JULY 8 BLOG
As a Republican-that is an old line one- who would have voted for Wilke if the voting age had been 18 at that time, and one who due to the political reality** of local affairs has been a registered Democrat for years; I can only note my concern over this election’s two major parties potential nominee
For the next four and 2/3rds months we will be struggling with the knowledge that for the first time in my experience we are going to choose not from who the better person is but rather who is the lesser of two evils.
Our choice will be a Clinton who consistently skirts the law because they believe that they are above it and a Trump who not only believes that he is unto himself the law but can and will rewrite it..
As of this hour I cannot favor either Hillary or the Donald and hope to keep my blog free of bias although most to date have been critical of Trump.
Even as yesterday when Trump was rightly critical of the Attorney General’s decision to close the Clinton e-mail case, he had to express his admiration of Saddam Hussein. He who fought terrorism by execution without trial. In other words Dictatorship is preferred.
How can we support the Trump, who made millions in Atlantic City not through his boasted managerial skills but who withheld paying his small contractors entirely or settle for pennies on the dollar. A person whose expertise laid in marketing his name to investors burdening them with debts. And then getting out before the casinos became bankrupt. That was also a practice in his real-estate dealings.
Hillary got away with her ignoring email security by using a personal server because she, herself, did not share any sensitive information with another person; General Petraeus’s crime. Yet her habits of evading the truth, denial of wrong doing, and false statements were prominent in this case.
More in the future as the mud flies, meanwhile thank you Blackdog for your comments including notifications.
