A clear choice...

I hate disagreeing with an Internet graphic, but I'm gonna have to.

That graphic euphemistically describes Trump, not accurately.

He's a huckster and has been one for more than 30 years. He's left a trail of bankruptcies and bribed pols behind.

I'd say our choice is between being punched by Manny Pacquiao (Hillary!) and being punched by an unknown person.

Sure the unknown puncher is unlikely to punch harder than Manny, but what if the unknown puncher is Mike Tyson?

I'm voting for Trump and, surprisingly, actually rooting for him, but I've thought he was a huckster since I first noticed him in the 80s, I can't pretend he isn't one now.

I will say that I think he has a much better chance than our fine betters in the media would have us believe.

I agree completely. Trump is a different breed of cat.

Bankruptcy is a part of modern business. Sad, but true. The US, being 20 trillion in debt (over half added during the current administration), is for all intents and purposes, bankrupt. (Morally and ethically too...) Or worse. I watched an argument between a couple of my friends on Fb the other day regarding the repudiation of our debt. It was a passionate argument, one saying it would happen, the other saying "no way". I think it will happen. Maybe not under Trump, but at some point. Not sure there is a viable choice.

Repudiate, or submit to the whims of the world. :)

For me, it boils down to what I know about the personal traits of them. Trump is teachable, Hillary is not. As in Hillary will refuse to listen to logic and go her own way, as she has demonstrated many times in the past. Trump is stubborn, but will change his mind given the time to learn more.

Then there is ethics, or lack of ethics. Hillary wins this hands down - no morals whatsoever, say anything to get elected. I hope Trumps asks her on why legislation for pushing women's wages was not addressed in the eight year term her husband had. What was the name of the bill that failed to get the vote - oh yeah, no bill was ever introduced. Why was that Hillary ?
