Who’s the right choice? What is best for America? Trump? Clinton? Johnson (Libertarian)? Stein
Not voting? Please consider the following facts.
Mr. Trump has denigrated women, blacks, those with disabilities, Latinos and just about everyone else.
He has repeatedly slandered Hispanics. Mr. Trump has told us that Mexico is sending us criminals and rapists. This is false and we all know it..
Mr. Trump suggested we pull out of NATO and not support NATO allies who don’t pay membership..
How will America respond if a NATO country is attacked? Let ‘em be overrun? Leave ‘em hanging out?
His own party has condemned him. Mitch McConnell (a leader of the Senate majority, a strong opponent of the Democrats) has spoken out against Mr. Trump on multiple occasions., Ted Cruz, George Bush, Mitt Romney, John Kasich, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham are but a few of the rockribbed Republicans who will not support Mr. Trump. This month Trump has attacked leading Republicans who don’t support him.
Mr. Trump has demeaned one of the Republicans’ shining starsSenator John McCain saying he isn’t a hero. Mr. Trump said that a real hero wouldn’t have been captured. Senator McCain, an American of the first class, was a prisoner of war for over five years during the Vietnam war. Mr. McCain is and always will be a hero. If that’s not enough Mr. Trump has called our military a disaster. Trump has suggested Russia hack into Ms. Clinton’s emails. On multiple occasions he has praised Russian Premier Vladimir Putin. Suggesting that an adversary commit espionage on the U.S. does not fit the definition of an American leader
He has refused to release his federal tax returns. Those who are knowledgeable of the tax laws say that his claim that he is unable to release his tax information because of an audit is false. Trump can release his tax information any time. In July The Wall Street Journal suggested that those tax documents might show a financial connection with Russians or with Putin.
Law and order was mentioned so often in his acceptance speech that it echoed dictators, despots and tyrants of the past. He boasts that he is the ONLY one who can fix America’s problems.
There isn’t space to list all of Mr. Trump’s offenses.We should look at his record of public service. Is there any?
Clinton is the other viable candidate. Like her or not she has expeience, intelligence and political savvy.
Why in God’s name did she use her private email while serving as U.S Secretary of State then lie about it to the FBI? At the very least those two events are irrational.
We should look at her public service record of twenty five years.
If you find yourself backing a Presidential candidate who disses women and minorities, bullies and
belittles those with disabilities, invites our enemies to influence our presidential election, praises our foes, criticizes our military is he really the kind of American you support? Really?
Trump isn’t worthy of your vote. He’s a “very bad man.” I find it hard to vote for Clinton. Should you and I just not vote or vote for someone who will lose? Definitely not. That will only help Mr.Trump. The voting booth is a private place. Make the morally right decision.
Look at our beautiful “Salado Creek” at the low water bridge. Thanks to Mayor Skip Blancett, Billy Helm, his truck drivers and the group of volunteers: these few took on the task of “cleaning it up” and what a wonderful job they did. It’s amazing what few working together can achieve. You guys made hundreds of Salado residents very happy. A big thank you.
Some 60 years of “gradualism” have brought our nation to the brink of “self-destruction” The corrupt two party system; some 545 elected and/or appointed “servants of the people” are outnumbered by 320 Million citizens. All we have to do is vote for the candidate whose record of 30-plus years as one of the world’s most successful “world wide land developers” or vote for a candidate “lacking moral fortitude.”
When challenged on any event, her stock reply is to obfuscate and say that’s old news, let’s move on.
The number one presidential challenge is to protect and defend our nation from any threat both domestic and foreign. A WWII slogan come to mind that describes her succinctly, “Loose Ships Sink Ships.” There is little doubt she compromised our nation’s secrets as the drip-drip-drip release of her emails demonstrate.
To the Editor:
I just wanted to say a big heartfelt “thank you” to the family of Virginia Matthews for putting together the retrospective showing, lovingly sharing her creations of artwork to celebrate the 50th year of the Historic Salado Art Fair of which Virginia was one the founders. And also for opening up the Baines House, Virginia’s house, to all of us, and treating us to their generous table of delicious goodies. It was a joy to see her whimsical stitched and painted pieces again and to be in her house bringing back good memories of such a gracious, kind, and lovely Texas lady. She was the first person to welcome me to Salado with her warm and friendly ways. We got to be good friends, working in her beloved shop “ The Women’s Exchange” where if you brought something to sell there then you also helped out a day a week. Well she did so many wonderful social and meaningful things for Salado and we are all better for it.
