clinton is guaranteed to be terrible. trump might be worse, or he could be sort of okay. i don't think even he knows.

Agreed. Hillary Clinton is the conservative option for people who don't want to admit that they are conservative. Trump is the wild card option for people who are willing to gamble for the possibility of a better future. You know, liberals.

leftists seem like violent bigots, speaking as a centrist.

Donald Trump is basically a republicrat. He is more centrist than any candidate in memory.

That weird Nazi guy with the rapist avatar that u quoted wants to murder you if you won't vote for his conservative candidate, Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump doesn't actually have positions aside from ones that financially benefit him and his family

A functioning middle class financially benefits him and his family. That is his target demographic.

Trump compromising with the democratic members of congress is better than Hillary compromising with the Republican members of congress.

Gary.... has no popular support that he can use to whip congress with and he would accomplish not a single thing besides sitting on his hands to stall the executive.

It's already succeeded actually. Trump conceded Obama was born in America, which after years of arguing he wasn't in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary makes him look, once again, like an idiot who can't stop running his mouth only to have to backpedal soon after. At this point every second statement from trump is an apology or correction. Saying Trump started the birther movement is a bit of an exaggeration, but he was its highest profile member and was the main party behind the long form birth certificate argument after everyone else had given up (and of course years after Obama's long form birth certificate had first been put on public display). More importantly, Trump's birtherism is evidence of his extreme lack of credibility and conspiracy ideation to all but the alex jones fringe. Drawing attention to it is an obvious strategy.

The birther thing was about establishing cred in the conservative media. He voted for Obama. I've seen his records.

Trump strategy all along seems to be to establish cred with the fringe right, simultaneously destroying all credibility with the majority, including mainstream republicans. I know people on both sides of politics want to believe that Trump is actually a master strategist playing the public like a fiddle, but its becoming very apparent he really is just an idiot. People kept saying that once he won the primary he would start appealing to the majority, instead he failed to even visit swing states, has fired multiple campaign managers, following a series of ludicrous blunders he is solely responsible for. Much like his business 'success' his political career is nothing but hot air.

The real humour will come at the end. So far he has drawn enough attention to his finances to assume that his wealth is almost entirely an illusion made up of conning a small group of investors into massive debt through the power of his brand. His campaign will destroy that brand while simultaneously draining his finances severely, leaving him relegated to reality tv and conspiracy radio, still a millionaire but massively reduced such that people no longer confuse his self-importance with actual importance.

The mainstream republicans you're talking about are the real smoke and mirrors. The party spent so much time and effort tricking people into working against their own self interest that they have absolutely 0 credibility with anyone outside the super wealthy. They still control the airwaves, but they don't have the votes anymore. The total ubiquity of the internet has hosed their whole playbook to hell. That's why the Democrats are the new party of the wealthy. They still have credibility to sell. The still have the useful idiots who will eat their scraps and excuse all their most disgusting behavior as no big deal. I'm sick of their poo poo. I'd rather elect a two-bit con artist than a two-thousand-bit con artist, and I will take the possibility of something good happening over the absolute certainty of nothing good happening.

funny how people who were against the W's Iraq war are repeating the exact same rhetoric for even more military adventures in some middle-eastern poo poo-holes

I don't think it's very funny.


I also think that the end game for arming radical Islamic militias and letting them run roughshod over northern Africa is probably pretty messed up.

I think that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are two of the most qualified presidential candidates I've ever seen, for different reasons. The Empire has never been stronger.

I guess what I'm trying to say is , don't think of it as advocating for murdering children. Think of it as an end to outsourcing and a new era of transparency in government.
