I don’t think that electing a racist, mysoginistic, homophobe to office will elicit any positive changes for America.

I don’t think that electing a criminal, sexist, gun-grabby, irresponsible, washed-up old hag is the answer. So maybe he’s the lesser of two evils.

Trump speaks out against ONE of these things and provokes the rest. How will that make it better?

Um no. Someone with a bit of political experience is better than someone who tosses out key phrases simply to rile a crowd. Trump in Office will only make us worse in the world’s eye, even more disrespected. You expect him to be diplomatic? No, we would be more of a target.

Yes, we do need a radical change…yes, Trump is a radical person… But I am not convinced that he is the right kinda of radical.

I also don’t have an answer as to WHO should be that person.

Yeah, HATE (Trump) is gonna stop HATE. Hopefully you can see I am being extremely sarcastic.

Trust me, if Trump gets elected, the violence at this rallies won’t compare to what will occur.

Sunshine09:  I think that Trump is exactly what we DON’T need right now.  There are challenges in the country (as there always are).  We need, first and formost, less partisan thinking in order to make progress.  We need to elect people who are experienced and effective.  We need our politicians to focus on the unsexy, underlying issues rather than the surface hysteria.

Trump will achieve none of these things.

This is just what my husband was saying he was afraid of.  No, an ignorant bully who is subtly accusing our current president of being in cahoots with Isis is NOT what we need now, or ever.  He has no actual policy suggestions or experience.  He’s just a dope with a big mouth and a bigger ego.

Actually, my disgust with Hillary may send me Trump’s direction.  In 1975, she defended a pedophile rapist and spun a story that a 12 year old had Daddy issues and wanted her rapist to have sex with her.

At 12, that’s statutory rape.  

Hillary’s client got off with a year and two months including time served.  And, Hillary knew he was guilty.

I honestly thought it was a mean meme that had been made up.  The damned thing is true. 

I survived rape at 21 and I can’t imagine what it did to a 12 year old.  

I can’t in good concience vote for someone who helped a pedophile get away with such a short sentence by blaming the victim’s (false) desires.

But, I hate the thought of Trump.  I have to decide which of the two are worse.

Sunshine09:  how anyone could even CONSIDER voting for some one who regularly advocates committing war crimes as a solution to our problems is beyond me.

No.  Just no.  I have never supported him, and I agree with the PP that his many flaws have always made him a bad choice.  

BUT, given that yesterday he actually implied that Obama may be a secret agent for ISIS (http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2016/06/13/trump_obama_might_be_isis_sympathizer.html) and/or involved in the shootings in Orlando (http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/06/trumps-implication-obama-was-involved-in-the-orlando-shooting/486770/), I now have no choice but to believe that anyone who continues to support him is either batshit crazy or just plain stupid.
