    I'm actually glad for the Republican party this time around. They actually look like they are going to pick a good candidate for POTUS this time. They've disavowed the non-sense about money tricking down because you gave it to the top income earners and the non-sense about going to elective wars in other countries and the need for money overrunning our elections.

    So what you're saying is "Hillary for president." I like to make sure I don't lose anything in the interpretation.

    Donald J. Trump for president. Hillary won't beat him. If Trump gets the nomination he will win against Hillary Clinton.

    Donald Trump is a sick man. His dementia becomes more evident every day. He truly believes he gets along well with everyone, yet he is amongst the most nasty, vitriolic people ever to open his mouth in public. He has no business in politics.

    I really dislike Donald Trump. With that said, I genuinely think he has a good chance of doing well in the elections, simply because, whilst many people dislike him, there's plenty of people who would support him. I also think there's a fairly decent chance the opposition vote could be split against him.

    With that said, I really hope he doesn't win.

    Hillary is a career politician, not suffering from dementia, who knows how to engage other people.

    When one takes emotion out of this and looks at pragmatically, Hillary will smoke Trump in the General. Republicans are fully aware of this and if it goes to the convention it could very well be brokered. It will take Rubio, Cruz or another candidate with experience and policy behind them to put up a realistic challenge. I get those of you enjoying this lunatic while in your little bubble but mainstream America thinks he's a clownish buffoon.

    Donald Trump's popularity is an excellent case study into the widespread prevalence of ignorance, illiteracy, anti-intellectualism, misogyny, bigotry, and xenophobia that's rampant in this country.

    Trump is the best candidate. You guys are focused on words and not actions. The bottom line is that we need to be honest about the fact that republicans and democrats in congress haven't had the best interests of the American people. The longer you are in politics the more favors you owe people. The only thing these people have done successfully is make sure the already well off and well connected continue to get/stay ahead of everyone else regardless of their qualifications and capabilities as individuals. Sure they smile to their bases but behind our backs they all are of the same mind.

    They want immigration killing wages and jobs in America so the speculation class can continue to stay rich. They want to maintain an unequal playing field across races and classes and other "minority" groups. Money matters more than ideas.

    Donald Trump is proving that a campaign can function successfully without hundreds of millions of dollars spent. The #1 problem that America faces is money in politics. Get money out of politics and everyone benefits.

    Congress should be people of varying backgrounds coming in to run the country for a couple of terms then it's someone else's turn. It shouldn't be a bunch of people who don't represent American interests as a whole getting in during the 1970's and 80's and still running things in 2015.

    Why do you have non technical people creating policy on technology issues such as that CISA bill that just passed buried in another bill to escape the public?

    Keep telling yourself that. The truth is Trump's popularity is a case study in people who think they know better than everyone else choosing to ignore the needs of the country as a whole.

    Shoulda woulda coulda. The American people voted for those schmucks and continue to buy into their brainwashing about donkeys vs elephants. "People get the government they deserve", and America is a prime example of it. A rich narcissistic blowhard isn't going to change that.

    And you think captain call up bill gates to "close up the internet" is the answer? lmao!

    You wish that were the case. The reality is that many of Trump supporters probably can't even do 10th grade precalculus and have an uncle that's also their brother.

    Trump has shown exactly ZERO knowledge of how anything related to our government functions. He is completely clueless and without being handed a multi-billion dollar real estate empire from daddy he'd probably be vacuuming the floors in a starbucks somewhere.

    I think his popularity says alot about this country and how they want out of the social, PC and race damaged country the Obama movement has created.

    I don't see Hillary having a chance. When election day comes, the uninformed and blurred by media will support her but educated Democrats will not, they know she cannot be trusted. Further, there is no mass movement behind her like there was with Obama. Like or hate Obama, you have to give him credit for creating such a movement to get people to vote.....which is exactly what the Don is doing.

    I definitely agree that we've gone overly PC but to say Obama created that (or race damaged, that's just laughable) is disingenuous. How could any one president create such social change? It's giving him far too much credit just to fit your narrative here. A movement takes the masses, the 99%, tea party, black lives matter, etc are all products of social change by the people.

    The "Obama movement" hasn't created any of this.

    The widespread prevalence of social media and the 24 hour cable entertainment news cycle has. The overly-PC culture has been created by these two main factors. Millions of people bitch and whine on social media about every little thing, and leaders of companies, organizations, etc. have to coddle people and be overly politically correct to appease the social justice warrior clowns so they don't "offend" anyone because they're worried about hurting their brand's image and bottom line because of bad press on social media/cable entertainment networks.

    His response was that he just took advantage of a system that was legal. His supporters love that about him, but when someone is on welfare for food, they freak out. Funny how that is.

    afaik there were 4 restructuring deals on his companies, and he even put money out of his pocket to keep the business running, none went belly up.
