I really have no dog in this fight, I truly believe the way to solve our problem is when our candidates were employed in the private sector literally last year. I don't mean CEO of xyz Corp. I think we have come to the point where the divide between the poor/middle class/middle to upper class is getting too wide and is getting wider.

With the Clinton's wealth at $125 million and Trump's at $3.7 billion I find it hard to believe they can understand the normal slave to the grind most live in.

China-bashing Trump’s clothing line made in China

Donald Trump has emerged in recent years as the nation’s foremost China basher, going after the Asian superpower for undervaluing its currency and for taking American manufacturing and jobs. So it’s at least ironic — and at most an example of gross hypocrisy — that Trump’s own line of men’s wear, the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection, is manufactured in China.
he urges Americans to buy fewer products from China, claiming that Chinese goods are shoddy and maintaining that, in his own business dealings, he favors American manufacturing over Chinese manufacturing.
All of which makes it a little strange that Trump’s own brand of clothing is made in China.

Trump’s four bankruptcies were Chapter 11 reorganizations (named for its location in federal bankruptcy code), which are designed to restructure businesses without shutting down. Still a concern.

His bashing of Chinese manufactured goods rings as a good ploy to get the voters who refuse to look up any information about how he makes money. Some more do as I say not as I do from our political and business over lords.

Clintons(this isn't brief)( Bill and Hillary's net worth are intermingled in and complete and udderly instinctual regulatory and speaker free dollar making scheme).

Bill Clinton made repealing the Depression-era Glass-SteagallAct — which separated commercial and investment banking — a priority. He commanded a bipartisan push in repealing the law, which was primarily advocated for by Wall Street lobbyists.

Citigroup, top beneficiary of the repeal, recruited Clinton’s Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin to join as an executive at the firm. Rubin went on to be one of Citigroup’s highest-paid officials, pulling in $115 million in pay from 1999 and 2008.

Clinton (bill) had been out of the White House for less than a month when he gave his first paid speech, to Morgan Stanley — another beneficiary of and advocate for Clinton’s Wall Street deregulation — for$125,000

Next address in Manhattan was at Credit Suisse First Boston, which gave him an additional $125,000

The Wall Street payments were significant in that they represented a form of gratitude not only for Bill Clinton’s deregulation of Wall Street. That year (2001) Hillary Clinton, now a senator from New York, voted for a bankruptcy bill that made it much harder for people to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy; the bill was backed primarily by banks and credit card issuers.

Bill Clinton in his spree of speeches repeatedly returned to two of the banking giants at the heart of political power in Washington: Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. In 2004 he took home a quarter-million dollars for a Citigroup address in Paris; Goldman Sachs gave him $125,000 for a New York City address. That address must have been a real hit for the former president, because Goldman invited him back for a series of lectures the next year, at Kiawah Island, South Carolina ($125,000); Paris ($250,000); and Greensboro, Georgia ($150,000). The next year, Citigroup Venture Capital invited him for a $150,000 speech, and the Mortgage Bankers Association — representing the folks at the very heart of the financial crisis — gave him $150,000 for a speech in Chicago.

Goldman and Citigroup repeatedly paid Clinton for the next few years, and a number of other major corporate interest groups — such as the National Retail Federation ($150,000) and Merrill Lynch ($175,000)

After Hillary Clinton lost her presidential bid and was appointed to the State Department, she and her husband had brought in more than $100 million from books and speeches.

In June of 2010, months after the Affordable Care Act was signed into law and the regulatory battle over the health overhaul was set into motion, the former president took $175,000 from the main health insurance lobbying organization, America’s Health Insurance Plans. A year after Hillary Clinton called Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his family “friends” of her family, Bill Clinton was paid $250,000 to speak to the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which was closely tied to the Mubarak regime.


Shortly after stepping down from her post, the she then embarked on her own spree of paid speeches, which don’t have to be disclosed because neither Clinton is a public official anymore. But from voluntarily disclosures and press reports, we know that she gave at least two paid speeches to Goldman Sachs for $200,000each.

So what we have is Bill gets rid of Glass segal so the banks and Wall street could (and did) gamble with mortgages, the banks then hire him to speak after he is free from the shackles of "public service". Hillary voted to make it more difficult to file for average people to file for bankruptcy, in other words this help protect the banks. When she too was freed from the shackles of "public service" she also made big $ speaking for the banks/wall streeters.

Hillary's health

2009, HRC fell and broke her elbow
2011 Hillary Clinton fell boarding her aircraft
Hillary Clinton needed to be physically helped up a moderate flight of stairs by her team of staffers
Dec. 9, 2012, Secretary of State Clinton is said to have fainted at home, hitting her head as she fell. she was diagnosed with a transverse sinus thrombosis — blood clot in the major vein at the base of the brain.
Jan. 3, 2013 press release;"the secretary is going to be wearing the glasses instead of her contacts for some period of time because of lingering issues that stemmed from her concussion."
May 14 2013, while defending his wife from Rove's remarks on whether this was more than a head bump, Bill Clinton revealed that his wife's injury "required six months of very serious work to get over." This contradicted news and State Department accounts.
Fainted/collapsed Sept. 11 2016 because of dehydration.
An email from Huma Abedin (HRC’s closest advisor) on January 26, 2013, says that HRC “is often confused

Her eyes

Although there are a number of possible causes, Coppedge (Dr.) suggests that Clinton’s strange eye movement is likely the result of intermittent lateral rectus palsy which was caused by damage to or pressure on her sixth cranial nerve. (maybe from 2012 concussion?)

Be an informed voter.

You consider this normal? With the banks and wallstreet getting the regulations taken off just enough for them to make big bucks gambling in complex real estate bundling schemes and in return the Clintons get huge $ for speaking engagements, is that normal or seem OK?

My point is the average working stiff has very little in common with either of the candidates. Both candidates seem slippery. I would much rather vote for a teacher, plumber or factory worker. People who sit down with a check book to balance it at the end of the month are people who I and 80% of Americans would be very similar too. For an example, the group of people I am referring to would never even consider forcing the ACA (obama) care onto the American people.

It could be worse! We could've had Wiener and Boehner running together on a presidential ticket. Than American voters would surely be screwed!

Neither candidate Trump or Clinton is going to change the way big business is conducted in The US.

Both know the catch phrases to sway their fans but it's all BS. Nothing will ever change, the rich will get richer and the middles class will become poorer and still blame in on the political leaders.

It's an established pattern in the system we call capitalism. Anyone can play the game like the big dogs if you take the time and effort to learn the rules. The rules are the same for those playing the nickle slots as those playing at the high stakes machines.

You get what you pay for!
