Is anyone else completely torn about who they want to be the next US President? 

I'm curious if you guys have a candidate you really stand behind or if you're like me and really struggling with this question.

To me the top issues are in this order...

1. Keep the US out of war. Any war these days can lead to a world war including the use of nukes.

Heck, that's what I care about more than anything else.

So despite my fascination with Trump and other Republicans I tend to think the Democrats are less war-hungry.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. I'm a registered Independent.
