There is certainly a problem with US democracy. Trump vs Clinton speaks volumes, I believe.
If Trump and Clinton are the best presidential candidates America has to offer then US politics has reached its nadir.
Trump apparently doesn't want to win and is making fun of the whole process. There's no other reasonable way to interpret his behaviour, unless he is actually insane - is Trump a manipulator of the US voting public or is he insane? The jury's still out on this, I think.
So what does America do now? - vote for its next president.
precipitate the end of civilisation - please elaborate.
Vote for the crook not the fascist - oh, the agony of choice! Deary me.
Although I'm not sure how dangerous Trump could be as prez, I view Trump as unfit for high office. I certainly would never vote for him. But I couldn't see myself voting for Hillary either. Are there any decent independent candidates running for president?
