    I've always wanted to see a strong 3rd or 4th party. I'm quite sure Trump will lose this election and he will cry foul, there will be some chaos. The republican party will split (is already splitting) and a Trump faction will emerge. Something has to come out of this mess.

    If someone slightly more sane than Trump pushed his basic points, there would be a chance:
    Bring our jobs back
    Protect the boarders
    Less free trade
    Major political parties are corrupt
    Limit immigration
    Anti PC culture
    Moderate political views

    I think all the Trump sheep will just fall back in line behind the next person with an R after their name just like the good little talking point spouting drones they truly are while the GOP continues to sell them out to the tobacco, drug, insurance, and gun lobbies.

    Really? The Trumpsters seem fairly rebellious. I don't think Paul Ryan can count on their support anymore.

    That seemed to be extreme conservatives. Not a ton of those running around. I'm suggesting a more middle of the road populist party.

    I think both parties will re-write their primary/nomination rules to make it much harder for outsiders to run under the party banner, that will open the door for a 3rd party but the financing for a real run at the presidency would be difficult to come by.

    I think the main problem with the Republican party is that they always end up picking a guy who makes mostly good points but then starts talking about retarded shit like anti abortion, anti gay marriage, and other Bible thumping stuff.

    Jokes on them, we've already been sold us to Wall Street, corporations, drug, and insurance lobbies by the current administration.

    I think the problem with both parties but especially the Republican party is that the primaries always produce extremists. The base never wants a candidate that is moderate they want the pure party line, none of those compromising asshats (that we need to get this country working together again).

    But as a moderate / independent I find that I piss everyone off. So a moderate tends to piss off the base and cant get past a primary, where they would get moderate votes in the general.

    Are we just doomed? Doomed I say!

    Fixed it.

    And fuck it is every politician that does this. Money is the evil drug they all crave.

    This month. I think by Feb when it will be business as usual as Ryan revs up the us vs them rhetoric and does nothing but stall anything Clinton tries to do and they all fall back in line.

    That's mainstream media bullshit. The Hillary/Saudi connection is something that's actually verified. Nice try, stupid cunt.

    We have Prop 107 this year in Colorado. I hope it passes for that exact reason.
