Qwerty & stock traders - I hope your aware that recently Hillary proposes to increase the capital gains tax rate.

As a senator, Hillary voted against capital gains and dividend cuts, which was a tax relief package.

I admire your guts starting this thread. With every previous election year, I've tried to steer clear of discussing politics in order to keep T.I. my one little "Happy Place" on the web. But since that strategy is turning out OH SO WELL there's nothing to lose.

With that said, I've been following Allen West for a little while and so far, I like what I see. Especially his speech in Times Square yesterday. He has not announced he's running. But he made a blog post yesterday which sounded like a big ol' "maybe". I'd like to see him give it a go.

I've got a bet with friend, have $100 on Hillary, he has the rest of the field. Just took him for $100 on Warriors vs. Cavs.

If it goes like it's going, will probably be another Dem... and although I would like to see a woman president, I'm not too fond of that particular woman.

I don't even know who the front runner is for the Reps.

Anyone ever wonder just how much power the president truly has and how many decisions he has to make that goes against his personal beliefs to uphold X,Y, and Z?

I think I need to start watching House of Cards  :-*

Oops I meant to say, I need to STOP watching House of Cards.

Can't wrap my head around a question that complex.

Hope Trump gets the nod, SNL/late night talk shows will have plenty of good material if he gets elected, that's if he doesn't start World War 3 by mouthing off to other countries.

4 reasons Trump is leading in the polls

I think his message can be toned down and said in a different way. But it seems the people like it, for now....
