I do like Rubio and just don't happen to agree with what you said about him. But as far as the others are concerned, you're absolutely correct! They do indeed campaign on hate and authoritarianism. Cruz, Sanders, and Clinton are all very bad news indeed! Trump is in a class all by himself. He is the worst bad news of all campaigning on hate, racism, and bigotry.

While I actually like Rand Paul as a person and respect his views, I can't support him because his isolationist policies are unrealistic in today's dangerous world in my opinion.

Over all the problem is your engagement. None of this has any value but for a select few, your engagement and constant engagement helps them move along, in fact it has created it, and this is a few steps away from becoming a global fascist network in fact it is pretty much so right now.

Now if you really wanted to get things done if all of you were to just quit, because then they would all be out of a job...And that scares them. They may even offer you candidates that aren't so dopey as the current ones, from all I seen only a few seem to even be considered normal.

Optimism vs Pessimism. >What are you like 5yrs old? This ain't high school were we all get to cheer for the basketball team, it may have serious and oh ya deadly consequences. America has been running on the mass amount of wealth and accumulation of previous cycles, but all that can come down and a end, and fast. As it always has many many times before, in fact it has happens each and every time in every civilization out there. Its practically inevitable.

If anything you all should every last body not participate in this facade and just quit. Why would you pay and support something which has a detrimental effect as a whole on you and a greater part of any populous? That's the definition of digging your own grave. Its not about being a pessimist or optimist its not even about hope. Its about does a thing work, or is it just a broken circle jerk of a system. And to answer your question, its the second.

So hope all you want, but you are supporting your own and generations later demise. This is simply about does a thing work? Or is it broken? An easy question to answer, everything else falls to the wayside till you figure that out. And if they cant figure that out or fix it. Then what use is any of it? Whats the point of paying them or supporting this whole system then? For #z and giglez? For the hope of it? For the pleasure of paying for it all as it grounds everything into the ground?

But I suppose when the time runs out and it all comes tumbling down, you can always blame god or something.

I choose optimism over pessimism. I don't believe problems disappear by ignoring them. I'll remain hopeful that we can do better and will continue to try. Stay engaged!

So really who is ignoring the problems here now? I put about as much time into this political as a grasshopper does playing the flute. Which is to say none at all. But even with my no effort I think I can see the issues here better then you. You may either want to get more ingaged so you can get a more up close and personal view. That or take breath and step away from it all, look at it from another angle and from a wider view. See how things look then.

True. I hear I'm a democrat and want a democrat in the white house or I'm a republican and want a republican in the white house.

Well I'm a United States citizen and would someday wish to vote for someone regardless of party who represents all the people not just some stinking party, or banker or corporation or union. Money in general.
The system is broke, we are broke.

We do have a broken system indeed! I favor an independent moderate party where a voter can cast a ballot for a candidate who is neither strictly democrat nor strictly republican, but rather is a combination of the best elements of both and who would govern from the center. Such a candidate would be capable of tending to the interests of all the American people.

Sorry but I can't agree. Just quitting and leaving the arena will not make them all quit, especially not Trump and Sanders. Rather it will help insure that the coming election for President will come down to the disastrous Trump v Sanders, or the alternative, the nearly as bad Trump v Hillary Clinton.

Well then there. Like I said above or before. Just pick the best of the worst and hope they don't # up to badly. Hasen't that been the way and moto for many a generations now?

After all that is the best you all can hope for about now. And what if Trump and Sanders may be the best of the best in that bunch? What then?

Besides the whole thing, and were all just living on borrowed time.

If Trump and Sanders, who clearly are the worst of the worst anywhere, turn out to be the best out there, then we're all in big trouble indeed. Especially after the last term we've had to endure with Obama.

But there is still time for things to turn around, super Tuesday is ahead, and many folks have yet to vote. We have to remain optimistic.

Well whatever and yes Trump and Sanders just may be the cream of that crop. I have seen nor heard anything on anybody else that would say different. Pick your poison, I suppose.

Trump and Sanders are absolutely not the cream of the crop by a long shot. John Kasich and Marco Rubio are far better choices as presidential candidates as both have concrete and effective ideas regarding the many major issues facing the country.

Either the right wing extremism we'd get from Trump or the left wing extremism we'd get from Sanders would be a prescription for disaster.

Oh really? Prove it.

I admit I have not watched this at all, but I know one name on that list the Rubio guy. To say I am far from impressed is an understatement.

He's the second best candidate out there, second only to Kasich.

Guys, guys guys....

The thing is, politics is a messy and dirty business. You have to deal with corrupt and greedy private industry titans, shady foreign diplomats and other corrupt politicians who crave power. Let it be known:


There, it's been said. Now, there are varying degrees of "good vs. bad" among politicians. Some are better than others...usually, the more corrupt and underhanded a politician, the more "achievements" they can claim. They've had more bills passed, they've got more done in congress...


Because they make back room deals, screw other folks over, take bribes ect...

So, the most "effective" politicians are the most dirty, out of an entire hen house of dirty people.

People claim that Sanders hasn't accomplished much in his career as a politician....

And you know what? That, to me, is VERY TELLING.

There is much corruption in Washington, but it's a stretch to say that all politicians are dirty or corrupt. Sanders hasn't accomplished much but that's not because he is necessarily free of corruption.To imply the latter is also a stretch! But to say Sanders is a socialist whose policies would bankrupt America? That's not a stretch. It's the truth!

Most want the state to serve only themselves and who they care about, and will choose the party that will most likely do that, as you can see by the responses in your thread. It's all identity politics nowadays. No one cares about principles. They care about themselves.

This is another reason the voting system is such a failure.....the people voting are doing so for their own personal gain, it is a selfish vote often disguised as "better for my country"......

Whats worse is Voting is nothing more than giving the people the illusion of choice...

Or no choice at all such as Donald Trump v Hillary Clinton. The only choice here, of course, is neither of them. But NO to Trump under any and all circumstances!!

My dad likes Kasich. What's he at... 4% or something? Why even bother caring about politics at all if the guy you support has literally no chance of going anywhere.

Good for your dad. Kasich is the best candidate for the job out there despite his low poll numbers. We have to continue caring and to be engaged or we wind up just leaving things to the people who don't know any better. That increases the risk of a Donald Trump coming to power. Heaven help us all if that happens!
