    How many think America is doomed for 4 years no matter who wins the US 2016 elections?

    In short - yes.  The two major party candidates are awful.  Most people voting in the primaries chose poorly, leaving the country with no good option.  I'll vote for a presidential candidate, but I won't be a party to electing either of these duds.

    How many think America is doomed for 4 years?

    I doubt even 1. How can something be doomed for only 4 years? It is either doomed or not. Doomed means likely to have an unfortunate and inescapable outcome; ill-fated. If America be doomed to an inescapable outcome then there is no coming back after 4 years.

    But I would say there are a lot of moral people who would say America has been doomed for many years starting with the administration of George Bush senior and is simply spiraling down to its inevitable, inescapable end no matter who gets elected from here on out.

    America has drifted too far to the left and just like the failure of every socialist and communist government, America, no matter who is president, is doomed, doomed by a dumbed down education system resulting in a dumbed down electorate, a corrupt and immoral media complex, politicians and government officials who are incompetent at everything, even lying, which they do on a daily basis and everybody knows it.

    Today's America is and has been on the wrong track for many years and no one or two terms of any conceivable candidate for president can turn it around, only delay the inevitable, not because of any candidate's policies but basically because the core of the country, "we the people" have become "we the people want more at any cost."

      U seem to think I don't believe in Trump,I do,I'm giving him the chance by voting for him.But the country,just look at it,it is so bad,so divided,no 1 man no matter what he accomplishes can stop the evil onslaught of liberalism,RRcouldn't.

      DT can "delay the inevitable" as DTMB says.  I suggest that the inevitable will be delayed only a very short time.....VERY short.

    I'm non-American. So forgive me for saying this.

    When G.W. Bush was elected, many in my region fretted. Some rather pedantic journalists also wrote lengthy and grim articles. Well, it was no joy ride. The whole world felt the repercussions of Bush's decisions. But the world didn't end, right? Neither did America.

    And so I don't think America would be doomed be it Trump or Hilary elected. You're a strong nation with plenty of heritage and resilience. You'd survive.

    I'm not looking forward to the outcome of this election. This is definitely a case of choosing the lesser of two evils. It really is history in the making.

      History, we have always chosen the lesser of two evils, and that didn't help.
      There is no mystery if you vote for Clinton.

    The only positive change is Trump, otherwise Garbage In Garbage Out and that has been the result of the professional politicians worth since the 70s. The country hit bottom in 2008 because the politicians drove it there. Neither party has the solutions but both parties contribute to the problems.

    The ideology of dem and rep is diametrically opposite so how can that be a plan for any positive results. The object of both parties is to nullify the gains of the other party. This has been verified in US history.

    The conditions that brought down the US in 2008 are still there, the difference that we don't have the real estate bubble to puff up the economy. So we have little to no buffer to protect the economy.

    Both political parties have visibly shown their puppet strings on the loyal party members. The facade that the US is a democracy of the people has been shattered. US is a partyocracy, and which ever party is in control so goes the Cracy.

    Without Trump the parties are in stasis, and with Trump they are vulnerable to control by the people.

    They abhor but covet their loyal party voters. It is like breeding rabbits for dinner.

    This year is a once in a lifetime chance for people to run the party.
    If it doesn't happen the decline continues, and right now we are like a hover craft floating on a few inches of air.

    Anyone that thinks an election without Trump is good, better understand the word Doom in relation to the US and its future.

      True,but we shouldn't fool ourselves.Reagan changed the path Democrats put the country on but it didn't take long until Bush &the rest of the RINOs&liberals in congress undid everything Reagan did.Won't be any different after DT.

      Why do you say that about DT, he doesn't have a track record as a politician?

      Brad, I'm not saying that about DT, likened him to Reagan, what I'm saying is if Reagan couldn't permanently turn the country from the path it was on when he took over the presidency neither can Trump,no matter what good he does.

    I don't think America is doomed. But what I do feel is that we have become so immoral that it will take a great movement to bring us back to the center. But when I read comments that are made about the Bush years as being the blame I find that highly inaccurate. Moral decay began  under the clintons.And the housing collapse did not happen because of Bush it happened because of what Clinton signed into law. This is another reason I hate to see Hillary Clinton win the White House she is not for anyone but the rich she's going to do whatever it takes to protect the immoral application of the filthy rich.And that would be the only job she is interested in. We have not had a president for the since the early eighties. And all that America has had is Patsy for the United Nations. And as far as I am concerned Obama will go down as the worst president in US history. Twin sister Hillary in his footsteps. And the only thing she is going to do is raise taxes and make us start paying for their political mistakes. Reagan was the last decent president America had. I'm willing to accept our fate but I don't have to like it. And it's not just America that would be doomed it is a world coming under the Judgment seat of the creator the Bible is coming true and everyone can turn a blind eye but they better wake up soon. War is coming to this world and they're not going to like the outcome but that would be our own fault. War-mongering rich and their days are just about over.

      We have had bad presidents for the last 28 years, both democrat and republican. We have been in wars since the end of WWII and we lost them all, and we are still losing today. At the root cause of all of this is the loyal party voter
