    It's that time of the decade again folks! Republicans colliding with Republicans and Democrats colliding with Democrats to decide who will lead their part in the election next year, and things are really heating up! Jeb Bush, widely considered to be one of the frontrunners of the nomination, has officially announced his candidacy after nearly two years of anticipation! But not only him, we have a power-pack group of candidates, from the Tea-party darling Ted Cruz to the moderate ex-governor George Pataki! And just like in 2012, there's even a black guy and a woman; Doctor Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina. We even have some old-timers coming back into the show for another round at it; Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum are all official candidates for this run! Longtime Congressman and Senator Lindsey Graham has his hat in the ring, along with Marco Rubio. And who can forget the authentic Libertarian fellow, Rand Paul?

    But that's just the start! Bobby Jindal, Donald Trump, Chris Christie, John Kasich and Scott Walker have all shown an interest in pursuing the nomination, rounding out the possible candidates to an amazing 16 contenders! With most debates limited to ten people, no clear frontrunners and a lot of overlap in those candidates, I'm not one to envy the organizers for the events!


    On the Democrats side, things are a good bit cooler. Hilary Clinton is a clear front-runner, pulling a majority in every poll to date for the nomination, returning from the last election and having previously served as Secretary of State under Obama's first term, Senator from New York and First Lady as husband of the beloved Bill Clinton. There're also Lincoln Chafee and Martin O'Malley, both previous governors of Rhode Island and Maryland respectively. They're down in the polls, only pulling single digits.


    But I haven't even mentioned the best candidate, oh far from it. Hilary may be progressive, but she isn't progressive enough and she has too much baggage on here, what with the e-mails and Benghazi. No, there's only one REAL progressive in the race and that's

    (drumroll...)


    ☆BERNIE SANDERS☆ MOTHERFUCKERS!

    Now I know what you're thinking: "Candles, who the fuck is Bernie Sanders and why should I give a shit about a septuagenarian from Vermont of all places?" Well I'll tell you why, in a handy-dandy list of what he believes in:

    • Sensible gun control. That doesn't mean banning guns, that means background checks, psych testing and safety training, all of which are sensible approaches to a real problem.
    • That mandatory drug sentences only serves to put marginalized people into prison, ruining their chances at improving their lives and forcing them into a revolving door of hell.
    • That people deserve a real living wage that would let them live without fear of going hungry or not making rent.
    • That healthcare is a human right and that healthcare should be provided to all men and women in the country and paid for by a single-payer system.
    • That the military has too much money spent on it while domestic policies are underfunded.
    • That student debt is overwhelming citizens at a time when demand for skilled workers is at the highest it's ever been and that all people have a right to a free college education.
    • That no content provider should be discriminated against by ISPs simply because they pay the same as everyone else.
    • That if a bank is too big to fail, then it's too big to exist.

    Did I mention he has an authentic Brooklyn accent? I know you want to see the President of the United States release some BROOKLYN RAGE on some assholes!

    There are only three emotions this man feels: Happiness for himself and others, Pride for his country and PURE UNBRIDLED PASSION for what he believes in! Out of everyone who's in the race this election, there's only one person who will stick to his guns and never promise what he doesn't believe it, and that man is Bernie Sanders.


    For those of you who are interested in who you'd vote with, there's a handy-dandy website that shows who you'd agree most with policy-wise. Even Euros can take the quiz! Who would Empires vote for? I'm curious to see the results. Here's mine to start with.

    Also can't forget that Based Bernie doesn't take donations from greedy corporations, only from workers unions, unlike Hillary Clinton who's got her hand in every pot. I hope that he sparks a socialist faction in the democrats like Ron Paul had with Tea Party.

    Americans,


    It is time for a real change.




    We don't need no hypocrite Democrat who will lead us into a socialist political correctness tyranny.
    We don't need no hypocrite Republican who will lead us into a imperialist police state.


    We DO NEED a libertarian who reduces the influence of the state to a minimum.


    It is time for Rand Paul!



    [​IMG]


    He defends the US constitution, the rights of the US citizens without making this country a paradise for welfare abusing latinos.



    Rand Paul opposes NSA spying more than anyone else.

    He filibustered 13 hours(!) against the Patriot Act and prevented it to be renewed.Meanwhile feminist and lesbian Hillary Clinton loves NSA spying so she can put heterosexual man easier into prison.

    He introduced a bill in the United States Senate that would prohibit the domestic warrantless use of unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly identified as “drones" AND THAT WAS IN 2012!

    Other people talk, Rand Paul acts.


    Rand Paul is for the people:

    • Against lefties taking our guns away.
    • For our civil liberties.
    • Against Washington forcing states to allow homosexual marriage.
    • For taking the fight against terror serious.
    • Against imperialist wars that only serve the jewish lobby.


    STOP HILLARY CLINTON, the disgusting hag that will criminalize heterosexuality even more, while letting perverts marry and waste tax money on feminists.


    LIBERTY NOT HILLARY

    Rand Paul is the president we need, Rand Paul is the president we want.

    ☆☆☆AMERICANS, VOTE RAND PAUL!☆☆☆

    "That healthcare is a human right and that free healthcare should be provided to all men and women in the country."

    Are you serious?
    We have pretty much the best "paid" healthcare over here and it still can't sustain itself, like, not even close. We have to feed it with billions of taxpayer's money.

    I can't imagine "free" healthcare in United States, with .3 billion population and hella expensive medical service.
    This really sounds like a rubber check.

    A fuckton of money gets lost in having to deal with insurance companies, people getting treatment in emergency rooms, lack of preventive healthcare.

    I did mis-type though and meant single-payer healthcare rather than free healthcare. I've corrected it in my post.

    No economy can support healthcare needs of a country. It should try, though.

    Some libertarian, a real libertarian would let me defend my home with an m16 while selling crack out the back with my tranny spouse.

    Still would vote him over neocon warhawk clinton.

    How is it a delusion if most 1st world countries implement social health care.

    Well, it's a state's rights issue. Rand Paul isn't saying that gay marriage should be illegal, he's saying that the states should decide it on an individual basis rather than the court system or the federal government. He would support your right to defend your house with an M16 while selling crack with your tranny spouse if your state government allowed it.

    The supreme court is deciding it, based on constitutional grounds. It's neither the purview of his current branch or the one he wants to be a part of, so why do we care?

    This is one of those suggestions where we go, "ok this is nice, but would it still be the same country?"

    If you were making a new country that is like this one, then maybe you can make it this way.

    But it wouldn't be Murica. Murica has built up a dedicated fan base because of the way it is.

    So this is a good suggestion and I'd love to see the suggestion get implemented in a new country that is like Murica, they just can't be implemented in Murica.

    Took me fucking ages and not all the answers really made sense imo. It's like I agreed with more than 1 or disagreed with a few, but I figured the "write other stance" thing would essentially rule out your response.

    Lmao, I got fucking affiliated with green and socialist party. This kind of proves my point that the mainstream right wing party in the UK (Conservatives) are actually less right wing than your slightly left wing democrats.

    No, that quiz just has a leftist bias. You answer questions like a reasonable human being and it says you're some kind of socialist. Niggas be cray.

    No offense But Candles when you get to be married, own a home, and have your own children, bills, financial obligations, I am pretty sure you will see things differently.

    I am paying more for health care than I ever have since this obamacare atrocity was forced on us and just got a letter they are increasing again and will cost me 700.00 a month!!! I am paying for child dental and eye care (have no kids)but it does not cover those items for myself.

    When you work your ass off and try and make a living to pay your bills then the govt sticks its butt in where it DOES NOT belong and makes you pay for others when you can't even afford it for yourself, its unfair.

    I was a democrat all my life until 7 years ago, because these "new" democrats do not respect the constitution and want to change the USA and copy a form of govt that has failed time and time again.
