Class is not a condition of birth in the United States. The poor and rich can trade places; this is the savory allure of competitive capitalism. The only true “class” construct in the US is the reality of the political-ruling class. Once elected, politicians become untethered from accountability, committed to benefiting themselves. We’re right to be suspicious of “politicians” because the story never changes; ever-higher taxes, over-regulation, intrusion and disruption of our lives.
A common sentiment heard repeated across party lines is the desire to see the country run like a business yet we have never elected such a candidate. Presidents are hatched from the political class. Trump offers our first non-political, business background candidate. Self-financed and with no political experience makes him beholden to no one. Clinton is owned by her contributors. Support comes with expectations. This pay-to-play system uses political power as a blunt instrument, funding winners and thumping all others.
Trump knows from experience that government is best when it is least. Clinton is a big government liberal. As former President Reagan said, “Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.” Mrs. Clinton clearly represents the problem.
Clinton brings a 3rd term of Obama. Seen by her party as the lady in waiting, Bernie Sanders was sacrificed at her alter. Inside the party trechery kept the Clinton candidacy alive not her quality as a candidate.
The unknowns of Trump are more encouraging than the givens of Clinton. Trump sees this quest as his closing chapter, a genuine calling to make America great again. Clinton has been plotting for this her entire life and that fact makes her motives dubious.
Everything involving Clinton’s public life has been somehow tainted and suspect. The accumulated storm of accusations can’t all be imagined. The slickness of Willie has burnished the hubris of Hillary. In her wake, deception, deceit and doubt have always crept. Can it be that the best candidate for President is a former Presidents wife? The Clinton’s are not a dynasty and Hillary’s resume is paper-thin. We’ve proven that affirmative action does not produce a good President. Gender can’t invent Clinton’s validity.
It all fails the simply sniff test.
Her messy history leaves too many unanswered questions, too many unbelievable, unimaginable, extraordinary blanks spaces. Clinton is too glibly slippery to be President. When her denials end in pleas of ignorance, it demands of us our own stupidity in order to believe.
Trump has completely flummoxed his pundits. Everyone was wrong about everything they said about him. He never had a chance, yet Trump is the last man standing amongst 16 others who were all projected to do better. A survivor under fire.
Think carefully about motives. Clinton has been plotting and planning this her entire life, yet has no significant accomplishments. Trump sees this calling as a duty to his country, managing the rehabilitation of our nation’s greatness. Clinton envisions the presidency as her platform to personal salvation, vain validation at the expense of America.
