This Trump guy

Meanwhile we have seen the Super Tuesday. Trump and Clinton are winning. Everyone else is slowly fading out of the picture.


Something else that has appeared: the Republican party is pulling together to boycott a radical candidate like Trump. From what I have seen these past years, this radicalism is something of their own creation. I wonder what will happen though. What do you think?

Seems like Sanders doesn't have any realistic chances of winning the democratic nomination now. sad.gif


I'm still baffled he did so well. Guess I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up. When he first said he would run for president I didn't think he was serious, when he again said he'd run I understood he meant it, but I thought he'd have little success. Then way later when this whole circus begun, it's been amazing. It's evident people want change.

So far my opinion has been formed regarding the frontrunners of each party.


Clinton (Dem) is in the pocket of the big finance. https://www.opensecrets.org/pres16/contrib....00000019&type=f She talks big about her ideals, but I doubt this will result in effective policies should she ever be elected.


Sanders (Dem) seems to receive broad support as underdog. He does not appear to have sold his soul to big corporations like Clinton has. https://www.opensecrets.org/pres16/contrib....00000528&type=f But he may be too 'radical' for the US to handle. Also, he is quite old so his choice of vice-president would seem crucial.


Trump (Rep) is completey crazy for which reason I don't trust him with the second largest nucleair arsenal in the world. And he has actually threatened to use them. Trump is indeed largely financing himself. https://www.opensecrets.org/pres16/contrib....00023864&type=f


Cruz (Rep) feels like a political aparatchik of the old Republican establishment. He gets his money from the energy sector, notably big oil. https://www.opensecrets.org/pres16/contrib....00033085&type=f


And those who dropped out...


Bush (Rep) received host donations from oil+gas industry and finance. https://www.opensecrets.org/pres16/contrib....00037006&type=f


Rubio (Rep) was sponsored by finance as well. https://www.opensecrets.org/pres16/contrib....00030612&type=f

The only reason they could have for actually distancing themselves from the sitting president is out of fear of losing their own comfortable seat of power. If there are too many scandals this could reflect bad on their state and cost them votes.

Oh my this topic. I can't believe the soap opera continues. From what we have seen so far, these past 2 years, I honestly believe old man Trump is rotten in his head. Mental health problems should be a reason to exclude someone from running for office, let alone be elected.
