This does back up my original point that no matter what, Trump will enact change. I doubt his conviction that Trump will lose, but he does cover the points about the party's self destruction.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

He has beaten everybody in the Republican primary because the rest of them are losers. Your "Arithmetic" doesn't even address the systematic challenges facing any republican candidate because of the electoral college, let alone the additional challenges Trump faces by alienating the two most significant voter blocks in women and latinos.

CBC is the best source for commentary on American politics.

Seems I'm not the only one seeing this. Although I'm not able to verify it, it seems that there are multiple incidents of Hillary using voting fraud and false allegations to oust Bernie, but the media isn't talking about it at all.

Of course those sources are kinda the cesspool of the internet so who knows how much they can be trusted.

I wonder how this email scandal will play out? It can't be hidden forever, but do the Clinton crew really think they will have impunity once she's president?

I don't hold very high expectations for American Politics. In case you haven't realized, the US government has been broken for a very long time and only survives because it's "too big to fail" since letting it collapse will affect everyone. It's a process trying to divine any long term planning out of the system, but at this point you have to expect anything to happen. Something normal would be unlikely to improve things long term, but something unexpected might (or just cause a war - those things are always profitable).

If I had to point a finger, it would be at the constitution. It puts too much emphasis on preventing the government from screwing with the people and not enough emphasis on prevent the people from screwing with the government.

Search your feelings. You know this to be true.

Don't just go using terms you've heard in the news. Too big to fail doesn't apply to the US Gov't. I suspect that its much like any other Gov't - the inmates run the asylum. This happens in every Gov't, just to varying degrees and outcomes.

If the US government collapses, it will default on it's debt which will alone have a very negative effect on financial markets planet wide, an effect strong enough to potentially bankrupt or at least severely damage several countries and the top richest people. Thus, "too big to fail"

Not saying that it's impossible, but that a lot of people have a vested interest in keeping it shored up.

It is impossible for a nuclear state to default on its debts.

You've provided your reasoning, you haven't provided sources. You show a fundamental lack of understanding what issues actually cause the dysfunction within our (elected) government. Those problems include political representation not accurately representing the electorate (gerrymandering), the outsized influence of money in politics, and obstacles to universal voter participation. All of those are not caused by the current structure of the Constitution, but could be fixed by constitutional amendment. 

I have been to third world countries and have needed to negotiate the bureaucracy there. Things in the US are scores better than anything approaching a potential failed state.

It is impossible for a nuclear state to default on its debts.

And yet the threat of defaulting is used as a political football, with the US actually having been within two weeks of defaulting. It's more implausible than impossible, and pushing things to the brink makes it a plausible risk if something unexpected happens.

And seems Trump is at least talking about forcing the country to default on it's debt. That should be at minimal a little concerning. He is a candidate for the next president, after all.

Yeah, that's some sound reasoning, there, bub. 

Thing is: your stupid ramblings don't merit a more serious response. Your analysis of the state of US politics is about as coherent as your continued predictions of Apple's imminent demise.

For the record, that would explain a lot about Dulce.
