It's too late to affect anybody's opinion, so let me rant a moment.
cupric wrote:Hillary is a warmonger, irrationally desperate for money, corrupt, violently angry, a heavy drinker, not merely a liar but tells transparent lies when she'd be better off with the truth, a potential blackmail target, and has made a disaster of every major issue she faced as Secretary of State.
Warmonger: maybe. More of a hawk than her boss, has had to deal with multiple international conflicts (the likes of which I wouldn't trust Trump as far as I could throw him) and has not
acted where she could (perhaps should) have.
Desparate for money: Compared with Trump, that's a laugh.
Corrupt: No proof of that that has survived analysis, whilst Trump has refusec to be
analysed so closely.
Violently angry: ??? (Trump publicly
lashes out, OTOH.)
Heavy drinker: I know nothing of either candidate's drinking habits, no comment.
Liar of transparent lies: "I did not say that" "I did not support that" "She will let in <more people than there are in the entire Americas> in one week". <- all Trump. How do you know if Trump is lying? His lips are moving.
A potential blackmail target: With what? Compared with the high likelihood that Russia has material on Trump, especially.
A disaster of every major issue: Arguable, if you want to go blow-to-blow, but appears to have done very much more good than not, whilst 'superb businessman' Trump has had no political influence (that he admits) and in his chosen field has had failures left right and centre (TrumpMortgage, TrumpFinancial, Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts, Trump Shuttle, GoTrump.com, Trump Vodka, Trump Steaks, Trump Taj, Trump Castle, Trump Plaza, Trump Dubai, Trump University, Trump Toronto, Trump Hollywood, USFL, and many more) has lost so much money that he avoids (if not evades) tax, received (often illegally!) many millions of 'top up' funds from his father to offset his losses, as well as a mere $1mil trust fund and multi-million starter loans and transferals of businesses into his name. If Trump had invested his money in a regular investment account he would be richer now than he is, he would never have defaulted so much, he would not have refused to pay contractors, he probably wouldn't have had to defend against so many lawsuits nor launch so many of his own upon vulnerable targets, would not have had to stall the courts whilst he deliberately
destroyed financial paperwork that had been subpoenaed...
Oh, in how many different aspects is Trump unsuitable? Let me count the ways... Clinton's not perfect, but can you really
consider Trump any more suitable as POTUS as a sack of half-rabid chipmonks in a rapidly rolling barrel?
Sheesh, it's not my country, but it's my planet and whilst normally I'd try to keep my words sweet, lest I have to eat them at some time in the future, please can I not
take part in the double-blind experiment where I end up having to take the Trump presidency. I'm willing to try the Clinton dose, given that's the only other choice, but if I find myself in the Trump universe I'm going to complain about this particular quantum leap down the route of probability...
