The internet is a wonderful place for information. It’s an even better place for mis-information. And to be honest with you, I’m not really sure which is which when it comes to the health of Hillary Clinton. She swears that she’s healthy enough to be president. Of course, so was William Henry Harrison…until he caught pneumonia and died 30 days later. On the other hand, there’s an awful lot of bad information out there floating around, and yes, there are people who believe it or not, would start negative rumors about a candidate they don’t like. I’m not one of them. I want the facts.
Unfortunately, that’s not all that easy to get to. I’ve read all of the documents on both sides that I can find on Hillary’s health. Yes, it does appear, as Rudy Giuliani says, that there is something wrong with the candidate. But that could also be internet hype. Is she sick? If so, regardless of her hopes and dreams to become president, she owes it to the American public to fess up. If not, then the people that are spreading rumors ought to be punished. But then again, that trust factor creeps into the picture, doesn’t it? This is exactly why, as I have said numerous times, you have to be honest with people from the start. You can’t be a liar (and she is), and expect people to believe you. They just won’t. So, if Hillary isn’t sick, then she’s partly to blame because we just can’t believe anything that she says.
And I’m not letting Donald Trump skate on this one either. He won’t release his income taxes…which is something every presidential candidate for the last fifty years has done. He says it’s because he’s under an IRS audit. OK, then release a tax return that isn’t being audited…I’m sure you’ve got several out there. Look, either there is something to hide in there (like the liberals are saying he’s taking money from Russia), or it’s just a crappy internet rumor. Either way, let the truth come out and let the American people decide. It’s the same damn thing as Hillary’s healthy. And frankly, there aren’t a lot of people that are going to wade through your tax return…so what if they find that you only pay 15% taxes and that secretary in Des Moines, Iowa pays 22%? You probably pay your CPA a little more than she does. Just be honest.
I’m getting really tired of politicians, and it cuts both ways, that won’t be honest with the American people. They don’t feel that we can take the truth, or that the truth won’t set them free, it will kill them. The truth may hurt sometimes, but I can’t honestly tell you a time when in the long run, it hasn’t been the best option. Just ask Richard Nixon. Ask Bill Clinton. Ask any number of congressmen and women who have lied to us about any number of topics.
Is Hillary sick? Is Donald cheating on his taxes? Let’s find out the truth. And let’s do it both ways before November 8th, shall we? The best way to do this is get both to sign a pledge. If Hillary IS sick and is lying about it, she forfeits the presidency if she wins. If Trump wins and he’s lying about something in his taxes, and it’s not just about an IRS audit, then HE forfeits the presidency. In both cases the other party gets it. Fair enough?
Carry on world…you’re dismissed.
