Is the 2016 Presidential Campaign Irrevocably Dividing the USA?

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly is very worried about the USA. Recently, on his show the O’Reilly Factor, the host spent a few minutes explaining why he was worried about what would happen in America once this election was over.

To take the heat off their candidate, the Trump campaign is now focusing on Hillary Clinton’s continuing email and Foundation controversies.

The plan is this – to demonize Mrs. Clinton with the corruption label; to demand an independent prosecutor be assigned to look at her behavior; and to tell voters that ongoing scandal will not benefit the country.

Trending: Former Australian Politician Gives Life to Christ at 85 After Lifetime of Atheism

Yesterday Mr. Trump made things clear:

Yesterday at a rally in Akron, OH

Donald Trump: “The Clintons made the State Department into the same kind of pay-for-play operations as the Arkansas Government was. The amounts involved, the favors done and the significant number of times it was done require an expedited investigation by a special prosecutor immediately.”

So for the next few weeks we will be hearing that Attorney General Loretta Lynch should appoint a prosecutor to investigate the Clinton Foundation and perhaps the new email dump which we will tell you about in a few moments.

For her part, Secretary Clinton is keeping cool.

She appeared with Jimmy Kimmel last night.

Hillary Clinton: “Jimmy, my emails are so boring. And I’m embarrassed about that. They’re so boring. So we’ve already released, I don’t know, 30,000 plus so what’s a few more.”

That is a smart strategy by Secretary Clinton not to run from the controversies but to underplay them.

Mrs. Clinton well understands that her base doesn’t care very much about the email or Foundation situations and her campaign is hoping that independent voters are tired of it as well.

All in all, this presidential campaign is nasty and will get worse.

Talking Points predicted that because there is so much at stake. The difference between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is enormous and partisans on both sides are mobilized to the highest degree.

Obviously we are all living in a time where America is a divided country.

Republicans have nominated a populist, a magnet for controversy who promises great change.

Democrats have nominated a traditional politician, also a controversy magnet, whose policies are not much different than those of Barack Obama.

For me as a voter, I don’t like all the strife. I don’t like the polarization. But it’s reality and we have to deal with it.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
