NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF HUMAN STUPIDITY!
continually amazed by the Presidential campaign.
Dangerous and deplorable Donald
Trump has done everything that would disqualify a normal and legitimate
candidate for office or would derail a normal and legitimate campaign.And he has done nothing that one would expect
a normal and legitimate candidate to do.
Every day he continues to spew
outrageous lies and nonsense, which is repeatedly proven to be lies and
nonsense via legitimate fact-checking.
the Energizer bunny, he just keeps going on, and the race continues to appear
to be close.
this arrogant, pompous, self-absorbed buffoon have to do before he is totally
rejected by the Party and the people?
respected Republican leaders have publicly denounced and opposed Trump, the
intelligent and rational response to his lies and nonsense, the Party itself
continues to, while I expect reluctantly, support his candidacy.
nothing in his business or personal life, or in what he has said or done as a
candidate, that would suggest he is the least bit “Presidential”.It is the opposite that is true.Everything he has said and done, before and
during the campaign, proves that he is totally unfit to be President.
I am not a
genius, and I am not a doctor.But it is
as obvious as the nose on your face to me that Donald Trump is mentally
unstable, everything he says and does fueled by easily diagnosable acute
Narcissistic Personality Disorder.And
this is nothing new.I have been
pointing out his obvious excessive narcissism for over a decade.
Heinlein, the "dean of science fiction writers", has warned us to “Never
underestimate the power of human stupidity”.This Presidential campaign has
certainly demonstrated the power of human stupidity.
inconceivable to believe that any rational and intelligent person would vote
for Trump.The only explanation for the
fact that he continues to poll at 40+ is the sad and disturbing fact that a
large percentage of the “great unwashed masses” are just plain stupid.
Americans who cannot support Hillary Clinton, for political and personal
reasons, and cannot in good conscience vote for her.They have a right to believe that way.However there is no excuse for any real
Republican or conservative or any other person who opposes Clinton to vote for
Trump when there is an intelligent and rational alternative in the candidacy of
Johnson and Weld of the Libertarian Party, two former popular and respected
Republican governors, or Jill Stein of the Green Party, a credible more liberal
oppose Hillary, a Clinton Presidency would certainly not be the disaster, for
America and the world, a Trump Presidency would be.For these voters it really does come down to
the lesser of two evils.And if a
Clinton Presidency is the inevitable outcome of this election the Republican
Party is totally to blame for nominating such a heinous candidate.
hope for the future of America and the world is that when it really counts,
when Americans are actually in the voting booth, there will be enough
intelligent and rational citizens who realize that they cannot in good
conscience vote for this dangerous, deplorable, and unstable reality tv clown.
