It seems to me that everyone agrees with the Greens except on the one issue they know lots about. Sum it all together, and maybe the green's actually don't know wtf they're doing with anything?

Also...am I the only one who kinda is kinda not that opposed to Trump given the alternatives? He's clearly insane and creates 'policy' off the cuff, but at least he's not completely dogmatic. Also quietly hoping that if he wins it'll mean the GOP blows up completely.

maybe when people agree with the greens on an issue they know lots about they don't feel the need to make a big deal about it and go on about it on detail so you're not seeing those instances :)

I guess he would be a bit funnier then ted Cruz, I just object to a madman being given that much power, but then I guess Cruz and Paul are no better.

Now, the screamers and the crazy people on the alt-right, as they call it, who love Donald Trump, who have plenty of Hitler iconography in their Twitter icons, who see Donald Trump as the greatest thing…The fact of the matter is, most of them are childless single men who masturbate to anime. They’re not real political players. These are not people who matter in the overall course of humanity.

'I Like It When You Die' is the fourth album by American grindcore band Anal Cunt. The album was originally titled You're Gay, and the album cover was going to contain a mirror, but this idea was later changed

And yet when Muslims bring religion into their politics, Christians see it as an abhorrent threat to freedom.

I love this kind of christian 'witticism'

Apparently the people in the room don't think God can hear their prayers unless half the people in the room are videoing them on their phones and uploading to the *cloud* - which is apparently where they think God resides!

There were a few speakers before Trump came out and they were not well organized at all. They were comical. One man, a veteran, said that he had shed blood on 7 continents. And unless I missed the great Antarctica War, I highly doubt that's true.

In fact the fascists got stabbed by the klan;

Looks like the anti-klan fascists got the sharp end of the melee.

The 1st Amendment gives citizens the right to free speech without government interference.

The fact that others find what you might have to say repulsive and speak out against it is a different story all together.

Speaking out about something one finds repulsive is a different story altogether than attacking someone in the streets.

Prediction : Clinton has to bow out due to impending indictment from the FBI for dicking around with confidential information or whatever the fuck they're on about. Establishment Democrats move to install Joe Biden as nominee, progressives lose their shit, convention is a clusterfuck from which hopefully cooler heads prevail and Sanders emerges as the nominee as he's the only one to likely take down Trump, according to EVERY FUCKING POLL BY LIKE 14%.
Fucking loving this election drama tbh.

The people who actually run things don't really care which party is in power, or what colour or gender the president is. Trump (vulgar misogynist though he is) actually has a valid point about Hillary Clinton playing the "woman card". She used it constantly in debates with Sanders to deflect criticisms that she represents more of the same old shit. More of the same old shit, of course, is exactly what the capitalist establishment wants, and she's their best chance of achieving that. They will be leaning on the FBI not to prosecute her at least for now.
