Clinton a stable choice

Although I was initially impressed with Bernie Sanders, the Democratic National Convention convinced me now, more than ever, the importance in supporting the elected Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton and not Trump.

The Democratic speakers demonstrated persuasive and solid arguments making the experienced Secretary Clinton the wisest choice in being our next president. In contrast, Donald Trump portrayed himself as a pompous, arrogant, egotistical xenophobe at the Republican Convention who would “go it alone.”

On a more local level, Washington State must question whether we will continue to support Cathy McMorris Rodgers in the upcoming election. Her supporters argue that the congresswoman’s high-ranking position in Congress makes her an attractive nominee. However, how can we support a representative who, in turn, supports Donald Trump? Logic would have it, then, that those of us from Seattle to Spokane, would support Trump’s racist, bigoted, chauvinistic bullying attacks against Muslims, Hispanics, women, disabled, etc.

Perhaps Washington State may benefit by McMorris Rodgers rank-and-file position but at what cost? A vote for her is a vote for Trump, thus accepting the billionaire’s divisive and fear-mongering propaganda. Our state and our great country needs the more stable and experienced Clinton.
