Two Poor Choices. Maybe Some Good From It

For years, we’ve always heard the phrase “Choosing the lesser of two evils” when it came to Presidential elections. This year, it’s more true than ever. The Republicans have a candidate that is less than conventional, to say the least. Crude and vile comes to mind when hearing his words.The Democrats have a candidate that is just as bad in her personal life and in her public life is as dishonest as they come. The Republican Party is made up of a bunch of wimps showing exactly why someone like Donald Trump has a real chance at winning the Presidency. The Democrat Party has a bunch of sheep that will follow their candidate, make excuses for their candidate and act as though she can do no wrong and anything negative said about her is only because she’s a female.

Then there is the press. They don’t report, they judge. They edit their words to reflect their bias while trying to appear above it all although they don’t give great effort to hide that bias.  

Donald Trumps comments that were aired on Friday, October 7 from 11 years ago only showed that he thought himself better than anyone because of his success in show business. He claims it was locker room talk. I’ve been in locker rooms when I was a teenager  playing football, basketball and baseball, and while he’s right, bragging about conquests of girls, whether they are truthful or not, are said in locker rooms in high schools and junior high schools across this country. They are said by teenagers who have little control over their raging hormones and even less of a handle on their ability to be tactful or respectful. I have never heard the exact words about grabbing genitalia that he used, but the idea was still there. It also goes on in girls lockers rooms and even in the parties that women put on where they are selling their sexy lingerie and toys to each other like they were Tupperware parties. None of that makes any of it right. None of that justifies Trump saying it age the age of 59. It’s childish and I hope he was very embarrassed in talking about it with his wife and his kids. Not just his daughters.

One thing we can be certain of is that we haven’t heard the last of it. There is more to come.

On the exact same day that Trumps taped comments were put out there for all to hear, Wikileaks put out their first batch of hacked E-mails of John Podesta, who is Hillary’s campaign chairman. Do we know which was leaked first? Did they put out Trumps, and then Hillary’s E-mails? Or did they put out Hillary’s E-mails, then Trumps tape? They both came out within virtually minutes of each other.

Those E-mails included comments by Hillary that she has a public position on issues but also has a private position on those same issues. Say one thing to get elected but do another thing once elected. Recently, she said that half of Trump supporters were a basket of deplorable that were irredeemable. Now in those E-mails, it’s shown that she called Bernie Sanders supporters a bucket of losers. It was also revealed in the E-mails that Hillary wants open trade and open borders.

In the first debate, Hillary brought up the woman that was Miss Universe over 20 years ago and things that Trump supposedly had said about her. We got to spend a week hearing about that and then how that girl had threatened the life of a judge in her home country, and how she’d been in some porn videos.

Then there is the Republican’s in the Senate and House and even some governors and former governors that have rescinded their endorsement of Trump over the language used in that tape.

We are less than a month from the election. In fact, on the day that the E-mails and the Trump tape was released, I received in my mail my absentee ballot. What do the Republicans expect to happen by pulling their endorsements?

Do they think that Trump will drop out of the race? I’d be very surprised if that happened. His ego is too large for him to back out over words stated 11 years ago. If that was their bluff to get him to drop out, they should have thought through their plan a little better. What other choice do they have to vote for? Are they really going to switch to the Libertarian, Gary Johnson? Gary Johnson is walking proof that pot smoking impairs the memory.

Are they going to vote for Hillary? Do they really want to have Hillary in the White House taxing the nation into a depression or have her husband Bill wandering the halls of the White House grabbing every intern in sight?

The next President will be named either Trump or Clinton. To not vote makes them what they complained about in 2012 where Republicans stayed home because Romney wasn’t good enough. To vote for anyone but those two only makes them appear petty and they should give up the seats they are elected to fill.

Donald Trump beat out 16 other candidates. He beat some very good Senators, Governors and former Senators. He beat out two non politicians which were part of that 16. At some point, the Republicans are going to have to face the fact that they have a very flawed candidate who is head and shoulders better than the Democrat opponent. But don’t get the idea that being better than Hillary makes Trump a good president.

So far, the Republicans are showing themselves to be wimps. If they were smart, they would stand up and say that they don’t condone Trumps remarks but that going to Hillary would be infinitely worse and then figure out that if they want to get things done for the country, they will have to work to keep Trump in check. They might actually have to do their job and start sticking to policy and keeping Trumps feet to the fire on all that he tries to implement.

This is not about what they want. It’s not about what the Democrats want. It is about what the American people want and what is best for the United States of America. We have a Constitution that is at risk if Hillary is elected. We have a Supreme Court that is at stake and could set this country back for the next 30 years if Hillary is elected. We have borders that will disappear if Hillary is elected. Health care in this country is at stake. The government will be your new doctor if Hillary is elected. This election is about Liberty and Freedom. If Hillary is elected, we’ll all be under the submission of what amounts to be a tyrannical government.

Our country is in danger of disappearing with either one of these candidates. With Hillary, we’re assured that we’ll lose freedoms. If Trump is elected, we at least have a chance. It may be a slim chance, but it’s still a chance.

I can see no way for either party to bounce their candidate out. Early voting has already begun. The only way it will change is if one of the candidates chooses to drop out, then it will be their Vice Presidential nominee that would fulfill the nominees place (and I’m not sure that’s 100% accurate).

The House could decide that regardless of which one wins the election, they could start impeachment proceedings right after the inauguration. But that would look like they are thwarting the will of the people.

For the Republicans to back away and all but give the election to Hillary Clinton is selfish on their part and only shows that what’s important to them is their own self interests and the country means nothing to them.

This is a time for them to stand up and tell Trump that they understand that this happened 11 years ago but that if he has current activities that stain the Presidency, they will not hesitate to punish him with the appropriate measures and party unity will not be taken into account if he’s elected President.

While it’s right that the Republicans not just follow Trump because he is a Republican, it’s wrong for them to abandon the people that are voting for Trump because he’s the better choice between he and Hillary.

Finally, there is the press. Have you seen the following reported? (Editing to clean up foul language is mine).

-  “Just get that [F-ing dog] out of my way,” said to Secret Service K-9 handler.
- “Where is the GD flag? I want the GD f***ing flag up every morning at f***ing sunrise”. Hillary to staff at the Arkansas Governor’s mansion on Labor Day 1991. From the book “Inside the White House” by Ronald Kessler, p. 244
- “F**k off! It’s enough I have to see you s**t-kickers every day! I’m not going to talk to you, too! Just do your Gd job and keep your mouth shut.” Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with “Good Morning.” From the book “America Evita” by Christopher Anderson, p.90
- “If you want to remain on this detail, get your f***ing ass over here and grab those bags!” Hillary to a Secret Service Agent who was reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands free in case of an incident. From the book “The First Partner” p. 25
- “Stay the f**k back, stay the f**k back away from me! Don’t come within ten yards of me, or else! Just f**king do as I say, Okay!!?” Hillary screaming at her Secret Service detail. From the book “Unlimited Access” by Clinton ‘s FBI Agent-in-Charge, Gary Aldridge, p.139
- “Where’s the miserable c**k sucker?” (otherwise known as “Bill Clinton”) Hillary shouting at a Secret Service officer. From the book “The Truth about Hillary” by Edward Klein, p. 5
- “You f**king idiot” Hillary to a State Trooper who was driving her to an event. From the book “Crossfire” ~pg. 84
- “Put this on the ground! I left my sunglasses in the limo. I need those f**king sunglasses! We need to go back!” Hillary to Marine One helicopter pilot to turn back while in route to Air Force One. From the book ” Dereliction of Duty” p. 71-72
- “Come on Bill, put your d**k up! You can’t f**k her here!!” Hillary to Gov. Bill Clinton when she spots him talking with an attractive female. From the book “Inside the White House” by Ronald Kessler, p. 243

Notice these are all sourced, yet the mainstream press doesn’t put this out there for you to make an informed decision about someone who was first lady. But they’ll repeat the exact words that Trump used 11 years when he was a private citizen.

In the first debate, Lester Holt lobbed softball questions at Hillary but not Trump. The only time he mentioned the E-mail controversy was after Trump brought it up and then turned to Hillary and said “is there anything you’d like to say about the E-mail?’ If that's a difficult question, anyone could do their job! 

In the debate last night, the second question he asked Hillary answered for 3 minutes uninterrupted, but Trump got one minute before he was stopped. When the crowd cheered at Trumps comments, they were told not to applaud, but when the crowd cheered for something Hillary said, no admonition was given.

We have two flawed candidates to choose from this year. We have a press that will only report what they choose to report based on their own biases. Should we give up hope that this election can still turn out something other than Hillary? No. There was an election a couple of months ago in England about whether or not they should leave the European Union. The polls all said it was safe that the EU would remain intact. Even our President came out in favor of the EU. But the people spoke and the election went the other way.

Each vote is needed to offset the illegal aliens that will be voting. To thwart Hillary and her accomplices in the press. The result may very well be that we have the best of two very bad candidates, but at least it’s the people choosing and not the establishment choosing for us. But only if we vote!

If by some miracle the Republicans in the House and Senate get their act together and we get Trump as President, the best of two bad choices, we may actually get a congress that pays attention to the people for a change and keeps the Presidents feet to the fire to be sure things that are done are done calmly and with great deliberation. We just might get something good out of the bad choices we have. 

We've elected one man because of his color and got a very bad President out of it. There were many better men and women of color than the one we got. There are better women to hold the office of the President than Hillary Clinton. Voting for her for the sake of getting our first female President is just as wrong as electing the wrong black man. Now we're down to two choices that are both bad. One of those choices is in it with the country in mind. The other is in it to make a name for herself. She has already done that in a bad way. Making her President is not going to correct what she's done to herself. 

Vote. It may be your last chance to have a say in your government!
