The names called Donald Trump on his visit to Scotland to reopen Turnberry.. Besides having golf balls with swastikas thrown at him, the Scots anointed many fabulous names on him

Could it get any better than tiny fingered, cheeto faced, ferret wearing shitgibbon?

I truly believe it is time to have leadership that understands what it takes to accomplish something and be sucessful at it. When you have leadership that has experience in community organizing and
sniveling and whining you get weakness.
Thats where we are today. Eight more years of it is more than many can stomach.
Thirty years of the Clintons lining their pockets is enough for me anyway. What happened to the days of serving your country and going back into private life afterward? At least George W.Bush had enough class to go home and keep his mouth shut.

He is very successful at bankruptcy.

He would also be 4x plus as wealthy if he would have invested in index funds.

I'm not fan of Hillary, but Trump is an absolute train wreck of idiocy

I could never trust Hillary. She lies when it isn't even necessary. She lies more than she tells the truth. Trump is a clown and would be an embarrassment as president.

Time for Gary Johnson. Check out his record as two term governor of New Mexico. Time for a change.

Voting is a waste of time anyhow. Let alone if you cast that vote for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein

You can look up his record as two term governor of New Mexico. He actually has a great track record that can be verified. Unlike either of the other two. He's just not a great public speaker.


Hillary lies about everything. And Trump is very weird.

Johnson more than doubled the State's debt in 8 years. Is that really a great track record?

Thanks Rotor. No way I would ever vote for Hillary. Nasty nasty human. Trump isn't a great speaker either. No political experience on speaking like a politician. It's going to be an interesting election to say the least. Very entertaining.

"Johnson inherited a debt of $1.8 billion and left a debt of $4.6 billion, a rate of increase unmatched by the 22 governors in either party who have filed for presidential primaries in the past two decades"

From your article,

From your article,

Yes. Did you read the whole article? The part you quoted was from the top portion, an article which was refuted in the bottom half of the article.

"Spiller “credits” Johnson with spending money he had little control over. His spending numbers include federal dollars that flow into the state for everything from Medicaid to education. Including just the General Fund that the legislature and governor must agree to each year, Johnson’s first budget was $2.7 billion and his final budget, eight years later, was $3.9 billion (an increase of about 41 percent). Thus, under Johnson, New Mexico’s General Fund spending grew by 4.67 percent annually, not the outrageous 7.29 percent rate cited by Spiller...."

Spending bills he had no control over? He vetoed over 700 bills in his time. Anyhow. I can't imagine Gary Johnson being a worse candidate to the major party ones for sure. It is just sad in a nation of 350 million this is our choice

I'd vote for Hillery in a heartbeat.

I'd vote for her too, but not in a heartbeat. I'd have to down a package of Zantac and then run to Plaza for a some clothespins to stick on my nose first. It's a no-brainer for me.

Too many people vote 3rd party and Trump wins.
Too many people don't vote and Trump wins.

In no way do I want that impetuous narcissist to have his hands on the nuke codes.

Isn't it quite pathetic that the 300M nation can produce only two presidential candidates where one of them is a crucked, narcistic, misgenistic, racist demagogue with checkered business past and the other Wall Street sold out politician with proven history of notorious lying, self serving, greedy, charity exploiting, champagne and private jet democrat? Her preferred mode of transportation to her speaking engagements is Gulftream V. Who would want to listen speaking to her for $30,000 a plate dinner? Apparently WS does. She is clearly selling political influence to the highest bidder.

Both are one step away from indictment.

Is this the best we can produce?

I would take Obama for another 8 years or even GWB over any of them.

Is it the best we can do? Certainly not. Is it the what we are allowed to do. Yes. The oligarchy is strong in the USA. Can't change that. It's why I don't give two craps about politics unless it would involve sending my boy to some stupid war. I worry about my family and what I have control over. This is all a charade. Nothing will change. Voting is the most absolute waste of time I can possibly imagine.

Actually that was an infinitely more valuable use of time. As was this response.

I shudder to think what "vice posting" is but maybe it's one of those new acronyms. Who can keep track when more (and more convoluted ones) appear every day.

no, I dont think they are both one step away from indictment. I think that Hillary's crimes will be ignored by a rigged system and a pathetic public of followers.
I havent seen anything about Trump being under criminal investigation.
If both candidates pasts are compared, She is a self serving criminal that used every position she was intrusted with by the american people to line her pockets and further her ambitions. She told many everything they wanted to hear and too at least half of us, thats all that is important. Many dislike Trump and view him in the same manner, however their is one big difference, he did it using the capitalism that made America what it is today. His biggest issue with most is the fact that he didn't need to pander to a bunch of whiners to get where he is today and doesn't care to do it now either. If the American people knowing all they know about Hillary entrust her with the Presidency, it wont make one bit of difference to him. It certainly will to most of the rest of us and our children. No, it won"t make much difference to you if your over fifty and don't have any children or to all your dogs and cats.
