I cannot believe that after "Trudeau the scammer" we have Hillary as the saviour of America!
Talk about short attention deficit disorder!
Holy shit ; in this day of complete moral and ethical decay we look to the sewer and sift between the shit for this turd.
Trump is an asshole who would take the US public into financial and moral decay but he is for an insular America quite unlike the warmonger Clinton.
Put your money into arms suppliers when Clinton wins!!

This is a sad election for the US. Just sad. What it all boils down to is basically a class vote. People with nothing to lose, vs people with something to lose, as somebody aptly described in a comment to a blog post (Somewhere in this mess.

People with nothing to lose will vote Trump or not vote at all. People with something to lose will vote Hilary.

People voting Trump will look at Hilary, and understand she's the old system. They'll continue being losers under her government.

So, they'll cast a vote Trump's way, because there might be a chance he'll shake things up. It might not be a good shake up. In fact, it might be more awful than the current status quo, but it's change.

It's as though a society can develop a sort of mental illness, a sort of Apotemnophilia. They'd happily cut off their own nose to spite their face.

@ TB - I support Hillary for one reason. The next president may wind up choosing four justices of the US Supreme Court. In America with its politicized (i.e. corrupted) judiciary this election is critical.

@ Troy - "Apotemnophilia" - you had me there. But yes I have your point and there does seem to be at least one mass psychosis at play in this election.

I've just finished Nancy Isenberg's new book, "White Trash," which explores four centuries of classism in America. The Republicans have flirted with the White Trash vote for several electoral cycles but this is the first in which that group has effectively commandeered the GOP to the horror of the Republican establishment.

It should be fascinating to watch what happens to the GOP in the months following the election.
