There are only two viable candidates: Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton. By viable, I mean one of them will win in November. There are other choices, but they will not win no matter how many conscience votes they get. Given the only two viable options, I submit the following:
For months I have been trying to make the case that a Tump presidency will actually get scrutinized. Donald Trump will get resistance from the Democrats and the Republicans. There are numerous Republicans who already oppose him. Trump won’t be able to bring any of the political connections and media worship that Hillary has to the WH, because he doesn’t have any.
These are good developments.
Here’s the bottom line: It’s going to be hard for Donald Trump to get bad legislation passed. It’s going to be easy for Hillary to get bad legislation passed.
The United States Constitution implement a divided government in terms of power and authority. The Constitution is a short document, around 11 pages. Certainly shorter than the Affordable Care Act. It’s short because it created what was supposed to be a limited national government.
If the Constitution didn’t say it, it didn’t have it. The Tenth Amendment makes this very clear:
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
So simple and so ignored. There is no right to killing unborn children and funding Planned Parenthood for any reason. The word education is nowhere to be found. You won’t find anything about marriage.
The Commerce clause has become the King of Clauses and the Clause that Ate the Constitution. Judges use it and the 14th Amendment to create federal powers that do not exist.
The GOP will capitulate with Hillary as President like they’ve done with Obama for the past 8 years. They want a share of the goodies of fame, fortune, prestige, and power while ignoring deficits, debts, and decadence. Hillary will throw them a few crumbs and rub their bellies, and they’ll go away wagging their tails happy with the scraps that fall from her table.
I’ll give the GOP credit for holding fast on Obama’s Supreme Court nomination. Of course, the GOP most likely believed that one of its Establishment guys was going to get the nomination. Nearly the entire Congress voted to overturn Obama’s veto to sue Saudia Arabia. It didn’t take much backbone to vote to override Obama’s veto when the Democrats joined in.
We may actually get a divided government — real checks and balances — at the federal level for the first time in a very long time (if ever) if Trump is elected.
I know I’m not going to convince any NeverTrumpers. That’s been proven by what I post on Facebook and some of the comments I get.
Keep the following in mind if you think our nation will be better off without Donald Trump in the White House if the only other option (and it is the only other option) is Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Crime Family.
The following is from Michael J. Hurd’s article “The Ugly Stench of Hypocrisy.”
“Hillary Clinton has come this far. She has proved that if you have the right political connections, you’re not even accountable to the Department of Justice and the FBI when it’s proven beyond a doubt that you violated the law. You’re a lawbreaker, but you won’t be charged if the president and those who serve him want you to win. Now there’s a scandal for you.”
“So far, Hillary Clinton has gotten away with everything she and her husband did. But she is still brazen enough to sit in judgment for something that isn’t even a crime. Hypocrisy is a painful thing to watch. It’s beyond laughable to watch the biased media culture and all the Hillary-supporting politicians go Puritanical when it comes to sex. The morally righteous never had this problem with Bill Clinton, and they don’t have a problem with Hillary’s mind-numbing evasiveness when it comes to partnering with one of the highest profile sexual predators of all time.
“If you want to make the case for NOT voting for Donald Trump, you have to get real.This tape is the least plausible reason you can find. And if you’re not voting for Donald Trump, be prepared to defend why you did your part to let an actual criminal and lawbreaker – Hillary Clinton – become president.”1
