Panic at the parties?

If one of the two president candidates are elected, we will have set a record having chosen one of the most disliked candidates in the history of our sharply divided country. Both the red and the blue are pleading for their party members to give their candidates a break and forgive their mistakes.

With Hillary’s far left policies that will either greatly raise our 19.2 trillion-dollar debt or cause an increase in taxes to pay for her expanded social programs. Also, she is considered to be the ultimate insider compared to the Donald, who appears to be the ultimate outsider. The polls tell us that the voters are tired of insiders.

The Donald’s boisterous tone appears to be getting muffled as he changes tactics to try and improve his numbers. He has not disclosed his financial situation as of July 2.

Two things are certain, large sums of money will be spent and no stones will be left unturned. Do you think the parties will stick with their candidates or will they panic and go against who the delegates have chosen? Are you surprised that these two are considered the cream of the crop?
