I don't think Trump scaring both sides is a problem. Ron Paul and Bernie Sanders do the exact same thing. The problem lies outside America, because remember, the President represents the country to the world, and as of right now, Trump is HATED by most of the world. Europe can't believe he's even an option, Mexico has expressed their disdain numerous times, China, Korea, and Japan can't believe some of the stuff he has said about their countries, and he's done all of this and then some before even becoming president. He's a loose cannon, and in a lot of ways, that truly is scary.
And I don't think he's transparent at all. He's a gaslighter, just like Dick Cheney in a lot of ways. He lies so strongly and so confidently that it makes people second-guess reality, and that's very, very dangerous. Look no further than the Iraq War to see how a over-confident lie turned into something horrific. I'm not saying Trump will do the same thing, but imagine if he starts a Holy War with Islam based on ideas like "35% of Muslims would go to war" with the US. I honestly just don't know what to expect, and that's a bit dangerous. With people like Ron Paul and Sanders, I know exactly what to expect (Although Congress wouldn't let either of them do the things they really want to do).
And lastly, Trump has been funded heavily by outside sources, and one of the lies surrounding his "self-funded" idea is that his company gave a ton of money as a tax write-off to his campaign. Sure, that's kind of "self-funded", but he's expecting to play the system and get a lot (If not all) of that money back.
It's all very sketchy, and honestly, voting for Hillary or Trump is just terrible. They both suck. haha
My problem with Trump, if I haven't mentioned before, is the very same reason I don't like Hillary. Untrustworthy, constantly lies about just about anything, and he has had his hand in politics for a very, very long time. Trump and Bill Clinton are really good friends, even to this day. Neither of them want you to know that now, for whatever corrupt and goofy reason, but Trump is on record calling Bill numerous times and meeting with him before announcing his candidacy just last year. That's very sketchy to me, and it really bothers me that they are both pretending to hate each other now when he whole-heartedly supported Hillary for years, and she obviously accepted every bit of it. And again, Trump is friends with Bill, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
Trump's character, like Hillary's, just rubs me the wrong way, and I can't ever find it in my heart to support him as a candidate, just like there is NO WAY I'll ever support Hillary and her garbage campaign.
I kind of liked Kasich and thought he would be a decent candidate for the Republicans, as his moderate position might hit closer to home with the average American, and although I disagree with Sanders on a lot of things, I like his attitude and his genuine desire to help the poor and middle-class. Sadly, neither of those two are getting the candidacy, so it's like a 95% chance it'll be Trump VS Hillary, which just goes right back to my first point; they are connected. Ugh.
I just don't know what to think of this election anymore. It's a mess.
Don't get me wrong, Obamacare is a mess, but something had to be done. Obamacare is at least making it very obvious that American medical insurance is BAD. Capitol B - A - D, BAD. Nowhere on the planet charges as much as America for medical and medical insurance, and it is insane how big of a difference it is. American private insurance companies charge an arm-and-a-leg for "good" health insurance that doesn't even guarantee that you'll be covered. That's some Grade-A BS. Obamacare was supposed to eliminate some of those bad qualities about American medical, but sadly (And quite obviously), it has screwed things up all the more. That is that, and it's about time for a single-payer healthcare system in America, as the whole system is awful and needs to get reset. Once again, we are all paying way too much for much of nothing.
As for Trump on the Iraq War, he is on record for saying he supported it before we invaded, but of course, recanted his own words very quickly upon realizing (Like most of the country) that it was a huge mistake. I'm one of these people too, and I'm sure you might have been as well. Stakes were high, and manipulation was expertly done back then to make it sound like we absolutely had to go into Iraq to stop them. But of all the current candidates, Bernie Sanders is the only one that genuinely stood against it from the beginning and even voted against it. Trump, not being a politician, doesn't have any legal records outside of supporting anything that came out of Hillary's mouth back then (Since he supported her from around that point), and Hillary was definitely for the invasion initially as well.
