    because you immediately typed things like
    instead of taking 5 minutes to google politifact would have answered all your questions including giving you all the data points they used to form a very simplistic graph

    calm down. I'm on a mobile and didn't think to read the fine print for source politifact. Not the first person to be lazy and ask for a link.

    I read the article and it says it's not supposed to be a statistical representation. I can better conceptualize what they did after reading the article though, and appreciate it. I was under the impression every taped speech was scrutinized. And broke down every sentence as true or false. Seemed ridiculous to begin breaking down every sentence, or proposal. Now I get they took big commentary as they deemed worthy of analysis and used that as the basis. I'm still not sure I agree with the need to break up past true false or half truth, but I'm splitting hairs. The point was made.

    Trump is running on and playing to emotions. facts aren't as important when people are emotional. it's really interesting to me the people coming out in favor of trump. I saw Charlie Sheen and Kirstie Alley came out in support, the pirate the other day, certain posters here. it's easy to dismiss them, insult their intelligence, and move on, but I have been trying to soften that view and consider some sort of intelligent nature underlying these outward Trump dispositions. a bit of a mind bender exercise

    I can't recall exactly, but he came out and said a lot of vaccines are useless and I think said something about them being administered too frequently. You know, typical bullshit you see on Facebook, except Ben Carson is an actual doctor.

    I have been asked many times throughout the past week for my thoughts concerning the issue of vaccines. The important thing is for us to make sure that the public understands that there is no substantial risk from vaccines and that the benefits are very significant. Although I strongly believe in individual rights and the rights of parents to raise their children as they see fit, I also recognize that public health and public safety are extremely important in our society. Certain communicable diseases have been largely eradicated by immunization policies in this country. We should not allow those diseases to return by forgoing safety immunization programs for philosophical, religious or other reasons when we have the means to eradicate these diseases.

    Doesn't really sound like an anti-vaxxer to me

    I rate your post somewhere between "mostly false" and "liar liar pants on fire". :)

    Sorry, he has "ant-vaxxer tendencies." Is that PC enough for you, TheChatch?

    "There are a 'multitude' of vaccines that do not prevent deadly and crippling diseases."

    "Pediatricians have cut down on the number and proximity of vaccines because they recognize there have been 'too many in too short a period of time.'"

    "It is true that we are probably giving way too many in too short a period of time," the retired neurosurgeon said at Wednesday's Republican presidential debate. "And a lot of pediatricians now recognize that and I think are cutting down on the numbers and the proximity in which those are done and I think that's appropriate."

    also

    "Vaccines are very important. Certain ones," Carson said. "The ones that would prevent death or crippling. There are others, there are a multitude of vaccines which probably don't fit in that category, and there should be some discretion in those cases."

    1. How do you know "what Hillary will do?" What does that even mean? How do you have any clue "what she will do?"
    2. We are talking about the POTUS and your qualifications are "we have no clue what he will do but he could be better than Hillary!" That is literally the real life version of shrugging and saying "Fuck It!"

    Damn that's stupid.

    There's a lot of folks endorsing trump simply because of the way the other side is acting. It's an unlikable bunch, and people like to see those types lose.
    It's pretty superficial and something I don't believe should be a part of a presidential election, but to act like that doesn't exist is ignorant. I mean hell, we just had a president serve two terms because of his skin color and the fact that the Kardashians told everyone to vote for him.

    I can't stand trump, and I won't vote for him. But the more and more I see the left dog piling and just personally insulting everyone, the less and less I'd be upset if he actually won.

    Oh man, she is owned by Wall St and special interest. Those transcripts she wont release are rumored to her pledging to never sign any similar laws like Glass-Steagall. Ugh. Her foreign policy mirrors that of the GOP, and might even be even more hawkish than Trump. Only say may because all we know of Trump is the rhetoric. Yay for perpetual war! Her stance on gun control, trade policies, social issues changes to whatever is popular. The only stated policy issue where she is clearly different is women's reproductive rights. As much as Trump has been moving left on minimum wage, I also expect him to move left on that too. She's basically Trump without the bombast. Hillary does what is right for Hillary...

    What's hilarious to me is that people think that there will be drastic changes to our country based on who's elected

    Like we are going to somehow become communist Russia if hillary is elected or nazi Germany if trump is.

    Agreed, but what's even more laughable is that the Republican base will have some serious introspection and self-reflection if Trump doesn't win. There were right wing pundits hoping Cruz would get the nod then get slaughtered to show the crazies that their policies don't work. I mean, if there's one thing Republicans are famous for since the rise of cable news, it's self-reflection.

    honestly think a large percentage of the people who are instantly dismissive of any talk bout Hillary's server don't realize there are multiple investigations and the civil is much more risky to her and why that is the case. give Trump time to spread the claim that Hillary used her time as SOS as a de facto fundraiser for the Clinton foundation/Bill's paid speeches and dudes on here are going to be crying into their demographic spreadsheets on election night
