R-Rated Republican Debate


#1

So during the debate, Trump talked about how big his **** is (or how little it isn’t, same difference). Isn’t the GOP supposed to be the party of family values? What happened to you guys?


#2

:asleep:


#3

Who ever said/claimed Trump was a Republican? Less strawmen more substance.


#4

I though Democrats were all about diversity. Where is the black candidate this election cycle?


#5

We Democrats are more concerned with policy than skin color. But I note the GOP black candidate just flamed out, like a certain other GOP black candidate in 2012. The GOP, at least until you old guys die off, will never vote for a black president.

But back to the topic at hand: isn’t it embarrassing when you have to shield your kids from watching a GOP debate?


#6

:rofl:

Hilary sure wan’t concerned with policy when she refused to follow the State Departments policy concerning classified emails. As for Bernie, he needs a economics class before he can start writing policy. But I digress. Vote for a criminal or a man with a 3rd grade understanding of economics. Oh you Democrats sure have it tough.

Again who has claimed Trump a Republican? Other than your democrats of course.

See, I can play the strawman game too!


#7

Every candidate last night claimed to plan to support the eventual Republican candidate, even if it was Trump. As much as the other candidates claim to hate Trump, they still aren’t willing to disavow him as a Republican at risk of splitting the party in two. So pretty much every Republican candidate this election style, despite not wanting Trump to be the nominee, will not say he isn’t a Republican.


#8

My dog is a Republican. Does it make him one simply because I say so? To be a republican means you are, at least, socially and economically Conservative. Trump is anything but. Anyone can pick a party to run under. It doesn’t make them so.

Besides I hate the term Republican to describe Conservatives. Conservatives, as a whole, are too diverse a group to be generalized.


#9

Nope. Being a Republican’t just means your voter registration card, says so. Nothing More. There are plenty of Republicans who have no clue about conservatism. There is no test, or measure that can disqualify one from being a Republican. You declare, and there you are, a Republican.


#10

Yeah, I know. We’re actually obsessed with race. I wondered if anyone would buy that.

Hilary sure wan’t concerned with policy when she refused to follow the State Departments policy concerning classified emails. As for Bernie, he needs a economics class before he can start writing policy. But I digress. Vote for a criminal or a man with a 3rd grade understanding of economics. Oh you Democrats sure have it tough.

I hate Hillary, but countries with universal health care beat us on every health care metric, from longevity to infant mortality. Our joke of a health care system is about the worst in the industrialized world. Unless you have money. Which I do! (Actually, as a teacher, I have great benefits, and only OK money). Bill O’Reilly is right that we can’t educate every college kid in the country for free, but at least the Dems are talking about kids graduating college with $300,000 in student loans. Where is the GOP on this?

Again who has claimed Trump a Republican? Other than your democrats of course.

Uh, Trump himself?

See, I can play the strawman game too!

Indeed.

My dog is a Republican.
[/quote]So is mine. He supports Rubio :plain:


#12

Would you support your dog for president? The guys in the last debate all said they would support Trump as the GOP nominee.


#13

An adult accumulates debt and it is somehow societies problem. Give me your address so you can send you my credit card bill since your so keen on pay others bills.


#14

My dog’s not eligible. He’s a dog…


#15

What do you mean, “you guys?” Most of us on this site don’t want Trump. I sure won’t be voting for him; primary or general.

That was evident in 2008 and 2012…

I would be interested to know how much longer Europe can maintain their current level of public services given their decline. Its easy to point to Europe as some bastion of “How Socialism works” but they are living off old wealth. Much like Greece they will all eventually crash and burn. Even the almighty USSR couldn’t stave off their own destruction.


#18

Well, there’s the rub. What do you do with an aging population that demands access to expensive advanced medical care? As you imply, eventually the well of public dollars runs dry. You can run up more debt, shift spending from other programs (like defense) to compensate, you can try to get more revenue out of the wealthy, or cut back on govt. provided medicine (or, in the case of Medicare, govt. insurance).

I suspect we’ll end up doing a combination of all of the above, but mostly we’ll run up more debt. Japan’s demographic bomb exploded awhile ago, and they now have a whopping 200+% debt-to-GDP ratio (ours is about 80%).

[/quote]Greece was pretty much a manufactured crisis. Germany was the one doing it. Take a look at Iceland. Both of them were in the exact same position, but their response was different. Iceland is fine, while Greece is in shambles.

It just proves how important it is to have a government operated by patriots, over good global citizens who will enslave themselves if Papa Germany taps his boot. Europe will be just fine if they have smart administrators. They’re going to collapse if they have weak, stupid leaders.

But if they don’t handle the Islamic wave pouring in there, they won’t have to worry about it. I’m sure their Islamic rulers will make certain that their medical expenses in old age will not trouble the youth :wave:
