I respect your choice, since it's every voter's right to pick a candidate that he or she feels is that most qualified. However, when did Donald Trump talk about issues? You mean the time he said he loved war? Or maybe when he tweeted that everyone should check out a sex tape!

In any case, I do agree that I would never vote for a woman based on gender. I just wouldn't pick Donald Trump because I care about my race. (the human one)

Yes,I was willing to cross party lines to support a woman.

Maybe except Palin,but her abortion stance was unscceptable.

I can assure you I seek no approval from any man, or woman, other than my beloved husband and even the validity of his approval is conditional.
I have trashed no one here personally any more than every Trump supporter trashes Clinton supporters personally. If you choose to take my comments personally, that is on you. I'm simply saying women should not apologize for supporting a woman who is running for president. Men would never apologize, not for a single second.

You know what every Trump supporter does and says in regard to Clinton supporters?

Simply amazing.

Peter Thiel has not been honest about his war on Gawker. It was not just about the Hogan case. Thiel shut down Gawker by funding multiple lawsuits, it's just that the Hogan one did the job. I thought his interview was very selective in how he tried to present himself as the Hogan's savior without mentioning the other lawsuits or never having admitted he was the one funding it all until he was exposed. Almost no one in tech supports Trump with the exception of Thiel.

What is interesting is Thiel and Trump share a similar goal of shutting down media that does not agree with them. Trump supporters have no problem with that but if it were to happen to them, if we were to make Fox News illegal or sue them into oblivion, Trump supporters would have a very very very different opinion.

You applied my general comments about Trump supporters personally. That is a choice you make.

Hillary is qualified to run a day care centre. Of course the issues don't matter. Vote for Hillary because she's a woman and ..... ?

As for Gaddafi, Trump was willing to host Gaddafi on his property. The man responsible for the Lockerbie bombing!!! The man was responsible for hundreds (or more) deaths, rapes, murders and now the GOP loves him? Don't tell Reagan that, he detested Gaddafi.

This attribution of every single thing that has taken place in the Middle East is as ridiculous as the people that somehow forgot that President Obama was not in office when 9/11 happened. They just sheepishly go along and believe it because someone else said it. That kind of passive, weak ability to be manipulated is why women are never in the White House.
WT?
Not blaming Bush again.
Also, lets not forget Hillary voted for the war also. So don't only blame Bush without also blaming Hillary.

Look, I think Bush/Cheney made a huge mistake taking out Saddam. Just like with the examples I gave that you quoted, these ME dictators were not great people (though Mubarak was not that bad). To show you I am not some partisan hack, I will show you know how I know this. Listen to Cheney's own words from when he was the elder Bush's SoD;


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BEsZMvrq-I

So yes Bush/Cheney made a huge mistake.

HOWEVER, this thread is not about them, it is about how the OP will vote for anyone just because of their gender, including even someone as bad as Hillary.


So if Hillary had learned from her & Bush's mistake, she should have put her foot down and said no, we are not going to screw up like Bush & I did with Iraq.
Instead she pushed for the same thing with other leaders I mentioned, and the ensuing horrible results.

You mention Gaddafi, but fail to realize he was effectively neutered. Sure he and his sons were murderous thugs, just like Saddam & his sons. Yet he kept the Islamic terrorists under control and gave up his WMD ambitions. There was no compelling reason to take him out then, yet Hillary wanted to be a war hawk, probably to bolster her image when she ran for president again.

Lastly, the things I mentioned and examples given were all under Hillary's and Obama's watch, not Bush. So don't try to deflect from her hawkish tendencies. Bernie knew it and called her out for it. Like or dislike Trump, he is much more of an isolationist when it comes to foreign affairs, and less likely to involve us in the mayhem Hillary was responsible for getting us into.

What do you think?

I think the next woman President should be Miss May.

You know what? Nobody cares anymore.

I think Trump has such an inferiority complex, such thin skin, that he is the one that would get us into wars. I think Trump has no concept of people living and dying in defense of their country, he just worries about what people think of him. I think he has a terrible temperament and I think the Republican Party agrees. If you read the NY Times article on him yesterday, the man sounds positively unhinged.
