Cllinton will be a unifying leader

What a difference, between our two political conventions.

At the GOP convention in Cleveland, fear, hatred, intemperance and unfounded accusations abounded. Donald Trump charged that we were a country in decline and under siege.

The facts are that Americans are less likely to become victims of terrorism than those in other countries; violent crime has dropped steadily in the U.S. since 1992, and in May unemployment dipped to its lowest rate since November 2007.

In contrast, Democrats at their convention maintained that we “are” the greatest country, not “were.” Our military is the strongest and the U.S. is out-performing most of the world’s advanced economies. And a unified party was coming out of the convention.

After years and millions spent, a GOP-led, politically-motivated committee found nothing new that would blame Hillary Clinton for a security lapse at Benghazi. In contrast, under Ronald Reagan, the 1983 Beirut bombing of a U.S. Marine compound that killed 241 U.S. service personnel resulted in a non-accusatory bi-partisan investigation.

Our only chance to have a unifying leader, who has the experience and temperament to lead our nation, is to elect Hillary Clinton president in November.
