Trump no chance as it stands.

On assasination, i dont think so. Remember why JFK was assassinated. Besides the fact that he was not well-liked by big corporate (huge popularity with the people though), he was about to pull out of Vietnam which would have killed the US war machine. Trump is good for the war machine. He will just FUBAR the US after all is said and done. If he does become president though, I do not support any assassinations. That is how you kill democracy. If the people made a shitty choice, they will have to live with it, and learn so that they dont repeat that in the future.

I think the truth about JFK will come out some day when enough time has passed. It was a dark day of US history.

I'm sure many people in the government would see him a huge threat to national security and a destabilizing force to both the country in particular and world in general. While I don't buy into the whole "JFK was assassinated by the USA government" conspiracy, it can certainly lend credence that a Trump presidency could potentially end in a similar manner.

Anyway, that's my late night thought of the day.
I've been thinking about this as well and I personally think it's a big possibility. Look what happened with JFK and people loved the guy.

it crossed my mind...but i don't think he'll be assassinated
hell, he'll probably do all the assassinations

not saying we're the best system but any political system like the US is doomed to be fucked and is hardly synonymous with democracy...it's literally rigged to be a 2 party system

Just look at all the latin american countries and other developing nations with similar systems

Its funny people are getting so butthurt about him saying the election is rigged.

I know that isn't the context he means it in, but it couldn't be more true.

My theory?

Collusion

Trump is a 'business' man. He can take on whatever venture he wishes. Thanks to the huge media push he got during the repub campaign trails, he ended up as the sole remaining candidate.

Now that Clinton got the Dem nomination, the media is now going on huge offensives against Trump. Very rarely has Clinton been portrayed in a negative light since the nomination regardless of the DNC hack and what ultimately led to Bernie losing.

Wikileaks has been publishing documents now including her speeches FOR Goldman Sachs. Remember that Goldman Sachs donated to Clinton AND Cruz at the same fucking time.

However, regardless of all the above, Trump has continuously shown himself to be inexperienced for political office and my theory is that he knows that. I always believed he decided to enter and play the theatrical lead to see what would happen. I'm not even sure he thought he'd go this far. He did drop out in 2012 after all.

I think backdoor tactics are still going on. Trump will get dinged in the debates and in the ongoing media coverage and slowly lose ground against Clinton.

Come election time, Clinton will win and Trump will run back to his 'business' empire....

...ready to sit down as a guest of honour at a Clinton Campaign fundraiser.

Trumps business empire is not doing so well and a lot of his supporters can't afford to stay in one of his hotels.

I strongly recommend everyone watch the documentary 13th on Netflix. Their is a section in the film that made me dislike Donald Trump even more, but also made me think Hillary and Bill should be put on blast even more. When she stands up to Trumps Stop and Frisk stance, I just want to be like you realize your husbands to blame for so much of what's happened in the black community, and you fully supported him during his positioning on the three strike rule.

Everyone should watch. How a single black person could vote for Trump is mind boggling, but I also see why voting her Hillary probably doesn't feel that much better if your a black person in the US considering her past.

Hah

Scott Foval and Robert Creamer have both lost their jobs as a result of Project Veritas. Well played.

Meanwhile Wikileaks continued to publish various Clinton related documents just shy of having their Internet shut off by the Ecuadorian government.

Funny that when Wikileaks released Iraq war documents that were against the Bush administration and republicans in general, everyone praised the organization but many years later when they shift to the 'left', everyone goes belly up-in-arms about connections to Trump, Putin, Russian hackers etc.

Trump actually wins this debate I think. He was very aggressive but not totally dirty (like the 2nd time) and it worked out well for him.

Not even close. He lost big time. When he said he would not commit to the election results he lost it. CNN's poll has Hillory winning the debate 52% to 39% for donald. That 39% is donalds base and thats all he is going to get in the election.


Also anyone know Billy Bush's midichlorian count?

Yeah, that was an awful answer.

He should have said:

"If the election is free of fraud and voter manipulation, I definitely will accept it."

Panders to his base and also doesn't sound like an asshole.

CNN os pro Clinton though. With the news outlets, you really need to know these things.

He was able to discuss toes to toes on foreign policy. Clinton seems to be snoozing.

Very curious to see the voter turnout numbers this year, and whether or not the popular vote coincides with the actual election outcome.

Debate was meh.

What was interesting to me was the pro-life bit, classic struggle of state rights vs federal powers. While I certainly believe that a woman should have the right to end a pregnancy, I also support the notion that if the majority of the population votes for/against anything - you have to recognize that vote. At what point does the federal gov. have the right to force laws on a state where the majority if that states does not support the law?

there needs to be a lot more accountability for people making false claims during a debate.
it should be absolutely criminal to lie as boldly as the candidates do. you can't say something last week then deny that you ever said it a week later when it's all clearly on video. i think candidates should be under oath.

you're right, but any level of obligation to tell the truth is better than none.
right now you could say you donated half your fortune last year to doctors without borders and some people would actually change their vote just by hearing you say that.

Segregation/Jim Crow. If some Red states need to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 20th/21st Century then so be it.
