Macron has my full endorsement.

Macron is a Clintonista ex-banker created by a media campaign similar to Obama's who endorsed him

Le Pen is against the EU and wants to reinstate borders, wants to work with Putin and Trump to destroy ISIS

Why is Le Pen so evil now? Because of her father?

This Macron guy is apparently married to a teacher 25 years his senior that he started a relationship with when he was a 15 year old student of hers, at the time Trogneux was a married mother of 3 and Macron's parents disapproved of the relationship. That's pretty shocking I think, France is different I guess but I don't think there is any way that would be tolerated the other way around with a male teacher going after a female student, you have just the ethics problem between teacher and student but he was also underaged.

Macron expected to crush Le Pen in the final round. The more I hear of Macron the more I like him.

Le Pen is just odd. Spends so much of her time ranting about Muslims, says she will close down all mosques, close the borders etc yet is economically very much a lefty. I think all the daily frothing at the mouth she does has frazzled her brain.

What could one like about Macron? Just that he's not Le Pen? I don't understand it. A 39 year old "centrist" ex-banker with no experience, yeah he will be really running things won't he? The globalist banking junta will never accept defeat. At least Fillon and Melenchon stood for something, Macron is like begging the IMF to rule over your country. I guess this is the place that wanted to elect Dominique Strauss-Kahn so I shouldn't be surprised.

You can't understand in what way she is evil, as you clearly can't understand how bigotry mixed with nationalism can lead to evil.

She wear that flag, and yet don't understand it's meaning. The colors are to represent "equality, liberty and fraternity" (Don't which color is which), yet she want to crush those ideas.

She's come from a "nationalist socialism" if you know what I mean.

Le Pen is a national republican, not a national socialist. Here are a couple of national socialists for comparison:

So from the "Cafe Americain," I salute Madame Le Pen and wish her campaign well:

Melenchon refuses to back Macron in the final round which will give Le Pen heart that she will pick up his votes.

I am not an expert on France but it would not surprise me if despite all the polls, predictions and otherwise she wins. There will probably be more big attacks and that will help her.

The effect of the San Bernardino and Orlando attacks on the US election is not talked about enough. It turned the immigration issue from a jobs and prejudice issue to a national security, jobs, and prejudice issue.

CNN has reported how Putin is planning to sabotage Macron with his army of hacker cutouts, just as he had done in our last Presidential election.

Yet she belongs to a party that promotes Antisemitism and Holocaust denial. Sounds like at least a closet Nazi to me.
