One thing people (Americans especially) mistakenly believe is that all people have freedom of speech. Most counties don't, so silencing these people inside their own country is something I'm surprised no one has talked about yet. I remember hearing North Korea shut down its own internet during the hacking scandal a few years back, something like that is the subject being brought up. Not sure how "journalists" twist stories like this.

Some very serious allegations claim it to be true. They actually go way back, and they would make a good couple.

I'm suspicious of the "fact" that Trump woke up one day and became a conservative.

I'm waiting for him to hold a press conference one day where he reveals it was all an act that was part of a new reality TV show.

Hearing this from Hillary is old hat. She was a tacit supporter of SOPA and PIPA.

i normally just use a add blocker for sites that i accidentally come across that i never want to see again. I hope they dont shut down websites that promote terror groups. Make is easier for the FBI to track the low level terrorist that use those sites. Speaking of free speech, my college days are behind me, but have any of you young'ens come across a free speech 'safe zone' on you campus? Do they just rope off an area in the commons? I Just see it on the news all the time now, and wanted to know how they arranged it.

If either of them become president, there's no doubt the next Lee Harvey Oswald will be celebrated as a hero.

You can't ban the internet but you can sniff people out.

That's a little extreme. I know you hate them, but calling for assassination isn't even funny as a joke.

I wouldn't mind it. She doesn't seem to mind stripping freedoms or Benghazi. We could just call it karma.

I'm not calling for assassination. I'm just saying I can see an assassin being cheered in this case. We have one guy who's one step away from invoking Hitler and a woman who's entire career is built on crime and deception. They both advocate for taking away people's rights under the guise of safety. If either of them becomes president, I imagine a lot of people would want them dead.

I suppose. We've had presidents assassinated for less. The again, we've had some rather immoral presidents lead competently (Nixon, JFK, FDR) and some moral presidents who've screwed the pooch (Carter, LBJ). I'm not trying to excuse or defend Hillary, but, historically, there's no guarantee she'll send the country on a one-way ticket to hell, either. Trump would be just plain embarrassing, though.

Not if people are voting for either one. As you gun lovers say, we need stupid/people control.
