“The Republican Party has actually nominated for president an irresponsible, unrealistic, naive, petulant, childish, vindictive, prejudiced, bigoted, racist, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, misogynistic, fascistic, authoritarian, insensitive, erratic, disturbed, irrational, inhuman individual named Donald John Trump.
See 176 Reasons Donald Trump Shouldn’t Be PresidentTFA quoted on the right itemizes 176 reasons Trump should not become POTUS. You’d think a few would be enough, but no, USAians being polled are split four ways and it’s about even in the popular vote Trump v Clinton. This is madness. Let’s hope USA learns from the exercise and never does this again for a long time. While Clinton is far from perfect, her list of errors can be counted on one hand and stem from trying to be a public servant for decades. Meanwhile Trump was womanizing, bullying, bankrupting, and boasting about it all the time. Her foundation has saved millions of lives. His has paid out bribes and merely puffed up his ego. Trump has accounted for almost nothing of his accomplishments while Clinton’s are very public. What’s he hiding in his taxes? If Clinton had a conflict of interest connecting to a charity and US Dept. of State, how much larger will be the conflict when Trump’s empire of hundreds of businesses is run by family members? Every decision he makes will affect those businesses. Think he might lean to help them out? It’s a matter of scale. Clinton may have had $thousands of reasons to do something, Trump has $billions… Just do the maths.
* This title comes from Invictus, a poem about a proud person doing the right thing without regard to consequences. The poem is about noble causes and good things. Trump is just plain evil. The few times he’s said anything positive/uplifting in this campaign, it has been smoke and mirrors, not substance. His scroll is charged with way more than 176 egregious crimes. TFA’s list is just the beginning. Trump promises to do a lot immediately when he takes office. It would be a quick trip into tyranny and corruption.
