Agreed, Bernie was the closest shot.

And to you're earlier points was sabotaged mainly by MSM. They labeled him a socialist and gave him the same amount of airtime as Jeb Bush. Jeb had no chance and yet Bernie in my mind was beating Hillary considering the circumstances.

Bernie did give me a little hope as he was grass roots. Also proved to be quite the thorn in the ass for the establishment, DNC, and Clinton Camp.

Also with some of the Podesta emails we saw Hillary collaborated with MSM to prop up Trump seeing as he would be an easy defeat. Whether or not he was in on it is debatable, the idea Clinton wasn't using him is not IMO.

Paul suffered the same deal as Sanders did this primary... media simply didn't give him the attention and screen time he needed, it's like the goal was already set, and even though I oppose Paul on some key areas, I thought of him to be the most honorable and moral choice that the American public could have made that election... but he got sidetracked.

And yes, even with the very little screen time he had, he was so well spoken and precise in every answer, that people could understand what he was saying and at the same time he would deliver those answers from the heart.
Something Clinton has not managed to do one single time... the reason of course being that we now know that all her responses are media trained to perfection before each apperance and what makes her fater is her not remembering the line.

Sanders had the same power and enthusiasm as Paul did, which again beckons the question how the hell they managed to sidetrack him so effectively?! For the love the universe Sanders had more followers than Clinton did at any rally! What is up with that!!

Why are the American people so dead set on falling to their knees and buy all that bull# that both the Obama, Clinton and Trump campaign has thrown at them?????????????? I DONT GET IT!!

For two election cycles you have had so clear and obvious good choices, that would hands down give you a more homogenous society and a far far better relationship with the rest of the world... which you need as long as you keep policing it for your own benefit.

But no... you chose / are choosing the candidates most tightly connected to big money instead of the one standing by the broader population.

Welcome Idiocracy... have fun with your bating.

This election is a complete and utter farce. I really hope this is all bread and circuses and merely a way to keep us all docile and believing we have genuine options when it comes to our leaders and what they represent because the alternative is just terrifying.

It is terrifying to many people. Easily identified by their absolute denial
that the world they live in, isn't exactly as they have been led and therefore
perceive it to be. Even in the face of constant bombardments of evidence
that must be excused some how for the rest of their days. All because
reality is far to much them. Very sad.

1a. There won't be a civil war here because of Hillary winning. The far right wing always pouts when they lose the presidential elections. Then they dry their eyes, get over it, and move on to the next anti-left wing "scandal".

1b. In the case that there's no 2nd American civil war over Trump losing the presidential race, this won't lead to WW3 either. At most, I think the situation in Syria will grow into a larger proxy war. But even the Cold War didn't lead to a direct "hot war" between the USSR and NATO. And that's when the USSR was far stronger than today's Russia & both "sides" were backing dozens of revolutions, insurgencies, counter insurgencies, and civil wars around the world at the time.

2a. Trump's not going to win. He's going to get trounced. But even if he somehow wins, he won't actually setup a special prosecutor against his friend Hillary. It's funny and sad how readily people will believe a politician as long as that politician says what they want to hear.

2b. Let's suppose Trump hired some special prosecutor to investigate Hillary and a lot of stuff was uncovered. What makes you think the govt would declassify that info and release it to the public? For example, the FBI still has 10s of thousands of pages of documents on Dr. MLK that aren't slated to be released until 2027. And he's been dead since 1968! But somehow, the govt is going to release all of the info they find on the Clintons and all of their powerful allies in the span of 4 years?

As for Ron Paul, I still wouldn't have voted for him. I like some aspects of his foreign policy (such as shutting down our military empire) and I'd like more regular and open audits of the FED. But I'd never support most of his domestic policies.

American voters never vote for the sincere and honest candidates. Many voters only vote along party lines. It's why this country is so divisive and we're always left with voting for the lesser of two evils.

Why can't we all just get along?

Totally not fake.
