    Trump is a democratic plant. he is trying to lose without being obvious. I expect his rhetoric to get worse and worse as we get closer to the election. I predict that at the first or second debates he makes the craziest remarks yet.

    I'm beginning to believe that is the only possible answer.
    Vote for the other candidate

    He is an insufferable a**hole.There is nothing else to say. I can't imagine what goes on in the minds of his supporters.:huh

    As stated, he is the republican presidential candidate. There are now supporters that were pro democrat before Johnson that are now devote republicans because they hate anyone that is not white, period ! There are other groups too that vote anti democrat, no thought into it... It is scary to think that Johnson passed the civil rights bill and the entire south turned republican based on race alone.

    I for one think America should divide into 2 separate countries NOW. The mental ideas we all have are so far separated that it would be for the best. Bring about a unity of sorts..
    You dont want to allow abortion, want all the guns you can have, want to discriminate... You get Florida's west Coast divided right down Route 27 and connected to 75. You can even have gainsville and Ocala... You get all of Georgia, Miss, LA, Texas, Alabama, Ark, Tenn, Ket, and southern Ohio up to columbus. You can have bottom half of Indiana, Ill and all of Wisconisn, you get SC and most of NC... Plus you get WV, you got Oky, and a sliver that connects you thru Kansas, and nebraska so you get to Wyoming and SOUTH dakota... There you go, even steven...

    Things are just to far apart tp make this a great country again... There was a time when the North was in control and the South had to follow.. But the South deserves rights too and no way to vote them in anymore... Too outnumbered by liberals and the Colors (tan, dark, green people, etc)

    Trump is playing the Hillbilly tune and getting major responses by that group, the followers...

    Hillary admitted her mistake. That is the sign of character. She won't make the same mistake again.

    Trump is never wrong, about anything. He is perfect. That is some scary sh**.

    I just gave you three of Hillary's "mistakes". One of which may surpass Vietnam as a historic, colossal, and enduring blunder. Hillary has demonstrated she has learned nothing and appears incapable of doing so.

    I will not reward proven failure of such magnitutde. You, among others, however will choose to do so. After Hillary's win, and when the neocons tire of laughing, I'm sure they'll thank you folks for foolishly giving them another opportunity.

    I have been saving the following for a long time, as it mirrored my opinion at the time.

    A desperate last ditch attempt to head off a terrible tradegy.



    From the op-ed page of the New York Times of 26 September 2002, signed by 33 scholars of international relations.

    WAR WITH IRAQ IS NOT IN AMERICA'S NATIONAL INTEREST


    As scholars of international security affairs, we recognize that war is sometimes necessary to ensure our national security or other vital interests. We also recognize that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and that Iraq has defied a number of U.N. resolutions. But military force should be used only when it advances U.S. national interests. War with Iraq does not meet this standard.

    Saddam Hussein is a murderous despot, but no one has provided credible evidence that Iraq is cooperating with al Qaeda.

    Even if Saddam Hussein acquired nuclear weapons, he could not use them without suffering massive U.S. or Israeli retaliation.
    The first Bush administration did not try to conquer Iraq in 1991 because it understood that doing so could spread instability in the Middle East, threatening U.S. interests. This remains a valid concern today.

    The United States would win a war against Iraq, but Iraq has military options—chemical and biological weapons, urban combat—that might impose significant costs on the invading forces and neighboring states.

    Even if we win easily, we have no plausible exit strategy. Iraq is a deeply divided society that the United States would have to occupy and police for many years to create a viable state.

    Al Qaeda poses a greater threat to the U.S. than does Iraq. War with Iraq will jeopardize the campaign against al Qaeda by diverting resources and attention from that campaign and by increasing anti-Americanism around the globe.

    The United States should maintain vigilant containment of Iraq—using its own assets and the resources of the United Nations—and be prepared to invade Iraq if it threatens to attack America or its allies. That is not the case today. We should concentrate instead on defeating al Qaeda.

    Donald Trump is a professional wrestler, so deep into character that he now believes it. Its his New York, rich kid, growing up watching TV and tabloid, bulls hit artist culture.

    His opponents are the kind of kids who were in Jr.Achievement and Future Business Leaders of America. They have no skillset to combat a guy who lived his high school experience never reading a book, being actually sequestered in the cliche of military school, which was where your parents would threaten to send you for recalcitrant behavior to straighten yourasss out.

    That's what's wrong with the guy.

    yup! just another poor boy off to fight a rich man's war...
    Both sides have the pro-war stance without an end in sight. look at Barry O's 1 trillion dollar upgrade to the nukes, one that can target a very small area, as if that is ok.
    Very few countries have issues with terrorism, we just need to keep our fingers outta the pie.
    Scary how many Dems at the upper level want and accept eternal war, too.

    And to think, we have the capability to remove ALL nuclear weapons and nuclear waste from the planet, but that was never mentioned by any candidate anywhere, as are humans rapidly advancing fusion technology.

    yes

    bs, this is just rhetoric, the machine she represents, the continual war republicrat party, will keep engaging in military actions that have little to do with national security and everything to do with advancing corporate interests

    yeah, he's a jerk, but he'll have no more control over where we fight than the clinton admin

    democrats and repulicans = perpetual war and foreign interventions

    and to the op, yes he is a megalomaniac with no regard for other human beings and not fit for the office of president, neither is clinton

    Mr. Khan, with his wife by his side, addressed a political convention, where he threw insults and accusation against Donald Trump, therefor he has no right to hide behind the sacrifice of his son. Donald Trump did not send his son to fight, and had no say in the action, how the hell is he responsible for anything to do with Mr. Khan's son?

    :huh

    Where in his speech did Mr. Khan accuse Trump of being responsible for his son's death?

    Here it is here:

    What he did say was that his son did not die for the kind of America Donald Trump envisions, if Trump has any vision at all besides the crap he says and explains away the next day as meaning something else. And that in Trump's America, his son would not have had the opportunity to sacrifice his life to save those of his countrymen.

    He and his wife dug up their son to be used for morbid emotional manipulation in a straw man attack. I have no idea why they would do such a thing, especially since Hillary is the candidate who sent their son to kill Muslims and die in the process.

    I forget, how did the FBI describe Hillary's latest escapade in public office?

    How does that disgraceful and embarrassing performance merit a promotion?

    Only in Washington DC is being a complete screwup at everything, and then lying about your actions over and over again, seen as a "qualification".

    You mean the only one who voted to go to war that then has the guts to be the candidate?
    She is equally responsible as are the other 77 Senators with all but one Republican voting to go to war in the Senate but with 21 Democratic Senators voting against the Iraq action. I guess the Republicans that voted yes are to cowardly to stand up for what they believed to be at the time. Typical and expected...

    I tend to agree with sjm's statement. I mean look at history, the statement fits.

    It fit with Bush/Cheney, it fit with Reagan...

    Enjoy your Iraq war supporter and new neocon favorite.

    At one time you were against that action and opposed those who were responsible.

    Now you are for them and you don't like being reminded about those facts because of what it makes you look like.

    Most amusing.

    You are searching for perfection and will never find it.

    I am going with the more qualified, not perfect, candidate.

    On Friday, Trump was on the defensive with others, too, calling retired four-star Marine Gen. John Allen, who spoke at the DNC and led troops in Afghanistan, a "failed general" at a rally in Denver. "You know who he is? He's a failed general," Trump told the crowd. "He was the general fighting ISIS. I would say he hasn't done so well, right?"

    In Colorado Springs, Colorado, Friday afternoon, Trump repeatedly called out the event's fire marshal for not allowing more people into the venue. "Hey, maybe they're a Hillary person. Could that be possible? Probably," Trump said of the marshal, complaining that the attendance limit was "unfair." "Then you wonder why we're going to hell. That's why we're going to hell."

    The marshal, Brett Lacey, was named Civilian of the Year in February for his work after the shooting at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic in November.

    It may be a fine line but there is support for the Military and then there is support for Veteran Benefits. Two different things. I had quite a few family members in the military- it was about evenly split between Democrat and Republican. I don't know where this thing got started that if you are in the military you are automatically a Republican. Every nation on earth has a military, regardless of that country's politics. Just because you find a general that is a Democrat means nothing.
