    Killary Klingon is, of course, corrupt to the bone.

    But her corruption will matter nothing to the brainwashed morons who vote for her, since they’ll claim that
    1. They’re showing how liberal they ate by voting for a woman and
    2. That she’s less bad than whichever unelectable kook the Republicans put up to pretend to run against her.

    Your #2 reason is looking reasonable. Remember McCain/Palin?

    “The medium is the message.” – Marshall McLuhan – 1964
    .
    “…… a medium affects the society in which it plays a role not only by the content delivered over the medium, but also by the characteristics of the medium itself.”
    .
    The proliferation of full time news channels each requiring content and ratings to survive guarantees there will be stories created where there are no stories, accurate research will be secondary to sensation, titillation will be favoured over substance, bad behaviour sells more than good. McLuhan was never more right.

    Do you belong to that religion that kills people who refuse to join it?

    Voting the candidate is stupid is this political climate. Not only stupid, BONE stupid. Until crossover voting and NO PUNISHMENT for such becomes common again, you either vote the party or you’ll spend a cycle regretting your vote. Moderate Republicans vote in total lockstep with the most radical now – with very very few exceptions. The same goes for Democrats, moderates will vote the party line 90% of the time. The maunderings or sins, good or evil of the CANDIDATE is utterly insignificant, meaningless, unworthy of consideration to any person with the ability to look up and see what’s gone on in Congress for a decade. So you pick. You can vote for the party that wants to give the country to the few wealthy, and let them return nothing, or you can vote for the party that will at least throw you a few crumbs. That’s your choices, in reality world, as things exist right NOW, in the USA. You can vote for the party that constantly DEMANDS war, or you can vote for the party that gets dragged into it reluctantly. You can vote for the party that BEGS for more guns, everywhere, all the time, or you can vote for the party the NRA hates. Choose.
    But voting the candidate is just ridiculous in this environment.

      So, once again, I’ve told the unpleasant truth here. Wonder if I’ll get ignored this time or reviled?

    @OldCoal

    @OldCoal – you are spot on there. At this point, our two-party political system is broken by a nearly uncrossable rift, with no chance of repair. The only way I could see that happening is if we were allowed to vote on our candidates based on their character and what they represent, rather than the party they are affiliated with. And that won’t happen unless the two-party system is abolished.

    Could wish it was different, but it is what it is. The only vote for a person that counts now is the primary, and that’s always swamped by radicals of either party.

    Sure, I’ll probably vote for Hillary. Can you say “Supreme Court”?

    (A lot of that baggage is empty. The GOP has a funny habit of writing meaningless things on pieces of luggage and pretending they’re heavy.)

    It just strikes me that the high road in American politics has gotten a lot lower in the past few decades. One side accusing the other of something they both have. But the cronyism gotten much worse since Peoples United.

    That’s right, keep harping on Hillary. It might just distract enough people from the Republican candidates long enough for one of them to have a chance to win.

    When I found out during the 1990’s that Bill Clinton enjoyed a campaign contribution from China, I was flabbergasted! I thought it was illegal to accept money from foreign nationals and nations. It SHOULD BE!! Foreign entities should be barred from any such practice.

    Every politician is low life scum. I’m voting for Hillary because she’s a woman. Not just because she is obviously the most qualified person on paper because any idiot can be president. I have to admit that conservative morons hating her is a plus.
