If you'll excuse me I have to go weigh the worth of a continued attempt to have a long lived life or just bail and have short one filled to the brim with hard drugs and a lack of care for the world. One sure is looking better and better

Dude, come on.  Never have this much riding on a single politician.  You should know this.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Idk. I guess it's what the politician represents.

I feel like the progressive movement has capitulated to the Clinton wing. She will act as though she is now the progressive champion and her ideals are now progressive ideals. This will turn off progressives and further disenfranchise voters, something I'm sure hrc doesn't mind, which will just screw the movement, leaving the establishment sitting pretty as feared
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

The choices this year are Worse, Worst, and Weird with no chance of winning.  That's been obvious for a long time.  And there's plenty of places to push for causes and issues you believe in other than the presidential level.

...I keep trying to be optimistic here.  I wanted to work in politics, and did so for a while.  But I can't see myself getting back in given the current climate and now I don't know what to do with my life.  I just can't stand talk of giving up, I guess.

I was drawn to Bernie because he represented a shock to the system if elected. I'm not on board with whatever progressives have decided they believe today. That movement is scary, somewhat selfish, and totally lacking in self-awareness. No thanks, progressives.

Gary Johnson seems to be the ticket for me. But I mean, I knew that a year and a half ago. :U

MAGA

To me there's only one issue and it's climate change and Bernie was the only candidate to acknowledging it for the current threat that it is. No future, no present.

I don't believe either of these other two candidates will go far enough or set us up for success next decade. I think we're ****ed, going to be bled dry, and when **** hits the fan and the world starts to sink the mega wealthy will insulate themselves and watch the world die

Sounds like you're going to need more than just a revolver.
Not a winner anymore.

Fakir as in a Muslim ascetic?

Why would someone make that comparison, though? If it's intentional, why? What is she alluding to about him?

Maybe it'd make more sense if a Muslim who takes vows of poverty wasn't the exact opposite of Trump.

Uh oh Hillary!!

Trump has been changing his tactics somewhat. Being quieter for longer spans of time. HAS THE PIVOT OCCURRED?



Remember when Jim Webb killed a guy?

And then the polls will go crazy in the aftermath of the Republican convention.  And then they'll go crazy in the aftermath of the Democratic convention.  And the first debate.  And any number of other things between now and election day.

But you're right, I haven't seen anything outrageously stupid from Trump since the Bernie endorsement.  Maybe I just didn't look hard enough.

With the amount of media scrutiny Trump and Clinton receive you shouldn't have to look hard. All you have to do is be alive.
