It’s a scary thought that the country is in the hands of one person. But this year it seems even scarier because in just a few short months the fate of everyone living in the United States will lie in the hands of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, and the question is who is worse.

“Make America Great Again” is the famous slogan that won over some of the American people. When Donald Trump advertises and sells that line, I see no  hope behind it. There is no plan to carry out the idea. With being a person comes impulse, whether it is with purchases or speaking. Donald Trump has a bad habit of saying what he thinks. Clearly, he has never been taught to “think before you speak.” Every week it is something new where he makes a stupid comment that stirs up trouble. For example, according to Trump he “…will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.” Now, there is no chance that he can expect to make a country pay and do forced labor for the wall when that will only deplete their chances of opportunities and chances at a new life in America.

Another trait that brings out Trump’s worst side is his lack of understanding and narrow-mindedness. What Trump does not understand is how what he says and  affects others. He only accepts one type of person…anybody like him, which no one should aspire to be. The biggest concern is if Trump really wants to be president and do good or if maybe he is in it just for the fame and power.

 

On the Democratic side, we do not have much of an option either: Hillary Clinton. First, comes first, the controversial

issue of her criminal status.  Clinton at the moment can not be described as anything more than a criminal who should be sitting in a jail cell right about now. Behind the backs of everybody, Hillary was using a private email account and emailing out classified documents. Hillary was under investigation after the 15,000 emails were released by the FBI, but the charges were not recommended by the FBI, possibly due to her elite status. She is not the first women president we would want the youth to be looking up to. The only thing keeping her outside of the prison walls is her status. It is hard to trust someone that went behind everyone’s back and put us all in danger. Clinton is also a liar in that she claimed she was under a sniper attack in Bosnia. 

Clinton is also a liar in in that  she claimed she was under a sniper attack in Bosnia. According to Clinton, “I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead, we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.” Unfortunately for her and thanks to the internet, there is a video of her happily getting off the plane, getting her followers, loving life.

Even though we have never had a female president, f we would rather not see her go down in history books as the first female president and Bill Clinton as the first man of the white house.

With only two months to go, it’s time to make a decision between the heartless and impulsive Donald Trump and the backstabbing liar Hillary Clinton.

    Interesting points chosen for your article and I applaud you for putting ‘pen to paper’ so to speak, A difficult choice for my vote on the surface.

    When one digs a bit deeper; however, the choice is, for me, quite clear.

    Our system is built on checks and balances across the three branches of government. Should any one branch amass more ‘power’ than the other three, that balance is offset.

    I submit that our government is at a tipping point with regard to power amongst the branches.

    Should I vote for Hillary, who by all counts will continue to appoint judges more in line with her ideology (arguably similar to our current President), or should I vote for Trump, who is more likely to appoint judges more centrist-to-right, thereby counter-balancing the past eight years?

    Hillary, it appears, has the majority of the press behind her and a large portion of the Democratic members of Congress.

    Trump, it appears, as little press behind him, and quite a few less Republican members of congress than Hillary has Democrats behind her.

    Do you want a President who will be held accountable by the Legislative and Judicial branches, (not to mention the press), or do you want a President likely to ‘get away with more’ and who may tip the power of the Executive branch so far the pendulum may never swing back to center?

    Food for thought and not an argument I have seen in many places.

    Best regards for the future.
