Election

Trump, Clinton, and the election that could decide the fate of the United States

As the second debate commenced I found myself unable to watch more than 20 minutes of it. I like many Americans have come to a crossroads with this election. The first part of the debate appeared as if I was watching a segment from SNL (Saturday Night Live). Questions were extremely personal and answers were even more personal, most attacks towards each other. I found this extremely disturbing because this could quite possibly be one of the most important elections in recent American history.

With the threat of ISIS looming throughout the world and the continuing strain on the Middle East between Syria, Russia, and the US. The country, nearly 20 trillion dollars in debt and The Affordable Care act in the process of failing before our eyes. The potential of up to 3 supreme court justice seats coming open for the next President to fill, potentially shifting the court for decades to come. I think we can all agree that the country and the world could be in a much better place than it is today and the next President could have a major impact on how things could change in the near future.

This election has been everything but ordinary, first a businessman who has no political experience before becoming the nominee for president. His opponent the first ever women nominee of a major political party and a former First Lady. Up to this point it has been a knock down drag out fight between the two, exchanging blows like prize fighters. Controversy as each turn, Hillary’s email scandals along with former president Bill Clinton’s actions  while president have surfaced. Recent recordings of Donald Trump have been released with rather lewd comments about women on them continues to enhance the controversy surrounding this election.

Both candidates have made personal attacks towards each other going as far as to say each other are unfit to hold the highest office in the land. Both of the first two debates haven’t had many questions related to issues but more on the topic of personal problems. Moderators have been talking over both candidates while both candidates attempt to talk over one another. I am one of those Americans who is concerned with the state of our nation and for one would like to hear where both candidates stand on major issues. This negative rhetoric coming from both candidates have been nothing but distracting to what the real issues are.

I plead to the people to not lose focus on what the real issues are with this election. The issues are not Bill Clinton’s past affairs for which Hillary defended and he was impeached. They are not words Donald Trump used 11 years ago in a private conversation. The major issues that surround this country are not the personal affairs of our two presidential candidates. I don’t believe we elect Presidents based on Moral reasons though it can be a factor I don’t see it as a major one.

Throughout history we have had Presidents on both ends of the spectrum. We have had presidents that I would consider morally impure but who were successful as president. We have also had Presidents who I would consider Morally sound but have been unsuccessful as president. Though I believe fighting for moral rights is what a president should do that doesn’t mean they will be morally sound themselves. We should elect presidents for policies and their path for  America. Again I state keep focused on the Real issues that face this great nation not the negative personal rhetoric coming from BOTH campaigns.

    Alex,
    Not sure how old you are, but you look very young. I Say this not to offend you, but there is a far bigger battle going on here, and the personal attacks are a big part of it. Hillary Clinton is a criminal, and so is 95% of the other people in office, repubs included. This is not a Partisan battle, but the very future of a nation, and the people in it. This is about we the people taking our independence back from the globalist elitist corporations that own you, whether you like it or not. This election is the earthly manifestation of a War in heaven that is going on right now.

    I want you to think about this, and read some passages from the Bible. Daniel 12, The 2nd epistle of Peter, The epistle of Jude, Revelation 12. (should take no more than 15 minutes or so) Unlike what Most churches teach, the Woman in Revelation 12 is the church, and I can prove this. Many still believe her to be Israel, and their focus is there. Things are only going to get worse, Before it gets better. The wrath of God is coming to America for her sins, and the church is so wrapped up in the mammon that they have lost sight of the coming King of kings.

    God bless.

    “This is about we the people taking our independence back from the globalist elitist corporations that own you>” Exactly, which is why we cannot even consider electing a billionaire with no respect for blacks, hispanics, regions other than Christianity, gays, or frankly people in general. We can not elect a man whose corporations stand to gain fro his presidency and who puts self first.

      Larry,
      you are believing the lies propagated by the media about Donald Trump. until You wake up to the fact that you are a victim of Propaganda from the left, you will continue to be a mindless robot repeating their lies.

      Speaking of the war in the heavens, Did you catch Podesta’s leaked email about Aliens? Aliens are what the Bible calls fallen angels, (See genesis 6, 2 Peter 2, and Jude) This is why the Catholic church is so enthused about them.

    Yes, the future of the United States under Hillary Clinton will be VERY different from the future of the U.S. under Donald Trump. But regardless of whom is elected President, I hope everyone will keep calm and move on. The country has survived worse.

    Chuck, I Hope you “move on” as well as your snowflake buddies who cannot accept the results of the election and are burning down their cities in a temper tantrum. Ooops!
    There is a really nice bridge in Detroit called the ambassador bridge, that is beckoning you as well. Perhaps that is the “move on” you are referring to?
