I do not understand

          I am not in anyway a single issue voter, but really how is this man's candidacy even a discussable topic. People like Trump, and Bloomberg need to be excluded by definition!!!!

          Give me even one valid reason to think otherwise. And, before you start, unalienable right is not a reason, of any stripe: there are plenty of valid reasons to exclude …

… individuals about whom we are not allowed to describe for fear of being chastised for our uncouth language.

How can this even be real?

          Until we work out a procedure to ban individuals like Trump, and Bloomberg from political, and other positions of power … we will continue to live in a morally bankrupt society!!!!

RIP

he's the establishment's choice! THAT'S why his candidacy is a discuss-able topic. Geez - I thought you knew that! Pleasantry

On the other hand under the heading "This Just In": Maybe the Boy Scouts are coming to an end, and dare we hope the Catholic Church may meet with a similar fate. (Caution: Link will open in new window.)

@PriceRip
to come to your senses? Just give in - don't fight it. The Boy Scouts have now understood what happens - we can only hope the same fate befalls the CC, but that's harder to come by.

and Trump are the type of candidates that will run in the future. Elitist self centered people of wealth used to having their whims catered to. Cut out the brown nosing pols we have now and just ask support directly from the other ultra wealthy. Why bother with the rest of us, as long as one person shows up to vote democracy is preserved.

With Bernie growing in the polls, winning primaries I can't see the elite tolerating it at all. That's just too much power in the hands of the people. They'll agree to find a way to make sure it never happens again.

OK - what's the definition?

Who gets to decide who does or doesn't meet it?

          In this anonymous iteration of the internet, we need to be careful to restate (ad nauseam) the obvious. As everyone should understand, we are talking about a social construct. Each (to varying degrees) of the members participating in the social construct participates in the process of defining the parameters of that social construct.

          A rather extensive set of documents written on the order of 250 years ago laid out some details and suggestions of an adaptive algorithm for designing and maintaining a civil society in the USofA.
