On the 8th of November 2016, The U.S public will vote on who will be their president for the next four years. At the ballot box, the American public will have the opportunity to vote for either Democratic nominee, Hilary Clinton, or Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Hilary Clinton

She is the wife of former president Bill Clinton. The guy who was accused of sexual misconduct by three different women whilst in office. Recently, it had been revealed that when Hilary was secretary of state, she deleted 33,000 emails on a private server. She defended herself by saying that she no longer had use for these emails. Nevertheless, no evidence has been collected to prove otherwise.

Donald Trump

The super-rich business tycoon is relatively new to politics but has clearly excelled. Donald Trump is more well known for being the chairman and president of The Trump Organization, responsible for building casinos. hotels, office towers, golf courses etc. Trump is the man who said he would build a wall to keep MExicans out if he was president. He said that he wants to kick all Muslims out of America. He also said that he gropes women without permission and "grabs them by the p***y." He incites and provokes violence and the division of people for no reason.

The U.S Governmental System Is No Longer A Democracy

When you look at the election process, the public are not really given much of a choice. For example, for the U.S presidential debate, Americans have the choice between a racist who incites violence, and a woman who suspiciously deleted 33,000 emails and said that if she became president, she would attack Iran. Evidence suggest that the U.S is an oligarchy, not a democracy.

An oligarchy is where a small group of people with vested interests have control of a country. In this case, it's hard to debate that the U.S has turned into a place where the rich guys rule the country. According to The Washington Times, researchers have concluded that U.S policies are formed more by special interes groups than by politicians properly representing the will of the general people, including the lower-income class. This means that the economic elites and groups representing business interests have massive impacts on U.S Government policy.

With both the U.S and UK politics included, I can't think of the last time I genuinely thought any candidate deserved to be in charge of a country. A democracy where you have to choose the lesser of two evils, isn't much of a democracy at all
