It is March 19th. The election is July 12th. We are not really even halfway through the term. So please, go back to other things, and we can address this in July.

+1.

Let's debate more relevant stuff: like whether Obama is a natural-born citizen, whether we faked the moon landing, whether Trump's hair is real, etc.

Trust me I was more than willing to wait til June, along with another person who was planning on running. Wylted and Bsh kicking things off so early though forced my hand since now the election is a damn issue again

Endark, I'm quite sure that bench is trolling, and you're caving into it..don't cave into it.

I do not believe Bench is trolling. Not even one iota of my being believes that.
Bench's plan actually is the most substantive one for replacing the presidency that I've seen. He clearly put some effort and thought into that.

He became a supporter for Trump only after it became painfully obvious that Bernie wont be able to win the Dem nomination

Partially true. I never thought (though I wanted him to) Sanders could win the nomination. So now I've decided to join Thett and Rosalie in stumping for Trump. Mostly because it's fun. I'll probably abstain or vote for Stein in the general, though we'll see what happens.

Yeah that's true. The people in the thread who participated in the debate will carry the conversation on to these threads and be inclined to blame the other side.
