Your choices

Ev­ery pres­i­den­tial elec­tion seems to be more im­por­tant than the last, but this one has reached crit­i­cal mass. The di­rec­tion of Amer­ica and its gov­ern­ment now hangs in the bal­ance. We ei­ther preser ve the best of what’s left of our coun­try or we sur­ren­der our rights and free­dom to an un­re­stricted, cor­rupt gov­ern­ment. So let’s con­tem­plate our choices.

Trav­el­gate, White­wa­ter, Fi­le­gate, Chi­na­gate, cat­tle fu­tures, Par­don gate, Clin­ton Foun­da­tion money laun­der­ing, Ura­nium gate; to­gether the Clin­tons have more gates than a foot­ball sta­dium. Hon­or­able men­tions: serial rape, im­peach­ment, dis­bar­ment, Haiti, Vince Fos­ter, email na­tional se­cu­rity vi­o­la­tions, Ron Brown, dis­grac­ing the of­fice of pres­i­dency and Oval Of­fice, White House loot­ing, in­com­pe­tence, unin­dicted crim­i­nal- ity, the mys­te­ri­ous dis­ap­pear­ance of $6 bil­lion, just men­tion­ing a few. Any­one in­ter­ested in see­ing how far the Clin­ton rab­bit hole re­ally goes have only to search “Mena, Arkansas” or “ist of Clin­ton scan­dals” on Google or YouTube.

The Clin­tons are not only cor­rupt, but they are cor­rupt-ing, i.e. the DOJ, the IRS, the State Depart­ment, the FBI, in­clud­ing the me­dia. What we’ve seen thus far is just a pre­view of com­ing at­trac­tions, and the thing is, if elected, we will prob­a­bly be spared know­ing about oth­ers since the Clin­tons will con­trol these agen­cies to avoid over­sight, ac­count­abil­ity and pros­e­cu­tion.

Make no mis­take, the Clin­tons are a pack­age. This is not so much a mar­riage as it is an un­holy al­liance; truly, they are the Bon­nie and Clyde of pol­i­tics. Only the naive, the gullible and those chug­ging the Kool-Aid de­lude them­selves into be­liev­ing that the pa­rade of lies, scan­dals and cor­rup­tion will come to a scream­ing halt once they’re elected.

Am I thrilled with Trump? Not so much. I’ve had to change bumper stick­ers four times be­fore the field whit­tled down to Don­ald TrumpSup­port­ers don’t con­fuse him with saint­hood, but un­til Je­sus Christ de­cides to run for of­fice, Trump is our best op­tion given the al­ter­na­tive to a Clin­ton ma­chine con­tin­u­ally driven by cor­rup­tion, lies and scan­dal.

A foot­note on Beng­hazi’s most in­struc­tive les­son: con­sider a per­son who know­ingly lies over four dead bod­ies be­ing brought into a hangar, lies to the ser­vice­men car­ry­ing their cas­kets, de­lib­er­ately lies to the griev­ing fam­i­lies, and then brazenly lies to a na­tional au­di­ence wit­ness­ing this spec­ta­cle. Any rea­son­able per­son might rightly con­clude that if a per­son is able to do that, they are ca­pa­ble of do­ing any­thing.

So now we’re down to our choices. We al­ready know what Hil­lar y is, but when we vote, we get to an­swer the ques­tion: “At this point, what dif­fer­ence does it make?” Mike Turner, La Plata
