A Forum

I would like this to be a forum for political and social thought. I would like to try to keep it civil. That can be difficult as people, myself included, usually feel strongly about these issues. I will try not to be insulting though insult is often in the eye of the beholder.

Maybe no one will ever read this but me, maybe it will just turn out to be my private journal. We'll see.

America May Be the Loser

 I fear that whichever candidate wins this election it is the American people who will be the losers.
  Should Trump win rather than making us great we will be he laughing stalk of the world.  I fear an economic collapse greater than the Bush's great recession.  Listen to his speeches, they are full of platitudes and short on specifics.  When he does try to be specific he shows himself to be lacking a true understanding of the issues and the facts.
  Should Clinton win it will be four more years of gridlock.  Republicans have promised to again block any initiatives of a democratically elected president not of their own party.  America can not function with another four years of gridlock, we can not continue to be a great nation.  Without a Democrat majority in Congress Clinton's hands would be tied.
 A Republican president and Congress will mean a windfall for the one percent.
 A Democrat president and Republican Congress will mean gridlock with no progress on needed reforms to benefit the middle class.
  Only the unlikely outcome of a Democrat president and Congress will mean  real progress for the American people!
