The 2016 elections, more than any election in recent memory (or perhaps ever), is poised to be an election cycle based on feelings over facts and details. From the presidential to the local elections, candidates of all political Parties are avoiding details and manipulating the emotions of voters. How this will prioritize policy, where it can, depends entirely on how your vote ranks.

Of course the main issue in politics for most people is the 2016 Presidential race, be we look at a few different aspects of that race in this episode. In addition we consider the ramification of who chooses the next 1-3 Supreme Court Justices and how it may effect the nation for generations. Lastly we touch on the trend in politics (at all levels and Parties) to promote rumor and personal vendettas at the expense of voters (which may confirm why some consider me the dragon of the Southern Tier).
