Come on people.

I guess he was just joking about every other stupid thing he said too? Dodgy

A presidential candidate who's already under scrutiny for the anti-democratic nature of his rhetoric is suddenly "just joking" when he takes one step too far?

Spot on!

Quote:It's About The Country Vs. The City

I've been saying this for a while now in the multitude of gun threads and elsewhere ... it's Cain vs. Abel.

And it's been evident in the politics of the UK since ... ever. I was the boy from the village / farm country at a school for stoke-broker children.

But the solution has to look beyond the happy musical:





... because it's not as simple as rural settler / farmer (Cain) vs. rural nomad / cowboy (Abel), where a city is just a glorified settlement.




(I had to learn how to tap-dance in three months for that role).

The article hinted at the economic forces that are at the root cause of the small settlement / rural decline.

Quote:See, rural jobs used to be based around one big local business -- a factory, a coal mine, etc. When it dies, the town dies. Where I grew up, it was an oil refinery closing that did us in. I was raised in the hollowed-out shell of what the town had once been.

Settlers, Prospectors and Pioneers

When the Prospectors leave the settlement dies; miners (whether coal or oil or Walmart or Wall Street) move on so the settlers must innovate, become farmers or perish.

Interestingly, much of Bernie Sanders' support seems to have come from the Prospector 'Now People' acting as a counter-balance to the Prospector ‘Happy Followers’ and the Prospector 'Golden Dreamers'... the latter group includes Trump ("They are liable to cut corners to ensure they have enough money to “buy the dream”).

Thing is, with Clinton, I can't see it getting any better for these groups. The TPP with ensure that the mega-Prospectors will continue to consolidate wealth towards the elites.

If it wasn't for the negative impact on civil rights I think I'd be voting for Trump.

Is there no hope?

If Clinton wins:
Step 1. Put Elizabeth Warren in charge of the ISDS
Step 2. Get on social media and start building Consumer Unions that can boycott brands / corporations thus impacting their bottom line to get the shareholders' attention.

If Trump wins:
1. Enjoy the last days of Murikan imperialism as it continues to become more isolated from the rest of the world and, if you're in the Middle East, breath a tremendous sigh of relief and take some lessons from South America on how to rebuild.
2. Save up for a ticket to Mars.

If its impossible to tell wether someone is joking or not (whith saying something absurdly stupid), then we call these people "poe"s. You want a poe as president?

You really want a president who, when he tells you "we gonna bomb the living shit out of the russian fleet sailing towards the eastern mediterranean!", you dont know wether hes serious or "just joking"?

Yes, qualities needed in a leader are trustworthiness, reliability, honesty and consistency.

Oh, well, tough nut America.

Quote:Donald Trump suggested canceling the election Thursday and granting himself the presidency.

“What a difference. You know, what a difference this is,” Trump said during a rally in Toledo, Ohio, after comparing his tax plan with Hillary Clinton’s.

“And just thinking to myself right now, we should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump, right? What are we even having it for? What are we having it for?” he asked. “Her policies are so bad. Boy, do we have a big difference.”

Twelve days from Election Day, Trump’s indication that he should be given the White House also comes as he trails Clinton nationally and in a number of key battleground states. Polls also show Clinton is challenging the GOP nominee in Republican strongholds like Arizona, Utah and Texas.

Trump, who has propagated unsubstantiated claims that the election is rigged against him, has also suggested that if he were to lose, he may not concede the election, bucking the tradition of a concession by the loser and a peaceful transfer of power.
Throughout his rally, Trump seemed to gain more confidence as he fed off the crowd’s energy. Less than 10 minutes in, he had called for the “Washington establishment to hear and heed the words I’m about to say.”

“If we win on Nov. 8,” he began, as the crowd roared. “OK. OK. You ready? When we win.”

He acknowledged there was “a lot of good energy” from his supporters and reminded them that he once worked in Ohio, crediting the state for giving him confidence by giving him success before finishing his thought.

“So when,” he continued, pausing for emphasis, “we win, we are going to Washington, D.C., and we are going to drain the swamp.”

I don't even have words at this point...

We could combine the offices of President and Chancellor and just call him "Führer".

Mostly I've just been propping posts but...he does kind of already have a Trump Youth that's being led by a supposed Nazi apologist. Some of the people at his rallies are using the Nazi word for journalists who didn't support Hitler. And there's "The Lion's Guard", a group of pro-Trump folks claiming they're organizing a militia. And so on...

Need to think of a witty signature.
