Re: “Undermining democracy

Good analysis of the Democrats' inability to take back the seat they lost in '96. They probably won't try again 'seriously' until 2022.…

Re: “Undermining democracy

Actually if the "loser" loses, America and the free world will be the real losers.

Re: “Undermining democracy

It's not so much that Clinton is winning
but that Trump is a loser

Re: “Undermining democracy

This from the transcript of the first debate debate held Sept 26, Holt moderator. Why isn't the media bringing this remark from Trump of support? BTW a lot has happened since Sept 26 to indicate that there is and may continue to be vote fraud. In view of that, why wouldn't the loser question the final election results? And what if Clinton lost? Would she scream "no fair! Election rigging! Election fraud"? Isn't she and her cohorts now "setting the stage" by pointing a finger at Russia trying to manipulate US elections against her?…

HOLT: One of you will not win this election. So my final question to you tonight, are you willing to accept the outcome as the will of the voters? Secretary Clinton?

CLINTON: Well, I support our democracy. And sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. But I certainly will support the outcome of this election.

And I know Donald's trying very hard to plant doubts about it, but I hope the people out there understand: This election's really up to you. It's not about us so much as it is about you and your families and the kind of country and future you want. So I sure hope you will get out and vote as though your future depended on it, because I think it does.

HOLT: Mr. Trump, very quickly, same question. Will you accept the outcome as the will of the voters? TRUMP: I want to make America great again. We are a nation that is seriously troubled. We're losing our jobs. People are pouring into our country.

The other day, we were deporting 800 people. And perhaps they passed the wrong button, they pressed the wrong button, or perhaps worse than that, it was corruption, but these people that we were going to deport for good reason ended up becoming citizens. Ended up becoming citizens. And it was 800. And now it turns out it might be 1,800, and they don't even know.

HOLT: Will you accept the outcome of the election?

TRUMP: Look, here's the story. I want to make America great again. I'm going to be able to do it. I don't believe Hillary will. The answer is, if she wins, I will absolutely support her.

Re: “Undermining democracy

Last night Mr. Trump's refusal to answer whether he would concede to Secy. Clinton if he lost the election goes right to the heart of this paragraph:

"Trump's comments undermine the very foundation of American government. They are different from smears against his opponent, bigoted rhetoric or boasts about forcing himself on women. So many things Trump has said in the last year have been crass or dishonest, but they were politics—attempts to win votes within our electoral system. His new lies, utterly unsubstantiated, are designed to convince his supporters to reject that system. They attack democracy itself."

At the very least, no matter what her alleged crimes and hated reputation, Secretary Clinton has given every indication that she will abide by rule of law. Mr. Trump has amply demonstrated that he has not intention of doing so. This alone is the bright line separating the two candidates.

Re: “Undermining democracy

Here's all the reason anyone needs for supporting Trump: Hillary Clinton. BTW Greg. I caught you on Talk Back Monday. Would rather have heard your political comments than ghost stories. ;^)

Re: “Undermining democracy

I remember when James Stgoddard announced he'd be running for the U.S. House as a Dem...months before Juneau announced.

Those of us that follow MT politics closely knew the Dems weren't going to be taking that seat back as far back as then.

And now we see that this is what'll happen.

Dems should talk about why they've lost this seat 9 elections in a row, and now it looks like 10. They should talk about this, but they don't and they won't after the election.

So they'll lose again in 2018 as well.

It's sad.

Re: “Undermining democracy

Trump's statements are representative of his grotesque being. Voters would be well advised to avoid supporting him. He is toxic and dangerous.
