The Greatest Election in my Lifetime

By TwoScoopsMcGee   2016 Feb 17, 2:04pm   5,672 views   31 comments   watch (0)   quote      

A Democratic Party where the Conservative Democrat is being tied in most states by a self-proclaimed "Democratic Socialist", and whinging she shouldn't even have to fight for the nomination because she's a woman, dammit.

A Republican Party where an outsider who talks openly about the failings of Hyperinterventionism in the Middle East, bashes Neocons and promotes Anti-Free Trade Tariffs and Negotiating Medicare Drug Prices instead of paying full retail - and is 2:1 over his only opponents that regularly run double digit percentages. And all the GOP establishment is lining up in a desperate attempt to overthrow him.

This is truly a wonderful election.

Wonderful ? Maybe. Interesting, definitely. Scary, is the word I would use. What are the overlords going to do if they can't get one of their guys in there ?

Are we really enough of a democracy still, to put Trump or Sanders in there ? I really don't know. I know that sounds pretty jaded, but it's how I feel.

thunderlips11,
Donald Trump says repeatedly 'it looks like we have big market price bubbles'. Do you expect that this content

Yes, Patrick, we haven't seen anyone like Trump since Ross Perot. I still remember that guy. A lot of people were really pulling for him. Then he pussied out and left his supporters hanging. I don't see Trump doing that. He'll go third party if the GOP shuts him out with party rules and superdelegates. I say fuck em! Run third party! Blow up their tiny brains!

Certainly strange. Instead of a third party candidate in the general election, you've essentially got two third party candidates that have taken over the party primaries. Frankly, I don't understand how either of them can be running. Gotta love America.

Yeah, but I.don't see Trump falling for a phony phone call from a Howard Stern fan.

I keep hearing this crap about how blacks and women will assure Hillary a victory.

There you go, America. The Great Comeuppance. If that's the case, it's fucking sad that women a/o blacks are allowed to vote

Yes with out a doubt. Funny how it coincides with the climax of the cord cutting movement, yet what is going on in Politcs right now. If far more interesting than anything that has been on television in at least 15 years. Hell probably the whole history of television. But there was some good television before the melinial SJWs hijacked it from the Jews.

Well I for one look forward with great optimism to a Great America Again.

Even if some of you guys were enjoying this sucky lull low we've been in.

You guys must be Obamacare salesmen I was told over the weekend they get residuals from the tax payers for every poor and illegal alien they sign up.
I would be threatened by sensible candidates too if I were those guys. A President that gives a solid rats ass, does not bode will with those folks.

True enough, but doesn't matter. It's okay for Mexicans in the US to vote in Mexican elections, and I'm still paying the IRS in every paycheck.

Mittens, you know I didn't even vote in 2012. because I couldn't bring my self to vote for anyone.
I wasn't voting for Mitt I would have been voting against Obama. And that's just the wrong reason to vote.
It's nice to have a candidate that you want to vote for a chance. Everyone keeps trying to label him as a Democrat or claim he's not Republican enough.
They don't realize it doesn't matter, because his supporters are not side splitting sobbing conservative republican lunatics either.
He's being elected by the silent majority. That's no joke, the independent disenfranchised No Party affiliated voter in this country has been marginalized and have been exploited by the trappings of our two party only system. Watching the way Trump has masterfully whisked it away from them. And as they lay helpless and Trump trashes them like a Croc has a Wilder Beast at a watering hole. He aint letting lose.

They need more than a Tax return for Trump to let go of his quarry. The GOP is Doomed.

It doesn't matter because racism comes in all flavors.

It's going to be quite a shock if Trump is elected and y'all find out he's not actually a racist. I'd say impeachment hearings will be just around the corner.

Hilarious Rubio complained about Polish workers on Trump Buildings. Polish workers? yeah, Everywhere I go I see Polish signs, every automated phone says "Prezcy 3 for polszczyzna" along with ATMs. Can't go 50 feet without a Westernerny Unionzy Reicmittanczy a Warsawa sign

Nice bit of trying to be anti-immigration without pissing off Hispanics.

When pressed on specifics for healthcare reform, none of these guys have any specifics. Like, at all

And its a shame that none of these guys even get questioned on the fixing the university and student loan debt that is strangling the economy problem.

Like with a Capitalist solution for once. Free Markets, fuck yea Merica. ALLOW ALL STUDENT LOAN DEBT TO BE PURGABLE IN BANKRUPTCY COURT. Boom, the market will solve the problem instantly

What kind of free market capitalist would dislike the idea of allowing student debt to be purged in bankruptcy court?

The reason that costs and debts for college education are a bubble, is because its been removed from the free market capitalist realm where the other side of the trade of loaning out the money is a bankruptcy filing.

Jesus, the GOPe was unhinged with a mixture of delusion and impotent rage tonight. Lowry, etc. were all tweeting "Trump is losing! Rubio gave him a zinger!" Looks like their "Manhattan Project" to bash Trump and rally around Rubio looks more like Spinal Tap's dancing midget around a mini Stonehedge.

This alone might be worth a Trump win:

Al Sharpton might 'get out of here' if Trump wins

Rev. Al Sharpton told attendees at a Center for American Progress Action Fund event Thursday he would flee the country if Donald Trump won the election, in order to avoid being deported by Trump.


"If Donald Trump is the nominee, I'm open to support anyone [else], while I'm also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins, only because he'd probably have me deported anyway," Sharpton told attendees, who responded in laughter.

Al Sharpton getting deported would be one less problem for America. Jesse should go with him and solve lots of America's problems.
