The really crazy ones do, but the majority of Americans don't
8 ups, 6y,
scary but fascinating!! i don't know anything about the internal politics, Obamacare and that sort of stuff is never going to affect me, my only interest is foreign affairs and like the majority of outsiders I just want to see a president that puts an end to all the "regime changes".
My natural political leaning is to the left but for the last couple of US elections I've sided with the republicans. I think Ron Paul would've put a stop to the wars and i think Trump will do the same. Clinton will start a new cold war with Russia....and that's probably the best we can hope for!
I've said it before and i'll say it again, i think Trump will run america "like" a corporation, Clinton will run it "for" the corporations. Trump could turn out to be the best president the US has had for a long, long time. Did you hear his "anti-establishment" speech the other day? powerful stuff...sounded like it came straight from V for Vendetta!
It's messed up at times, but it really is something to see. I don't know how Trump will truly run the country because of how messed up it is, but I know what to expect with the Clintons. If Trump treats the country like a company, we may start to turn things around, but Hillary will just drag us down into more debt, more war, more government corruption, and more instances where Bill can't keep it in his pants.
Simply going off the top of my head here, cause I was only in my teens when Bill was in office, but didn't he run the deficit down? Isn't 43 the one who had it skyrocket because of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq?
The economic boom in the 90's happened mostly because of the dotcom bubble, repealing Glass-Steagall which let Wall Street run rampant, and all across the board cuts. https://www.thenation.com/article/note-to-hillary-clintonomics-was-a-disaster-for-most-americans/
You'd likely get in a flame war before me and we know how relaxed you are. :) Anyway, I wasn't trying to do anything nefarious but have a debate, but then he started acting bent, then weird. I'll confess I poked a couple times but he never said anything about me going away until the final message. Indeed he was the one acting arrogant. I just want people to back up their arguments with facts, Johnny, not just shout a few times and then expect the others to accept it.
And I would never consider myself higher status. I was just trying to have a conversation, even though I knew I shouldn't have with him. What I meant is that the dude is notorious for being obnoxious (i.e., the infamous Islam screed meme). He's 19? That does explain a lot. And no, I'm not being mean.
Not pissed, not trolling, not doing anything but imgflipping. I left him all opportunities to drop everything but every time I click on my notifications he's there with some weird obscenity or whatever. I've dropped it now. He's being a hypocrite. Imgflip memes exist to be commented on; and what does it matter if I continue to comment on his meme. When it's public it rather stops being a personal possession - when he's commented on my memes I've never told him to f**k off. And he can criticize my political choices but I have to stop criticizing his at some point? Johnny, dude, you DO know who you're dealing with there don't you?

A 19 year old man? I really don't consider anyone higher status. If your commenting is just there to voice your opinion repeatedly to the same guy, then it isn't necessary. However, it is good that you dropped it. I just can't imagine you in a flame war, and I saw one brewing very quickly.
Not all accounts supporting Hillarly are paid troll accounts. Some people like her, simple as that. And if he is indeed trying to troll you, which I highly doubt, then stop commenting on him. Simple. Grapes.
