Which voters? Republicans? Or the Democrats and unaffiliated voters who pushed Trump to a plurality? Closed primaries are a good thing – if you can’t take the time to register in a party, why should you have a say in the nomination of that party’s candidates? Should granola munchin’ hippies that are too liberal to consider themselves Democrats be allowed to sabotage GOP primaries?

Obama’s faults aside, what you’re suggesting is treason.

Proof that Trump is trying to lose: name a candidate, for any office, that would publicize and brag about being endorsed by convicted rapists, Mike Tyson, and a convicted murderer, Don King? And realistically, when convicted of serious crimes like rape and manslaughter – reduced from 2nd degree for stomping a man to death, shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

If anyone thinks Trump believes anything he says, you deserve President Clinton Part Deux. He was pro-choice before he wasn’t; pro-gun control before he wasn’t; pro-Libya intervention before he wasn’t; pro-Iraq War before he was against it; pro-Hillary before he was against her; pro-Obama stimulus before he was against it; pro-Planned Parenthood before he was…no, he still defends pap smears and mammograms in one room while ignoring murder in the next; pro-progressive taxation before he was…no, still supports it and opposes a flat tax; and pro-eminent domain for private development before he was…no, he even defends it. This is also the same guy who fired active military from his businesses by counting their service obligations as “absences”; kicked veteran vendors from trying to make a living in front of his building; and compared avoiding The Clap to fighting in Vietnam. You get what you deserve.

Only one of them thought/thinks avoiding The Clap is the equivalent of fighting in Vietnam. It’s also the same guy who thinks attending a high-priced private military boarding school in the NYC suburbs, including earning the meritorious “medals” for keeping a neat and clean bed/footlocker, is the same as serving in the military. Also the same guy who fired, then paid off with non-disclosure enforced payoffs, active reservists from his various businesses b/c their service to their country conflicted with service to the company. And it’s the same guy who thinks Saudi Arabia should have nuclear weapons. Yeah, nothing bad could happen.

Please reference where I said that Trump was responsible. I’m having trouble finding it. Merely pointing out that Deferment Donald thinks avoiding The Clap was equivalent to fighting in Vietnam.

Whether you agree with it or not, when Ali dodged the draft, it was out of conscience. When Trump deferred his way out of the draft, it was out of convenience for the son of millionaire real estate developer.
And Hillary wasn’t allowed to join the Marine Corps because she was a woman…
How about we leave the Trump/Hillary Dual/Scumbag issue off this page, and just say goodbye to someone who was important to our lives 40 years ago.
WOW, Trump is responsible for Ali's death. You her really digging deep Imabus
He was not a draft dodger. First he had deferment and any college student was allowed to have one and second his classification was 1-Y, meaning he was at the bottom of the list and would only be drafted if there was a national emergency. The draft lottery came two months after Trump received his 1-Y classification. Essentially, even if Trump’s birthday, June 14, had been pulled first, he would not have been called to serve. His number was #356.
Cassius Clay took advantage of everything America had to offer, while hating America.
So his conscience wouldn't allow him to fight in Vietnam...but it would allow him to fight in the ring? Yeah, that makes sense.
hahahaha so it's ok
So, lanimilbus--theywere both chickens...

There’s a key difference Apatow fails to realize. There’s a difference between critical of Hollywood’s inability to come up with an original idea and hating a movie purely because it has female-centric cast. And I use the word “female” specifically. I’m talking about chromosomes. You know how you end the bathroom controversy? Start putting XX and XY on the doors. Even if you accept the ridiculous argument that gender and sex aren’t synonyms, that gender is a social construct, there’s nothing “Caitlyn” Jenner can do to get ride of the Y chromosome; there’s nothing “Chaz” Bono can do to add one. For the handful of true transsexuals, with genetic birth defects that make them XXY, they are the ONLY ones that can have any sort of grievance.

Are we really making fun of people for having glasses? Is that how far political debate and public discourse have fallen? The mere fact that you can’t list grievances in a constructive way is an indictment on you.

He was concerned the money would go to actual veteran’s organizations, like the one supporting veteran vendors who were kicked out of in front of Trump Tower. “While disabled veterans should be given every opportunity to earn a living, is it fair to do so to the detriment of the city as a whole or its tax paying citizens and businesses?”
That is why the ranked-choice solution is better (see above)
Let the parties do whatever they want to do. But the voters should have a better voting system in the general election
Instant runoff expects a lot of political literacy on behalf of the voter.
Not at all. Everyone would still have the option of voting for just one person if they prefer. The additional choice to rank a second....Third.....Or forth selection is completely optional.

And yet most of his hotels are “gun free zones”. There’s also that annoying thing called his record: “I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun,”
Most of his hotels but not all. He also has a CCW.
Dianne Feinstein had a CCW. Now she wants everyone to turn their guns in.
Those with casinos have no choice. It's a law. Even back in the good ole days casinos made people check their guns.
It's also good business in some cases.

Prediction: not only will Gary Johnson qualify for the debates, he’ll qualify the Libertarian Party for presidential matching funds in 2020; the key is to avoid another 2000 redux of the Reform Party split.
 May 18, 2016 at 3:21pm
Any answer to the reasonable issues I raised? Did he not call himself pro-choice? Did he not say that he supported gun control? Did he not contribute money to liberal Democrats as recently as 2008? Did he not praise Obama’s performance during his first 100 days? Did he not defend eminent domain for private development during the debates? Did he not defend the pap smears and mammograms performed by Planned Parenthood while ignoring the genocide?

“He’s getting old, so he wants his Social Security and Medicare preserved in case he needs them.” And the award for most idiotic logic – in case the billionaire needs his Social Security check. His royalties from his Home Alone 2 cameo are worth more than his Social Security – royalties that wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for Ronald Reagan.

Nor did I deny that reality. In fact, I explicitly said “assuming Trump loses no matter what”. The question is, if you assume she wins regardless, is there value in keeping her under 50%?
