WHY IS ANYONE SURPRISED THAT HILLARY CLINTON IS GONNA WIN THIS RACE EASILY? AND IT WASN'T JUST THE FEAR FACTOR, IT WAS THE CANDIDATE!
Seems reality has defeated a media driven candidate with nothing to pitch but the show… and we the people wanted reality, experience, know how and… her!
NOW THAT THE VOTERS ARE BEGINNING TO SPEAK and our future is being written right in front of our eyes, why did this crazy campaign seem as difficult during it, when looking back its probably gonna be seen as a huge victory for her and for our democracy. I knew this election wasn't gonna be easy. A woman getting elected for President? In what universe do you live in?
I understand that Donald is good television. I understand that the media has made billions of dollars throwing out conspiracies and spending hour upon hour discussing them as reality or fiction for decades. I understand how the haters on the right have been throwing out things against our current President, accusing him of all despicable deeds as he cleans up the mess they left behind when the American people voted them out of office. That the incessant drum they keep beating that our nation is heading in the wrong direction has wore down a lot of people's beliefs in the system, because their lives haven't been affected in a good way for years. I get it. People need someone to look up to, especially when in hard times. Sadly seemingly like clockwork, the leaders of those oppressed, more often then not turn out to be charlatans or worse. Just look back at history. Seriously I still can't understand why anyone thought any of the failed clowns that seemed to come out of the woodwork to run for the Republican nomination were any good. I could understand why the number of candidates kept expanding, I mean none of them in my viewpoint had it in them to run our nation. They each may have positions of power, but their positions on the issues and their voting records defeated each one even before they entered the race. And their pathetic campaigns once in it, made their loses predetermined before they said the words. So a media driven candidate beating a bunch of has beens should never surprise anyone especially one whose mastered the art of conning pretty much everyone. So someone with Donald's star power and skill at BS'ing people was the perfect weapon to easily defeat a bunch of losers. But defeating someone with Hillary Clinton's abilities, or in fact any democrat who ran this year was something only a rigged election possibly could have accomplished. Its a shame the good guys never rig the system, they just get blamed for it by those already doing it. No matter her negatives, no matter the amount of nonsense that the media incessantly tries to throw out at her to try to poison the audience, the reality of Donald Trump eventually would overcome any attempt by the media to try to sway this election.
I also understand the players in the game on both sides of the field. The pros and the cons of the Clintons and of the Trumps. I get how good or bad both candidates are and how everything they did has helped or hurt people. From their work in politics to their work in the private sector. As politicians in office and as lawyers defending their clients. In the case of the Clintons, and most importantly Hillary the great far out weighs any negatives. Whatever money or influence you think that The Clinton Foundation got her, ask yourself how much good her family's charity has done. The list of accomplishments that people joke about that Hillary likes to remind everyone is long and seriously world class. Simply hers is a life of service. In the case of Donald, the only service he knows is when he asks for a waiter. Honestly what good has he done? Seriously what? I'm talking about for others. Yes, he's built up this huge empire, of course we honestly have no clue what he really runs or what is really a business that pays him to have his name involved. We keep hearing how many jobs he created or how many people he employs, which sounds great and is an accomplishment in any one's book. But what has he actually really accomplished? Perhaps a lot of tall buildings, perhaps he's an agile deal broker. But look how many businesses he appears to have ripped off. How many people have come out of the woodwork to tell their personal or business nightmares of dealing with the man. Seriously the only thing the man has, and its the one thing that I keep hearing about from his advisors, surrogates and of course followers and those Americans voting for him, are his supposed positions on policy's. On the stomp or after debates it seems that they wish Donald Trump would shut up and just talk about his policy proposals, then all would be good. They somehow always say that they expect him to surround himself with good people once he's in office and that he would follow their advice. Really? Why would he do that then if he's not following anyone now? So why would people think he would change once in office? How far in the rabbit hole do you need to be to still believe that the man's gonna pivot? After I guess he's actually begun destroying our nation from the inside out, as the leader of the free world.
