I don't support Trump, but Hillary shot herself in the foot with the deplorable comment(even though she's right) and the episode on 9/11 with the pneumonia. Most people aren't going to pay one damn attention to Obama anyway at this point.

I seriously wish it was 2017 already.


But...I'm also afraid of how the country could be, depending on who wins. For all anyone knows, CR might not even be no more because of some stupid thing that Hillary/Trump did.

The insult would be if you were to not vote on the wrongful claim that your vote does not matter, but yeah, sure, wrap it up that way. Heil Trump! Heil Trump! Heil Trump!

That's the issue, here--There's so much anti-Hillary sentiment to say "The Democrats are self-centered poopieheads TOO!", that it's easy to forget that in '08, Obama's election was about the grass-roots sentiment of the people uniting to take the country back from Dubya.
Love or hate Hillary, we're lucky we only have a rival candidate to express our average-citizen faith in the Constitution enough to take the country back from, before he's even had the chance to ruin anything.

(And seriously--I was watching CNN's "The Seventies" last night, and it's scary just how much of Nixon's Watergate-era hyperdefensive paranoia Trump already instinctively has down pat, to the fifth-decimal place.
The only difference is that we actually had confidence in Nixon's professional competence back in 1972, since he'd been so successful with China, Russia, the ecology and the draft.
You want to wait four years to take the country back from that, go ahead, but I remember waiting six years just for an impeachment vote.)

Because running as a democrat is somehow enough to forgive someone who supported her husband's drug laws that disproportionately targets black people and ruins their lives over non-violent crimes... Hillary is really praying that black people are as clueless about the internet as she is. Thankfully the younger generation is smart enough to realize how bad both major candidates are. Too bad the number of voters who get all their news from Fox and CNN still outnumber millennial voters.

i think Gary Johnson could be a more qualified candidate, even though i don't agree with him on a few things such as the TPP, and the fact he thinks Climate Change is a hoax, despite science proving otherwise. on the plus side, he's experienced with working with both parties, so he'll probably be able to work with Congress. Trump will probably have a lot of opposition by Democrats in Senate / Congress if he got elected.

i like Jill Stein's stance on increasing investments in clean energy and the fact she doesn't support the tpp, but her view on enforcing tax for the elite 1% will just not work (best case) or backfire (worst case).


I don't know where you heard that Gary Johnson believes climate change is a hoax. He's acknowledged that it's man made. Other than that your summary is pretty accurate. He's the only candidate who has a successful political career getting democrats and republicans to work together. Hillary will just act like a queen and tell the republicans to go f themselves. Trump's entire platform (or at least what little is known about it) goes against what democrats are working for so there's no chance they would see eye to eye either.

That's your take away from his speech? Or are we just playing "I only read the headline" again? -.-

As for third party; I wish. But Johnson and Stein are both idiots so it wouldn't really elevate the quality level much this election.


Can you explain what Johnson has said that makes him an idiot? He's the only candidate that actually wants to discuss policy. Without him on the debate stage, all you'll see is a shouting match between two little kids. Having someone on stage who actually wants to talk about solutions for foreign policy, immigration, criminal justice, etc. will definitely elevate the quality of the election. Both of the two major candidates have been trying their best to hide their policies. Their only arguments are "vote for me to stop that racist fear monger from building a wall" and "vote for me to keep that criminal out of office." Johnson is practically Einstein compared to the talking cheeto and he's a saint compared to the female Pinocchio. His biggest fault is that he doesn't know how to lie and pander, which is apparently necessary to become president these days. Also, unlike Hillary's shameful pandering, Johnson actually cares about helping the African American community by getting rid of these harmful drug laws that easily ruin their futures.

And before anyone responds by mentioning Aleppo, keep in mind that he was asked about a random city in Syria in a discussion about his chances of winning right after he spoke about how he could appeal to voters and brought up gay rights. Having someone ask him "but what about a LEPPOW" not only completely changed the context of that discussion without warning, the guy was talking about a conflict using a name that nobody ever refers it to. Even so, Johnson didn't blame the guy for the obvious gotcha question. Instead he completely took responsibility for that guy and said it was his mistake for not realizing what he was being asked. If this was any other politician, they would've just played along and pretended they knew the question while talking about something completely different to dance around the topic. Plus, Johnson really did answer the question once he was told that the question was about Syria and the very next day John Kerry pretty much did exactly what Johnson spoke about. The media just tries to pretend that he never answered the question.

Although I agree with you on Jill Stein. She seems a little nutty and acts like she's at a college party all the time. I don't even think she's taking this election seriously.

hopefully this time it works >_<''

for some reason, CR refuses to upload images. i'd post a screenshot, but since CR refuses to work (as often is the case), there's a site which shows his views on climate change:
https://www.isidewith.com/candidate-guide/gary-johnson/environmental/climate-change-3
apparently he thinks Climate Change is not a big issue, and nothing needs to be done about it. unless he answered "no" by mistake, which doesn't seem likely.

(sorry if i sound annoyed, CR is refusing to work for me. it's as if CR is being targeted by DDOS or something)

That question was only about increasing regulations, but I can see why it would sound misleading. I think it would be more accurate to ask whether or not the government should be involved in environmental regulations. In which case, his answer would be yes but only if that involvement is minimal. He does support the EPA after all, as long as they're doing their job effectively. He just doesn't want the government to actively choose which businesses survive and which ones fall, which is pretty much a Libertarian position in general. That was basically a TL;DR version of his views on the environment on his website and I don't see anything that contradicts this. He's been consistent for years, which is more than I can say about either major candidate on any issue.

I don't see why anyone should hold this against him though. Climate change isn't really a top issue for any candidate other than Jill Stein.

Although back to the topic of Hillary, I'm sure she'll continue some of Obama's policies for better or worse. Whether that's on progress with African Americans or the environment, I have no clue. She'll say anything to get elected and shifted her platform further to the left during the primaries to appeal to Bernie supporters, even though much of that was just lip service.

Btw, CR was acting strange for me too. I had some trouble getting my previous post through and then I couldn't access the forums at all for a while. CR was having some server issues earlier.

Aleppo isn't just some random city no one talks about and its not exactly a reassuring presidential quality if you can get knocked into total bafflement by a topic change. Plus his comment on the NY bombing didn't help the impression that he's a flake. I applaud his honesty in owning up to his gaffes but he's still pretty flakey. He reminds me of the stoners I went to high school with but 40 years later.

Policy wise he has some stances palatable to the left and the right. But its also mixed in with more out there libertarian ideas like fair tax and blowing up the department of education. Plus he's big on school vouchers and other such nonsense with a bent towards privatization.

Also, he's veto happy as shit. -.-

As for being the only candidate that wants to discuss policy thats more on you for not listening than candidates not talking. Though I'll grant you that one on Trump. As Trump's preferred topic is always Trump.

I have no idea what Stein thinks she's doing. She strikes me as the sort of person that will champion a cause she read about on Facebook this morning and tell anyone unluckily enough to make eye contact with her on the bus about it.
