When the objective of politics is to achieve dominion over your opponents and the citizenry, name calling seems irrelevant. Besides, there is plenty of name-calling that’s accurate. Trump’s a fascist technocrat, Hillary is a lying progressive war pig, Gary Johnson is a dope, and Jill Stein is a dingbat. A somewhat charming dingbat, but a dingbat, nonetheless. And it doesn’t stop there. Everyone who’s caught up in the madness and believes voting will make a difference is a statist fool. Unfortunately, the people who know what’s right typically have the personality of sand paper, so no one listens. The sum is everyone is an ass hole.
So, which, in your estimation, plop of poop gets selected for us?

I’m not proud. Too many damned Marxists, fascists, and progressives, who believe it’s virtuous for one to sacrifice himself for the common good, something which they can’t define. Then there are the cowards who are willing to trade liberty for security. We don’t even pretend we have due process anymore. Quite honestly, I’m ashamed.

A spoon full of peanut butter works every time. Also you can hold your breath for 10 seconds then, without taking a breath, take 10 gulps of water and they’re gone.
Don't know if it works for everyone but a spoon full of sugar works for me every time and no complaints about the taste.

Man I don’t know. I’m a libertarian, and I would have a hard time getting behind Gary Johnson. Seems he’s more interested in trying to siphon votes away from Bernie supporters rather than standing behind libertarian ideas. As a libertarian, I really can’t think of anything worse than trying to compromise with Marxists and/or having a bunch of them influencing the LP. Big L libertarians are bad enough.

Yeah, all the “experts” are war criminals.

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied: and all the means of seducing the minds are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals, engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” James Madison
I don't believe the facts support this statement with regard to Reagan
That's because he's been remade into something of god by ignorant conservatives.

Wow! Public sector and charitable foundation pay seems pretty good. Perhaps a little too good? If what Cuban says is true why would it stop Trump from releasing his taxes? I don’t get it. Hillary is more likely to pander to the 99% crowd. The Clinton’s don’t produce anything. What am I missing?

Lol. Would have been real entertaining if the dudes were in Speedos!

I thought the same thing. The headline may have been a wee bit of an exaggeration.
I thought it was funny.

“Attendees at the Wells Fargo Arena crowd mostly cheered at the Vermont senator’s suggestion that they support Clinton over Republican nominee Donald Trump, who seeks to “divide us up” and discriminate against specific people groups, Sanders said.”
Isn’t breaking people down into two groups (the bourgeoisie and the proletariat) and making one of the groups subordinate to the other divisive and discriminatory too?
@East, Populist nationalism isn’t a hard philosophy to crack, brother. I know YOU want chaos in hopes something good rises from the ashes, but for me to say that, in general, people who support Trump are nationalists isn’t any different than me saying people who support Bernie Sanders are socialists, or people who support Hillary are progressives. You’ll always have people who are supporters of “the Party”, people who think they can somehow achieve virtue from voting for the lesser of two evils, and people who are just ignorant, but I don’t see why it’s a stretch to say people who fervently supported a nationalist are nationalists. I wouldn’t think someone was out of line saying that since I supported Ron Paul I was a libertarian. I am. I’m a little more hardcore libertarian today (cough… anarchist) than I was then, but you get my drift.

@Soy, All I know is his rhetoric sounds ultra-nationalistic to me, but I haven’t paid all that much attention to the media this cycle as I did last cycle. I’m done with government. It’s evil.
@East, I know you have a different reason why you’re supporting Trump, but the generalization is pretty accurate.

Trump supporters see the world in terms of globalism vs. nationalism. Using those parameters he does seem like an outsider, but for those who see the struggle between individualism and collectivism, he’s no different than all the rest of them. The only difference between his version of collectivism and the others’ is merely a matter of membership. Who’s included. The Trump supporters would prefer a more exclusive club, if you will.
“Trump supporters see the world in terms of globalism vs. nationalism”
I understand what you are saying. But even in those terms, i think one would be a fool to think so….Trump has a long history of manufacturing his products overseas. Trump says we should have stolen Iraq’s oil – if that isnt globalism – i dont know what is.
just.. my man. lol.
you, of all people,- generalizing?
“Trump supporters” is a very, very broad political and social demographic.
stereotyping them is.. a foolish endeavor.
there’s no umbrella.
you know this.
you also know this:
(no pressure. lol:)
i’ve never seen a candidate that makes mainstream politicians squirm the way this guy does.?
time to play roulette. i’m saying!
bring on 2020!
it will be an historical year- because of what Trump did, (Bernie, too- to a degree) this election cycle.
he’s changed it.
full disclosure: brother-in-law stopped by with Maker’s Mark.
please ignore the rest of my comments this evening.
f- yeah, you dopes.
funny thing is- BIL writes for the NYTs (shh)

i dunno, just.
my whole family supports Trump.
for all sorts of different reasons.
weirdest thing, ever.
usually- we can't agree on the colour of shyte.
and still can't.
because of that-
i think the typical trump supporter is supporting him for extremely cynical reasons.
* “my whole family” = an exaggeration.
lol. it’s really about 3/4 of my family.
big family, though.

i do, brother.
i hope you get mine, too.
card game ;)
might come down to my haircut:
you never know!
whenever i want to debate something that's really worthwhile-
i go on youtube and talk shirt about Pavement.
Mind "stealing their oil" would have been 1000 dollar answer on that pyramid game "what are things that people of European descent do"
unpredictable chaos- right now.
it really is.
and that’s a fact.
and that’s, ultimately, a good thing.
it’s not about the person.
it’s about their effect on the machine.
at this point.

Yup respect for authority is a problem. Especially when you consider Obama and his corrupt underlings are authority.

I don’t know why they feel the need to apologize to them. The year I was born they thought it was necessary to drop napalm on them. What changed?

They’re both corrupt, but if you want to point fingers let’s start with the $2 trillion Donny Rumsfield “lost”.
