Eh I'm with @Generic - Canadian guy living and working in the USA. I'm very indifferent to politics, whether Canadian or American.
All I know is that there is a voting system. Majority rules, and whether or not anyone likes it, Clinton and Trump are the respective nominees through a democratic process. We can debate about persuasion, legacy, manipulation, etc. Reality is, these two candidates were voted into this position by the voters of their political party. Maybe the democratic system is flawed - but it's the same system our grandparents (or beyond) fought for, so that's what we're living with now. I just don't understand how everyone is so unhappy with the two candidates, yet they were voted in by the country. If you're not happy, vote for the other party, or vote libertarian, or write in a vote, or hell - don't vote at all. But the system is the system, and it's what it is.
EDIT: My two cents on the wall issue: talk to any uninfluenced business person or economist. Stopping the flow of immigrants, legal or illegal, - whether from Mexico, other countries in Latin America, or from overseas - would cripple the American (or Canadian - not trying to make this sound biased) economy. There is certainly an argument to made regarding the protection of our borders, but if you want to make that argument, please put yourself in the position of a consumer who relies, or simply wants, the services that immigrants - legal or illegal - provide to the economy. There's patriotism, and there's consumerism - we can't have one without the other.
