    What is your greatest fear of a Trump presidency?

    War. His demeanor towards anyone that does not agree with him is terrifying. He does not act as you would expect a Presidential Candidate to carry himself. My fear is Civil War first because disagreeing or protesting against him and his hateful rhetoric gets you punched and arrested. Imagine the power his supporters would feel if he won... Second, WWIII. Many countries have voiced their concerns over his speeches and his unknown plans. Communities deliberate if they should ban him or not! His fictional knowledge of counterterrorism is only hurting the US. He has no knowledge of Diplomacy... I could go on and on. He is dangerous!

      I think he would be militant.  Yes, he would probably go to war.  The reality is that we are going to have World War III no matter who is in office. Civil war would also be scary, and a possibility.

      Did you think that Obama would be a good president? If you did look at the country today, The same problems that existed in 2008 are still present today. 46 million people are on food stamps.

      I did think Obama would be a good president and he has been. He has done the best he could under the circumstances. If he could have done better he could. Two words. Corrupt congress.

    My greatest fear is that he gets in the Oval Office and realizes he doesn't have a clue as to what to do, or decides he doesn't want to do it.  That he hires people to do the work for him, and does nothing himself.  Wouldn't it be scary if he were running all this time just to win, and isn't really thinking about what the job actually entails?

      Trump has more experience and accomplishments then did Senator Barack Obama. Looking back over the last fifty years are definition  of qualified resulted in a decline that continues today. The feud betw the parties is more of the problem.

    The fact that no one will ever take us seriously again.

    If there's enough people in a country to back someone like Trump and actually have him become president, then there's simply no reason why the world shouldn't collectively view us  as class A idiots for the rest of eternity.

      It's too late.  I think we past that point back when Bush Jr. was president.

      Empty statements like that without any factual reference would make us look foolish even at the local grade school. The world has its own problems. Do you have any words of substance. The two parties are the real problem.

      To you specifically Brad I've already given the substance. Others have as well. Every time we do, you dip out of the conversation. Odd...

      Though you aren't wrong about the 2 party system being a problem.

    I recommend listening to the audiobook "Why Nations Fail", that would explain my fear of anybody holding the office of the Presidency that has increasingly greater power with each person holding it. It talks about 'The Virtuous Circle' and 'The Vicious Circle'  - it says that leaders who impoverish their country don't do it because they are stupid or the blame lies with the culture. They do it on purpose to keep themselves in power and money.

    As Niccolo Machiavelli said, "One who deceives will always find those who allow themselves to be deceived."

    Sanders said that he would use executive orders to change things that Congress refuses to work on.

    James Madison in 1793 warns of executive aggrandizement and I'm  worried that Drumpf would go hog wild with EO's more so than Sanders abusing EO's

      Well Machiavelli must have known the people of congress and the presidents since the 1960s because they all fit his statement.

    DT would be a totally incompetent and disastrous president if American voters are ignorant enough to nominate and, heaven forefend, elect him. He is like a bull in a china shop. He's good at insulting people (he's done it for years) but my greatest fear (which I feel would be likely if he were ever elected president) is an atomic war within my llifetime (and I'll be 80 in May.)

      Where does your personal opinion rate any credibility? There is absolutely nothing in your comment to verify, or even associate as a fact. We are here today result of 2 parties that can't run the country because of loyal party voters just following

      I can't believe people can't see through DT -- an obvious charlatan who clearly became a "candidate" just to get headlines to promote his "brand."  It's not the political parties that are the problem it's the huge corporations (monopolies.)

    I have ZERO respect for wealthy people who can't handle money.  This is a billionaire who has filed for bankruptcy FOUR TIMES!!!  The US is already operating at a deficit; if he takes over, he will probably turn us into a third world country!

      We're already heading there.  Trump would not be the catalyst.

      We owe trillions of dollars to China, and Trump made it back 5 times while the US never made it back. Your opinion is as worthless as the US dollar Maybe if you had some facts to back up your assertions.

      "Your opinion is as worthless as the US dollar." Sounds like you need to go on a shopping spree in Syria. Their pound is worth $0.0045 USD. Google it for yourself.

      Certainly, I also think so. Trump will make USA a third world country. He has a fake patriotism making the American fool.None can do nothing to him as he has dollars and dollars.

    I would be in total shock.  And fear that we are about to go backwards in regards to equality and social justice...
