Heck no. Just because someone votes for you does not mean you will do what they want you to do. In fact if the vote for you regardless of what you do why the heck would you?

But yeah. Would not touch any of the republican candidates to be honest. Heck I rather raise Nixon from the dead and vote for him.

On the democrats side is actually easier. Sanders is the one I would vote for. He got a good track record. He actually has ideas that are aligned with my ideas. But then again I am not a American citizen so I guess that a moot point.

Nixon was an excellent President. I'd vote him in as well.

How can someone who pretty much grown up in the establishment, A rich guy from a rich family be considered anti-establishment? It just stupid rhetoric.

Our country has developed a hardcore political class. I'm sure your country has probably experienced something similar. Trump is rich and well-connected, but he isn't part of the political class, which makes him an outsider. Now, is there much of a difference between the business class and the political class? Maybe? Maybe not? But Trump being a businessman instead of a politician is why he gets called "anti-establishment".

And I mean... he's ripping up the GOP plank by plank right now which is pretty anti-establishment.

But yeah go SAND!

Meh... We do not really have any political dynasties in the same way here. Sure we have career politicians. But that's not really a bad thing I say. And they tend to have at least had a background outside of politics to before that.

People aren't voting for Trump because of his sexy hairdo, they're voting for him because they like what he says he'll do. They like that they've got someone who's proposing a more protectionist economy after years of getting fed the scraps of minor cultural issues and free trade agreements.

Too bad his tax plan is nuts
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Trump nearly got attacked at a rally today.  Listen to the crowd.  For or against Trump, we're at a point where people want blood.  And I'm increasingly worried that they're going to get it.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Trump is a really assassinatable sort of a man.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Well based on what he says I would not vote for him. He is not saying stuff that really benefits the working class from what I have seen. And I do not expect anyone to vote for his Hairdo. :P

But I guess some people do think that protectionism is going to save the economy. Never done so in the past. But not everyone is well versed in economic history. (And is not like USA have not tried that a few times fairly recently to at least to a small extent.) And no I am not pro free trade ether. I am pro fair trade. There is a difference.

I've played some Europa Universalis so I think I have a handle on this free trade/tariffs thing



We need to export more slaves to Constantinople I think.

In the current climate, if someone was going to kill a politician it'd probably be a liberal retard that has fooled themselves into thinking murder is an acceptable response.

Depends who's currently on top I think.

If Bernie wins I could see some Bible-thumper taking a potshot because he thinks he's the antichrist.

There always insane people out there on each side of the political spectrum. Even a lot of insane people who are not on the spectrum. Last political murder here in Sweden was carried out by a simply a insane person.
