There comes a time where the members of two political dynasties announce that they are running for the highest office in the land, and you get to chose between , well, southpark states it best : a giant douche and a turd sandwich, so go and vote for your monarch!

Imo we need someone with experience running a business. Our current president has no clue how to make negotiations. We also need our liberties restored. The best two for those are Rand Paul and Donald Trump.

He may be an egotistical maniac, but thats exactly what we need. Donald Trump will not take no for an answer against other countries.

He isn't speaking necessarily about 'making a profit', but, rather, someone who has actual experience with managing large-scale infrastructures. Our current candidates mostly include noobs with law degrees and large mouths; give me someone who actually knows how to deal with numbers, logistics, management etc and you get a damn good President.

Our infrastructure is like a 3rd world country. Our education is like a 3rd world country. Our REAL unemployment rate is like 15-20%. We are 18 trillion dollars in debt. Mexico is destroying us economically. China is destroying us economically. Japan is destroying us economically. It took Jeb Bush 5 days to answer the question "Is Iraq a good thing or a bad thing". He doesn't know. Marco Rubio doesn't either. How are these bozos supposed to lead us? China can just devalue their currency and get away with it. Saudi Arabia can just devalue oil prices and get away with it. We need to stick up to these other countries. Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush cannot negotiate with these countries. Our leaders vs Their Leaders is like Barcelona FC vs My Travel Soccer Team.

You think Hillary knows? She fucked up enough with Benghazi. WE need to spend less money on fluff. WE NEED someone with the Tenacity and foreign policy strength of Reagan with the Economic policy of George Bush I. This country is also fast heading for some sort of racial explosion, and I don't know what could be done to stop such a thing. The nation needs to take a lesson from Charleston, Blacks and Whites came together, there is no rioting, looting, or angry mob type protests, instead all came together to stand up against racism and hate. We need better police policy, on a national scale, so standards are set. We need to crack down on gangs, and other activities, poor, young minorities and whites are apt to get Into. We need a solid policy to end illegal migration to the US from Latin America. We need to restore our strength and stand up to the Russian Threat in Eastern Europe. We need to tell Iran how its going to be, not let them dictate terms. We need to go in an wipe ISIS from the Earth. no fucking rules of war, it needs to be done WWII style. Go in and kill every single one of them, if a bomb hits a civilian target then oh well, such is war, terror groups and Caliphates as ISIS is, they use the fact we don't bomb houses ot their advantage. No, flatten it all then send in the Marines and Army. Prove we are still strong and let Iraq finally break into the States it should have after WWI Kurdistan needs i independence, and the south needs to be partitioned into 2 nations, one of Sunni, one of Shia. We are all in for a reckoning if America cant get a handle on itself soon. Texas, Alaska, Hawaii, California, South&North Carolina, have all put petitions in to secede. And Texas and California are allowed to do so by their own constitution.

I never understood why people make this huge fit about "Dynasties" whenever someone with a familiar last name runs. There's no law that says having a relative in politics forbids you from holding an office. It doesn't matter what someone's last name is, it matters if they can do the job.

America needs to stop treating elections like popularity contests. It doesn't matter if you like a certain candidate, you should vote for whoever is the most capable.

trump is also a greedy narcissist. he doesn't care about what happens to our country, all he cares about is fattening his wallet. kissing up to china and saudi arabia is personally the most profitable for him, and you can bet that's what he will do.

and if he is as prideful and stupid as he seems he will also entangle us in more pointless wars

I suggest Donald Trump because he is the best man for the descriptions you gave. According to The Economist (Who I don't really trust but whatever) 24 Trillion dollars in debt is the no return zone. Gangs aren't really the problem, its the lack of jobs that creates gangs.

trump is also a greedy narcissist. he doesn't care about what happens to our country, all he cares about is fattening his wallet. kissing up to china and saudi arabia is personally the most profitable for him, and you can bet that's what he will do.

I don't know if this is accurate, but he claims to donate money to charity. Hillary Clinton recieves money from Saudi Arabia (a country that oppresses women) and uses it to campaign for women's rights. That's pretty damn greedy if you ask me.

Trump is not perfect, he is a lot better than Clinton, Bush or Rubio.

corruption is the number one problem in our country. corporations dictate our foreign and domestic decisions. we need a president who will fight corruption, and anyone taking campaign contributions (bribes) from corporations is not going to do that.

Here's the problem though, nearly every candidate is either funded by rich corporations or rich hollywood celebrities. There's rarely to never any candidates who aren't tied to someone's interests via campaign funds.

Pax Romana ended roughly 180 A.D. after the death of Marcus Aurelius. The Roman Empire was plagued by bad Emperors (Nero, Caligula) before the Empire internally weakened and slowly retreated and collapsed as hordes of barbarians rushed over Germania into Italia,

Ladies and gentlemen, arguably American power has slowly but surely strained and weakened ever since Vietnam. The reign of Richard Nixon destroyed the public's opinion of the president. Now we are weary of our leaders and have no trust in them. For good reason. Nixon and Bush mirror Caligula and Nero. My friends, Pax Americana is winding down. And in the future there will no doubt be good presidents (the Justinians and Constantines) but if we do not make right now, we are doomed.

CNN, Fox and the Media are corrupting the public. Pushing race against race and party against party. China will soon overpower us and people around the world will soon realize that The United States of America has no right to dictate other's futures.

My friends. Democrats and Republicans, Liberals and Conservatives, Christians and Atheists. We must unite, work together, Competition is good but as Abraham Lincoln, our greatest leader once said.

"A house divided against itself, cannot stand."

Fellow Americans. Nothing good lasts forever, but that doesn't mean it can't last a little longer.

i voted twice for ralph nader (yep, i put bush in office). if he took any money from corporations they had to be the stupidest corporations ever.

plenty of 3rd party candidates don't get money from corporations. maybe they aren't viable, but that's only because voters are stupid.

if trump only uses his own money (which i doubt) his money will still come from a corporation.

Kellen, I'd argue Reagan, Eisenhower or FDR were more formidable presidents.

We've had many strings of bad presidents, but the problem rests in Congress, not the presidency.

A more minor but still there issue is presidential campaigns. They're just stupid. They absorb loads of cash. Look at France. They look good in that department.

I'm literally not joking. Check this out:

Although I believe this is referring to the TV network rather than cnn.com, i'm not really sure how they're different.

I cannot vouch for CNN's TV coverage, as I have not watched a single news source on TV since.... about fifteen years ago. But cnn.com and Google News have not disputed each others' information on any article that I have read, to my knowledge. Perhaps that just means I'm only reading the articles that both of them cover, so it is possible that cnn.com's other articles are less reliable; perhaps cnn.com has lied about information and I have not caught it while reading; or perhaps both cnn.com and Google News are both lying about the same information. Whatever the case may be, I have not had a reason to distrust cnn.com as a source of news, but I will take into account your words.
