Unfortunately, a great majority of American voters are lazy and completely uninformed (aka willfully ignorant) when it comes to politics, elections and candidates! This typically holds true whether the person who they seek to elect for office is running for dog catcher all the way up to president! Sadly, in the era of the 30-second soundbite and a media that has clearly chosen an ideological side to support, it's not all the fault of the American people. Of course to be fair, the sheeple who roam among us are typically willing to be led as opposed to being leaders, take little to no responsibility for their actions and the decision of who to elect as President of the United States will take a back seat to more important issues like reality TV and Facebook

FeelingTheBern If you're young and unhappy over your lot in life that is, for the most part no different than mine when I was young, you look for the candidate(s) who promise you the world. At the same time you resist the temptation to delve into what those promises might actually mean for America were they to ever be realized. You stay focused on the word 'FREE' and on phrases like 'the rich paying their fair share' that seem to have become the mantra for a new generation. You assume the posture of the victimized rather than one of ambition.
You will listen to Hillary's shrill scream telling you how dangerous Trump is. None of this is to say that Donald Trump is a perfect candidate because of course he isn't. His over-the-top, sophomoric and abusive rhetoric is anything but presidential and he is a relative unknown in many ways. Of course in Election 2016 as in any election, we are dealing with candidates who are either politicians or politician wanna be's fervently denying their pasts, revising history, pointing the finger of blame for any failures away from themselves and basically telling whichever constituency they are in front of what said constituency wants to hear.

If you support Trump, you run the risk of physical harm from Bernie/Hillary supporters.
If you support Hillary, you run the risk of being ridiculed for the rest of your life.
If you support Sanders, you run the risk of communism.

I don't believe that one should be concerned about how he/she will be looked at by others. It would be wise to be concerned about the health of your country and the well being of humanity. Also there is a BIG difference between socialistic views and communism. Just sayin

I'm of the opinion that it doesn't matter who wins the presidential race.

I just like and dislike different candidates.

We'll still have a biased Supreme Court and 535 corrupt congress-slime to contend with.

Very true about Congress and the Supreme Court. Maybe I am a little too hopeful, but it gives me something to believe in whilst I trot around this mouse trap.

Glad I don't live in America, every term you guys nominate the worst candidates. You had your chance with Ron Paul and blew it, now with Bernie and blew it again. It's either two establishment politicians running the major parties, or an establishment politician versus a racist billionaire with small hands.

#1 Gary Johnson
#2 3rd party of any kind
#3 8th floor office window

Anyways, wish you guys south of the border the best of luck.
