Donald Trump is not my voice. What is it about politicians that they feel they must “be my voice”. It’s not my voice that you should be, you need to be my muscle, my hand. You can hear a voice and do nothing…it takes a muscle, a hand to DO something. That is why we elect you…to actually DO something. Let’s review…
*Trumps supporters enjoy the thought of building a wall to keep illegal immigrants from our southern borders from sneaking in. Wonderful. It will just open up a new market for taller ladders. IF you build a double wall, with an interior space of six to ten feet between them (creating a well between the walls where detention and containment could be achieved) then it would work. Basically, you would need to build TWO walls, ten feet apart, for the entire length of the border from Texas to California. Along the way a guard tower every one hundred feet would be required to keep watch and take action on any attempt to climb said walls. Two walls, doubled manpower, and a lot of technology to scan, observe, and record activity…sounds like a hell of a lot of money to me. Where is it coming from?
*Trumps LIVES and THRIVES on his reputation as a businessman. Shady dealings with meat companies, universities, Casinos, and other entities that went bankrupt or are being investigated for fraud. His ties, his daughters shoes and clothing lines are made outside of the country. Do you really think Trump would sign laws that would inhibit or add to his or his daughters enterprises tax burdens or productivity? If you do, I have a bridge to sell you. Lawsuits from unpaid contractors, jilted “University” students, and investigations into fraudulent activities go all but unnoticed by Trumpeteers, but serious minds must inquire…is this the man to lead our nation? Will he use the presidency to set up easier situations for his industries, more profitable situations? Will he honestly lead with the country in mind or his business profit margins while he’s in office and beyond? Surely, he will not suspend his business activities while he’s in office. Is it not contradictory and a conflict of interest for him to be negotiating business regulations as President of the United States AND the the CEO of an international enterprise(s)?
*Trump does business with China, Saudi Arabia, and other countries around the globe. Can he be truly “tough” with our military and its actions if it means severing his business ties? Can he truly be non-biased in his actions? There are so many conflicts of interest in the whole military and business related responses that Trump would have to negotiate that they are beyond counting. Trumpeteers can’t see this, or don’t want to. It is not a good situation for certain.
Hillary, our only other notable choice is a liar, a thief, a tax cheat, and anti-woman (ironic that she claims to be a champion for women) in the fact that she abused her husbands victims, denied her husbands guilt, and remained silent about it all for so long. She blamed an American made video for the terrorist activity that killed four Americans in Benghazi, she eradicated 50,000 emails without federal oversight or judgement and had her and her staffers servers scrubbed with a program that renders them history. She oversaw a state department that witnessed abuses by the IRS, Homeland Security, and a lack of aid to the military abroad.
I always have voted for the Republican party, but not this time. I won’t vote for Hillary either. I intend to do a write in. A waste you say, it will get thrown out you say. I ask you…what happens if all of Bernies supporters, the Never Trump people, and the people who still have reached no decision show up and do a write in for “None of the above”? What happens if the voice of the voting public, if the disdain of the dissatisfied American voter outweighs the number of the happy and subdued voter? There are steps within the framework of our constitution to allow for a temporarily empty oval office. It’s never been tested before, but there is a time for everything, and it seems the current hypocritical and malodorous election cycle just might fit the bill.
The vice presidential candidates have been announced and neither are all that well known. Is this a time for relative unknowns to take second seat to the President? The middle East is on fire, our economy is on the brink of disaster, our internal race relations are down the tube, and our educational and values systems are weak at best. This is not a good time for trial and error. Whoever takes the office and their second MUST have foreign and military experience, financial and budgetary experience. As a team they must be able to cover all feasible situations that may arise, and I see nothing like that in either of the pairings we have been offered. Time will see how this nightmare plays out.
