There have to be some anxious interns working in the White House right now.

And that's why I slightly prefer Trump over Clinton. You can just always sense that she is hiding something or not telling the full truth; her words are too calculated and too rehearsed for them to seem honest, IMO. Trump lets his words slip out too easily sometimes but he's very honest. But geez he is a dangerous man.. up there with Putin I reckon.

In the past people like Trump and for that matter Hanson would passed over as zealots. However through the aggressive push towards Political Correctness and the erosion of social liberties, these once labelled Zealots, now have the ear of a good portion of the population that are totally fed up to the eye balls with a media controlled political machine that bends and sways with the popular breeze.

I know I for one have had it with self proclaimed Gods telling us how to speak, think, and feel. I am over the righteous few sitting in judgement of the majority.

Does this mean I would vote for Donald. No. When you have the ability to put one finger on the red button, you probably want somebody that is a little more predictable than the Trump.

Anyway, like Obama, neither will be able to do anything without long negotiations with Congress.

My analogy has always been that Trump is like a mud terrain tyre on a 4WD. In the majority of circumstances it is a crap tyre but when you are deep in it, putting one on MIGHT just get you out. It'll be messy but it might work. Hillary is just a regular run of the mill road tyre. Smooth, slick and brilliant when on a great track but will only dig you deeper when already in the mud and then when you do opt for a mud tyre down the track it'll be even messier than opting for it early.
Fact is whoever gets in things are going to be messy for a while. Question is what situation are we in and how long will the mess last?

This is a widespread concern with Trump. It has come up a lot in the past few months.

Yes CF hysteria rains supreme when misinformation invades the ears of the mindless.

I said one finger, because that is all it is. I could be wrong, but from what I have read you need three keys all in the possession of three different individuals who are never in close proximity to one and other. So not an easy thing to organise let alone deliver.

It doesn't change the reason people are flocking to fundamentalism and nationalistic zealots. The wider community can see the erosion of liberties under the guise of political correctness. This is why it is easy for Trump, and Hanson for that matter, to play on fear and popular thought. There is also the fact that we are all over career politicians who have absolutely no idea of what is happening in the real world making decisions that effect us all but leaves themselves in a better position.

I don't think I have ever seen a time when politics worldwide has been so devoid of real thought and action. It is very difficult not to feel the weight of doom at the moment.

I had a chuckle yesterday when Hillary said Donald is healthy as a horse and he smiled and clapped then she said like the horse that Vladimir Putin rides .lol
Not happy the way Aussie politics is at the moment ,But I feel better than the USA choice for sure.

If Trump is President, we then have another reality show, Politician Apprentice.

All contestants must past certain tasks in getting the country up an running, and those who do not pass get taken into the Oval Office and then "You're Fired".

Trump's running mate Mike Pence's campaign plane has skidded off the runway at LaGuardia Airport. No injuries.

Tbh, I reckon Michelle Obama should've gone for president. Everyone seems to love her.

With Hillary now under investigation yet again her winning margin may not be as large as some think it will be.

Maybe, but I think the possible consequences are too dire to consider. Therefore, nah.

I can't quite work out which one would be worse to be honest. I have a horrible feeling the consequences of either one getting in will be dire.
