Listening to the Trump last night I kept hearing Jack Klompus (the guy who lives next to Morty Seinfeld at the Del Boca Vista condos down in Florida) confused.gif Also, his hand gestures (and sleeve length) really do draw attention to his short fingers...

Everyone I know who plans to vote is doing so not because they want "their candidate" to win, but because they are more afraid of the other side winning. The whole thing is a joke.

Another SF member who doesn't know there are other candidates. And it has friends.

Oh, I meant to say VITREOUS. Nothing to see here (literally, for the next two weeks), move along.

That's delusional, they'd both appoint complete fucking garbage justices. Both big government stooges.

Read Sotamayor's Strieff dissent and come back here and defend a right-wing court.

Seriously what is it with these Richie Rich guys with suit sleeves that cover their wedding rings? I remember a pic from a 2012 GOP debate and only Santorum (I think) was showing some cuff.

Immigration and Syrian refugees would be an example of how they differ on policy. Hillary is guaranteed to do all of the things you mentioned. Trump might do some of them. As far as not voting in order to protest our choices, that's not going to do me any good if Hillary gets into office. Breaking away from the current system could take a generation or longer. We don't have that much time.

You could vote for a third party.  At the very least it would show the major parties they need to adopt more  planks of the platform.  Imagine a scenario where Trump loses by 2-3% and Johnson has 5-6%.  Odds are he took from both evenly, but it will be sold as Johnson cost Trump the election, and perhaps the Republicans won't alienate fiscal conservatives and libertarian leaning Republicans again.

Sotamayor is good on one issue and one issue only - the 4th Amendment.  The rest is garbage - interestingly - the rest of the court is garbage on the 4th Amendment.

I feel like whichever party loses is going to look at the election and chalk the loss up to having an awful candidate. How do you really make any policy analysis from looking at the test cases of Trump and Hillary?

Are you serious? Trump is a test case if ever there was one. If you cannot draw conclusions from his phenomenon than you should get out of data analysis.

I don't know.  If you look at most of the analysis from say the VA gubernatorial election, Rs chalked it up to the L candidate even if exit  polling showed he took from the D candidate.

Uh, one data point does not a trend make.
