    Both Republicans and Democrats are worthless. Any type of political extreme is bad, extreme capitalism leas to financial slavery, extreme socialism leads to communism and both are BAD. What we need is a mixture of the best of both. That is why I think that Bernie Sanders will shake up the country and do a lot of good for the people so he should be elected president.

    Bill Gates??? Are you nuts? He is just another flaming liberal and really has no concept of a real economy. I’m happy for his success but that was really an anomaly and a one in 360 million chance. He would be a complete disaster for America!!

    Seriously! Why not just have Pee Wee Herman run and get it over with? Bernie Sanders is a crackpot, and needs to be confined to a mental hospital!

    Honestly, I think Martin should lay off the political commentary. He is no Floyd Brown, and doesn’t really have a good feel for the American political system. As a Capitol Hill and 20+ years intelligence service veteran and life-long political activist, I have to say his last two attempts at commenting on the American political system have been weak–at best. Please stick to the financial system, Martin. That is your strength.

    Hi Russ,
    Maybe the problem with the American system lies exactly with people like yourself.
    Living the other side of the ‘pond’ we look at the American system with total disbelief.
    You may just have notice the United Kingdom has just had an election.
    We were weary with 6, yes 6, weeks of campaigning.
    Government back in harness with a slightly different flavour and just getting on with business.
    Compare that with a system that is so up it’s own xxxx nothing gets done. Too many cronies, moral and real corruption etc, etc
    Suggest you remind yourself of your constitution and follow it, not totally distort it to your own ends.
    Oh, by the way I follow American politics a lot and my best friend has been a professor in America for years.
    Martin Hughes
    PS God help America in the next few years

    Hi Frank
    Read my reply above.
    Totally disinterested but read a lot about US politics.
    I am a left wing Conservative [a dying species], so that is slightly right of centre

    Yeh right, the day when Gates will be relevant will never come. Gates was sucessful at Microsoft but it does not mean he is worthy or any where near qualified for our consideration. His constant lobbying of Congress and States to use Common Core is only the usual Progressive foolishness that fills the pockets of other tax dollar mooches !!! Maybe this writer should go back to school and actually take this curriculum and see how completely non educational it is. This program was constructed for kids to fail and with every failure the testing cost more and more, it was designed with failure quotas and there is no way any child will ever receive any form of true history, ability to think for themselves, grow a creative mind or desire, but only be a compliant puppet for the lunatics now in our governments around the country. Gates would just be one more lunatic buying the White House, just like Soros did the last two elections !!!

    We cringe at Jeb Bush over common core and you think Bill Gates can make it? Good grief. He’s one of the idiots who FUNDED it!

    I find it unfathomable that you would leave out Condoleezza Rice.
    Her background in foreign policy service and her excellent command of Russian and Russian policy make her a perfect fit. She would appeal not only to ethnic voters but to those that are mature enough to know that Clinton wouldn’t hold a candle to her skills on he diplomatic stage as well as her European appeal France state she had that “special something”.

    I agree Craig, with one addition! Carson / Rice would be a true quality team that the world would applaud. As a conservative Anglo-American voter This team would be a winner for our country, both are what we need if the media would use their heads when reporting about the dirt they seem to discover. Many quality candidates have been intimidated out of serving our country by this non-productive tactic.

    Not to mention her ability to be controlled like a puppet and dupe Anericans as to what really happened in Bengazi! She is a liar just like the rest of this administration! Are you kidding me?

    Gate’s success came from a near monopoly enforced by treachery against those companies that opposed him. He lives like a spoiled rich kid should but he is as useless as a presidential candidate as Hillary is.

    As for Fiorina, she spied like the NSA on her own board while pounding HP into the ground. Carson plagiarized. Huckabee is a RINO. Bush is a RINO.

    Rand Paul is my choice for president but I am not optimistic.

    Bill Gates is a FLAMING GLOBALIST. He represents Technocracy, the elites’ plan for your future. He’s killing people and rendering them infertile through the wonder (not) of the vaccinations he pushes. On the other hand, he might make the perfect U.S. president – His business practices were always unfair, bullying, invasive and unethical. Should be a great fit for management of The Exceptional Nation.

    Gates would mean even more fascist corporate oligarchy, although it’s hard to imagine how it could get even worse than it is now.

    It’s a demonic world that we are living in everything being up side down. Definitions of the meanings of words being changed to mean things that are not even remotely close to the original definitions. Moral decay and outright greed have been ramped up because of Hollywood and the video gaming industry X rated content throughout most all entertainment. Even children’s cartoons have underlying subliminal content driving an agenda.
    The only candidate equipped with the tools to combat this demonic agenda is Mike Huckabee what he lacks in diplomatic foreign policy could be satisfied by running with Condoleezza Rice as the V.P. However I don’t think that will ever happen.

    Seems to me the Democrats and Republicans have a monopoly on the Government. Between the two of them, our country has been decline for several generations, due to the “vote for the lesser of the two evils” trap, that voters have been confined to for more than 50 years. Everyone wants fresh blood with new and different perspectives, but continue to vote for the same politicians in over and over. WHY? because they have no choice, they can only vote for the candidates chosen by the two parties. Interjecting a third or fourth party into the mix might just reveal what direction the people really want to go.

    Just what America needs another liberal douche bag. Gates is one of those closet liberals you better leery of, he will play both sides to get what he wants, while stabbing the other side in the back. At least with Hilldabeast you know up front she soon kill you if you cross her – remember Vince Foster.

    I am pleased to see the author recognizes that we really don’t know Mr. Gate’s real political agenda. We are all faced with the realities of this two party system and must all work to maneuver the system of the party in charge to our favor. This does not mean we compromise our goals or values. We just have to be sure that we skid under the radar that would define us into oblivion, so that our livelihoods remain untouched by the pitfalls of both parties. Is Bill Gates the leader, entrepreneur, unyielding businessman who has pulled this off? I think a run for office will better tell the tale. We all may yet benefit from learning the truth. I’ve tried the third party voting approach. It has had a futile ending. No savvy businessman would align with the losing team. Why should Bill Gates? For the moral value if it? How can one effect change without winning the power to make it? I say the moral value comes after winning and putting this country back on track! Only a proven leader in the business world has a chance to put this country back on it’s feet. Our founders came here to become self-made leaders. It seems Bill Gates has accomplished that in a most remarkable way! We have to read between the lines here. I say Republican voters need permission to do what it takes to win the agenda regardless of the party affiliation. You don’t win a war by staying in the safe hard of your boarders. You have to invade the opposition. Democrats knew who they were electing eight years ago. Why shouldn’t Republicans use the “favored” party to their advantage? Can we really afford to lose another four years over party affiliation? Do the math!!
