Hillary has never had a major accomplishment, or even a minor accomplishment, in her years of public service that was a net positive for the nation. We know that Hillary is a liar and dishonest. Her most ardent supporters cannot refute that. We know that Hillary places the well-being of her and her family’s financial security above the security of the nation. We know that Hillary put her family’s foundation above her duties at the State Department. We know that Hillary’s judgement is very questionable based on the decisions she made while in the State Department; Libya, Benghazi, Iran, and giving the Russians Uranium because of a contribution to her foundation are but a few examples.
Then there is Donald Trump. We know Donald Trump is a big government advocate. As much as I disagree with most of Trump’s policies, that is not the biggest problem. Trump seems to be more concerned with how people perceive him personally than how they perceive his policies. Throughout most of the campaign, both general and nominating campaign’s, we have concentrated very little on Trump’s policies, but a great deal on the nuances of the Trump personality. A couple of these traits that have dominated the news cycle would be his obsession with tweeting, his tendency to demean and belittle anybody who disagrees with him, and his “thin skin.”
Both of these flawed candidates refuse to, for whatever reason, deal with and concentrate on the many problems the United States faces. At the time it would appear a serious debate will take place, one or the other will quickly turn to meaningless foolish issues that will have no bearing on the welfare of our nation; issues like the former Miss Universe.
Hillary understood her opponent when she brought this issue from twenty years ago into the campaign. For her to do so shows how hypocritical Hillary really is. Notice she did not mention the demeaning way she handled the many situations involving her husband’s sexual exploits, including rape and sexual harassment. Nevertheless, this meaningless issue has become the topic of discussion this last week. It has become the topic of discussion because of the thin skin of Trump. If Trump had responded with a one short sentence reply, and then diverted the discussion to real policy issues, Miss Universe would now be on the 29th page of a 20-page paper or it would be discussed in the 75th minute of a 60-minute broadcast. Instead Trump has done exactly what Hillary wanted him to do; defend a position on which he cannot win.
The abhorrent reality is that, if an election is held, one of these two terribly flawed individuals will be our president. This is after we have had eight years of an equally flawed person as president. It makes an individual wonder if the nation can survive 12 years under such flawed leadership. It also reveals that the so called wisdom of the American people is also very suspect, at best. Out of 325,000,000 people from whom the American people could choose, they chose, Obama, Hillary, and Trump. May God have mercy on us.
Yet, as flawed as Trump is, Hillary and Obama win the prize as the most flawed, hands down.
