People want someone that irresponsible, full of racism and bs running a country?
Americas already in bad enough debt!

What happened to world peace?
Responsibility & Dignity importance?


Edit: Truly disappointing how racist most of these forum posts are.

Obama has raised our national debt to 20 trillion dollars. Hillary represents more of Obama's policies, only worse. You don't think our National debt will not increase? Why would you vote for someone who is going to increase our national debt?

Most of the time I think it's 'because he's not Hillary.'

So instead have the dude who ducks out of his debts through bankruptcy? Do you not think Trump's tax cuts and wall project won't increase the debt?

People want a felon, traitor, racketeer, money landerer, and child trafficker in office?


4 bankruptcies out of what 270+ businesses ran sounds just so horrible in comparison.

Actually, Trump has never personally filed for bankruptcy. Those four bankruptcies were filed for different companies that he owned. Something to note is that bankruptcy is not necessarily a bad thing. In many cases it is a good way of being able to cut massive overhead from a company, get rid of wasteful policies, and streamline the business so it can make a comeback. Hostess is a great example of this.

Mathematically, Trump's economic plan would raise our national debt as well (so will Clinton's own stance on the economy). Trump would allow for citizens to have a higher take-home pay in the short-term. However, the long-term would be that our national debt would skyrocket from his so-called plans to increase spending on the military (which is already 52% of our budget as it is) and taking care of our vets (whereas our Department of Veteran's Affairs gets around $70b per year already).

Do you honestly think that Trump will lower our national debt? To summarize his plans for the economy (in a very wide generalization, admittedly) it would be:

"I want to raise how much we spend on key programs that are already getting a high amount of our budget, while at the same time making sure we obtain less money from the citizens and businesses. But hey, I can rely on all of these foreign governments that we already have outstanding debts to give us additional money because I will threaten to kill our trade treaties otherwise."

It's a short-term plan that would alleviate things in the immediate future; however, it would cause bankruptcy in the end. This is the Trump Way™

The same can be said for Clinton's economic plan as well, though. It's just that it'll be painful in the short-term and alleviate some of the long-term debt (which is what Obama has been aiming to do so far). It really depends on the greed factor - "Do I want all of my money now or make sure that we don't run this country to the ground in another 50-90 years, after I'm long gone or too crazy to scare?"

I would vote for a dead yak over Hillary. At least I feel like Trump is showing who he really is. Hillary is a fake faker who is faking out a lot of people.

That's a good one.

We don't need a president, we need a group of individuals dedicated to their craft to come together to find the best possible solution for everything, economic, medical, safety, transportation, trade, etc.

Honestly enough Bullshit. Someone is going to win tomorrow, and if you don't like it, tough shit. Unless everyone wants to take a stand, there is nothing we can do about it.

People have been in debt the moment we created trade and currency, so what the fuck does it matter when someone files for bankruptcy? At least he's got the balls to stand up and speak about something, no matter how wrong it may be, he doesn't give a dam, he has money, and that's all anyone ever cared about when it comes to running a country.

Please say I'm wrong, I dare ya.

They're both going to increase our national debt, they are both going to be responsible for loss of life (domestic or abroad), they are both liars. When they have all that in common, all I can do is look at the little details, and Trump is a racist misogynist who picked one of the most homophobic people in US politics to be his VP. So #IGuessImWithHer.

That said, I didn't like her enough to pay the postage and printing fees on an overseas ballot. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I think this has a lot to do with it, IMO each party picked really unfavorable candidates. I think if either party had someone else, they''d be way ahead of Hillary/Trump. Some people who aren't voting 3rd party are just going to vote for either Hillary or Trump simply because their not the other person.

Filing bankruptcy is often a strategical move for business, but no one cares. Just listen to the biased media that wants you to think a man with a lot of money that has had great success is somehow a bad businessman. They said so, so it's probably true.
