This year, we have two unappealing candidates for president from which to choose. The question is, will we choose based on style or based on substance?
On style, I can’t stand either of the candidates. Trump is rude and crude. Hillary is a shrill, vicious liar.
Obviously, we should choose based on substance. And on substance, Trump wins hands down.
Hillary Clinton’s leftist policies are designed to keep people helpless and dependent on government. Donald Trump’s policies are designed to help people grow and make the most of their God-given potential so they will be free and able to take care of themselves and their families without government interference.
Hillary Clinton takes the left-wing position that the US is a bad, imperialist country that needs to be cut down to size, while Trump loves this country and wants to make it great again.
Clinton opposes fracking and the development of our fossil fuel resources, based on discredited computer models. Trump favors fracking and the development of our fossil fuel resources, which will help grow our economy. The development of our own natural resources also will permit us to stop feeding the beast of Islamic extremism.
Hillary Clinton would choose supreme court justices who treat the Constitution like toilet paper, destroying the rule of law in this country and causing it to become a third world, tin pot dictatorship. Trump at least says he would nominate people who would respect the Constitution and the rule of law. This is very important, because it will set the foundation of this country for the next forty years.
Trump wants education options for our children. This is extremely important if we are to prepare them to be successful in today’s competitive world environment. Clinton wants to keep children trapped in government schools that do not provide a good education, because she has sold out to the teacher’s unions who want to keep their monopoly on education and want to avoid any competition.
Trump is reality-based and outcome-based. If he sees that one of his policies is not working as planned, he will change it. Clinton is ideology-based. If her policies are not working, she will double down on them as leftists always have done in the past.
The fact that Hillary has sold out this country’s policies in order to put money into her own pocket should trouble everyone. The fact that she used a private server in order to try to hide her corruption, thereby making our state secrets available to hackers and probably costing many lives, also should bother people. She has proven that she cannot be trusted with state secrets.
This is no time to sit on the sidelines in order to avoid dirtying our hands. Politics is a dirty business, and we have an obligation as citizens to be involved in order to elect the person who will be best for the country and then, after the election, to hold that person accountable.
