It’s Time to Vote!

If Donald Trump loses this election he will have been defeated by himself, not Hillary Clinton.  The same could be said for Hillary; had she a shred of honesty, her numbers would be surging ahead of Trumps by now.  Which is why most voters would rather have a do over than elect either of them.  If Trump stages an upset and wins….well, you need to read my next article coming out this evening.  I think you will agree with most of it!

But, whatever the final outcome today, there will be a few reasons to celebrate.  (see above quote).   We will have either elected a life-long liar and crook or an inexperienced, blunt New Yorker, who has said a lot of stupid stuff.   Personally, I’ll take the bluntness over being fed the liberal Pablum we’re so accustomed too.

Whoever wins, the nation will still be divided by race, immigration and class warfare, and that will be a great challenge to overcome.  Being a pessimist, I think few things will change for the better, because of partisan politics and the many hurdles “good ideas” always face in Congress.  I can only hope a Trump presidency would light a fire under these do nothing dopes…I have no hope Hillary would.

Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.” – Abraham Lincoln

However, here’s one key element depending on who wins, the future of the Supreme Court will be shaped for next 30 years.  So, the big question is, will the S.C. be slanted towards activism, interpreting the Constitution according to the times or will they vote a more conservative interpretation? Another reason to hope Trump gets in!

Also at risk is the GOP controlled Senate. The Republicans have 24 seats up for re-election, the democrats just 10. An unfavorable presidential turnout could weaken their chances, especially in the 10 GOP seats that are hotly contested. 2016 could be the year the GOP loses the Senate, but given their performance would anyone really notice?

The Washington Post opened with a summation early this morning, “In Michigan, the GOP nominee blasted his opponent as embodying Washington’s corrupt culture. In North Carolina, Clinton said the election would be “where we prove conclusively that, yes: love trumps hate.”

By noon Tuesday, voters across the country were making their choices. In North Hollywood, Calif., some voters brought beach chairs to stake out a place in line before dawn. At one polling station in Detroit, people waited up to 90 minutes to reach the ballot booth.

At Stonewall Middle School in Manassas, Va., nearly 170 people were lined up when voting began at 6 a.m.”

America isn’t ready for President Hillary Clinton. It should never be.” – Chuck Norris democratsue

Historically a large voter turnout tends to favor republicans, because younger voters and minorities are largely registered to vote democrat and this demographic has not been persistent voters, whereas the smaller, but more dedicated GOP voting block are.  They are steadfast voters, come rain or shine!

    Interesting analysis Jack.

    I think the one thing that never changes is the activism in the Democrat Party. You can bet they have already plotted ways to undermine a Trump presidency just in case he wins.

    Another thing that will not change is the educational system that continues to turn out brainwashed, PC students who in many cases lack the ability to think.

    I’m not as cynical as you are about the prospects of a Trump win. In the past two months he has shown he has the ability to perform in a dignified manner. As a newcomer to politics he faced a learning curve and he’s show himself to be a quick study. If he manages to be blessed with a republican Congress we will see changes in rapid succession that will profoundly effect the economy, healthcare, the border, the court, our military, and the ongoing war. We will see an end to stupid regulations and oppressive taxation which will, after a probable recession and/or popped bubble, see an economy that takes off like a rocket. People who think of Trump as a loose cannon misjudge the man. The phony liberal line that fears Trumps finger on the nuclear trigger is laughable; Trump is a practiced decision maker whose ego is tempered with humility. (You won’t find that trait in his rival.)

    I’m prepared to face a Hillary presidency but it will not bring the changes we need. She will fight to spend just as Obama has. She will nominate very liberal judges. She will continue to decimate the middle class. Right now there are more government workers than there are manufacturing workers (The 22,235,000 employed by government in the United States now outnumber the 12,258,000 employed in manufacturing by 9,977,000). The middle class cannot support a bureaucracy of that size. All the wealth in the world cannot sustain the bloat at the top sucking the life out of the producers of the nation.

    I’m also prepared for a Trump presidency…I look forward to my kids having more opportunity to work and build a future for themselves…I look forward to a more legal and sensible approach to the border and national security.

    As of December 31, 2016 more than half of my (adult) family will likely be without a good full time job. Those working presently are working part time jobs. We are the embodiment of the Obama economic legacy; we are the disappearing (mostly white?) middle class. That’s Obama’s and Hillary’s America but it is not the America we’ve known and love…an American filled with the American spirit. The malaise we felt at the end of the Carter years is thick in the air today. The message to voters today is as important and significant now as it was then.

    Trump through the years…prescient…thoughtful…caring. (And…he considered the possibility of a strong woman president)

    Yes, I look forward to a Trump presidency!
