In a stunning win for corporations and the Koch Brothers the constitution, environment, your drinking water, the middle class and the poor were soundly trounced by voter apathy and threats of Ebola-ridden Mexican children who love ISIS. As expected younger voters stayed home in record numbers, with an estimated 25% turnout, although turn out for this demographic was nearly 100% as they responded to funny memes on Twitter and to a great sale on sweaters at the gap-also and then there was that killer DJ at that club. Thankfully turn out by their grandparents and middle class voters passionately voting against their interests realized that 1 person with Ebola and immigrant kids on the border 2000 miles away were the leading issues. The environment, now bracing for an assault by the XL Keystone pipeline and fracking wells on every block could not be reached for comment. The constitution is said to have fled to Europe, remarking at the border that, corporations are people? “And you just voted for people to give them a huge tax break on top of the subsidies and tax loopholes they also get? No, you abandoned me.” R.I.P. middleclass, your fear vote is the same as suicide..
