I’ve been concerned. I’ve been anxious. But much less so after last night’s “debate.” The good news about this election is that, as with all elections, the voting booth is private, and people can vote and there’s no need to report. My hope is that those undecided, and those supporting Drumpf, will consider last night’s “debate” and how unqualified is, that he is crass and flighty, blustery without substance, arrogant, unprepared and ill-advised. How many times did he say “I didn’t say that” when it’s documented that he did, over and over?
This isn’t about Hillary. I’m no fan. That’s public information. But I am assuredly against Drumpf and the view of “great” America he is pushing. It’s antihetical to all I’ve been working for, to my values, to the values and laws of this country, against the most fundamental tenets of Christianity, all those things that are, or should be, the determining factor in our votes. Things like the Constitution. I mean really, he touts “stop & frisk” when it’s been declared unconstitutional? And doesn’t cop to it when challenged? No, this guy has no business being President. Not on my watch.
And yes, after Feelin’ the Bern, this has been a horrible election season. I don’t want to think about it, yet am drawn to the train wreck. The prospect of voting for Clinton turns my stomach, there are so many reasons, and it’s disturbing that the Dems do not want to acknowledge the legitimacy of issues many of us have with Clinton, preferring shaming as an election strategy (just STOP it!). That makes the prospect of voting for Clinton even worse.
Meanwhile, people I know, though not many, are supporting Drumpf. I’ve been easy on them, really! Holding back… Just minor interjections now and then, a little reality therapy a la Glasser.
This debate, though, and Drumpf’s performance and lack thereof, to me means that it will be pretty hard to justify a vote for him. OH… MY… DOG!
And the coverage of this “debate” is so weird:
That people need to look up words like “stamina” and “temperament” is appalling. Yes, “cavalier” is more than a Chevy… and how about “caprice,” capisce?
