Election Of Nation’s Unacceptables
May 5, 2016
the country can’t stand Donald Trump.
The other half can’t stand Hillary Clinton.
Nevertheless, one of the two will most likely be our next
president of the United States.
Trump has angered large blocks of people with his stance
on the wall between Mexico and the United States, and he
has made a lot of women mad — including my wife which
means we will probably be canceling our vote.
Hillary has questionable honesty when it comes to her emails
and past history while being Secretary of State. Then there
is her receiving large sums of money from Wall Street, which
makes one wonder who has bought and paid for her.
Until now, both were still trying to win their nomination
of their respective parties, so their attacks have been
on their opponents in their own party, but that is changing.
No candidate can hope to win the presidency and fight their
own party at the same time.
One of the biggest mistakes Trump has made is with his stance
on the so called “Wall” between the United States
and Mexico. There already is a wall but it doesn’t
work, and in fact, we could build a wall a mile high and
it still wouldn’t work because they would dig under
it, and go around it.
Now could Trump work to build an “electronic”
or high-tech surveillance wall to prevent all unwanted or
undocumented foreigners into this country? That is a real
possibility and may not be a bad idea.
Clearly security is a major concern of this country and
it becomes more important with each terrorist attack.
We feel as soon as the primaries are all over, there is
going to be a different tone on both candidates part. The
in-fighting of the parties will quiet down and the focus
will be on the other party and their candidate.
The Republicans will be looking at a possibility of Donald
Trump as their president, and no matter if they like him
or not, they will have to work with him if any new legislation
will be approved. Democrats will also realize that while
they would have preferred Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton
is far better than having Donald Trump in office.
All of this will lead to another five months of down and
dirty politics in the good old American way.
The problem is for most of us, we have already had our fill
of politics in the last eight months — and most of
us are sick of it.
It takes up half the evening news every night, and seldom
amounts to anything new or even newsworthy.
No matter who wins, we will be so sick of him or her, we
will be fed up of politics for the next year or two, and
the news media will have to find something decent to focus
My vote would be to have the national election one day after
Is there really going to be anything new about these candidates
that we haven’t already heard?
