Aspire to something better

Much has been said about the erratic candidacy of Trump. I fault the Republican Party for its failure to stand up to the tea party faction and their extreme right-wing views. Otherwise the Republicans could have found a solid moderate candidate.

There is only one person with the resume and experience to lead this country, Hillary Clinton. You can hate her, but she is highly qualified. She is called a liar, but Trump lies virtually every time he opens his mouth. What is most concerning is that people who support this pompous loon totally ignore facts and truth. Clinton has never said she would eliminate Second Amendment, as an example.

They should be ashamed. The USA isn’t as bad as he blathers about. Look at the facts. Have people suffered from the economy, etc.? Yes and may continue to no matter who leads the country. Trump bans reporters from the Washington Post. He doesn’t like what they write about him. What would he do as president with criticism?

Voters, please aspire to something better for everyone. Trump is dangerous and unequipped to lead. Using one of his infamous lines, Donald, do everyone a favor and “go home to mommy.”
