    The way that the "nominating process" works in the US political system is that ANYONE is allowed to "declare" that they are a "candidate" for ANY political party (even if they have absolutely no idea what that political party's platform is [or even if there is such a political party]) AND, if NO OTHER "candidate" also "declares" that they are a candidate for that political party then the sole person who "declares" that they are a "candidate" for that political party gets their name put on the ballot as the OFFICIAL candidate for that political party.

    To take it to an absolutely ridiculous extreme, if Adolf Hitler (assuming he is still alive) were to "declare" as a "candidate" for the Democrats - and no one else did - and if Josef Stalin (assuming he was still alive) were to "declare" as a "candidate" for the Republicans - and no one else did - in the same electoral district AND IF the only other "candidate" was from the "Militant Vegetarian, Pro-Homosexuality, Protest Party" then the voters would have to chose between

    • [*someone with a "Big D" after their name;
    • someone with a "Big R" after their name; and
    • someone with a "Big MVPHPP" after their name.


    I rather suspect that voter turnout would be rather low.
    I agree. It was rather broad. I still like the republican party if you can just shave off trumplican party from it which provides the flame these bigots are attracted to.

    True, but the "standard, multi-use, acceptable, unbeatable, logical, argument" is still "That's DIFFERENT!" - isn't it?

    I would reply that being different was the point; perspective was needed. Having reviewed numerous actual problems, perhaps we could revisit the significance of a handful of nobodies saying something.

    White nationalists dwarfed by crowds of counterprotesters in Washington

    Approximately two dozen white nationalists rallied in the nation's capital on Sunday, one year after clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, left one person dead and elevated racial tensions in America.

    But they were vastly outnumbered by throngs of counterprotesters. The showing from "Unite the Right 2" participants fell far short of the hundreds that organizer Jason Kessler was expecting, based on his event permit application.
    Antifa radicals send thousands of morons dressed as ISIS fighters to beat down a handful of patriotic Americans with a twisted point of view on some aspects.

    Oh cons... pumping up the fear of a tiny nobody group calling itself antifa while telling everyone how insignificant their klan base is.
