    There is no reason for vote for either of them. Hillary is going to be a repeat of Obama, and republican obstruction. Sanders is going to take the handout by the democrats to the extreme creating a new generation of people on welfare or its socialist equivalent.

    Hillary has so many skeletons in her closet, it is a wonder how the door doesn't break under the pressure. Sanders may have good intentions but we need a government that will bring back the American Middle Class from the 50s. That was the last strong era for the US.

    As well as neither of them have a professional track record that indicates they know how to run the country.

      How does increasing the minimum wage and creating more jobs from infrastructure programs lead to more people being on welfare...do explain.

      With all your rants for Trump, do you personally believe he has a professional track record to run a country?

      Do you never accept the fact that although Hillary has had more mud flung at her than anyone, she is still standing, AND she has more experience than ANY of the other candidates? Sanders also has YEARS of experience in government. Are U blind?

      Link, if you increase the minimum wage, who is going to pay for that increase?  Where are all these jobs going to come from?  Selling people things they don't need--to spend more money?

      You raise taxes Loli. Simple as that, I don't know why people act like that's avoidable.

      And I already mentioned where the jobs come from...Infrastructure rebuilding programs. Which we sorely need. Who would have thought?

      You begged me to call you a terrorist sympathizer, and your statements are consistent with one. Rant, is just name calling.

      Why wouldnt the guy whos in favor of being worse than the terrorist themselves see the irony in calling someone a terrorist sympathizer...

      Anyway, You do realise "rant" isn't a name to call someone right?

      You are the one that used the word, RANT.
      How is anyone worse than the terrorists?

      Your multiple Q&A's complaining that people are attacking Trump and not focusing on the critical issues counts as rants yes, though that isn't particularly a negative thing.

      So are we going to go over my initial questions at all?

      You had 2?s Obama dn have a track record of running the country.
      Increasing the min wage limits the number of jobs because many small businesses dn have enough profits to pay it. That loss of jobs increases welfare. These are the jobs of welfare peop

      I would imagine Increasing minimum wage, creating jobs from infrastructure rebuilding programs, and making healthcare universal puts more money into circulation to compensate, though I won't claim I'm an expert on economics.

      That is a nice thought, but who is going to pay for that increase? California is raising the minimum wage to $15 hr, how are businesses going to afford that? Forcing them to do it, can result in the business folding. Gov dn understand economics

      It's a shame one of the wealthiest/most powerful countries on earth can't afford to give living wages to its citizens, but can afford to bankrupt them with medical bills and waste trillions on its military.

      Crazy stuffs...

      The US 2 party sys has weakened the US. The gov would be the winner of higher min salary on income tax and FICA tax. Paying everyone the same min wage dn get the same employee performance. While some work others goof.

      Minimum wage isn't supposed to reflect how well you perform, its a guaranteed minimum amount that is supposed to be a living wage, and it's on you to perform well enough to increase it from there.

      Though as it stands, its not even a living wage.

      So the alternative is that companies will only hire entry people that will perform, and that will leave many of the welfare people still on welfare. Minimum wage is also not supposed to be welfare. So what is your point for the ? asked abov

      Link10103posted 23 months agoin reply to this

      I don't really know what the point is supposed to be anymore. You mentioned minimum wage being related to performance and that threw me off.

      You've only seemed to focus on increasing min wage and how that's bad, but not all 3 things together.

      inc min wage dn create more jobs, just the opp
      less jobs eq more welfare
      The track rec of professional politicians has resulted in what we saw in 2008 and today. Trump has a business record that is better than the US, and he has exp from it. 1,2, 3

      ...I never said increasing the minimum wage creates more jobs. I didn't even hint at that.

      And um, I don't count any business record that has multiple bankruptcies as good, or even mediocre. Most people wouldn't...

      you said. "How does increasing the minimum wage and creating more jobs from ??infrastructure programs?? lead to more people being on welfare"
      The country hasn't been out of bankruptcy, it just prints more money, 17 tril loans from China.

      1. Increase minimum wage
      2. Create jobs from infrastructure rebuilding programs

      Two different things. I separated them pretty clearly

      Also who takes financial advice to escape bankruptcy from someone whos filed for bankruptcy multiple times?

      ...you don't pay any attention to what's being said do you?

      Bankruptcy is a business technique? Odd how you talk about keeping people off of welfare yet praise a "business technique" that does the exact opposite.

      Lol what a joke.

    Between the 2 of them, Sanders is the only one with a record of consistently trying to help the American people, primarily the poor and middle class.

    Hilary's questionable past aside, lately all she does is parrot Sanders, turns around to attack him on something, then flips to advocating for it when the attack fails..

      And yet Hillary was Secretary of State, a NY Senator, AND a First Lady for 8 years! Her opposition makes up so many lies about her that I can't keep track of them, just like they do Obama. What a bunch of sore loser smear tactics. Bernie is for us!

      Bernie is pro-union so that would be the reason I would go for him over Hilary.  Still a lot of negative things about Hilary is mostly lies. Like Austin said mud slinging

    If you like where the country is currently and where it might be headed then Clinton is the choice. Like President Obama, she'll take her orders from Wall Street and the national security establishment (AKA "military industrial complex"). In exchange she'll e allowed to pass one or two its of progressive legislation; I'm thinking clean energy bill.

    If you want something different, like social reform of healthcare, tax codes, increased wages and less government spending in foreign military affairs then Sanders is the option.

    For either candidate, clean energy will probably be a priority.
