The atmosphere surrounding the USA elections is toxic, to say the least. This is probably largely driven by the truculent, brash personality of the present President who specialises in pushing buttons and saying what you don’t want him to say.
At the point of the last election, I felt that neither candidate should be able to stand for such an important office. Neither candidate seemed to me to have the credentials for such high office.
Alas it seems the most important factor in the race for the Whitehouse is having the money to throw at the campaign and if you have the cash, nothing else matters. It seems throughout society and across the world the crisis we face is one of leadership.
