Hillary Clinton Should Be the Next President - Not Donald Trump

Postby jasmine2 » 25 Oct 2016 02:02

Our country faces numerous challenges, from loss of jobs due to automation and outsourcing overseas, to climate change, terrorism, and multiple other national and international issues.

Election day is fast approaching. This has been the most exhausting, and often, disturbing presidential campaign which I can remember in my lifetime.

All presidential candidates have flaws.
Some circumstances in which Hillary Clinton has been secretive and less than truthful have exasperated me. However, I think that, overall, Hillary's character, sense of empathy and fairness, emotional steadiness, government experience, and ability to realistically analyse complex issues, all make her well qualified to be president.

In contrast, Donald Trump's epic narcissism, his addiction to lying and hate-mongering, sexism, admiration for despotic leaders, belief in conspiracy theories, and his great ignorance regarding numerous issues of great importance, all disqualify him to be president.

I recommend the following articles regarding the pros and cons of both presidential candidates.

(1) "Donald Trump's Ghostwriter Tells All" - The New Yorker - newyorker.com
Tony Schwartz, ghostwriter for Donald Trump's book, "The Art Of The Deal", provides insights regarding Trump's character and business deals.

(2) "The 281 People, Places, and Things Donald Trump Has Insulted On Twitter: A Complete List" - nytimes.com
There are thousands of entries.

(3) "All Politicians Lie. Some Lie More Than Others" - nytimes.com
Based on research by PolitiFact - See chart ranking percentages of candidates' statements, from "Pants On Fire" lies to Mostly True or True.

(4) "Against Donald Trump" - The Atlantic - the atlantic.com
The Atlantic Magazine has only endorsed 3 presidents in 159 years - Abraham Lincoln, Lyndon Johnson, and Hillary Clinton.

Congratulations! You can relax now.

Politics is about lying to get elected so you, your family, and all your friends can become millionaires.

I cant predict when economic reality will set in. We wont be able to afford the massive waste and debt forever. They will likely push too far money printing. Fake currency never lasts. Enjoy while you can.

Don't say 'should'. I could be a fatalist---in which case I could say that Trump should be president. :mrgreen:

There are a zillion reasons to feel cynical about the ongoing presidential election campaign. However, if cynicism totally immobilizes all rational attempts to try to fix many of the problems and injustices in our society, then we should all just kick dirt into the face of everything that is actually good about our nation, and move our entire population to North Korea.
