Since Mudpit Forum thread-creation rules are suspended for this emotion packed Presidential election, I'll just pose this thought, and 3 questions
for ATS members. No supporting documentation needed, since most people on the planet know the flaws of Presidential candidates Trump and
Republican DONALD J. TRUMP: An outspoken, horny, obnoxious, mega-rich, 70 year old entrepreneur.
Democrat HILLARY D. CLINTON: A sickly, crooked, lying, mega-rich, 68 year old politician.
The United States of America has not had Republican and Democratic Presidential nominees that fit these profiles in the past 2 centuries.
But, since AMERICAN VOTERS installed Trump and Clinton in their respective positions, one step away from leading our nation, they must be what
Americans are looking for. Right?
We're now exactly 1 month away from electing one of these 2 candidates as our President. I'm sure America didn't chose either candidate as their
party's nominee BECAUSE of their weaknesses. Most likely, they were voted for IN SPITE OF their weaknesses.
Question #1: I ask my ATS colleagues, when a voter steps into that voting booth in 31 days, which candidate will be hurt the most by their negative
traits? Does Trump's negatives, subtract from his positives more? Or, does Hillary Clinton's negatives, subtract from her positives more?
Speaking for myself, I can put up with Donald Trump's personality, because I FEEL that his ability to IMPROVE THE LIVES of more American citizens is
better than Hillary's ability to do so...even if she was a Saint. (That is my #1 Priority...Free college is further down my list.)
Others may place (almost) Free College as their #1 priority. They're willing to overlook Hillary's many weaknesses, because that's a benefit she
Questions #2 & #3: Personally, what is it that YOU would like to see accomplished.. and which candidate do you feel is best suited to do this, even
with so much negative baggage attached?
NOTE: I understand that many people are so disgusted, that you will vote for a 3rd party candidate, or not vote at all. Feel free to bypass this
thread if you're in either category. ATS family, please do not flame another member if he/she has a view that's different than yours. (Can't hurt
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts and reasoning regarding Trump vs Clinton.
