Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

How many people here aren't either immigrants or descended from immigrants in the past 3 generations?
IINM they had pretty tough rules back then. You couldn't just steal in and get everything handed to you on a silver platter.
Remember, we have a process to legalize immigrants

All he had to do was NOT lose my vote.

But he did. Over and over. And I came to a point where I had to say "ad kan."

Very well put.
See, the funny thing about legalizing all those millions of illegals is that you assume that they are liberals. They're not.

I'm curious if this is simply an open question, or if there is a point you are getting to...

Of course there's a point I'm getting at, which has to do with the seeming animosity of some of those in the frum community towards immigrants.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Towards IMMIGRANTS or towards ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS?

Yeah, it was tough - people didn't want those smelly Jews escaping death in Europe to dirty American towns. They wanted, how do you say it again? Oh, that's right. They wanted to put "America First."

A few million practicing Catholics will change the political landscape, but not the way most think it will.
Isn't Kaine a Catholic?


I think your have some misconceptions about Catholics. I don't think they view their relationship with their religion like we view ours. Would you agree to drive your car on Shabbos just one time for $1,000,000,000? Would a Catholic do anything which is against his or her religion, just one time for $1,000,000,000 (or a lot less)?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Yesterday, Trump had a three-point lead, but the candidates were dead even for the two days before that.[/font][/size]
[/size]
Eighty-six percent (86%) of voters say they are now certain how they will vote, and among these voters, Trump - for the second day in a row leads 53% to 43%, with Johnson at three percent (2%) and Stein with two percent (2%). Among voters who still could change their minds, its Clinton 41%, Trump 30%, Johnson 25% and Stein four percent (4%).

Does that mean that Hillary earned my vote? Not really. But DJT not only "earned" that I should not vote for him but that I should actively vote to stop him, which practically speaking means a vote for HRC. (Add to that the fact that I live in a swing state, the responsibility is even more clear.)


Thank you for your honesty and laying out your position so clearly.

Something for non-swing vote voters to think about; (distilled from things I read and my own thoughts)

I was never going to vote for Trump or Hillary, but that decision was made easy by the fact that I live in New York where my vote for president does not make any difference.

There are two reasons to vote.

1 - is to help ensure that the policies that you favor are enacted. In a non-swing state like New York this reason does not apply to presidential elections. I will leave this discussion to others.

2- Your vote is a statement that this is a person and set of ideas that I accept (even if I don't endorsept 100%) and therefore want to associate with. I have always voted Republican for this reason.

This year I am writing in Evan McMullin, because he is a person that (I may not agree with on everything but) am happy to be associated with.
