    Trump is a misogynistic, racist bigot who's trying to gain control over one of the most powerful positions in the world, the Presidency of the United States and doing so by utilizing his notable celebrity status as well his money.

    He assumed he has enough money to do so, its just a matter to him what appealing theoretical things he can create to allure people and eventually their votes, not paying much astute practicality to what he asserts.

    He's selling himself much like how he promotes and tries to sell his developing property business by appealing to human emotions rather farsighted grounded practicality .

    Even big business is scarred of him and that is usual in itself being that big business has pretty much always supported the Republican party.

    The majority of the public can see through him and the fact he has no governmental experience whatsoever, not exactly the kind of person you want take over the federal government of the United States.

    I would put 7/10 odds that Hilary Clinton will be the next President of the United States in 2016.

    I would vote for a goldfish over Trump.

    Bernie Sanders would have my reluctant vote even though I'm strongly pro-gun as well as believing in a strong military response to ISIS. At least he would raise the minimum wage which is really a major issue in the US.

    Would anyone trust Trump with the code to launch a nuclear weapon ???

    However distasteful Hillary is to many, there is a huge amount of political experience and dealing with other people and countries (First Lady of Arkansas, First Lady of US, Senator, Secretary of State). And of course there is Bill standing on the sidelines and of course offering advice.

    Other than Republican Governor John Kasich, if I voted, it would have to go with Hillary.

    I'd emigrate.Ok, not. I'm hoping someone looks good before Nov next.

    Yes Sanders does have a lot common sense initiatives to help the poor and reestablish the social middle class.

    which has faded so much in the US over recent years.

    If he doesn't make it to the presidency, I hope he gets placed somewhere high in the administration , maybe even

    vice president.

    Sanders identifies himself as a Democratic Socialist. Someone explain, what

    is a DS....

    Socialism is not working in most countries.

    Hmm...not sure. In the past I've quietly rooted for democrats, but lately I have more conservative leanings, however, Trump? No thanks. I'm conservative, not crazy😜.

    Trump's personality is questionable, but no other candidates have what it takes to do anything new or different. ( like enforcing current American Federal law regarding immigration ).

    The current policies do nothing except throw taxpayer money at criminals...
    If you don't think entering another country illegally is NOT a crime, don't bother replying.

    One of the things that helped me first wake up from the JWs was the rewards for bad behavior by illegals. I remember a part being given about a family that toured Bethel. Such a great trip. blah, blah.

    Making a positive example of the criminal is hypocrisy and it infuriates me.

    From Wikipedia:

    "Social democracy is a political ideology that supports economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a capitalist economy..."

    It is working just fine in Denmark and other European countries with a high standard of living.

    Trump for me. The thing I like the best about him is ....because he is using his own money he won't owe any favors to special interest groups.

    He won't have to make Kim Kardashian Secretary of State....... lol ( that is a joke )
