Bailing, a previous poster was right about leftism on this board.

When $ falls everyone will be hit. Those who could foresee it coming and people like you, who have never understood why capitalism leads to prosperity for everyone and why socialism ends in tears every time it is allowed to last long enough.

Not that i say Europe is better but this is not the way any country who claims to be heroic should act.

edit: @Emerson It seems like the bigger the country the bigger illusion of superiority. Heck even Germany today behaves like rest of the Europe are in debt to them. They quickly forgot that Hitler was not german but austrian and details about world wars..

Might feel that way if you're the kind of person who would post the OP.

Assuming that the OP was even meant in earnest, of course. (I think it was meant as trolling).

Trump and Linux don't compute in the same sentence

Anyway, between Trump and Clinton it's really really really hard for me to tell who's worse (I don't live in the US, so I don't have to make up my mind)... I'd say, between a consummate war criminal and a big-mouthed fella, well, go for the big-mouthed one.

Trump sure is a big-mouth, but better than a liar/possible traitor.

... and yet, you all continue to cling to the notion that there are only two candidates qualified to be on the ballot.

In fact, there are four.

This notion of "only two (hand-picked ...) candidates" is actually a very new concept in [American] politics. Throughout most of the actual history of the country, there was a plurality of candidates, and most Presidents (or Senators, Representatives, etc.) were elected under such conditions.

For example, Abraham Lincoln won his first term with 39.8% of the vote, among a stable of four candidates.

Therefore: it is not(!) "merely an either/or choice."

I am active in my local political party of choice and maintain a rather opinionated though quite definitely second-tier blog (which just turned 11, thank you).

I come here for a break, so I refuse to be sucked into this discussion. The only thing I shall say is this: When you cast your vote, vote in the real world. If you don't live in the real world, don't vote.

Must be the onset of Winter coming. On a Biker forum I subscribe to. They are bitching about Bruce Springsteen on a sportster motorcycle in vanity fair.
Somehow politics and name calling kick in because Bruce is not right wing enough for some.

Being a desert creature myself. I cannot relate to all the bitterness and hate that seems to roll around during the onset of winter months from the great white north.

Citation is here.

Uh, you mean his plan to increase it? http://taxfoundation.org/article/det...ump-s-tax-plan

Quote:
According to the Tax Foundation’s Taxes and Growth Model, the plan would significantly reduce marginal tax rates and the cost of capital, which would lead to an 11 percent higher GDP over the long term provided that the tax cut could be appropriately financed.
[...]

Conclusion

Donald Trump’s tax plan would enact a number of tax reforms that would both lower marginal tax rates on workers and significantly reduce the cost of capital. These changes in the incentives to work and invest would greatly increase the U.S. economy’s size in the long run, leading to higher incomes for taxpayers at all income levels. The plan would also be a large tax cut, which would increase the federal government’s deficit by over $10 trillion, both on a static and dynamic basis.
[...]
Finally, it is worth noting that the Taxes and Growth Model does not take into account the fiscal or economic effects of interest on debt. It also does not require budgets to balance over the long term. It also does not account for the potential macroeconomic effects of any spending cuts that may be required to finance the plan.
Note: this is a relatively optimistic analysis of Trump's plan.

Seems like very election you don't get the person you really want. I always have to pick from the lesser of two evils.

I have no idea why Trump would want to be president. Maybe he does love America and wants to help it. Otherwise I don't know.

Can a president really change what Congress does? Only slightly. There is where you find more than a few crooks.

Someone said that in Detroit Chicago and other cities in the 1900's the power was in the hands of crooks that got things done. I'd prefer a crook that got the streets fixed, schools built, and so on over someone that did nothing.

If you are not willing to vote for the lesser of two evils, you shall most certainly get the evil of two lessers.

I understood there are going to be four candidates?

Not being from USA, I'm trying to wrap my mind around the idea of not having a preferential voting sysatem.
