Id offer a 3rd. An honest leader. Not just that, folks need to see what has been done to Europe and ask if the pie in the sky baloney being sold via globalism will work.

It wont, ideals never do. People are inherently evil imo.

Very few have actual muster

Nobody running for office, nor any foolish ideology will succeed, however conservative ideals will delay the inevitable far longer than liberalism...i am neither in the end...i am Britain looking for balance of power in the early 20th

This crap has left the station as it were. You really don't think talking about this is what we need to worry about right now?

I'd rather go down fighting for my independence than become part of some globalist farce like the EU is trying to turn Europe into.

The experts do not know better than I do how to run my life. At best they know numbers and I am uncomfortable with the idea of being the outlier sacrificed to their mythical "greater good."



Yes, this scene is a joke, but this is really what it's like. The village is very idyllic ... unless you don't march to the beat of the robed town council. Then they can remove you for "the greater good."


Just thought I'd let you know that the EU dream is a United States of Europe to basically turn us into what you are with Federal overreach.


Globalism on your side of the pond is not the same as ours.

The wet dream of the EU is to be more like the USA.
That sort of Globalism won't affect you.


It'll be trade deals on your side. Not an amalgamation of Nations.

As I have already said, it was just to point out that we can't say that he is pro choice or pro gay as it was said earlier.
It's all on the first page.

I and I do think we should be talking about it if we want to talk as if Trump is some a guy that wants freedom for all.

Don't you mean "right center neocon globalist" when describing Hillary?

In her leaked secret speech to her wealthy elite donors ahe clearly stated she identifies withnthe center right. And she continued the neocon globalist agenda as much as Bush did.

Because she is nothing but a pandering politician that says things to get votes but you can go back and see where she was totally against many of the things she says today.

There are two choices, which one is better for America in 2016 ?

A Liberal Democratic Globalist ?

A Centrist Republican Nationalist ?

Get rid of all the negative propaganda from both sides that is being pilled as high Mount Rushmore on a daily basis.
And just answer that simple question and you basically come to terms with what do to on voting day.


I pick (C) a real candidate for the first time in over a decade.

You laid out all of that very nicely, sounds like a pretty good idea, not sure how we are going to pay for it all, but it actually sounds like a yuuuuuuugely great plan.

If you were running on that platform, I think you would probably be about 30 points ahead in the polls.

Centrist Republican Nationalist?

Um. How exactly is Trump a Centrist?

Try Far-Right Republican Nationalist. It fits a lot better.

Also, "Globalist" for the Liberal option is currently used as a slur by far right folks including Trump/Breitbart. So you need to define your terms and step away from words that have developed a pejorative meaning among at least one strong ATS contingent.

So, yeah, you've created what you think is an "objective reality" and I'm rejecting the notion that it is at all objective.

So no, that is not at all how I would define this election. It is, to my eyes, a strawman.

If you are against all of those things, and I could go by each and everyone of them, how do you describe yourself? American is not at the top of my list.

I describe myself as an conservative US citizen who knows that the majority of those issues are not the federal government's responsibility.

Obviously they are not popular because Clinton is not 30 points ahead in the polls.

You are correct in that there is no way to responsibly pay for them.
