It (HSR) was never going to work, and even if they built it, would lose money, and require more and more Subsidies. The Train was never going to work, it was a payoff to the Unions for their support of Liberal Democrat election campaigns. It was never going to work, because it was already under funded and over budget even before the first train rolled out of the station.

Reality is a bitch to people wearing rose tinted glasses.

The reality is, HyperLoop is much more attractive .. at least in concept.

Robert Byrd can renounce everything he did, but that doesn't negate that he did those things. And I have never seen Donald Trump actually courting racists "Hey KKK, I want your vote". In fact, I have seen him courting black people quite a lot, and there are enough black people who don't believe Clinton's "act" in front of Black people (Fake "black" accent, "hot sauce" comments etc).

"David Duke endorsed me? OK, alright. I disavow, OK?" Trump said, seeking to quickly move on to another question.

Apparently that isn't good enough for you. .

Keep in mind, I am NOT voting for Trump. Gary Johnson for me 100% But the KKK has also endorsed Hillary, and I don't see you protesting her.

The LIbertarians had at least four people running. They only put one on the ballot, because Libertarians do not believe the government should be a part of ANY political party's election. Libertarians don't have any problem with political parties putting their own candidate (singular) on the ballot, what they oppose is the Government sponsoring party politics via the "primary" process.

Can you give me one good reason why the government should sponsor (private) party elections?

Brexit isn't the horrible choice the anti Brexit people want you to believe. It also isn't the Panacea that the Pro-Brexit people say it is.

It will have good bits, and bad bits, and in the end will mostly be a wash. Which is bad for all the people who want globalism touting it to be the cure all for all of man's ills.

If Trump wins it will be confirmation that democracy is failing in the English speaking world.

Perhaps you like the kind of Democracy that is in the PDRK, where the choices are made before the ballot box and people only affirm the one choice they actually have?

I guess to people like you, it doesn't matter that Trump defeated, at the Ballot box, against the machine of the GOP establishment, 15 (or so) other GOP opponents, securing his nomination via a democratic process, fair and square. I guess you'd rather have Hillary, who conspired with the DNC to anoint her with a crown, over Bernie Sanders.

Perhaps we just need to have the Political Elite's just appoint our leaders for us, since we are all a "basket of deplorables" and why isn't Hillary winning by 50% ??

Soros, the Convicted Felon, who made his fortune committing fraud and currency manipulation. Which is Ironic considering how the left tends to view places like Wall Street and its traders. Also Ironic is Hillary taking millions of dollars from Wall Street, and all those former "Occupy" people are still going to vote for her.

As opposed to Hillary who believes that ONLY she can fix it, but has a far worse record of breaking everything she touches?

Sorry, but Both suck, but Hillary sucks much worse, because she has a proven track record of breaking shit, and then lying about it. "WE didn't lose anyone in Libya" (yes, she actually said that). The big difference between Hillary and Donald is that with Donald, the press won't give him the same pass that they have already proven they'll give Hillary on every gaff, mistake, foible and .... "dehydration" event that she has.
