Whether or not he ultimately shows a little class you can bet by the time the Clinton victory party is over he will be lighting up Twitter and setting the prelude for his next enterprise.

You lefties really don't understand at all why trump was nominated if you think Ryan ever has a chance at being nominated by Republicans.

Ryan's only chance would be as a Democrat.

There ya go with those phantasmagorical "lefties" again. Nonexistent as far as I can determine - they became centrists, continually pushed to the Right since Nixon. But it does make for a convenient straw man talking point - a lot of people actually believe that these "lefties" exist.

Corruption and the allowance of the elites to position themselves above the law is the descent to 3rd world. I'm 100% confident that as the liberals ignore the laws to achieve their aims, they will attempt to kill off the 120 million Basket of Deplorables.

I just wanted to wish everyone good luck, no matter who you support. Though the discussions often get very heated, and we have radically different notions of what is best for the country, I commend all of you for your passion for politics and the future of this country. There are countless intelligent and welll-informed posters on both sides, which makes this forum great. Do you ever ask yourself how the hell you ended up on City-Data POC board? I mean, City-Data!

If Trump wins, I sure hope that:

1. Clinton would concede gratuitously without claiming that our election system is rigged and that election results should not be accepted;

2. The Democrats in the Senate would not refuse to schedule a hearing for Trump's SCOTUS appointment (or filibuster if they don't obtain a majority) until the end of times;

See you guys tomorrow night! May the best person win.

Mick
When it's over, I'll raise a glass or Scotch (or 3) to ya, Mick. Nice post.

I really hope neither of them run for re-election and that we have a better selection in well, about 3 years when this whole vicious cycle starts again.

This election season I have been grateful for so many of you all here on CD. You all are sooo much better than the MSM. Everyone has given different sides and points of view, in turn has caused more research on my part also. Thank you all for that.

Awesome post Mick. I agree ~ may the best person win. I've enjoyed debating the pros/cons here on CD

People before Politics from now on.

Let the people decide tomorrow.

Whomever gets to win, let us all agree to hold them to it.

Just I cannot agree more with this post. I just hope we can do it. Social media has divided us more than united us.

Sure, new jobs would be created to service self-driving cars, but there will be one job created for every 10 lost. That's what I am concerned about . . . . never mind the self-thinking AI robots that want to kill us!

Mick
I just saw Steve Schmidt discussing that ~ and the fact that automated drive-throughs are about 18 months away. More and more, jobs will be lost to automation; even those that require degrees.


We are going to have to work together to figure this out.
