I want Clinton as President

Are we being treated like human beings by our Corporate Captains? Have they heard of the word 'compassion' or is greed the guiding light for them?

But will she do anything to raise the living standards of the average
American or is it simply power, i said before Trump would never be
President.

I doubt she'll raise living standards. She's as much in corporate hands as Republicans. The gap between rich and poor will continue to widen.

I still believe that the wrong lady is the nominee,but maybe Elizabeth Warren could be the VP nomination after all. What chance would Trump have,following this combination around the country?

Watch the introductory speech from Warren in the video. She may just as easily have been talking about Australia. =D> =D> \:D/ \:D/

Yes Slapsy it a world wide repudiation of inequality and
liberal, tory, (bexit)and the republicans in the USA, but
will she take the measures to heal this as labor seeks to
do here in Australia if elected.? :thinking:

Hilarie is not a sure fire bet to win.
Trump is ahead today. Les hope not for long.
Bernie Sanders supporters carry on like petulant sulky kids. Whether or not the fact Snders lost is academic. Under the American system HE LOST. Go to your room!
They need to get behind Clinton or you may as well hand it to Trump.

I wonder how many Americans will just decide,because they don't like either candidate,not to vote.

It's not compulsory, which is why they try to rile the voting public, like Trump is doing.

Yes you are right. Apathy may well deliver Trump victory.
AmericansI know envy the compulsory voting we have here. THere are people like Derryn Hinch who want to get rid of it.

I would be in favour of compulsory voting if the people were able to choose the candidates. The major parties consistently throw up cheats, liars, numbskulls and incompetents and then MAKE US vote for them. Voter apathy and "donkey" voting are growing trends in this country and I can well understand why. 8-[

I am not sure it is possible either, Mavis - I am just railing against compulsory voting when often we have no real choice - we are FORCED to vote when all candidates are of questionable character, have limited or no experience and/or are just dullards. If I dont see a worth candidate, I dont want to vote as my vote will be an endorsement or mandate that I dont want to give.
