But glad to know a large swathe of America is throwing it's weight behind a xenophobic Oompa Loompa with shitty hair because of pure frankness and charisma and his ability to tell them precisely what they want to hear despite having no credible plans or means of fulfilling any of his promises. We may very well end up installing the least qualified and least deserving candidate for the head of the free world conceivable.


Republicans live their lives wanting to blame somebody (else) for the world's problems, and Trump, being a delusional paranoid, blamed EVERYONE for being against him. And then his supporters believed every word of it, rather than take the easier Occam's-razor route of disputing this frank plain-talker's mental state.

When he claimed that protestors were "a savage bunch sent out by General Bernie, who only understand destruction and violence", all of a sudden, to be a Protestor activist of anything was to be a Neo-Nazi skinhead destroying the country.
When he claimed that people receiving public aid were layabouts giggling over their cleverness in skimming the Treasury, all of a sudden that was license to beat up on any homeless person on the corner who wasn't standing up like a normal person, and tell them the Great Day of The Dope was coming.
When he claimed that Ted Cruz was a "lying bastard" just for being his rival, all of a sudden Ted Cruz becomes "the love child of Joe McCarthy and Dracula", he starts plummeting in the polls, and it's all his fault for not dropping out.

Again, without using the nasty H-word, the Bad Stuff happens not when he says it, but when we're so wishfully gullible enough to make ourselves BELIEVE it.

have fun having to pay a premium price to access certain websites you do on a daily basis. Trump is firmly against net neutrality.


Wow having to pay for stuff I enjoy oh noes next they are going to charge me to buy food at the grocery store I like and go see movies in the theater I like oh wait. Most websites have subscriptions now so this would hardly make a difference to your already weak regressive left threat.

Pros:
- Both major parties will be forced to reform themselves or risk irreparable damage. And that's only if party leaders are even smart enough to realize what the only option is.

Cons:
- We're stuck with a narcissistic authoritarian as our president for at least the next 4 years.
- We'll have a SCOTUS that works against the people and for the government.
- Our presence around the world will make us look worse than we look now (isolated economy and war crimes if Trump, Middle East cease to exist if Hillary).

Overall, America loses no matter who wins the election. We're going to need a miracle to fix this country after the chaos Trump or Hillary plan to cause.


I see no pros to Trump's election, only cons.

Hillary, at least, probably won't get us into a shooting war with Russia.

We must be on different internets then, because most sites I visit run off a mix of ad revenue and donations, or are otherwise commerce sites. But clearly it's a lefty fear to watch the subs of streaming sites rise because ISPs need those extra Trump Bucks.

Now Kasich has dropped out. All 514 of the remaining delegates will go to Trump once those states vote.

Hillary is actually the one who wants war with Russia the most out of all the candidates we've had, with Rubio and Christie coming close behind since they pretty much just mimicked whatever she said. She's going to set up a no-fly-zone in Syria (because she loves how well that worked out for her in Libya) meaning she's going to shoot the Russians, who were invited into the country by the Syrian government themselves. Her delusional statement saying the Russians will agree to essentially give her control of Syria just shows how much she's trying to hide the horrendous consequences her actions will have.

Trump has sent some mixed messages about Putin before, but he's been surprisingly consistent in wanting to leave Russia alone in Syria. It's perhaps the only sane thing he's said in his life. Hillary is more likely to get us into war with Russia. Trump is more likely to isolate our country with his insane economic ideas and the fact that our own allies hate him. Trump's so-called "policies" are seriously a copy of how the North Korean government operates. Either way, we all lose.

Hillary wants to shoot down Russian planes to maintain a "no fly zone" over Syria and Iraq. Trump sees Russia bombing our enemy and he says "let them keep bombing them, want targets?"

Trump believes that being US president on the world stage literally means you can help make countries fight each other like action figures.

For example, since he believes nagging countries about their trade deficit will obligate Mexico to pay for the Wall, he also believes that pushing embargoes and trade deficits will, quote, "force" China into fighting North Korea themselves as a repaid favor to us.

If there was ever a comment in political history that more RICHLY deserved the "Oh, really? Tell us more about how you're going to do it. " Willy Wonka meme...

The Trump Plan Will Achieve The Following Goals:

1) Bring China to the bargaining table by immediately declaring it a currency manipulator.
2) Protect American ingenuity and investment by forcing China to uphold intellectual property laws and stop their unfair and unlawful practice of forcing U.S. companies to share proprietary technology with Chinese competitors as a condition of entry to China’s market.
3) Reclaim millions of American jobs and reviving American manufacturing by putting an end to China’s illegal export subsidies and lax labor and environmental standards. No more sweatshops or pollution havens stealing jobs from American workers.
4) Strengthen our negotiating position by lowering our corporate tax rate to keep American companies and jobs here at home, attacking our debt and deficit so China cannot use financial blackmail against us, and bolstering the U.S. military presence in the East and South China Seas to discourage Chinese adventurism.

So you mean he is going to call China out as being a trade manipulator and do something about it? Well good!

Also the reason NK exists is because of China, they need to keep their beast under control since they won't let us touch them. Heck NK has even threatened to drag China into a war if it didn't accept NK's demands.

Actually, the Trump plan is this: Trump says these people are bad people, therefore they will magically do what Trump says just because he says so.

It'd "achieve" something alright. But nothing actually on that list.

Trump's China policy is highly disputed, and while I think many people agree that progress needs to be made with the Chinese market, Trump's plan is unlikely to have the large scale positive effects he expects. Even the idea that China is a currency manipulator in the first place is disputed, and when it comes down the the details of it, it is disputed even more. As usual, this seems like an example of Trump seeing an issue that should be dealt with by stepping lightly and working smart and simply deciding to bring in a sledgehammer and hope fucking everything up will make it better.

Tonight was historic indeed.



Loomy knows what's up.








And that is why Trump is going to win.


The American People have finally awoke to just how shameless and harmful the lies of the Left are, and instead of bowing before our Politically Correct overlords have decided to Make America Great Again.

Thanks for electing Hillary, morons. You just assured it; the media have just pulled the greatest con-job on all of you and you're too hopped up on adrenaline to see it until it'll be too late to realize you were just tricked into backing a Crony Capitalist buffoon with more skeletons in his closet than an ancient crypt.

Seriously, you just saw the media help push a LIE against Cruz and his family (seriously, a story in the National Enquirer...?) and not a single one called him out on it. And you have the gall to tell me he's a great man and a great candidate? Don't make me laugh at your stupidity!

If you think Trump is a champion of the people, I can tell you the location the Ark of the Covenant.

So, if you think we're just going to "hop back on" to your one-way train to hell, you can be the imbeciles explaining how you doomed America to no longer be free to your children and grandchildren. I - and others -will not be part of your stupidity, the price of which is a weight in blood and suffering I wouldn't envy on my worst enemies.

On the plus side, the primaries exposed just how many in America are Judases and liars.

#NeverTrump!




The same petty jealousies and acrimony which the Never Trump troglodytes preach is the same dark energies powering the Hillary campaign. Vote for her, if you like, but dont blame anyone else but yourselves for creating the environment perfect for her.

At this point Trump and Hillary are already the party nominees. Trump's only competition now is Kasich, who will need to win more delegates than Trump in all the remaining states in order to stop him, which is impossible. Bernie is in the same boat. He would need to win in a major landslide, probably with at least a 50% margin, in every remaining state to get the nomination. Hillary on the other hand doesn't even need to campaign anymore. She can lose 40-60 in every state and she'd still have enough delegates to win. 2016 is the election where our two choices are a guy hungry for attention and a woman hungry for power.

If Trump wins(unlikely), the republicans will be ruined and will most likely never win the White House again for decades. It's not even safe to assume all his dangerous policies will be blocked by Congress thanks to Obama's precedent of "my executive orders are absolute blah blah blah deal with it." Our reputation abroad has already taken a massive drop thanks to Trump. If our enemies don't take us seriously now, they definitely won't change their minds if even our own allies oppose our new leader. If Hillary wins, the democrats will also fall apart thanks to the DNC rigging the game to give Hillary a ridiculously huge advantage and proving to everyone that the establishment will use any dirty trick to give their precious queen more power. No matter which of them wins, the Supreme Court will no doubt move towards a more authoritarian direction since nearly half of the SCOTUS will most likely be replaced within the next 8 years. In other words the Constitution is dead for an entire generation.

The pros and cons of this election season:

Pros:
- Both major parties will be forced to reform themselves or risk irreparable damage. And that's only if party leaders are even smart enough to realize what the only option is.

Cons:

If Trump wins it will be proof that the American people have decided to take back their republic.

How fitting that it is therefore a Republican who is the candidate for this revolution.
