My same response the last time you said that as though you had absolute authority and knowledge on the issue:

I'd like to see your PhD of Medicine and Psychology, College of Surgeons and Physicians membership, license to practice psychiatry, and proof that you are the White House psychiatric consultant. Otherwise, such proclamations, which may or may not be true, are however garbage, because you have no way to know for sure.

I'm not surprised with a group as powerful as the drug lobby on their side It would be a shock if the yes camp did succeed.

All the same for you.

I've made no firm statement either way. I just believe that, if it were the case, elected officials should have an inherent disqualifier from their duties if mental health can be shown to be a detriment - a disqualifier that does that actually exist. I've made no absolute claims that I KNOW Trump's mental health situation in definite terms, like @Presidentinsertname has. That's the big difference there.

Drug lobbies on both sides. If anything more on the yes side. That's what made it controversial

I think lobby groups need their political power neutered. They often wield more influence over politicians than said politicians' own constituents, routinely even successfully getting them to act against their constituents' wishes. And they churn out tonnes of misleading and even outright deceitful and false statistics and advertising - things a corporation would get fined for if using it in an ad to sell products or services. Lobby groups are a bane and cancerous sore on the electoral system that should receive a remedy.

Really? I'd be surprised if such a group would back an initiative that might cut into their profit margin.

I totally agree it is almost oligarchical the power these special interest groups and lobbies have on our supposedly democratic system.

1. He's lying, he has a history of lacking integrity. He tried cheating people who tried writing in Bernie Sanders ask anyone here.

2. Agreed
