Oh absolutely, college is an entirely different beast. High school is mandatory general education to make sure you aren't completely useless to society. College is focused and specialized career oriented education that makes you excel at a particular task. You gotta put in the extra work for college, but I really feel that it's unnecessary in high school if you are successfully learning the material. I actually think that time would be better spent educating yourself about something that interests you instead of trying to write a 1000 word essay about what Shakespeare meant when he said "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" and memorizing the names of every river in South America.

I'm sure they intend on selling it, so they probably only care about it lasting long enough to be sold. That's the American way after all.

I would love to see America turn from Economic debt to Economic power, and in order to gain the needs we want as a 1st world country we do need a working Economy; but with him apposing Trump (A business man who on several occasions declared bankruptcy), I would vote for someone who could guarantee Social Policies that could adapt the Constitution to the modern form of Politics in the country.

Politicians, Bernie especially, either don't know or don't care. They want to be elected; that's their job. Bernie's quick to call out famous politicians like Clinton of being sellouts for votes, but Bernie himself is just selling himself at a lower price to make himself more appealing to the lower class.
He's basically the ramen candidate. You get absolutely no sunstanence, but at least he's cheap. That is of course unless you actually make a paycheck, in which case fuck you. Someone has to make the ramen.

Are you kidding me?
A massive middle class is infinitely better than a tiny but rich upper class. Spending by the population goes up like crazy, which has a massive effect in our consumer oriented economies
#244 - anon (08/07/2015) [-]
there won't be a middle class if the companies that employ them are taxed and regulated to death
#63 - kamion (08/07/2015) [-]
Candidates like Trump have no intention whatsoever to use that understanding of economics to anyone's gain but theirs, maybe sometimes their interests will overlap with interests of the nation, but I wouldn't count on it. People like him live completely detached from 99% of the world and have no notion of public gain.
Furthermore, the president doesn't have to understand complex economics, he has people he employs for that stuff, his job is to steer those people in the right direcion.
Being the president is maybe the only position where good intention are what makes you good.
#255 - trolljunkusa (08/07/2015) [-]
I'm actually starting to like trump. I believe he knows what he's doing, but he was built for business. He can't spend his entire campaign being politically correct. He just fucks up speaking.
Bush was the same way. Bush wasn't exactly the best president, but he did good stuff, did what he had to do, and is STILL calling most of the shots when it comes to military strategy (this is why thanking obama for killing osama is retarded. Bush was pretty much 99% of that, including everything leading up to that). But Bush had issues with speeches. He knew what he was saying, but he couldn't put it in a way that would sound good to the American ears.
#248 - anon (08/07/2015) [-]
yeah, everybody who "means well" is doing us a favor. sure thing buddy.
#228 - adu (08/07/2015) [-]
So to sum things up, he admittedly doesn't know shit about economics, but you want him in office because he has good intentions and someone else can figure things out for him. Good intentions don't count for shit m8, just about every political leader has good intentions for their nation. Are we here to compare who has the best, brightest intentions behind patriotic eyes? Or are we supposed to compare who is actually qualified and capable of getting the job done?
It's easy to say that "president is maybe the only position where good intention are what makes you good," but I've still seen nothing at all to justify that claim.
#282 - kamion (08/07/2015) [-]
How old are you?
You can't tell me that you actually think president governs everything from military to schooling to economics.
There are people who do that shit. You have no say in who those people will be, but the president has.
Now if the president wants those people to work for the nation, he will try to have them work for the nation, if he wants them to work for his gain or gain of the people who help him stay in power, he will have them do it.
Don't be a retard, think with your head, it'll do you good.

If it's any consolation to you both I'm sitting here on the sidelines reading a lot of posts and constantly caught in a loop of finding a bright idea and realizing that idea is bad because of a hole and then trying to find a solution and then subsequently finding a flaw. This entire thing is a huge complicated problem. Sigh.
P.S. You know what I think a President should support? Fixing roads and bridges. That is an important problem.
#309 - adu (08/07/2015) [-]
Presidents don't hire people who know more than them, they hire people that agree with them. If this guy wants $15 minimum wage, any intelligent economist would tell them that's not a smart idea, so obviously he's not going to hire an intelligent economist. See the problem?
#355 - kamion (08/07/2015) [-]
Ok you've kinda got a point there, 15$ minimum wage is a dumb idea in these times, I'm 18 and live in Croatia so I could only dream such a salary as a minimum wage. Still, you have to realise that your country will gain absolutely nothing by electing people like Romney or Trump. USA is an industrial, technological and economic powerhouse, it has developed it's economy for a few hundred years, and yet it's still somehow getting swallowed by China, a mess of a country still in the grasp of their crippling regime.
So I get that you try to put your hope in people like Trump, hoping that he will run the country like a business and use all it's potential to restore it's glory. But that's a fool's hope buddy, you don't have to believe me, but you'll see.

I've seen him speak and he seems to understand economics quite well.
#241 - anon (08/07/2015) [-]
that means you don't understand economics either

Mitt Romney would have been a great president. I didn't vote for him though, because at the time some of his social ideals were off.
Donald Trump could go either way. He'll either be a decent president, that will lose all Republican support, because he is secretly a democrat. Or he'll be the worst thing to happen ever, in the history of the country and only work to ensure that he'll be rich for the rest of his shit life.
Sanders is the way to go, because he actually cares about the people. I don't care if he doesn't understand how something works, because he recognizes that there are people that do that will inform him of how to work through an issue.
He won't waste time trying to know everything, nor is he naive enough to rely on everything someone tells him.
#382 - lovinglawliet (08/07/2015) [-]
Trump is an abomination and we need to stop jokingly supporting him, because this Presidential election is going to decide our fate for the next 4 years.
Also, while I am currently planning on voting for Bernie Sanders, I'm actively trying to see who is the better option. But I completely disagree with you on the Mitt Romney thing. Why do you think he'd be a good president?
#386 - cookiedude (08/07/2015) [-]
He was actually a good businessman. His time in the corporate world paid off, and he actually improved companies overall; and a country is more or less just a very large company.
His time as governor was also known as overall very good for the people of Massachusetts, as he helped improve healthcare, the state economy, among other things I'm sure I'm missing.
Mitt Romney is the opposite of Donald Trump. Mitt Romney cares about the people, and not his bottom line, and he actually understands business, unlike Trump.
Currently the only GoP candidate that I would vote for, is Chris Christie, because he actually runs his state and tries to do good. Sure, he is corrupt, but so is every politician. The only politician that is potentially not corrupt, and definitely the least corrupt, is Bernie Sanders.
I'm sure as hell not voting for Hillary if Christie gets the nomination.
#410 - lovinglawliet (08/07/2015) [-]
I'm sorry if I come off as rude, but Mitt Romney is a complete sham. He opposed Obama Care, but the healthcare reform he wrote for Massachusetts is the one Obama used to make it. He even used the same specialists Romney had. His time as governor of Massachusetts was terrible.
He failed to create jobs and made Massachusetts sink to the third from the bottom in jobs of all the states.
Also in Massachusetts he passed tough gun laws and was often stated of saying how he supports it, yet then he goes off and joins the NRA and is preaching how he is an active hunter and how it's a "right we all deserve".
Not to mention that he jacked up taxes of the average person by more than 10%, while he gave wall street bail-outs.
He's done this multiple times with Global Warming, Pro-life/pro-choice, and immigration issues. He will say whatever it is that will get him more supporters.
The only true to his own original opinion thing he took a stand on was the issue with health class. He wants to only allow "staying abstinent for God and marriage" to be taught to our children. This teaching style has been proven less effective than the safe-sex way or even not teaching them at all! Kids absolutely need to know the risks of getting an STD, know how to use contraceptives, and what is a healthy relationship or not. It's cool that he's a Mormon, there are lots of people who are, but he shouldn't mix faith and education like that.
Trump is no different. Yes, he's rich, no doubt about that. But he is NOT a good business man. As countless others have pointed out, he inherited his father's money, used some of it to hire specialists to run his businesses, and then got richer. The businesses he ran himself always went bankrup, because he doesn't know what to do. He depends on these people for hire to keep his wealth, all while being a tremendous ungrateful asshole. Do we really need Trump negotiating with Iran or North Korea? He'll literally get us all killed, so stop dicking around guys and please focus on getting a good President.

Donald trump is rich because he inherited his money from his father and has gone bankrupt a whole bunch of times.
#95 - hitro (08/07/2015) [-]
you mean he abused a system which let him get away with having his companies declare bankruptcy while making out with a shit ton of money, he himself has never, because he make successful companies, some of his companies have, but again so often that is just to abuse the system.
#174 - anon (08/07/2015) [-]
None of that contradicts my reply to the other person however.
