*Reserving the right to change the following opinions:

(watched the other debates, but have been dealing with too much bullshit to blog about everything)

9/26/16 :: The first presidential debate was less savage than expected. Still undecided... Trump appears straightforward and has big business experience. Clinton sure did seem prepared, but to the rehearsed and untrustworthy point. She is obviously very intelligent and possibly fit. They both have the look like that matters, but does Clinton have the stamina? Trump does not pay federal taxes, and most businesses are probably also smart enough to evade taxes, so raising rates might not be truly effective. Interesting how the candidates were wearing reversed colors. True colors? USA needs real change and not a puppet for president.

7/30/16 :: Watched Hillary, Bill, Obama, and Bernie's speeches at the DNC and Trump's speech at the RNC. Now undecided between Trump, Hillary, or throwing the vote to "Peace and Freedom." Bill Clinton was a good President, looked happy, healthy, and it was kinda cool hearing him and Obama talk up Hillary. Trump is probably right about a rigged election and Burn E got burned.

6/26/16 :: Just when Russell was about to post that he decided to vote for Trump, news came that Burn E was still in it. Coincidentally, Russell stumbled upon a randomly cool Bern E rally that shut down Sunset Blvd. in front of the CNN building in Hollywood. #RockTheVote @BernieSanders

2/17/16 :: Watching the presidential debates was the first research Russell did on most of the candidates for the upcoming election. Reading tweets does not make for an informed decision FYI. Based mostly on the debates; thinking Bernie right now. Trump is cool, but not sure if he should be President. Cruz and Rubio seem like fags and that is not an attack on sexuality. Probably should not put another Bush in office, and Hillary has too much cock, so Billโ€™s bj was probably more justified than lying about not inhaling. Think it is going to be Bernie or Trump; still undecided might vote for โ€œPeace and Freedomโ€ again. Actually agree with most of the candidate circus: persevere the constitution, national security, and free will, fix health care and reform the justice system, tax the wealth, create jobs, etc., but who should lead the nation? Who is more about action than banter? Have the people even heard of the other candidates? Got thoughts?
