        Lol. That may start a chain reaction of resentment which will lead to world changes unimagined. Kind of like Castro losing his dream of playing professional baseball in America. Hitler's dreams of being an artist dashed. Mohammed desire to be a prophet unfulfilled.

        Hub pages may regret this act.

          I get your point, hmm...I may forever be wondering. 

          Like Hillary thinks she is capable of being president of the United States.
          “Capable?
          Capable of leaving AMERICANS to die.
          Capable of disregarding law.
          Capable of disrespecting rape survivors.”
          ~ Steven Seagal

    lol I've heard Hillary called a lot of things. None synonymous with good. But, I'd put it more like choosing between a dung heap and a compost pile.

    Corrupt establishment politicians like Hillary Clinton are the reason for the manifestation of Trump.  This isn't about Trump, he represents "We The People" who are fed up with corruption in Washington.  It is truly a movement.  IMHO

    This isn't about Democrats or Republicans in my view, its about the corrupt establishment on both sides that took over.  They are evil.

    It's ABSOLUTELY a CONTEST of "GOOD" vs "EVIL" ~ Hillary FIGHTING for Good & Righteous IDEAs while "Delusional Donald", a "NATIONAL Disgrace" According to Colin Powell & the VAST Majority of AMERICANs, Continues to CON, Manipulate, SWINDLE & TEST the "GULLIBILITY" of a Small SLICE of the AMERICAN Electorate by PEDDLING LIEs, Misinformation, Hate, FEAR, Divisiveness, RACISM, Bigotry, WOMAN Hating & ANTI-American Rhetoric ~

    In the END, "GOOD Always DEFEATs EVIL" & when this happens in NOVEMBER, "SWINDLER Donald" I'm sure will have the "OPTION" to MOVE himself & his ENTIRE GRIFTER Family to the COUNTRY he Now PLEDGEs his ALLEGIANCE to....COMMUNIST Russia....If of course he's NOT "Indicted & EMPRISONED" for any number of ILLEGAL Actions before then sad ~

    GOOGLE "Felix Sater & TRUMP" ~ Just one EXAMPLE of "Delusional Donald's" CLOSE Connections & TIEs to CRIMINALs in Communist Russia ~ A stand alone "DISQUALIFIER" ~ Then GOOGLE "Trump Encourages ESPIONAGE AGAINST the United States ~ Just ONE More "DISQUALIFIER" ~ sad ~ His ANTI-American AGENDA is ENDLESS ~

    Still WONDERING WHY Donald is CONCEALING his Tax RETURNs?? It should be MANDATORY for EVERYONE to READ this:

            Seriously? The premise put forth is that this election is a case of good versus evil. Sounds less than a mature conclusion. What is good, in the context of politics? What is evil? It's all rather silly, if you ask me.

              Sebastian Franzenposted 20 months agoin reply to this

              From our perspective it is a case of good vs evil. Or at least that there is one that is better than the other but that's viewing it from a European perspective. Perhaps my opinion ( and that of others ) would be different if we lived there, in any case this is how we see it.

                    * INSULTING Carly Fiorina for her APPEARANCE is EVIL
                    * Proliferating a "GRAND Lie" that OUR Current President is NOT a Citizen is EVIL
                    * Misogyny & HATRED of Women is EVIL
                    * RACIAL Hatred & Bigotry is EVIL

                And, I'd really argue the authoritarian label you appear to be placing on Trump. I feel like we are under such a government now and a vote for Hillary would compound the problems.

        Having your own opinion is part of living in a free society. No one can blame you either way as the two choices presented are less than adequate for the task. Be careful of absolutes as that is the theme these politicians focus on rather than the issues.

        Just a friendly heads up!  HubPages TOS:  "Only adults (18 years and over) may register for an Author account."

        It would be a waste of time to publish on HP since you are not 18 yet?  Could be, maybe so.

    The presidential election THIS year  ; Is totally about entitlement acquisition .

    I am watching every single and  especially  inner city , protest riot  against  the conservative   candidate this election  , having been around for decades ,  and am clearly  seeing the reasoning behind them .  There is a mass movement towards entitlement driven voting .  Charlotte , Chicago , Baltimore ,Cincinnati ,  , Cleveland ,Detroit , NYC.,  Atlanta ,   Ferguson ,  ............

    Name the city , name the protest , name the  SUPPOSED reasoning  ,  BUT ,  what does the evidence show ?   What is being taken  from others ?
    Cigarettes
    Red Bull
    Nike's   
    Clothing
    Guns


    So you tell me , what is the message of these protests ?
