    If You Had a Choice Would You Get Rid of the 2016 Election and Have Obama's 3rd Term?

    Since many people hate the candidate choices (and I certainty do), would you rather, if it was theoretically possible, cancel the 2016 election and have a third term of Obama or would you rather just keep the election?

    Obama. I won't pretend to say I think he was a fabulous president, but far, far better than the options we have now. My greatest issue with Clinton is her foreign policy (not that I approve of much of anything else), and Obama was at least much better in those terms.

    I'm much more of a democrat than a republican for sure (green party unless someone like Sanders comes along in the democrats again:), but if it were not for a few absolutely unforgivable things about Trump (such as his racism), I might even take the despicable man over Clinton. He's much more of an unknown, one can't get much more tied to wall street than Clinton, and his foreign policy couldn't be much worse...he has the potential to be much less harmful in that way. (Don't worry though, my vote is going to the green party:)

    It makes me so sad that the country is actually going to end up electing someone (either way) who so very few actually would want to be the running the country--who are so disliked and distrusted.

    I'm enjoying my vacation here in British Columbia:)

    ... technically speaking, Obama could declare martial law extend his presidency. He would have to call it something a little bit more polite, something more palatable to the public at large like a state of emergency. The possibility exists if the country is destabilized.

    If I could make a personal appeal to all Americans: Please, please and once again please do not fall for identity politics. Remember Martin Luther King. The divisiveness of today contributes to one and one thing only: A conflicted and emotionally charged that is incapable of thinking rationally, incapable of showing grace, and one that is too distracted and consumed by their so-called cause that they neglect vital issues that affect all Americans and many foreigners.

    Last time Canada played the gay rights, abortion and identity politics card we ended up sending out troops to Iraq and signing economic deals that were not in our best interest and introduced the possibility of having parallel legal systems that may or may not be compatible with one another. Also, racism/sexism etc. is an ambiguous term that no longer means what it initially meant. Whoever you vote, look through the media and all the accusations and see the canditate for what they really represent.

    ... personally, I would rather have a third option than a third term of Obama. Granted he's more charismatic than Donald or Hillary BUT he did many things that were terrible for the States and the world at large. Shame that elections/politics have been reduced to a cult of personality.

    NO NO NO! FUCKING NO! We do not need that shit stain as our emporor! Anyone is better then OBAMA, I do mean anyone. He flip flopped on practically every issue, sent more people to IRAQ after he said he would end the war, and years after they found the guy they were looking for we are still in IRAQ. Seriously WHY? What are we doing in other countries anymore? We are not gaining anything. If they really wanted to take over they would just blow up the country and start from scratch after every man, woman, child was dead. Thier efforts to reform is clearly not working is it? So this effort is futile. There will never be peace in the middle east, the reason being its the MIDDLE EAST! They choose to stay shitty and thats thier choice.

    Keep the election.

    As much as I admire Obama, and think he will be viewed as a strong, effective President, it's time to move on. That's how the system works.

    None of the above, up till now Obama is the worst President of all time. Amazingly, whoever wins this election will top even him in terms of worst of all time.


    In case someone tries to interpret the above in terms of the false left/right dichotomy I'll just state I'm outside of all that. And, for the record, I'm a radical for Capitalism.

    Excuse me, have you ever sat through a debate with Donald Trump?
    I am going to take that as a Hard No. That dude straight up quotes fascism, Nazi's and white supremacists and is totally cool with it. because he wants to be associated with interesting quotes. The republican nominee supports Qaddafi, and Saddam Hussein and Mussolini. The fuck? he is better than Obama?

    The words of Trevor Noah --- "Right now, America's election looks like its getting into a marriage its going to regret. And everyone can see that this is a bad idea. And i get it, you spent so much money, and you invited every one and it has been scheduled. But, i am going to be that asshole friend that tells you how it is--maybe you need to call it off, do not go through this wedding. because i am telling you, that two years from now, you are going to see your Ex (Obama) walking down the street and realize, man.. i didn't realize how good i had it."

    As a person who's not an American I'd rather just forget about the election.

    My reasoning:

    1. Clinton is a criminal and shady as fuck. The only thing I think I agree on is gun control.

    2. Trump is a fascist shit stain.

    3. As an Australian I am sincerely getting sick of hearing about the election. Seriously you guys drag this fucking shit out so much. I didn't know we were having an election over here until a month or so ago and with two weeks of constant campaign ads we were done and voting.

    4. Politics is a hopeless game anyway. They're going to fuck up regardless. At least Obama isn't embarrassing. Just saying.

    5. Bernie Sanders is out of the question now.
