The issue is that 90% of this stuff is absolute garbage (or satire) from either side.
So who do you support when the two choices make you want to hold your nose?
Hillary’s ethics issues are completely different, from Mr. Trump’s, but they’re on their own merit profoundly repugnant to many of us exactly the same. While Hillary’s skeletons have until lately been under lock and key behind closed doors, Trump has performed each and every one of his personal melodramatic gaffes & predatory business dealings in the gleaming light of the public eye.
This really doesn’t paint the idyllic scene we hoped for, but it’s the result of our own choices because whether we would like to acknowledge it or not; as a people we do ultimately control how it finishes.
If you did not desire Trump or Hillary, the time for deciding that was during the primaries, so there’s really nobody to blame but ourselves for this lose-lose choice we have this year.
What exactly do we do for this choice? I can’t believe it’s come to this, but: dismiss ethics… That’s right. There is not much to be had on both sides, so if your most important quality in a leader is integrity, then you candidate never made it out of the gate this season.
Who gives you the Supreme court choices you want?
Who gives you the immigration policy you desire?
The list goes on and on, but the point is that this season, character has been thrown aside. So what are we left with? We’re truly left with only one defining question: What will they do for or into the nation if they win?
Many of you despise one or both of these and are foaming at the mouth to point out their every flaw on either side, but it is pointless. To some degree that could be cathartic, but all of us have an A vs. B option to make this year unless you choose another option and effectively remove yourself from the process & permit the rest of us to select for you… Heck, as much as half the nation sits out almost every election and doesn’t even bother to register, so what is a few million more watching from the sideline snuggling with their preferred lost cause?
The choice is fairly clear once you look at the policies each candidate promotes. Regardless of which side you stand behind, this year integrity will not be a factor because both of them are critically flawed people and make all of us pray to God that the choice we make won’t go horribly wrong for us all in the end.
No matter what; one thing is almost always certain: You are not going to change my mind and I cannot change yours , but let us at the very least be adult about it and keep the conversation civil. Stop throwing insults at each other just because we select one”Bad Choice” over the other. Let’s not be like our existing candidates; let’s be civil with one another and respect each other’s choices in the way we each exercise our collective right to vote our own conscience.
You may think I’m an idiot and that I may think some people are confused & betrayed, but our choice of politics doesn’t make us good or evil, it only makes us Americans; doing the best we can with what we have.
I’ve seen family members disown each other over political views and that’s pure foolishness. When the dust settles, we’re all in this together and good or bad; we shall all end up paying the same price for our collective decision in the end, whatever that might be.
You will ultimately do one of three things: hold your nose and chose A or B, or run out of the conclusion and sit out and watch the rest of us choose for you. Don’t kid yourself; picking some other candidate IS sitting it out.
Just remember: Every time we make a choice, the people of this country have a chance and the hope all of us share is that by coming together as a nation to exercise that right, we could also help make this country better and stronger for all of us, and our children also.
God bless the Republicans; each one. .
