I hope Trump does win, this country can't get much fucking worse anyway. How much harm could he possibly do in 4 years? Probably a lot less than any of the alternatives.

I heard something the other day that made a lot of sense about politics in general. 99% of everyone in Washington is either a career politician (i.e. never had a real job) or a lawyer. How come we never elect professionals to represent us? How come we don't send engineers, doctors, entrepreneurs to Washington? The mess we have is a direct result of who we have sent and continue to send.

And that goes back to what I said about the President not really having much control over anything. Until as a group we start sending different people to represent us no matter who is elected President they won't be able to make any head way.
