I think it depends on the questions.
If they're asked questions that directly reflect this (Hillary's Health, Trump's exaggerated plans, etc.), then one or the other candidate will be on the attack while the other tries to establish the intended foreground, making the debate less passive than expected.
But I think even in those circumstances, the candidates will attempt to divert the question's subject, anticipating the impending attack if they let the clear opening subject linger.

Our economy is half planned as is Denmarks
We're doing fine. This is about an insane immigration policy.

One of the largest reasons the Nordic countries do half as well as they do is because they don't have to pay for defense on top of them being essentially homogeneous nations.

We're getting close to our target of 2% of BNP spent on defence. We're not that bad.
It's just that the US spends more money on it's military than the rest of the world combined.
We don't really have the population for a big army, but we got some of the on average best equipped forces out there.

But yeah, we have a culture of everyone working together to take care of everyone. No one's left behind.

The US spends by far the most in total currency. But we don't spend even close to the most in comparison to our total GDP. I want to say we're like 30th in that regard.

Yeah, that would be North Korea.

The point though is that you shouldn't be so quick to judge a system you have yet to experience.

I wouldn't trade it for yours.

I criticise my own "system" 95% of the time. I really don't care about what other nations do economically, that's your business and your priority, not mine.

I take issue with it when people here, want to implement a lot of economic ideas from Europe or elsewhere, that I believe to be bad ideas. And one reason is exactly because our systems are different and a bad policy over there would likely be disastrous here.

#127658 - whoozy (09/26/2016) [-]
But I didn't do this.
I was just defending our system after you blamed it for Swedens mess.

As I said earlier I'm fine with you doing you and us doing us.

I'm not convinced that is necessarily a good thing or realistic. It really depends on the next couple of years and the career I pursue.

No people = No Jobs unless you're doing something like day trading, SaaS, Internet Marketing, ect

A job? I'd just go there to live as a hermit.

These would be the pragmatic approaches, but neither of these candidates are pragmatic people.

I think they'll be forced to. Because if either of them messes up they'll likely lose the election. Especially as Trump is on the upswing and Hillary has been hurting.

He goes back and forth on subjects and gives no reasoning for it.

He flip-flops on everything. Another reason not to vote for him, you can't know what you'll get.

#127603 - marinepenguin (09/25/2016) [-]
When he flip-flops, he doesn't completely change his opinion, he just changes what his exact plan to deal with the problem is. What I've seen recently is that he's actually been changing some of his positions and his demeanor based upon what a lot of people have criticized him about, which shows he has restraint and is actually willing to change due to criticism.

All I've heard reports on is the wall and muslims. I've no problem with immigration really (it'd be a bit hypocritical if I was against it).

He's actually talked about it quite a bit. Though he's flipped on it quite a bit on what exactly should be done, he's been impressing me overall as a candidate in general.
