President Trump announced his candidacy immediately at becoming President so that was settled.

Now we have another.

Got my attention span going. Will be interesting to see how this goes. And would be funny as hell she did run and win. 😆

This administration has turned me from vote for who I think is pest for the position to a yellow dog democrat, so if she runs as a democrat I will vote for her. Cannot be worse then the present.

people have to stop focusing on the presidential elections and instead realize that the ONLY way to make a positive change is to elect the right people in your local elections. As Bernie Sanders rightly pointed out power comes from the bottom up.

the elections we just had this past November were a good start, but every American HAS to stay focused on 2018 and get OUT the bastards

Getting as close to really everyone as possible to actually go and vote, and perhaps even think about who they vote for beforehand, would be a good start.

I'm at a loss as to how to do that, though. It is a problem here in Germany too. I can't vote, not being a german citizen and all, and don't really know for sure who I would vote for. Merkel is doing a fairly good job, actually, but she is in the wrong party. The SPD might be the right party, but they are not showing a very united front. Whatever, there are far too many people here who, faced with this, don't go and vote, and honestly believe (or at least claim to) that this is a legitimate and effective form of protest, and it will some how teach the politicians a lesson.

I think, by the time enough shooting had been done to really change things, we might have a problem with environmental damage due to lead poisoning. 😉

The Romans didn't seem to mind lead.

Wore it nothing. They drank it.

Hmmm, I read something somewhere that indicated that one could make a case for a connection between lead water pipes and the mental state of several of the less stable emperors...
