The current polls for the Republican and Democratic parties both have terrible candidates and all of said candidates will not change America. The legislative power of the house and the senate drown any progress made to produce significant change due to the bipartisan split between their ideologies. The only agreements that can be made currently are salary increases for themselves.

This debate is a bit unfair but you choose the title. In the history of presidents, there has never been a president that has not changed or altered the social/cultural or economic areas of the Country.

I merely have to suggest one way in which the President will alter the previous Presidents influences. For one, any Republican who gets elected will differ completely from the social democratic policies of Obamacare and more than likely take a more pro-Israeli stance than Obama has. No doubt the Obama Administration has slightly kept support and contact with the Israeli State, but Republicans across the board have sworn to keep their loyalties with Israel. Trump, and Cruz and Ted Bush, the main opponents in the Republican Party have given overwhelming support for Israel and the continued 'Islamic Threat' in the Middle East. To think that Obama's track history will be continued on by Republicans is simply incorrect.

Hilary will be the first female president, ushering in far more cultural and social interest in Feminist and social issues than Obama could possibly do/done. Regardless of whether you agree that this should happen, it is clearly the case that it will be a huge factor. So much is placed on this that women have been discouraged from voting for her by other women on the basis of her sex. Already, the New President whomever it will be will change or alter some core aspect of the U.S.

Even on more general statements. Foreign policies will alter based on external factors. The new President will have to adapt to a changing and growing Russian and Chinese economy, the New President will have to adapt to currency exchange and the National Debt which will require an alteration in the approach of Obama. The Middle East and Northern Africa are a constant varied turmoil of inner politics and emergent factors that will be addressed in their own way as the time allows.

It is trivially true that the next President in their 4 years of Term will change the face of the U.S. in some way, what is not debated is this fact, what could be debated is the positive or negatives of these facts.

He's the moderator. It's his job to notify you whether reported votes are sufficient or not.

...This was a report by thett3, I didn't report this vote. For that matter, why would I report a vote only to post a comment on that same debate saying that that same vote would not be removed? Why waste my own time?

Why are you following me around to my debates reporting every vote I get? Seems pathetic.
