    [US] ~ Presidential Primary

    The United States Presidential Primary Election is on the horizon. I am wondering what people (even from other countries) think of the candidates. Especially since some candidates are causing many Americans to threaten to leave the country if they're elected (i.e. Trump). So, you may have some American neighbors in the future.

    If you are looking for more information on the candidates, there is a list of them all here.

    I am not going to pick a candidate in the OP, just to avoid favoritism because there are many candidates to review. This is not just a question of whether or not you support them, but what you think of them, their ideas, their promises, etc.

    Discuss. :)

    I think anyone that votes for Trump needs to question their integrity and what they value.
    If you put a rich man in charge of your country (especially one with a questionable intelligence level), you are asking for trouble.

    Just personally, I think your tax shield's will become an even bigger problem.

    I think most of Trump's supporters either do it as a joke, or they support him because they truly have hatred in their heart. I feel that there is a lot of misunderstanding of other cultures in this country. I mean at the end of the day, Trump cannot and will not do half of the things he's promising to do. Some people argue that he knows business and economics, but not really he inherited his wealth and he knows a lot more about spending money than he does about saving it. If he's elected, I'll be more mad at the fact that nothing will get done because he's a radical asshole that nobody will agree with than the idea that he may fuck up the country.

    Has any candidate/president ever done half the things they promised they would in recent history?

    Some tried at least.

    The presedential election this time is a joke. Honestly the names you frequently hear are Trump, Sanders and Clinton. Trump is an obvious disaster, Clinton has her followers thanks to half-assed feminists (and that is not an insult, just implying that being an actual feminist doesn't mean voting for someone because she's female.) and I doubt that the age gap between Sanders and the 'young' USA will help the man.

    You missed my point entirely. Trump, even if elected, would never come close to having enough power to banish illegal immigrants and do half of the things he's promising. But even if he could, he would not anyway because it would guarantee a loss in a possible re-election as well.

    Agreed. I think Bernie Sanders is the only one who shows actual promise, however he would never get elected due to the "S" word. Nobody understands Socialism in America, and even if he got all of the support from "Young USA" he still needs the support from the "Old USA" who also has a big hand in the election. The fact of the matter is, Bernie is too "left-wing" to win it anyway. So, you've got to choose either the biggest douche in the universe or the lady who is too afraid to make a decision at all.

    I still think Jeb Bush is going to win the republican vote. Once it gets closer and closer to the actual election I think, and hope, that people will jump off the bandwagon of support that Trump has gotten thus far. Now with saying that I wouldnt vote for either of them as I'm a believer in Sanders (and yes as a 'young American') and think he should be elected.

    I just wanted to stress that there still quite a bit of time until the primary and I think trump will falter when people realize that we don't need a president like him, oh course in my opinion.

    I mean it's not like I want Trump to win. The leaders of the Republican Party are tearing their hair out over this because if Trump gets in, they have absolutely NO control over him. It's the nature of the way the elections are set up that condemn the whole system. Most people don't even realize that you can start a new party, and that you don't have to choose either Republican or Democrat.

    Oh yeah, I wasn't trying to insinuate anything about your voting preference.

    You do bring up an interesting point about the current two party system. Especially since Bernie Sanders isn't your typical democrat. I personally believe him running as an independent would be a better representation of his overall goal and ideals. There is an odd stigma against other parties running in the election. I'm not actually sure why this is the case, perhaps people are just use to the system and blindly follow it. The Whig party use to have some success in the early 1900's but I think they folded a while ago, because of the immense popularity of the two party system.

    Well, what happened was the parties that existed long ago all merged into either Democrat or Republican. The problem is, there is no clear position on what a Democrat represents and what a Republican represents. It is automatically assumed that a Democrat is liberal and a Republican is conservative, but that is just the media's blinding of the truth. If you ask people about the Democratic party, they assume that Democrats are all liberal and all support Obama, all support pro-choice, all support black lives matter, all support everything that's liberal. The truth of the matter is the Democrats have never had a set view on such things. The only thing that is clear is that Democrats have always supported the lower end of the class system, splitting the middle class in half and taking the side of the lower end of it plus the lower class. In times of slavery, Democrats supported slavery and the Confederates. This was because the South was productive, but it was not a wealthy place. Slave owners lived off of their slaves and when the Union tried to end it, it pissed them off. The Union and Abraham Lincoln, were actually Republican, and they supported the higher end of the middle class as well as the upper class. This was because the North was not much farmland and much of it was owned by the wealthy who ran factories and industry. In the days of slavery, oddly enough the Republicans were more liberal because they were concerned about a social issue such as slavery. Whereas, the Democrats were more conservative, as they were more concerned about a financial issue such as their lifestyle and livelihood. Over the years, the tables have continuously turned.

    This is the problem with the Democrats and Republicans. I am sure Bernie would love to start his own party, but the fact is he would have no chance because of the brainwashing that happens in the school system and I hate to say it, but even at home. The public is blind to the fact that there is more to an election than Democrat and Republican. They just assume it's the only way because that's what they've been taught.

    U.S is primarily democratic and vote democratic, regardless of the candidates views on foreign policy.

How can the U.S say it is a democratic country or attempt to spread democracy in the East when the people itself don't even believe or know what democracy is?

    Much of the republican party know how stupid Trump is and they would not elect him to represent the republican party. I find it shocking how popular he is amongst voters though. It's pathetic.
    Again, the only thing that is "primitive" is your lack of understanding of politics. Democracy is not a perfect system and the US is not a democracy. It is a Democratic Republic, and there is a difference. You need to take a Political Science class before you start talking like you understand the world. Conservatism does not mean no change. It means only necessary change because the system is not broken, it's just not being used correctly. Liberalism means all change, let's scrap the whole system and start over. You need a balance of the two.

    We don't try to spread Democracy anywhere, that is a load of horse shit and whoever says that is a liar or they listen to the left-wing media who try to give Bush and Obama a legitimate reason for dabbling in the Middle East. The only thing we wish to spread is territory, capitalism, and control. No, it is not about Oil, it is about strategy. Let's be honest, in a war against Russia and China where would we best launch an attack? We already have them surrounded on the East and West sides. All we need is the Middle East and Africa and we surround them relatively completely. Even in times of peace, we are at war in silence.

    I agree conservative does mean necessary change, but when will a conservative over look their problems and say, okay it is time for a change?

    When will a Liberal over look their problems and say, okay maybe we need to step back and work with what we have, maybe it is harder than it seems to make lemonade from limes.
