    He loves the TPP in its current form, which adds another surprising factor into the surprise popularity for younger voters. Thankfully, as we know and hear about time and time again, all millennials do is play video games and demand entry level jobs having VP salaries.

    There are plenty of VP's that should be fired for ruining a corporation.

    I really think environmentalism is getting down in the weeds and losing the plot.

    I blame Al Gore, because his Inconvenient ******** has really hurt, and politicized environmentalism.

    Take global warming out of the equation. Take "Climate Change" out as well.

    Ask anyone, and I do mean anyone, if drinking water should be flammable, and universally the answer is no.

    Ask anyone is air should be full of soot and cause black lung, and universally the answer is no.

    Ask anyone if they want to stick their face in a car exhaust and take a deep breath, and anyone not retarded or suicidal will refuse.

    So if we all agree polluting is bad, why can't we all agree to do something about it?

    Strange, considering that TPP is one of the main reasons @jkcerda rails against Clinton. Perhaps he doesn't understand his own favorite candidate. That would make sense, given his flip-floppy history of supporting Trump, then Sanders, now Johnson - totally confused and disconnected from the world outside.

    We all agree? Close to half the country wants to eliminate the EPA.

    Still about 50 days left. He'll be supporting Jill Stein before then. He has no one else left to support.

    I dare say the reasons are staring everyone in the face and people don't want to accept it or can't think outside the box.

    Gore just makes money off of books as a business venture. Maybe there's an update to the Snopes article pointing put how much fuel he wastes, but when Snopes and others saw the double standards at that time Gore became the butt of jokes from the right-wing and the left-wing also figured out he wasn't all that great. Especially being a leader figure, along with making money from his product ostensibly meant to inform and to change the world. Which didn't happen because, for whatever reason or reasons, nobody believed him or stopped doing so.

    Or pointing out different issues, devil's advocate, he, like everyone else, is not mandated to put up disclaimers and ideally others would ask for responses than to make assumptions.

    However, with the key phrase "in its current form", Clinton admitted the TPP and said those key words. No other candidate who supports the TPP has said anything even remotely hinting at changing it. FWIW. They just support it. And if Johnson, with all his gaffes of recent, is disconnected with the world, I wouldn't be quick to instantly disbelieve it at this point.

    Lazy socialists are waiting for the Sun to destroy the Earth, when free enterprise can do it much sooner.

    I doubt he is as ashamed about this as he was about Bernie's change of heart. :)

    Real progressives are waiting for a giant asteroid, which won't actually destroy the Earth, only make it easier for the next thing to happen.

    Where did I say anything about the EPA? That's a bureaucracy which is not equal to environmentalism.

    Again, find me a person that wants to drink flammable drinking water. You see the EPA preventing that? What did the EPA do about Flint, Michigan?

    You're first response was about politics not tanglible responsible environmental policies. No wonder our environment is going to hell.

    Real progressives believe climate change will make the earth inhabitable in a few short years. They are also ideologically opposed to clean greenhouse-free nuclear power because atoms are scary and stuff.

    It's okay he buys carbon credits off his own company to counter his pollution.
