Um, I spend most of my time in Upstste which went heavily for Bernie. If I only wanted to hear my biased viewpoints I would get a blog or a forum devoted to such but I don't. I want to hear all different viewpoints and ideas and give my viewpoints and ideas in an adult manner that includes giving sources and accepting when you're wrong, whether politics, lottery, history or any other topic.

"I want to hear all different viewpoints...." Yada Yada Yada

SURE you do, right! -wink-

Adult?  Good grief, your definition is different than the one I know.  How many times have you used "Christian Taliban"?  How many times have you made up some statistic about red states?  How many times did YOU start the name-calling first, how many times did you intentionally try to troll someone?  I don't know the exact number, but I'd say a bunch.

    1) Christian taliban is an accurate term to describe some members of both parties who seek to forcibly bring religion into our lives. 2) I don't make them up, you can research yourself. If you find something wrong, PLEASE let me know so I can know that is wrong information. 3) Never started the name-calling, always in reply to a lot of name calling. 4) Never tried to intentionally troll anyone, The exact number for the latter two is Zero. The first one is probably a bunch and the second one is by definition something that I can't answer.

      Someone said Trump does not think before he opens his mouth. I think I like that better

      than someone who has thought too much before they open their's. Trump has my vote.

      Obama is a fail. I remember how many people were so happy when he won. How were his

      lies different from anyone else's? Are those people happy now like they were then? I doubt it.

      Obamacare is a joke and so is he, I'll be so glad when he's gone. 

      Voters need to come to their own conclusions about who is best for this country. Stop listening

      to opinions of the media, watchdog groups and the opposite party. People are either too weak,

      confused or afraid to stand alone as if just going with the brainwashed public opinion of who

      will do right for us is the only choice whether they fully agree with the notion or not. Some of

      them dont know why they're supporting someone but will go with the flow because to them it

      feels comfortable and right and how can so many others be wrong?

      Hillary is a choice worse than Obama. Same political party, same Democratic bull but this

      one is a woman. Obama was a first, you don't think the honor of being another first hasn't crossed

      her mind? She wants this very badly. She'll lie, cheat and bash as well as the rest of them and if

      elected will continue on leading this country down the drain. Not having a humble bone in your 

      body leads to treachery and arrogance leads to poor judgement. Give me Trumps plan of action

      any day over a woman with something to prove. Every time she raises her hands while spewing her

      garbage to the brainwashed masses, I think of the devil summoning his legion of evil doing servants.

      I see no evil in Trump but if let my mind be manipulated in the way the oposition wants it to be, we have

      no choice but to waste more time with the same ideas and agenda we've been subjected to in 8 years.

      Even if Trump loses I'll know I didn't go with the flow and vote in the disaster named Hillary. She's sly

      in a bad way, calculating and conniving. She knew she had to keep Bill around for a reason and this is it.

      I'm not willing to elect someone who compromises principals to reach a personal goal. Anything goes in

      politics, they're all wrapped up in the fantasy that they do the best they can. I want Trump's brand of reality.

      Not the political correctness that is doing nothing to change this country in the way it needs to change.

        Nice post dr65! Like yourself, I agree that some of the things coming out of Donald Trumps aren't exactly well thought out and pre-planned. I just want him to tone down some of his logic. I feel he truly want wants to make America great again while Hillary is sticking to her Saul Alinsky game plan in order to achieve absolute power.

        The supreme court will be altered for generations if she is elected and having predominantly liberal justices is one of my biggest fears.

                 I Agree!  Very well said dr65... and we do need a change.. almost 8 years of Obama and we are worst off now than when he came into office and if Hillary get's in we will have at least another 4 years of the same thing... that Obamacare has put more people into debt...and I am  a witness to that.. cause my insurance premium went up 3 times after this Obamacare went into effect...and they just raised their premiums again....and I am still  paying on medical bills and than to be taxed at income tax time if you don't have insurance... that is crazy... some people I know had to pay 600 or more dollars in taxes cause they didn't have the Obamacare Insurance...these are the worst insurance plans that I have ever seen in my life...all they do is put you more into debt...

            If you thought obamacare was bad before, just wait until 2017.  The insurance provided by your employer used to be a tax free benefit, not anymore.  Next year the money from your employer towards health insurance (I think over 10K) will be considered your income and you will be taxed 40% on that amount.  I belong to a union and the contractor I work for contributes about 13K for my insurance, well next year I will have to pay tax on that 13K.  Sucks!

                Yes and he and Michelle get to go out gracefully with smiles on their faces

                and stories to tell...him on how he made sure America had health insurance

                (but penalized lots) her with her healthy school lunch program (designed to

                stop unhealthy choices in school...a grape, a 1/2 oz of milk and 1/4 of a

                Cornish hen breast) 

                Lots will suffer and greenbay, that is sad stuff. I want the real America back.

                Dee I'm sure a lot of other people like your $600 example exist. They don't want to

                dwell on that...they want us accepting, conforming and peaceful and nodding our

                heads and telling them great job! Bs...they should be forced to live what some of

                these people are...then come tell me you care. They'd be in line making changes

                so fast our heads would spin. I dont care if Trump is rich and certainly dont give

                a da mn about his tax returns. Is someone looking for crooked?...grow up people

                open your eyes and get your country back from the tyrants that currently run it.

                  Saul Alinsky was a community organizer who wanted to help those who didn't have any power. Does that sound like Hillary to you? Trump's patriotism is not disputable, his ability to not change his mind on every issue every 3 seconds though is another question. Oh yes because having Supreme Court justices that believe that Satan is walking among us (real Scalia quote) is so not insane and dangerous.

                    That's extreme right wing conservatism for you. The far-right Obamacare comes from the 1990's Heritage Foundation. Elect a Leftist, or even a centrist like Sanders and you'd get very different results.

                          Four years ago I posted an excerpt from the Republican National platform calling for the banning of all forms of Online gambling and when they ran out of lame arguments, the insults started. Sound familiar? The good news is (maybe because the Republican nominee is a casino owner), for the first time in 12 years, the ban is no longer in the platform.

                          As for viewpoints, people on this thread are calling for change and if nominating a women for president isn't change, I'd like to hear what they call change.

                            Community organizing

                            Community organizing is a process where people who live in proximity to each other come together into an organization that acts in their shared self-interest. Unlike those who promote more-consensual community building, community organizers generally assume that social change necessarily involves conflict and social struggle in order to generate collective power for the powerless.

                            Community organizing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

                              As for viewpoints, people on this thread are calling for change and if nominating a women for president isn't change, I'd like to hear what they call change.

                              It figures that you would think just because Hillary is a woman she automatically deserves to be appointed president. Never mind the fact that if her last name wasn't Clinton and she had perpetrated just 1/10th of the criminal activities that the FBI accused her of she would be in jail.

                              The entire government and a large majority of congress is beyond corrupt. Being delusional about your party is another reason why our country is getting destroyed from within.
