    I've been keeping close eye on the American elections and must say if that one person gets in I feel for all

    That one?! Heck, both of them I feel for us all. One more than another - but still.

    and that's as much of a political debate I get into.

    One candidate scares the heck out of me, the other seems a better choice.

    Following the British Brexit fiasco all I can say is, be careful about protest votes, think carefully if not voting will end up with the candidate you don't want getting in.

    Skipping is the worst thing to do.
    Everyone who has the right to vote should exercise that right.
    Brexit showed what happens otherwise and sadly, the US election and their outcome affect all of us, not only US citizens...and I fear for the world if Trump wins (there, I said the name).
    I know HRC is far from perfect but given the choice between these two.....I would pick the lesser (sexist, racist) evil.

    Both options are horrible.

    I vote for the meteor.

    I think we should have the option of "none of the above" with an addition of "redo both parties conventions so we have decent choices." IMO, Trump is only looking out for himself and will have us in a world war in under 6 months, and Hillary doesn't have enough common sense to hold any office after the fiasco of her being Secretary of State.

    Hillary is pure evil. If she gets in, say good bye to the United States as we have known it.

    I agree there should be a "None of the above" option and a complete re-do of the vote. I refuse - flat out refuse - to vote for a criminal or a con man. Flat out refuse. To think that anyone thinks either is acceptable makes me sad for humanity in general.
