Jimmy Carter, former President of the United States, has had some opinions on this election. Obviously, he specifically said that he is a Democrat and will be voting Democrat. Oddly enough, he also made some jabs at both of the candidates. He said, "It"s been an exciting and unprecedented kind of campaign this year, and unfortunately, the way it"s turned out, both choices in the major parties are quite unpopular...but I don"t have any doubt that one of the candidates is better qualified than the other." (http://www.politifact.com...). We can all say that this statement is correct. The RCP"s most recent average of seven polls has Hillary Clinton at 53 percent unfavorable to 41 percent favorable and Trump at 62 percent unfavorable to 34 percent favorable. However, Carter also said that Trump is his preferred Republican candidate. His reasoning being that Trump is completely malleable. He claimed that Trump and Clinton are both stark contrasts "in both substance and style, as well as competence and experience." (http://www.thewrap.com...). However, he also said that Trump "tapped a waiting reservoir there of inherent racism," and that "When you single out any particular group of people for secondary citizenship status, that"s a violation of basic human rights." (http://www.washingtontimes.com...).It should be noted that Carter has endorsed Hillary Clinton.

So, we have a previous president who endorsed Trump as the Republican nominee, but supports Clinton, even though he said she is also unpopular. It's quite clear that Carter is unhappy with how things are going in the US. He claimed that the US is no longer a democracy, and it's "just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or being elected president." He added that both Democrats and Republicans "look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Somebody that is already in Congress has a great deal more to sell." (http://www.huffingtonpost.com...).

So, do you think that Carter is right in his statements? Are the candidates stark contrasts and neither are "popular"? Do you think he is right in his statements about the current American government? What did you think of him as a President? Discuss.

Carter is the last guy anybody should take advice from, as he is the worst U.S president in the 20th and 21th century. His opinion is useless to me.

Worst? Come on. Bush takes that hands down.

Carter was an ineffective president, but has been a hell of a statesmen since.

I think jimmy carter was a horrible president who now runs around the world trying to inflate his ego. However....

His comments here are not without basis. If he endorsed neither, I'd give him more respect but I just can't side with one endorsing Hillary. For the record I'm voting brewsters millions: none of the above.

At least carter didn't somehow bring Israel into it... This time.

Trust me, I do not hold Bush in any good light. his handling of the Iraq War will forever be one of the worst foreign policy moves in American history.

However I cannot overlook Carter's incompetency for allowing the Shah to be toppled in Iran. This blunder simply added America on Iran's enemy list, and erased all secularism advancements that were made.

Perhaps I will backtrack on my statement. Jimmy Carter may not have been the worse, but he's in the top 3 for sure.

His problems as a president should not negate the overall success of his lifetime in the political sphere.

Clinton establishment, Trump pretends anti-establishment. We as a country began our move toward an oligarchy in the 80's and steamed forward ever since. We are now moving into a phase of oligarchy globalization. Trump followers feel that minorities have attributed to their job loss and slow wage growth; white nationalist. This thinking is spoon fed as racist rhetoric as reinforcement. The truth is jobs went overseas, laws weakening unions have been put in place and corporate monopolies stymied competition and fix pricing. Lawmakers and the elite get richer and the corporate media spews racism and ruination of religious family values as the cause for all our county's ills. Economic policy and 30 years of deregulation is completely ignored by the media. Feed the public a line often enough they will believe it and invest in it, this is exactly what's occurring.
