Well considering most voting districts are administered by the Rubes, I suspect Trump might be right in saying that their is widespread incompetence and criminal behaviour in the Reb party. He should take the Rebs to court

I guess Trump would call this man a coward for dying. What a shame people like this man have to fight for traitors like Trump

I get the feeling this officer wouldn't have shot his mouth off if it wasn't for the global right winger movement sweeping the globe recently. Disturbing and grim times..

I agree here, the definition of GDP needs to be completely overhauled. It was developed as a measure for industrial output and fails spectacularly to measure things like IP, R&D, and value added inputs. It even fails completely when taking into account globalized supply chains. In fact, it's actually completely ludicrous that we still even use GDP at all

The failure to adhere to fundamental democratic principles should not only disqualify Trump but land him in jail. The fact that his innumerable treasons are considered just another Trump outburst just shows that he has done permanent damage to the US which I assume will take decades to repair. He has done more lasting damage to the US in 1 year than the Soviets in 50. If he happens to win this election, I suspect he will be assassinated quite quickly triggering a complete collapse of the US..

This guy is a coward and a traitor to his country. The UN ruled in his country's favour, yet he is deliberately handing over sovereignty of SC Sea assets to China. Has any leader in history so deliberately ruined their own country as leader? He is surely an enemy of the Philippines

Philippines is quickly approaching the point of not return in terms of the US alliance. Duterte has whipped up the population into an anti-US frenzy for no logical purpose other than to join the growing club of nationalists. The US would be wise to heavily punish them for this catastrophic error

All 4 islands need to be handed over, the bigger ones could have some military leases or something to sweeten the terms. Throw in some development aid to Russia to help their squalid society and it should be a deal. If negotiations sour, turn off the natural gas and oil imports and send the Slavs back a few decades

UNESCO is quickly proving to be a joke: first the farce with China's ridiculous UNESCO bids and refusal to allow Japan to verify, now this obviously political decision that borders on hostility. It's no surprise why this farcical agency has been so defunded
