1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump FINALLY clarifies remarks about punishing women who get abortions on: Today at 04:28:40 pm
I was under the impressions that all of Trump's "answers" are unbelievable.


We should start a betting pool on how many times he can change his position on abortion between now and the election.

Hillary maybe / Trump obviously not
3  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who will Mitt Romney vote for in November? on: Today at 04:26:27 pm
Mitt Romney. And he'll win Utah. (Which would allow the House to vote for him in the event that the electoral college is undecided...)
4  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How much is Trump willing to spend in the general? on: Today at 04:01:53 pm
Trump will spend as much as he can get people to give him, and not a penny more. (He might loan himself some money, and then repay himself with interest from money his campaign is given though.)
5  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Does this feel a little surreal to anyone else? on: Today at 03:54:14 pm
He's still a joke candidate. He's just a joke candidate who won the nomination.

And yes, it's surreal. The whole last five or ten years seem surreal. Like we're living in a dystopia thriller story or something.
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sen. Warren: Trump built his campaign on racism, sexism and xenophobia on: Today at 03:06:26 pm
Trump is running a campaign of hope. He's giving voice to those who have been ignored for too long.

The KKK?
7  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Post your TRUMP victory maps on: Today at 03:04:35 pm
Trump dies five weeks before the election and his surprisingly mainstream VP candidate wins handily over an indicted Hillary Clinton.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: A moment of reflection on: Today at 02:59:31 pm
Let's also not forget that the GOP's reality TV star nominee's last salvo before cruising to victory was to target his opponent's father with a conspiracy theory, from the National Enquirer, about JFK's assassination.

Anyone still calling themselves a Republican should cower in shame every time they look in the mirror, and anyone actually supporting Trump is a bad citizen and a terrible human being.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sen. Warren: Trump built his campaign on racism, sexism and xenophobia on: Today at 02:54:22 pm
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday attacked Donald Trump's rise to become the presumptive Republican nominee, tweeting that the real estate mogul "built his campaign on racism, sexism and xenophobia."

How much truth is there to this comment ?
Discuss.


Quite a bit, but she left out plain-old fearmongering and appeals to ignorance.
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Don't Count Out Trump At All on: Today at 02:48:27 pm
While I agree that we (and more importantly the Democratic nominee and the DNC) shouldn't consider Trump finished until he's been proper staked, wrapped in garlic, had his mouth stuffed with T-bills, and been buried in solid concrete seventeen feet under a newly constructed cloverleaf he's going into the general in a very poor position.
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: When will Trump announce that his candidacy has been a big joke? on: Today at 02:41:50 pm
The TRUMP candidacy isn't a joke, and it's not even remotely funny now that he's the nominee.

Au contraire. Trump's candidacy has always been a joke. He's demonstrates that its a joke on a regular basis, most recently when offering up JFK conspiracy theories from the National Enquirer as part of the election process. But its some pretty dark and bitter comedy, and the joke is being played on America.

(The punchline is: Republicans and their fellow travelers are such thoughtless hateful tools that they'd vote for a Nazi orangutang as long as it catered to their shallow ignorant prejudices.)
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Where does the #NeverTrump crowd go now? on: Today at 02:35:56 pm
Most of them will vote for Trump, showing us what they really are: Partisan cowards.
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is this the end of the GOP? on: Today at 02:34:54 pm
It deserves to be.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Wherein Trump ruins the political careers of the GOP front bench on: Today at 08:51:15 am
Jeb! the Bush family scion: political career ended by Trump
Rubio the GOP's Great Hispanic Hope: political career ended by Trump
Cruz the darling of the conservative base: presidential ambitions humiliated by Trump

(Walker and Rand also embarrassed themselves, but that wasn't anything to do with Trump)

Really quite impressive.

True, but it's nothing compared to the damage nominee Trump is going to do to the GOP for the forseeable future.

Clinton isn't underestimating Trump though. She and other democratic groups have been running non-stop oppo research, focus groups, and is already reserving huge ad buys in the swing states that will force Trump into worse and more expensive time slots.

The rest of the Republican field decided to be cucks and wait until it was too late to hit back against Trump. She's going to hit him back twice as hard for every blow he throws at her.

This is the conventional campaign memo stuff It didn't work.  Trump isn't running as the boss everybody loves hes running as the asshole boss that gets things done.   Look at all the money they wasted fighting him in the primaries with pretty much everything.  Trump is going to pound jobs jobs jobs NAFTA..  While Hillary attacks eventhough her negatives are just as high.

Friedrich Hayek in The Road to Serfdom : “Hitler did not have to destroy democracy; he merely took advantage of the decay of democracy and at the critical moment obtained the support of many to whom, though they detested Hitler, he yet seemed the only man strong enough to get things done.”

Anyone supporting Trump is an ignorant fool.

Very "Hitler" of you too tell people who they should and shouldnt vote for dont you think?    



Enough with the Hitler nonsense already.  

People can vote for whomever they please. Those voting for Trump are ignorant fools.

Trump is a fascist, and not just in the sense of throwing the word at him as an insult. His campaign has a great deal in common with academic or historical definitions of fascism - the notion of cultural and national decay and rebirth, the hyper-nationalism, the vague populism, the anti-rationality and opposition to intellectual discourse, the cult-like appeal of a Leader, the ready advocacy of political violence, the calls to overthrow existing political order in favor of The Movement, ready xenophobia, obsession with strength, the mish-mash of anti-capitalism with capitalism, intent to limit free speech and rule as a totalitarian - they're all there in the Trump campaign.

It says a lot about us a nation. There's a lot of seething hatred brewing in this country.

Yes. But understand that most of the seething hatred is directed towards politicians who take voters for granted, and continue to fail to get anything done. It's the reason that Trump and Sanders have been doing so well with the electorate. Period.

My personal favorite:
Quote
I voted for Trump with the faint hope that his election would actually be good for the country. If he were elected, it would perhaps teach more to the country than all the high school civics lessons in the our nation’s brief history.

If elected, Trump would accomplish very little to none of his vacuous agenda. His congressional agenda would be as dead on arrival as that of Bernie Sanders’s. So what good could result? Perhaps more people would begin to realize that members of Congress, governors, mayors, and members of the state houses have the real power. That the framers of the Constitution created this wonderfully balanced system in which no one person holds the kind of power that Trump claims he could wield. That democracy is messy and frustrating. That change involves more hard work than just voting for somebody who says the right things.

There are so many people who do not have a voice, who feel democracy has messes. I applaud this man's bravery and his intellect.

Voting for Trump because the current state of affairs isn't working and things need a good kick, is the equivalent of chugging drain cleaner, because you have cancer and need chemotherapy.

Letting self-absorbed clowns like Trump, Carson, and Huckabee on their debate stage.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How ya feeling tonight? on: May 03, 2016, 10:02:52 pm
As appalled as I've been with Trump at times, and despite strong reservations about him, I'm glad that a legitimate populist has emerged as the leader of the Republican Party. Before today, I was leaning Clinton, but now I'm leaning Trump and I expect my support for him to solidify over the coming months.

In dark times like these, I find it lifts my spirits to laugh at jokes. One such joke I keep hearing is how a billionaire NY real estate mogul with a long history of prevarication is a populist.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump hinted in his speech about a politician calling him and offering support on: May 03, 2016, 09:49:57 pm
He said this man sad very nasty things about him but has now decided to get on the trump train. Who do you think this poltician was that trump was referring to?

I think Trump lies a lot.
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Reince admits that Trump is now the nominee on: May 03, 2016, 09:15:28 pm
Coward.  Giving the barbarians the keys to the city.

History will judge them harshly. I only hope it will be with words, and not with firing squads.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump on: May 03, 2016, 09:01:36 pm
Sad Please God don't let him win.

Why not? He is the most liberal GOP nominee since Nixon.

Fascists are liberal.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How ya feeling tonight? on: May 03, 2016, 08:13:41 pm
Alarmed. One of the two main political parties in this country has decided to nominate a candidate for President who is totally disconnected from reality. I think Trump will lose decisively and perhaps in a landslide in November, and that ultimately benefits my party and my preferred candidate, but it is not a good sign for our country that someone like Trump (an anti-intellectual, a demagogue, an individual with clear authoritarian tendencies, a racist, a sexist, a conspiracy theorist, I could go on all night) is this close to becoming the leader of the free world.
