I am conducting my own little poll here of sorts, as I am just curious who would you trust to defend our country against our enemies and why - Hillary or Trump?
sort by best latest
Bless you, dear Eric! I agree 100% with you, and thank you for zeroing in on the question posed with your answer dealing with defense and our obvious enemies. I'm upset someone chose best answer here, and it wasn't me! Trying to get it remedied ...
Hi Jill, Wow, you've presented excellent points to consider about both candidates, coupled with specific past actions to help bring your points home. Thank you so much for an insightful answer. Wonder what are the odds of them both falling off ..
President Clinton is the one who banned assault weapons when in office. GW Bush let that ban expire when in office.
What part of the comment are you responding to, Shyron?
I agree, you could sum this year up as a giant L for not only the American public, but as you said Jill, the world. The US is by far the most popular nation in the earth, and to say that our next president won't affect billions would be a lie.
Yes, our next choice for President will have a global impact for sure, one way or the other.
Consider this Jill - The legislature, the national legislature in Honduras & national judiciary ACTUALLY FOLLOWED THE LAW in removing President Zelaya. IF, it was incorrectly declared a coup; all aid would b cut off 2 poor. Is that ur solution
What Richard Dreyfuss said - "Trump is an intemperate, mean-spirited, lying bully. If a man like that asked you for permission to marry your daughter, what would your answer be? If it’s no, I think it’s obvious we shouldn’t give him the most power
Hi everyone, thank you for continuing to participate in this question, which seems to be a topic which all are passionate about one way or the other. Team HubPages corrected the problem with Best answer being chosen when I did not choose it, so I can
That is really cool that you got them to correct that glitch. I am sure it was your charm and patience and persistence.
That is cool, Eric! Lol about the charm and patience on my part, because it may have be lacking a bit ...waiting at hospital this morning...hubby having cataract surgery. God bless
Bill, so glad you've weighed in here and reminded us of our third choice! You're right, we can survive no matter what, being how our government is set up. I hate politics too; always have. Ironically, I work in the area of fighting public corruption.
Nixon was a better president than most people know. I am personally offended that 99.9% of the public does not realize exactly how much he accomplished. http://listverse.com/2013/11/08/10-reasons-richard...
Savvydating, if you notice, anytime someone messes up and accomplishments they may have an no matter how important those accomplishments were, they are rendered irrelevant as if they had never been.
America has survived many administrations that have been disasters(eg. BO) but is that all we want America to be?To just survive?Thinking people are fed up with the idea a country's hope is to survive,we want our country to thrive!
Hi Dont' Taze Me ...Good point about not just surviving but thriving! Yes, hopefully we all want to thrive.
You are so right. Every time it is said we won't survive this president or the other the country has proven it wrong.
Neither has served in the armed forces. The answer, then, is simple. Neither!
I, too, trust neither -- I'm planning on writing in Bob Menendez (for Prez) and Artur Davis (for VEEP). Join me????? ;-)
Hi Everyone and Lydia Penn, I'm sorry but I did NOT choose a BEST answer to this question! Don't know how that happened unless it was via my phone by accident. Please repost your answer Lydia. I will check with HP why it shows I chose best answer?
I am reaching the point of seconding Bill's comment. Neither one has actual military experience, while Gary Johnson and his running mate have been responsible for their states' national guard units and may have even more military experience.
Yves & C.E. U have both hit on something so profoundly accurate! Follow every rule, do good, be heroic & charitable 4 YEARS. Screw up once or twice & UR a BUM which shall be UR legacy. This says the very most about all of US! Go figure.
Hi Paula, thank you for continuing to participate. Once again BEST answer was chosen when I did NOT chose it. HP removed the other answer, and so I will email them once again. How does this keep happening? It is growing wearisome!
Hmm, I never thought about it that way. Now that you mention it, it is very plausible. I can only hope that's true.
Wow, Genna, you've presented a lot of great insight here into the mindset of Trump and his possible motives. Sounds like you do know a lot about him. You're right about the irony of the question even having to be posed.
I have raised similar thoughts to friends of mine. Wondering if this isn't a ruse to create the ultimate game show, so you wanna be President.....
We've had those discussions as well in our household, but the one factor about Trump's ego is he hates to lose. So his running just to stir the pot, I'm not so sure.
Now THIS is a great critical analysis of Trump that I can believe/accept. So much better than the irrational and unreasonable 'he's the next Hitler, he is evil' type of rants so many like to type with such fervor. Unfortunately the alternative is j
Hi Ken. I purposely didn't address what Trump says regarding his "rants" toward others. They are a matter of public record, and do not need to be defined by me.
No, he is running ,he has guts to tell America what most politicians seeking for votes will never tell them.The Politicians normally- hide , seek and tell the public lies while campaigning. He is bold,he has told America and the world the truth.
He has guts, all right, and "telling it like it is" is fine and refreshing, BUT ONLY if what he is saying is the truth, and most of it IS NOT. "Obama Founded ISIS"???
Ken - Understand Hitler's personality & HOW Hitler came 2 power & what he
Hi Everyone, I realize I should have posted a forum rather than a question to allow for more discussion. Thank you for your continued participation here.
Obama and Hillary are the founders of ISIS, without their policies ISIS would not exist. Trump is right, because em ignores the facts, that doesn't make Trump a liar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WI4DBv_6Vzw
Really Donald Trump didn't vote to ATTACK and INVADE Iraq, but HRC did it.
Stop drinking the Koolaid, drink some water there is a heat wave.
The only reason Trump didn't vote to invade Iraq is because he wasn't a member of Congress at the time. Technically, if you read what really happened, no one, Democrat or Republican, voted to invade Iraq. Shrub LIED about that.
And that is the point, and why he is better than those that were in and made so many mistakes. Everyone is a liar to you except HRC.
Hi NMLady, Yikes, let's pray that never happens! Hopefully, when it comes to such an important issue as protecting our country from those who would harm us and desire to take away our freedoms, the person would make sound and wise decisions.
Trump is smart enough to surround himself with people who know what they are doing to make the decisions where Hillary has told us she will use her pen just like Obama. I am so sick of that. We have laws, for a reason!
BradBOT: Trump didn't vote because he was never in gov't - Use some imagination and give me a guess what he would do if he was.
Brad's favorite mantra is "stop drinking the Koolaid" when he can't find a way to explain his belief in Rush Limbaugh, et al's propaganda. That must be where he got the phrase.
pstosis You people can't make cogent arguments, so you malign.
Yes, Trump was not in government, as everyone in government didn't do the right thing. So this is Trumps advantage. Did you get it that time?
I would say Hillary Clinton. And I might add, a lot of Republicans that served under Reagan and Bush admin seem to agree. Sure she has made mistakes who hasn't. With Iraq, only a few voted not to move on Iraq. So the blame should be with Congress
I'm sorry but I have to laugh at the thought that he surrounds himself with who know what they are doing, because they've done such a great job handling him now. Didn't he just fire another one of his lackeys?
NMLady - Oh dear. You have really been brainwashed by the left. I guess Hillary's strategy has worked. Also, WWIII has already started. Obama has been participating in it for the last 8 years.
Hi MizB, thank you for answering and sharing your perspective. Yes, there is much to think on with both candidates for sure as relates to this important issue that faces our Nation and the free world too.
Since US policies are guided by corporate leadership how the electorate behave once elected to office is dependant uponthe instructions of corporate leadership.
Even the thought that someone like Donald Trump COULD get into your nation's highest office is an indication how sick the USA has become over the past few years.
I don't think Trump is as hated in other countries as you think. Except of course you have data to prove it.
You're right. Russia loves him, in fact, he says that he and Putin are "buddies". Could that have anything to do with the recent Wikileaks against the Demos? Why always the Demos? I smell a rat.
While I am certain #LyinTrump is not in cahoots with Putin, it is clearly in Putin's interest to help Trump get elected since some of their goals are the same ... like destroying NATO.
Esoteric: I agree. Both Putin and ISIS want Trump to win the Presidential election. What does that tell us? And ISIS longs to fight our boots on the ground in the ME. Never give your enemy what he wants.
Also, if you read Hitler's Mein Kampf backwards, it says "I want Trump to win the election". And, in the Satanic Bible, there's spell that invokes a Trump election win if you sacrifice the soul of a true-born Democrat to Beelzebub.
Diplomacy with ISIS ? Let me know how that works out for you.
I'm sorry everyone, but I did not choose "Best" answer yet, and do not understand why it was chosen, as I did not choose it! Lydia Penn please repost your answer as I want it to remain. Will check with HP as to what happened?
My Esoteric, Trump claimed to be "buddies" with Putin. I was just quoting the words out of his own mouth. Perhaps Putin disagrees and just wants to use him, but there is a relationship. Perhaps one-sided.
Hi MizB, Just an FYI that Team HubPages removed the Best answer that I did not choose once again. I'm so relieved. Thank you to all for continuing to participate here!
She just says whatever is politically correct, Trump isn't afraid to say what's on his mind at all. All Hillary gives us the American people is lies with everything filtered through meaningless political correct garbage language that means nothing.
Hillary ASKED for more security in Benghazi, & the GOP said NO!!! In the investigation committee could find that she din NOTHING WRONG. Watch the hearings http://time.com/4084578/benghazi-hearing-hillary-c...
This is incorrect Sharon. http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statements/201...
Hi Rachael, thank you for answering. We all do need to make sure we understand the track record for sure. I will confess I can't take any more of the political correctness mess.
Hillary has a track record alright, of lies, scandals and crimes all of which attest to the opposite of everything she claims to be, and just like Shyron her followers believe and spread the lies and propaganda the media shills for HRC.
But I'm sure you and millions of Americans who feel the same way will vote anyway, which is most remarkable.
Hi Ronnie! Yes, the New World Order will eventually triumph - sort of. It will have it's period of 'victory' until the return of Christ - then it's all done my friend.
And the sad thing is, Obama isn't as smart as either of them, he thinks he is, but without that teleprompter he'd sound more idiotic than Trump (and has when he has gone without it) ... long time since we had a JFK or Reagan who were great orators an
Obummer is a lousy president. And I'm tired of voting for the least lousy candidate. This time around it's simply intolerable.
Wow, Hxprof, thank you for your passionate answer to this perplexing issue we are facing here. A lot to think on and pray about for sure!
"Hi" does not answer the question posed here. If you would like to participate here, please answer. I will have to delete your comment because "Hi" is not an answer. I'm sorry.
Thank you, Blake, That certainly seems to be the case, sadly ...but what can we do if there are no other candidates?
Good question. True, it's far easier to spot the flaw than it is to give a solid solution. Personally, we need to dissolve the two part system and the electoral college.
Yes, I think our actual vote should count.
Hahaha OK, hglick, Thank you for your short but to the point answer.
Exactly, Paula! I intentionally used the word, "Trust," for that very reason, for we need to be able to trust the President to lead us in a manner that is best for the citizens of our great country, but I just don't know?
Oops!! UPDATE!! According to Comey, I guess we can TRUST just about any Tom, Dick or Harry off the streets. Their ability to defend us against our enemies will ALL be based on their INTENT! Relax America. We're safe. Right???
Right? Big Oops there, Paula! Good grief Charlie Brown ...
Yes, we're safe ...NOT!
Wow, Team Wiseman, You've stated a lot here in your sharing of your concerns for our freedoms and our Nation. This election is scary indeed. Jesus is my savior, so He is all I need.
Hi dashingscorpio, Yes, for sure ... that is a must in my mind too to have intelligent military commanders in the cabinet. A wise person surrounds himself with intelligent people! Let's hope that will be the case . I appreciate you answering.
OK, you would most likely not have good advisors or won't listen to them? I figure Trump would continue on without advice from others
Hillary over Trump, Really!
Hi Rob, thank you for participating. Well, that certainly is one way to put it ...
Really now, now that he has proven himself in league with Putin to hack into Hillary's email you still trust him? Russia is scary, I've been there. I don't think you would like being under the KGB.
Hi MizB, I know I sure wouldn't want to be under the KGB!
Hi Leslie, prayer for our Nation is certainly needed. When we've asked God to leave our schools and everything else, then He will. Thank you dear Leslie.
Hi Vince, Thank you for answering and offering an explanation why you choose Trump. You have prented a lot of good points here. Yes, the politically correct aspect of it all does concern me and I am so tired of it to be honest.
Hi myth, Yes, that is a good point about Trump never having been in politics, which may very well be what we need, possibly ...not the same ole, same ole ...Interesting answer here.
It is professional politicians that have caused the decline of the US since the 70s. The US history proves that neither party has the solution and both parties contrib to the problem. A non political candidate is the only way to brk out of the decl
Hi Brad, thanks for participating here. I wanted to let you know that HP fixed the problem of "Best" answer being chosen, not by me, and removed it and so I can choose it when I so desire. I hope many continue to answer and participate here.
Hi Mary, well, that would be a good reason to vote against her if that is her true intent...
Hi Rob, Yes, my candidate of choice is not represented in either of these either, but you've pointed out something to ponder in their choice of Vice President. That is a little bit of hope indeed ... Yes, God Bless America!
Hi Matt, Welcome to HubPages. Well, this is not a hub, but just a question. There are forums too. Hubs are articles members write on various topics. Thanks for participating in the question posed. I do understand your humor : )
I appreciate it! I'm still trying to figure this out. It's definitely interesting.
Hi Matt, you write well and should do just fine on HP.
Wow, Jason, you've certainly explained yourself well for your reasons behind choosing Trump, as well as balancing that with why you would not choose Hillary.
Hillary is merely a product of the secular humanistic idolatry she promotes. An idolatry that the replaces God with what they can achieve through an empowered government.
"Many people support Hilary for her experience. What experience, may I ask?" - She's been on CNN more than any other politician. That's probably the extent of their reasoning.
Jason you can add Trump doesn't take his marching orders from Soros! Here is proof Hillary does! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkE2X6kWhvc
How has Hillary defended our country against our enemies. You mean like her and Bill did in the Vietnam War?
Hi Sandra, thank you for sticking to the actual question posed here and providing your reasons for choosing Hillary.
Bill was a draft dodger. And sold our jobs to Nafta...
I'm for REAL CHANGE - neither Hillary Nor Trump stand on REAL CHANGE. They both stick to an outdated system that has proven to be obsolete. It's Time Humanity learns to THRIVE. I'm With Jill....
Bernie should join Jill. Thrivalilsm
Hello Ken, I appreciate you answering in such detail as to why you believe your choice for President is best to lead our country in these areas especially.
Hahaha, You know, Eric, I've seriously thought about writing someone in too, but just not Batman ...I love your strajghtforwardness here in your answer. That's what I'm saying ...these two are it?
Eric, I completely understand your hesitation in fully supporting Hillary. After 25 years of the incessant repeated character assassination of Hillary, its no wonder many people are confused. Hillary is not corrupt nor a liar. She is a pro...Do vote!
Thanks Kerry, for offering your perspective. Seems politics is her whole life for decades and one would think it would grow tiring, but I guess not for her. Maybe some think it is time for someone new as she has had her time?
Hmm, I have doubts about Batman, Eric. I much prefer Spiderman. He scales buildings & captures bad guys in his webs. C'mon, Batman, (Bruce Wayne) is just another rich kid who drives a fast car. Besides, he hangs w/ that kid, Robin! Wise up Eric!
lol "I'll pick Hillary.Let's face it she's corrupt, a liar, and shady as hell...What politician isn't?"
Only Trump is not a politician so there goes your reasoning, illogical but I admit, an hilarious thought.
Hi there, Louisiana Hot Wire, I appreciate your participation here.
Hello Rohan, Thank you for offering your perspective being a non-american. I appreciate you for taking the time to answer here.
If we were to come to the view that " power corrupt and that absolute power corrupt absolutely" (CW) we would have realized that US is in need of a peaceful leader. But since US policies are guided by corporate leadership how the electorate behave
Lobbyists seem to have a lot of pull with many political figures ...$$$
Exactly! No promotion of the other candidate, but simply acknowledging that "our" best interests will come in a far second to Trump's already vested interests.
Hi John, thank you for answering. Yes, we must attempt to try to understand the motives of each candidate.
Hi whonu, you're so right and thank you for that reminder of the President's job is that of leadership. We do need a very strong military and a President who will support one. You're so right about a strong faith and trusting in God.
I would say a better choice of word is not to defend our country but rather to lead our country. The supposition is such that a good leader would try his or her best to avoid unnecessary conflict. Thus, the urge to defend America against foreign
Good point there, James, about using the word lead as opposed to defend.
Hi Gracie, yes, exactly, those are our enemies in my mind. You've pointed out the main thing in my mind that is concerning about Hillary is that she seems to be too afraid to say who are the real enemies for some reason ... Thank you for answering.
Hi Craig, thank you for answering. Yes, seems the Veterans do support him. There's no reason all those people had to die there; no reason at all. We had a team right there ready to go in ...and nothing. Sad day!
Hi kwade, Yes, the question is posed as if one will vote for one or the other; that is true. You've expressed important concerns about each candidate for sure. You're the first to mention about my choice of photos and why. Very observant of you!
kwade don't you think that your vote should be considering what is at stake beyond the personalities and character of these two?We know Hillary will appt liberal judges,Trump won't.More than character their policies are up for vote.
The prob, DTMB, is that Trump has talked like a Democrat for all his adult life. Google a short youtube vid Trump Tapes Volume 1 . Dubya and Schwrtznggr in CA campaigned like Consrvtvs but then reigned like Libs. DON'T TRUST REPS AND DEMS. THEY LIE!
I can't disagree with u nudely, but Reagan was a democrat most of his life before he became a republican.People can change,Trump was never in public service as a democrat.It seems he changed because he could see that liberalism has failed.
Reagan was no paragon of virtue as Repblcn... big deficit spender, amnesty, breaking promise (i.e. LIED) not to negotiate with Iran, etc. but DID lower tax rates which brought in more revenue... mixed bag there. Not my idol, but better than most.
I never said Reagan was a paragon of virtue,did I?Why did you change the subject from the fact a democrat or Trump can (many have) wake up and become a republican to Reagan's record?Is it because I am right & u don't want to admit it? :)
You implied Reagan changed. My point was he didn't. OK, he was a D and then changed to R, but he acted like a D in most of his actions, and like an R in few. I DO NOT TRUST Trump to good example of R. Seems now he wants amnesty 4 illegals. Vot4Johnsn
For u to liken Reagan's policies to democrats is a complete&utter joke.His motivation for his policies&the results are directly opposite of the motivation&results of democrat policies.Not room here to explain,ur jst reciting dem talking p
Hi Shyron, Thank you for answering and sharing your perspective. This is a serious question in my mind for all to think about for we truly need the best person to protect the freedoms we enjoy and for the future of our children and grandchildren.
Republican's have for years have gathered info against Hillary & taken that info and twisted it to make people think the worst and believe their lies & anyone who does not think or research for themselves will believe their lies & add to
We all certainly do need to do our own research to make an informed decision for sure.
To these leaders, those who take a comprehensive approach to addressing foreign affairs, the urge for them to defend America against foreign threats is less of an offensive act due to their ability to negotiate and leverage their disagreement.
"She knows more than Trump" many have said that here. Unfortunately she may be akin to Nixon or a mild Stalin... yes she knows more, and yes she has spent a lifetime trying to become President, and that in itself is scary, people who seek power are
Character/personality-wise, Trump has always reminded me of one person: His former good friend and attorney, Roy Cohn. They were very much alike.
Hi Shyron and Genna and all, Matt and Team HubPages corrected the problem of "Best" answer being chosen, when I did not choose it, so now I am free to choose it when I so desire! Thank you to everyone for participating.
Hi Anita, Wow, you've shared a lot of valid points here. Thank you for participating.
Hi Stephanie, Wow, you've presented your views well here. Thank you so much for taking time to answer this question. You make a lot of interesting points for sure.
LOL, Thomas, that is a great point there. Yes, we know without a doubt where he stands. I don't trust any politician either. Thank you for participating.
Hi Ashley, I understand, but so glad you are voting ...It is important to vote no matter what, for we have that right, and I don't want to ever lose it!
Hi Mackenzie, thank you for participating here. Yes, it is tough choice no doubt, but still one must be best for our country to defend against our enemies ...
Hi lee Ann, I appreciate your participation in this question. We do need someone who is capable to make sound decisions to ensure our country is safe.
Don't think Hillary is an enemy because her enemies say she.is.
Like Gary Johnson!
Even a french countries were talking about the american countries political parties and rules they were follow .france president viladimer pudin were talked earlier about the american politics even a very small country have a more political parties.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on both of these candidates, Norma. You're right about the terrorists and gangs will always have guns no matter what gun control they attempt to put into control, when the law abiding citizens will be defenseless.
Interesting answer, Malorie. Thank you for participating here.
I am curious, Malorie, how do you "rig" a national election which has 50 States (and D.C.), hundreds of counties, and more than 1,000 local precincts, each with their own rules governing the election?
1st get media to ignore news/shill for u.2nd Obama covers your crimes.3rd u only need to rig votes in swing states http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2012/11/11...
Hi Everyone, thank you for continuing to participate. Unfortunately, once again, BEST answer was chosen when I did NOT chose it! Sent HP Team email for help to remove it again ...
I knew that couldn't be the best answer, had to be a mistake...cause I had the best answer, of course. (just kidding, I'll take the bronze for this one :)
Haha ...Yes, I am about tired of Best being chosen (twice now) when I did NOT choose it? I can't even imagine how that keeps happening because I had not planned on choosing Best anytime soon ...Frustrating!
Hi Neil, Thank you for your passionate answer. Not sure I've heard of Jill Stein before. It's a lot to think about for sure.
Faith Reaper - have you looked up Jill Stein yet?
Hi Neil, I just Google Jill Stein. So, it says she is with the Green Party. I will have to listen to some of what she has to say and do more research. I'm sorry I just noticed your second comment back to me here.
Neil,re: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnEKEfkdrOU.This woman really needs to see a psychiatrist.Don't entertain her BS even for a second,she is nothing but a modern day Tokyo Rose for radical Islamic terrorism.read my comment on the vid
Hi jaydawg, thank you for answering and at least choosing one and sharing why.
Hi Natalie, they are all we've got ...
Hi Stefa, Wow, I love your honesty and level-head answer here! You do make perfect sense to me. Yes, I want to feel safe too. I appreciate your sincere answer and thank you for sharing your insightful thoughts.
Hi Richard, Thank you for the well thought out answer here. I agree on your points about immigration for I am all for legal immigrants. You've pointed out most interesting facts on both candidates for all to ponder.
Hi JT, Those are some hard-hitting facts that are difficult to ignore. Yes, there certainly seems to be great enthusiasm and possibly so due to an ever-increasing weariness of the same ol', same ol' ...
Agreed..same ole...same ole.
Hi JT, just popping in here to let you know that HP Team corrected the problem with "Best" answer being chosen when I didn't choose it, and it was removed, so I am able to choose "Best" answer when I so desire!
Hi Alex, I appreciate your participation here in answering and sharing your views on each candidate for President. Good points about both you have made. That seems to be exactly what he truly desires for the country.
Hi Deborah, Yes, I do trust the U.S. Military to defend our country, but as far as these two ...
Hi Graham, thank you for sharing your perspective from outside the US. There is a lot of necessary research to be made so that all can make an informed decision. But we only have these two ...
Watched the first in that series... people who are afraid of Trump thinking he is the 'next Hitler' (thanks to the media painting him that way of course) should instead be very afraid of who Hillary really is, and what her politics really are.
Yep. Look at them both and discard them both - that's what I've done anyway.
Hxprof, so you just would not vote ...I believe we should always vote no matter what, as there are counties in this world who have no choice at all, and so I think of voting as a genuine right.
Which other trouble are you afraid of ?, Promising moslems free visa and bombing ISIS at Irag,Yemen, Syria. Libya makes her always a target of the Islamic extremists unawares .What America needs now is a stronger president to contain the attacks.
Hi John, thank you for answering and sharing your thoughts on how the next President should proceed as far as defending our nation against terrorism.
But Hillary does not believe in the Constitution and has promised she will use executive order as much or more so than Obama.
Hi Jackie, Oh, really. Yikes, that is concerning!
Hi Carter, thank you for participating and sharing your choice of neither of these.
Thank goodness for the Canadians!
Hi victorianpanda, Thank you for participating here! You've given us much to think on. Another one here also mentioned Jill Stein. I will have to do more research.
Hi Elisabeth, Hmm, well. That would be a first and one can only wonder. However, I still believe it is important to always vote.
Consider Kyle that 1) Clinton was not "personally" responsible for Benghazi's defense, Steven's was; her responsibility is part of job as Secretary & 2) "MOST" is not defined as 0.0001% which is 3 out if 30,000 actually having a (C) mark somewher
Hi Kyle, thank you for answering and sharing your opinion quite well here. You make a lot of good points as to each candidate. It is sickening for sure! I appreciate your directness in answering.
Theresa, the thought of Trump being our president brings a fear that's indescribable. He is a danger to himself and our nation. I think Hillary will make a good president and President Clinton will help her make our country great again.
Hi John, thank you for weighing in here from an outside the U.S. perspective. Hi there, Ruby, too ...I should have posted a forum to allow for more discussion to answers ...Thank you both for sharing your thoughts here.
I tell you the truth I never liked Trump and never watched his stupid shows over the years but when he showed up saying what I feared and agreeing with all my thoughts I just saw hope for the first time now in 8 years!
Hi Jackie, I never cared for Trump at all before and never watched his shows either, but with the state of the world and terrorists boldly threatening our way of life, we do need someone who will stop our enemies dead in their tracks.
Ruby: You're right. This man is not who he says he is. The media is only now uncovering some ugly truths -- the laws he's broken, the people he's hurt. And the worst is yet to come.
Hi Genna, you're right in that it is plausible that we never truly know the true politician and it is hard to believe just the words that are coming out of their mouths, but we can go on past actions.
True, Faith. The media's asleep at the switch. I was shocked at how long it took them to unearth the Trump U scandal. And the Mohawk Casino scandal and violation of state lobbying laws was terrible.
Hillary is a crook!
Actually, she isn't; but Trump is in a big way; can you spell Trump University? Also, now he is asking foreign state to spy on Americans; does that make Trump a traitor?
Thank you, Genna, for those reminders. It just seems the lobbyists/politicians' relationship lends itself to corruption ...
Hi Ted and watergeek, yes, I'm sure one's idea of an "enemy" is a lot different to another. Here, I am talking about those who want to take away our freedoms in the US and harm us because we are Americans.
Hi writerjay, Thank you for anwering and sharing your reasons why for your choice. So, initially you did not care for Hillary, but have side had a change of heart after listening to Trump.
Hi Manmit Chahal, Thank you for answering. I do understand what you are saying, but the question posed is not really discussing diversity, but protecting our country from those who desire to harm us and our way of life. Zero tolerance for terror.
This choice of Best Answer has me a bit puzzled. Could you maybe explain Faith.
OKAY, IT HAPPENED AGAIN ...I DID NOT CHOOSE THIS ANSWER AS BEST ANSWER??? What is going on here! I'm sorry Manmit, but I did not choose your answer as best? I will have to email HP again as this happened before!
Hi Debraw, Thank you for answering and presenting your insightful thoughts and reasons for your choice.
Hi Ruth, Thank you for your participation here. Yes, those poor lost souls in Benghazi will forever haunt me.
So Ruth, are you saying Clinton single-handedly made all of the decisions that put the Ambassador in Benghazi, in a place he KNEW did not have adequate security and then PREVENTED anyone from helping them when it all went to hell?
Hi News of the Year, if only we had these fictional characters who were real ...
If I could hit the thumbs up more than once, I would.
Hi Christina, that was a good decision for sure about Osama bin Laden. Thank you for answering.
Really Christine? I guess you and ME are OK with George Soros running America through his puppet Hillary? Just out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkE2X6kWhvc
Hi Teresa, Thank you for participating here. When I think of Benghazi, I get sick to my stomach thinking of the lives lost when they did not have to die.He does seem to please the crowds. I think so many are tired of the same ol' mess and want change
Hi Jackie, You hit on some important facts on Hillary that are disturbing for sure, and I never believed for one minute the ridiculous story about a video. That is so sad about the lost lives when that did not have to be.
Well you know Hillary lost 6 billion dollars as Secretary of State so I sure would not trust her with money. Another crime she does not have to answer for. I am just amazed how so many can look right over her crimes and pretend they didn't happen.
With the House report on Benghazi, we've probably heard everything relevant to that story. People will decide to believe her or not. Both sides will call the evidence conclusive. If it was, why are there still two sides?
Why would we not believe the men that made it home alive that risked their life even being told not to help? Why would they lie?
Hi Chris, Yes, how did we end up here? Well, I certainly had a different candidate in mind than either of these two, but here we are. I am concerned that Hillary has taken billions from countries which will always weigh in on any decisions she makes.
In the general election, with the apparent choices of Hillary and Donald, I think America will do what it has to do in that situation, i.e. President of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Either that or they will stay home and not vote.
If FB is any indication you may be surprised. Out of over 700 friends there which were not chosen from a political view it is rare to have any for Hillary. The posts pretty much make fun of her and hail Trump. He may have more fans than we know!
If those were from one circle of friends, they may have a lot in common politically.
There's very few people on the internet for Hillary. Her demographic is very much aged 45+, democratic partisans, who respect authority/status-quo. I don't think that will win her the election. Trump has slightly more support with indies.
It will be interesting to watch it unfold. But this isn't about entertainment. Between now and the election, we will see more of both, especially in debates. Will Trump be disrespectful of Hillary as a woman? Remember how he treated Carly Fiorina?
Hi Chris, well, I think he says what's on his mind, no matter what gender, plus he has beautiful women in his life who he supports and loves. That issue is not what the question posed here asks ...but rather our security as a free Nation.
Chris, off topic; I wasn't going to mention this: His treatment of his ex-wives is legendary. And where he touched/stroked his daughter at the RNC as she finished her speech really bothered me.. And he held his wife in a arm lock distance/stance.
Hi Expert, Yes, we do indeed. Good point!
Hi Matt, Thank you for answering.
Experience in what, lying about Benghazi. You have no idea about the real Hillary Clinton. She has no beneficial accomplishments for the country or the people, but she does have a laundry list of qualifications, and actions.
bradmasterOCcal, you are the liar, but not so much malicious as severely misinformed and ignorant. I've already responded to you in my answer above regarding 'Trump supporters.' I never argue with people who don't know what they're talking about.
I won't argue with you, as you are the epitome of not knowing what they are talking about. And a potty mouth.
Hi C.E. Clark and Brad, looks like I should have posted a forum in lieu of asking a question, being HP doesn't allow much space to respond to an answer. Thank you both for expressing your thoughts on this important question for all to ponder.
bradmast: Hillary ASKED for more security in Benghazi, YOUR GOP who were in control said NO, and Hillary was blamed for their refusal to fill her request and it is another pass the blame game...Research it yourself!!!
Shyron - Hillary's State Department CUT security in Libya before the Benghazi. Do the research!!!!!!!!!
Facts are Facts. Hillary LIES. Her Emails revealed she KNEW Benghazi was a terrorist attack. She told the world it was the result of a video. She'll say anything. She has sold this country out to make money many times.
I agree with you, and not knowing the difference about what just happened with Britain, he is as ignorant as they come. The scary thing is no one wants to be his VP. except of course the obvious, Palin.
My fear is that Hillary is far more like Stalin, than Trump is like Hitler.
Trump is no politician, that is a plus, not a negative.
Hillary is the poster child for Washington Politics, and all the seedy, corrupt, dealings that are the worst of it.
It does seem the longer one is in the "dirty rotten politics" world, they are bound to get a little slimy, even if when started their intentions were honorable ...people may just want someone new as the Clintons have had their day and then some?
Keep in mind C E, that Trump does not listen to those experts he hires and fires. Why do you think he would start letting people tell him what to do now? Because he lacks experience, he has no reference to judge advice.
Hxprof, Congress controls funding/un-funding, not St. Dept. I did the research, suggest you do likewise.
Shyron u know NOTHING.Even the DoS said their budget had nothing to do with not providing security in Benghazi! The DoS not only failed to honor repeated requests for additional security, but instead actually reduced security in Libya.
Here are the cold, hard facts regarding Benghazi. 1) Amb Stevens make the decision to travel, 2) Stevens was WELL aware of the dangers of going to the compound, 3) Stevens and CIA were NOT aware of the degree to which the militia was ready to attack.
There are other facts that are less favorable to your POV.
Those are the facts that put Stevens in that place at that time. The other major factor is that security was hampered because of bureaucratic issues and management failures from his office up to one or two levels down from Clinton.
The truth is coming out the ambassador was in Benghazi overseeing gun running to Syrian rebels orchestrated by Hillary. There is no other explanation for him to be there. What Syrian rebels? Well they included ISIS..
"bureaucratic issues and management failures from his office up to one or two levels down from Clinton." - So Clinton has no blame, and the Ambassador is to blame for his own death? I take it you're voting for Clinton in this election?
Listen to Putin explain how "people in power"(Hillary and BO)created ISIS https://youtu.be/OQuceU3x2Ww?t=97 GET THIS! More wikileaks of HRC's emails prove that she followed the orders of Soros https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tctl8FNasFo
Now we know Don't Taze's allegiance ... Putin and Russia
HAHA,we've had your number from the first time you opened your mouth,it's called The Looney Left,&what u just said bout me confirms it,left wing socialists/communists always ignore the facts and attack the messenger when they've failed
What experience, and lies are your choice of speech.
Hi Brynn, Thank you for participating and sharing your reasons for your choice. Hi Brad, just wanted you and everyone to know I did not choose the Best answer and HP is looking into what may have happened.
Hillary was Secretary of State, so she does have experience in that area. Donald has only had experience with his buisnesses. It is not the same and I didn't say anything about lies. He just says whatever pops into his head.
However, it is true that more than 50% of the claims of fact Trump makes, according 2 Politifact & other such fact-checking organizations, are lies. To any observer with reasonable powers of observation, Trump is a pathological liar; where HRC is
Hi Brynn, thank you for clarifying here.
Hi Florence, Thank you for sharing your perspective. Those are certainly some concerns to consider as to trust issues and following the law. It does seem there are always those who have a Get out of Jail card ...
I doubt Republicans would be any better, but you're right about Hillary. Here are some of her lies from the last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YunIdTQ4HS8 . Loyal Democrats just put their fingers in their ears. Thankfully, most Americans care
My Esoteric's apologies for the Clinton's becomes tiring. We know what sort of people Mark Rich, Web Hubbell, the FLAN terrorists, Trie, Huang, Hsu, and many others are, or were. Her US uranium deal/swindle is all one needs to know about this menace.
ME,really?u're back to the vast right wing conspiracy,Hillary's most ridiculous nationally exposedLIE?U need to get with the times man,everybody knows there r dozens of people in prison for doing far less than the least ofHRC's criimes
Truth and logic does not equal "apology", it equals reason. Why aren't you condemning the other 8 non-State Dept officials who approved the Uranium deal? What has any of those other names you dropped have to do with Clinton criminal behavior? None
is more like Liberals want sheep. Isn't it enough that you got fat on this corrupt and obese gov and continue to do so.Of course you want the country to continue under Obmanation thru Hillary.
The other 8?Fine with me but we aren't talking about them though since you mentioned it,if they are worthy of condemnation as you seem to think,how is Hillary not?ME your statements put u at the bottom of credibility and ur going downhill
The other names show "birds of a feather." Hill / Obama made concession to Putin with uranium rights thru Canadian intermediary. How is this in US best interest? Regardless of "legality" CRIME. Like TV sharks promise God's bounty for $29.95 - CRIME
Hi Jerry, Thank you for participating. That's true. ...wish we had another choice.
Actually, to your Honduras point, I showed in a previous answer somewhere, your view is wrong. Also elsewhere I pointed out Chamberlain was a dove before WW II, look where that got the world. Being a restrained hawk is a good thing.
Being a lame duck Clinton isn't
Except it won't be lame duck until year 7.5 of her Presidency.
Hi Shamim, Thank you for pointing out those areas of concern. I appreciate your participation here.
Hi ChrisIndellicati, thank you for sharing your personal perspective of each candidate's character or the lack thereof ...I guess LOL
So true, cfin! It is a huge problem with the ever-increasing violence and hate in this world. God help us all!
Hi Richie, Thank you for answering from an outside USA perspective.
Hi Besarien, good points you've shared here as to each one of us doing our part in today's social climate. That would make a good hub, but does not answer the question posed here. Thank you for sharing your thoughts though.
Maybe you thought I was negating your question but "None of the above." was in fact my answer. Sorry I had to rant a bit, but we can't depend on either of them to keep America safe.
Oh, I understand about the rant and your choice of "none of the above" ...thank you for the clarification here. I appreciate your participation.
Hi Ephraim, Well, those who cry "Death to America" ...would certainly qualify as an enemy, I would think. Thank you for participating as a non-American.
But doesn't America need a strong, SANE president that doesn't change what he says three times in the same speech like #LyinTrump does?
Mr. E - Hillary lies more in many people's opinion, even if you don't believe that. Last I heard, 68% of Americans don't trust her. She's earned that mistrust. And, even if Trump is unpredictable, Hillary is cold and calculating. No lesser evil.
Thank you, Prayerhub, for your answer and explaining why your choice is Trump.
Thomas, the key word in your comment is "opinion". Go to any fact checking organization that have looked at HRC and Trump statements, look at their citations backing up their findings, and then tell me HRC lies more than Trump.
OK, Hillary lies more than Trump, and most Americans tend to agree with that. I suspect there's a few Bosnian snipers out there with tarnished reputations who agree with it too.
Esoteric is correct. For Clinton, it's 23% lied/mistaken versus 76% lied/mistaken for Trump. You don't even need the fact check orgs to confirm. Just by listening, he's pretty much "out there." It's why he's called the King of the Whoppers.
Hi Genna, thank you for weighing in here. I'm thrilled HP fixed my problem of "Best" answer being chosen when I did not choose it! Whew ...
She's lied 23% of the time over a 20 year political career? Seems about right actually.
Yes, Thomas, 23%, probably about your rate as well I bet, along with most normal people.
No, most normal people don't lie 23% of the time. We should expect better from politicians. I'm fed up with people forgiving Hillary for everything - presumably because she's a Democrat. Both main parties are corrupt and more people are realizing it.
Hey, guys, let's be mindful to not resort to personal attacks against each other here and lower ourselves to the politicians' level. Thank you for your continued participation.
No, Thomas, I wrote, "lied/mistaken" on the campaign trail. Actually, she has been the most honest/correct out of all the candidates this election cycle. Trump's 74% is appalling to say the least but not at all surprising.
Ah the Trump is bad fallback. Hill supporters can't stop talking about Trump. I get it. He's awful, and I believe he lies a lot. He's been in this game all of 5 minutes. Hillary's been doing it a lot longer and lied a lot more (overall) in that time.
Thomas, you can't reason with political zombies, you will find them in denial of even this, PROOF Hilary takes her marching orders from Soros https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkE2X6kWhvc
Hi muadhah, Thank you for participating and sharing your choice.
Hi Brad, Thank you answering here. I know this is a topic about which you are passionate for the reasons you express. I believe I should have posted a forum on this topic as opposed to a question so to allow for more free discussion.
You have come a long way Brad, I think you may know more dirt on that woman than I ever found out, which is quite enough and letting our 4 die in Benghazi is quite enough to know she could never, ever be trusted.
BradBOT; improper use of program statements; Overflow (Error 6) - Are you really Sophie from Hanson Robotics?
Easy to tell who are the adults here in these comments, thank you ptosis for making that clear.
Hi Adam, that is a good point there concerning Hillary.
Hi Shan, hopefully, both candidates understand how important it is to have wise and experienced people to inform them of what's best for our national security. Let's pray that is the case.
I sure hope so!
Neither is Correct. I'm With Jill.... Thrivalism is possible.... we just have to stop believing that an outdated obsolete system can do the trick. Bernie join Jill would be the ultimate
So you are saying Jill, a candidate for President, wants to toss out an obsolete Constitution and write a new one? Is that what "stop believing that an outdated obsolete system " means to you?
My esoteric- If you read my letter - links within it and listened to Jill's video in th letter - you would not ask me this
I'd recommend reading about Clinton's hawkish past. What you've said here doesn't sound anything like what she'd do.
Hi Jennifer, Wow, I believe you've made some great observations here about the possible outcome of our future where both are concerned. I appreciate your participation!
Hi Mrs Questions, Thank you for your participation.
Thank you for answering, Julie. I appreciate you taking time to relay why you choose Hillary, and why you do not choose Trump.
Why do you trust her? And you think things about Trump. Nothing of substance in either of these opinions. You think she did a good job in Benghazi, or with protecting national security with her private email servers. Or her veracity on them?
GoGreen platform to me is by far the most fair. Jill Stein has some amazing ideas. It's time for ALL to thrive.... from the North Pole to the South pole. Thirvalism
Hi Johanna, Wow, you've shared a lot of great insight into your choice here as to why you think Trump is the best candidate to defend our country against our enemies. I appreciate your participation!
Hi Naomi Carla, I appreciate you taking the time to answer and sharing why.
Hi Lakeyia, I appreciate you putting in your "two cents" as you say. You've presented some interesting views here on your choice. I agree about those who do not bother to vote, haven't earned the right to complain.
Any Democrat with any experience running for president is going to be investigates on some trumped-up charge. Obama will probably be next. Mark my words....
MizBejabbers - TWO THOUSAND pieces of classified information have been found - some of which was to be compartmented information. To claim that is "trumped up" is simply refusing to accept the facts
Hi JDWilhite, thank you for answering. Yes, one candidate does have previous actions we can review and the other candidate we don't have that to go on unfortunately ...
Thank you, Jackson. I did not realize about the other question posed and that you had written a hub to answer the question. That is interesting!
Hi crista-alina data ... Who the candidates or the world?
Wow, Guillotine, what an interesting answer and perspective you have presented here. You've provided a lot to think on especially about our "enemies" ...
Have you listened to Jill's July 31st speech? She addresses this with intelligence and class. Link is on the bottom of my hub Dear Bernie
Hi Amanda, Thank you for your straightforward answer about your concerns about Trump and possible use of a nuclear weapon.
Yes, Trump is a businessman, by all accounts a failed one ... any businessman who goes bankrupt four times is a failure by anyone's measure. Your businessman hero has a documented history of not paying contractors and filing frivolous lawsuits.
Wow, Rae, thank you for answering and sharing exactly how you feel about Trump and the other. Yes, he certainly is not afraid to say what's on his mind. I am so tired of all of the political correctness too to say the least!
Nvm, I won't argue. Thanks for the question faith, God bless!
Hi Sanjay, thank you for answering and you have presented good points here. You're right, the future of the world in general and America in particular will be shaped by whichever one becomes President ...
Its funny, few really understand who Hillary is... a far more dangerous entity than Trump could ever hope to be. Trump is bluster and bravado, in reality he is a decent human being and businessman. Hillary is ruthless, conniving, obsessively driven
Hi Shanae, That seems to be the case for many others too ...
Hi David, Yes, that is what is so scary to me ...who each candidate believes is an enemy and why.
And Barack Obama had what kind of Experience before he became president.
Based on the Clinton history both of them where did you get that idea??
Real Change "IS" possible.... but from my point of view neither Hillary nor Trump have the solution. Both of them are trapped into thinking an outdated system can be modified to work. That's a fallacy. I'm with Jill.
It's time to vote on values.
Brad, PBO had much more political experience than #LyinTrump.
Neil, So your recommendation is to tear up the Constitution, return to 1776 and begin again?
I respectfully disagree but hope whoever wins we will head into the future less divided.
Hi Brie, Thank you for participating here and sharing your reasons why not for Hillary and why for Trump. Those are interesting points there about those governments and women and gays.
Hi Aaron, Thank you so much for participating here. Trust is huge when it homes to the leader of the free world. ...hard to know who to trust these days. He certainly states whatever comes to his mind. Hmm, that is interesting about that book.
Hi Michael, Thank you for answering and stating why you would not choose Trump.
Compared to Trump?Michael needs to do a little studying of HRC.How does Trump compare on national security(her unsecured server), how many gov't emails of Trumps disappeared?Trump isn't to blame for the death of patriots & lying about it ???
Hi Shehzad Hussain, thank you for sharing your perspective from Islamabad.
Faith I have been following this very "successful" question and am always pleased to see your pleasantness. Your actions show your wonderful faith.
Thank you so much, dear Eric. You are always so kind to me and all others, which is telling of your faith too. Peace and blessings
I wouldn't call Hillary peace-loving. You might want to look at her hawkish record of wars and interventions.
"Peace-loving" does not mean "Pacifist". Peace-loving does mean you prefer peace over war. Chamberlain was "peace-loving" and look what that led to ... WW II. Being "hawkish" and "peace-loving" are not mutually exclusive.
Hi Sajib, Thank you for answering from a non-American viewpoint. Hmmm, interesting.
You might want to educate yourself about Hillary Clinton before you go spouting praise for her "sensible peace loving ways". She is a warmonger, a liar, a racist (remember super predator?), and she has suppressed the American Peoples right to vote.
Hi victorianpanda, Thank you for your straightforward comment here.
Yes, the most scary thing about Hilary is that she hides her true intentions. Trump can say some crude and disrespectful things, but at least he is more honest. Hilary has a record of violence--it's just very well hidden.
I agree. I think both Trump and Clinton would make more enemies in the world. Better off looking to 3rd party candidates. Jill Stein would create friends because she's a pacifist. Gary Johnson would create friends because he cares more about trade.
Other than Iran, Russia, and North Korea what enemies did HRC make as SoS? How many relationships were repaired by HRC that had been destroyed by Bush? Better terms with Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, etc.
Hi Mercy and poetry, Thank you for answering. Reducing enemies. ...hmm, that's a nice thought but may be far from reality, sadly, with the ever-growing extremists who cry "Death to America" ...we can always hope though.
Hi Ken; I don't believe that Trump wants Hillary to win by running himself. I think he had no idea his bid would snowball in the primary, and his initial quest was for the attention and name branding; although a Trumpian dynasty still appeals.
Hi Ken, that is certainly a different take on things you have expressed here. I think Genna makes a good point about Trump never imagining all of this to come to be, and here he is ...
D'Souza: What Will America Become Under Hillary Clinton? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6FcHRnIN5s Interesting what he says about the Republican party near the end
#LyinTrump is an extremely dangerous joke, clown, entertainer, flame-thrower, uniformed, thoughtless, shallow, non-politician who most likely has narcissist personality disorder, a very serious condition for someone who wields power. That is not HRC
What Trump isn't is the blame for the death of our men in Benghazi,illegally selling influence to foreign countries,compromising national security w/illegal unsecured server,Clinton Fndtion massive moneylaundering scheme.Who would that be?
Thank you, Don't Taze Me, I appreciate your passionate answer. FYI I did not choose Best answer and so having HP checking to undo that choice as I did not choose it once again.
Tell me, if Hillary is so unqualified, then why do New Yorker's like her (51%) as Senator (and don't say they didn't, they absolutely did) and why did she finish her term as Secretary with a nice positive rating (57%)?
Well said Stacy, maybe some good will come of this election after all. Mr Esoteric, I don't see how approval ratings from a couple of polls from years ago equates to her being qualified. Her current rating is awful, but it's also not relevant to that
Hi Stacy, Yes, it is just a what do you think forum being I'm not sure how many questions one is allowed to pose in a forum. FYI I did not choose Best answer yet and so I have HP checking into why it is showing chosen when I did not chose it. Shelby/
So an approval rating is evidence of her qualifications?I'll bet the kardashians had a better approval rating.When the media who does the polls is in your pocket not hard to see an approval rating swayed.She is an approved liar & criminal
Thanks, Marc, yes, both certainly have their unique idiosyncrasies for sure!
Best answer in a nutshell.
Sad thing is, Hillary's plan for America is worse than Trump's lack of 'worldly experience'... Hillary knows what she is doing is terrible for Americans and America and she does it anyway, Trump might do the wrng thing unknowingly, so which is worse?
Thanks, Kenzie, hahaha ...well, that is a reason. Seems he does know how to do that and you may have hit on exactly why.
Hi Patricia, Yes, this election is like nothing before for sure, and I hardly take time to watch any of it, because it is disturbing how they are acting. I want to tell myself they are just passionate about their views but ... I understand and thanks
Hi Steven, Thank you for sharing your choice and the reason why. Interesting.
I doubt Trump can't keep his mouth shut, you don't build a multi billion dollar business by being that foolish.
Hillary on the other hand, is a proven liar and crook whose made 10's of millions of dollars selling influence to foreign governments.
PUH-LEEZE do go vote for the Johnson/Weld ticket... At least read the preamble at lp.org/platform !
Hi Debra, thank you for answering here. Yes, we must be informed well on each candidate's intentions as to how they will lead our country and defend it against those who are intent on harming us.
Debra, while I think you are wrong about Hillary, I agree with Nudely, please do vote for somebody. America can be successful as a country ONLY if people participate in running the country by voting..
Thank you for participating here and sharing your thoughts, IslandBites.
:) yeah no ego in Hillary at all. Although, one has to wonder what makes a person who was already in the White House for 8 years, and then ran her career specifically to get back there (Senate, Sec of State) so driven to become President?
I didn't say she has no ego. I said she's not an airhead with a big ego.
Both candidates have equally huge egos. We're doomed either way, unless a miracle happens.
Hi savvy, thank you for weighing in here ...yes, that does seem to be the case, sadly.
Hi srosales, Thank you for answering and stating exactly why you would choose Trump over Hillary. There is a lot of concerning past actions that do need to be considered for sure in this area, especially.
Hi Doc, I appreciate you particpating in my poll question here. Trump can get mad it seems or either is really passionate about whatever topic at the moment?
There is no real support behind the hyperbolic accusations against HRC. I do agree " you cannot separate a person's past decisions from the likely future actions" SO, does that mean u don't mind Trump running the country like he runs his campaign.
You're right about Hillary being careless, even the FBI director called her "extremely careless". But, being a business man doesn't qualify someone to be President. I guess that's what you get in a country where capitalism is the religion.
Also, Conservatives cover your ears, you can't run government, local, state, or federal like a business; it will fail in a heartbeat. It won't even be good enough to sustain a military.
It failed in 2008 and now it has a $20 trillion dollar heart lung machine.
Bush tried to run the gov't like a business and now we have a $20 trillion debt as a result of his failure and the cost to fix it.
Hi Elias, I appreciate your participation here and explaining why Trump is your choice and your perspective on Hillary and her past actions.
Until the monetary system of the world is flipped right side up - NO political leader can accomplish a dam thing that they state n their platforms. Thrivalism is the solution.... not voting for anyone at all makes the most sense.
ME Hyperbolic accusations?So in your little perverted world vies the truth is considered Hyperbolic accusations...I guess this breaking news is hyperbolic accusations:listen to end if you dare https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkE2X6kWhvc
Hi Raul, Thank you for participating and sticking to the question asked. Somehow Best answer was chosen when I did not choose it and had not planned on doing it for a good while. HP is looking into the problem.
Hi Thomas, thank you for your detailed answer here. Interesting points on both candidates you have shared. I wish we had more choices, but we must discern which one will be the best to do the job for our safety and way of life.
Thanks Faith Reaper. I don't think we actually need to decide though. If they'd both do more harm than good, no-one should have to endorse that harm by voting for it. No-one should have to lumber their conscience in that way. i.e. Vote for neither.
Hi Thomas, I see that you're from New Zealand so it may be a bit easier for you to say to not vote, as you have no vote. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and why. I grew up being taught that it is important to always vote though.
I've been in NZ less than a year. I also never said not to vote. I said not to vote for Trump or Clinton. Personally, I'd vote for Jill Stein of the Green Party, or write-in Bernie. Taking a stand against 2-party politics is a vote for democracy.
Hi Thomas, thank you for the clarification here. I understand what you are saying.
Thank you for participating, cowboy. FYI I'm checking into why a Best answer was chosen here when I did not choose it. Hope it can be removed.
Hi Megan, thank you for answering and your reasoning behind your answer. Let's hope the person who is elected will be wise enough to seek out counsel of those in the know on such important matters.
The emails that disappeared. You all know that if we did this, we would be sitting in jail right now and not being able to run for president. And what about bengazi? My heart goes out to the American families who lost their loved ones there.Go Trump
Yes, Debraw, those poor souls should not have died ...period!
Hi Stella, You're right, President Clinton did balance the budget so that at least is a hopeful thought and maybe she would be able to do the same if elected. Oh, I can't stand all the name calling either. Thank you for answering.
There was no war when Clinton was Present,and we had the Dot Com bubble which would burst.
That's true about no war during Clinton's time, Brad.
Lol ...funny and scary at the same time.
Hi Mhorvena, I appreciate your participation in this question. Yes, he certainly states whatever is own his mind. We do need someone who is able to state the obvious as to our enemies.
Hi there, Arthur, the not so anonynous. Thank you for your opinion. Well, you know what they say about opinions ...
Since you don't like capitalism ( another name for free markets) what is your solution, government control? Is government control going to cure greed?
Hi Christopher, Thank you for your participation and sharing your concerns. It's hard to believe these are the only choices we will have as leader of the free world ...
Again, her experience. Would you vote her in for that experience knowing she was the next Stalin, or Hugo Chavez? Experience and Power can be a dangerous thing in the wrong hands.
Experience and power in the wrong hands can certainly be very dangerous.
And Clinton isn't?Her lies top anything Trump has said,her ACTIONS include needlessly causing death of our troops,endangering national security,selling influence to our enemies.No comparison to Trump who has done nothing to hurt America
Weren't her "sniper fire" and "I was named after Sir Edmund Hillary" comments not indicative of gross narcissism?
You haven't heard? Hillary WASN'T LYING! Bosnia gunfire footage discovered. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHVEDq6RVXc
No, Clinton's isn't. You might look up the definition and characteristics of narcissism Bro; only Trump exhibits those, not Clinton, not Pence, not Kane, not Johnson, not Weld, and not Stein .. ONLY #LyinTrump.
1.) Inflated view of achievements & talents
2.) no limit to sense of self-importance
3.) preoccupied w/ fantasies of power, brilliance, & success
4.) think that they're special and unique
5.) expect and need constant and excessive admiration
I looked a narcissist up and guess what, under the definition there it was, a picture of Hillary.
Hi Kace, thank you for sharing your choice. Hmm, that is an interesting thought ...a narcissistic for President. Surely something to think on more.
The ones who cry "Death to America" and want to kill us because of our freedoms and way of life.
What enemies in particular? Well there's an example of an uninformed voter. We're so strong we have no enemies, that makes sense.Even super heroes have enemies, maybe drop what you are reading and step up to comic books.
I Michelle, yes, it seems "trust" is a tough one for this election no doubt! LOL ...good point there.
Americans only have the will to make and spend money. Many condemn BLM but don't have the courage or motivation to confront the system when white people are also murdered by miscreant Cops. No way they could stop an invasion without the War Pigs.
Hi Mike, You know, as scary as that sounds, you may be right. I hope it never comes to that, but things seem to be a little out of control everywhere.
Hi Tamara, That is certainly a huge concern to not admit the true nature of our enemies for sure. Let's pray that Shariah law is never implemented here in the U.S. for our country as we know it will never be the same without a doubt. Disturbing ...
I will argue that Fundamentalist Christian or even Fundamentalist Jewish Law is only marginally better than Shariah law. No religious law should be the "law of the land".
Yeah,Stevens&about 57 other dead bodies according to the Clinton body count.Now add this! http://townhall.com/columnists/rachelalexander/201...
Without a doubt he would say Hillary; just ask his sister.
What is she, clairvoyant? Why not ask you, from your answers you sound like a clairvoyant too.
Don't need to be clairvoyant, just observant and an avid reader of current events. People are allowed to draw reasonable conclusions from the data available.
I guess Stevens' sister doesn't want to wake up dead like her brother... "YEAH, GO HILLARY!!!"
EM yeah but from your comments it is obvious you censor the data available and only consider what suits your point of view. Behavior indicative of deceitful motivation.
I think Chris' mother said all that needed to be said in her wise and intelligent letter to the editor of the NY Times. I prefer to follow her example.
Hi Nudely, that would be interesting to note.
@Genna, that is a good point you have there.
Hi KC, and as someone else pointed out too, that the President's job is not to defend our country but to lead it, as there are others who are actually in charge of that, but the President has the last say ...
Hi Cynthia, I appreciate you taking the time to answer here and explaining why Hillary is your choice and not Trump.
More of the same? Interesting concept. My momma taught me that if you want change vote for change, If you want the same vote for the same. I kinda want change.
The German's voted for change in 1938, didn't they. How did that work out? And yes, I do compare Hitler with Trump. Each has the same personality and each goes after the worst in people as well as their worst fears.
Hi Eric, Yes, I sure do want something to change! It just can't go on like this for to much longer ...
You have no grounds to call Trump, Hitler. How many people has Trump killed compared to the Clintons? How many countries has he invaded. You are just insecure about Trump, and your flawed statistics. No statistics stopped the 2008 bubble bust.
Brad, who said I said Trump is Hitler? I said Trump has many of the same traits as Hitler & the same campaigning style; of which there is no question. Both are narcissists, both lie at the drop of the hat, both blame everybody else for their prob
"Both are narcissists, both lie at the drop of the hat, both blame everybody else for their problems" - Sounds more like Trump and Hillary to me. Why can some people see these traits in one candidate, but not the other? Partisanship, I guess.
It is extreme partisanship that can't see that one describes Trump and not Hillary. There is plenty of evidence of Trump lying and misleading at every opportunity while there's little evidence of HRC lying and some evidence of misleading.
Little evidence of HRC lying?Do you live under a rock? Hillary has a record of 40 years of lying,why do you think this http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2016/07/15/...
I almost feel sorry for the Bosnian snipers whose reputations were ruined after Hillary claimed they shot at her and missed.
NOW I see why you, Thomas, are a Trump zealot, kindred spirits.
Nope, can't stand Trump either. But it is typical of a partisan to assume everyone who disagrees with them is a partisan for the other side.
Well, Thomas, there is hope for you yet. Now all you have to do is take your blinders off and see the world as it really is and not what you fanaticism allows you to see.
Hi Everyone, Thank you for your continued particpation. Team HP removed the Best answer that I did not choose! I'm so relieved, as it was as if someone was putting words in my mouth. This happened twice ...strange!
I'm not sure how I can be fanatical or blinded if I don't favor either candidate. I've looked at both without red/blue tinted glasses. They're both awful. Your comment makes me think of this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projec...
Thomas, Bosnian snipers? I guess you didn't see this. Hillary WASN'T LYING! Bosnia gunfire footage discovered! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHVEDq6RVXc
Because the republicans have been creating that LIE for, you think that it is true? You go ahead and trust Trump.... Then you will deserve what that man does to our country.... but the rest of us do not.
And you trust Trump? Really!
Not trusting Hillary and studying her actual record does not mean someone trusts trump. No, it's not a vast right wing conspiracy. Hillary is a terrible candidate with a horrible record, but her cheerleaders aren't interested in knowing the truth.
Hi Nathan, thank you for answering. Hi Shyron, I wish we could forget party lines and truly be united for the best interest of our country. Hi Christin, you've presented a good point there. Thank you all for participating.
This fits this question and I wish everyone would listen to it.
