Donald Trump is leading the polls for the Republican nomination.

I don't even like the guy whatsoever, and yet I can tell you he's the only interesting candidate running for president.

Carson, who has second place behind Trump in most polls, is much too unenthusiastic and frankly ignorant to be an effective president.

Hillary, even though she's on my side of the political spectrum, leans a little too close to business interests and just doesn't seem that different from Obama in terms of perspective. Not to mention it seems everything she says has been carefully coached from her advisors.

Sanders, who I would pick if he was actually going to win the Democratic nomination, is too clutzy and government-friendly. The only crowd he has a lead on are college kids.

If Trump wasn't running for president, this would be hands down the most unbearably boring election in U.S. history. No one would go to the polls because the candidates seem like they've been cut out with a cookie cutter.

But if Trump becomes president, it would be a disaster. Our country would essentially roll back years of cultural progress towards becoming a respectably tolerant nation. The same thing with Carson, except even worse as he's terrible at foreign policy and is a one-man gaffe machine. Hillary would basically change nothing as, like I said before, she pretty much as the same brain as Obama's. Hillary's situation would be the same for a President Sanders, except even less would get done due to his extremism.

Overall, this is a disappointing election. But what's most disappointing is the fact that a sizeable chunk of America is eating up Trump's bullcrap hook-line-and sinker.

I'm starting to think we're all just stupid ducks, following our duck mother in a line, while she's leading us towards the abyss.

People seem to be sick of the status quo and the BS 'hope and change' rhetoric. I doubt I will vote for any Republican or Democrat, but like you say...at least Trump is interesting.

If someone being interesting means they're qualified to be president then maybe we should elect this guy:

Mother of God ... You're a genius!

Watch out Trump! Here comes the only guy on Earth more interesting than you ...

...and his campaign motto will be "stay thirsty my friends"

Politics is a pendulum. Push it too far one way and it swings back hard the other.

This is what 8 years of runaway progressivism buys you.

It's interesting that you don't even mention the candidate with the most sensible foreign policy, tax plan, and domestic policy - not to mention the most consistent and principled voting history and strongest champion of liberty..

I think this happened to his dad the past couple of election years too.

You know I'd like to condone Trump on some of the thoughtless things he has said...but when I compare them with the thoughtless actions of his opponents
I have to reason...what's worse....
As far as I know none of Trumps words have gotten anyone killed.
Can't quite say the same about his dem opponent

I don't know how anyone who claims to be a conservative or a patriot can support someone who feels we should tag Muslims like the Nazis did to the Jews. He also thinks we should shut down the internet in certain areas to combat terrorism, and is not calling for denying immigration based on religion.

This man is a modern day Hitler - and his supports mindless Nazis. This is how it all started back in the 1930s.

Seriously? Come on based on what you've read on the internet, heard from a bought and paid for media?

Douche or not, absolutely ALL runners on every ticket are criminals and liars...so who do you like? The fact is they are playing us all like a tuba.

I'd take Ralph Nader given the opportunity

I'm not looking for the most interesting candidate; rather, the most qualified. Has anyone ever made a visit to their local mechanic to take care of their triple bypass? Interesting, for certain; qualified, not even close.

Is there somebody out there that doesn't want to fix the
whole spacetime irregularity we call Terra in one term? I
haven't heard from him since Jimmy Carter. How about
someone who admits to his mortality and operates that way?

I am not saying I agree with your reference to Hitler, but I will say things have gotten so bad in America under the last two Presidents that people are getting desperate.

GODWIN's LAW FAIL


All cred earned up until this point on this topic has gone down the tube on it, If your trying to sway any type of opinion this comparison lost all respect you had earned by bringing up the Ron Paul.

A mindless and nonsensical argument from a mindless and nonsensical Trump supporter. This is an APT comparison, not some overexxagerated attempt to compare something that is unlike Nazis to Nazis. Forcing people to identify based on race or religion is Nazi like.

Your attempt to make me look bad failed miserably because you failed to misunderstand the very "law" card you pulled. Smart guy.

If that's true, then why is Clinton and Sanders both beating Trump in the polls?

Because there are less Dems in the running. Once the GOP candidates start to thin out you'll see things begin to balance and give a more accurate measure.

You don't get out much do you? All of the things I've claimed can be heard coming out of Trump's own filthy mouth. I would encourage you to fact check before rebutting.

Good day.

Wrong answer, You obviously have not seen my other posts on how to Beat Trump.


The whole gist of my prior posts was you do not attack the guy, you get his name out of the news, you force him to spend money to even be seen. Instead the Media keeps at him like teasing a rabid dog and the fact he fights back instead of rolling over and playing dead pulls more people to him. I think I am the only one here who has compared him to Zaphod Beeblebrox.
