Well, when Miami's under water soon, that will probably be more Americans killed by climate change than by terrorism.

(Only a quarter kidding.)

Overall:

Eh. Needed more metric system questions.

I'd say Americans with handguns are the greatest threat to Americans.

For democrats. Is it better to only have 2 real candidates or more competition the better?
Obviously the republicans have about 8-9 candidates left too many. And thusly, they get less air time.However, there are more options and differing views.
But with Bernie and Hillary being the only legit candidates, it gives them more air time to address more issues. However, that's all you really have: 2 options.

And those 2 options are sane, informed people interested in governing the country.

You maybe have 1 of those.

So, really, while you may have a variety of carnival barkers, grifters, hucksters, and snake oil salesmen to choose from, is that actually a choice?

You can absolutely disagree with Bernie and Hillary, or wonder how they will pay for things. But you can't say they are running around the stage screaming that the world is burning.

I think there's a happy medium that neither side has reached. The Dems should have 4-5 legit candidates to choose from at this point in the race. The GOP race is a clown car and the glut of candidates has led to a lot of sensationalist comments made purely to stand out in a packed crowd. They would make ignorant comments anyway, but there's genuine motive for it now. It's brought out the worst in everyone (except Kasich, who actively went the opposite route and it bit him in the ass; he needs a red rubber nose if he wants to stay with the pack).

As for the debate, I think we should start getting used to the phrase Madame President.

The human heart is the biggest threat imo. Everyone's out looking for arabs, but then they end up dead on the floor from a heart attack. Heart disease kills millions of people every year. And with McDonalds all day breakfast, that number will most likely increase in the near future.
However, with issues we can semi-control.......
May sound crazy, but safer US road systems would make a massive difference. I was in Dubai recently and was blown away by how much safer their road systems are. But of course, that would be extremely expensive and time consuming. We've dug ourselves in a massive hole there due to poor planning.

Psychopaths with weapons, whether it be guns, knives, vehicles, etc, is certainly a massive threat to our safety and well-being as a nation.
I'm personally pretty torn on guns. The biggest problem is psychopaths, but there needs to be some kind of background check. If there's someone with serious mental illness, I would feel nervous if they had a gun in my presence.
And I certainly sympathize with many who've been affected by gun violence and want some kind of reform. But at the same time, I'm a gun owner and have many friends in that industry. So I'm very torn on it.

I agree. Fiorina has it in the bag.

At the risk of sounding like a gay stereotype, I'd pay money to watch a one-on-one Carly vs Hillary debate.

I'm not totally in love with any candidate running.
On the democrats side, I'm just about the opposite of Sanders on everything with maybe the exception of some foreign policy and drug issues.
I would never vote for Hillary. Ever.

On the republicans side, the 2 strongest and most rational candidates are 9th and 10th in the polls. Rand Paul and John Kasich.
God gave the republicans Ron Paul for 22 years and they never gave him a chance. Largely in part to people like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, uninformed people, etc.
I know Ron Paul is largely disliked on this forum, but I'm a huge fan of his and always will be. You may not agree with everything he said, but he was sincere and truly sought the best for people. He wasn't a slimy politician like John McCain or Carly Fiorina.

Lincoln Chafee is a disaster and never should've been up there to begin with.

Jim Webb lost his chance by bitching about not getting enough time (every time he spoke).

Bernie is going to get exposed real soon for his hand waving. He's doing the same shit Trump does. "It's going to be great."

Hillary is the candidate to beat.

I guess that leaves Martin O'Malley, who was downright solid today.

You just picked on two people who aren't slimy politicians. McCain is a reasonable person who has demonstrated legitimate heart. Carly Fiorina isn't even a politician, and she sure as hell isn't slimy.

I had never heard the name Lincoln Chafee before tonight. Sounds like a car....or a disease.
I'd be interested to see if 'ole Joe tosses his hat in the ring. He's quality entertainment. And for democrats, he fairs decent vs. Republicans.

McCain is as slimy as they get. Screw him. He's done nothing to help the veterans of this country, even though he is one himself!
Fiorina is the non politician politician. Her debate tactics are very slimy. She likes to grab people's emotions and not with facts.
