Where does this crazy notion that Buddhism isn't a proselytizing religion come from? Buddhism was one of the most aggressively proselytizing religions out there. There's a good reason that Buddhist communities extend from Japan to India.

I didn't know we were in the presence of royalty!

How does one greet the King of Debt? What's his style? Is his succession partible...will we all gain a piece of his debt as a legacy when he passes?

All Hail King Donald, First of his name, by Grace of God King of Debt! Long Live King Donald!

the GOP would have to suspend democracy

The majority of the GOP voted against Trump. So there's no suspension of democracy whatsoever.

Um...~43% of the GOP voting for Trump vs ~27% of the GOP voting for Ted Cruz is a pretty substantial lead over second place. If you think there's no suspension of democracy in allowing a guy with well over 2/5ths of the party who nearly doubled his nearest rival to win, how about the suspension of democracy involved with allowing literally anyone else to win?

Welcoming and hosting dictators in the US, and bringing them into the White House is... problematic.

Um...has there been a president since before FDR who didn't host a dictator at the White House?

Also, having a hostile foreign leader tour the country can be a massive PR coup, whether it was Khrushchev in the 50s or Ahmadinejad in the 00s. It gives the US a chance to show off to a foreign leader's face.

Is he serious?  I thought it's too late for filing election petitions for an indy run

They could optimistically get on the ballot in ~48 states, realistically ~45.

17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Prepare for the Trump/Jefferson Monument on: May 26, 2016, 08:41:29 pm


So...what should this dual Trump/Jefferson monument honoring our 3rd and 45th presidents look like? Suggestions?

EDIT: The image didn't show up so I'll transcribe this actual Trump quote:

Quote from: Donald J. Trump
Build a wall. It's gonna be a big wall. It's gonna be a beautiful wall. Someday, when I'm gonzo, maybe they'll name it after Trump. I'd much rather have a statue in Washington D.C. I don't want a wall named after me but that's OK. I want a statue in Washington D.C! [CHEERS] Maybe share it with Jefferson or something. We're going to build a wall. It's gonna be a big powerful wall.

I don't even think Sanders realizes how badly Trump is playing him for a fool. Remember, never negotiate from weakness and in this scenario, Trump holds all the cards

19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Would Bernie have performed better had he actually competed in the South? on: May 25, 2016, 11:03:21 pm
Remember, campaign time is a zero-sum game. Every moment you spend in one place takes away from others.

Could Bernie have done better in some places in the South? Yes, especially Tennessee and maybe Arkansas, Virginia, Texas, and Florida. Should he have campaigned more in those states? Remember, on Super Tuesday, Bernie lost Massachusetts and on March 15th Bernie lost Illinois and Missouri, and all three of those states were very winnable and, in the case of Massachusetts, was a highly symbolic and demoralizing loss (ditto the other two to the extent that it meant he was shut out on March 15th).

I'm not sure Bernie Sanders would be capable of walking for president four years from now, much less running.

This election is not about Bill anyway.



If this is true, Hillary Clinton needs to stop saying she'll put her husband in charge of the economy. You can't have it both ways.

It's crazy that Corker, who was elected in 2006, is #40 in the "Senate Ranking by Seniority" list. Makes you realize how many Senators we have who are relatively new.

The NeverTrump crowd was always about a few dozen right wing media personalities and retired politicians, and almost none of whom have not backed down from being NeverTrump.

They represent no one outside of their sphere, though.

I don't think we will see the day when Rick Wilson, Liz Mair, William Kristol, Rich Lowry, John Podhoretz, Erick Erickson, Dana Loesch, and the rest of NeverTrump start supporting Trump. The point is that they're utterly irrelevant.
