57-59% of people view Clinton as unfavorable. 60-63% view Trump as favorable. Yet there is over 99% probability one of them will win the voters’ approval as president. How dumb are Americans? We got caught in this two party trap and can’t seem to get out. Both parties provide a bad candidate and scare us about the calamity if the other guy gets elected. Out of fear, we elect bad politicians and perpetuate a two party system that hurts us.
One huge outcome of this stupidity is national debt currently at almost $20 trillion and consumes almost 1/3 of government budget. National debt has a trend of doubling every 8 years. With Trump/Clinton in office it should reach $30 trillion in another 4 years and consume over half of government spending to maintain. Should the (D) and (R) parties control the government after 2020, we should expect 65-80% of government spending used to service debt, if we have not already defaulted. We are realistically looking the end of Medicare and Social Security and 80% cuts in defense in the next 10 years.
I’ll vote for Johnson because he wants a 20% cut in government spending now and a balanced budget. Trump wants to borrow more now because of low interest rates and hinted at a US bankruptcy to dealing with the debt. Don’t forget building a wall and the military.
I understand if people here don’t like Johnson. Vote Castle or writing in Ron Paul. It is important because it will either 1) make the major parties change their platform to attract those votes in the future or 2) might get us politicians that do not run this country into the ground.
Voting Clinton or Trump is a waste vote. The give us the same outcome: bankruptcy.
