    Horrible choices... Trump would edge out Clinton for me but I'm not voting for either of them.

      Hi Mackenzie, thank you for participating here.  Yes, it is tough choice no doubt, but still one must be best for our country to defend against our enemies ...

      Without a doubt he would say Hillary; just ask his sister.

      What is she, clairvoyant? Why not ask you, from your answers you sound like a clairvoyant too.

      Don't need to be clairvoyant, just observant and an avid reader of current events.  People are allowed to draw reasonable conclusions from the data available.

      I guess Stevens' sister doesn't want to wake up dead like her brother... "YEAH, GO HILLARY!!!"

      EM yeah but from your comments it is obvious you censor the data available and only consider what suits your point of view. Behavior indicative of deceitful motivation.

      I think Chris' mother said all that needed to be said in her wise and intelligent letter to the editor of the NY Times.  I prefer to follow her example.

      Hi Nudely, that would be interesting to note.

      @Genna, that is a good point you have there.

    I would say Trump because of his action he shows proof to do things and he is  active, and I believe he can do things more than he says. He has faith and not afraid to say whatever he wants and it will help him defend the country from enemies.

      Hi Mhorvena, I appreciate your participation in this question.  Yes, he certainly states whatever is own his mind.  We do need someone who is able to state the obvious as to our enemies.

    If you don't vote you give up your right to say any thing. I know that if anyone of us had done what Hillary or Bill did we would be so deep in prison that everyone would forget our names.  Why can they do our country the way they have and still hold office? If she will lie about what she did while acting on the USA behalf what makes you think she will do anything different if she got the highest position in our country. We kicked out Nixon for doing things that were against the law.  Why are the Clintons any different?  Why was Bill Clinton able to be impeached and still stay in as president.  We have already had 8 years of Hillary Clinton why do you want 4 more? The Demarcates have shown had bad they can mess up the country so lets let Republicans make our country great again.

      Hi Florence, Thank you for sharing your perspective.  Those are certainly some concerns to consider as to trust issues and following the law. It does seem there are always those who have a Get out of Jail card ...

      I doubt Republicans would be any better, but you're right about Hillary. Here are some of her lies from the last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YunIdTQ4HS8 . Loyal Democrats just put their fingers in their ears. Thankfully, most Americans care

      My Esoteric's apologies for the Clinton's becomes tiring. We know what sort of people Mark Rich, Web Hubbell, the FLAN terrorists, Trie, Huang, Hsu, and many others are, or were. Her US uranium deal/swindle is all one needs to know about this menace.

      Truth and logic does not equal "apology", it equals reason.  Why aren't you condemning the other 8 non-State Dept officials who approved the Uranium deal?  What has any of those other names you dropped have to do with Clinton criminal behavior?  None

      The other names show "birds of a feather." Hill / Obama made concession to Putin with uranium rights thru Canadian intermediary. How is this in US best interest? Regardless of "legality" CRIME. Like TV sharks promise God's bounty for $29.95 - CRIME

    I tire of people asking questions framed as though we have to chose one of two corrupt political parties. The system only works that way because a majority of people allow it to. When we stop asking which of the two evils we will choose, neither will be chosen and another candidate, who isn't repulsive, can be chosen.

    To answer your specific question; First, I'm going to assume all diplomatic options would have already been exhausted, as war is something I only see as last resort. I don't trust either of these two candidates to defend, or even represent our country abroad. Trump seems to be hungry to attack anyone who insults us (which is not only foolish, but immature). Keeping ones cool against perceived insult is as important in critical decision making as seeing patterns is. Trump is not displaying these qualities in his campaign. Hillary has shown complete lack of integrity. She's hired the disgraced head of the DNC who was found manipulating votes and information. That fact alone would be enough for me to doubt her honesty in sharing details of war with the people. I would never be able to believe the motivation behind an attack on our "enemies". Add the email scandal and her connection with major corrupt corporate entities; I wouldn't trust her with anything, let alone the lives of thousands of people.

    I will not be voting for either one.

    By the way, I like that you picked more flattering photos of both candidates. Most people seem to mock both or favor one.

    1. Faith Reaper profile image85
      Faith Reaperposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Hi kwade, Yes, the question is posed as if one will vote for one or the other; that is true. You've expressed important concerns about each candidate for sure. You're the first to mention about my choice of photos and why. Very observant of you!

    2. Dont Taze Me Bro profile image59
      Dont Taze Me Broposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      kwade don't you think that your vote should be considering what is at stake beyond the personalities and character of these two?We know Hillary will appt liberal judges,Trump won't.More than character their policies are up for vote.

      The prob, DTMB, is that Trump has talked like a Democrat for all his adult life. Google a short youtube vid Trump Tapes Volume 1 . Dubya and Schwrtznggr in CA campaigned like Consrvtvs but then reigned like Libs. DON'T TRUST REPS AND DEMS. THEY LIE!

      I can't disagree with u nudely, but Reagan was a democrat most of his life before he became a republican.People can change,Trump was never in public service as a democrat.It seems he changed because he could see that liberalism has failed.

      Nudelyposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Reagan was no paragon of virtue as Repblcn... big deficit spender, amnesty, breaking promise (i.e. LIED) not to negotiate with Iran, etc. but DID lower tax rates which brought in more revenue... mixed bag there. Not my idol, but better than most.

      I never said Reagan was a paragon of virtue,did I?Why did you change the subject from the fact a democrat or Trump can (many have) wake up and become a republican to Reagan's record?Is it because I am right & u don't want to admit it?  smile

      You implied Reagan changed. My point was he didn't. OK, he was a D and then changed to R, but he acted like a D in most of his actions, and like an R in few. I DO NOT TRUST Trump to good example of R. Seems now he wants amnesty 4 illegals. Vot4Johnsn

    I would definitely trust Trump over the Clinton.  Hillary has more health, credibility, and leadership issues than any other candidate of 2016.  Trump may not be the brightest crayon in the box, but as a businessman, he has a vested interest in America and its people.  Hillary has the Vanguard Group (controlled by foreign interests), Wall Street (now mostly controlled by foreign interests), and The Clinton Foundation (primarily funded by foreign interests.)   To the best of my knowledge, Mr. Trump never begged for foreign money to get himself elected to anything.  He is smart enough to not handle his business via his  private email server.  He would be more respected as a leader in foreign eyes (respected by the people who work for a living, rather than those who live off the people who work for a living.)  The credibility of American leadership, freedom, and economic security has been steadily undermined since the mid 1990s, with the last eight years being the worst. This country needs something totally opposite of the status quo.

      You actually believe that health malarkey?  Maybe you would be happier if PBO had done what the GOP wanted and let the economy sink into a depression which is where GWB left it.
