    is a Precious Snowflake Voter™. They threaten to withhold their vote for a Democrat if they do/don't something-something. Every. Single. Day.

    I have a hunch they would be much happier with a President Jill Stein.

    There was only one joker in L.A. sensitive enough to wear that scent...and I had to find out who he was!

      The Precious Snowflake Voters™ are uncomfortable with the idea that their vote isn't worth any more than the guy next door's. So, they threaten to withhold votes because they think it will make their vote more valuable.

      I expect the roads to be plowed.  I expect the goods to get delivered.  I expect results.  You deliver for me and I deliver for you.  You don't, and we'll find someone who knows how to plow snow (I realize this concept is unknown around the nation's capital.  Perhaps, if they started with snow they could work up to legislation.)

      I vote to be represented.  Yes, I know, an archaic concept.  I'm supposed to believe that voting is now a protection racket.  You don't win my vote, you don't earn my vote, you extort my vote.  You say vote for me or the other guy will kill you but I'll only rough you up a bit if you don't fall in line.
