how is Trump even an option tho

Because there are people in this country that liked him for his open mouth and practically uncensored conservative views. Everyone underestimated him and wrote him off as a joke because “people can’t really be falling for this, right?” The people who support him come in huge numbers and it shows now. He used to be a businessman, but as a presidential nominee for the Republican party, he is technically now a politician and we have to deal with it. He is an option because no one stopped him. People dislike Hillary, but they should dislike Trump even more because he is a rich white man who “took advantage of American laws” (Donald J. Trump: Presidential Debate 9-26-16) and we don’t need that sort of man in office. If you dislike Hillary and think she’s going to be a bad president, just remember we’ve had bad presidents before and we’ve been able to recover from them. And then we’ve had a terrible president for 8 years that we’re still struggling to recover from, but we’re making progress thanks to Obama and our nation as a whole. Also, After doing some research, Hillary is a lot more like Bernie Sanders than I realized. Aside from the corruption and the many inexcusable mistakes she’s allegedly made in the past, “Secretary Hillary Clinton” (Donald J. Trump: Presidential Debate 9-26-16 on multiple occasions) is honestly or best bet with this election. If she wins, we win. If Trump wins, so do rich businesses that have been ripping people off, White supremacists, radical Christians, and the KKK all win and they’re already out of control as it is. We don’t need them to press any further.

Opinion (whether unpopular or not): Hillary Clinton would not be a bad president.

Fact: Hillary Clinton is the most truthful candidate that ran, even more so than Bernie if we look solely at “True” statements. (Hillary at 23%, Bernie at 13%). If we combine “True” and “Mostly True,” Hillary is one whole percentage point behind Bernie (51% to 52%).

Fact: Hillary Clinton has experience.

Fact: Hillary Clinton is always most unpopular when she is running for something; once she wins, her approval ratings skyrocket because she gets the job done and listens.

What, exactly, are liberals and progressives afraid of with her being president?

“I’m just exploring all my options”

You have no options. Voting for a third party candidate is effectively throwing your vote away. It’s a BINARY CHOICE

You are going to get us all killed.
You are going to get us all killed.

You might not remember what happened last time, but I do. Leftists swore up and down an Al Gore Presidency would be “just as bad” as a Bush Presidency. That was the EXACT phrase they used.

“Al Gore is a corpratist,” they said.

“I want to vote for something instead of against something,” they said.

Now, over a decade later, the entire GLOBE is still trying to correct what was done during the Bush administration–global financial collapse, SCOTUS nominees, TWO endless wars, drone strikes, the Patriot Act, No Child Left Behind, Isis, DICK CHEYNEY.

Open your eyes and see how the tide is turning. For the past 10 years, there’s been a steady rise of right-wing ideology and politics. There’s UKIP and the Brexit, France and their damn neo Nazi Marine Le Pen, whatever is happening in Brazil right now. Canada only just ousted a leader who muzzled scientists who spoke about climate change!

And now we have the possibility of Trump. Trump who, as of this moment, has a 38% chance of winning according to Five Thirty Eight. Not 38% of the vote. 38% chance of winning. Those aren’t terrible odds. They’re better odds than rolling a specific number on a die, 16.68%. 

Do you understand that we have a chance to flip the Supreme Court for the first time since the 60’s? 

Remember all that Civil Rights shit from the 60’s? Do you know what happened to it, why it didn’t usher in a new age of equality like MLK’s Dreamers hoped? The Burger Court happened to it. The Burger Court is the conservative-majority Supreme Court that came into power in the backlash following the 60′s. With that Court came a conservative jurisprudence that would last for generations. It was the Burger Court that stymied de-segregation efforts, and created ‘white flight’ by ruling that de-segregation orders couldn’t be extended past district lines. It was the Burger Court that laid the groundwork for Citizens United, when they ruled that corporations could spend money in politics. Everyone was so shocked when SCOTUS ruled corporations are people and money=speech. Well, thank the Burger Court!

Now, for the first time in SEVERAL DECADES there is an opportunity to flip the Supreme Court. We haven’t had a liberal jurisprudence since the 60′s. And look at what’s coming down the pipe–anti trans laws like HB2, Affirmative Action, housing rights, repealing Citizen United, immigration, abortion, gun control, police brutality, climate change, etc. 

I am begging you to vote Hillary. And tell others to vote Hillary. I won’t quibble over whether her policies are better than Trump’s (they objectively are) or whether or not she is a better person than Trump (that’s…more subjective). The SCOTUS nominations should be reason enough. PLEASE don’t make me live through a Trump administration. Please don’t do this again.


“President Business? Pfft.. That guy. He was always setting these funny little traps…”

You dun goofed up, PB.

The final gif is priceless. My favourite is probably Emmet shaking his head like “not cool, man. not cool”. And Bad Cop with his chair.

This is my headcanon for Reformed!Business though. Accidentally slipping up and making doomsday devices or lacing soup with glue, just out of habit.

Bad News, Republicans: President Obama Has Erased Bush's $1.4 Trillion Deficit Mess

Bad News, Republicans: President Obama Has Erased Bush’s $1.4 Trillion Deficit Mess

Sorry, Republicans. It looks like President Obama has successfully cleaned up the federal deficit mess left by former President Bush despite your repeated attempts to sabotage him. Republicans claim to be the party of fiscal responsibility – despite running up record deficits and ballooning the national debt with tax cuts for the rich and never-ending wars. But that title is about to be owned by…
