I truly believe in this title. Both candidates promise a solution to a problem they have little control over. What I am talking about is the market, they think their policy changes will make a serious change. In reality it would do very little, I won't get into the specifics here but an example is with oil. This is a limited resource no matter what they do they can't change that until physicists and Engineers are able to find a new source of energy (fusion?) there is not much to be said. Sure alternatives are out there, but let's be honest if they were as effective as oil they would have been accepted. The reality of the situation is one candidate wants to improve trade relations while limiting individual rights (abortion) the other wants to limit free trade while upholding a welfare state (taxes, welfare, etc). What is the alternative in this bipartisan party nation, where are the options? This is a serious question, why don't we have more options? We have exponentially more options in a supermarket, surely something as important as a presidential election should have more than two candidates.
