    Who do you believe is THE WORST of the TWO EVILS as far as presidential candidates go? Why?

    The two evils are the Democrat and Republican Parties. They have opened their Kimono too far this time and we see their ugly scheming to circumvent the voters. The problem is that many of the loyal party voters are too loyal or too dumb to notice or care.

    Is used to be "We the People", but today it is "We the Party".
    Artificially trying to narrow down the candidates we have to choose from is like a magician with a conjuring card trick. You always pick the card the magician wants you to pick. The party elite are doing the same thing but now we can see in slow motion what they are doing. Many people don't care, others are happy to not believe it, and a handful are outraged.

    Both parties, Although the democrat party plotted even before the election it was Clinton. The republican party didn't have a clue that Trump would knock out their picks. So they had to come up with some blocks and diversions on the run. They would rather throw the election to the democrats than support Trump.

    Bernie Sanders also fooled the party when he got so much voter support. But at least he is not throwing the election to the republicans.

    The worst thing in elections is the loyal party voter. They think voting for a better candidate in the other party is treason. The parties use the loyal party voter to give them the worst candidates knowing they will be loyal to the party no matter what they give them.

    It has been elections of the lesser of two evils for a very long time, and the winners of the elections have proved how wrong those choice have been looking at the results and the state of the country.

    We need better candidates to run for the presidency, and we need the party voters to demand that from their party, or get the other party to do it.

    Loyalty is OK for rooting for your local sports team, but we only have one team, called congress and one coach we call the president. When the players on the team fail, the team loses and it doesn't really matter which party failed. The game is lost. Unfortunately, this is the game of life, not sports.

      Well said and true.  This one time around we have a real outsider who is offering what so many of us have been looking for, if nothing more than a chance to thumb our noses at the insiders and the Clinton Democrat Dynasty (oh yes, Chelsea is running)

      I agree, as we know what Hillary will do, but we hope that Trump will do what he has promised to do.
