My favorite point of the night was when Trump said single payer health care could have worked. Rand Paul leap on it saying Republicans have fought against it for more than a decade.

And I'm laughing thinking how's that been working out for you.

Apparently the republican mainstream is still thinking not Obama.

If Trump wins I'm moving to Canada! That guy has no filter and if he becomes president he will piss off many of our Allies and we might find ourselves in WWIII

I'm with you on this... That guy is a loose canon and I don't think he'll hesitate to turn his key and press the red button if you know what I mean.

It may take a few months but it's gonna be armageddon with him in office.

Which is why we need to be educated on candidates from all sides. Overall, we must pay down our debt and protect our nation or else our next leader will just be a pawn of another country.

What is your opinion regarding US national security, right now under Obama?

I'm sorry the deal that Obama made with Iran is ridiculous. Iran turn out big time winners in that deal. What about the US hostages in Iran? (Kerry didn't want to complicate the deal, so we didn't get our US citizens back) Part of the deal we can inspect anywhere in Iran, but have to give a 24 day notice. Another thing to point out, Iran sponsors terrorist.

Two more democrats don't support the deal, article.

I predict this deal will get vetoed by congress.

I think Trump has zero chance.

America is smarter than that... or I hope we are.

For 80% of the population! they don't really have much to lose and much like Hillary, the other 15 candidates on the republican side offer the S.O.S. With sides of distractions on wedge issues (abortion, gay marriage, Immigration etc).  They may talk, but really the basics of government will be the same.  Their approach to international relations will differ in approach, but they won't directly be doing them. 

That's why a Sanders Trump competition would be more interesting.

Trump lacks a filter but is more pragmatic than idealistic or party oligarch.  The rest, including Hillary are either religious zealots or party oligarchs.

So vote for either party, whatever candidate they prop up, it'll be bread and circuses for four years.

It won't matter next year. This is California, any democratic candidate running against any non-Californian republican will win Cali by 5%+.

This next election is about Ohio and Florida.

Sans some black swan event like Long Term Capital Management cratering the markets and tanking the economy spiking unemployment again or ISiS hitting a couple USA based schools, or maybe Iran popping a nuke test between now and October 2016.

Then again none of those are black swans, which really puts a BSE into the realm of potentially scary sh;t.

Clinton turns email server to FBI. According to the Fox News article, "A source familiar with the investigation told Fox News late Tuesday that the two emails in question contained operational and geospatial intelligence from the CIA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), which produces satellite images."

What happen if Trump wins......

Quote
President Trump today announced that the first season of "The Apprentice: White House Edition" will air on CBS this fall. Contestants, including Gary Busey, Ted Cruz and Kanye West, will vie for Cabinet positions. The announcement came as the newly renamed "Hair Force One" touched down in South Dakota for the unveiling of President Trump's face on Mount Rushmore. Meanwhile, first lady Melania had reason to celebrate as her White House-branded perfume, Trump, by Trump, hit Macy's shelves ...

Lol. Jindal managed to somehow wreck Louisiana even more than Fiorina mauled HP.

Looks like Carly Fiorina won the debate last night.
