I'm starting to see those headlines again that ask, "Does Donald Trump REALLY want to be President?"


I have the same suspicions...

It would be sweet to see Johnson and Stein gather enough support in the polls to be a part of the debates...

At this time, it's Clinton vs Trump.... having Gary & Jill on stage just may give the folks a chance to vote FOR someone...

instead of AGAINST someone... I don't know anyone who has voted against, that left feeling good about it...

as always...

YMMV

I agree 110%. Bottom line is to stop HILLARY and her silly "Together Strong" mantra.

I agree, Donald Trump careless if he becomes president or not, that attitude is what keeps him from been so sarcastic to what the career political rats in this nation are doing, like Hillary, this woman wants to be a president soo bad that killing in her way to the white house is no longer an option.

That is how bad she wants power.

Hillary is sweating for her presidential chance against Trump that doesn't have to sweat anything.

He may have. But the whole "im a veteran victim" shield is used a lot.

There is so much entitlement in the veteran community. We demand so much just for wearing a uniform when all we are really entitled to is what was put in our contracts with the government and nothing more.

It's selective outrage. No one seemed all that outraged when Chris Kyle and his wife were dragged through the mud. No one seemed to care when liberal rags called snipers cowards on the battlefield.

No one on ATS seems to give a # when veterans like me get called killers and murderers and the like. It's only when it is politically convenient that people give a # about us.

So save the fake outrage. Save it.



I recall an enormous amount of outrage regarding Chris Kyle, plenty of it on this website, and many seemed to imply he should be beyond criticism because he's a vet.

Selective outrage indeed, something Trump, and his supporters specialise in.

I think we'd have a criminal/jailable action if it turns out that Donald Trump was just having fun, because he was getting bored as a jet-setting billionaire. That would be the ultimate "meddling" in a Presidential election, and I'd gladly sign a petition to have him jailed for life..and then some.

regardless if Trump wins in November, he was a wakeup call for the folks... he defeated 16 GOP candidates, most, are bought and paid for and wanted to be the man/woman in the corrupt oval office...

Many here, on ATS, on either side of the US political aisle, have been frustrated, whether it was BUSH in ATS' infancy, to OBAMA the past 8 years...

Nice to be in a place for free thinkers, we all have our moments, but we can also see with clear vision, those who come here trying to continue the charade...

IMO.. it's not Left/Right... both are complicit.. and laugh at those of us who parrot their positions...

I want the lifers OUT... I want those with the power to TAX, feel the effects of those taxes they pass, I want those who pander to those with lower wages, to serve the folks that voted them in, and serve their term in Congress for a 0 paycheck...

Being in Congress isn't and wasn't intended to be a ticket to a comfortable life..... it was intended to be a check to the executive and judicial branch...

Pass a budget and go home to your state... rassin frassin... /rant

Oh, Jack is not rant, I do sense frustration, at our political system of the recycle trash that is brought to us by both political parties and the big interest that stand behind them.

Yes while many that are used to the poster political candidates can not stand a new comer like Trump with his frantic and ever cruel antics, I find it refreshing, is been quite a show, this will be the political election that will never be forgotten.

We have come to a time in our political system that is mean to open the eyes of the population.

This elections will be very interesting.

Now as for the VFW slams Trump over Khan and Gold Star families, they are all full of crap, using their death son a true hero, for political gain, my husband is a Foreign war veteran and retired, so my father and father in law, they careless

You know why because at the end is nothing but political game, Khan is knee deep in the Clintons butts, yes they are up to the neck on the Clinton foundation.

He shot himself in the foot, then promptly stuffed it in his mouth this time. The jackass has to learn somehow that "no filter" is political suicide.


Where he really shot himself in the foot was when he said building a successful casino was as big a sacrifice as what these families went through. Or perhaps that time he said his "personal Vietnam" was in trying to dodge STD's while on a college deferment.

Soldiers and military families didn't take too kindly to either of those.

Never quite understood why people freak out so much over Trump wanting to keep this country safe... If Hillary was making these comments, she'd be lauded.


Every candidate wants to make the country safe. Some have more realistic plans for that than others.

This Khan fellow was a Trap by the democrats. Trump needs to stop hitting back at everyone and then say I give my condolences to you and your families loss. That would had been better.


If he said that, they would have blasted him for not caring enough.

It wouldn't have mattered what he said.

He could have said he'd start a scholarship fund for muslims in the sons name and the press would claim he was pandering.



True enough. maybe just not saying anything at all was better. But since Khan wants to bring up ethics maybe he should be revealed to have connections to the clinton foundation by following his employment and money trail. Then get trumps friends at the gosspi rags to print it as a 100 percent guaranteed not made up story. Make sure to emphasize that on the headline.

I know that quite well. Its interesting. I sponsored a DAV for years, supporting him and taking him to the VA hospital. Where I live now I'm quite close to the VFW. They hate Trump and abhor Democrats and are just.............mad as hell. (They're not young so that's kind of a default emotion with them anyway).

Oh I'm sure they are. Most of these organizations are corrupt as hell at the national level just as the Democrats are.

I was speaking from my experience with our local VFW.

Remind me WHO it was again that IS STILL trying to ban MUSLIMS from owning GUNS ?

Oh yeah the very same people khan stumped for.

No fly No buy.

The only people that get put on that list are MUSLIMS.

Gold star for CLinton and company.

Definitely and hopefully a wake up call that keeps people awake for every election between now and the next presidential race.

Yet, I think the real wake up call will come in the next 4 years. Whichever one gets elected will likely bring disaster and controversy.

Worst part is that Liberals and Conservatives, liberty lovers and communist supporters, all had MUCH better candidates to vote for. And yet these two come out on top. Complete disgrace and embarrassment.

I know how older veterans feel I have two of them in their eighties, my father and my father in law.

Both rely heavily in the veterans hospitals and both believe that they earned that right, I don't blame them and never ever discuss politics with any of them.

Oh please.

Liberals love to rail against soldiers. Then they dig up the graves of my fellow soldiers just to sling the mud when it's politically expedient.
