"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

The country is deservedly falling to pieces.

A gun in every home, a bullet in every gun, an evangelical on every corner.

Hillary Clinton and millions of  supporters are fighting with everything they have to change that and they have a mighty machine. 

It's inconceivable  they will not succeed. 

It's certainly in Canada's interest  they should. 

We have no right to participate but we are more than an interested observer. 

Yesterday , a Republican stated the GOP  is  nothing more than a fund raiser and a register of names. They have no process for developing  a policy platform. 

Judging by the time and energy candidates spend degrading each other personally, that would seem to be true. 

There  should be  consequences.

"Trump is epically unprepared to be president. He has no realistic policies, no advisers, no capacity to learn. His vast narcissism makes him a closed fortress. He doesn't know what he doesn't know and he's uninterested in finding out. He insults the office Abraham Lincoln once occupied by running for it with less preparation than most of us would undertake to buy a sofa.

Trump is perhaps the most dishonest person to run for high office in our lifetimes. All politicians stretch the truth, but Trump has a steady obliviousness to accuracy.

He is a childish man running for a job that requires maturity. He is an insecure boasting little boy whose desires were somehow arrested at age 12. He surrounds himself with sycophants. He brags incessantly about his alleged prowess, like how far he can hit a golf ball.

He is an affront to basic standards of honesty, virtue and citizenship. He pollutes the atmosphere in which our children are raised. He has already shredded the unspoken rules of political civility that make conversation possible. In his savage regime, public life is just a dog-eat-dog war of all against all."

The kindest thing that could happen to America, and indeed the world, is for Trump to suffer a fatal heart attack before the Republican nominating convention.

Maybe you mean that some individuals on both sides are equally pathetic ?
I do agree that the days ahead will be saddening.
