Thing with Cruz is that at least you know he's taking the money and while he'll be t beholden to those interests he'll most likely largey stick to his stated policies as distateful as they might be. With Trump as he showed last week with the abortion comments you've no idea what he really believes so you really can't tell what he'll be like if he was to be elected.

Did anybody see that bit on Trevor Noah the other night where he talked about his daughter? *shiver*

Whether he actually paid tax properly or not, it's a lovely image of hypocrisy.
he's a slithery fuck, I'm not enjoying it as nothing will come of it. If he could survive that story about fucking the pigs head, then he's bullet proof

Had a Prius as a hire car in the states once. Once it got up to speed it was grand but was slow to get there so made overtaking a bit shit. Small boot because of the batteries too. That was about 7 years ago though so they might have improved.

There'd definitely be move away from your typical conservative actions because he's jumped between being a democrat, independent and a republican over the years, and he has shown that he doesn't give a fuck about toeing the party line.

But whether he'd actually try get some good shit done, or turn the place into a (bigger) circus remains is the question.
Eitherway, I'm pretty certain Hillary is gonna get it and we'll be in for another global economic bubble in the next 10 years.

Was looking at cars last night and the one that i was veering towards was a Peugeot 3008 which i didnt even realise was a Hybrid until I got home. I know fuck all about cars but thought Hybrids had a bad rep just!

If Trump was elected then there would probably be a democratic senate elected. I reckon he'd actually be quite flexible in making deals with them. Ted Cruz is the exact opposite, he is hated by the GOP nearly as much as Trump because he is too extreme, he's behind the government shut downs over there and he'd never negotiate with a democratic senate.

The only upside of a Clinton presidency is that she would be picking superme court justices.

Never thought about the Supreme court. That's at least one positive from her getting in.

It took them a couple of hours to clear the truck off the road, I heard it was cleared so drove home, then there was another accident about a mile up the road and there's a 3 mile tailback to get off the motorway at the junction with the road closed until at least the early hours of tomorrow
