Should we?

So, there was this thing where the pollsters were shocked, bamboozled, gobsmacked even - much as I was - that President-elect Trump won. Not surprising to thinking people, but surprising to many, was the inaccuracy of the polls. Turns out, lots of people don't like talking to pollsters about their personal decisions....shocking.

No, I didn't vote for him, I voted for Johnson/Weld. Primarily because I thought he was an asshole and I don't vote for assholes (intentionally). Still, I may have been wrong. The asshole thing might have been an act for free media. Regardless, President-elect Trump is our President-elect and the way the USA-democratic-republic-thing works is that we accept that and move-the-F*! on. Usually, we are the best in the world at it.

But I digress...back to the pollsters. See the issue is that many of us don't like to be polled. We like to keep our opinions to ourselves, mostly, and we're still figuring out this whole social-media-thing. We don't really like to speak out here because social media can complicate the...you get it...out of real life. So, for example, when something completely insanely stupid like the yescalifornia.org thing pops up, we keep our mouth shut. Usually. Should we?
