Hell... The elections truly are unpredictable. And to think I thought Rubio was going to be the next POTUS...

This leaves only Trump and Kasich as relatively-strong republican candidates, though Trump is FAR ahead of Kasich. Indeed, it seems Trump can't be stopped now.

Thoughts?

I won't support either, though Trump is preferable to Clinton. He wouldn't be able to do crunk, and has less blood on his hands.

Austin Petersen , 2016 with Adam Kokesh 2020 is the best course for this country and then the world.

Who would have thought the Republican race would be decided before the Democrats! So much for a contested convention!

Bernie needs to leave, he should have been gone more than a month ago. He is harming his party's frontrunner.

I would put chances of winning at Clinton 75% Trump 25%, mainly because the Democrats have a higher support floor and the female vote would side massively with Clinton. Will be interesting to watch.

I don't really like either, but Trump will have to be my vote.

I've found Trump's campaign to be an interesting. He's, well different. He's never been a politician, he makes sure his words are heard. No other candidate has had this much media coverage in the race. He's promising change, and as he says, "Hyuge Change". He acknowledges that the US is not what it was, and lots of people like that. And for someone like that, he's doing a damn good job.

Do I think Trump would make a good president? eh.... but Hillary is pretty much the crooked politician that Trump says are the problem in the US. And he's kind of right.

Thanks for your words of support, but we only take in countries who can agree less than 5% growth is too little, and most importantly, sovereign states. ^_^

Also, Briscs would sound better.

Well we can leech their oil and kick them out anytime.

GDP Growth Rate
Brazil: -3% GDP growth in 2015
Russia: -3.9% GDP growth in 2015
India: 7.3% GDP growth in 2015
China: 6.9% GDP growth in 2015
South Africa: 1.4% GDP growth in 2015

GDP/Cap Growth over 5 years
Brazil: 8.63% (#43)
Russia: 4.53% (#52)
India: 31.12% (#6)
China: 49.13% (#1)
South Africa: 2.76% (#60)

3/5 of these countries don't even meet the 2% "you didn't fuck up this year congratulations" GDP growth baseline for developed countries. Two of them had their economies shrink. Their GDP growth is not that great, some of them have mediocre/bad investment situations.

BRICS is just a media/geopolitics hack buzzword that's not really useful anymore. It's really just IC + some of the Next Eleven.

Just for a brief moment, we're fixing that.

Presidents can do what they want. Trump's just, at base, really untaught and dumb about polit, or does like that way, and the two national gatherings in America are both conservative as well, so that's opening the gate to hell.

Also, Trump is conservative - I don't know how anyone can say he is not conservative, he is just more conservative than most the Republicans.

Clinton, if she does 100% everything she says she wants to, it would still be way better than Trump doing 50% what he says he will.

Vote Trump make America a third world country again!


Mm, I would say the Democrats are closer to this, militarism and closed borders generally bring in (and keep) your money and resources.

Bernie needs to leave, he should have been gone more than a month ago. He is harming his party's frontrunner.

I don't understand this thought path, I'm not for or against anybody leaving (except policy-wise - what they say they will do). I would understand it if you were a Clinton supporter, but I don't think you are. If one fellow ran, they'd get all the votes, if two fellows, run, they'd on average get more votes than 3 fellows, and so on, but for the best customisation of policies, as many fellows as possible should run.

He's, well different.


What really stands him out from the rest of the Republicans? How makes him "different"?

he makes sure his words are heard.


How's that?

He's promising change, and as he says, "Hyuge Change".


But what specifically?

BRICS is just a media/geopolitics hack buzzword that's not really useful anymore.


These 5 countries are lightly allied, pretty powerful (except for Mzansi) countries, and meet every year, sometimes making a few organisations between themselves.

Do you think about where these moneys and resources come from? Stolen, from other countries, no less. There's no gain of money and resources, it's just going from one site to another, and at the cost of taking lives away, of both enslaved homelanders (if there is a draft), and foreign innocent folk, it's not a hassle, it's a filthy wart.

As for closed borders, I support maximal freedom, of folk in all countries. It would be a terrible curtailing of freedom to not let folk exit, a hallmark of a dictatorship with a demographic problem. Even Trump does not support this.
