    Interesting that you think that he might be a viable candidate as an independent, but not as the candidate for the third largest political party in the US. Like, the man's charisma is enough that he could be considered a potential winner on his own (despite competing in a system designed to favor political parties), but not enough to boost the third-largest political party along with him.

    If he were to run on the LP ticket, he'd almost certainly finish better than any previous LP candidate has done. If he managed to get just 5% of the popular vote, the 2028 LP Presidential candidate would qualify for Federal matching funds. The LP would also qualify for matching funds when it came to the primary campaigns. Both of these things would increase the likelihood of the LP being a serious player in US politics. That sounds like a good thing to me.

    It's utterly disgusting how nobody here wants to hold Obama, Biden, or either of the Clintons responsible for egging on their supporters to overturn a fair and free election.

    Which is why the Libertarian nominee is nearly always the third-place finisher in presidential elections, ahead of anyone listed as an independent.

    Yeah, but I don’t see LP purists going for Kennedy because of his various liberal stances. I’m willing to overlook certain things because I don’t think they would pass anyway, but a lot of libertarians won’t.

    Well, they just got their asses on the Project 2025 subversive kill list. Don't they know Trump hasn't even been convicted?!

    Biden is at 27% approval with ages 18-29. That's just insane for a Democrat President.

    Jesus, Trump has gone from comic book villain to Disney evil queen. :lol:
    All he needs is a fucking talking mirror that tells him how pretty he is to pull that bow all the way tight.

    I am waiting for the Ted Nugent/Kid rock collab to destroy those swiftie numbers. Maybe they will get Kanye on board for the Triad of Trump losers tour.

    How is it that the Dems can lose to these people? You really have to be skilled at losing to give it up to the repugs. WTG Joe, you are the fucking man they chose for his ability to get down to that Trump loser bar. Taylort Swift is helping that heap of shit and he still cannot pull widely ahead of the Trump loser base.

    I have been gone since last thursday and I make 1 post and within a minute my pet is back repping me.

    No0w I know why people like dogs. It is like being the center of someone's universe, even if they are a canadian Trumpanzee.

    Jesus, it would be easier to name off the half a dozen Hollywood stars that aren't on Biden's side. Hell, even Ahnuld the former Republican governor of California is against Trump.

    It's a shame he can't run, as he is the one person that might reclaim the GOP from the dumpster fire. He's had a lot of good takes, and while far from perfect, is a far better man than Trump, as at least he has a basic level of human decency.

    Schwarzenegger can run for President. He hasn’t been convicted of being born in another country, so that eligibility requirement doesn’t really apply.

    Hmm, let's see.

    Kid Rock, once famously described by Metro Times (Detroit's alt-weekly) as having "all the charm of a human cigarette."

    Ted Nugent, who wrote an entire song about wanting to bang 13-year-old girls.

    And some dude who's probably just insecure because his career has been completely eclipsed by his daughter's.

    Actually, that's a pretty good representation of MAGA-land.

    Don't forget Kanye the black Nazi. Just because MAGA does not remember him does not mean he isn't there to bring the pain. And oh boy does he make people hurt.

    To his credit though, Kid Rock once said that Trump showed him pictures of the Middle East and asked him about foreign policy, and Kid Rock said 'I don't know man, I'm just a musician.' LOL.

    True or not? Who the hell knows. But sure as fuck believable considering the moron in the White House back then.

    Actually, if you could get Courtney Love sober and lucid, she has a genius level IQ.
    I know I'd listen to her over Rumsfeld or Cheny any fucking day.
    Hell, I'd listen to her high and unstable over those idiots.

    From what I can tell Ahnuld did his level best to be a good governor and his work to end gerrymandering shows he understands what representative democracy is really all about. Would I vote for him over Biden? I doubt it, but I wouldn't lose any sleep over the possibility of our country turning fascist. :spock:
