For the first time, we will get to see the level of stupidity in America measured as a percentage. Donald Trump is the Republican nominee, unless some serious stuff goes down at the RNC. I still can't quite believe that. Genuinely hoping that Trump can be contained to just the hardline Republican side, and that anyone with a brain will go Democrat in November. I may not live in America or agree with all of it's policies, but no one wants it turned super authoritarian.

So you think Ted Cruz would've been better?

Honestly, I think Cruz's brand of right wing nationalist theocracy is as distasteful as Trump's blithering idiocy, but at least I could kid myself into thinking there'd be someone at least somewhat competent in charge, where as Trump being president is like handing control of a cruise ship to an easily distracted 9 year old.

Either way, I'd still rather the Democrats win than the Republicans, even if I'd rather Sanders than Clinton.
