Reasoning, For or Against

There is much in the news about the Republican candidate for President, and there has been much in the news about the Democrat’s candidate for President.  There have even been occasional snippets in the news for or against the Libertarian’s candidate.  Let me see if I can summarize the pros and cons to come up with a best choice.

Other Factors
Hillary “I know nothing about technology” Clinton (Democrat)
1.    Been in politics a long time
2.   Knows a lot of liberal benefactors
3.   Knows how to lie to the American public
4.   Rich and knows how to link contributions to political favors
5.   Knows how to use aides to do heavy lifting (i.e. take out enemies)
6.   Puts the needs of the Party just slightly behind her personal needs
7.   Is comfortable living in the isolation of the beltway and avoiding contact with working Americans except for photo ops.
·     Major Accomplishment is “been in politics a long time”
·     Health is uncertain (see strength #3)
·     Positions on major issues tend to change (see strength #4)
·     Does not believe in accepting personal ownership of mistakes (see strength #5)
·     Has a VP partner who is an a$$wipe, and who promises to be her right hand person
Wants to reshape America to eliminate an independent middle class

Will, in all likelihood, continue the Obama definition of “Transparency” and “open government”

Will, in all likelihood, extend the use of DOJ, DOHS, DHHS, and Treasury as political tools to maintain control of opponents

With her history of destroying records her requirements for a post-presidential library should be pretty small and may be able to add a room to the Clinton Library in Arkansas
Donald “I have a big mouth” Trump (Republican)
1.   Has been a major donor to political campaigns
2.  Will say anything, often without benefit of judgement
3.  Is not a career politician, although he says he has paid for some?
4.  Claims to comb his own hair
5.  Is rich
6.  Has alienated a great number of Republicans
7.  Appeals to a great number of dissatisfied middle class voters
8.  Promises to turn down the PC rhetoric
9.  Has a VP partner who appears sane
·     Has the thinnest skin of any presidential candidate since Aaron Burr
·     Absolutely no concept of decorum or civil decency
·     Can’t spell PC
·     With history of Chapter 11 bankruptcy he could declare America bankrupt and file for Chapter 11 protections (which would upset the Chinese and the Saudi governments)
If elected a number of Hollywood properties would go on the real estate market as liberal stars flee to Canada

Entire term -- the nation and the world would be wondering what next?
Gary “Isn’t Aleppo a dog food?” Johnson
1.   From New Mexico
2.  Supports legalization of Cannabis
3.  Isn’t Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump
4.  Not Married (girlfriend would have to fill in as first lady)
·     Can’t name another world leader
·     Doesn’t know where Aleppo is
·     Not sure how many states are in the US.
If on Star Trek he would be wearing a red shirt

What would WH kitchen stock for those late night munchies?

Yikes, what you had to ponder to write this ( unfortunately all too accurate) chart. After I read a bit about the sorry spectacle and desultory and crude conversation going on in our nation, I find I have to wash my mind and heart, on the order of Paul's blogpost to the Philippians 4:8 (NIV):

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things."

I hope you are battened down and well. Thank you for the hope you have expressed for our country with your service and voiced concerns.
