    What we have is a problem with corruption and lobbying these are the thing that make people worry the most, so basically if a candidate says he will fight corruption then that candidate has a high chance to get elected, right now we are 11 months before the election and the different parties havent presented their candidates but some people have already said they will run.

    Right now the most Trump like candidate we have is the ex-attorney general who is a conservative, he is known for putting in jail a lot of government officials who have committed acts of corruption and this April 1 there will be a march against the corruption and he with the president of the center democratic (a center-right part) will be the head of the march.

    I will try to focus more on the candidate than the party he is, still i dont like the conservative party stance on some social issues, for example they are against same sex marriage, something that people can do now, normally this would cause them to look bad in a first world country but recent polls (2016) show that only 43% of people support same sex marriage while the other 57% dont, which is better than the last time in 2012 where only 27% support it, is clear we are moving forward and i am happy with that.

    Realizing that she needed to sell working class voters on that she actually cared about jobs too wouldn't have hurt either.

    Its almost comical that Trump's flunkies in his party told the press , "We can't defend the coal miners paying for PBS each year ..." Trying to put it that Trump was all about helping them. Then cuts programs to fucking help them. Its the most insane deal ever.

    I half expect Trump flunkies to tell folks next , "Look , we can't expect for folks to pay for seniors Meals on Wheels..." Then passes a new healthcare law that raises their medication costs.

    I'd say that Smith all but saying FNC's morning show was not "News" was the most interesting part of that entire bit.

    Says the guy who was so convinced Trump wouldn't have a hope of winning that he wouldn't have to even consider things like who he'd nominate for SCOTUS. I wish people could stop pretending her campaign was the only important factor in what went down, since more and more Russian collusion is being uncovered from during the election for just one example.

    You can see them all now realizing ...boy we got played. We got played so hard. Its insane to watch how Trump screwed over the coal miners and low income voters.

    Yeah, the general idea here is that Trump is a buffoon, and that Merkel managed to do what she set out to do.

    It is still absolutely confusing to people here how he became president.

    If you're referring to the United States, you might want to check again...
    http://www.gallup.com/poll/117328/marriage.aspx

    Right now, it's in the 6 out of 10 in the U.S. support same sex marriage. That statistic is almost certainly going to trend even further in support of same sex marriage over time, as 3 out of 4 millenials support it.

    It's quickly becoming a losing issue for social conservatives. What with their predictions of Biblical Armageddon and the fury of the Lord reigning down upon civilization after the Obergefell v. Hodges ruling not coming true and all.

    10 bucks say they'll:

    A.) Blame Obama.

    B.) Rationalize it away.

    C.) Republicans: "USA! USA! USA!" Coal Miners: *CHEER!*

    If I said she was weak in the general, who was going to win if not Trump?

    No no no, I am not talking about the USA, i am talking about my country in South America, i call them conservatives because that is the name of the party "The conservatives"

    South America is not any jewel of progressive policies, only 6 countries have allowed same sex marriage, 3 have banned them, other 3 dont recognize and in 1 of it is illegal.

    Again... If you didn't even bother to show up in one state you lost during the primary and rarely showed up in another you lost during the primary, I am going to need to see Ivan Drago holding a ballot box before "Interference" actually starts to get anywhere close to the damage that plain old "Not Bothering To Show Up" did.
