Sorry for long-ass post and hope I don't get flamed (if I do, I'll do my best to ignore it so as not to derail this thread given lewd is for lewd, not political battles), but just thought I'd share how shitty I think the candidate selections are this election period in general terms (read TL;DR if need be)..

TL;DR: My result for this quiz thing has been Bernie, but I'm more of a BERNIE AND WILL BUST ANYWAY guy than a BERNIE OR BUST guy. Basically I'm all BUST. All or most candidates this election period are framing things in misleading terms that will affect the quality of the policies they implement, and make the effect of their presidential office be very suboptimal for American workers, either in relative or absolute terms. In addition, political polarization will probably increase regardless of whose president. Especially since people are so desperate that either party's constituents are in denial of character traits that render their choice candidates unreliable or difficult to keep accountable. So no hopes anywhere in this election--its all just theatre giving an appearance of choice without having resolves the dilemmas of our times; might as well abstain from voting.

Longer version: Taken this several times before for this particular election period. Ended up with Bernie Sanders every time--I wasn't and still am not a full on Bernie enthusiast though, because I figured he would fail on the majority of his promises, especially when the chances of an effective form of grassroots activism arising again is very low without focusing on restructuring the distribution of work by adapting to improvements in productivity and getting rid of the precariat. Bernie doesn't seem to be focused on that, except when he talks about co-ops which is only tangentially related. And his strategy for increasing the amount of co-ops is not going to be particularly good (I suspect he'll use more government than would actually need to be used). Further, most of his policies won't be that groundbreaking either and just increase governmental bloat, making it more difficult to actually provide services where it might be needed--although that's inevitable since the increasing size of the State is a crutch for maintained long-term growth. Bernie is just a potential postponement or amelioration of crises at hist best, or a mediocre policymaker/policy-evaluator that reinforces or maintains continuing econ trends at his worst.

As for Trump and Hillary--just like most other candidates (including Bernie), economically they're focusing on the loss of manufacturing and industrial jobs as a way to frame their policy decisions, which ignores that you can't turn back the clock on technological improvements that have comparatively highly impacted the first world labor market, especially when it would require sacrificing efficiency; in fact, turning back the clock will affect domestic capital and relative national wealth even if it'll benefit worker's relative wage (but not their absolute purchasing power). What we need is a solution that takes both absolute wealth and relative earnings into account. In addition, many of the candidates seem to want to deal with outsourcing while trying to restrict or regulate migration of cheap labor to the U.S. (this includes Bernie), when both high immigration and increased outsourcing are related to an international race to the bottom by international companies when it comes to the price of labor. That's why you can't do both. Trump and Hillary each individually have a bunch of other issues I have with them, but I'm not going to go any deeper on that because I'll probably just incite a flame war in here from both sides or something. Regardless of who gets voted in, though, it won't stop political polarization and certain disturbing precedents that have already been set during this election period regardless of what candidate you support.

At the end of the day, since our choices are now Trump v. Hillary, they are not worth voting for, imo. To me its p. much guaranteed the next presidency will be shitty at this point, full of both indignations and disappointment. Nothing that will "shock" the system back into some phenomenal rebound; at most just a lackluster apparent improvement in a few indexes that don't necessarily indicate how the lives of individual Americans are, and maybe a few disasters/blunders in social or foreign policy.

Perhaps I should have took your advice and not discussed politics lol

You shouldn't discuss politics on the internet if you aren't damn well prepared to deal with people disagreeing with you. Not that hard in theory but you know...

@RevonZZ Will you please stop telling me to chill out every time I get even a little bit direct? Thanks.

Oh I am perfectly willing to discuss politics on the internet. The problem is shitheads like you will decide to butt in and "shit on me" for having a different opinion than you. If you don't support what I support, I couldn't care less. The fact that you decide to go out of your way and threaten me because I support someone you don't is childish and pathetic. You're acting like a 12 year old and it's sad. And it isn't just on this thread, you act like a child all the time and it is really annoying to see people like you bring the forum down. So if you ever wanna talk about politics with me in a calm manner, you can PM me or whatever. I am always game. But if you're gonna act like a kid because I support Hillary, then you can just stay quiet instead of giving yourself a worse reputation than you already have. Like I said before, I am down to talk politics peacefully, hit me up. If you're gonna hurl your bullshit my way then just step back and realize that people are gonna have different opinions than you.

Wow wow dude I didn't think you'd take it that way. No harm intended, I'm sorry.
So why do you support Hillary Clinton (this isn't off-topic right)?

Also I don't think my reputation is that bad, maybe people just don't want to tell me they dislike me.

I support Clinton because of her stance on LGBT rights. I know a lot of gays and trans that are discriminated every day. My girlfriend identifies as pan-sexual and if for some reason we do not work out, I do not want her rights to be infringed on in the future. I think the legalization of gay marriage is the greatest thing to happen in my lifetime. I believe that Trump will be a threat to the LGBT community, even though he claims otherwise. I also disagree with Trump greatly on his plan to "ban all Muslims from entering the U.S." because, unless I am mistaken, the 1st Amendment promises that the government will not infringe on religious beliefs.

I accept your apology and I know I may have went a little overboard with my response, which I also apologize for.

You know HC was against gay marriage up until 2012 right? The same year public support for legalizing gay marriage became >50%. Have you considered voting for Jill Stein? She's much more progressive than Clinton and a 3rd party candidate (a vote against the 2 party oligarchy).

http://www.hrc.org/2016RepublicanFacts/d...e-equality

Whether that's true or not, at least she hasn't gone on record saying he'd "strongly consider" appointing judges to overturn same-sex marriage decision (Though it's rather nebulous which one he's talking about.)

DT also used the "I'm not racist; my best friends are black!" argument on this topic:

Donald Trump Wrote:"It’s weird. You see these great [people who now support gay marriage], because [they get criticized otherwise]. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”

That being said, he did endorse Elton John's marriage to his boyfriend, and disagreed with Kim Davis' decision to deny a marriage license to a gay couple (at least initially. He reversed his decision later.)

I think all of us can agree that both candidates this cycle are pathological flip-floppers. All we can really do is vote for the one that would do the least damage in the long run.

I think the legalization of gay marriage is the greatest thing to happen in my lifetime. I believe that Trump will be a threat to the LGBT community, even though he claims otherwise. I also disagree with Trump greatly on his plan to "ban all Muslims from entering the U.S." because, unless I am mistaken, the 1st Amendment promises that the government will not infringe on religious beliefs.

I accept your apology and I know I may have went a little overboard with my response, which I also apologize for.

You know HC was against gay marriage up until 2012 right? The same year public support for legalizing gay marriage became >50%. Have you considered voting for Jill Stein? She's much more progressive than Clinton and a 3rd party candidate (a vote against the 2 party oligarchy).

Whether that's true or not, at least she hasn't gone on record saying he'd "strongly consider" appointing judges to overturn same-sex marriage decision (Though it's rather nebulous which one he's talking about.)

DT also used the "I'm not racist; my best friends are black!" argument on this topic:

Donald Trump Wrote:"It’s weird. You see these great [people who now support gay marriage], because [they get criticized otherwise]. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”

That being said, he did endorse Elton John's marriage to his boyfriend, and disagreed with Kim Davis' decision to deny a marriage license to a gay couple (at least initially. He reversed his decision later.)

I think all of us can agree that both candidates this cycle are pathological flip-floppers. All we can really do is vote for the one that would do the least damage in the long run.

Yeah Trump also ran another time, his views where a lot different from what they are now, look it up.
I think voting for a 3rd party would make a lot of sense this election given its strange nature. It's a vote for democracy and let's be real here; this election makes a laughing stock out of the 2-party system.

It's a little late for that though...

Not if the voters actually get a clue and register unaffiliated. I do not see how anyone would not, the electoral college has been a farce since the advent of widely available telecommunication systems

Voting for a third party/unaffiliated is pretty much worthless.

Could someone here perhaps give me a bit of a rundown of why Trump is so controversial? A lot of what I hear about him seems very appealing to the average person, in my opinion anyway. That being said, I don't actually hear that much about him - only when they mention him on BBC News or so.
