I’ve seen a lot of presidential elections in my time. I’ve seen too many times when we had to pick who we thought was the better of two undesirable characters/candidates, and the election coming up is one of those elections. My guess is that people who would be good candidates and good presidents are just too sensible to run or have chosen to avoid politics all together.
The two candidates we have before us have spent months making promises that will never materialize. They have two other branches of government to deal with, the judicial branch and a somewhat broken congressional branch.
When Clinton and Trump aren’t making futile promises, they are spending time attacking each other’s characters, and Clinton even demeans us. People will think I’m wasting my vote, but since seeing Senator Elizabeth Warren chewing out the CEO of the Wells Fargo Banking institution for literally defrauding their customers, I am going to vote for her.
I want to be able to say God bless America. Instead I’m inclined to say God help America.
