Some of my thoughts.
I'm disappointed by the things coming out about Trump, but not really surprised.
I grew up in a small town & when I moved to a large city, I found out life as I had known it,
was not 'real life'. Apparently I had lived a
very sheltered life. I wasn't naive though.
I just had always thought that most people were basically good & you could usually tell a person's true character just by carefully observing the
small, supposedly insignificant things that they did.
I had a very rude awakening! And quickly went from being an optimist to a realist!
Guys who seemed like perfect gentlemen, morphed quickly when other people left the room! The supposedly best friends, of the guys
that I dated, coming on to me when my bf left the room! My girlfriends boss, people who came into my work place, it was disheartening!
I was fairly shy & not outgoing back then, which made it even harder for me!
I had to quickly learn how to deflect & snappy, funny comebacks...it was very stressful!
When I met my future hubby, a whole new scenario presented itself. Men weren't the only ones! Women were coming onto him! Even when we were out
together! Was there no sisterhood?
I think the more dangerous people, are the ones who are very good at hiding their real 'faces'!
How many people have said later about serial killers/mass shooters, "He was quiet, kept to himself." Or, "I can't believe he could do something like
this!" "He seemed like a regular guy."
At least with Trump, we know what we are getting! And I really believe he can save our economy!
JFK comes to mind. He was supposedly well thought of. Kept us out of a nuclear war. Did people's opinion of him change years later when 'things'
started coming to light? Did his side 'hobbies' keep him from doing his job?
Mike Huckabee is the only candidate that I really liked. He seems to have a good character. But he is so soft spoken & polite, he wouldn't have stood
a chance in Washington I'm afraid!
Then there's Hillary. I have always gotten a creepy feeling with her! From way back. But when she said after the Benghazi deaths, "What does it matter
now?" That did it for me!
Not to mention all the collateral damage surrounding the Clintons. Meaning 'suicides'!
I guess what I'm trying to say is, we can never really know everything about a candidate. They all wear faces. Heck, how well do we really know the
people in our own lives? I'm less worried about an, in your face, this is how I am, take it or leave guy, than a sneaky, gets away with murder &
I read a very good article once on all the charitable things that Trump has done without any publicity. To me that says a lot!
I have never seen where Hillary has done anything except for herself!
Very telling if true!
Just my 2 Pence! Lol!
