I figured let's create a master thread for the world event of the year. After all, who won't be watching people jockey viciously for the position of most powerful person in the world?

As of now the situation is as thus:

Republican - Trump running ahead of the pack surprisingly.
Democrat - Less clear, Clinton and Sanders are still duking it out, though Clinton has many more super-delegates to her name.

So this is a thread to post about anything related to the race. Have a favourite candidate to plump for? Feel the system is biased? Angry at the political establishment? Post it here. Hopefully we can get more discussion going when things get heated up!

Personally of all the candidates, I like Clinton the most, and failing that, Trump. Of course, like is a very subjective and relative word.

-Latest-

Republican
Trump: 329
Cruz:231
Rubio: 110
Kasich: 25
Carson: Dropped out

Democrat

Counting Super Delegates
Clinton: 1066
Sanders: 432

More interesting stuff about the idiot in chief doing everything to sabotage the ACA.

Trump is really trying to undo all of the president Obama's achievements.

He's the most disgusting human being that ever lived in the White House.

The criminal at the head of the EPA is finally doing it.

If you plan on using solar energy then you should hurry in doing it because the FAKE president Trump administration will make the cost of renewable energy triple.

If you plan on using solar energy then you should hurry in doing it because the FAKE president Trump administration will make the cost of renewable energy triple.

You know, the very core of the problem is that he actually is the real president with a real administration for now

As for repealing the energy plan, it is a profound stupidity, of course. But it won't save the oil industry which has been on a downward trend already before Obama; it's just the way the society and economy is going. I also think that many have invested too much into clean energy to just abandon things, so I could imagine that repealing that plan won't have as much effect as one may think. Or maybe this is wishful thinking on my part. The future will tell, of course.

How sad he wants to tear down the Iran deal when almost no country outside the States wants to. Just populist pandering to his base.

That's not the only thing this unpatriotic criminal is doing. He's working full on in sabotaging the ACA.
He proved once again that he's a traitor by not enabling the new sanctions against Russia which was passed by 95 % of the members of Congress.

There's a little hope though. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-10-12/congress-oks-expanded-protections-for-federal-whistleblowers .

This will at least protect patriotic people from being abused by this tyrant and future abusers would will become president. Of course since Trump is mentally ill, he'll probably refuse to comply. He seriously need to be impeached!

Is it finally the beginning of the end for this illegitimate president?

The contrast in his China visit is quite sharp.

Trump, The complete novice in government and diplomacy with zero experience in politics until his old age, but a life time as a celebrity and free wheeling businessman,

Versus.

Xi, the hardened career politician who has steadily risen through the ranks over decades and consistently proven that he CAN lead, be it at the city, provincial or nation level. Say what you want about his ruthlessness but he's experienced. No one lasts long or rises high in the Party if he isn't competent.

But that's democracy for you, people often vote for completely superficial reasons and not experience. Give me an increase in my material life over free speech any day.

Practically every leaders around the World are smarter than this Trump clown.
You've noticed how tough he tries to sound at home but when he's actually abroad, the coward comes out.
What a pathetic man.

I don't believe he is a coward, only narcissist. Some of his actions made me question his mental state, however. And maybe he is doing that because people are actually more interested in such people? Self obsessed, passively aggressive and arrogant people? Notice how he wasn't elected because of his ideas and plans he had for America, but rather because of his personality.
