the US elections and debates

Just got off a detailing forum which I like. It's mostly full of Americans - no problem, I hope that doesn't sound perjorative. But, whenever I join the politics / elections threads ... man my blood boils.

The myopic, jingoistic nature of their chat is frightening. I was abused for suggesting to one guy, who wants his taxes for Obamacare back, that he should be more concerned about his taxes being spent on weapons and warfare.

I got roundly laughed out of the forum for my stupid lefty ideals.

And breathe

Americans..........?

They want to carry guns but can't understand mass shootings in schools and universities and a fair proportion of them want to see Trump in the Whitehouse........


I'll never understand them.

They're more extreme than the extremest they complain about.

Perhaps the most powerful country will always contain a higher proportion of proud people who are confident they are right, and won't listen to evidence, reasoning, etc. Maybe Great Britain was the same in the days of Empire.

Ted Cruz. Just what they need. A religious zealot in charge.

I was happy to see The Fart lose but Cruz is just as scary.

How on earth can the parties stack themselves with so many zealots that the majority "reasonables" cannot out vote them.

Americans are still hungry about presidential exotique.
Next one would definitely come from latins. Either Marco Rubio or Theodoro Cruz.

Love the country, but some of the people are loud, obnoxious, opinionated, and are always quick to remind you they saved the world, on more than one occasion.

Bush 2 was a frigging idiot, imagine Fart in charge!

Yeah but it's the right religion. The difference between him and fundamentalists of other faiths is he will have a nuclear arsenal to carry out gods will with should he become president.

Fact checking website in the US highlights that Cruz is a liar.

Isn't that against one of the Commandments?

All Pants on Fire! statements involving Ted Cruz | PolitiFact Texas


"You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man" (Psalm 5:6).

Pretty clear cut what needs to be done than....
