In all honesty, I'd rather Trump than Hillary because of the following few reasons.
-If I'm going to get shot dead because of our future President's choices, then I'd rather it because we were fighting for a cause and not bending over, neck exposed to an executioner (including her private ones). I don't say this because I'm racist. I could stand to give a fuck. I just rather would not like to see my country become a punching bag for backwards-minded, unadaptive, radically-thinking people when we could just as easily attempt to defend ourselves.
-Mrs. C is dishonest. I don't have the exact video link, but it was posted or reposted last evening showing all of her contradictions. (being against LGBT+ folk, her being a Goldwater gal, etc.)
-I would've voted Bernie, but since *someone* fixed him out of the race, he is no longer an option.
In conclusion, I'd rather have someone with a head full of sawdust and a heart in the right place than a conniving, dishonest person with only their own interests in mind. Only going anon here because I don't want to end up in someone's crosshairs.

Well here's the way I see it. Would rather vote for Satan or a lying snake in the grass whose corruption is so blatant, they might as well wear a t-shirt that reads, "I'll do anything for more power".
And yes I could always vote Bernie even though he isn't primary, but he's a dickless coward who gave up on presidency and started promoting Hilary like he's afraid to die under mysterious circumstances.
I could vote other parties but the nation doesn't even shine a spotlight on them, people don't realize there is more than one candidate and I can't say I particularly agree with every other candidate because they really haven't had much coverage on their say of any political issues,
Donald Trump may be Satan to some people but he's a hell of alot more honest than Hilary, even if he's a shit slinger

I always figured it'd be from raising taxes, honestly. A lot of people flip the fuck out when anyone even mentions the word, but think about it. Sure, you may pay a bit more in the end, but wouldn't that be a modest price to pay to allow individuals to get the health care they might desperately need? If everyone who paid taxes paid an extra 50 bucks (even if it's just 2/3rds of the 300 million people) that's 10 billion dollars right there that could be put towards that kind of shit.
I'm not saying I know a lot about how all that shit works, but it just seems like common sense to want to help the fellow man. I'm not talking about those who leech the system, I'm talking about the gosh darn honest human beings who have been dealt a bad hand.
#129 - afterdelete (07/26/2016) [-]
Why wouldn't it work? More people surely means more people to tax which leads to more money to sustain the people who need it. But to be able to finance it more efficiently the health sector has to be de-privaticed or at the very least reformed to make sure that it doesn't serve as a way to make profit and instead as a way to make people better.
#153 - maradon (08/08/2016) [-]
The reason it doesn't work is cost v income. The cost of these operations would greatly out weigh the income for said operations. As stated, after a couple of years it would be as dry as the social security account made for elderly retired individuals. In theory it sounds nice. In practice it fails in big countries.
#154 - afterdelete (08/08/2016) [-]
That is because of the current insurance system and because there is no control by the government on how much hospitals can charge for treatment.
" A large amount of higher overall hospital spending in the U.S. can be explained by services costing more in U.S. hospitals rather than because U.S. hospitals are delivering more services. When we look across a broad range of hospital services (both medical and surgical), the average price in the United States is 85 percent higher than the average in other OECD countries. To put this in perspective, a hospital stay in the United States costs over $18,000 on average. The countries that come closest to spending as much — Canada, the Netherlands, Japan — spend between $4,000 and $6,000 less per stay. Across OECD countries, the average cost of a hospital stay is about one-third that of the U.S., at $6,200.
As we have previously said, many OECD countries use strong regulation to set prices that hospitals can charge for different services, and some of them even set budgets for how much hospitals can spend. The quality of care delivered in hospitals in these countries are comparable to that in the U.S., and universities are still able to attract the best students to medicine.
If strict price control is not a path that the U.S. wishes to follow, an interesting example that the U.S. could learn from is Switzerland, where the national government provides a ranking of hospital services from most expensive to least expensive. Groups of insurers and hospitals across different regions then use the national government’s ranking to negotiate what prices they ought to pay across the board.
Such an approach still leaves room for differences in prices across regions and states, but it could help smooth out some of the huge differences you see in prices paid for the same services delivered in the same hospital, depending on whether a patient is on Medicare, Medicaid or their own health insurer."

As an European, I think that both Trump and Hillary are both insane in the membrane. However, Trump, I believe; or was led to believe, seems like the lesser of two evils.
I mean, Trump is nuts, not many will deny that, but he actually seems to care for the USA and has decent...-ish plans; and besides, the only other candidate is Hillary and certain people, who have opposed her, have mysteriously died under mysterious circustances in recent times.
I know that my voice means next to nothing in the American elections, but yah know, I like to voice my opinion on here, if nothing else.
#95 - helterskeleton (07/26/2016) [-]
Some people, like the members of Funnyjunk in question, AREN'T okay with that, and are vigorously checking the box of the lesser evil. They're the same people who would become a raging Broncos fan simply because they moved to Denver, etc.
OR, they are all trolling so hard that an 8th year FJer such as myself can't even spot them. Bravo, in that case.

Because of a brew of a) insecure internet kids seeking a big daddy figure to worship, b) appearance of being anti-PC (even though he's ultra-PC), c) the appearance of anti-establishment (even though he loves the establishment and abuses the system in place gleefully, and d) lol memez xD
The fake support of his policy positions were after these first four, they're not actually politically matured, developed opinions. It's all bootyhurt millenials feeling outnumbered by their very liberal peers.

comon. that comeback was really funny.
#80 - buddywuggle (07/26/2016) [-]
Trump is a rich man with a simple goal, get richer. He'll make a peaceful president once he finishes his campaign promises. He'll probably realize we can't survive without trade with china though, so if he weasels out of anything, that would be the okay thing to weasel out of.
Hillary kills anyone she feels like. She has only one goal in life, get the highest kill streak possible. She will destroy America along with several other countries in collateral damage. She has likely gone senile, but as long as she can stand, she's invincible.
Bernie is a man with a good dream, but tried to make it happen at the wrong time. Now if he wins he dies.

uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust smarter than the average...
... and that little edge in intelligence, especially when combined with prolific access to the uncensored, far-reaching information on the internet, has allowed them to peek into truths that much of the rest of the population is not privy too, leading them to conclude, probably correctly, that Trump is the superior choice.
#87 - anon (07/26/2016) [-]
I don't think we should give "Quote of the Century" a) during the second decade of the century, b) to someone from Europe giving an opinion on American politics that likely no American has ever even heard of, and c) a climate change denier talking about the most successful leader on climate change in history.
#135 - swagbot (07/26/2016) [-]
I agree, "gREaTeSt QuOTe eVAr" is a little overboard. I did not make this picture: I merely used it because of its indirect relation to my comment, regarding how many idiot people there are in the world, and pointing out the FJ is basically a little bit smarter than the average.
On the other hane... "Climate Change Denier" and "Most Successful Leader On Climate Change in History" -> Toppest LeL, m80

Lol, wait for Stew Webb a/o Cathleen O'Brien to release the oral-sex-rape photos.
Don't forget the trail of bodies following the Clintons.
Don't forget the 4-chan AMA about the Clinton Foundation, and the fact ("fact") that the FBI chose to not pursue Hillary because it would mean picking a fight with thousands of gov't officials and their departments all at once, with a hostile Obama Administration reigning over the whole thing.
She will not win. I feel something in the air... people are waking up this time around.
#67 - ffinfinity (07/26/2016) [-]
Because Clinton is as shady as they come, with the whole server issue and some news of her trying to rig the primary through wiki leak emails. She also has a habit of changing her political views to get votes. I don't trust anything she says. I mean Trump isn't much better but in my mind he is a lesser of two evils.
Doesn't matter I guess because I'm not really voting for any of those pair of crooks.
#60 - flowgo (07/26/2016) [-]
They're not, but they seem to enjoy supporting him because its a dumb idea. Its like telling a group of people, even shouting it at them, to not do something. ofcourse they're going to do it, just to spite you. Look at Brexit. alot of the voters voted to leave because they didnt think it would really happen, they did it because everyone was screaming stay.
#115 - bibblesworth (07/26/2016) [-]
The whole Brexit referendum was a joke. Right from the get-go they should have made some sort of stipulation like a clear majority (which is normally considered to be 55% and up) to vote for something like that, otherwise you're ending up with a mess like this because of the "majority" (The leave vote only won by 0.27436 percent of the population)

You comparing them like that pretty much sums up how retarded this entire discussion is. A load of people who don't know shit saying 'hurr language X is better than language Y"
No. The languages were designed for completely different things,. That's like saying 'Oh this hatchet is much better than this spoon, the spoon can't even cut wood'. It's a fucking stupid comparison. If people would actually take the time to learn about the semantics of languages and the core concepts defining them, rather than just pick whatever one has the prettiest syntax, we wouldn't have a generation of shit-teir 'Java Developers'
Admittedly you said it was your opinion, and gave the comparison in the context of what you enjoyed more, so I'm not hating on you personally.
