    For example Mrs. Clinton has proposed free public college for the vast majority of people, lowering the age for medicare to 55 and making all your dreams come true. But if congress doesn't pass these things they don't happen.
    So what's the story with Congress? Which way do you see that jumping? Because from outside it looks like your best result would be a deadlock? President from one party and Congress dominated by the opposition?

    Cheers for that,mste. I have to admit that it seems like a choice between the frying pan and the fire. I am really glad that I am not involved in it other than as an innocent bystander.

    2016 Republican National Convention Platform

    2016 Democratic National Convention Platform

    These platforms are binding on neither the presidential nominees nor any party member running for any office at any level. Their production can be, nevertheless, quite contentious during the conventions.
    Cheers mate. So basically the US isn't going to know for sure till who ever gets elected tells them?

    This election really comes down to who is likely to be worse
    Worst case scenarios
    Trump: 4 years of dysfunctional government coupled with gaffes of various sorts
    Clinton: 4 years of endemic corruption coupled with needless foreign wars
    I'll take the former....

    I think Hillary's policy is:


    Vote For Hillary!




    And no one gets hurt.
