    Mr.Medved has stated repeatedly that it is shameful that in a country as great as ours, we have such poor candidates for the presidency. I absolutely agree. The GOP has nominated an insane orange man, and the Democrats have nominated a 1 percenter from the Clinton Dynasty who claims she will fight against the 1 percent. Sure.

    This speaks volumes about the role(s) money and entrenched power play in our deeply flawed political system. Both parties had much better qualified candidates who never had a chance because our process is so screwed-up and corrupt.

    Bravo, Michael, for speaking the truth. This truly is a dumpster fire on both sides, and no matter who wins, the general population loses either way.

    As a Libertarian, Johnson isn't really a viable alternative for most people. The 2 parties need to do a much better job at providing decent candidates. Sanders was also a joke, because being a Socialist is a deal-killer from the get-go.

    Perhaps but I would think that you would concede that some of his proposals do have merit.

    Yes, they do have merit. Hillary's VP choice shows that Sander's ideas aren't really that important (to her) and that she figures on winning without the Sanders devotees.

    I think there are a lot of libertarians out there, they just don't realize they're libertarian.

    If he could get on the debate stage with Dillary Clump, he could make a lot of inroads.

    As long as it takes a billion dollars to win the office of POTUS, we will never have the best, down to earth, level headed, and honest candidates to choose from.

    Funny how we always get to 2 people that Americans can't stand.

    Even though Trump and Hillary had over 30 million votes between them.

    ...out of 219 million eligible voters.

    Most eligible voters are too lazy or indifferent to vote in the primaries.

    Plus you got to add all the votes Bernie and the 16 Republican challengers got.

    Out of the choices they had.

    Our monied system will always spit out these types of candidates. The machine has been perfected.

    Trump is an outlier, as is Sanders, to a point.

    I'm convinced that the perfect candidate who would do the best job would never make it.

    They wouldn't make it through the primaries, and they certainly wouldn't get elected.

    In our current system, they likely wouldn't even run, so we're stuck with the crap that makes it through the crap machine.

    Garbage in, garbage out.
