As I see it, 12 days from today this year's contest for the United States Presidency will boil down to a choice between economy and morality. For all the brouhaha about Trump's alleged "assault" on women and "attacks" on Mexicans and Clinton's "crookedness" and almost guaranteed "continuation of failed policies" of the "disastrous" Obama administration, the electorate will make their decision based on which matters most to them: the condition of their personal economy or the general direction of the country as a whole.
If Clinton wins, that means that due to ignorance or indifference the majority of the people did not care about the seriousness of the numerous scandals that dogged her candidacy throughout the campaign. Similarly, if Trump wins, I'll take that to mean that they care more about the business mogul's promise of jobs and economic prosperity more than the questions about Trump's treatment of women and his attitude towards Mexican immigrants.
The problem is that both decisions are flawed. But so are the candidates. The voters? They're flawed too. Same thing with the system (electoral votes versus popular vote!) So, if the whole thing is flawed, what is the point in the whole exercise?
There are actually two points. First, take the saying "you get what you paid for" and translate that to "you get what you deserved". If after you've cast your ballot you're happy with the future outcome in two, four or more years, you deserve a pat on the back, but if you end up complaining you can kick yourself on your behind which you rightfully deserved too. The second point is that regardless of the exercise of the human ability to determine his destiny or depending on your faith or lack thereof -- behind, above, over or under it all is a power or force if you want to call it that, that superimposes its, his/her or their own way of guiding the path of human existence. Hence, every vote indeed counts and matters, but the wise voter asks for the wisdom and heeds the dictates of who or what he prays to, if at all.
