I find it very strange that a nation thinks that a vote for a presidental candidate that is not a Republican or a Democrat is a waste.
Brain Washed.

What is different with Islam?

Target identification failure. Show me on the map this country called Islam.
Or for that matter show me this country called KKK?

You can fight a war against a country. You can't fight a war against a thing or an idea. If you try you lose by default!

This stupid idea of fighting an idea is the same stupid idea that Charles Manson had when he tried to incite a race war helter skelter.

How are you going to fight this enemy that is in a few scattered buildings all over the globe? Are you going to violate the sovereignty of hundreds of countries and station troops in every mosque so that when some idiot gives a sermon calling for 6th century standards they jump out and gun him down?

Or are you going to commit genocide and slaughter billions of innocents just to kill less than 50,000 fools? If you are hell bent on the slaughter of billions, perhaps you should move the discussion and reason for it to the Global Warming Solutions thread.

It's one thing for the average citizen to vote for these 3rd party candidates, but does the electoral college recognize them?

If they win, they win.

ISIS?? Do you mean "al-dowla al-islaamiyya fii-il-i’raaq wa-ash-shaam" (D.A.E.SH) or translated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant?

We are not at war with them. They are at war with the Christian State and the Jewish State. Christians are not a country in the present world.

Our Military knows who should be the next President

Military troops favor Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson for president over Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, according to a new survey.

Johnson garnered 38.7 percent of the active duty vote, versus 30.9 for Trump, and 14.1 for Clinton, according to the survey, which was conducted via the popular military personality Doctrine Man.

The vice chairman of the Washington, D.C., GOP party plans to resign from his post and vote for libertarian candidate Gary Johnson in November, the longtime Republican operative told The Daily Beast. Gary Teal, a delegate at the Republican convention, said he had already told fellow delegates that he will resign. “If I’m not going to vote for the nominee, then I have to resign my position,” Teal said. “I’m prepared to do that.” Three additional delegates from Washington, D.C., joined Teal to announce their support for the libertarian candidate. Justin Dillon, Kris Hammond, and Peter Lee—who were wearing #NeverTrump buttons—spoke to The Daily Beast in the hallway of Quicken Loans Arena, just minutes after Donald Trump finished his keynote speech on Thursday night. “The RNC has bungled this nomination process by having bad rules,” Teal said, referring to a controversy over nominating rules that caused chaos on the convention floor Monday. “And now at this convention, they’ve sacrificed integrity in favor of unity.” In a CNN poll released last week, Johnson polled at 13 percent against the field of Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

First it was Glenn Beck who said he'd likely take his vote away from the Republican party to give it to the Libertarians and now we have yet another doing the same.

Former Governor of Florida, and defeated candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, Jeb Bush, has been flirting with the idea of getting behind the Johnson/Weld ticket for a bit now. Seeing as how his disdain for Trump would heavily effect his willingness to vote him into office, it wouldn't be too farfetched to think he'd turn his attention to the next best thing.

According to Politico, Bush and Johnson have had conversations which, according to Johnson, were initiated by Bush himself.

or probably one of the best uses of the "Make America ________ again" theme
Make America Hate Again

Hate is a simple emotion. Easy to queue up. Like all the other simpleton "problems" that "we'll fix that" is going to create. Trump wall builders, Trump Deportation Airlines, Trump Prisons ... he'll leave office making 1000 times more money that Clinton did with speaking fees.

Remember 1/2 the population has an IQ 100 or less. And while they were in Cleveland the rest of the country had an IQ boost.

It is easy to fool the fools. Just remember that is democracy!

I wonder ... are we going to see a bunch of Trump towers in Russia? Or should that be the Union of Soviet Trump/Putin Republics?

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_DEM_2016_DNC_EMAILS?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2016-07-23-11-41-34
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A cache of more than 19,000 emails from Democratic party officials, leaked in advance of Hillary Clinton's nomination at the party's convention next week in Philadelphia, details the acrimonious split between the Democratic National Committee and Clinton's former rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders.
...
Although Wikileaks' posting of the emails Friday did not disclose the identity of who provided the private material, those knowledgeable about the breach said last month that Russian hackers had penetrated the DNC computer system.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/22/us/politics/donald-trump-foreign-policy-interview.html
SANGER: Since your time is limited, let me ask you about Russia. You’ve been very complimentary of Putin himself.

TRUMP: No! No, I haven’t.

SANGER: You said you respected his strength.

TRUMP: He’s been complimentary of me. I think Putin and I will get along very well.
...
SANGER: I was just in the Baltic States. They are very concerned obviously about this new Russian activism, they are seeing submarines off their coasts, they are seeing airplanes they haven’t seen since the Cold War coming, bombers doing test runs. If Russia came over the border into Estonia or Latvia, Lithuania, places that Americans don’t think about all that often, would you come to their immediate military aid?

TRUMP: I don’t want to tell you what I’d do because I don’t want Putin to know what I’d do. I have a serious chance of becoming president and I’m not like Obama, that every time they send some troops into Iraq or anyplace else, he has a news conference to announce it.

SANGER: They are NATO members, and we are treaty-obligated ——

TRUMP: We have many NATO members that aren’t paying their bills.

SANGER: That’s true, but we are treaty-obligated under NATO, forget the bills part.

TRUMP: You can’t forget the bills. They have an obligation to make payments. Many NATO nations are not making payments, are not making what they’re supposed to make. That’s a big thing. You can’t say forget that.

SANGER: My point here is, Can the members of NATO, including the new members in the Baltics, count on the United States to come to their military aid if they were attacked by Russia? And count on us fulfilling our obligations ——

TRUMP: Have they fulfilled their obligations to us? If they fulfill their obligations to us, the answer is yes.

HABERMAN: And if not?

TRUMP: Well, I’m not saying if not. I’m saying, right now there are many countries that have not fulfilled their obligations to us.

give the man credit for being a great orator.



You're kidding right?


Can you stand up & give an oration for 77 minutes?


As a matter of fact, I can and do.

In front of how many?

No, it is are they forced to be there?

2. No one FORCED the 'World' to buy those derivatives. Face it, you all got greedy and bought snake oil. Caveat emptor.

Not the WORLD, but Fannie and Freddie were forced to buy them. I wonder which President signed the CRA which mandated this forced buying?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_carbon_dioxide_emissions

Australia - 17.3
...
United States - 16.5

Where is Glenn? Leading the USA in greenhouse gas?!

Now can we stop bashing and realize MK is correct. Every country past the mid-point on that list has to reduce its population to zero to have an actual impact.

@jan - Islands likely have to burn shipped in dirty coal/oil to make electric power. They won't have hydro power. They may, or may not have solar possibility as many islands create a lot of cloud by upsetting the winds. As to wave/tide many are surrounded by coral reefs, which must not be damaged. Wind might be possible, but shipping the turbines might be too expensive.

On point (2):

Don't be too sure of that. Citizenship is not a requirement to collect Social Security, nor is residency in the USA.

http://www.factcheck.org/2009/03/social-security-for-illegal-immigrants/
We’ll just quickly note that illegal immigrants are broadly disqualified from collecting benefits from government programs, according to U.S. Code, with only limited exceptions. Those exceptions are:

  • Emergency medical care (which includes emergency labor and delivery)
  • Emergency disaster relief that is provided for the short term and is not a cash payment
  • Limited immunizations and testing, and treatment of symptoms of communicable diseases
  • Certain community programs, such as soup kitchens or crisis counseling, as specified by the Attorney General
  • Limited housing or community development assistance to those already receiving it in 1996

These are the only circumstances under which illegal immigrants can lawfully receive government assistance. Notably absent from this list is any type of Social Security benefits. To repeat: Illegal immigrants cannot legally receive Social Security benefits, and Congress isn’t about to vote on legislation that would change that.

Dull The Donald said he would cut taxes, increase military spending, increase infrastructure spending, spend more on education among other things.
He didn't say how it would get paid for. Inflation perhaps?

He'll cut farm subsidies to zero and need to take in another 10 million illegals to work at 1/10 the minimum wage picking the crops on the farms creating a North Korea famine right here in Amerika.
