2016 Presidential Election

What will likely happen

I try not to get involved in the business of prediction. It's a quick way to look like an idiot.
- Warren Ellis

Obviously no one knows what the future holds.
However, there are some things that we can predict with certainty anyway.
For instance, the sun will rise in the east tomorrow, people will continue to have to pay taxes, and we are about to elect someone president that a majority of the public absolutely loathes.

This Time Lesser Evil Voting is Utter Folly

I just wanted to say that, "utter folly". It's utter folly man.

I've noticed many Bernie supporters (former?) saying they might vote for the asshole Trump primarily to stop Hillary Clinton from becoming president. That seems to be the prevailing attitude for those who are going to vote in the upcoming Presidential election, stopping "the other one" from becoming president.

What the MSM is ignoring.

Over the weekend I heard the headline "Hillary increases her lead over Donald Trump". I looked up to see if she had hit 60%, and Trump had dropped to the twenties, because he had had such a bad week. When the numbers appeared on screen, I couldn't believe it, Trump was only five points behind Hillary. Trump is not running ads, has had a terrible week, his campaign is in disarray, and Hillary can't even get to 50%.

Don't Blame the Voters, Blame the Nominee and the Party.

I know that I have been writing a lot more than usual. I am generally not the type of person who shares a lot of my opinions in long, written rants. But I am currently going through one of my phases where politics seems to be on my mind constantly.

Why Hillary Clinton will lose the General Election to Donald Trump

As someone pointed out to me yesterday, some of my diaries are very short and more like comments- this I will admit is true. I work about 10 to 12 hours a day and visit our site during the workday; therefore, I do not have the time to write well-composed thesis (like many of yours). Moreover, in my role as a project manager, I have been conditioned to write something quick and to the point (ignore the details or the back-story).

This Party is Split

I have come to believe that the American Electorate is clearly splitting its parties, and we as the party of the 99% have an auspicious opportunity to affect generations to come.

The 2016 Democratic Primary, whatever its outcome, is spawning a party in places such as this. We no longer need newspapers for our information. We no longer tune into the mainstream media. We are not listening to them.
