I concede that, before he became the nominee of the Republican party, Donald Trump was a bit of a playboy; acording to those who oppose him, he was not only a playboy, he was a womanizer. He loved woman and he may have sometimes made some unwanted advances toward them.
That was when Donald Trump was a multimillionaire real estate tycoon and he was free to say whatever he liked.
Today, years later, Donald trump is the overwhelming choice of Republican voters to be the next president of the United States. As president he won’t be perfect in his personal life, no president ever has been or will be. We all know that at least two modern era presidents, JFK and Bill Clinton, were widely known to aggressively pursue women, while in office. Did that make them bad presidents? Did that damage the country? I say no to both questions.
Is that what this election should be about? Again NO!
That is, however, what the Democratic party want’s it to be about because they are running on 8 years of failure in almost every category and, one has to believe that they see these last 8 years as a success.
We have an economy that has not seen the leadership necessary to dig its way out of the hole it went into because of 9-11, both Desert Storms, and bad decision making in the pre-Obama years. Not only did Obama not address our economic problems, he made them worse by creating an environment that led to the United States National Debt being the largest in our country’s history and by driving many companies out of the U.S. over taxes and regulations.
We have lost the respect of the world’s super powers; even that kid that runs North Korea ignores us.
We have the weakest military in decades at a time when it should be the strongest ever, to face the challenges of foreign aggression (i.e., Iran, Russia, and China.),
We have an unbelievable number of illegal immigrants in our country (estimated at 11.1 million for the 6th year in a row).
These are just some of our major challenges. Our next president will be either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. Which one of them can best address and fix these important problems? THAT is what this election should be about.
Both candidates have personal flaws. They both have said things in the past, as well as during their election campaigns, that are considered by some to be repulsive. They probably have both committed acts in the past that most would find repulsive. We know, for certain, that one of them has jeopardized national security and, if that candidate were not running for president with the full support of the current president and the Justice Department, that candidate would probably be in a Federal Prison. That is not political bias, that is a fact.
So which one of these admittedly flawed candidates will be able to fix the important problems being faced by our nation?
I am admittedly biased toward a Trump presidency! Here’s why:
Donald Trump is a successful businessman and therefore it follows, a successful problem solver. There is no reason to believe that he will not be able to appoint the right people to address the country’s problems, he’s hired thousands of the best problem solvers. There is no reason to believe that he will not successfully interface with world leaders; some say he’s too brash and he will start wars but that is nonsense. Look at it logically, as weak and disrespected as this country has become under Barack Obama’s leadership we are still the most powerful military force on earth; there is no country that would be willing to face the complete destruction that would result from going to war with us.
According to her own proposals, a Hillary Clinton presidency: would be damaging to our economy; would do nothing to erase the National Debt; would only make illegal immigration more of a social and economic problem, would enhance Obama Care; and would probably create more dangerous international deals like the Iran deal. Hillary Clinton would, no doubt, be Obama v2.
When you vote in November, focus on the big, important picture, not on personality quirks
