Unfortunately I am not allowed to vote though
What really pisses me off about your post is that Dr. Ron Paul's name could be substituted for Trumps and the post would still be true.
I am telling you that whether Russia and the US escalate tensions is not something that either Hillary or Trump will have any say in, what so ever. Like all major conflicts in living memory, if it happens at all it will be at the behest of powers far greater than the leaders of the US or Russia have at their disposal.
As for your utterly ignorant approach to gender issues, that is a matter for you, although I would caution that dismissing things you do not understand, simply because you do not understand them, is not a mark of wisdom.
You should be very concerned that taxes you paid helped fund and train ISIS
You should also be concerned that so many people, including yourself, remain willfully ignorant of that fact, as well as being absolutely appalled at the idea of taking responsibility for the conduct of those we have elected, whose meddling and gamesmanship, whose avarice for oil and resources, not to mention for security and military contracts, has been more important to them, as it always is, than doing the right things with our tax money.
You should be concerned about all of that, but you should not be concerned that your neighbours have Arabic names, or that there are men in traditional Muslim dress in your locality, nor that there are people from different ethnic backgrounds living and working near you.
ignore the responsibility of greedy political and financial institutions
My enemies are those who give power to the elite by agreeing to accept their programming, rather than combating it and uniting together to prevent money being used to influence policy in government, by replacing government with representation that works, not just folk who have pushed paper their whole career, and never ACTUALLY worked a day in their lives.
My enemies are those who cannot accept immigrants into their communities.

But those same tax breaks are available to all - or don't you believe in equality.
Your objecting to the fact that he makes more money than you.
You think your nation had nothing to do with the War On Terror? I think you are talking rot, because the EU government had a fair bit to do with it, as have the intelligence agencies of every western nation. They operate in packs, as if you did not know, and largely without proper oversight from the representatives of the people they are supposed to protect. But whatever, I suppose your nation is the only exception to that?
We did not lose the Brexit vote. Contrary to popular opinion, the vote was not carried exclusively by knuckle dragging xenophobes, although there are many of them around this place these days, to our shame as a nation. The vote was carried by those of us who realise that our initial membership was not ratified by the people prior to our joining, rendering the membership void in the first place, owing to clauses in various documents from yesteryear, guaranteeing the people the right to decide before any choice is made on their behalf in matters pertaining to transfer of lawmaking power, or having any power than their own wielded over them. It was carried by people who wanted our nations corporatist government, separated from the corporatist support network that the EU actually is.
My intention is to see the Conservative party thrown out of government at the next election

Speak for yourself...and your own definition of "success"..
Are you going to provide a definition with which to apply to the dictionary?
When you amass billions, provide jobs for tens of thousands,
Less than a third of eligible voters actually voted for them.
Our current government essentially, should not be in power, because they won no mandate what so ever to claim the power they currently wield.
The Labour Party is under new management, and next time we go to the ballot box, I have a firm belief that we will see a polar shift in the politics of this country, away from the harmfully intolerant right, toward an inclusive and people powered left.
I don't have a dog in this fight, but I am told Trump is anti Establishment, although some say he is more Establishment than Hillary, so all the negative comments within the MSM is the price for wanting to change things within the Establishment.
One thing I found interesting watching the BBC the other night, is a seasoned politico working in the Whitehouse warned that Trump is unchangeable. In other words the Establishment will not be able to change him or his opinions.
But I have been saying all along that Hillary will win, the Bilderbergs have spoken and she must be crowned.

Its not so much which party is in place, but which policies and direction are being followed and suggested.
Personally speaking, Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party could correct the balance that has been sliding away from people powered politics, and toward corporate consumption of government for a very long time, such a long time that a working person currently has no right to earn enough to live on, to pay rent, to pay for heat or light, let alone save anything for their future, not even a little bit, even if they work like dogs.
This slide has been happening for years, since before Tony Blair was PM. It needs to stop.
is either truly better when you consider that neither addresses the true problem?
It would do my forefathers no honour, to allow anything but an increase in freedom from economic oppression, greater equity between people. Essentially, where one of us has found themselves absent their rights, all of us must react as if we ourselves had none, until all DO have their rights, because unless everyone has the same freedoms, none of us have any.
