Donald Trump is not a good man and how he has become candidate for President of the United States still baffles me. Video of him talking about his celebrity privilege to interact with women in an inappropriate way was brought to light yesterday and has created a firestorm for the candidate.
He is a boorish bully. Trump by his own words has demeaned women, minorities, the disabled and so many more. His running mate is not safe for the LGBTQ community because of laws passed during his term of Governor of Indiana. Republicans continue to look to the hard right in nominating their candidates which really never works out for those who vote for them. I also feel that the right-wing is using Christians to perpetuate and advance agendas that work against the least of these and those on the fringes.
Achieving peace doesn’t mean advancing war to get there. Too many men and women have been sent to the front lines unnecessarily. People like me support our military, we just don’t want them to have to go war without a really good reason.
If elected, Donald Trump would put the country and even the world in peril. Not only his temperament but his world view is troubling and somewhat dangerous.
My candidate for President, Hillary Clinton is not without issues. She is still by far the best choice at this time for America. She has the all the qualifications and the experience of being in government that will help people. There is also a historic element of her possibly being the first woman to be elected President of the United States. People bring up her emails and Benghazi but after spending millions of dollars in prosecuting and persecuting her there hasn’t been anything that to me is a massive red flag.
With all due respect, I think the GOP should be thinking about 2020 when they will have a chance at a do-over. The person they nominated is not a safe person to have in a school-house or even the White House.
There is a debate tomorrow which should be interesting. Let’s see how both candidates will respond to average, everyday people.
