I am 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.
Yet, like the Energizer bunny, he just keeps going on, and the race continues to appear to be close.
What does this arrogant, pompous, self-absorbed buffoon have to do before he is totally rejected by the Party and the people?
While many 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.
There is 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.
Robert 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.
It is 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.
There are 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 candidate.
While many 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.
My only 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.
