It appears like the November 2016 election for president of the United States could be a choice between Hilary Clinton, likely nominee for the
democrats and Donald Trump, likely nominee for the republicans. In my opinion neither one of these candidates would be a suitable choice for our
Hilary Clinton, former secretary of state during the Obama administration, has been operating for some time now under a cloud of
suspicion and mistrust resulting from her violation of National Security Rules and Regulations. She improperly utilized a private e-mail server which
jeopardized sensitive documents and made them vulnerable to being hacked by other countries with adversarial interests.
She ignored warnings of an attack on the American facilities in Benghazy Libya, and when the attack was actually taking place, she told
us that it was nothing but a You Tube video. Our ambassador in Libya as well as as three other people were killed. The entire incident was clearly
mishandled by Mrs.. Clinton. She took no steps to prevent it even though warned.
Hilary Clinton went right along with and encouraged Obama's misguided M.E. policies both in regard to a failure to lead the fight
against Isis as well as supporting the disastrous Iran Nuclear negotiations.
She also fully supports Obamacare which had made health insurance more costly for many Americans and has resulted in their having to
give up personal physicians they wanted to continue seeing.
There is no doubt that a Hilary Clinton presidency would be nothing less than four more years of failed Obama policies.
America needs to change direction and Hilary Clinton will stay the present course. Change is needed and she will not provide that
And that brings us to a discussion of Donald Trump, Hilary Clinton's possible opponent in November, 2016. He would be an even
greater disaster for America in my opinion. Mr. Trump is nothing less than an inarticulate bully and demagogue with no viable policies or solutions to
the many problems facing the country today. All he seems to be able to do is insult and demean anyone who disagrees with him.
In a recent debate, Sir Donald stated that he opposed the Trans Pacific Trade Agreement because China was a bad player and would
take unfair advantage of the other parties to the agreement. He didn't even know that China wasn't even a party to the agreement. A presidential
candidate is supposed to know his facts and do his homework!
This racial dividing candidate would set Muslims against Christians, deprive American citizens of their rights to freedom of
speech and assembly and make a mockery of the Constitution with excessive use of Executive Orders. Just recently he had his security people remove a
woman from one of his speeches because she was a Muslim, and had another person ejected for heckling him.
His anti Muslim attitude is actually helping Isis to increase their numbers of radicalized jihadist warriors thereby making acts
of terrorism even more likely right here at home.
And isn't it interesting that Mr. Trump is the only candidate in either party who seems to have the endorsement of Vladimir
Putin, America's most dangerous international adversary?
America doesn't need a racial bigot and inarticulate bully with no viable solutions to world issues to serve as it's
I'm still hoping that these individuals will be rejected as candidates by their respective parties and that America will
ultimately be given a different choice in November 2016. My suggestions as to alternative candidates will be the subject of another article coming
