At long last, the Clinton Dynasty will be no more. Finally free of the Clinton and Bushes. We have Trump to thank.

If you're going to choose between two devils, at least pick the devil you know. I despise Hillary Clinton. But the idea of Trump in the White House scares the shit out of me. Honestly, I can't tell if he knows how he comes across - racist, sexist, violent, self-centered, arrogant, and a liar, to name a few - or if he does know and chooses to be anyway. But if I were to base his policy off of his rhetoric, he'd be somewhere along the sliding scale between Saddam Hussein and the Antichrist. Ban on Muslims and border walls aside, the way he responds to criticism via personal attacks, how he's basically threatened opposition for speaking out against him, his absolute disregard for human rights and citizens rights if they get in his way... the man is dangerous.

So come November, I'm going to vote for whoever has the best chance of beating Trump. I'm going to watch the independents carefully and if it seems there's a possibility that a third-party candidate may take my state, I'll put my vote for them. Not that Wyoming really has much of a say in the presidential election but for me the choice comes down to either Clinton, or someone who can beat Clinton and Trump. In short, I'll vote for ANYONE but Trump. I hate Hillary Clinton - she's untrustworthy, but at least she's predictable and won't go completely off the deep end. I can stand her being the president if there is no other choice.

He wants to stop this plan to quickly accept 100,000 Syrian refugees. His ban is more of a "let's slow down and try to not let terrorists in". He isn't concerned about Malaysian Muslims just ones from the Middle East specifically Syria.

Trump wouldn't sell us out. He would sell out the rest of the world for the benefit of the USA.


The wealthiest folks in the US have vested interests in companies that do business all over the world. Even the upper-middle class has an interest in int'l corps via ordinary investments. The side that has more to offer tends to not be the one getting sold out.

Well, maybe Trump is firmly patriotic, and maybe he can outsmart the world's wealthiest - along with their top-tier accountants, consultants, and lawyers... I'm not sure I'd bet the house on it though.


You might find this interesting. 30 years worth of interviews where people ask him about becoming a president.

Oh yeah, I saw this. He's been saying the same thing for 30 years.Trump is at the point where he's so freaked out about our debt that he finally said, "Fine, fuck it, I'll do it."

I think it's important to remember Bernie isn't a Democrat. He is an Independent. He only ran on the Democratic ticket because the Republicans are bat shit crazy. Two party system, you need to be one of the two.

Ultimately it is rather hilarious how conservative Obama and Hilary are. Neither supported LBGT rights until it was publicly popular, both are authoritarians just like republicans, and they both support big business. There are no liberals anywhere in government that have any power besides Bernie.

Obama is the greatest Republican of our generation. He is directly in line with the other greats.

Republicans and Democrats have moved so far to the right Democrats are now the Republicans of forty years ago.

Yep, I called it, folks: It wasn't the skirt that bugged the Republicans for twenty years...
It was the old Clinton grudges, and the fear that that Bill had made the Reagan years Die-Nasty.

(See, they just couldn't understand why people would like a Democratic president for two terms, even after a sex scandal.
They thought he must have used hypnosis on the voters, or the Jedi mind trick, or something, and was unstoppable. And that Obama must have been using Nigerian voodoo on them.)

It's a shame how Bernie sold out his supporters. Say what you will about Ted Cruz; he still sticks to his principles, even when it is hard to do so. He isn't a sell out.

I would have much prefered the nominees be Bernie and Cruz. That would have given the American people a true choice: Socialism vs Constitutionalism. Big strong centralized government or return power back to the states and the people.

It's official. Hillary's favorable/unfavorable rating has finally sunk as low as Trump's. They're both opposed by 3/5 of the country.

Which means that no matter who wins, it'll be someone that's hated by most of the country, just because their only opponent is the same... It's really scary how we got to this point.

He didn't "sell out" his supporters, he became the old rival that decides to buddy up with the hero to get his own beatings in on the villain--
Ah, you & me, pal, just like the old days, it's teamwork!

Which, as Vanellope Von Schweetz pointed out, is being ridiculous and childish to protest.
Turn the Democratic nomination into a grudge match between two fanboy factions when it should be banding together against a common enemy, and, Don Trump-leone says, that Wall just got ten feet higher.

I hate Hillary too, but I ain't selling the entire country out just for that. She's the "better devil I know" from eight years of State experience, and what I don't know about Trump only to find out later, I don't want to know....

There's nothing more inspiring than the underdog story of a wealthy white woman, aided only by her ex-President husband, her dozens of political contacts, a friendly media, the financial backing of both the arms and banking industries and the fixing of a few elections.

I find it ironic that you're calling me out for drinking the Koolaid when that's obviously a gallon jug of bleach you're chugging.

I'm bemused at this election boiling down to people having cat-fights over which pile of shit is more disgusting.

Watching Bernie sell out all his supporters live has to be one of the greatest things I have ever seen.



Hillary knew it was in the bag and didn't even show up to do anything about it. Did she have an important dinner date to do other than to be there to accept her vote and nomination?
