I am sitting here listening to Dr. Ben Carson defend Donald Trump on MSNBC. I just don’t get it. Listen, I am not the smartest guy in the world, I freely admit that, but I am smart enough to know the difference between bullshit and the truth. Not only can I see the difference I can smell the difference. I assume average Joe and Josephine Citizen can as well but apparently not everyone is willing too.
The End is Near
What I heard from Dr. Ben this morning is that without Donald Trump at the helm, America is over, think the Book of Revelation, Apocalypse, the complete and utter destruction of our country. Fear sells in elections, always has, always will. Fear sells better to a segment of our population than facts or solutions. The strategist and surrogates for Trump know this. When all else fails, and for Trump it has, talk loud, really loud, speak angrily and sell fear. “Our country’s going to hell”, “like medieval times”, “We haven’t seen anything like this, the carnage all over the world” words that if you say loud enough, and repeat enough times people will believe because they want to believe.
For those of us who wish cooler heads would prevail, that Donald Trump would focus on solutions rather than taking the scorched earth approach, it is not going to happen, it’s over, it was over before it could ever happen. If, and this is the big ass IF, if he has a path to the White House it will be by terrifying people. Convincing them that America is bad, that we, as a country are not better off now than we were eight years ago, and guess what, it isn’t going to get better without him and if Hillary Clinton is elected we are doomed. DOOMED!
Why I am voting for Hillary Clinton
I was asked so here you go;
1. Experience with other country’s– We live in a very small world and as wonderful as it might sound, we can’t build a wall to keep others out and US in. We will always be drawn into conflicts, but I prefer a Dove approach rather than Trumps Hawk approach.
2. Fair treatment of all Americans– I truly believe Clinton will treat everyone the same without prejudice or judgement. We have made a lot of progress on this point, we have a long way to go, I don’t want to go backwards.
3. Temperament- The job is not for the faint of heart. Look at the photos of past president over the course of their terms. I want someone who will not operate in a vacuum, someone willing to listen first rather than act, someone willing to think first rather than speak. Clinton has proven she is capable of the job on all those fronts.
4. Children- My future, your future, this countries future rest with educating, supporting, and providing opportunities for children to grow into citizens we can all be proud of. The gap is wide between those that have and those that have not. And in that gap are the children, our future. We need to narrow that gap. I believe Clinton will work tirelessly to do so.
Vote your heart
You can vote for whoever you want to, it is none of my business. But for your sake, our sake, this country’s sake, make your decision out of hope, faith and optimism, not out of fear. We are smarter than that.
