I hear donald duck is making a serious run as well, and that other bush guy and that libertarian guy who never got past a high school level understanding of lit with political implications......too bad he didn't get more stuck with orwell and less with rand.....
(though, I will give him major credit for having the balls to stand up to McConnell on the Patriot Act renewal.....that was awesome. :rockon: )

state of American politics.............. :no:

god.....er......some entity.....help us. :nyrexall:

Good. He's not a serious candidate, and there is no serious candidate for the Republicans. I wouldn't have minded Clinton in '08, but knew she wouldn't get elected then. She has a shot now, though I'd prefer if Bernie Sanders could swing her campaign even further to the left, and that he could end up with a cabinet position if she does get elected.

Trump has pissed off Neil Young.

http://www.motherjones.com/politics/201 ... ie-sanders

When Donald Trump strode on to the stage at Trump Tower on Tuesday to announce that he would enter the Republican race for president, a rock and roll anthem blared: Neil Young’s "Rockin’ in the Free World." It was an odd choice, given that the 1989 song seemed to slam a Republican administration for not giving a damn about the poor. And Young has taken exception to Trump's appropriation of his tune. A statement issued to Mother Jones for Young by his longtime manager Elliot Roberts suggests Young was not pleased by Trump's use of the song:

Donald Trump's use of "Rockin' in the Free World" was not authorized. Mr. Young is a longtime supporter of Bernie Sanders.

In other words, it may be a free world, but you're not free to steal my song.

Yay, we have this year's Sarah Palin officially in the race! Cement Hair has zero chance of getting the nomination or even participating in any debates. The best thing that will happen is NBC will drop his stupid tv show because they don't want to be seen endorsing the guy.

'Jeb' is actually John. I assume, like George, that 'Jeb' is an attempt to portray an East Coast elitist Republican as a folksy backwoods conservative. :no:

Honestly, he's probably less stupid than George W., and we survived those eight years, and I really think it's absurd that Clinton is the only viable candidate, though I would have voted for her 8 years ago.

There is no real left wing in the United States. Candidates who would be moderate leftists anywhere else (like members of the Canadian Liberal party which is centre-left by our standards) are cast as fringe unelectables before they even have a chance. Ah well.

with the republican candidates they have now how can they possibly win? they do the worst job of getting the right candidate. john mccain was the last decent one but unfortunately he was old as shit and then his vp choice happened. i'm not a hillary fan at all. hopefully something happens to shake up this election.

Really? Was McCain a good candidate?

He came across as a redneck ex-paracommando to me, with no expertise in economy or politics or whatever.

But I might be wrong

I used to be interested in politics, but it's just actually a mind numbingly predictable game that goes round and round ad nauseam.

We are all complicit, can't believe the degree that people buy in. The media is something else. :eyes:

I'm not even so upset at the candidates anymore. Everyone has the right to be an idiot.


Let me off this ride, just wake me when it's time to vote.............. :bored:

Really? I didn't think that Bernie Sanders was a predictable candidate. Is it predictable that he's not a viable candidate? Sure, but he's interesting, and should have some effect on Clinton's eventual policies should she be elected.

There is an undercurrent of stronger leftist policymaking that goes beyond presidential candidates. There hasn't been someone like Elizabeth Warren in a long time. :rockon:

Presidents are important, but so are all the other cogs in the machine.
