>>24046550 How is the POTUS most powerful? Any large and influential changes would be opposed and either denied or modified to suit the average views of the average politician, which is why every president feels like a useless fool who can't do anything. POTUS power is a meme, they're just the government celebrity. For them to have real power the US would be a dictatorship
Look at how Obama's done with Congress post 2010 elections. If Hillary wins, it's gonna be more of the same. Gridlock, nothing getting done because any compromise is taboo to the Tea Party, and generally just a lot of threats to shutdown the government as long as the Republicans aren't getting everything they demand.
Benghazi, email, theft, giving classified info to terrorists, backdoor dealings, destruction of evidence, obstruction of justice, the list goes on. She's lucky if she serves less than 10 years prison. Prez? Not a fucking chance. It's either Sanders or Biden. Those are the only viable Democrat candidates. Republicans have Trump who is made of fucking Teflon or some shit like that, then there's oh look a black guy race card Carson. He's a good guy but Republic are trying to use him to get the lib vote instead of focusing on people who will actually vote for them. I don't really care who gets it as long as it's not the female cunt bitch or the male cunt bitch. I'm sick of kekservatives. If that's what Republican is then I'm jumping ship to constitutional or lolbertardian.
You do realize they've investigated that thing literally longer than Watergate and STILL haven't come up with anything implicating or incriminating her? It's literally become "grasping at straws, the meme version" shorthand.
>>24046633 You know she already has about as much power as the president She has so many fucking connections, she's been in the capital far longer and has way more experience than Obama. Obama was barely a senator for any time at all.
>>24046860 >I seriously hope that the majority of the voting population of the United States does not do this. >you would rather have that snake than trump as much as i hate trump, literally anything is better than that fucking bitch
Not a lot, honestly. The pundits are waiting for Trump and Carson to fail, as they must, and for their followers to settle on a new target that's acceptable to the kingmakers.
There are primaries and such, but winning primaries doesn't necessarily equal fundraising or delegate pledging. The electoral college is really the thing that has to be controlled, and non-politicians like Carson and Trump have a near-zero chance of getting to that point.
They'll have fun at the first couple of primaries, but I expect by next April or May that there will be a consensus around Rubio or Kasich. Maybe Jeb, assuming Dick Cheney sells another soul to the devil on behalf of the Bushes.
Citizens don't matter. Money does. Trump can pour out his personal fortune all he likes, but he won't buy out guys like Adelson, Murdoch, or the Kochs.
>>24047883 >It's going to be more than 11.2% nowadays, which isn't insignificant considering that it's posed to grow to more than 30% in less than 20 years. It wasn't even 8% in 2012. Your entire post reads like it came from tumblr.
Well, Citizen's United has made is something of a clusterfuck. Used to be the money had to go through the main party organization to be handed out to chosen candidates, but now anyone can give anyone else money through a large collection of shell companies, which has allowed otherwise non-sensical campaigns like Fiorina or Carson to succeed in spite of having zero support from the people who actually know politics. The Tea Party, initially utilized to fleece the rubes of their money, has actually garnered real power to stifle day-to-day operations that has only succeeded in damaging the Republican brand. They've created a monster that's realized they never really cared about getting rid of abortion or stopping illegal immigration, and they're angry about it.
Wikipedia has it at 11.2 percent of adult citizens in 2012, which means it's a fair deal higher years later, in all likelihood. But by all means, pretend it's meaningless because you don't agree with it. If the Republicans don't win the next presidential election (and it's incredibly unlikely at this point barring a sudden death or assassination), they're likely dead as a major political party at the federal level. They'll continue to control state houses in the South and Midwest, but they'll never get the presidency again without completely overhauling their platform.
>>24046550 >most powerful person on earth >most powerful person implying the usa president (which isnt even the most powerful person in the usa) is the most powerful person on earth KEK, the autism level is high with this one.
I dont even know anyone whos going to vote for the tard
I googled "percent of hispanic voters" and got that number. Do you have any actual evidence that it's incorrect, or do you want to quibble about sourcing? If anything, going by Republican rationale about us being invaded by foreigners, it's probably a lowball number.
>>24048024 It was 8%. http://www.census.gov/prod/2013pubs/p20-568.pdf Romney lost because of the abysmal white voter turnout rate, the lowest its ever been. If Romney had the same white voter turnout rate as McCain did, he would have won. He lost it by pandering to Hispanics. Note that if Romney got 0% non-white vote total but just 3% more white vote, his overall votes would have gone up.
Pandering to the non-white is suicide for republicans.
Technically, candidates cannot 'coordinate' with Super-PACs, in that they cannot directly communicate with them. Except that they're free to talk to reporters about what they wish Super PACs would do, making it a totally pointless rule.
Even the FEC has all but said they're not even bothering to look for rule-breaking anymore because it's absolutely rampant.
Money = speech has been a tremendous triumph for those who have lots of money and not those who have lots of speech.
>>24047883 >Republicans are a dying party of scared, stupid white people who keep thinking that voting to give the rich more money is going to benefit them through trickle-down voodoo economics. >REPUBLICANS ARE THE DUMB WHITE PEOPLE PARTY! >59% of whites voted republican >96% of blacks voted democrat
I'm so fucking tired of this double standard. Can we call the democrat party the 'minority gibs me dat' party?
I would have to imagine a big chunk of that is owed to the Republican party's strategy of embracing white supremacists and the disaffected Dixiecrats during the 1960s. Yeah, that's still in living memory for lots of people.
The Republicans love to point out that they're the party of Lincoln, and that the Democrats were the party of segregationists and racists. They're less fond of pointing out they absolutely pandered to them from 1968 onwards in order to turn the south solidly Republican.
But please, keep pretending like it's all about getting the free ride. God knows the Republicans never do that, unless it's for arms manufacturers or people who inherit mass wealth.
>>24047883 >Republicans are a dying party of scared, stupid white people who keep thinking that voting to give the rich more money is going to benefit them through trickle-down voodoo economics. >Republican party has 2 hispanic candidates, a black neurosurgeon, and an Indian candidate >hispanic and black candidate are polling third and second respectively >Democrat party has two old white career politicians such diversity
>>24048227 He has zero chance of winning. He lost to the 'not sure' option on every poll except for the extremely white states. He regularly polls below the 'don't know' option. He has absolutely zero minority appeal in a party that will be >50% minority voters in 2016.
He's the senator of a state that has less than 1/5th the people of my tiny ass city and it's 94% white. The only reason he barely won new hampshire is because it's so similar in demographics to vermont.
Only actual idiots think sanders has a chance of actually beating Hillary.
>>24048084 >Demographics don't lie. Either they learn to accept minorities or they stop being a party with national influence by the 2020s.
Everything lies if you twist it hard enough.
Fun fact, did you know the census includes non-citizens? The actual US racial demographics is nearly 78% non-hispanic white. The hispanic birthrate has also dropped like a rock since 1985, and our net migration with Mexico has been negative since 2010. At the current rate, non-hispanic whites are the growing demographic.
>>24048496 >At least we have seen the beginnings of a grassroots-style force in the information age, Ron Paul was far, far more popular than Sanders is. He was winning basically every straw poll, they had him pulled from ballots on technicalities because they were afraid of romney losing to him.
>>24048714 >>24048666 it goes much deeper than that caucus votes in every precinct that romney lost went missing http://caucuses.desmoinesregister.com/2012/01/19/register-exclusive-2012-gop-caucus-count-unresolved/ Minnesota state RNC party instructed not to vote for delegates under 50 due to the extreme paul support among younger people https://dougwead.wordpress.com/tag/john-tate/ Romney declared winner in Maine by less than 200 votes over Paul - only problem is, they stopped counting at 84% of the total votes cast and never finished. https://youtu.be/JxYXVaUWSiA Arizona had widespread threats of violence against Ron Paul voters http://www.examiner.com/article/corrupt-arizona-gop-takes-delegate-victory-from-paul Wyoming delegates cast illegal votes for Romney, caught on tape https://youtu.be/SdDZ5L7mnfc Massachusetts had republican delegates sign a waver stating " I certify under the pain and penalty of perjury, that on the first ballot at the 2012 Republican National Convention, I will affirmatively Vote for Mitt Romney, the winner of the 2012 Massachusetts Presidential Primary" - Romney still lost. North Dakota vote was flat out fraud, Ron Paul won it - https://youtu.be/zD6_7mdcWSA Paul's first caucus win was taken down off their website and replaced with text saying Romney won - http://ivn.us/2012/03/13/media-misleads-as-ron-paul-gets-his-first-win-in-virgin-islands/
this isn't even the beginning of how badly Paul got screwed over. Romney admitted to it in his documentary(http://www.whiteoutpress.com/articles/2014/q1/romney-admits-gop-stole-2012-nomination-for-him/ ), this isn't some /pol/-tier tinfoil conspiracy.
How will we have any problems with nuclear meltdown? Even eastern yuro reactors are retrofitted so this isn't a concern. Worst case scenario we get a lot of heavy water that is contained. Even then it's only tritium that can hurt you. It would take days of only drinking deuterium flavored water to actually fuck up metabolic processes and hydrogen bonding shit enough to cause death.
Free capitalism is too risky and unstable. You only find real success by controlling government and having them divide the world into mutually effective monopolistic systems. Subsidies and special-interest laws and tax breaks are how the world works, because the man in charge don't care unless their dinero gets threatened.
>>24047056 The president has veto powers. Congress as a whole can reject the legislations he makes but individually he's more powerful than any of them. He can use it to negotiate with Congress, shut them down if they don't comply.
Number of eligible voters who are hispanic is extremely high in the minor swing state of New Mexico. Their number is moderately high in the somewhat less minor swing state of Colorado. The real kicker is their sizable presence in the most important swing state: Florida.
Do people think the democrats are really going to win a third term? Not only is that in itself uncommon, but Hillary's not seen as trust worthy and Bernie Sanders may be a bit too leftist even for the left. The GOP has lots of candidates to choose from, one of them being a well liked celebrity and the other being a neurosurgeon, so people who would have never voted republican before may consider switching because the GOP establishment candidates probably aren't going to win. Let's not forget even Bernie Sanders keeps bringing up Hillary's E-Mail scandal, so the DNC is already tearing itself apart, while the GOP has started to work together.
