I enjoy "political science" and economics (although neither is a science) but for a lot of people, their candidate is good and the opposing candidate is evil. Politics is always like that. Always has been and always will be.
There are a lot of people out there who think Trump really is Hitler and his followers are a bunch of dim-witted closet Nazis. And others think Hillary Clinton is a corrupt, lying old dyke/zombie temporarily kept alive by prescription medication.
Fortunately the Founding Fathers knew what they were doing when instituted the separation of powers. They studied their history and knew it well.
Traditionally Americans have given the Presidency to one party and Congress to the other. Good thing, too. The Founding Fathers did not want "efficient" government. They intentionally crippled it.
If Trump gets elected he can only do so much good (and it won't be all the much) and if Clinton gets in she can only do so much damage.
I've mentioned before I know an 84-year-old man (who was a B-29 pilot in Korea) who spent his life as a political consultant. He told me he's only met one honest politician in his life; the rest had money, sex and drug problems. I found what he said to be true. Think of both Clintons, LBJ, JFK.
I suppose I should be cynical but I'm not. It's not in my nature.
But I don't like politicians - any of them. They always lie. All of them. Republican or Democrat, it doesn't matter. Money, sex and drug problems. For all practical purposes, that applies to all of them.
One of the biggest flaws in humans is that narcissistic splitting of people and ideas into all-good and all-bad. If we didn't have the ability to do that, things would be better for everyone. And politics would exist in a form we'd barely recognize.
It might even be "divine" again.
