I agree that third party candidates will likely do better this year than they have in previous years. Unfortunately, they won't do well enough to win. It would be nice, though.
I happen to agree with you about Hillary - I don't see her as being any less trustworthy than any other candidate who has ran for that office; and people who are voting for her just to keep Trump from getting in also have GOOD reason for doing so.
what change? its back to bush/reagan/bush. same old bs republican policies . more war, less rights, more give aways to the rich. trump is no change. trump is anti abortion, anti immigrant and pro trickle down. same old ruinous crap.
Why are you even bringing up Bernie Sanders? He has left the building. At least that many people have expressed fear of Trump's finger on the nuclear button. I don't like her immigration policy, but Trump has already alienated most of our friends.
First, I disagree that Trump is more of the same; if nothing else, he is different. About Sanders, people choosing Clinton over him even though he is of much better character proves my point about fear of change/pro-Establishment in Clinton voters.
Trump's character??? He's a character all right.
The only people that vote trump are the people that still want hate to continue in this society. I am sorry but the dude is a straight up racist if you ask me. He Anti-women too the way he's talking. He does nothing but talk to hear himself.
This is one reason I find it difficult to support Democrats: they can't accept that some things aren't about race, gender, etc. This worldview is divisive and I don't see how we can progress as a society when looking at every issue through this lens.

That is a cool answer. Straight down party dogma and doctrine lines. Refreshingly bold. Seems everyone nowadays is claiming to vote regardless of party. You are pure old school.
I vote based on my core beliefs. Trump offers nothing I believe in...and I mean nothing!
Eric, is that a straight answer or sarcasm? Seriously, I can't tell. I admire Dennis for his honesty.
You need to look up the textbook definition of Fascism.
I know the definition of a Fascist. Check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascism They believe that liberal democracy is obsolete. Fascists adhere to a philosophy of radical authoritarian nationalism. This sounds like Trump to me.
I agree 100%. Hilary has managed to survive a half billion dollar slander campaign against her. Considering all the crap thrown her direction she is doing pretty good. Trump is one scary egocentric liar. I can't believe people turn a blind eye to it.
P. T. Barnum said it best, "There's a sucker born every minute."
Yes Eric, and they are called Democrats.
Okay. So now that you've looked up the definition of Fascism, has Trump declared the liberal democracy is obsolete and that society must mobilize under a totalitarian one-party state? If you're going to say yes, then cite sources.
Totalitarian regimes believe in controlled mass media, personality cultism, political repression, use of terror, and restriction of speech. Trump only uses FOX, spits out slogans to incite his followers, and endorses torture. He is a rich bully.
It was a yes or no question: has Trump declared that liberal democracy is obsolete and that society must mobilize under a totalitarian one-party state? And no, Trump only using FOX (not true, by the way) and using slogans are not evidence of Fascism.
I refuse to allow you to control the ebb and flow of information here. Trump is a fascist who subscribes to a totalitarian ideology. The bottom line is knowing, with relief, that he will never become president of this country.
Control the ebb and flow of information!? What you're really refusing to do is provide a direct answer to a yes or no question. I take that to mean the answer to my question is no, Trump has not advocated for a totalitarian one-party state .
We have a lousy choice this year. The only effective way to vote against Trump is to vote for Clinton. A vote for a third party candidate might result in a Trump presidency.
Thank you. I'm so tired of the assumption that we have two bad choices. Not only do I think Hillary is a good candidate, I believe she will be an exceptional president. The intelligence reminiscent of her husband without the soap opera.

Thank you! Enough with the emails if you ask me she stated her claim and they found nothing when they investigated, I wish people would let it go.

So we are to blame because not enough people voted for the right Prime Minister? You have to get your people out to vote. I tell you a secret some people here do not vote my friend they just have an opinion and then when the wrong person wins lol.
I think big political dissension began when some bright birds in Washington allowed our factories and our jobs to be sent overseas. Now it's a tug o' war between the haves and the have nots with the middle class shrinking and fingers pointing.

Apparently there weren't enough of them or Bernie would be the Dem's nominee.

You're right. What 'we the people' want and need is change in our government and the people aren't going to see that she isn't going to change a thing. Trump is at least advocating change. We, I, thought Obama would be a one term president too. Yuk.
I have an extremely hard time trusting anyone who has filed bankruptcy SIX times. You realize whenever anyone files bankruptcy, the TAXPAYERS pick up the bill???
I have a problem with someone that was flat broke 16 years ago and now she is a multi-millionaire. A lot of that money came from taxpayers too.
Trump is the Bernie Madoff of presidential candidates.

They are voting the wrong way for change and peace if they are voting for Hillary.
We also need Hillary when it comes to nominating the next Supreme Court justice. We definitely don't want any of Trump's economic plans or the bloated debt that will occur with his deportation policy and stupid wall.
Vote Hilary instead of Trump because we are trying to reduce Hate not spread it like he has been doing every time he talks. He's making enemies all over the map. Mexico's President just told him what he could do with his wall lol.
