So what are those of us who want to put our emotions aside and make the best choice to do?
I intend to put all the rancor and name-calling aside and decide for myself where each candidate would take the country.
Mrs. Clinton has gone far to the left in response to the surprising success of Bernie Sanders, a socialist. No question, she will take us in the direction of more government involvement in our lives and appoint liberal Supreme Court justices not friendly to the small business backbone of our economy.
Mr. Trump is in many ways a “Trump” card. We don’t know exactly what he will do. From what I can see, I would call him a pragmatic conservative. His position in favor of “fair and better” trade deals is unique among Republican candidates of the immediate past. His intuition is correct. While I believe in free trade, I also know that America’s working class is being “outsourced” out of the American dream. If Republicans don’t recognize that now, Clinton will win and accomplish many of the socialist goals of her newly far-left leaning party.
I’m voting for Mr. Trump
I’m voting for Mr. Trump solely because he will appoint Supreme Court justices who will keep America going in what I believe is the right direction and make sure all Americans still have the opportunity to succeed.
