Sorry, Dems and Pundits, but Hillary was only a small part of my decision in 2016

I am looking at the Guardian and seeing headlines such as:

Hopes of mild climate change dashed by new research 

Bad news for climate contrarians – 'the best data we have' just got hotter 

'We're doomed': Mayer Hillman on the climate reality no one else will dare mention

Despite headlines like these, this topic was pretty much absent from the Presidential debates. Hillary Clinton put up a statement about this issue on her website, but that was negated by this exchange between her and a Greenpeace volunteer:
Quite frankly, the only candidate who was addressing the issues that concerned me (the environment, election reform, etc) was Jill Stein.

Hillary seemed to be running on the fact that she was a woman and wasn't Donald Trump. Let's toss in that the primary election and selection of the Democratic candidate has been shown to be a farce.

The US political system is broken, but it won't get fixed by supporting the two party system. Also, it won't get fixed as long as people are in denial (RUSSSIANS!). Two of the worst presidents have gained office through the electoral college. Do we need to end up with a real idiot as president for people to see change is necessary?
