Before people announced their 2016 candidacy for president, let’s take a general look at our country.
Just some of the problems were:
- the economy
- race relations
- the Middle East conflict
- the Congressional investigation(s) into Hillary Clinton
Those are the ones that immediately come to mind.
Ever since our nation was brand new, it was politicians who ran the country. Two hundred and forty years of rule by politicians. We’ve experienced recessions, scandals, foreign threats, import/export laws, crime waves, and so much more.
If we had a complaint, although we are founded “for the people, by the people, and of the people”, we had to take our complaints to a politician who, for the most part, had so many other things on his/her mind that often nothing got done.
So, now comes 2016, and the possibility that maybe another politician would not be a good choice. I mean, politicians got us into these messes, so why continue making the same mistake we’ve been making for the last 240 years?
Enter Donald Trump, a businessman. A billionaire. He has the expertise to run a successful business, and isn’t the United States a lot like a business?
Selling, buying, taking care of “employees”, competition, and so on.
At first, I had high hopes for Trump. “Make American Great Again” was a great promise made to us by someone who was NOT a politician. Trump supporters support him because they have had enough of politicians. They support him in hopes he would reverse much of the harm Barry Soetoro (who calls himself Barack Obama) did while he was in office. They support him because of love for country, pride in the United States, wanting our nation to get back on the road where things can be found like ethics, truth, patriotism, morals, strength. The road we are on now doesn’t seem to have any of those qualities.
I supported Trump—for a while. No longer. Although he has great business insight and a knack for success, he has no tact, no couth. His mouth continues to get himself into trouble. Some of the things he says are just moronic.
Over time, his potential for winning the election has quickly dissipated.
And so has the support of many, including politicians in his own Republican Party. Every time, it seems, he opens his mouth he frustrates more of his supporters.
I do believe Trump could run a successful business, but not our country. There is so much more to leading a country than just the cash register.
He does not have the personality, the schmooze, the art of negotiation needed to lead a country. To run a business on a street with competition has an entirely different plan than dealing with the rest of the world that is comprised of both friendly and hostile nations.
On the other hand, I cannot support Hillary Clinton, either. She is a pathological liar. She is not trustworthy. She is one of the suspects in half a dozen conspiracies and/or scandals. She was fired when she was a young attorney for ethics violations. Hillary and Bill were forced to return furniture they had stolen from the White House after they moved out. When she was a staff member on her college newspaper, she openly called police officers “pigs”. She already had socialist tendencies and a bleeding heart Liberal attitude.
She has lied about so many things and so often there is no way ANYONE should be able to believe ANYTHING she utters.
So, for the first time since I became of voting age, I am not going to vote. It is my Constitutional right to vote, but I dislike both Hillary and Donald intensely. And I do not know enough about Johnson, but it doesn’t matter, because I think the only way he could win the election would be if both Hillary and Donald dropped out, which is not going to happen.
I cannot find it within myself to cast my vote for any of the three candidates.
So, I am going to walk away from this election and just hope for the best.
This is the worst presidential race I have ever seen with two of the worst candidates I could imagine.
May God have mercy on our country.
