So which candidate is the most /fa/? And why did you say Marco Rubio?
most /fa/ candidate: John McAffee, fuccbois
/pol/ would fucking love it if he won
Trump has no chance; no woman or minority would vote for him, so he'd get completely annihilated in swing states, which, honestly, are all that really matter in the general election
Clinton will probably be the next president (especially if she chooses a runningmate like Cory Booker or Julian Castro) but she's a fucking idiot when it comes to decision making; her voting record is abhorrent
Clinton has a better chance of being imprisoned than being in the white house after the current email release senpai.
She's fucked. No real man will vote for her. Women love Trump, his wife and his daughter.
Lol you're deranged if you think Clinton didn't handle the Benghazi situation fine.
A somethingawful forums moderator died playing EVE lol... You can't be butthurt about a riot getting out of hand.
Clinton is the most electable candidate for the Dems, yes. But she's running against a literal communist. Marco Rubio is the most electable candidate overall. A Rubio/Carson Ticket would secure total victory for Repubs.
But fuck that. Trump 2016.
It's not Benghazi. It's the mistreatment of highly classified documents that would have any non-Clinton politician getting wet rags over their face in Guantanamo.
>Trump has no chance; no woman or minority would vote for him, so he'd get completely annihilated in swing states, which, honestly, are all that really matter in the general election
>Not knowing that the outcome of the 2016 election is predetermined because of a process called political gerrymandering
Carson will fall asleep at the wheel by next week, anon
Who is the communist? Bringing tax levels back to Reagan era levels isn't the same thing as media blackouts, secret police, and state-sponsored racial cleansing, if you're suggesting that Bernie is a communist
Rubio could get the nom but here's why Trump will: he refuses to have a super-PAC and literally dictates every aspect of his campaign; that alone is a huge enough step up from the rest of the field that Rubio really doesn't have a chance
>Deciding what candidate you'll vote for before seeing them all in BLR
It's like you don't want Lucas Don Velour to be our great nation's First Pigeon
Hillary will have another aneurism an die before the next debate.
>Reagan era level taxes
Where are you getting this shit? He straight up said he'd tax anyone making over 250k a year up to 90%.
God dammit I forgot about the aneurysm. Good comeback
Right wingers are so fucking afraid of tax hikes, even if it doesn't affect them
I don't know Sanders' campaign promises by memory but most republicans throw a temper tantrum when there's talk of raising taxes on any citizens, even if it's only to bring them up to Reagan era rates (kinda sad that republicans wouldn't agree to that, considering how they still glorify the gipper like he was some kind of eternal figurehead)
Sanders tax increases would effect everyone who pays them already. Monetary socialism doesn't work. And even with his proposals, nothing could be funded after a few years due to massive deficits.
Take any Econ 101 style class or read a book on the subject. Sander's monetary policy is broken.
Better than the Republican strategy: go to war with IS and put us further in debt
They kill like 5000 civilians a year. Obama was right: they are JV
Meanwhile the Syrian government kills like 80,000 people a year and trump wants to prop them up
Marco Rubio is 100% the most effay candidate.
I don't know about the 2nd one, but in the first Republican debate he was the only candidate who looked like he was worth a damn. Everybody else had a poorly fitted suit, either because they were fat or it was just shit.
I don't know if they're trying to appeal to the average man or whatever, but fucking christ, all that money in a campaign and you can't even afford a good tailor.
The thing is that he won't have much actual control over the economy with Congress locked in by the republicans. That said he could greatly influence social policies, and considering he's the only candidate who isn't racist and/or sexist (including Shillary) other than O'Malley (not a real candidate), you should be voting for him unless you're a supreme memer
...is there another reason I should vote for people, other than economic policy, which I already covered? You know the president has an effect on our laws and social policies, right?
Not my fault all the candidates are so shitty in this election.
Agreed entirely. In terms only of suit fit and overall appearance, Rubio has been the most consistently dressed of any of the candidates. I suspect that just means that he has a good tailor and/or his wife is making sure he doesn't roll around in dumb shit. I hope one day my wife would do the same.
Rubio should lose his award for best dressed candidates because of shit like this. God, it just looks awful across the board.
All you need to know about Trump's first wife's decoration strategy is that she was from the Eastern Bloc. That explains why pretty much everything is gold and marble and shit.
Accurate, but keep in mind that most Republicans hate the idea of tax hikes because they think the government should cut back its scope well before raising tax rates. They just aren't that nuanced when screaming at the top of their lungs.
>Clinton is the most electable candidate for the Dems, yes.
Agreed. I literally get hard thinking of how much baggage she has that's gonna come out during the general election. It's gonna be fun as FUCK
>Carson will fall asleep at the wheel by next week, anon
When he quits I'm gonna hold a party. My ex was a med student at Johns Hopkins who believed she was ~the shit~ and all other people should defer to her on virtually any topic, including politics. Carson getting bodied in the polls just reinforces the incorrectness of her view. And I'm a lonely/petty asshole who drinks a lot anyway.
Don't even remind me; I'm actually thinking of moving to Mexico. It's close by so I'd have a good chance of finding a sweet apartment, and at least I already know it's a shithole....don't have to watch the place fall apart like America will
Just kidding; the presidency is such a weak position that Trump wouldn't actually be able to get away with a lot of what he's talking about without getting impeached. We'd be alright but it'd be pretty lame to go back to war.
>I'm a lonely/petty asshole who drinks a lot anyway
So you're ready with all of your burns and putdowns for when you do get a chance to call her out? Nice.
I'm an RN and a lot of my patients read books by political candidates; the crazies are gonna get called out one after the next as soon as the GOP nominee is decided. I'm pretty excited about it, actually.
I love mock turtlenecks. He's also the most attractive.
No, she actually would be more warhawkish and conniving than trump.
People have such short memories... This woman does not mean what she says and she is an unabashed warhawk.
She is dick cheney beneath all the populist rhetoric.
Bernie wants to raise minimum wage to $15/hr and that's beyond fucked up. how he can't understand that that would completely fuck the economy in the ass? people would also become career burger flippers and not attempt to change jobs ever. Prices of goods would go up so companies can sustain being forced to pay workers 15/hr and there'd be major job cuts. It's disgusting.
explain yourself, fa/m
The way I see it, if a supermarket or coffeeshop or restaurant advertised that they were raising wages to 15/hr minimum, and that they had to raise prices as a result, I'd spend money in those places exclusively. I never struggled to make ends meet but it's bullshit that people some of my coworkers have to work two fulltime jobs just to keep themselves afloat....nobody should be in that position, ever
A few years ago UPS had a workers' strike and a lot of places went under; to think that a business is so fragile that mandatory wage increase, a missed UPS delivery, or even a slow weekend is enough for a place to close its doors is a sign that there's more to a businesses' collapse than just wages. Usually it was destined for failure and that $6 pay bump is just the nail on the coffin
Not that Anon.
But min wage should be abolished completely. If you set a standard then employers are morally exempt in paying that, and no more. On the flip side, if you're dumb enough to work for peanuts and not negotiate a higher wage through self advocacy then that's all you deserve.
To follow up the guy: to set a minimum wage to help the poor (especially if you don't treat the underlying conditions such as wage depression/stagnation, out-sourcing to foreign labor, and inaccessibility to "good jobs"), will only wind up to massive job loss, job automation, and increased inaccessibility to work because (the poor) can't convince an employer they're worth $15/hr.
The minimum wage should be abolished. We could also consider asking employers to post the average starting wage for each of their entry level positions, so that prospective employees could have a negotiation springboard. In addition to that, we need to reevaluate guest worker programs; punish those who have been abusing the system, using dishonest/abusive practices to keep Americans from those jobs, and/or forcing Americans to train their less-skilled foreign replacements (and should also ensure that foreign university workers/researchers be counted under the existing guest worker cap; they don't). Beyond that we should deregulate; lower corporate income taxes (but close all of the loophole possible by simplifying the tax code), reduce the emphasis that "going to college means a better life/job" and emphasis opportunities in trades, manufacturing, etc. in education, and think about how we can solve the whole "CEO earning 200x the wage of their average worker" while the average income in America has stagnated and/or gone down.
Do all of that, and the American economy should explode.
talk shit post fit
