Free States of Gaia Regional Message Board
From my perspective as a former member of the armed forces, I cringe at the thought of either candidate being elected. In either case, I fear that the members of our military will be placed in harm's way by the ineptitude of either candidate.
As much as I despise Trump, I must admit he TALKS more like a dove than Clinton, whose past positions have been hawkish.
Since the previous exchange, we ave now had the first presidential debate, which saw Clinton be cool, collected, forceful, and detailed, while The Donald had memorized about 15 minutes' worth of materials, then became visibly flustered and incoherent and insulting for the remainder of the debate, telling easily verified lies and arguing twice with the moderator over the veracity of certain claims. For good or for ill, that has probably sealed his doom at the ballot box.
I expect the VP debate Tuesday to be a more even match, with intelligent surrogates explaining their running mates' policies. Since Trump changes positions more frequently than he changes socks, that could present an issue for Pence. Kaine's job is a little bit easier. I've never heard either of them debate, so I will be paying close attention.
I swear there are gears broken/missing inside Trump's skull. Just how he speaks is telling.
"Our country is in serious trouble. We donít have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we donít have them. When was the last time anybody saw us beating, letís say, China in a trade deal? They kill us. I beat China all the time. All the time."
The thing that really bothers me is that he is so concerned about "winning" over everything when he doesn't have a freaking clue on what "winning" really means in a grey/nuanced world. But hey, if simple speech floats your boat....
I don't see "bombing the sh** out of them", "I'd bring back waterboarding and a lot worse", and advocating the killing of terrorists families as at all dove like. Clinton may think like that but she knows better than to say it.
As for "winning", I'm not entirely sure how Drumpf defines it. Doesn't winning in business mean both parties get what they want out of a deal? Drumpf's idea of winning seems to involve changing the terms of the deal after the work has been done, or not paying at all. Only he wins. As for his bloated claim that "I beat China all the time. All the time.", how about proving it? I doubt he could.
*Pokes head out of the bunker* ... "is the election over yet??"
If you're going to poke your head I suggest protective head gear.
With the debates now over, with the videotape scandal of Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women, with 9+ women coming forward to say he did it to them, and with Trump's claim that he will not endorse the election results if he does not win, most serious commentators give Clinton virtually a 100% chance of winning. A Republican insider admitted that internal polling showed Clinton getting 400+ votes in the Electoral College, the GOP losing the Senate, and possibly the House, too. It would take something genuinely monumental to change the trajectory this election is on. People are speculating that Trump was never seriously interested in the presidency, that he will use his "concession speech" to announce some new venture, like Trump TV. If so, Trump will have pulled off one of the most spectacular scams in US history.
Well, let's see. Lying to Congress, FBI says she did it, but..., private server and destruction of emails AFTER a subpoena, favoring foundation donors, selling U to Russia, flood of uncheckable immigrants, lack of any respect for the Constitution, partial birth abortion, enabler of sexual predator, multiple scandals in Arkansas, everything's going to be free but taxes won't go up, quarter of a million for a one hour speech, open borders, Border Patrol given catch and release order, the list goes on and on. Versus 10 minutes of fame accusers and a high school level potty mouth. She is rarely seen on the stump, the other draws standing room only crowds everywhere he goes. What am I missing here?
I'm seriously considering ROTC.
