Some sports are heavily subsidized by government (particularly football in the US). Olympics usually leaves it's host city worse off economically.

trump is playing high stakes and high risk

so it could work or it could go bust
this is exactly why the democrats should eject "safe" (read: boring) choice hillary clinton and nominate bernie sanders instead

He has more of a spine than Hillary, but I'm against him simply because of all the edgy teens that support him because he promises free college.

Wanting something for free is so edgy and original. Why hasn't anyone thought of it before?

It's not original, but so many people in my age group are metaphorically ****ing themselves over this guy because he says that all tuition will be free.

He's not a bad guy, but he's praying on the vulnerability of college students who hear "free college" and jump to his defense, regardless of who's going to be paying for all of this.

has any other major american political candidate in recent history ever proposed anything along the lines of free college?

cause if not then i'd say mr sanders is in fact being pretty edgy.

I was talking about his supporters being edgy, not Sanders himself. Wanting free **** is a very basic human instinct so it's not all that unique.
