lol relativism is not nihilism ... I assume that democracy, freedom, and the principles of the american constitution are things you value, in which case, swearing unconditional allegiance to a candidate should be unacceptable.

Constitutional principles?

What do you mean, like abortion rights and affirmative action?

My only value is to destroy the system that allows for things like this: http://www.unz.com...

Donald Trump has already destroyed half of it

If Trump says he doesn't care about illegals or enforcing any law, would like to continue feeding the military complex, would like to take money from people who can benefit from legislation (bribes), I would probably not vote for him.

If Trump became "worse" than Clinton on:

1. Disrupting the existing political elite
2. Immigration
3. Globalism

I especially liked the pause as the reporters were struggling with the "this is too good to actually be true" aspect...

It's a good gig. All these spokespeople are well compensated in one form or another. (except for the Bushes where it's just personal)

Do you have any evidence to support that assertion, or are you going Alex-Jones-style on this conspiracy theory?

In a discussion with an advisor Trump asked three times within an hour why the USA cannot use its Nukes.

"Several months ago, a foreign policy expert on the international level went to advise Donald Trump. And three times [Trump] asked about the use of nuclear weapons. Three times he asked at one point if we had them why can't we use them," Scarborough said on his "Morning Joe" program."

http://www.cnbc.com...

Also, Trump wants Saudi Arabia to get nukes.

If he called for amnesty, apologized for every mildly controversial thing he has said while on the campaign trail, and then completely reneged his opposition to globalism, I'd consider ditching the Trump train.

Agree with this, and with previous comment of becoming as corrupt as Hillary. But I'm not one bit concerned about all the trivial stuff the dems and liberal media keep trying to use to divert attention from the real issues. I don't care about his comments that get twisted and distorted. I care about his stance on the issues.
