    I will be happy if Clinton wins. No difference who but not Trump for sure. Especially after his words about climate change and use of energy. Seems he wants to make steps backwards instead of forwards. Based on his words he will prevent all steps which are aimed to replace oil and gas. I dont want anyone to prevent energy revolution. Companies like Neutrino Inc from Montana spent years for researches and development to make life of mankind easier and our world cleaner. So what is now? Trump comes and says no, we dont need renewables, we will use ONLY oil. I dont think this is the right way so i dont want Trump to be a president. World does not need crazy clown, world needs energy revolution!

    She's got the President of the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service, the Attorney General and Department of Justice and every news medium there is (except for Fox) on her side. Why isn't she 50 points ahead???
