Personally, i find it comes down to 2 things , Trump's perceived incompetency, and Hillary's perceived corruption.

People fear trump because "he is a SJW term-phobe", which is retarded, but there's rational things like his perceived constant bankruptcy. Defending that, somewhere i read that he has something like 10,000 businesses. For only 4 to fail is impressive, but i don't know his portfolio so i won't say i know much.

Some say his bankruptcies are corporate corruption and embezzlement or whatever, which is ironic because people might whail on trump about it yet when someone like martin shkreli or other shadier figures pull shady stuff, they seem to not be noticed as trump is for what he only allegedly did.

He does have some crap policy plans, but compared to what Hillary has in store?

If there's a specific plan i found appealing it's removing the "Obamacare" act. Unnecessary act, braindead execution, wasted taxpayer moneez. Knowing hillary wants to keep it, that's enough justification for a trump preference.

Now i won't say anything good about hillary, but I'd say she is much more corrupt and more desperate than Trump for voter appeal to youngin's, whereas Trump's campaign has cut the BS and is just appealing to an actual demographic (that is, the demographic of every person) from what I have seen. Note i mean trump's campaign ads or campaign items, not necessarily interviews or speeches (like that recent pence/hillary Iraq vote busyness).

As for corrupt, she got away with breaching national security. Snowden did that and had to exile, nope Hillary gets a pass. Not even a pardon. Complete cancer.

All that said, if i could have a candidate that was trying to be a president, not just trying to get into office, that wound be great. And for me, i think the person trying to be a president is trump moreso than hillary.

But both are extremely cringe to think about being in office. I'll probably cast my vote for an Independent.

Way I look at it, Hillary is a career politician who knows how to work the system. She'll make modest gains and not completely screw shit up.

Trump is a complete unknown. Has no political experience whatsoever. We have no clue what his actual executive abilities are. He is a complete wildcard and that is terrifying.

Trump isn't an unknown. Economists already think his presidency will cause quite a bit of damage. We also know his policies on immigration and have a good idea how he'll damage our international relations. He's clearly anti-NATO as well, given how much resistance he's putting against even the most minor Republican platform plank of indirectly and economically opposing Russia in Ukraine.

Media narrative here is pretty lazy, tbh. There's a lot of stuff they ignore about Trump and Clinton just to get better ratings, because more nuance will make the race way less exciting.

98% of economists thought there will be no recession in late 2000s.

And it's so scary, if Trump mentions radical Islamic terrorism then ISIS will be mad at the US! The damage he can cause to international relations! Not so with Crooked Hillary. Her campaign is financed with Saudi money so she clearly has the international edge.

Economists also predicted that the U.K would fall into an apocalyptic great depression after Brexit, but the U.K seems to be holding on.

Not going to say anything one way or the other about Trump's policies, but I've noticed a pattern of Economists foretelling gloom and doom if so-and-so is elected. The end result is much less dramatic 95% of the time.

Uh their economy fell hard and has yet to recover, Eklipse.

It was also a global shock, too. The Dow fortunately recovered but the GBP:USD ratio and the British stock markets have yet to. We just had that small surge when the Bank of England chief made his reassurances, but nothing near enough to cover all that lost ground. Companies like Airbus are moving, taking jobs with them. Others are moving their European headquarters to Frankfurt, Amsterdam, even Dublin.

This is all before they even start the EU withdrawal process. Economists are also exactly the people that got us out of nearly every economic collapse.

That's Greenspan. Not economists at large. Depression wasn't created by economists; the downsides of speculative investing were understood by that point. But even then economists have gotten better since 1929.

And economic consensus is almost always correct.

First of all, I have to support knyte in here. He´s clearly the one being way more realistic
than MGSB.

Also, I can only encourage the USA to leave the NATO. Russia is doomed to hell since the end
of the Second Worldwar, tough they ain´t any worse than the USA. With USA leaving the NATO,
that won´t change. At least there could be one nation having a rehab and stop judging
other nations if they ain´t any better.

Third, Hillary is corrupt as shit and has hold speeches for million and billion of dollars.
Speeches can be good, but not that good. She sacked in the money from the Wall Street and
didn´t stand up against corruptcy instead. I´d be done with her if I were American.

Fourth, Trump might not be that worse. He leads an enterprise and thus can help the
American economy since he brings in experience in that zone.

Fifth, Trump is a racist, yes, tough that does not mean he can do everything that he wants.
The president of the USA ain´t God and is not immortal. He´ll surely be limited by the
USA´s constitution. He´ll also never built a wall towards Mexico since he as an entrepeneur
knows best that the USA needs the Mexicans for the low-payed-jobs which the Americans don´t
want to do ( such as charlady, et cetera ...)

So all in all, Trump might be a wildcard but if I´d have the vote between him and an
American Angela Merkel then I´d choose Trump every time.

P.S. You don´t want Angela Merkel as president/chancellor/prime minister or whatever.
She is worse. 11 years of her destructive reign are enough, and next year she will
hopefully not get reelected. That would be a real nightmare. I ain´t joking.

It fell, but not nearly to the level that scaremongers were screeching about prior to the event. We live in a time where an Arabian prince getting a concussion can lead to surging oil prices and market faltering (Yes, I'm exaggerating there but it's sadly not far from the truth). The market is fragile and jumps up and down all the time, but rarely do market drops lead to long-term economic destruction.

And economic consensus is almost always correct.

Predicting global economy is more like predicting the weather. There's too many variables that are unpredictable/can't be seen to get a full picture. They're in the ballpark usually, but inevitably they will be wrong at times.

In my opinion at least,
Also I`ll be the first
to say that it`s ridicu-
lous to use such a random character;;
there`s so many but you use
"`" as an apostraphe?

Fourthly are you-
high?

All in all it`s silly in my-
opinion
also it is not your English...

P.S.

Also, how is this about English in the first place? Starting a new paragraph each sentence [...] has absolutely nothing to do with your mother tongue. It's silly in any language.
