Yes. We should all accept the presidential election race for what it is......a nation wide circus act with our most wealthy and elite battling it out for a job and there is only one man who can help us accept reality for what it is. Our saviour is that loony old man.

I don't think Trump realizes it but he is almost a satire artist at this point. People who are running right now are competing with this clown and LOSING. That is a reflection of our election process right now

I am not American and as long as he is in the race I will be paying close attention. The shitstorm's a brewing over the hill Randy, so get your goggles out because when the shit hits the fan you will want to be able to see the shitacular event for all its worth.

I find it difficult to believe Trump does not know EXACTLY what kind hype and press he's generating. He's a media-spinster, and has been a presidential hopeful for over a decade now. I'm convinced that he'll bust out a "You're fired!" line at one of the debates to a weaker candidate, people will laugh and he'll get an applause break. The next morning's headlines will be some Celebrity Apprentice-pun, and Trump's cute little Fleshlight for his ego he calls his tv show will get a ratings boost the next two or three seasons. After it becomes clear he's pursuing office for his own narcissistic reasons, he'll drop and we'll have Bush III as the nominee like has been planned for decades now.

The man is greed incarnate, and a walking testimony to "Any press is good press." He's evidence that money fails upward, and that I'm now living in a National Lampoons movie. If there weren't so much secrecy behind the actual choosing of my county's leader, this whole process would be a comedy sketch. What it boils down to is a question of "name a price for your morality." And the facade is rapidly collapsing before us.

Again, it'd be hilarious if I were watching this script play out on a movie screen, and not reading it daily my entire life

During hoss(sp?) elections i wrote my name on every category, then handed the sheet to my buddies.

They did the same. Then they ran to every homeroom. I won most of the boys awards and half of the girls awards.

The school didn't know if it was a prank on me/by me/what to do. They stole my girl prizes. Some second place hussies got girl with the nicest smile and whatever else. Then they vote manipulated it so i only won a third of the boys categories. I didn't even go to the award ceremonies because I was a fat little badass like that.

I guess the moral of my story is: When the election is a preposterous joke and nobody respects it, dickheads don't have to try very hard to fuck it up. They might even screw it up without meaning to.

It's funny, America thinks it's a bastion of democracy, but the Ancient Athenians regarded elections are inherently corrupt.

It is accepted as democratic when public offices are allocated by lot; and as oligarchic when they are filled by election. - Aristotle, Politics 4.1294be

America is not a Democracy, it's a Republic..says so right in the pledge of allegiance: "...and to the Republic, for which it stands..."

Any form of government is open to corruption, it is run by people.

Democracy (IMO) is the best option we have at controlling who wield that power. When people ignore elections and complain about the government, they have only themselves to blame.

It's almost entertaining to see what kind of things Trump is going to come up with next. The big problem is with him spouting off his special kind of crazy; he is going to start to make the rest of the candidates, who people would normally consider way too far to the right, come off as reasonable.

Nah. He's just saying what many conservatives say and think behind closed doors. That's why he's so popular.

Don't forget the Nation Review just publish an article calling Senator Sanders a nazi (national-socialist), they also went after Kerry on his war record. The republican party doesn't like Trump because he is going after them.

Imagine if all elected officials said out loud what they "say and think behind closed doors." At least we don't have to wonder whether he means what he says.

No one - from left to right - denies that McCain is a legitimate war hero. Only a feckless blowhard coward elite like Trump, who has never fought and found every way of getting out of fighting, has the audacity of challenging the sacrifice others have made so that Trump could reap the benefits of a free, democratic and capitalist society.

In my opinion he is popular because he isn't hiding behind bullshit rhetoric. He is saying what he honestly thinks and honesty in politics is so rare that people respond to it despite the message behind it.

They don't even want to touch on the fact that he has politicians numbers from both parties from people calling him for help.

More importantly Trump is old school keeping everything in files so no one can hack his info. No one knows what he's going to do next. This is amazing.

If he makes the nomination I'll probably vote for him just as a fuck you to a lot of people.

I cannot even begin to describe how much the idea of a Bush/Clinton depresses me. I would almost rather see this joke of a candidate.

Can you imagine him on the stage with the other candidates during the debates. It will be so amazing.

It would probably be nothing short of amazing. I don't think the other candidates would know how to react to his non-pr friendly attacks and rants.
