“Helplessness in Election 2016” should have never crossed our mind. The laden of our deficit and the result of our Democracy in Congress has finally failed us. At this very moment, many of us don’t want to turn on the news and repeatedly listen to the ongoing bashing between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton all about their personal lives.
It’s not only we the people of the United States that has this gnawing foreboding feeling within our gut. But the Prime Minister of England, David Cameron has called Donald Trump “divisive, stupid, and wrong.”
Donald Trump’s divisive and polarizing skills are not what this country needs. His rhetoric of dissension and discord would only set this country further back. An isolation mentality isn’t benefiting our best interests and goes against our democracy as a whole. He’s picking on multiple ethnicity’s on all fronts from the Mexican Americans to the Muslims and everyone else in between (women). He has sung to the tune of prejudice and irreverence for a good majority of the demographic population in the United States.
Now he refuses to disclose his income taxes. The bullying has taken it’s toll on the entire country and it seems he is far from presidential to lead this country. With there being real threats of nuclear disaster against world peace from North Korea, we must put someone in office who has the sensibilities, knowledge, and temperament to lead this country effectively and professionally.
Where does all this lead us to? Is there still hope? Hillary Clinton comes with a shady past from a radical perspective voting to invade Iraq, to the Benghazi Islamic attacks, to her own personal (secretive) computer server still under investigation, and raising all her campaign money from Wall Street, big rich companies, superPACs and celebrities who are richer than her.
There is Bernie Sanders, who we haven’t heard much from in the last week. Mr. Sanders’ vision for this country was to systematically and effectively balance our country’s socio-economic status reducing our deficit while offering free insurance and a college education. Stopping the rich from getting richer and the poor poorer and the middle class sustaining.
At this point, many of us aren’t saying much. The accumulation of poor representation and bad judgement from President Bush to all the fat cats in Wall Street swinging on a pendulum of greed and risks including a scheme of Consolidated Debt Obligations collectively breaking our economy in September, 2008, and we must not forget Congress’s continual opposition against NRA reform, implementing laws, rules, and regulations to stop the large companies from building their headquarter offices to avoid paying taxes and creating jobs in other countries to minimize their manufacturing costs. What do we do? How can we change this?
