Democrats Love Republicans
This time around in the U.S. Presidential election cycle, the Republicans are loved by all Democrats because the next president, barring an arrest of Hillary Clinton for email scandal, or an assassination of her, America will have its first woman president. There are many middle of the road Democrats and Republicans who find Donald Trump’s personality very un-presidential coupled with naive policy. He often seems to think it is just a “reality TV show” that if he loses, well, he will go back making billions. If he becomes President, then much of the world will be aghast, not to mention the U.S. As for Cruz, he is really no better, simply more professional in his presidential bid.
There are also many independent middle of the road voters, that, really could care less about political parties and simply the person and his vision. I am one. For a long time, I loved Trump’s brashness, his in your face politically incorrect speeches. I mean, it was soooo refreshing after enduring the Obama politically correct extremism and decision to make America second rate. However, Trump is just looking like a salesman now, saying anything and nothing about his policy details (even they are vague) just to get elected. His motto of ‘Make America Great Again” is fine but I doubt if he can really do much about it. His recent idiot comments on abortion, nuclear and NATO, just shows he is naïve and stupid. It may sound legitimate, but it would never happen. So, maybe Cruz, then? He is much more presidential and knows how the world really works, but the problem there is that he will never get enough votes in the general election. He is kind of like the Bernie Sanders for the Democrats. Same thing, despite his meager wins, he will never ever become president.
That leaves, Hillary, which like many, I really do not like for the most part. BUT… I guess if I have to, I will vote for her. For me, like others, this election is really about who is the lesser of two evils? Trump would wreak havoc in domestic and international arenas, pissing off many nations friendly to the US. You can just see Trump throwing the “finger” at them in order to make America great and in the meantime, causing more enemies and problems for the country because of this attitude, which, just sucks. But, this is why his base of 35% are devoted to him. They could care less what he stands for, they just love this “hard ass” attitude. Luckily, the rest of the electorate are not so blind to follow, though they may sympathize.
Of course, Hillary, is an extension of the Obama doctrine. While I do not like all of it, and hate his foreign policy weakness, it may be better as you can always become “bold” quickly. Every so often, even Obama did something unexpected. I think Hillary would be more hawkish, more willing, to have America lead again without making more and new enemies. Being the first woman president, she would like to prove things as a woman. I still preferred Carli Fiorina of them all, along with Marko Rubio. They would have been much better Republican candidates in the general election.
So, unless something really dramatic and shocking occurs to Hillary, she will be the next American president, that is why Democrats just love the Republicans. In November, the election will either be a squeaker or a landslide for the Democrats.
