Its amazing that now that NSW Greens (surprise) has passed a motion saying that Trump is not suitable for office. Isn't amazing how quickly the dogma of personal views not affecting public policy is ignored when the progressives want to demonise someone. You would think that by their standards Gillard, Shorten and the Clintons would also be disqualified.

Personally I don't think Trump or Clinton is fit for office but with the dogma of moral relativism in play the people of America have no other choice.

So should a person's character come into the equation or not? If so why not with Clinton as well as Trump. The question of character certainly does not come into play when it comes to the media (especially the left). We would have almost no staff at the abc if that was the case.

Dear runner,

You have said earlier;

"Trump has more character than Shorten or Turnbull."

"Trump looks like mother theresa compared to this gutless thugs who obviously support Clinton."

"Hopefully if Trump is elected he will despose of the Government funded positions that keep dumbing down the young ones at schools and uni's where all they can do is come up with labels for those exposing their warped and failed narratives."

I note the shift away in your support for Trump. What was it that swung has you?

'I note the shift away in your support for Trump. What was it that swung has you?'

as I stated in the post Steelie neither of these people are suitable for Government. Many are in gaol for less than what both these people have done. Trump was actually part of the Democrats at one stage.

Under Trump I suspect less babies will be butchered and sold on the meat market as their would be under Clinton. I have heard unconfirmed reports that Planned Parenthood strongly support Clinton. Both appear not to have a conscience.

The Democratic Party are the ones who actually supported slavery, inequality and the KKK.
Fact. No Republican ever owned a slave.
Republicans opposed slavery against the Democrats, and fought for equality AND womens suffrage which the Democrats also opposed.
When blacks got the vote, Democrats supported the KKK.
Democrats never changed their position, they just changed tactics.
They still enslave the blacks today, only now they do so in inner city ghettos and kill their children at Planned Parenthood.

All the Hillary supporting do-gooders are being duped on the very issues they think are important but they really have no clue who the Democratic Party actually are..

What a bunch of easily lead imbeciles.
I'll wear my conspiracy theorist tin-foil hat with pride compared to the Clinton supporting morons who would happily put a warmongering liar, and a rapist in the Whitehouse all while claiming to be smarter than others.
It would be really easy to laugh at how dumb and foolish they actually are if it wasn't such an important issue.
Russians are saying vote Trump to avoid WW3.
Hillary supporters political correctness won't matter one bit when the worlds cities become Hiroshima's and Nagisaki's.

The best quote of the Week, goes to Paul Craig Roberts:
"Clearly, Hillary is the candidate of the One Percent, and Trump is the candidate for the rest of us.
Unfortunately, about half of the 99 percent is too dumb to know this."

- This sums the situation up perfectly.
Half the people are complete jellyfish.

"Suitability" is an almost irrelevant issue too btw, like asking about the suitability of QLD or NSW to hold the State of Origin sheild for the following year.
It's a two-horse race and you can't go for the referee.

There's arguments both are unsuitable, but I'm still for Trump 100%.

"Fact. No Republican ever owned a slave." - from what I can tell close but some doubt around it. Overall abolishing slavery was a big factor in the founding of the Republican Party and the so called radical Republicans seem to have been major players in the civil rights movement with by and large the democrats opposed to much of the civil rights movement.

There does appear to have been a shift during and since the Reagan era though with the Republicans moving away from their roots and the Democrats embracing a lot of stuff they formerly opposed. From my perspective a lot of the Democrat shift has occurred without any real understanding of the underlying concepts though. A range of issues show up. There are claims of at least one current serving Republican politician with off shore business interests that effectively amount to slave owning but I've not pursued the validity of those claims.

The current focus on calling out Trump's divisive comments by the Democrats while applauding women making similarly divisive comments about men being a very current case in point along with the support for the Black Lives Matter movement while ignoring actual likelihood of groups being killed by police in the USA. A range of other issues in my view display a similar lack of understanding.

At least for the Republicans there are a significant number willing to say "Not Trump" even at the risk of further electoral harm to themselves and their party.

Both sides seemed to have moved in a direction where genuine compassion or care for fair play is thrown out for the sake of ideology, a disturbing trend.

Regardless of Hilary Clintonís flaws, there are three things that make the choice between the two a no-brainer:

1. Clinton has the temperament to be president;
2. Clinton is intelligent;
3. Clinton is not Trump.

Nothing more needs to be said. Clinton could be a murderer and the above three points would still negate that for so long as Trump is the alternative.

It has indeed been a beautiful thing to see Trumpís campaign implode and his polling take an irreversible dive.

Armchair Critic,

Those who boast that the Democrats supported slavery while the Republicans abolished it clearly donít seem to realise that both parties have switched from Left to Right a couple of times since theyíve both been around. When slavery was abolished, the Democrats were the Right-of-centre party. To try to pass the pragmatic Right off as the bleeding hearts, and the bleeding-heart Left off as the ones who wanted to keep slavery, is a bit much.
