Who would you vote for in this scenario?
This isn't a hard call and I'm not a Clinton fan at all.
Wow, look at all those Trump votes.
That's why we don't elect people on the internet.
We really shouldn't be using the electronic voting devices either. Too hackable and politics is often about hacking.
Because the only explanation for 5 votes is the poll being hacked?
No, the comment on the voting machines was an aside.
The point about the poll was that it's easy to click a button and make a choice. It's hard for most people to actually get out to the polls on election day, which is why more people stay home than vote.
Modern American politics has devolved into two parties fighting for constituencies that represent very few votes. Dems for the urban poor and GOP for billionaires. Both parties fight like hell for the senior vote because that is the only group that votes above their representation in the population.
After reading Clinton's recent interview where she said that the politician she most admired was Merkel, the choice to me is pretty obvious here.
Germany on the Brink
If these 2 end up facing each other it just goes to show how low we have finally sunk as a nation.
There was a time when the office of the president was held by incredibly great people.
Now we are just a fucking joke.
I loathe Hillary, but I wouldn't vote for Trump unless Hitler was his opponent.
I know, I have voted in EVERY Presidential (8) and Mid-Term election (15) since I turned 18. Hell I vote in just about all the off year and school board ones as well (but I have missed a few).
I honestly feel like I would still vote, but just leave the top of the ticket blank. I do not think I could stomach voting for either one of them.
I might actually vote for Gary Johnson. Maybe we could wake America up to start looking at third and fourth parties.
And yet still more reputable than the State of Florida when it comes to results.
Name 3, just curious.
My 3 favs:
Harry S Truman
William Henry Harrison (wasn't in office long enough to screw anything up)
I agree with Lincoln without a doubt.
Thomas Jefferson - if you take any one of his amazing accomplishments would classify him as a great and then if you look at the collective things he did.
Andrew Jackson - much maligned nowadays because of the trail of tears, was incredibly driven and a man of conviction regardless of if you agreed with his politics or not.
James K. Polk - my personal favorite president, set his goals and agenda and set and accomplished them, probably the most underrated and unknown great president.
Very good choice
Bingo! This is a fun forum though. I just voted in each of the polls.
