The more I watch Hillary, and the more I see how the entire media is biased in her favour, the more I get pissed off at the whole system - and actually WANT Trump to win, just to fuck some shit up and force-feed political reform down American throats.

CNN: Clinton News Network - biased media

Thankfully, because only two people are running in this Democratic cycle, Bernie gets more attention than RP has in the past running against a dozen other candidates... hopefully we end up with a Bernie v. Trump head to head.
It's funny because every generation, people bitch about how the previous gen left things so fucked up for them. And it's true, because none of the required changes are ever made.

So here's Bernie, a guy who is willing to make those changes that are needed, to fix America's fucked up situations, along with the world's. "The Establishment" obviously doesn't want these things to change, so are downplaying him as much as they can.

Luckily for the people, America isn't a completely shitty society. People actually have the ability to put him in power. There are very few countries where this could happen - most simply don't have a choice. Thing is, the young people who are getting fucked by previous generations have to go out and work to put him in power.

I think he won Nevada and Kansas today, so it looks like it can happen.

I think a DEM wins pretty much no matter what, especially if Trump is the REP. But if Hilary is representing DEM, it won't matter one bit. It's just more of the same shit. Just another pawn

I was under the impression that Al Gore won the popular vote but lost due to the electoral college.

Somebody should send a tweet to Hillary about using this new Samsung solid state drive to save her work e-mails. Troll her about the 15 TB size.



Bernie Sanders is too old. He also doesn't make any good fried chicken like KFC's Colonel Sanders.

The fact Sanders is getting railroaded by the media just shows who really runs the country there. His rallies are huge and not covered while trump will have a couple hundred hicks and he'll get prime time looking like the 2nd coming. The entire voting system in America is so ass backward you can't really be surprised when the "pawns" get elected. It's how its set up, so the people in power, whomever they may be can put whomever they want in charge of the country.

Berz out.

Most people are not going to have a problem with that video it's the other 100 plus things he has said people have a problem with.

You could make a video just like that about Hitler too.

So much this. The ignorant will try and peg this a some sort of conspiracy tinfoil hat thinking, but its so obvious the way the system is run is completely flawed. People vote based on recognition. Recognition of a candidate is controlled by the media. Media is controlled by corporations with massive financial interest in the outcome.

And the reason is because Sanders is THE ideal candidate for the general population, NOT the wealthy elite. The money that goes towards the media is backed by the wealthy elite. It will never change. John and Jane Smith who work their blue collar lives will never be able to live a life beyond their class because of this feedback loop created by the government, media and the rich who not only support them, but CREATE them.

All the other candidates besides Sanders are parasitic hypocrites. Hillary is a joke and to call her a democrat is like calling George Wallace a 'friendly bro'.

Reminds me of the old saying that in order to maintain an empire, you must keep your citizens dumb, deaf and blind.

Solid answer by Trudeau. If Trump wins, gotta work with the guy so best not to trash him.

I wish Bloomberg would run, he's one I would like to see to hold office.

Trump v Sanders in November is my vote. Cruz and Rubio don't even hold a candle and Hildebeast just make everyone thinks of WallSt every time she opens her mouth. Also people like Mitt Romney need to shut the fuck up, they are just adding fuel to the Trump fire. Yep, let's have a WallSt elite guy trashing Trump, who has huge support from the uneducated, less-fortunate Americans. That will take away his votes.

If Sanders was such the hero people make him out to be, he'd have the votes.

This is the dumb social media generation who are making up a huge portion of voters, they vote on the most basic of matters. And while Trump does get the media love, if Sanders was so hot and such a slam dunk, more people would be with him. He is obviously going about his campaign in the wrong way, and hence will probably not get the vote.

personally i'm all for Trump, or at the very least, the idea of trump.

FINALLY, somone who doesn't just tow the complete PC bullshit all other politicians do. Someone who isn't afraid to open his mouth.

So sick of all the bullshit "career" politicians tote, look at fucking Trudeau.. guy hasnt pulled through on a single promise, and a large majority of his promises have already been backtracked on or modified.. great.. typical..

Any President is just a figure head, you think Trump is going to be all crazy and erratic if he gets in? of course not.

the guy will surround himself with good people, have a reputable/personable VP, and while still holding to his ideals, back off on the harshness and severity on which he pushes his objectives.

Trump/The Trump idea is the kick in the ass which north american politics have been LONG overdue for.

As I said on somewhere in previous pages, if Robert Herjavec is running a campaign for prime minister, I would vote for him.
