November 9th, 2016, 2 AM EST. All I could think about was lighter fluid. Because I wanted to burn my house down.

This isn't so much because I was a "Triggered Lib." Watching the results come in overnight, two things stood out to me. First, the third-party vote. The ones that came in for candidates who had no chance of winning or even posing any sort of moral victory in an election where the two directions this country was definitely going to head could not have been more polar opposite.

This stood out to me because it felt like the lessons of 2000 were completely forgotten, abandoned after only 16 short years. As a Floridian particularly, because George W. Bush won the presidency by only 537 votes, while 97,421 votes in my state went to Ralph Nader. I cannot help but wonder if just 538 of those 97,421 voters understood the consequences if they would have made the same decision.

There are people who will say "Jill Stein did not cost Hillary Clinton the election, and people are free to vote however they want!" They're not entirely right, but they aren't entirely wrong either. Let's review the numbers in the 2016 swing states that went for Trump.

Trump won Wisconsin by 22,748 votes. Jill Stein got 31,072 votes there.

Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes. Jill Stein got 51,463 votes there.

Trump won Pennsylvania by 44,292 votes. Jill Stein got 49,941 votes there.

The votes absorbed by the third party candidate absolutely swallow the margin of victory in all three. We will never know if these people stand for some of Trump's most controversial of positions, be it on immigration (Stein supports the DREAM Act), marriage equality (Stein supported), Black Lives Matter (Stein supports), climate change (Stein stated was an emergency).

Well maybe we do know where they stand on them, I suppose. And look, these aren't small issues. When I see families being separated at the border, the Affordable Care Act being dismantled, marriage equality under attack, and global climate change being ignored, I can't help but wonder if those people are proud of throwing their votes in a flaming dumpster. Hell, at the time some of my own friends boasted about how proud they would be to tell their children they didn't cast a vote for "the lesser of two evils."

The second, and bigger issue is honestly overall voter turnout.

In 2008, 129,446,839 votes were cast, of which 69,498,516 went to Obama, and 59,948,323 to McCain. 58.2% voter turnout.

In 2012, 126,849,299 votes were cast, of which 65,915,795 went to Obama and 60,933,504 to Romney. 54.9% voter turnout.

In 2016, 128,838,342 votes were cast, of which 62,984,828 went to Trump and 65,853,514 went to Clinton. 55.7% over turnout.

There was a 2.5% decrease in participation in 8 years, and let's acknowledge that even 58.2% participation is nothing to celebrate.

People have got to show up and vote in the first place! And it is vital they cast a ballot for someone who stands an actual chance of winning the election.

It doesn’t make sense to me when people say, “Well I’m voting for a third party candidate so people will take the Independent/Green/Whatever Party seriously.” Jill Stein & Gary Johnson were sh*tty candidates, hell they all are. So isn’t it counter productive to support them arbitrarily? If you wanted people to take the third party seriously why support any garbage nominee they upchuck? It seems to me a better course of action in this situation would be to reject the Independent Party until they produce a candidate that can actually win instead of what amounts to a cheap political marketing campaign of self righteousness and attention whoring from people who’s greatest accomplishments have been getting people to notice they can cry louder than other adults instead of making any meaningful impact in society. These third party asshats no one has ever heard of show up out of the woodwork every four years and pander for attention from voters who want to show how much smarter they are than the rest of us by by being "different."

For a group that makes the case against being a sheep for a major party, it seems to me they aren't in much of a different position than those they accuse. Isn’t it weird how these “independent” people will try to shame Democrats/Republicans for supporting electable candidates by accusing them of mindlessly supporting whoever is on the ticket? It just seems like projection to me. These third party candidates pander to people with the exact same hateful and divisive opportunism as any other candidate would while their supporters squee over how they aren't like other politicians!

Third-party voters are like if those those "You laugh because I'm different, I laugh because you're all the same" shirts grew f**king legs and eyeballs and started setting votes on fire to be unique. There’s no shortage of woke millennial hipsters who voted for Spider-Man, Shrek, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Jill Stein upset by the way immigration and marriage equality is being handled. Good lord.

I’m tired of hearing about the “lesser of two evils." Laying down with your thumb up your ass because you’re a victimist that wants to be sad your nominee sucks too much to be in the general election (and by they way, you'd HATE them for it if they were) and allowing someone who doesn't even represent or promote your ideals to the detriment of tens of millions including yourself to be president does nothing but set any Leftist agenda you pretend to have back 40 years.

Look, I'm a liberal democrat. There are a ton of things I disagree with Joe Biden about, there were certainly things I disagreed with Clinton and Obama about. Voting for first party candidates has nothing to do with being a "sheep." I wouldn't want a politician, or really anyone to agree with me on every stance I have!

I'm glad we have a two party system and not some bullsh*t 16 party nonsense. For all the hipsters that cry about there only being two options, can you imagine if anyone won the presidency with like 8% of the popular vote? Or if just winning California and New York electoral collages and nothing else got you into the White House. What f**king garbage would that be, there'd be even more crying. If people want to give a sh*t about third parties they need to support their candidates all the way to the end but if they are no longer viable make an easy choice and for a candidate that matters in the general election who closest represents your ideals. They don't have to perfectly embody every aspect of your worldview! You are voting for more than a president, you are voting for Supreme Court appointments that will remain for decades. It's not a time to feel self important and different from everyone else. I don't understand why everyone wants their political views completely compartmentalized into a single party anyway. Anyone who identifies entirely with the ideas of a single party while rejecting the entirety of an opposing one is a f**king tool.

In 2016 I had a family member who's Trump sign was stolen from their yard. Mind you, I can't stand the guy. I replaced the stolen sign with two. I donated by own money to Trump because I believe in everyone's right to free speech and expression. It's because I'm not a big baby.

Last week in Texas, a convoy of Trump supporters surrounded a Biden bus in an attempt to run it off the road. Marco Rubio responded saying he "loves what they did" and "we do that in Florida every day."

As a Floridan he does not represent me, and as an American he disgusts me. This sort of violence inciting rhetoric coming from our very own elected officials is completely unacceptable. F**k Marco Rubio.

To that end, regardless of what comes out of this Election, we've GOT to do better as a society. This divisiveness has got to stop. Being the loudest whiner on the internet might be immediately gratifying, but do we REALLY want to be doing this sh*t to each other for the rest of our lives?? Since I've been doing this Get Wrecked thing I've spoken to so many of you from all over the country, you have different political, religious, moral values from one another and me, and I can say you're all cool people. I can't help but remember we're all from the same pack of asshats who try to out-woke one another in Fox News and CNN Facebook posts to absolutely no end. It's f**king lame and needs to stop.

We haven't gotten anywhere but further apart and we'll never get anywhere continuing to do this. I understand the weight of the issues, trust me. I appreciate the passion we ALL have for them. Going the way we've been going is not going to resolve anything. Some of my best friends and coolest people I know in my personal life are Republican Trumpers. We don't bicker at each other, we talk about issues and joke about them and have a good time. Why can't we do that with strangers, as Americans? We're not going to win arguments against each other. It sounds super hippie and lame but honestly we've got to work toward building a culture of understanding and respect within our society. Learn to disagree without all the internet CAPS LOCK shouting and being vulgar to one another IRL.

During Get Wreck's downtime, I thought about what I wanted to do with it, as a brand. As I've mentioned in the past, I want to do more than just sell stuff on the internet. One of the ideas I've had is to connect, and I mean really connect, with the people I've met though it. In 2021 Get Wrecked will be launching a podcast platform titled Civil Discourse, and I want you reading this to be my guest. I want to discuss the things that divide us, not with the goal of winning an argument, but to create a culture of understanding. Let's learn more about the why's of how we view some of the most contentious and controversial issues we all face as Americans without all the whining and droning on. Again, in the name of creating understanding, solely. Even third party voters will be welcome.

Just not those Q-Anon people. Good Lordy. Nope! I can appreciate someone disagreeing with the merits of a tax or health insurance plan, but if the basis of your logic is something about Wayfair/Children/Pizza Place/Sex Dungeon/Whatever you really need to reevaluate some things in your life!

Show each other love ya'll, you're all worth it ✌🏼
