As the candidates fought during the debate, it became apparent that Hillary was not the right choice for America. While Trump isn’t perfect, it is clear he’s nowhere near corrupt as Hillary. Who is the most experienced choice? Obviously, it’s Hillary. Trump does not have 30 years’ experience of corruption in public office. Trump does not have experience mishandling classified material or ignoring our military’s cries for help in Benghazi. Unlike Hillary, Trump is inexperienced in having several people who are an inconvenience to him, mysteriously die. Trump doesn’t have experience running charities and then embezzling from them. Nor does he have experience doing business deals with Russia and selling them U.S. uranium reserves.
Speaking of Russia, in last night’s debate Hillary said that Russia is trying to influence the election. She claims the emails sourced by Wiki Leaks, and other classified information have been deliberately leaked by Russia to help Trump get elected. However, her claims are completely unproven.
Indeed even if she is right about Russia interfering with the US election, that does not change the fact is that Hillary and the Democratic Party are still the primary sources for these documents. She and they said and did all those things that the released documents show, for example, arranging the primaries so that Bernie Sanders would lose. It does not matter where the documents came from – they show the truth about Hillary Clinton.
Trump has stated multiple times that Russia does not respect America or Obama. In the debate, he said twice that he doesn’t know all the internal workings of Russia, and has no business dealings with them – which Hillary asserted he has. However, Trump says that he would do what he could to work with Russia to destroy Isis. That is, he focused on the main issue.
Regarding Isis, Trump was scathing of recent announcements by the Obama administration that the US will attack Isis in Mosul in three to four weeks. He is entirely right of course – you plan sneak attacks, instead of stupidly publicly announcing an attack.
The point above, however, was the one point in the debate where he went on longer than he should have. Generally, through the debate he kept very composed, speaking, attacking at the right time, and then letting go without getting carried away.
He made a point of acknowledging that the problem we face is radical Islamic terror. He said that you cannot solve a problem if you can’t define it. Of course, Hillary and Obama do not name “radical Islamic terrorism” and he hit on that. Trump tied this point into an answer about immigration control – “extreme vetting.”
Donald mentioned that what America needs to stay safe is a vetting process for Immigrants from Muslim and other hot spot countries. We need to know who is coming into our country, why they are coming here, and where their loyalties lie. He says that there is no effective way to screen all of the people trying to come into this country at the moment. Hillary, on the other hand, said that America needs to let in more refugees – and the moderators quizzed her on this.
Then there was the issue of taxes. Hillary claimed that we need to tax the rich to help the poor and middle class. However, she failed to confirm what she has said in earlier speeches about raising taxes on the middle class. Instead, she stated that Trump would raise taxes on the middle class – which was a bizarre thing to say as he has never mentioned this.
Trump said that he intends to lower taxes for all Americans. He wants to take corporate taxes down to only 15%. Corporate tax cuts will help entrepreneurs have the money to expand their businesses and create jobs. He also claimed that he would remove the carried interest tax loophole, repeatedly saying that Clinton hasn’t voted for removing this in the past, as it helps her donors.
Responding to a question on energy, Trump mentioned how huge energy reserves were discovered in America recently (natural gas from fracking of course). He then suggested that we should be using America’s natural resources (like clean coal) to bring energy companies back. In addition to using wind and solar, clean coal and natural gas would allow America to become truly energy independent. Donald claims these sources could provide energy for America for 1,000 years. He said he intends to protect energy companies from the EPA and bring back American jobs.
Finally, the topic turned to what Justices each candidate would nominate, and the 2nd amendment. Hillary said she would appoint judges who will support Roe v Wade. She also said that while she supports the 2nd amendment, she wants to close the gun show loophole. Meanwhile, Trump stated that his justices would respect the 2nd amendment and Constitution. He said that wants to install people in the court similar to Justice Scalia.
Arguably, America is in a far worse condition now than it was eight years ago. The economy is growing at a very slow pace, race relations are the worst they have been for a long time, and terrorism is certainly on the rise. Our leaders are allowing radical Islamic elements into our country with no screening process. Americans can’t decide what bathroom they should use, or even what gender they are. We are even having a scary clown epidemic sweeping the nation.
When all is said and done, Trump promises to fight for Making America Great Again, and Hillary vows to continue the path of Obama. However, if you want to know if Trump is better for America than Hillary consider this:
Do you want four more years of failure against Isis, and dithering while thousands die in Syria, and deals which allow Iran to prosper? Do you want taxes raised on the middle class and job creators? Do you want open borders? Is this what you want to happen?
Or, do you want a chance to make America great again, and fight back against the passive politically correct machine causing America’s decline? The choice is yours.Photo credit: LA Times
