The lesser of two sin­ners

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum - Ch­ester Se­aborn, Me­chan­icsville

The pres­i­den­tial de­bates are his­tory. Now one won­ders what per­cent­age of Amer­i­cans are yet to make up their minds as to which of the twain is best suited to serve this na­tion as pres­i­dent. Be­tween par­ties, there’s about as much con­trast on is­sues as there is in com­par­ing day and night.

Our next pres­i­dent im­me­di­ately faces nu­mer­ous mat­ters of ut­most im­por­tance es­sen­tially equal in pri­or­ity. How­ever, noth­ing trumps na­tional se­cu­rity and the crush­ing of ISIS here and abroad. Yet, all needs are man­age­able and one truly qual­i­fied to serve can suc­cess­fully mul­ti­task.

One can­di­date wants a mil­i­tar­ily stronger na­tion with a smaller, more ef­fi­cient gov­ern­ment, yet one fully ca­pa­ble of re­spond­ing to the myr­iad needs of the peo­ple in the most cost ef­fec­tive and timely man­ner. All the while bring­ing jobs back home. The other es­pouses dif­fer­ing pri­or­i­ties.

Of late, me­dia has been res­o­lutely af­fixed on the un­seemly and base ver­biage ut­tered by can­di­date Don­ald Trump, in con­cert with now as­so­ci­ated decades old ac­cu­sa­tions. Mean­while, they pooh- pooh away and oth­er­wise ob­scure can­di­date Hil­lary Clin­ton’s mis­han­dling of clas­si­fied ma­te­rial and re­port­edly dis­pos­ing of thou­sands of emails, some pos­si­bly un­se­cured. Then, there’s the Beng­hazi fail­ure — and the will­ful de­struc­tion of cell phones, gov­ern­ment prop­erty, to limit fur­ther in­for­ma­tion flow. Now, there are fresh Wik­iLeaks dis­clo­sures hit­ting the streets, most of which will be art­fully dis­closed or oth­er­wise clev­erly qual­i­fied.

There­fore, al­beit di­verse in prac­tice and mea­sure, bot­tom line is, two brazen sin­ners — a con­ser­va­tive and a lib­eral — are vy­ing for your vote. We can ef­fect change with sin­ner Trump, and likely net a re­ally huge one, or we can main­tain sta­tus quo with sin­ner Hil­lary, as America un­der­goes fur­ther “fun­da­men­tal trans­for­ma­tion” un­der duress.

With a sin­ner Hil­lary pres­i­dency, col­lec­tively, we ex­claim, man, we’ve evolved, do more of the same. And we’ll get it with more from the anti- God, anti- Christ, Con­sti­tu­tion ig­nor­ing, racially di­vi­sive, econ­omy plun­der­ing, en­ergy in­de­pen­dence deny­ing, in­ner city ne­glect­ing, law en­force­ment de­cry­ing, Is­rael snub­bing, ally be­wil­der­ing, en­emy an­i­mat­ing, open bor­ders- sanc­tu­ary city sup­port­ing, na­tional debt com­pound­ing, mil­len­nial de­ceiv­ing, mil­i­tary di­min­ish­ing, gen­der per­plex­ing, Mother Earth wor­ship­ping lib­eral Demo­crat party politi­cos. And if you like your doc­tor you can keep your doc­tor, as health­care costs go down.

For this sin­ner, the choice is sim­ple. No fur­ther “fun­da­men­tal trans­for­ma­tion” of this coun­try. Rather, let’s seek to undo wher­ever pos­si­ble, ter­mi­nate shock to this na­tion, cor­rect mis­takes and work to­gether to make America great again. Thus, I’ll gladly cast my lot with sin­ner Trump as the can­di­date far and away best qual­i­fied to serve this one na­tion, un­der God.
