The sooner the American populace has realized our government has gone completely rogue the better off we'll be.
As it stands, I suspect that will happen AFTER our country completely collapses (likely intentional) so the rich #ers around the world can reap the rewards, reform us and start again with the rape of ignorant "citizen" drones.
Good #ing luck people.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Another day, another thread, another empty tissue box. The outrage is actually amusing.

That's what you expect, because you have listened to Hillary's speeches a little too much. Plus, it doesn't help that you also believe in everything bad you read about mister Trump in your MSM.
My advice to you is to listen to some of mister Trump's speeches before jumping to a conclusion.
You might actually like what you hear...or are you one of those people who "honestly don't support hillary", but will give her their vote?
The Republican and Democratic presidential candidates have responded to the attack in France with phone-in appearances on US TV networks, offering divergent views over what they both called a “war” against terrorists.
Donald Trump, who has postponed the unveiling of his vice presidential running mate in response to the attack in Nice, indicated he would be prepared to seek a formal declaration of war from the US Congress and commit ground troops to the conflict.
Asked by Fox News host Bill O’Reilly if NATO troops should now launch a ground and air offensive against unspecified terrorist targets. “I would say that would be just fine,” Trump reportedly replied.
He said “I would, I would” when asked if he would seek a formal declaration of military action from the US Congress. “This is war,” Trump continued. “If you look at it, this is war. Coming from all different parts. And frankly it’s war, and we’re dealing with people without uniforms. In the old days, we would have uniforms. You would know who you’re fighting.”
Hillary Clinton was asked about Trump’s comments during her own appearance on CNN around one our later. She provided a more cautious reply, using similarly bellicose language but questioning the wisdom of being drawn into a ground war against the Islamic State.
“I think it is clear we are at war with these terrorist groups and what they represent. It is a different kind of war and we need to be smart about how we wage it and win it. So I think we need to look at all possible approaches to doing just that.” Asked who, precisely, the US was at war against, Clinton said: We’re at war against radical jihadists who use Islam to recruit and radicalize others in order to pursue their evil agenda. It is not so important what we call these people as what we do about them.”
The former secretary of state added that the enemy was “an ideology and not a nation state”, adding that it was misleading to refer to the current conflict as “World War III”. “It is a very different kind of war,” she said, adding that Isis would “love to draw the United States into a ground war in Syria. They actually think the end times would be hastened if we had some confrontation in that region. So we’ve got to be smart about this, not get pushed or pulled into taking action that doesn’t have the positive effect it needs to have.”
Clinton advocated an “intelligence surge”, better cooperation among allies in the fight against terrorism and greater efforts to combat radicalization online.
