Presidential Election

We Have No Choice!

(full editorial, October 15, 2016)

 In the presidential election of 2016, we are stuck with a choice between a 220 pound bag of lying BS who is terribly corrupt and is likely to be immediately impeached in 2017 and should probably be imprisoned, a 267 pound of hate-mongering BS who is out of control as he spouts off with crass, divisive comments who would represent our country as disgusting and vile (I really hope even the average American is better than that), a third party candidate whose candidacy was demolished in an Allepo moment and has no chance, and a lesser known candidate whose name is not on the ballot in all 50 states and also has no chance of being elected. I donít even want to vote under these circumstances, but it is my duty as a citizen.

We are stuck! We have no choice! I hate to say it but at this point I have no choice other than to vote for....

the 220 pound bag of corrupt, lying BS.

Note: There is no known disclosure of Hillary Clintonís weight, not that it matters much. Other sources have estimated Hillary has had a massive weight gain of perhaps 100 pounds or more. I do not besmirch her over her weight gain. There are so many other valid reasons to besmirch her. What a terrible choice!

I am very disappointed with the DNC and corporate media rigging of the primary election which, from even before candidate announcements, had annointed Clinton and ruined a spectacular candidacy by Bernie Sanders. I am particularly dismayed by the unscrupulous annointing by former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz and others which removed all opposition to the Clinton nomination and did their best, along with the corporate media, to keep all other Democratic presidential candidates out of the public eye. Bernie was not the only candidate derailed by Debbie Wasserman Shultz and the DNC, what with their pre-arranged super candidates. There are not many people who heard the important message by Larry Lessig about the desperate need to rescue our democracy through extremely needed campaign reform.  

I am also very disappointed with the Republicans, but not just for their nomination of an extremely flawed candidate who cowtows to their evangelicals who invent issues to strenthen their religious views (in spite of the crucial importance of separation of church and state) and elevate their religious values as having primary importance, derailed every effort for President Obama to succeed via agreement of Republican senators led by McConnell, and treasonously kept the budget and the government hostage, costing the taxpayers 27 BILLION DOLLARS, unless it was approved with sections repeatedly and stubbornly inserted to force a repeal of the Affordable Health Care Act established law and the weakening of laws consistent with the longstanding Supreme Court judgment in Roe v. Wade.

I am dismayed with the corporate media. They have not done their jobs of reporting with details about the real issues, and their interview questions to the candidates usually focus only on those questions which could shock and awe their readers about candidate personalities and momentarily propel the interviewer and networks or newspaper into the spotlight. The corporate media is just as responsible for political corruption as Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC for annointing Clinton, if not moreso.

In closing it is with a heavy heart and sincere regret, knowing I have done all I can to avoid it, yet We Have No Choice, and I have no choice other than to vote for, and predict our next President will be

the 220 pound bag of corrupt, lying BS.

Regretably,
