I never thought I’d write this blog…but here we are, about 10 months after everyone announced their run for president, and we’re down to four candidates, two on each side. That’s not the weird part. The weird part is who we have to choose from. I’m amazed it’s come to this. I truly am.
On the Republican side, we’ve got a guy whose campaign stops resemble a rambling diatribe of four letter words (he’s been better lately), accusations about his opponents, and wild-eyed platforms of what he wants to accomplish once he’s elected…and he swears he’s going to be elected. He’s running against a guy that has pulled some of the slimiest tricks of the campaign, while professing to be an Evangelical. Now, I don’t bash a religious choice of these guys, but that’s a little ironic that the most “Christian” person in the field is always surrounded by dirty tricks, and we’ve seen it more than once. He’s been accused of lying, though I’m not really sure. No one has proven anything on that account yet.
One the other side you’ve got a woman that has wanted to be president because it means she gets to be the first female president in US history. Oh, she says she’s going to fight for you, but she’s been caught more times than Ted Cruz lying about various things…and not just during this campaign, but her entire career. In fact, she was an attorney for the Democrats prosecuting Richard Nixon during Watergate and was fired because of her dishonesty. Almost forgot, she’s also embroiled in a criminal investigation that would land any of us in jail for a very, very long time. She’s hoping to skate because she knows the Attorney General personally. She’s running against an avowed socialist who’s 74 years old. That makes him five years older than Ronald Reagan when he ran for president in 1980. He’s an honest guy by everything I’ve been able to find out about him, but he’s had a very unremarkable career in the US Senate for 30 years. He’s done absolutely nothing there except convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. Certainly there are about 99 other people in that staid body that would make a better president than him.
So, can you see why it would be difficult to choose someone this time around? You’re damned if you do, and you’re damned if you don’t. About the only thing I’ll say is this: Protesters, yes, you have a right to protest, but don’t forget…when you start blocking motorcades, and screaming to shout down ANY of these candidates, you’re taking away their first amendment rights, which are just as important as your first amendment rights. I hope the people that disrupted the rally Donald Trump was holding in Fountain Hills, Arizona over the weekend are put in Sheriff Joe’s “Desert Prison” for a very, very long time! It was totally uncalled for. If someone did that to Hillary, every Democrat would be calling for jail time for the bastards who did it!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
