Quote of the Day: Choosing in ‘The Year of the Low Bar’

 

“The [big] picture is that Clinton and Trump are two of the most flagrantly dishonest, corrupt, power-hungry, unprincipled cronyists ever to seek the Presidency. Thus, in 2016, the Year of the Low Bar, Gary Johnson does not have to be George Washington or even Ronald Reagan to earn my vote. He merely has to be not evil. And I am convinced he more than meets that test…
    “Of course, in this election, some see being a decent human being as a weakness…”
Mark Nitikman, in ‘My Morning with Gary Johnson

  1. I pick Trump, unless the Clintons have him assassinated. Assange is promising some more serious stuff, but I think he has it in for Clinton. Hillary looks weaker every day. She is doing no Press interviews. People now know about the arrangements with Washington Post and the Media. Also the DNC arrogant manipulation, and the Bernie set up. The the Clintons look bad all round. Hillary looks physically ugly. She is shrill..Trump has staggering momentum. This is a runaway train.

  2. Also. I notice that we tend to know only the bad stuff about the candidate we don't want.
    Hillary is crooked, and Trump, well " he might be a son of a bitch, but he's our son of a bitch "
