    martens said: ‘That the likes of libsmasher and many other of the Right wing crew here can even think of voting for Trump while they are accusing Clinton of all sorts of immorality’

    Sue diatribed: ‘Blanket judgment of a whole segment of society does not flatter anyone professing to be a loving tolerant soul.’

    You took umbrage with that? Not so much a blanket as a hankerchief…Martens is being fairly specific as to who she is calling out. Do you include yourself amongst the motley crew she is criticising? I didn’t think you were a Trump supporter to be honest, so why are you taking offence? Martens was not being indiscriminate of conservatives, just those on this forum with the conditions she listed.
    Methinks you doth protest too much.

    Before being banned on GC Michaelwme would often redirect our attention to more expert & objective analyses by contributors to Stratfor…well, those of us who cared to follow his links, at any rate

    When it comes to figuring out Russia & Putin, I’d avoid RT and our resident Russian cheerleader, FNT. I miss Michael. He was far more perceptive than most of us on this forum as regards world politics and his satire would often slap us around a bit but usually in the right direction. FNT just slaps with large trollish trouts.

    Putin’s Geopolitical Logic – 2012

    Or perhaps Putin sees Trump as his “Nixon”…?

    The World Through Putin’s Eyes – 2013

    Both articles by Robert Kaplan.

    Ok, so let’s zip on forward a few years with major changes since 2012 & 2013…

    Putin’s Choice Lauren Goodrich, June 2016

    Would a President Trump still serve Putin’s interests better…?

    ‘Inside Trump’s financial ties to Russia and his unusual flattery of Vladimir Putin’

    “…In 2012, one year before Trump brought his beauty pageant to Moscow, then-Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney called Russia the United States’ top geopolitical threat — an assessment that has only gained currency since then.Trump has conveyed a different view, informed in part through his business ambitions. Since the 1980s, Trump and his family members have made numerous trips to Moscow in search of business opportunities, and they have relied on Russian investors to buy their properties around the world.

    “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Trump’s son, Donald Jr., told a real estate conference in 2008, according to an account posted on the website of eTurboNews, a trade publication. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.””

    ‘… but this is serious, adult business so I make the best choice from a bad hand I can make’

    …and you think the adult choice is Trump?!

    ’ I suppose I could throw my vote away and vote for some candidate of the Green party or something,’

    Do or something! We outside the USA can handle dealing with people like Clinton, but Trump would be an international disaster.

    Once I told my wife who Ralph Nader was, his consumer rights achievements and his last claim to fame, she suggested a 2nd round style if no outright winner over 50%, like in Austria. Yeah, like that worked over here. :-|

    But at least it would give the 3rd parties a voice of sorts without diluting the vote in the final round…?

    Point taken :) And duly noted.
