How can Donald Trump make America great again when he has made so many of us embarrassed to be Americans?
How can we trust a man who is so willing to accuse other people of wrong-doing? Just because Trump shouts out, over and over again, that “Hillary is a crook” and “should be in prison” doesn’t make it true. I remember being taught that the people who are quickest to accuse other people are often guilty themselves. To paraphrase William Shakespeare, in Hamlet, “[he] doth protest too much, methinks!”
How have we gotten to such a point in our nation’s history that a candidate for President of the United States can make false accusations, ridicule and bully people, make sexually inappropriate comments to women, brand the citizens of whole nations and the worshipers of an entire religion as evil and as a threat to our public safety, and make outlandish promises without ever actually saying what he intends to do?
Even more difficult to fathom is the willingness of millions of American voters to believe everything Donald Trump has to say and jump on his bandwagon as if he is going to save our nation. He has already done more harm to America than any other public figure in our lifetimes and he has only run for President. He has brought out the worst in us, not the best. One can only wonder how much harm he can do if he actually gets elected to the Presidency?
We cannot possibly solve our nation’s problems and face the challenges of the 21st Century until we can find common themes on which the American people can unite. What Trump is doing is dividing the American people to such a degree that it seems improbable that we can ever work together to serve the best interests of the population, in all of its diversity. The only way he can possibly accomplish anything that he is promising will be to impose his will on the people and that means abandoning our democratic principles.
Is this the America we want for our children and grandchildren? If it is not, then please vote this coming Tuesday and that means voting for Hillary Clinton. Whether or not we agree with her on every issue, this women is guilty of none of the insane accusations that have been made, rather she has worked her entire life to help make things better for people. And, to suggest that this makes her responsible for all of the things that have gone badly is beyond ridiculous.
Read what Bill Weld, the Libertarian Party’s candidate for Vice President, and the former Republic Governor of Massachusetts had to say about Clinton. In an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, William Weld said: “I’m here vouching for Mrs. Clinton.”
“I have a lot to say about Mrs. Clinton that has not been said by others recently and that I think needs to be said. I mean I’ve known her for 40 years. I worked with her, I know her well professionally. I know her well personally. I know her to be a person of high moral character. A reliable person and an honest person, however Mr. Trump may rant and rave to the contrary.”
Talking about the massive difference between the Democratic and Republic party candidates, Weld said, “One would be chaos for the country, I think. And the other would be a very business-like and capable and competent approach to our affairs.”
How you vote in this Presidential election may be the most important thing you will ever do for your country!
