Only a fool and the mass American sheeple think there is any difference between Trump & Hilary

The entire system is gamed. They're just a figure head. Hilary is right on many issues and Trump is left on many too.

Personally I think Trump will win and will turn into a popular figure like Regan v2. Hilary has dug a massive hole for herself (she's part of the elite, email scandals, Benghazi, charging $M for speeches to Wall St) and in polls Trump has just crossed over her approval rating.

 

I agree Clinton is flawed....but I'd put that down to having voted for the invasion of Iraq. Big mistake. One that Sanders didn't make. 

 

As for the email server.....it's a bogus issue. Compared to what Bush and Cheney were up to playing fast and loose with classified document - and got away with - Clinton looks like saint.

 

Benghazi? The Republican Congress cut funding for security at embassies...then blames Clinton. In any case, there is no way of knowing if anything might have been done to avoid / stop a large-scale attack by local militants.  But maybe if Bush hadn't lied about WMD several hundred thousand people might still be alive.....including over 4,500 American soldiers. But the Republicans give their own major war criminals a free pass. 

 

Charging for speeches? All major public figures charge for speeches. This is utterly normal. 

 

All these issues are extremely weak tea imagined into importance by cynical Republicans.....who ignore the monstrous crimes their own leaders ACTUALLY committed.

 

As for Trump...if he becomes President it will be sign for the rest of the world that the United States has achieved "Idiocracy" (see the movie if you haven't) 500 years ahead of schedule.

Yeah, but that's the point... they *did* get away with it. I guess the Democrats' mud-slinging department isn't up to scratch. And/or the Republican teflon-coating is effective.

 

It's as much about the Party sales & marketing as it is about the candidate and what they do.

It's most about getting people to turn out and vote for you it appears, more than any policy selling mud slinging and name calling.

What's bogus about it is that if she wasn't rich, she'd be in jail for it.

By the standards of over 99% of the population, he's rich. Even by the most pessimistic estimates.

 

Even if you're bankrupt, you're rich if you live in a penthouse and fly round in a Learjet.

Stephen Hawking: Donald Trump Appeals to 'Lowest Common Denominator'

 

 

LONDON — Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking said Tuesday that the popularity of Donald Trump is beyond even his understanding.

The author of "A Brief History of Time" was asked in an interview whether his knowledge of the universe meant he could explain the presumptive Republican nominee's appeal.

"I can't," Hawking replied. "He is a demagogue who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator."

My prediction. Hilary gets indicted for email server stuff. Biden gets parachuted in to try to save.

 

Not Sanders?

 Donald Drumpf is the ultimate tail-risk candidate.

 

 

from the above...

 

"Donald Trump, on the other hand, is a wild card.
Who the hell knows what he would do if elected?
I put some of the possibilities on this helpful chart:

Donald Trump has 'fascinating parallels' with Caligula, says historian

"He has not yet made a horse his running mate, but Donald Trump can be compared to one of the most notorious of all Roman emperors, Caligula, according to best-selling historian Tom Holland.

"Holland told the Hay festival there were fascinating parallels between the actions and success of Trump and what was going on in Rome 2,000 years ago.

"Caligula has gone down in history as one of the maddest and baddest of all Roman emperors, a name synonymous with the worst excesses of absolute power."

And Hillary gets the nomination over Bernie. I have no great love for the woman, but she's the lesser of two evils when it comes to her and Trumpy.
