You people are absolutely deranged. Welcome to the Trump Hate Circle Jerk.

More so than ever, this election is about who you hate the least. Does anybody truly like either of the two major candidates, or do they just believe theirs is the lesser of two evils?

Democrats say they are against war (well, they used to say that, in 2008) and wall street, and yet they're going to vote for Clinton, because they think Trump is despicable (well, that can because she's now carrying the Free Shit torch of her party).

Republicans say they are against big government and executive overreach, and yet they're going to vote for Trump, because they think Clinton is despicable

They're both right: Clinton and Trump are despicable. So don't vote for them, for crying out loud! If you choose to vote at all, vote for someone else. "But that's throwing your vote away!"

Here's the truth: Your individual vote is useless. It is completely meaningless. So, who cares if you're throwing away something completely useless and meaningless? I don't shed a tear when I throw away a gum wrapper, and that's actually more valuable my vote; at least I can jot a phone number down on a gum wrapper or put my old gum in it or make a paper airplane. The only thing I my vote is good for is making me feel smug, and I can do that without showing up at the polling place.

So, if you do choose to vote, vote your conscience. And if your conscience tells you vote for Clinton or Trump, get yourself checked out.

A thousand apologies for that and whatever other atrocious grammar mistakes I made or will make.

Just imagine listening to either of these clowns for the next four years.

The shrieking tones of Hillary. Its like listening to flock of Blue Jays at 6 am.

The tough guy east coast swagger of Trump. Its like watching a super shitty 70's B movie about the mafia.

They both suck so much its unreal.

I'm not a "Democrat" nor a "Republican". However, I can say plenty of good things about Hillary Clinton (and mean it); more than I can say negative things about her (and mean it; though there is that too). I could probably also say a few good things about Donald Trump (and mean it), but I'd have to dig deeper and it would be dwarfed by the negatives.

I understand the tone of someone's voice can be off-putting, but it's hardly a reasonable criterion to reject a candidate. Same with her wardrobe choices (which I hear a lot of criticism about).

I don't know HRC personally, but I know several people who do and what they say isn't bad at all. She can be pushy, she can be moody, she is ambitious (not a bad thing per se), but she's also an excellent administrator, people who've disagreed with her still felt heard, she "knows her stuff" and is quick to grasp new situations. All-in-all, it sounds like a competent choice for prez.

@David X.: The Republican narrative, which started as soon as Trump was the nominee, is that Hillary and Trump are equally awful. See pretty much any editorial written by a US Senator not up for re-election this year.

all of the noise about 'shrieking' and criticizing clinton's clothing and all the other nonsense is just meant to diminish her as a person without actually attacking her policies or record or whatever.

the daily show did a great takedown:

i have yet to hear anyone criticize the tone of voice of any male candidate - it's only women who are shrill or shrieking. i'm a straight male, but this seems like a clear cut case of institutional misogyny.

Trump sounds like a complete wannabe mafia guy that talks through his teeth like a fucking goofball.

Hillary shrieks like a fucking banshee.

Both are accurate comments.

Institutional misogyny, give me fucking break and get over yourself.
