As the dust settles, you may be wondering how much is each individual voter's responsibility. Voting usually involves some level of compromise. Let's calmly and respectfully discuss what it means to have voted for your candidate.
Also adding Dimmer's scope:
"This thread is intended to provide a focused space for the discussion about the moral and ethical choices (and consequences) of our votes which is currently overrunning other threads."
Everyone: keep it classy. Tensions are still running high, so please review what you've written before pressing "post."
There has been some discussion in the Presidential Election thread about the moral calculus involved in choosing which candidates to vote for.
Since that thread is now closed, the discussion is spilling over in inappropriate ways to other threads.
This thread is for folks to discuss (and debate) the consequences of our votes. My expectation is that this will be primarily focused on the current US Presidential election, but I think other elections and voting issues are fair game.
