Voting is a responsibility, not a choice as a citizen of this country.
I will vote for the person who has proven to be able to govern the United
States of America and I will vote for the party which has governed to
make women more equal citizens and has tried to govern for all Americans, not just talked about it or vote against.
I won’t throw away my vote on a third party nominee escapist choice nor not vote at all because the choices are not morally self-satisfying.
My parents and I chose to live here to escape the destruction that
communism brought to my country of birth. It destroyed part of my family, my home, my city and the democratic functioning my country for 50 years.
I will vote so that it won’t happen here. Life here too is very much on the edge. Not having a job, a place to live, not having food, not having healthcare.
Will history repeat itself here?
I will vote against the chance of that happening here and vote for
the Democratic nominee for President Hillary Clinton.
In the Clinton vs Trump contest, you have seen every political dirty trick (demonizing lies, voter suppression) in the book by Republicans who historically are well-known for them and should speak for itself to a thinking person.
If in power, Trump may evolve from a”rigged”paranoid/ “got all answers”megalomaniac to a narcissist psychopath like Hitler surrounded by nodding opportunist conservatives like Giuliani and Christi , business CEOs, banks, brokers, using the newly gained complete control power of the three parts of government to plunder the country’s assets,debase people support,safety net systems, destroy unions, using the underlying power to exploit natural resources ignoring the global warming crisis ,enabling money manipulations, unleashing the Laissez-Faire instruments that almost destroyed our financial system in 2008,causing the loss of tens of millions of jobs,bankruptcies of the largest and smallest businesses, millions of homes , banks, will make Pres.Bush’s Tsunami tenure launching two wars still shaking the Middle East look benign. The rest of the world will look on with anxious dread on a Trump, loose Machiavellian cannon, in control of a country whose currency is the world standard and react by withdrawing untold trillions in debt causing destabilization, leaving Trump’s unpredictable finger on the most powerful military weapons in the galaxy.
I’m voting for Hillary Clinton. In my opinion, permitting the set-up of a personal server was a failure of State Department IT discretion in the first place; and Benghazi was a tragic national incident, beyond any personal culpability. If anyone takes the time to visit the Hillary for America website, they will find detailed plans, discussion and achievements in all the major issue areas before our country. I broadly agree with most all of these proposals. And no one, in the history of the office, has ever been more experienced or better prepared to serve as President.
By contrast, among much else in which I am in fundamental disagreement, Donald Trump boasted that “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and wouldn’t lose voters. Okay. It’s like incredible.” My personal view is that I don’t want to be the somebody or anybody he shoots on Fifth Avenue. Maybe I just can’t tell the differences between what he says, what he means, and what he doesn’t mean. Every comment can be a surprise anger attack. What might he say to the U.N. General Assembly if he goes off script? To a graduating high school class? Does We his People include me?
Hillary Clinton is a true American heroine who has graciously served her country for decades and is a proven fighter and survivor having been viciously and frivolously attacked by fearful and cowardly opponents. Even Ken Starr now endorses Clinton.
Trump is a vicious serial liar, a failed businessman having declared bankruptcy seven times leaving small businesses, blue-collar laborers and entrepreneurs destroyed in his wake, greedy and selfish beyond any reasonable comprehension, a cowardly silver-spooned draft-dodger, an openly avowed racist who also publicly declared his hatred of Latinos based on their ethnicity, a boastful braggart that bragged about sexually molesting women based on his celebrity status, a coward who won’t release his tax returns because he’s scared of doing so, and praises, defends and elevates the enemies of America, including Putin at the same time belittling American heroes, champions and leaders. Trump is not a hero nor qualified in any way. He is a vulgar despicable coward.
