    Default Which Extreme Would You Prefer - President Trump Or President Sanders?

    If it came down to the two extremes on either side - which would you have to vote for - either in terms of support or to stop the other guy?

    Sanders
    Trump

    Where does your checkmark go and why?

    Canadians can play too, so Sanders for me - because I am already used to socialism.

    Or course, Trump.

    I'm sick of illegal immigration and China and I simply do not care about his "gaffs" and all the other bullshit that is levied against him from the establishment.

    I'm not afraid of a Trump presidency nor do I give a shit what the rest of the world thinks of him. The man has been a success for the majority of his career.

    I wouldn't vote for Trump no matter who he was running against.

    Sanders, and hope for a Republican Congress, pray nothing gets accomplished, and we get someone else in four years.

    Pretty much this. Even at worst, I don't think he could get Congress to go along with raising taxes high enough to offer free college tuition.

    Sanders and gridlock for me too.

    Sanders on foreign policy would be disastrous. Putin would run all over him. Trump would be horrible. Putin would outsmart him. And Trump would involve us in even more wars.

    I don't have an answer.

    Bernie.

    Trump would put us in a war with Iran...if you think Free College is expensive...this war would cost 7 times as much. It would completely break our country, not to mention kill 12 to 15 thousand of our children. The wall would cost almost a TRILLION to build and maintain. I'd rather send my kid to college than Iran.

    Trump would do what's right, and make the country more like a Republic.

    Sanders, otoh, would make America more like a Democracy.

    Here's some Quotes:

    Just after the completion and signing of the Constitution, in reply to a woman's inquiry as to the type of government the Founders had created, Benjamin Franklin said, "A Republic, if you can keep it."

    "Hence it is that democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and in general have been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths... A republic, by which I mean a government in which a scheme of representation takes place, opens a different prospect and promises the cure for which we are seeking."J ames Madison, Federalist Papers No. 10 (1787).

    "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!" Ben Franklin

    “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” Thomas Jefferson

    “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” John Adams

    ~~8 U.S.C. § 1182(f)~~

    The Trump myth - that he has been a success all is career - is patently false. He inherited his wealth and has squandered much of it on bad deals. He would be disasterous as CIC.

    Again - and this is my last comment because it's just fucking futile - Sanders' proposal isn't to raise taxes through the roof to mandate handouts. He wants to redistribute where our taxes are going to pay for his proposals. Do we want war or healthcare? Bank bailouts or free college? It's ALL socialism in some form or another, it's just a matter of your priorities and what we prefer our taxes to be spent on.

    He still the best candidate by far. However "extreme" you want to paint that.

    I'd love to see a showdown between Trump & Sanders.

    Hilary & Cruz, both, make my skin crawl.

    Great post.

    I don't know why this doesn't make sense to some people:

    Ugh...like picking a favorite finger....to chop off.

    I guess Trump because Sanders will push for a carbon tax to raise my already high electrical bill every month. Tough enough to pay it already.

    320 million people in the USA and these are the only people who want to run for Prez? WTF?

    If all he wants to do is redistribute current revenue, why is it reported that there will be income tax hikes?
