Do you think Donald Trump should run for president of the United States?
He has just let the press know that he will not at this time. However this is not the first time he has flirted with the idea of running as a republican candidate for president. Perhaps he should just get it over with and out of his system?
Considering he has lost his money countless times, no. But heck if Bush and Obama can do it, why not. lol
I'm fed up with all of the leading figures in both major political parties. Part of the problem is our Tweedledee-Tweedledum two-party system.
I'm disappointed in Barry. He campaigned as an agent of change, and thus far, he's been a lite beer version of George W in too many ways. It may very well be that with our present system, a divided government, with the Dems in the White House, and the Republicans controlling Congress, is the best that we can hope for.
If wish that we had IRV (Instant Runoff Voting), which is similar to the Single Transferable Vote that's used to elect the lower house in the Australian parliament, if I remember correctly. Condorcet is pretty good too. The main point is that if we had a rank-order voting method, with the caveat that you specify your top three choices (and no more than that) in declining order, you're not wasting your vote when you place a 'minor'-party candidate at the top of your list. (I published a Game Theory analysis of politicians' behavior in meaningful multiparty systems, in the Mensa Bulletin, in April of 1996.) Anyway, if we had that, I'd give the Libertarians and other lesser-known third-party candidates serious consideration.
Getting back to your question... Is 'The Donald' worse than the other leading Republicans? Dunno. Since he's never held a major political office (to the best of my knowledge), Trump is a 'pig in a poke'.
seriously, i have said this before. if the U.S votes him in a president, i will give up on the country. the guy is a wealthy idiot who will do a lot more harm then good.

Obviously, I have my views, but I leave this as an open-ended question. There is no question he has become a lightening rod and has stirred great controversy in America, and now around the world. Is that good or bad? Does what he is saying from his platform as a serious contender...

Right now President Trump is meeting with Vladimir Putin. The Ukrainian people are very worried. President Trump has supplied important weapon systems and more for Ukraine's battle against the Russian separatists. He has also not said anything about Russians leaving Crimea. I hope he...
