    Poll: Why do we need a DEMAGOGUE-IN-CHIEF blowhard pundit "leading" the country?

    The President, usually, is a figurehead.[/quote]

    He should always be that. Why should any high policy decision be left to one person? The idea that we need a CHIEF is delusional.

  11. Was Jesus an anti-Roman insurrectionist leader?

    The Jesus-miracle-debunker has to find an alternative explanation for the historical Jesus, because the evidence is that it's the miracle acts which made Jesus noteworthy, and this has to be rejected...

    Poll: Why should one madman make the decision rather than a "committee"?

    I've heard that cliché before, but what does it mean? Or, WHY is one individual a better decision-maker than a committee or a "machine"?

    The only explanation I've heard for that is the cliché that...
  15. Cheap labor & competition & consumer choice has always worked and is the only sustainable economic model.

    And what were they before this "free trade"? Right now they are freer and more prosperous than they were back then. If they are "slaves" now, what were they before when it was much worse for them?

  16. Because of China trade and cheap labor --

    your standard of living is HIGHER! despite crybaby-pandering demagogues Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.

  22. 2 choices: 1. Jobs based on need to get work done, and 2. Jobs to accommodate rabble who otherwise would steal and plunder.

    Yes, I get it you think we are all delusional. But the logic of the situation can only take you to these 2 options:
