A Room With a Southern View

Thoughts on Life and Liberty from an Average Middle-Class Kentuckian

The Home Stretch

OpEd:

Well, there are only thirty-five days until Election Day. God help us!

Either way it goes, I’m afraid there will be violent reactions. I’ve been following Presidential races since Nixon vs McGovern in 1972, and this is the most divisive race I can ever remember.

Remember when we thought having a black President would ease race relations? How naive people were when they cast their votes for an unknown Senator from Illinois, just to prove they weren’t racists. It never occurred to anyone that he might just make things worse by undermining police authority with generalizations about police brutality against blacks and making accusations against police before having all the facts.

And don’t even get me started on Hillary. This is a woman with no moral compass. She has shown time and again that she believes herself to be above the law. And she has the high-powered connections to enable that belief. It’s obvious to me that she desires power and influence above all else. And as a woman of the 1960’s, she needed a man to fulfill that dream. How else could she remain married to Bill all these years?!

I have followed Donald Trump’s career and admired his business acumen for 40 years. Yes, he’s brash. Yes, he can be an obnoxious loudmouth. Yes, he tells it like it is. Yes, he’s had a bunch of wives and girlfriends, but to nowhere near the extent of Bill Clinton. Trump hasn’t been accused of violence against women the way Clinton has, and Hillary says Trump hates women?

One issue that I have always felt is important in a Presidential candidate is transparency. Secrets are a big red flag for me. The Clintons are neck-deep in secrets and conspiracies and shady deals. Donald Trump’s life is nearly an open book, for better or worse.

In most of the Presidential races I can remember the candidates were mostly the same, no matter which party they represented. Cookie cutter politicians. This year, I think the candidates are like night and day. Hillary is the quintessential politician. Slick and shady with her little troupe of handlers monitoring her every move. Then there’s The Donald. Oh, Donald! His loud retorts to his hecklers, his sarcastic humor, his brashness, his no-filter comments all prove that he is the textbook anti-politician.

I believe that Americans are tired of politics as usual. They want the truth. They want transparency. They want a government that listens to them.

Let’s hope, whoever wins this election, that Americans can come together as a People and work together to strengthen our nation. One nation under God indivisible with Liberty and Justice for all.
