How politics change  
10 months ago when I took isidewith quiz, Trump was much further down.
But now he moved closer to my views and is in the second place (after Gary Johnson).
Now Trump and I share 79% of views (was 69% back in October 2015).
It looks like Trump is doing what analysts predicted he would be doing: after winning Republican primaries he changed his rhetoric to embrace some popular Democratic and Libertarian views.

Hillary Clinton was at 67% and now she is down to 64%.
It's a wrong move after winning Democratic Primaries.
It looks like she does not want to win this elections.
:-)

How do you plan to vote?

Most likely - Gary Johnson.
You can see that he shares most of my views at 93%.

How do you plan to vote?

It looks like I ain't gonna go at all. My state will vote Clinton. My county would vote Trump. Both are disgusting.
Dennis Gorelikdennisgorelik on August 4th, 2016 06:03 am (UTC)
Is Gary Johnson disgusting for you too?

Obama "sacrifices nothing" and had no experience (community organizer with $200K budget).
He promised to close Guantanamo. Not happened.

Trump used rhetoric to stir swamp and get attention.
He is capable to listen and make actual&good plan of actions.
Of course there will be no wall, but pressure on the neighbor to establish law and order and stop illegal immigration and flow of drugs.

The new recession is around of corner.
Bill Clinton's dot-com bubble exploded as soon as Bush moved into White House.
Obama's bubble (borrowing of $10T) will explode in Hillary's hands.

Obama also promised to end Iraq war. That did happen.
That is more important, than Guantanamo.

> Bill Clinton's dot-com bubble

Do you think Bill Clinton is responsible for that bubble?

Really? He just gave small pause to bad guys to regroup and get half of Syria and half of Iraq.

"The U.S. Air Force has fired off more than 20,000 missiles and bombs since the U.S. bombing campaign against ISIS began 15 months ago, according to the Air Force, leading to depleted munitions stockpiles and calls to ramp up funding and weapons production."


> Do you think Bill Clinton is responsible for that bubble?

Absolutely. "It is economy, stupid" (c)

That's mostly Iraq's problem now.
Why should that concern us?

There are no US troops fighting in Iraq anymore.

Do you think Obama should not get involved into bombing campaign against ISIS?

> Absolutely.

What specifically did Bill Clinton do to cause that dot com bubble?

We are responsible for this mess.
Killing dictators like Hussein, Qaddafi, Assad is good thing.
But if we destroy something, we have to rebuild that.
As a moral obligation.

Otherwise we have to deal with huge wave of refuges, without language and working skills to contribute to new country.

"Hillary Clinton: U.S. should take 65,000 Syrian refugees"
For our leftist friend getting a cute girl on stage and mocking Trump was joy,
but for thousand raped German women it was not.

Clinton signed the Financial Services Modernization Act, commonly known as Gramm-Leach-Bliley, repealing the key components of Glass-Steagall.

I side with Gary Johnson, and everyone else is so much further down that they are not worth mentioning. I only remember that Clinton was last.
Dennis Gorelikdennisgorelik on August 4th, 2016 05:26 am (UTC)
So who are you going to vote for?
rezkiy on August 4th, 2016 05:33 am (UTC)
I vote for USCIS who make it so freaking complicated to file a citizenship application (although I am long ago eligible).

Given that I'm in California, Gary Johnson. Were I in a battleground state, it would have been Trump.
Dennis Gorelikdennisgorelik on August 4th, 2016 05:44 am (UTC)
Do you mean you still did not get your US citizenship because it's hard to file citizenship application?

Mostly agree. And we actually discussed it today over beers. In NJ you can vote for Santa Claus, Hillary wins anyway. So, I'll probably vote for Johnson
