Not concerned about the election this year

Regardless of who is elected President, we should remember that we are electing a president — NOT a king or a dictator.

There is a system of checks and balances in our country. The President will have to deal with Congress and the Supreme Court.  This is what I learned in Civics class in the 9th grade.  It’s nothing new.

This is why I am just not concerned about the election this year. Whether it is Trump or Clinton or someone else, it just doesn’t matter.  Congress or the Supreme Court will correct the next President, whether or not he/she wants them to.

Further, there is always impeachment or not being reelected to a second term.

    good advice.

    Well, I have to disagree with you here. The presidency is very important. Just compare the results of the last two!

    I will still be voting for the candidate I think will be best for the country. We are so lucky to be in a country with freedom of speech. No matter how much we may disagree with what is said, at least we know we won’t be thrown in jail or worse if we don’t agree with whoever says it.

    There have been elections when I might have been more inclined to agree with what you say, but this is not one of them. In fact, I think who we select as president will be critical for our nation’s future in ways that have not been so true at any other time in my lifetime — if we want to maintain the country established by our constitution.

    I so like Bernie Sanders but he won’t get to the dance. How can someone make it to the dance without millions and millions of dollars to run? not likely, they had a big fund raiser for Hillary Clinton in California at George Clooney and Amal his wife their home, $33,000 to get in and $100,000 to get a table near her, he did it to shove a point about how the raising of big money influences the election of any person to the presidency, he wants a democratic president to change all that..Back to the BERN, he only makes $174,000 as a senator from Vermont he doesn’t own lavish homes like Hillary Rodham does and also The Donald, what is up with that, also the BERN wants everyone to get health care and an education so they can work and buy a tiny home someday, no other candidate does that, but sadly he is misunderstood and won’t get to the dance. I am pretty disgusted with all the mudslinging and horrible no manners in all the candidates save BERNIE and HILLARY..I might not vote even though it is a privilege and honor to do so..It just makes me madder than a wet hen about all the coverage of rude, crude people trying to become the president of the most wonderful country in all of the world!

    As a Southern Californian with our local news full of political events and facts here, I feel compelled to correct the misinformation that funds raised at the Clooney home were solely going to Clinton. Research will show the bulk of it was for the whole Democratic party and various other candidates from which Sanders would benefit IF he was to become the final candidate as seems unlikely now since New York vote. Hopefully, disillusioned Sanders supporters will seriously consider the issues at stake and how important their vote will be to come closer to achieving so many of his shared goals with Clinton.
