    From your own political standpoints, which candidate do you feel our country could benefit from? Based on both conscientious reasoning as well as their competence to be adequately knowledgeable within the crisis that is going on within our own country and solutions they might offer to fix it.

      I would choose Bernie Sanders from the Democrats side and George Pataki from the GOP. Hillary is just as vague as Trump when it comes to the issues.

    I agree with you on the aspect that neither Trump nor Clinton would make advantageous candidates. It is falsely assumed that Trump would do exceptionally well because of his self-made billionaire status and his general capability to run a business. But running the country as a business would not fix all of the currently existing problems within the US. Most people in support of Clinton, simply want to create history by electing our first woman president. But what they don't realize, is that there is plenty of time to create history..and prospectively there will likely be more proficient candidates in the future. We made the very same mistake trying to "make history" electing Barack Obama and he hasn't exactly done anything to benefit our countries population as a whole. He certainly has budged in any form of action to try and even slightly eliminate our countries debts. Why make the same mistake twice? Because history repeats itself.
