    … and universally slam them.

    “Saying that Donald Trump “has misled the electorate” and is “a dangerous, destructive choice for the country,” a group of 370 economists have penned an open letter denouncing the Republican nominee and encouraging voters to choose another candidate.

    The signatories, Nobel prize winners among them, did not endorse Hillary Clinton in the letter, but some were also involved in a separate open letter released earlier in the week that did make their endorsement explicit.

    Trump has broken with traditional Republican economic ideology during the campaign and has embraced — among other policies that diverge from traditional Republican orthodoxy — a platform that is skeptical of free trade.

    The letter, which was first published by the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, slammed the businessman-turned-politician for promoting “magical thinking and conspiracy theories over sober assessments of feasible economic policy options.”

    With one week until the election, the economists included a bullet-pointed list of criticisms directed at the Republican nominee, asserting that Trump had degraded “trust in vital public institutions that collect and disseminate information about the economy” like the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which releases jobs numbers.”

    Trickle-down doesn’t work. Simple as that. And the 2008 collapse is mostly due to the deregulation brought in, starting with Reagan.

    Financial advisers going back to the Nixon administration have stated that “if” Trump is elected President, expect the Stock Market to really take a dive. Wall Street likes stability and Trump does not offer that. We only have a few days left to find out the results. By the way, voters can and have elected good and bad candidates worldwide. From FDR, to Kennedy, and even Reagan, on the other side of the coin people elected Hitler, Mussolini, and Franco.

    For the good of the country let’s hope we somehow don’t add Fuckface Von Clownstick to the list.

    I’ll see your “good of the country” and raise you “good of the world”.

    Check out the funny tweets on Ann Coulter’s site:

    “If you think about it, electing our first female president WHILE she’s under active criminal investigation just makes it double historic.”

    For the good of our country and the world we really need a year of “What did the President know and when did she know it?”

    As opposed to “Who did Trump rape and how old was she when he did it?”
