    It's kinda hard to learn the truth about independents, because they get little to no coverage from the media.

    I would never call another nation a "shit-hole". As I've pointed out, the U.S. is not anyone's poster child for morality.

      It isn't hard. The green and libertarian parties both do their own debates, streamed online. The candidates almost always have social media presence. And they usually all get some coverage on local channels. I voted for Jill Stein last election, because she aligned closer to my own values than any other candidate. (Not to say I supported everything she said, but I supported more or her ideals than anyone else and she pissed me off less than other candidates.) I gathered most of my knowledge of her from youtube videos, she'd been active politically for a while but just never got any national attention. So there was a lot of information on her. Same goes for Gary Johnson. Now, if you step outside of the greens and libertarians, you'll probably have a much harder time finding information. But I'm sure a few google searches on their names will yield something.

      You're on the internet, information is only hard to come by if you choose not to pursue it.

        I can't believe people are suddenly acting like Haiti isn't a shithole.
        How many people have Haiti on their top ten list of countries they'd go to if America disappeared?
        Not fucking many

          Haiti is a classic example of Easter Island.

          They over-populated an island without sufficient resources, now everyone is in poverty, but generations of starvation lay in their future.

          Natural Selection doesn't necessarily advance the "best" life form; It merely advances the luckiest life form.

          You were lucky enough to be born in a different womb.

            What I expect is you and others in general would collectively say at the very least -- "Yea, he's an asshole"

            Or even better -- "Yea he shouldn't be president"


            What I don't expect, which is the tone I constantly hear is -- "Meh.. whatever."

            Or worse -- "He's doing nothing wrong."

              Lack of resources, overpopulation isnt the problem. The french just fucked up their economy years back then abandoned them. The spanish treated the Dominican republic much better and the spanish speakers in DR use their economic leverage to continue fucking up haiti.

              if it was just a matter of resources, there wouldnt be such immense disparity between the 2 countries.

                I'm sorry but I prefer my president to be smarter than a 5th grader.

                  Problem isnt whether or not haiti is shithole, its trump's belief that being from a shithole makes one less worthy of being American and doesnt seem to understand the value of helping the needy.
                  Then theres the matter of all the other comments he's made about haiti(they all have aids ect).

                  also his general lack of professionalism is pretty disturbing.


                  it also also contradicts the right's "we/trump dont hate immigrants, we just dont want them coming here illegally".

                  trump likes wealthy(white) immigrants.

                    I agree. Every action he takes should be scrutinized and, if it fails to meet accepted standards, it should be condemned. I disagree vehemently with anyone who says that "the left is blowing this out of proportion" because the idea is to let Republicans know that his behavior is unacceptable so that they never support someone like him again. I don't care if it's something as small as him picking his nose on camera in front of the entire US population. We should all expect a certain level of decorum from our highest elected office, and if he fails to meet those expectations then demonize him for it until he either does better or breaks down enough to do something impeachable.

                    And it's not just Donald Trump or republicans. Anybody holding that office should be held to the highest standards because they're representing us on the world stage.

                    You are completely free to call Haiti a shithole. That's your right. I however do not like the idea of the man that is suppose to be representing ALL of us, calling that country a shithole.

                    Furthermore if that is what he thinks about Haiti, what does he really think about Texas, Florida and particularly Puerto Rico who were all devastated by hurricanes. Is PR a shithole island now too? Is that how he is going to address the homes of the 3.5 million Americans who live(d) there?

                      Well, I think he's an asshole too (and shouldn't be president, but neither should our "friend" Hillary Clinton either). Honestly, I think most people, including myself, are too used to Trump's shit to vocally express something everyone knows at this point and have probably said themselves many times already, lol.

                        If Puerto Rico became a State, they wouldn't be a shithole any more.

                        No, don't take this post seriously. I'm just being antagonistic for the hell of it.

                          No. That's the problem there. Not everyone is voicing that thought. They either defend him or shrug it off. That then leaves others like myself who do voice it to look like crazy people infront of his supporters.

                          I have more than once in the past year wondered if I was the crazy one because of all this political nonsense... like dude.. this isn't normal. This can't be accepted as normal. Why is everyone shrugging it off and hoping it'll sort itself out and everything will get back to normal?

                          It just won't. It just bloody won't. :/

                            You know what's funny, Norway is one of the richest countries per capita in the world. Those people have a great time. I bet Norwegians are like "Aw why would we want to come to your shithole country?"

                                    That's a bit of a stretch and it's dumb to play the "How else can they feel" cause you're not a mind reader, you'll be making an ass out of yourself one way or another

                                        Its worse in some countries than others.

                                        Haiti is far more corrupt than iceland for example
