    This is the second time Assange has come out saying he is going to release some game changing leaks about Hillary.

    I hope it's actually as significant as he says it is. He's been really building this up compared to some of his previous leaks. If it just turns out to be a video of Hillary telling dead baby jokes to a friend of college I'm going to be massively disappointed.

    Trump supporters are getting desperate. They're also making up stories about Clinton's health even though we know nothing about Trump's health other than what was written in a vague letter that doesn't sound like it was written by a doctor or anyone with medical training.

    Then there's that saying? Fool me twice, something?

    I hope so too, but we'll have to see. If Assange doesn't deliver, this is pretty much the end of anyone ever listening to him ever again.

    And I don't think it's anything about her health. As non-sad as I'd be if Clinton dropped dead, I don't buy it that she's that poorly off.

    Yeah, it makes you wonder. Why can't Trump just get a legit doctor to write him a letter?

    Wow! You would be non-sad if Clinton dropped dead? As much as I dislike Trump, I wouldn't feel good about him dropping dead. :smile:

    I wouldn't be sad about that either, to be honest.

    He's already lost a lot of influence. His penchant for personal vendettas is well known and not even in dispute.

    To be fair, there have been leaks that I feel were just. I think the Snowden leak was incredibly important because it involved unconstitutional invasions of privacy rising to the level of some foil-hat conspiracy theory proportions.

    But whether you love or hate Hillary or Trump the way he's going about this comes off less like a public service and more like a lunatic who stole some launch codes and wants to watch stuff explode.

    I'd be really surprised if it was about her health. It's probably about the Clinton Foundation. There again though, if the foundation accepted a donation from one of the bin Ladens of Saudi Arabia that's just rage porn. If he has some emails where Bill admits that he sold presidential pardons that is something any objective person, regardless of their leanings, would probably take issue with it.

    Assange could release videos of Hillary Clinton torturing Bassett Hound puppies to death, then eating the dead carcasses, and it wouldn't matter a bit to most of her supporters. They'd say that sometimes puppies have to die in order to achieve social justice, or some other bizarre rationalization.

    This is so true! For the life of me, I can't understand why any sentient person on this planet would support her. I'm no Trump fan, but Hillary is quite possibly the most corrupt candidate ever for the office.

    Coming from Trump's own mouth, his supporters are already at this level. He was the one who said he could shoot someone and not lose any support. Trump was sued more than once for housing discrimination. He admitted no wrongdoing, but settled out of court. An investigation found that applications were marked with a "C" to denote that the applicant was "colored." If Assange really cared about transparency, he would be looking into both sides. There is no reason why Trump can't release tax returns from the years that aren't being audited. For the life of me, I can't see how any person with morals can support a person with a history of being unapologetically racist and sexist.

    By the way, Trump's doctor admitted that he wrote Trump's health letter in five minutes while a limo was outside waiting.

    And as usual, both major party candidates' supporters are criticizing the other major party candidates and supporters without bothering to be particularly introspective.

    Trump must have really bad health. The doctor's letter said "Mr. Trump has had a recent complete medical examination that showed only positive results."

    Well done! That has to be one of the funniest lines I've read here in an eon, Ian.

    Supporters of third party candidates think they're different, but they really aren't.

    Plenty of Libertarian Party members are highly critical of Gary Johnson and Bill Weld, some of the purists are encouraging other libertarians not to vote for them because they're too compromising. The comparison is stark with the uncritical BS shat out by the likes of Occupy Democrats.

    You obviously don't know many Democrats if you don't think many of them are critical of Clinton. By the way, I have no party affiliation and don't think highly of the concept of political parties, period. As someone who has no party affiliation, I see the commonalities between all of those who do.

    It doesn't matter what other Libertarians are doing. I haven't seen you be critical of Gary Johnson on here. Maybe you have no criticisms; maybe you've aired them somewhere else. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt you don't afford others. I, on the other hand, have been critical of Clinton on here and have shown support for the Stein and Johnson campaigns, but I'm an independent.
