So You Are An Early Voter?

Updated on October 27, 2016

I Am An Early Voter

I confess it's true:

I am an early voter.

Now I can move on.

My ballot is in the mail. May we elect the best!


A little background helps:

Back in the day, the day of Chelsea's wedding to be exact, Donald Trump and Bill Clinton sat side by side at the reception.

Picture the scene. Both men, famous in their own spheres, are looking at Hillary whose after-the-wedding plans were already crystallized. The two famous men are engaged in pleasant banter.

"Someday, you know, Hillary will be the first woman president," says Bill with a smile on his face. "You've thought about the presidency, too, haven't you Donald?"

"Yeah, I could be president, if I wanted to be," replies Donald.

"You really think you could?" queries Bill, with a little sly skepticism in his demeanor.

"Sure, I could," declares the always confident Donald.

"Well you better not plan to do it as a Democrat," says Bill with a boastful tone. "She's already got it all wrapped up and in the bag."

"Heck," says Donald; "I could run as a Republican and win the election!"

"What would you know about running for office?" asks Bill with the same challenging skepticism. "It's not as simple as just building a new hotel or casino in Las Vegas. You have to have some real balls and chutzpah!"

"I could do it. Just wait and see!" says Donald with a new dream in mind.

Here we are some 10 days before the election in 2016....

What once was some "pleasant banter" between Bill and Donald has turned into the challenge Donald accepted and is trying to cope with.

Hillary, whose advisers spurred an unwitting Senator Bernie Sanders into the 2016 race so that by comparison Hillary would look youthful and vigorous, stands on the brink of fulfilling those previously crystallized plans.

Donald, who was challenged to compete in that "pleasant banter" with Bill, has beaten down the leading Republican career politicians who had even better chances of successfully facing off with Hillary, and both Hillary and husband Bill are laughing their way to the polls, certain that they manipulated Donald's strong ego to their maximum advantage.

To Donald, who couldn't be fired, if he never had the job in the first place, a defeat would mean only a bump in the road for a lifelong Democrat who thumbed his nose at a bunch of Republican stalwarts and pulled off "the impossible" feat of becoming their nominee.

History, if nothing else, would ponder his meteoric rise to prominence for years to come. And, the prominence, dollar for dollar, wasn't bad advertising for the personal investment he made.

Donald would return to TV and his international business deals. Bill would return to live in The White House and the reflected glory of an ever grateful Hillary.

And the American people?

Well let's say they were the innocent pawns in a game of "All's fair in love and politics."

To the victor go the roses, thorns and all.

Reading up on how elections get stolen

In Election 2016 the accusation has been repeatedly made that the results are "rigged."

It has happened before, and this amazon book offering is a collection of cases in point.

Not only can it happen, it already has, and not just once or twice.

      When Sanders entered the race the Clinton entourage hoisted the rigging. Their preferred opponent was "The Donald" and even at that they had to offer Ms. Brazil a juicy plum to cheat for a debate question to try to shut down that inexperienced debater after getting psychological profiles for Trump's hot buttons. Her powerful contempt saw her through those.

      Now her contempt for the dictates of our nation's national security stands between her and the power to have her ultimate contempt for the laws of the land.

      Very interesting take. Certainly not out of the realm of possibilities.
