    All well said and meaningless. Barring some sort of miracle, the choice is going to come down to Clinton or Trump. Regardless of how p*** poor a choice it is these are the only two real choices. Everything else is a non-vote for all practical purposes. I have also considered writing in a candidate, but in the end that is nothing more than the morally timid choice. If it comes down to, and it looks as if it will be, a choice between Clinton and Trump I have to go with the one that is closer to my beliefs and the one I have to believe will do the better job, or in this case, the lease harm. For me that choice is Trump...not that I like it one bit.

    Such a waste of time...
    lodestar does not zee 'babble' do.
    lodestar does not zee 'waste of time' do.

    I outlined a overriding reason why all anti-progressive or just simply patriotic or conservative or right-of-center or reactionary or libertarian or paranoid or xenophobic or delusional or contrary or anti-PC or just so fed up and mad as hell on Post #68!

    A cripped summary is below AGAIN!!!
    THIS TIME PAY ATTENTION!!:

    Could ‘Death or Glory' Trump be a long overdue tonic for moribund US politics?


    It has become clear that Trump and Trumpism is not going to vanish in the short term and he has actually tapped into a vein of genuinely felt or at least perceived (that does not necessarily make it real) resentment/ anger / frustration/ unease amongst a sizeable bloc of voters.

    It’s targeting some issues people may have with some ‘groups’ (and no, having issues discussed is not the same as racism or sexism per se), modern social and cultural developments, economics and of course the loathed Washington politic ‘system’ and status quo.

    He won’t be president, at least not this time around.
    He may not even end up running as a GOP candidate but he sure as hell has become a major lightning rod

    I don’t think he care if he loses big-time and I’m sure he doesn’t care who he hurts or what (the GOP structurally with any luck!) he damages or forces to change along the way - that’s the ‘Death or Glory’ approach he’s taking.
    I declare him a positive development in the overall scheme of things and in an indirect way,
    a force for good.


    He is in short a refreshing circuit breaker and great disrupter of the status quo – Good luck to him and his cause (Trumpism).

    Seriously though, he won't win but vote for him anyway. He's done the country a great service in his own way.

    As one commentator said just today in an Australian national daily:
    "The Big truth that is being exposed by this battle between Trump and the establishment is that the Republicans are really two parties and they can no longer stand each other's company."

    The GOP should do America a big favor and fracture into two separate entities essentially helping dismantle the two hundred year old two party geriatric paradigm which is now-days a millstone around the politics of the USA.
    To win elections the two parties can grit their teeth and work in coalition.
    Just like some many other parties in so many countries allover the world

    But a walking, talking disaster of a Sec of State, is ok?

    No I did not say that. I said that I was quoting from an “opinion piece” and I said “I think” that Trump was running a different sort of CON game and I said in another place that “I have always thought” so to my way of thinking, i.e., in my opinion, I was saying that when I think something that it is my opinion. Does “I think” mean something different in the UK? Does it mean a definite fact?

    Nice .

    Well, not nice .

    You must be a Soros fan .

    Such people exist .
    So journalists are uninformed and you are informed. How can you afford to feed such a big ego day in and day out.

    Dig a little deeper if you well and you'll find it isn't coming from the left or right questioning his foreign policy, it comes from across the political board both GOP and Dem.

    Trump's positives-
    We bitch about the establishment all the time but we never seem to be able to do anything about it. Voting for Trump would put a fork in their eyes like nothing else could.

    Political Correctness is .... I'll let George Carlin explain it-



    Boom, there it is.
    What you are tempted to call "mean" is the sound of someone speaking his mind. Enjoy it, you won't be hearing it from anyone else in this election.


    He was the first to put a strong foot forward on illegal immigration, and he has a plan for dealing with it.

    He knows how the financial/business/economic world actually works. When was the last time we had a President that was anything besides a career Politician?
    He has had to balance the books, instead of make excuses and simply ordering all of us to pay him more money, he has had to face the penalties for failure.

    He also knows how to protect copyrights, something we need very badly. Instead of avoiding China and Putin, he will confront them to protect our inventions and products.
    Something that has been a long time coming, BTW.



    And lastly, he does not have 1,000 contributors that will need to be taken care of from the moment he walks into the Oval Office.

    How's that for starters?
    My bold.

    What plan does he have that is remotely realistic? ZERO!

    He is going to bring jobs back to the US? Which jobs and how?

    He is going to place high tariffs on products made in China. Bye, Bye Wal Mart and when the cost of those tariffs get passed down to the American consumer then what? That t shirt in Wal Mart that cost $5 now cost $15 or more. Will you pay the difference with a smile on your face, assuming you have ever had one.

    He is going to build the Great Wall of Trump. Fine. With what money? How his he going to come up with the cost of maintaining such a wall and more importantly the man power to man it 24/7. As he said any of that? NO, just words that his condumb followers want to hear.
