Donald Trump Would Have Lost If Bernie Sanders Had Been The Candidate


Correct, although between Clinton and Trump I do believe Clinton would have beed a better choice than Trump, but Bernie Sanders would have been a more better choice.

However, the Democratic Party had other ideas and favoured Clinton.

Now we can see how wrong they were as Bernie Sanders would have made America Great Again, with Trump we can only wait and see, that is if there will still be an America and the World after Trump. As it will only take one upset to Trump to go for an Armageddon and world annihilation. What have the Republicans done for us all.

Stop Making Sense

Andrew Buncombe reports for The Independent:

Image result for Donald Trump would have lost US election if Bernie Sanders had been the candidate“Right now in every major poll, national poll and statewide poll done in the last month, six weeks, we are defeating Trump often by big numbers, and always at a larger margin than Secretary Clinton is.”

So spoke Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton’s Democratic rival in the primary, when he appeared on the May 29 2016 edition of NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’.

It was not the first time the socialist former Mayor of Burlington had made the claim. And it was something that his supporters believed passionately.

Time after time, supporters of the white-haired, frequently cantankerous Democratic socialist, said the media was helping prepare a coronation for Ms Clinton in a way that was neither fair or democratic.

Afghanistan: The War Trump and Clinton Have Ignored


Yes, Afganistan is something that the next US Predisent will have to consider, but in respect of Trump, could it be that he has not mentioned because he does not know of or understand the Afgan situation, for he does not wish to make himself look stupid, or should I say more stupid and ignorant than he is already.

Stop Making Sense

Deb Riechmann and Robert Burns report for the Associated Press:

In this Oct. 3, 2016 file photo, Afghan civilians watch the site of a bicycle bomb explosion targeted an army vehicle in Kabul, Afghanistan. (AP Photo/Rahmat Gul)Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have said next to nothing about how they would handle the war in Afghanistan.

That’s remarkable, given the enormous U.S. investment in blood and treasure over the past 15 years — including two American deaths on Thursday — the resilience of the Taliban insurgency and the risk of an Afghan government collapse that would risk empowering extremists and could force the next president’s hands.

In addition to the two service members killed on Thursday, four others were wounded while assisting Afghan forces in the northern city of Kunduz.

President Barack Obama escalated the war shortly after he took office, but he fell short of his goal of compelling a political settlement between the Taliban and the Afghan government. The next president will face a new set of tough choices on Afghanistan early in his…

American Irrationalism


Stop Making Sense

Chris Hedges writes for Truthdig:

There is no shortage of signs of impending environmental catastrophe, including the melting of the polar ice caps and the rise of atmospheric carbon to above 400 parts per million. The earth’s sixth mass extinction is underway. It is not taking place because of planetary forces. Homo sapiens is orchestrating it. Americans are at the same time bankrupting themselves by waging endless and unwinnable wars. We have allowed our elites to push more than half the U.S. population into poverty through deindustrialization. We do nothing to halt the waves of nihilistic violence by enraged citizens who carry out periodic mass shootings in schools, malls, movie theaters and other public places. The political and financial elites flaunt their greed and corruption. Donald Trump appears to pay no federal income taxes. Hillary and Bill Clinton use their foundation as a tool for legalized bribery. Our largest…

Voter Suppression Is the Real Election Scandal


Yes the election could be rigged, but in the favour of Trump and not Hillary, as Trump makes out.

All voters should exercise their right to vote and if they are hindered in any way there should be a system in which there comments and complaints are taken seriously.

Stop Making Sense

Alice Speri reports for The Intercept:

The integrity of this year’s election is under attack — but not in the way Donald Trump claims it is. Ahead of last week’s final debate, the Republican nominee called the election “rigged” dozens of times — in at least 20 tweets sent in the course of a single weekend as well as at rallies across the country in which he called on supporters to show up in “certain areas” and watch the polls.

“And when I say ‘watch,’ you know what I’m talking about, right?” he told supporters in Ohio. “Go to your place and vote. And go pick some other place and go sit there with your friends and make sure it’s on the up and up,” he encouraged supporters in Michigan. “The only way we can lose, in my opinion — and I really mean this, Pennsylvania — is if…
