    Interesting but do you feel it says something contradictory?

    You're right. However I don't think percentage turnout is a good way to look at it. People's interest with politics changes over time depending on so many factors. I think it's important to take note of the total numbers that do turn out.

    But I get what you're saying.

    So our foreign minister knew about Rex leaving before he did. What kind of a two bit operation tells everyone else except the person first? What kind of respect is being shown to your staff???

    I will dance a jig if DeVos gets the boot someday. I truly, truly hate her sooooooo so so much. It's like poison in my veins.

    Chinese help?

    N.Korea is the pawn of China.

    China is the real threat if you are not on the side of the Chinese.

    I think you find term limits defeated Obama.
    One wonders if that relationship just got blown up by Bishop mentioning the phone call.

    Surprised she said anything it's well known she likes to disclose as little as could possibly be legally defensible.

    And risk voting for a loser?

    It would be silly to vote for a loser you like, instead of a potential winner you hate slightly less than the other potential winner.

    If they are not going to vote at all - and my comment was only directed at people who abstain - then what difference does it make to them if they vote 3rd party?

    Just seen Ben Sharipos reaction to this and I am not one bit surprised he hated Rex and thought he was useless. Since Rex wasnt Israels lapdog and doesnt want to do Israels dirty work and take out Iran....apparently he was so terrible.

    Well they have to bother voting.

    I totally agree and was being sarcastic.

    Trump being the lesser of two evils isn't an excuse when have more than 2 options.

    The very next line...

    Everything there is a statement of fact. Not opinion.

    Must be tough going through life being so bitter.
