Many people around the country believe the current American presidential race features the two worst candidates in the nation’s history, and that this is a pivotal election.
It is more than that.
These are two of the three worst candidates in American history, but this election, tragically, will seal the fate of the United States…forever. F.H. Buckley, a professor of law at George Mason University, states that if we elect Hillary, we will have chosen our leaders not only for the next four years but for the rest of our lives.
Many also believe that this is a stark-choice election between two polar opposites. It is not. Both Trump and Clinton have serious character flaws. Many, if not most, believe Trump is a boorish, inexperienced lout.
He is worse than that.
He is boorish, inexperienced (the least troubling of his bad “qualities”), loutish, vain, cocky, immature (at seventy-years-old, he often says things that would be embarrassing coming out of the mouth of a twelve-year-old), arrogant, incredibly thin-skinned, often exhibits poor self-control and is inarticulate and a bit of a bully. He is certainly not a true conservative. He is, as I’ve often pointed out, the Anti-Reagan (one of this writer’s favorite presidents).
Strong enough and honest enough words for you, Trump-bashers? I may have even added a few things to your list.
Mrs. Clinton, for her part, is demonstrably even worse. She is, and always has been, utterly careless about protecting sensitive information that could harm America- and Americans. She and Bill will sell their souls to the highest bidder(s). Always have. She, like Bill, is genetically incapable of telling the truth. She bashes Wall Street while accepting millions of dollars from it. She talks about the importance of higher-education and the unfairness of the high costs of attending an institution thereof, even as she personally soaks them for $200,000 to $300,000 per speech. She lost nine mobile devices during her time as Secretary of State. America is vastly less secure, respected and admired around the world as a result of her tenure- and President Obama’s. Unlike Trump, Clinton will continue to utilize “prosecutorial discretion” to negate existing U.S. immigration law, by executive order if necessary. She will double-down on Obamacare, pouring even more resources into a program that is obviously failing in a catastrophic way, while ushering in the single payer system. Remember, she was the first to propose this type of bogus healthcare reform back in the early ‘90s, but in those days the electorate was still gun-shy about a government takeover of one-sixth of the economy.
Speaking of gun-control…if Hillary and her new, hard-left Democratic Party take full control of power in the capital city, the Second Amendment is in serious jeopardy. Comically, Hillary believes climate change is a grave threat to national security, not realizing that she herself is the biggest such threat. She plans to have half a billion solar panels installed by the end of her first term. Unlike Trump, Hillary came out against the Keystone Pipeline and is hoping to greatly reduce oil consumption. She has a plan to increase taxes on the American people by $1.5 trillion. She wants to offer “free” college tuition. It won’t be free to the people who pay for it with their dramatically increased tax rates. Race relations will continue to deteriorate.
Hillary is the only presidential candidate in history to win the endorsement of Planned Parenthood, whose vice president called her “the strongest nominee we’ve ever seen.” She wants to see increased public funding for Planned Parenthood, something that even most Democrats oppose! She told Fox News Sunday that giving “undocumented workers” legal status is on her “must-do list,” to which host Chris Wallace asked whether she thought she would have authority to do that. Her reply? “Whoever is president gets to determine what the priorities are.”
You can bet the “Fairness Act” and other such bald-faced attempts to forever silence any and all conservative opposition will be revisited immediately upon her election. Direct marketing savant Richard Viguerie, himself a conservative, states that Hillary “will be Obama on steroids in terms of moving the country to the left. They’ll now be in their third term, and I think that they will do what they can to destroy all of their opponents.” The Clintons have a history of doing just that.
Hillary also is on record as averring she will use government force to attempt to exterminate Christian’s faith. Here is her remark to the Women’s World Summit on April 23rd, 2015: “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated religious beliefs have to be changed.”
Additionally, there is her desire to transfer U.S. sovereignty to the U.N. and one-world governance. The Obama administration has famously eschewed any action taken unilaterally by the U.S., and Hillary is more than willing to attempt to dramatically strengthen the transnational-progressive agenda that directly contravenes the Constitution of the United States.
And then there is the Supreme Court. Of all the many important policy differences amongst the two tragic-comically flawed candidates, their decisions regarding the Supreme Court may well be the most important. The court’s liberals vote as a bloc on major issues much more often than its conservatives do (which should tell a sentient being something in itself). If Hillary wins, they would take control of the court for the first time since 1971.
Economist Steven Moore, a Newsmax magazine contributor, recently said: “If Obama/Clinton wins a third straight presidential race, there won’t be a conservative movement left to rebuild…this will be one of the greatest victories for liberal governance of all time.” Some prominent economists have said that if Hillary wins America may face financial ruin before her first term is up. If she is elected it will be proof positive that Americans have turned their backs on effort and accountability, freedom and responsibility, and now prefer being taken care of by an enormous government that treats them like livestock…not quite realizing that they will figuratively share the livestock’s destiny. In that case, “America,” that unique idea that set the world on fire and gave freedom, hope and succor to untold millions, will cease to be, replaced by a bunch of people on a large parcel of land, tolerant even of their own shackles.
In summation, let me make one thing perfectly clear: the most immediate existential threat- the “clear and present danger”- to the United States…is leftism.
For all his prodigious faults, Trump would very likely surround himself with experienced, qualified, competent, mature adults. Rudy Guliani has been mentioned as a likely head of Homeland Security. Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Scott Walker, Rick Perry and even Ted Cruz, who recently fulfilled his earlier promise to support the eventual Republican nominee (despite that nominee’s personal attacks on him and his family), are among an array of potential cabinet members. The crux of the matter is that Hillary will almost certainly assemble a cabinet much like herself, a deeply troubling notion, whereas The Donald would almost certainly assemble a cabinet of near polar opposites, a soothing notion indeed.
It is a tough decision to vote for a Donald trump. Life sometimes presents us with tough decisions. God forbid, if your spouse or offspring were in a coma and on life support, and there was any chance they would be able to survive in some sort of vital and positive sense, for their own and others benefit, even if in a diminished capacity, wouldn’t you take that chance rather than pulling the plug? Most of us would.
In this election, as twisted, bizarre, ironic, incredible- and distressing- as it may seem, a non-vote or a vote for anyone but Trump is manifestly a de facto vote for Hillary Clinton…and the extermination of the United States of America and everything for which its founders stood.
