Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Americans love everything military.  You have to see ordinary folks running around in camouflage garb and driving black humvees to get the feel of it.  As for torture and murder, sure they're bad, but who can think about that for more than five minutes?  Just doesn't signify.  Can't stick in the brain.  

By the way, these military-industrial-complex candidates are the Democrats' answer to their genetic inability to commit to policies that might in some way benefit the public.  Once Bill Clinton turned the Democrats into the party of wealthy corporate donors back in the 1990s there was no looking back.  Selling hope  but reneging on the change.  (Thanks, Obama, for that bit of clarity.)  For three decades the Dems have run on fooling the rubes.  It still works, but only in the coastal cities.  The country-side is too destitute to even care.  A reargard action in every sense of the word.

Yes, the Republicans can screw up:  Think Scott in Wisconsin--with his Foxconn deal that was just too clumsy.  (Maybe if Foxconn had included the suicide nets?)  But Wisconsin never should have been Repub in the first place.  

Trump will win in 2020 unless the Democrats run Tulsi Gabbard (:D will never happen).  

You have to understand:  What follows Trump will be worse.

The Fates are kind.
