Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Turnout was not low.  Please quit spreading misinformation.

Clinton had the second highest vote count in our history.  She may have exceeded Obama had we not allowed widespread voter suppression to go unchecked.  The voting rights act was gutted in 2013 and the estimates of how much impact that had vary, but it's safe to say it most likely impacted the outcome with the razor thin margins that tipped the electoral college. Only 77k spread across three states with active suppression in the cities of those states.

If you care about solving actual problems, the don't peddle narratives that the actual facts contradict.

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
