    To the American refugees

    On behalf of my government, I am pleased to announce that we are accepting entry into our country of any American political or social refugees who are looking for a safner life away from USA war zone.

    We promise shelter, food, a chance for a new life. We also have corrupt politicians and bad politics, so you'll feel at home. But no circus! Except those you pay for an admission ticket and are over within an hour.

    Please have your American passport on your hand at the border patrol and be ready for inspection. We are accepting non-combatant refugees only. Politicians, political campaign members and journalists, including their friends and relatives are not permitted.

    Welcome to our country. May you make it great as you once did your own before you f... it up. Warning: your family Visas will expire in exactly 239 years after date of admission.

    Are you still in Spain? I can kind of speak Spanish. I asked an Argentinian in gitter about my Spanish and he said it was intelligible but ungrammatical. So that's what that is. :P

    Como estas hombre? Americans are stubborn though. I bet migration will be minimal to zero.

    Saw today at the gym that people are stealing/destroying/burning campaign signs in people's front yards. Facepalm.

    Facepalm to this too: Hacked Emails Show Clinton Campaign Communicated With State - ABC News

    This is the Clintons. He was putting women on their knees to suck his john, and pardoning the most wanted man in America and a personal friend just days before leaving the office. And she was telling those women to shutup and swallow the whole thing, while (literally) stealing the furniture from the Whitehouse on her way out. You will have an hard time finding any couple in America more lacking in moral and ethical integrity or any sort of capacity for regret or atonement. It shouldn't come as a surprise how many of their most fervent supporters forget how they hated the Clintons and excuse their past on a self-serving ideological basis, promoting on themselves exactly what they hate most about politicians; their hypocrisy. It's not a surprise as I said, but it is always shocking.

    And this and many other stories will continue to happen on the years to come, as there has been no one in America since the Nixon age so rich in lack of ethical boundaries as the Clintons. And in 4 or 8 years, when it is all over and the clan has nothing else to prove and too old to care, they'll pull their coup de grāce on the naive population -- because blow jobs, stealing china and pardoning close-friend criminals is what you do when you still want to have a career. Imagine when you don't.

    EDIT:

    I have been a supporter of the Democratic Party since I started to care about these things. For the past 15 years I have been a financial supporter too. Every election year I have sent my contribution across our borders. I didn't this year because I always waited until after the primaries. And with Hillary elected, I could not in good conscious support the campaign. But, if you remember, I started this whole affair still believing that she would be the least of both evils. I don't think like that anymore. It's become too obvious too unbearable the web of corruption surrounding her and how much she represents the degradation of meritocracy and the systematic destruction of the democratic values I hold closest to the heart.

    I'm firmly confident today that obnoxious and racist we call Trump is in fact the least of both evils. His strings are unattached from the web of power and we can trust him to be controlled by the the hawks of the American political system. Trump provides much more confidence of a proper and fairer application of the system of balances and checks. While Clinton is the very acid that corrodes that system. These days I just know that my vote would go to Trump, if only I could vote.

    While I don't personally agree with you, in practice, I at least understand your reasoning. The supposed danger of a Trump presidency is mostly speculative. He's never actually been in a position to make public domestic or foreign policy, so we really only have his words to guess as to what he might do. On the other hand, the corruption of the Clintons is well-documented and established. Hillary sold weapons to Saudi Arabia, while she was secretary of state, and those weapons were then used to kill innocents in Yemen. She funded and materially supported the rebels in Syria, which ultimately became ISIS, and are affiliated with Al Qaeda. She destroyed evidence in an FBI investigation, after she was ordered to turn it over. She rigged the primary election, to defeat Bernie Sanders, and then paid him off to support her. I could go on and on.

    The world would be better off if both of them died in a fire, but to be honest, Trump is the lesser of the two evils, this time. Make no mistake though; Trump is also evil.
    What can this strange device be?
    When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
    It's got wires that vibrate and give music
    What can this thing be that I found?

    Though I was too chicken to vote for Johnson, I am hoping 3rd party can get over 10% this year and hopefully make people think it's more than a 2 party system for the next election. If I thought he'd win, I would've voted for him.

    Both people are crap, I just dislike Trump less. Only reason I carry on is because some people make Hillary out to be this great person, which she is not.

    Well, it looks like the circus just got into town. Jury is still out on how it is going to perform for the audience.

    Here is the next POTUS election prediction:
    Kim Kadarshian (Make America Great Again) vs Donald Trump (America is great now with "A Beautiful Wall")

    Kim wins by a landslide.

    Going to be a historic presidency, good or bad. In my lifetime, I have only ever had politician presidents. With the reps controlling house and senate now, something interesting will happen. Only thing I'm worried about is air pollution control measures being repealed. Air is terrible here, I'm all for pollution restrictions.

    I don't get why science isn't more prominent in politics to be perfectly honest. Republicans vs Democrats aside, stupid is as stupid does. I wish people cared more about the environment. I've thought about the extinction of the species. On some level, I do wholeheartedly believe that we deserve it. Bummer, man.

    All comes down to money. But living in the central valley of California makes me 100% against anything that's going to pollute. I breathe the worst air in the nation everyday. You can see it in the air, it looks like someone ........ed in the clouds.

    It also comes down to... faith, as our lovely friend Trump has showed us. All we need is one lovely president who don't believe in the climate change to completely shut down any progress to stop it.

    Hate to break it to you, but species have been going extinct long before humans started having any effect.

    You're conflating pollution with climate change. Also, the US president doesn't have the power to unilaterally shut down anything.

    Well, on the ballot you can write in whoever you want in any race. It will practically guarantee that your vote is statistically insignificant, but you can. There is also a very real benefit to voting third party. If a third party candidate wins 5% of the vote, the FEC calls them a "minor party" and they get access to up to $10 million to fund their next election (2020).
