I'd vote Clinton but would prefer a Trump win if only for the chance to see how he would build that wall with Mexican money.
Compared to Trump, absolutely
Isn't this the 5th time you've voted in this poll?
Clinton 12.0 votes
Trump 3.5 votes
other 2.0 votes
I missed the "Anarchy or Trump for a laugh" vote thus Trump 3.5 not 3.4
Non fractional voting tally as Australia would never have thought of it!
Trump 35 votes
Clinton 8 votes
Except there's just the small matter of nuclear release.
In the US Nuclear Command & Control system, the President of the United States is close to a dictator.
The only person who can directly countermand the Commander-in-Chief is the Secretary of Defense, whom the President can fire and appoint without requiring confirmation from Congress.
The Vice President can invoke the Section 4 of the 25th Amendment declaring the President unfit for duty, but that'd require him/her to rally a majority of his Cabinet in under ten minutes, the time it takes for the nuclear release order to be transmitted and authenticated.
The VP as Acting President would then have to send a countermanding order subject to the same delay in transmission and authentication.
Barring outright mutiny, there's also a chance that an operational commander down the chain would defy the NCA by resigning (or more dramatically, by committing suicide) in order to prevent the order being fulfilled in a timely fashion.
Seriously? You are buying into this scare campaign? It's the most desperate laughable thing that Clinton has tried to pull and it's pathetic. If Clinton wins everyone will have the launch codes anyway. They will be on iTunes.
Clinton is a murdering warmonger who would have no problem murdering anyone, by nuclear means or otherwise.
What non-sociopath person behaves like this in public when asked about the murder of another country's leader.
Ain't over until the 'fat lady' swings...
At least Trump will scrap the TPP ..Clinton has also said she will scrap it but I think that Wall St will soon get her to do a 180.
Therefore I hope that Trump wins, scraps the the TPP and saves Australia's sovereignty.
The ISDS will soon have Corporations in charge of countries if the TPP becomes law!
It is ironic that Australia's former trade Minister, sell out Robb has taken up a position with the Chinese. The blue team has a lot to answer for in giving Australia's consent to a secret trade deal of 6000 pages. Meanwhile the red team sits back and does nothing. Why is this so?
Anyway maybe Trump will do what no Australian MP will do, scrub the TPP!

Why is it so? Because we are a vassal state of the USA and are required to follow their policies.
That means anyone in power is corrupted at this fundamental level to ensure compliance to all matters of importance.
No its because our government donated $2million uS Dollars of our tax payer money into the Clinton foundation! look it up.
A lot worse than that!
See my post #1693
It is around $88 million.
The level of corruption of the Clinton machine is absolutely extraordinary.
Bring forth your Tribute!
Like all the Bush, Blair, Howard etc. voters?
Seriously, wake the f#ck up dude.
Worse than the that. Julia Gillard donated 292 million dollars of taxpayer money into the Clinton Foundation linked and very shady "Global Partnership for Education" "charity" while she was PM. When she left politics she became the chair of that charity in 2014 and remains in that position to this day.
Pay to play and criminality on an industrial scale. From a start in union corruption to the big time. Well done.
2 minutes to midnight and Shaddam attempts a bit of research.
Thanks for the late mail there Agatha Christie.
Anyone have any info we didn't already know 2 million years ago?
Leftists are poor at social skills and discussion with adults?
