Melania Trump certainly has a style about her for sure. My wife and MIL are totally infatuated with whatever she wears when appearing in public. I didn't think much until some female co-workers of mine revealed they're obsessed too

Except it now turns out a lot of demonizing Hillary was stuff planted by Russians and companies who supported trump. Not claiming she was perfect, just that could have happened to any candidate against him.

If you think a politician has your best interests in mind then you are delusional.

I obey the law, pay my taxes, and live freely as I can. It is what it is, and my voice doesn't matter.

That's how I see it.

I stopped expecting that from politicians a while ago.

The problem today is having a decent amount of competency and leadership is treated as either a negative or irrelevant factor among many voters (and this applies to both US parties). :(

I am for term limits on all these people. Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters are nearly 80 and still trying to hold on. John McCain has brain cancer and he's pledged to "fight and be back on the Senate floor". Why? What for? Then I read that Kid Rock is running for Senate in Michigan? At these stage in the game, I'm all for career politicians who bilk the public coffers to be voted out. If Kid Rock wins, then what does that say?

Not enough to just put term limits on the legislators. It will just make legislators who don't have enough experience, and who will find themselves reliant on lobbyist and special interests, who would be around longer and have information the legislators want.

I know this because that's what happened when California tried term limits on its state government.

It is true that the lobbyists could come out of the woodwork, but what good is McCain doing now? Sure Jimmy Carter has brain cancer and is ninety-something years old, but JC is one in a million I suppose. But also with newer people (even Populists), the lobbyists don't have an edge on them I guess. But I did see where Kid Rock is up 5 points in a poll over the current Democrat Senator there. Wow.

Yeah we aren't doing the 'hanged' bullshit here.

Keep it civil, or don't post. Next comment that even hints at angry content will get deleted.
