So, hows it look over there in the States?  Been hearing stuff, wondering how the feet on the ground are taking it.

The best we can hope for is impeachment procedings to commence immediately after inauguration ... regardless of who wins the election.

Yep, that's how it looks to me though the media is doing their best to blur things.  Impeachment proceedings for everyone!

Am curious if this is due to the current nominees, or a general opinion of yours. Would you feel the same had Sanders and a less creepy Republican (I'd say Cruz, but he seems scary too) made the final cut?

Yes. Absolutely. I'm sick and tired of the bipolarization in today's politics where the concept and word "compromise" is oft neglected or used as a sign of weakness in one's opponent. There is too much "my way or not at all" attitude that prevents good things from happening.  "I'm against it because I'm a lifelong Republican and a Democrat suggested it!" (or vice-versa) ... That attitude needs to go away - fast.

A friend of mine shared this video which I think is rather appropriate here:

I think this is needed for all.  It helps give a basic understanding in how power works.  Be aware this applies not only to governments but to everything in life, Submersed's Libertarian Corporate State would just shuffle the keys around.

I'm so ready for it to be over.  Every commercial break is 2/3rds political ads.

I think I am voting Gary Johnson.  I would like to have Trump more than Clinton, but they are both scumbags.  Since my voice does not matter statistically, I will vote my conscience.

If I were a betting man. I say Hillary wins. I have a feeling it won't be a close election at all.

It'll be EXTREMELY close with the electoral college and votes. Trump has Florida, Hillary has California. It'll be tight.

I agree, she's going to win comfortably.

Excellent piece of propaganda!  AND a very, very accurate description of what liberals are feeling.  They lost all power.  No one listens or cares about their sanctimonious bullshit anymore.  They don't know what to do now that calling someone racist doesn't work anymore, and they have to actually try and converse without bullying.

Now of course there were many more tweets, many of them just like Obamas, but lets not talk about those...they don't fit the agenda.

Wolph, you have an interesting religion.  You believe you know the truth based on liberal reporting.  Very curious.

I don't carry with me the illusion that we are going to find the perfect man for the job, why would he want it anyways.  Trump?  He doesn't put on this show pretending to be someone else.  I know his type, I worked with CEO's in my last job.  He is NOT a career politician, he has not spent his life trying to manipulate the public, and so he is really bad at it.  Will he fuck a few things up?  Most likely.  Will he bring us closer to socialism?  No.  All this twitter crap...I could not care less.  He is not afraid to be himself, whoever that is, and I respect him for it.  Finally we have someone in office who has shown he knows how to get stuff done, not just spin the political wheels to grease his own palms.
