is allowed to do so.  Don't take this sitting down.  We can change things this time.

When I woke up, the morning of November 9th, the first thing I did was check my smart watch to see a breaking news notification pop-up and inform me that "President Obama has called Donald Trump to congratulate him on his victory."

My stomach dropped and I immediate felt like I'd woken into a nightmare.  Hence, my portmanteaux (mashup) resulting in the word "Nightmarica".  At some point after that I realized that this would be a nightmare we'd not be waking from for a while.

The good news is that there is this petition you can sign that calls for the Electoral College to vote for Hillary Clinton since she did win the popular vote and Trump is anything but qualified to hold the office of the president.  This is ironic since the original idea behind the Electoral College was to prevent "the tyranny of the masses" (or something similar) from electing someone unqualified to hold the office of the president.  So this petition is simply a call to the EC to honor their original reason for existing.

Here's a link to that petition:

https://www.change.org/p/electoral-college-electors-electoral-college-make-hillary-clinton-president-on-december-19

It's currently just past 4 million votes.  Please go sign it.  Hopefully, the Trump Regime won't use it when they start to round up dissenters.  >_<

By some sort of error within Blogger, this strip did not post when it should have.  It sat in my queue as a draft for some reason.  Regardless, I am glad it did since it ultimately relied on data that was utterly, completely incomplete and misleading.  If anyone should suffer for what happened on November 8, 2016, it's the polling industry.  They pretended their numbers were somehow accurate and indicative of how Americans would vote and yet it went the other way.

Read on if you want to read my original commentary for this strip.  It's still accurate, but the poll numbers I reference, obviously, weren't.
