more oversimplified US politics:


The rich party is obviously outnumbered by the poor so they had to coddle a base that would be loyal to them. They decided to be the religion and patriot party to the masses while keeping a grip on their monopolies and corporate welfare policies.

The poor party is portrayed as godless lazy takers by the rich party

A rich party TV network was started and radio conservative spokesmen kept up a steady drumbeat against the poor party..

As the parties have become more strident, acerbic and out right hateful of one another since Gingrich introduced obstructionist politics, a breakaway Tea Party of no nothing reactionaries were funded by the Koch bros for Congressional seats.

Now out of control critics of all government has their hero in Trump.

After the race-baiting and buffoonish, blatantly unpresidential behavior the most disturbing and inhumane aspect of Trump's inept campaign is his hollow promise to bring back manufacturing jobs to rust belt states that had been made obsolete by automation and more efficient methods of production before NAFTA was even enacted. He's given his followers in those areas a false hope of regaining jobs that are never coming back.

Normally, one would think that it would be able to carry on an intelligent discussion of the pros and cons of the candidates in an election. One might expect some on one side to make weird accusations against the other candidate, but such accusations can be safely ignored.

But this time, there is one candidate who really is as weird as people say he is. And since people point out his oddities and expect to believe, there arises the belief that the accusations against the other candidate must be valid, too.

Who in his right mind could believe the barrage of accusations flying in the current Presidential race? Well, I do believe most of what is said against Trump. So, I suppose, why shouldn't others believe what is said against Clinton?

It's a crazy contest this year.

Many here maintain that Mr Trump is unfit for office due to his lack of experience in politics or Foreign affairs, they think electors votes should go to Mrs Clinton, but this argument does not stack up.

Acme says "It was horrifying that Bush started a war in Iraq, and wretched to see how anyone who opposed it was immediately pounced upon as unpatriotic if they didn't get behind Baby Bush right after 9-11. Cheney lied. Many people were fooled.".....Well I was not fooled and neither were the 500,000 citizens of Glasgow who marched against Mr Bush's war.....or the 1000,000 who marched in London.

Why then was the other candidate for the coming election so easily fooled......it says little for her political acumen that she supported an obvious wrong, and repeated the mistake twice subsequently?

I think it's fair to maintain Trump is unfit for office due to his past actions. This man would be responsible for sending people into war, asking them to lay down their lives and their relatives to suffer this loss. He is way too reactionary, impetuous and petulant to be entrusted with this incredibly important responsibility.

Trump does't care for people, is cruel and vindictive towards them when they disagree with him and above all is a demagogue; I doubt he really cares what anyone thinks as long as they vote for him.

He is utterly bereft of any personal or professional integrity.

It only takes one to obey Trump's threats.

We are still living in an H.G. Wells future of automated war by air, land, sea and space. A nation of science and government against shot gun hoards with more in common with the Taliban than they could bear to believe.

The irony that the Republican party nourished a base that will destroy them simply because they needed numbers to balance the unequal distribution between rich constituents against the poor, is not lost on anyone anymore.

I will leave this line of reasoning here and not prophesize further Mr. Wells.


Now for something completely different;

Almost. But the REALLY worst aspect of Trump's campaign are the millions of imbeciles that believe his utter bullshit.

why shouldn't others believe what is said against Clinton?

Perhaps because while the things said about Trump are in 95% of the time TRUE and documented and provable, while a similar percentage of the things said against Clinton are blatant lies & BS and are easily proved as such?

Of course, one needs to possess at least minimal intelligence to make that distinction. Therein lies the problem.

He's given his followers in those areas a false hope of regaining jobs that are never coming back.

The jobs, or equivalent jobs, could indeed come back. Most of them are still being done, but relocated to places where wage costs are dramatically lower. Reestablishing manufacturing industry would need some way of addressing that. High tariffs has been the historic way, but that backfires badly, hefty wage subsidies is another - but that means high taxes, while of course Trump promises tax cuts, especially for the rich of course.

The thing is, within a year of his being elected, nine out of ten people who voted for him would swear, and probably believe, they didn't.

And the same would apply if a Clinton presidency turned out to be a roaring success.

The really nasty lot are always there, damaged people looking to damage others. But they aren''t the main danger. The bigger danger are the ordinary folk standing around feeling embarassed, but going along with it. But in the quiet of a voting booth a lot of them are liable to get scared at the thought of President Trump actually winning.

But there aren't all that many Trumpists anyway. The biggest danger is people getting pissed off with the whole thing, and not voting. If all the people who despise Trump vote effectively against him, he hasn't a chance. And effectively means Clinton, even reluctantly.

There have always been shrill and irrational voices in the political discussion, but nowadays it seems that these voices have come to the forefront. Maybe it's caused by the proliferation of "social media," allowing and even promoting people saying things that once were only said in barrooms. There was a time when the "legitimate press" would never allow such things to be published, but then came FoxNews. And the logical result is Donald Trump.

Greg's link above (6:13 PM) is to the New York Times video of the hateful things reporters have seen and heard at Trump rallies. It is indeed horrifying to hear what is said by Trump's troops. But Greg, your usual response to all this is to use scatological references (potty talk), which makes our side sound just as irrational as the other side.

I would like to see this election defeat the Voices of Trump once and for all, and bring down the Tea Party nonsense along with it. We need to bring the political conversation back to a higher plane, so that people can discuss such things rationally.

But how do we accomplish this? By reciting "Trumpshit" over and over again?

These are indeed some interesting candidates, Donuel, but how does dividing the anti-Trump vote serve to defeat Trump? Ralph Nader tried that in 2000, and we ended up with George W. Bush.

McGrath says: First past the post is a lousy and anti-democratic system in any country. But you seem to be even more wedded to it in the States than back here in England.

Kevin, you've pointed out the fundamental flaw in the American system: whoever gets 51%, calls all the shots - and the 49% are mostly forgotten until the next election.

But there's another, even more insidious flaw in our system: each party nominates one candidate, and that candidate is often selected by a plurality vote. In this way, a guy like Trump who never had good support from more than 20% of the electorate, beats out others and suddenly becomes his party's candidate and automatically gets close to 50% of the votes.

There's close to a 50-50 split between Republicans and Democrats in the U.S., and it's well-nigh impossible to get most Republicans to vote for a Democrat (especially a lackluster candidate like Hillary). So, Trump has a good chance of being elected.

I'm scared.

I've always rejected the "Nader nag" - the meme that says if you vote your conscience you're helping to elect the enemy - but this time it's different.

It's different because during the next president's first term, three Supreme Court justices are likely to retire or die. A president is only in office for eight years at most, but SC justices are appointed (by the president) for life. This, and only this, is the reason why progressives MUST help elect the odious HC.

I can't understand how people on the left describe Hillary as "odious" and "the lesser of two evils."

In a real world, Hillary Clinton would be an perfect candidate for President. She's extraordinarily intelligent, and she believes that government is really supposed to serve the people - and she's proved that belief all through her life.

But the Republicans have worked to defame her since 1992, and now even liberals speak of her as "odious." Trump says she and President Obama are the founders of ISIS, and people actually believe that.

It's really distressing to see how the Republicans have worked so hard for so long to smear the reputation of a good woman - and to see that they have succeeded to the point where even liberals now call her "odious."
