I trust Mrs. Hillary Clinton. The issue of trust between Hillary Clinton and the antics of her Republican adversary has risen to a level of false equivalency. National polls constantly show that a majority of potential voters trust Hillary Clinton’s Republican opponent more than they do her. Every time I hear these reports, I shake my head in disbelief. Strangely enough, people cannot give a specific reason as to why they distrust Mrs. Clinton. They just utter numbing phrases such as “I just don’t trust her.” On the other hand, these same people can tell you a whole grocery store shopping list of the untrustworthy things that Clinton’s Republican rival has done. Nevertheless, we hear it over and over again that “He speaks his mind.” The sad part about this is that not too many people, including the media, seem to be truly listening to what he is saying. America seems to be fixated on how he is presenting his lunacy and bigotry. National reporting is obsessed with style points without examining substance. The question becomes how well can you lie and look good doing it as opposed to exposing the lying itself.
Honestly, every time I see a woman, Latino, or African American standing on the stage with Hillary’s opposition, I question their sanity. Given the history of this nation and tone of the Republican campaign, how can any thinking woman, Latino, or African American support the opposition? There are also reports that Hillary is having a difficult time gaining the support of young African Americans. I place the blame for this reality on older African Americans including myself. Perhaps we have not done a sufficient job in educating our youth. Okay. So what. Let us say that we are choosing between the lesser of two evils. One evil definitely leads to chaos and destruction embedded in lies and deception. This same path courts the ideas of white supremacy that held your and my ancestors in chains. There is also no promise to hear your cry of “Black Lives Matter!” On the other hand, the other evil is simply accused of not answering a multiple choice question correctly. And yet, we do not vote perhaps ensuring that our interests are not only not addressed, but totally assaulted. I would choose the lesser of these two evils because I would know that on the morning of November 9, 2016, I would still be free.
Hillary Clinton has been on the national political stage for more than three decades. Some seem to be wary of this factor. I refer to it as qualification to be President of the United States of America. Mrs. Clinton has been investigated to within one centimeter of her life. Essentially no stone has been left unturned. Millions of dollars have been spent on the part of Congress. She has offered volumes of testimony on an extremely wide range of topics and issues. Despite all of these examinations, she has not had to settle one lawsuit with regards to discrimination. She has not paid politicians to look the other way so as not to reveal any corruption. She has not used Clinton Foundation Funds for personal aggrandizement. In the face of such scrutiny Hillary Clinton has only been exonerated time and time again. In the final analysis, there is no “there” there.
When Hillary Clinton was First Lady, she spoke of a vast right wing conspiracy that was targeting her husband and, to some extent, herself. Since that time we have been inundated with negative propaganda aimed at the Clintons. Just recently, her Republican opposition straight out lied about her. He claimed that Hillary started the “Birther” issue. Everyone knows that it was the “Liar in Chief” who started the Birther issue. There are times when I believe that there are those on the left who have been hoodwinked by all the negative Republican propaganda against the Clintons. I say this because often I hear no demarcation between right-wing and left-wing critiques of the Clintons in general and Hillary in particular. In all honesty, I have had my moments of disagreement with Hillary. I disagreed with her regarding the war in Iraq. I believe that is what doomed her candidacy in 2008. However, I do not perceived as detrimental to the earth like her Republican opponent. Republicans are not concerned with the abyss. They pray for Armageddon.
In the final analysis, I wonder how forty-five percent of the American electorate can be so gullible. I welcome the faint bipartisan warnings about the Republican nominee. I believe people who love this country have risen above partisanship knowing that the Republican nominee is a disaster waiting to happen. Ironically, regardless of all the warning signs concerning Hillary opposition, people say they do not trust Hillary Clinton. My question to them is “What do you thing she is going to do?” Contrary to such an opinion, I can unequivocally and unambiguously state that I trust Mrs. Hillary Clinton.
