we in europe are all frightened of a winnings of Donald Trump.

It's a step forward to a new world war...or at least escalations of tension between countries.

Rhetoric -Oxford Dictionaries Definition

The art of effective or persuasive speaking or writing, especially the use of figures of speech and other compositional techniques.

Do I know Trump? No. Do I have a clue what he may or may not actually do if elected. Not really. What I do know is that whenever someone is running for public office most of what they are saying on the campaign trail is rhetoric and no worth listening to. It doesn't matter if they are Republican, Democrat, Independent, Green Party or what.

Is Hillary an option? One thing that is known beyond doubt is that Hillary Clinton is a Socialist. She wrote about it in college thought that was long ago but has really displayed that throughout. She is also someone that like the current President doesn't have much respect for the Constitution if it inconveniences what she wants to do. Rules? Sure they are all well and good but are meant more for everyone else not for those in office trying to help everyone else is the impression I get.

Whether all of this is exactly right about her I can't say for sure but that is the over all impression. Like everyone else that runs the rhetoric is all there is while she attempts to hide or is explaining past controversies like the email, white water etc...

Is Trump an option? One thing known beyond doubt is that he definitely holds the same superiority type thoughts. I don't think that becoming President is going to help curb that behavior.

Some of the thoughts on major topics

Immigration: I am all for immigration. That is what this country is all about. My family immigrated to this country as most of the people of this country did. Should there be open immigration where anyone can come here by just walking in at any time? No that is the most insane thing I have ever heard. Most others in the world feel the same way about their countries borders too.

Economy
: Who do I think between the two mentioned above is remotely qualified to even be able to do anything with it? Trump far exceeds Hillary in that area. His background is all business after all. Whether he can or will? That is a different question but does at least offer the qualifications more than Hillary.

Negotiating Abilities (Foreign Policy): While it is true Hillary was Secretary of State, that does not qualify you to be able to handle Foreign Policy. I don't think she did a very good job when she was in office and our current one is doing even worse. Contrary to popular belief I don't think that Trump is going to have the same type of rhetoric in place when he is doing it either. He didn't make the money he has by doing it that way did he?

So for the bigger thing that tends to linger in a lot of peoples minds. When Trump made the statement about stopping Muslims from coming to the country temporarily. The world seemed to went into an uproar over it while either at the same time or very soon after was chanting the exact same for their own country.

Sweden joins Europe-wide Backlash Against Immigration

Quote:
In Denmark and Germany, France and Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland, politicians, pundits and publics are immersed in noisy argument about values and loyalties, the end of multiculturalism, the integration failures of foreigners. It's a backlash against mass immigration.
Calls to Curb Muslim Immigration Rise in Switzerland

Quote:
“The problem with Muslim immigrants is becoming bigger and bigger,” Mr. Wobmann said in an interview on Monday. “Radical Muslims have more and more rights and we must limit this.”
I bring up these examples not to debate immigration or policy, just to show that hypocrisy is not bound to the U.S. when it comes to condemnation of others while doing the same.

Couldn't agree with you more! Thanks for the well-thought out answer and opinion

Notice how trump never act's like a presidential candidate when doing his campaign stuff?

I don't know who I will vote for so I am not trashing trump like I hate him but people, do research on his past and all the business's he own's or the land he own's. See how those company's history goes. Yes he is rich but he does shady things as well in the corporate world.

If trump talks the way he does to foreign leaders like he does on TV during his campaign crap, these leaders will think he is disrespecting them and well, that could ruin our relationship and who knows what the outcome of that turn out to be.

Look, I don't want a WW3 or any new wars starting with the next President. Focus on making America great before we do oversee's stuff. USA is the laughing stock of the world and that's the truth. We are not a powerful nation but a weak one that has troops in just about every country. Do you think other militaries like that or maybe they want to do the same thing, and have base's in USA.

Well let's be honest, anyone in office cannot balance the budget. Once Nixon took us off the gold standard there was nothing to keep the dollar in check. Now China owns our debt and we cannot ever repay it. But.. better than Sanders giving free handouts to anyone who has a pulse

I am honestly just worried what our rights are going to be in the next few years. I no longer know if I could get in trouble for any action I take in my life. It's like walking on pins and needles in this country.

As Al Ries said in his article, it's the successful strategy of Donald which makes him a probably winner....

...he focues on immingrants and muslim's people, with a strong slogan and clear intentions.

I really hope something happen and he won't win, otherwise behind his claims of more safety we soon discover what's been hided: less freedom for everyone.

What are our options though? Not a tall list of candidates that could lead our country to greatness.

I pinch myself everyday before I turn on the t.v. but it's not a dream.

Either way, there will be a real criminal in the Whitehouse for 4 years. Plenty of proof 2 top candidates are in fact criminals who should of been locked up at some point in there life.

I knew I should of started saving up more money when this campaign first started. lol

Yes but choosing one who probably will lead to a war, cause there are no other options...
in the History has proven to not be a good choice

Sometime the best way show people that they might be voting for darkness, is to place this darkness next to a source of light.

Trump might be a danger to the online marketing industry.

Hmmmm I really struggle to like Trump. I feel like he isn't really taking this whole being president thing so seriously and from a few clips I have seen a lot of his supporters just seem to be mindlessly supporting him without actually putting much thought into what he is saying and the repercussions of such.

I am pretty (very) liberal and am actually from the UK but spend a lot of time in the USA. I recently had a little debate with someone on this topic who classes himself as a republican. I guess I have a very sceptical view of American politics. Coming from a country that has a no guns policy and as a result doesn't have that much gun crime makes me really cringe when I hear politicians and people in general advocating the 'right' to own a gun.

Reading someone's reply on here they spoke of how Hilary Clinton doesn't have much respect for the constitution... For me I personally think that things have to stay relevant and as society changes so should policies and laws which is difficult in a nation which prides itself on a constitution that was written so long ago when society was completely different and the use of guns was so prevalent.

My guns have never hurt or killed anyone.

Kick my door in in the middle of the night, fail to identify yourself as LEO and that could change quickly.

I hope they make a movie about this year's presidential race including all the candidates. It would be a comedy slash action movie and lies.

Might be a box office hit. This was the most entertaining presidential campaign in a long time and it's still getting better!! lol

I think most elections have been overly dramatic. Events staged by the media. The more they can polarize the country, the more viewers they get, the more newspapers they sell.

In hindsight, no president ever lived up to his rhetoric. And that's probably a good thing.

hey, did you know Donald Trump used to have an affiliate program called Trump University? If Donald Trump becomes president, it'll be interesting to see how he affects the affiliate marketing industry. Since he himself used to have his own affiliate program on a very famous affiliate network. If Trump becomes president, hide you money up under a mattress and take it out of the bank because you might be looking forward to unexpected taxes and possibly anything else. You know how money hungry the Donald is.
