    I swear, I could run my DOG against Trump, and I'd expect her to win despite being a dog AND being female. Because it's Trump. So then why do I still have this feeling that even with all the thoughtful, issues-related candidates, even with all the dissatisfied, well-spoken Republicans I've spoken with, do I still get the feeling Trump's gonna win again?

    So much white privilege on stage. Pocahontas was the only person of color. I wish she spoke in her native language Cherokee.

    love Castro, Yang, Bernie, maybe Harris. IMO candidates should tell us how they are going to pay for their ideas

    What you all should have learned is that your country is on the edge of civil war. 1. Wake up. 2.Pull your head out of your behind. 3. Stop trusting your checks and balances. They stop working or actually have already stopped working because trump showed that they are only as good as the president's willingness to recognize them. He has said over and over how anything that's against his opinion is fake and wrong even if it's an election result that doesn't show him as winner. He also said how the guys with the guns and muscle (bikers,cops and majority of red state/gun owners) are ready to take to streets. You constantly read and hear these folks/muscles saying exactly that too. Now sit with your pop corn and continue enjoying the trump show. Don't get surprise when you wake up and find yourself in a dictatorship with people hanging from poles all over the place. Just like you hear it happening in some "shit hole" countries. You all are so sure that the "best country in the world" will keep on keeping on, no? This happened to Every superpower that has gone down and every one of them has at some point, exactly when it's people felt like you do; oh we are and always be the greatest

    Pandering to illegals in Spanish, promising illegals healthcare while taxing everyone else for it. Doesn’t sound like the dems are starting off on the right foot lol.

    The Democratic debates are a bunch of whiny kids who know nothing about everything, pulling each other's hair in a schoolyard to come up with one whiny kid who will fight Bruce Lee.
