    What is the WORST plan that our presidential candidates have presented so far? on any issue?

    Which candidate is presenting the worst plan or plans ever as far as running the country? State the actual issue and the candidate's plan to rectify the issue. No hate speech will be allowed. Stick to the facts, with references if possible.

    I will say the worst plan is Bernie Sanders offering free college to all. This will bankrupt our treasury and will do little to help with the poor employment situation.

      He wants to move some of the war chest money to pay for some free college. No, not for people who can pay their way, just for people who can't afford college. But i guess you prefer using your tax money to bomb foreign countries instead?

      Everyone knows budget in Washington doesn't work that way. Once a program is initiated, it never goes away. Even Hillary is against this proposal. Yes, I do believe in a strong national defense but not to bomb but to provide peace through strength.

      I'm a product of California's virtually free college education system in the late 70s and early 80s. I paid minimal fees to go to both a community college and a university. It can be done, and it should be done. Education shouldn't be for profit!

      I was also a product of free college in NYC in the early 1970s. However, there was one important difference. It was based on merit. Once they implemented open admissions, the quality went down and the cost went up.

      Bernie has plenty of experience dealing with congress and senate, i think he could really change things. What is the Rep plan for improving education and helping students get out of crippling college loan debts?

      Bernie has been in Congress for decades and have done little. The Conservative plan to fix public education is to have charters schools in inner cities and provide vouchers for parents. Check out my hub on "Conservatism Defined" for other solutions.

      I think you need to check Bernie's record again. He has done a great deal over the years. Vouchers for the privileged. Yea, that's going to work, not. Who gets to decide on which vouchers go where?

    Donald Trump's freaking wall. Of all the things that we could do to slow illegal immigration and drugs, it's the most costly, and probably the least effective. No matter how high he builds it, and how deep the foundation goes, determined people will find a way over it, under it, or around it.

      Assuming you want to solve this problem, how would you do it? A wall works, just ask Israel.

      Israel is a very small country. Do you understand how big a US border wall would have to be? It's not feasible and it won't work here. I don't think it's working all that well in the middle east either.

      The great wall of China is over 1000 miles. It is possible given the will. Besides, the legislation was passed a long time ago. The Administrations both Republican and Democratic just didn't want to implement it.

      The great wall of china is a crumbling ruin because it didn't work.

      On the contrary, it worked for what it was intended at the time. It is now just a tourist attraction. It is the only man made structure that can be seen from outer space.

      wow. You really are deluded about things. I can't even begin to tell you how little sense your comment made. "seen from space", really? and no, it didn't work, read the history books.

      Austinstar, it was a joke. It just illustrate the immense and size of the wall. It is the few man-made structure of that caliber. The wall on our southern border is just one part of a slew of actions we can take to stop the in flow.
