I don't care how well intentioned this thread is -- it will turn ugly.

Me, I'm leaning for Johnson

I'm pretty sure it was meant more as a joke than a serious comment. Although, I've always found it fascinating that people in other countries follow our politics.

Someone from the US, who now lives in Australia, was giving me a hard time about Trump and that her vote as a Bernie supporter wouldn't be wasted (she doesn't like Hillary, but wants a Woman (her use of a capital W, not mine) in the White House.

I asked if she would prefer that someone across the ocean were able to control what she can do, but she didn't respond to that.

Voting from outside of the country carries the same weight as living here- if someone chooses to leave for reasons other than a job or family situation, I'm not sure I like their vote as much as someone who stays.

She says rich people, but we already know they get out of paying their share through tax loopholes.

WHAT CHOICE DOES SHE REALLY REPRESENT???????

She talks about the wealthy as if they're a different group. Obama said "...I do think that at some point, you've made enough money...." and she clearly doesn't go along with that tune, because the net worth of her and Slick Willie was $110 Million in 2015. When, in her mind, is someone 'wealthy'?

I saw that people were going nuts because Trump's wife was wearing a $2000 coat, yet the tarp Hillary was wearing a couple of weeks ago was in the area of $12,500. No double standard there, eh?

I know someone who's wealthy. Trust fund wealth. Lots of money. Leaves financial paperwork laying all over the freaking house. I really don't care because that's her life, not mine, and I'm not entitled to any of it. At one point, we got onto the topic of taxes and she said "If I'm paying a lot of taxes, I guess it means I'm making money". I'm pretty sure she uses every loophole available to her and when she votes, it isn't for Republicans.

Me personally, I think we need to throw all the bums out, both sides, set term limits, and start over. Make it actually to "serve your country" again and get rid of the career politicians.

And limit pensions, expenses while in office and afterward (Obama just vetoed a Bill that would limit expense accounts for past POTUS and the Democrats haven't been the worst offenders) and they should no longer determine their own benefits.

Most horrifying acceptance speech or... rant ever. To see the anger and hatred from the ignorant masses was beyond disturbing. Juliani, Trumps stupid kids, teh crowd with white people holding up Latinos for Trump... It is all so ugly.

Idiocracy is here.

He's doing what any good dictator would do, put fear into the people. What he wants is to scare everyone. According to his speech, he's more powerful than God because he's the ONLY ONE that can fix everything. A year into his presidency we'll see statues of him everywhere, you won't be allowed to say anything against him. He admires Putin, that says where your freedom will go.

Heil Trump, Heil Trump, Heil Trump!

He is channeling Mussolini. I've been around a little longer that a lot of you guys. He even admits to being a fan of Mussolini. Wake up guys. Look at his history of failed businesses, fact check his speech. He caters to, and sells fear then says basically, I'm your daddy. He is a snake oil salesman. How could ANY of you go with the Orange Raccoon?

I'm curious about this "crooked Hillary" stuff. Is there anything to it that has been proven to be true? I know the GOP was counting on Benghazi (turned out there wasn't anything there) and then the email (poor judgement at best, but nothing there). So what is there that can be backed up with facts?

Bengazzi--- Well under Bush there were 16 embassies attacked and over 60 killed. What did the multi million dollar Bengazzi panel learn? Nothing, other than the Republicans cut security.

Do any of you recall when Carl Rove wiped clean over 22 million whitehouse emails when Bush was there?

Did any of you fact check the Orange Raccoon's ramblings?

Well, being the most powerful country in the world MIGHT make people in other countries care a bit.

I have a few of friends in other countries who understand our politics and history much better than many of us.

You should hear their opinions of "The Orange Raccoon".

How many of those embassies were attacked AFTER we had intel that indicated a threat and the Sec'y of State denied their requests for help, then lied about why the attack occurred? Reaction to a video? GMAFB!

This^^^^

Add to that....fix the outrageous illegal gerrymandering going on in the statehouses. And the immoral influence of PAC's and Super PACs on campaign contributions.

All the worry about national elections is just tilting at windmills until we make politicians actually beholden to their true constituencies again.
