The election like no other: entry one

Welcome to a brand new series here on my blog, covering the 2016 United States Presidential Election. In each entry, i will be covering different aspects of the race along with profiles of the three main candidates. as well as trying to explain the party platforms and stances.

For the first entry, i thought it would be good to explain why this election is being called an election like no other. The 2016 Presidential Election has gone down as one of the most rememberable elections because of the candidates for both the major parties.

On the democrat side, there is Hillary Clinton who has proven to be very polarising and on the Republican side, there is Donald Trump who has also been very polarising almost to the point of splitting the party of Abe Lincon.

This year’s race has also been rememberable for what has happened recently is society. In the past four years, same-sex marriage has been made national by SCOTUS. Tensions between races have reached boiling point because of the recent shootings of innocent black people. Not to mention the rise of the so-called “Islamic State” and the threat of terrorism. 

The election has also shown the divide between congress and the working people. More people are dissatisfied with the government and are wanting change. 

Regardless of the outcome of the election and whoever is the next president there is change upon the horizon. Big change.

`In the next entry, i will be documenting the Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton and will be answering the question Why has Hillary Clinton been a controversial choice?

Stay tuned and until next time, see you around…
