I'm going to have some fun here since I just started reading this thread and have quite a few opinions on it.

Agree with the responsibility part. Disagree that Trump is less war hungry than Hillary in this race. Hillary voted for the Iraq war on low levels of evidence. Low enough for the real 'smart' people (Obama & Bernie) voted against it. Hillary also was not in favour of Obama doing the 'talk' agreement with Iran prior to the nuclear deal that has paved a potential way for peace. When Obama announced this, Hillary had basically said, "NO, you cannot talk to Iran without pre-conditions... Obama is Naive into thinking that this is even a possibility" (Hillary has subsequently 'flopped' and stated that she was involved in the nuclear peace deal - a blatant lie). Hillary also voted for the patriot act, supported regime change and intervention in Libya, Syria etc. The list goes on, of all the atrocities against humanity she has committed.

Trump so far - has done nothing, and most likely will get military advisors to tell him everything. Military advisors who are likely no better than the ones Hillary would pick.

You guys realize Trump is stupid, right? It's pretty easy...just vote for the smart people.
Chance's are Trump has some kind of undiagnosed mental illness. Is it okay for the president to play shot for shot with someone that clearly has his nuts and bolts not working?

Yes, Trump has ripped off hundreds/thousands of people. But so has Hillary. Hillary (despite what she says NOW). In addition to supporting the de-regulation of banks and supporting NAFTA, she also played a huge role in the development of TPP. All of which have taken many of American jobs OUT of their country into India, the Philippines, China etcetera, to increase corporate/CEO profits while actually destroying lives of the middle/working class citizens. Trump may have destroyed thousands of lives, but Hillary could have arguably destroyed millions.

With the last point - vote for the smart person. Yes. But not after the way she, the DNC and the mainstream media colluded against the best Candidate against Trump. They steam rolled him, and 'rigged' the election in Hillary's favour. So Fuck Hillary - I don't like people that don't play fair game.

The Obamacare plan is a joke. It sounded good while he was running for president, but it's been watered down to the likes of a homeopathic remedy. It's so fimble that one insurance company wanting to back out now could tumble the entire system because Obama did NOT back a PUBLIC OPTION like he promised!!! For those that still like watching CNN:

BINGO -
This election cycle has been extremely eye opening into the huge amounts of corruption that exists within the political system. Bernie was the best option, now that he's out, its up to Jill Stein or Gary Johnson () to change things up a bit. And yes, even Trump might be able to change things up. It takes more than one person to destroy an entire country. Trump coming into office would result in lots of serious mistakes... enough to hopefully give him the boot out of office before his term is up to put someone into place that can actually relate to the regular Joe Blow American.

Nigel Farage is a dumb fucking cunt who is also ball-less. Called for change then when change is about to happen... flee like a little bitch that he is, leaving the stupid common folks to take out the garbage.

Election polls, you need to look at the number of polls. There are always slight discrepancies between them but together they give a good picture.

Barring Hillary pulling some stupid, stupid shxt, the results of this US election has pretty much been set in stone -- Hillary is going to be the next POTUS.

Many swing states have been giving Hillary some very strong leads for at least 2 weeks now? Some are now giving Hillary the lead by a 10%+ margin. Hillary already has enough electoral votes to seal the deal.

Trump's immigration talk runs into reality at the Mexican border
Migration routes have moved east, toward new threats: desert, water, and human smugglers

By Alexander Panetta, The Canadian Press Posted: Aug 28, 2016 1:22 PM ET Last Updated: Aug 28, 2016 2:34 PM ET

Trump's immigration talk runs into reality at the Mexican border - World - CBC News


A family embraces at the U.S.-Mexico Border fence during an 'Opening the Door of Hope' event on April 30, 2016 in San Diego, California. Five families, with some members living in Mexico and others in the United States, were permitted to meet and embrace for three minutes each at a door in the fence. The event was planned by the immigrant advocacy group Border Angels. (John Moore/Getty Images)

An American border guard in Jacumba, California steps out of his vehicle onto a dusty desert road, seeking to chat with the strangers he sees milling about the mesquite bushes a few metres from Mexico.

His team catches a dozen migrants crossing here illegally each day, he says. A few dozen others slip through, he figures. Evidence lies in the sand, in the discarded bits of cloth desert-walkers placed under their shoes to hide their footprints.

The conversation turns to Donald Trump. He's asked whether Trump's proposed border wall would halt the flow of migrants crossing through California's Yuha Desert. He doubts it. There's already a wall across almost one-third of the border — people still get over.

"You'd need to get rid of all the ladders in Mexico," he says.

"If you build a bigger wall, they build bigger ladders... They've got fine engineers in Mexico, I have no doubt."

Trump is now wrestling with difficult realities for his immigration plan. Some are political. His new attempt to soften his message for a general-election audience risks fracturing his own base, which was largely built on his immigration stance.

Some involve practical questions: Does Trump plan to cut off U.S. access to the Rio Grande? A wall already covers part of the border; the rest is mostly river. Does he actually intend to deport 11 million people in the U.S. illegally? If so, what's the plan to prevent the collapse of industries that rely on migrant labour? And, if not, does that mean breaking his pledge against granting legal amnesty?

A sombre monument nearby belies the idea of simple solutions here.

A cemetery of unmarked graves is filled with people who perished crossing the border. Thousands have died — their numbers grew the last time politicians tried fixing the border, during the Clinton administration in the 1990s.


Enrique Morones, founder of the advocacy group Border Angels, prepares to place crosses on the graves of unidentified illegal immigrants who died crossing the U.S.-Mexico border at a cemetery near Holtville, California, on Aug. 21, 2014. (Mark Ralston/AFP/Getty Images)

A partial wall went up in the populated areas near San Diego and Tijuana by the ocean, built from old scraps of metal that belonged to the military. As steel sheets and poles rose in the west, migration routes moved east, toward new threats: the desert, the river, and the human smugglers.

Enrique Morones leads a group praying in the cemetery. They're volunteers with his organization Border Angels, which deposits jugs of water in the desert to keep people from dehydrating or roasting to death in the scorching desert sun.

Migrants generally cross when it's cooler, he says — especially at night. Yet accidents happen constantly. People get lost and disoriented. The water bottles run empty — sometimes vandals cut them.

"When we say, 'I'm dying of thirst,' it's just an expression. For them it's real," says Morones, who used to work in marketing for baseball's San Diego Padres before turning to full-time work as an activist and public speaker.

"Every summer there's more deaths because of that wall than in the entire history of the Berlin Wall."

Hugo Castro is among the volunteers dropping water. He usually works in the fields — numerous crops grow in the valley near the Holtville cemetery, including cantaloupe, lettuce, watermelon and cabbage.


Activist Enrique Morones delivers water to the homeless and the undocumented who live beside a wall in a canyon in San Diego, on April 4, 2013. Morones founded the group Border Angels in 1986. (Frederic J. Brown/AFP/Getty Images)

He said many workers go back to Mexico at night because they can't afford lodging in California. He said many make $40-$50 for a 10-hour day in the field, head south, wake up before 2 a.m., and return in the morning: "They cross daily."

He said many workers have legal papers to cross — himself included.

Many don't.

The effect of undocumented labour extends all the way to Canada's kitchen tables. Whether or not they're aware of it, Canadians have a distant personal connection to the migrants who've become a major U.S. election issue.


This photo taken in August 2014 shows the U.S.-Mexico border fence at Jacumba, California. (Mark Ralston/AFP/Getty Images)

In a literal sense, Canada eats the fruits of their labour. Dennis Nuxoll of the Western Growers farming association said of the 400,000 farm workers in California alone, the majority are believed to have falsified work documents.

They pick delicate crops that can't be harvested by machine — especially grapes, tomatoes, strawberries and lettuce.

"If these workers disappeared tomorrow, we could not harvest many of the crops that Canadians consume," Nuxoll said.

These workers are unnerved by the election.

The sound of a transistor radio crackles in the vineyards, in an elegant winery near Napa. The owner says staff have been listening to Spanish-language political radio lately, not music, while they work.

She admits she's unsure whether they all have legitimate documents. There's such a labour shortage in the area, she says, that she's grateful for the workers she has: "I don't know what we'd have to do if we had to hire."

Trump's immigration plan, meanwhile, is in flux. Where he once promised to deport all illegal migrants, he now says he would force them out — then allow an unspecified number back in, require them to pay back taxes and grant legal status.

A shift in tone won't mollify Morones.

"I don't want anything to do with him," he said of Trump. "He represents the worst of the American spirit, and in my eyes he's not welcome here."​

Donald Trump leaps ahead of Hillary Clinton in new poll
By Mary Kay Linge September 4, 2016 | 1:08am

Donald Trump leaps ahead of Hillary Clinton in new poll | New York Post


Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Photo: Getty Images

Donald Trump has taken a one-point lead over Hillary Clinton in a Reuters-Ipsos poll.

It found Republican Trump winning the support of 40 percent of voters, with Democrat Clinton at 39 percent.

It’s an eight-point swing in Trump’s direction in the past week.

When the poll, with a margin of error of 3 percentage points, included third-party candidates, Libertarian Gary Johnson got 7 percent.

Hillary Clinton recovering after 'fainting' at 9/11 ceremony | World | News | Daily Express

So I hate to sound like CIC here, but I think this was all a ruse to get Hilary off the ballot, I guess we'll see if they replace her with Saunders or someone else...Possibly Mr. Kaine.

It's my opinion that the Dems are worried about their odds this coming election, they need to make some changes.

I seem to recall Hillary supporters attacking Bernie's age, citing health concerns. Raising those same questions now with Hillary, when there is ample reason to do so, is sexist.
