Don't Be A Fool. Pick A President Who Can Rule: My Opinion of A Few Candidates 2016

Updated on February 26, 2016

The Beginning of Our Doom; George W. Bush

© 2016 Missy Smith

Where do I begin, because, quite frankly, I have always hated politics/politicians? Oh, there have been some through the years that I have admired for their thoughts on life and how to make it better. One of those is our current President Barack Obama. Granted, I think sitting in that seat he has faltered a lot through his term of leadership. I care not to look at the negative of that or even discuss the issues of those, because who the hell, with any common sense, would actually believe that he could fix every single issue this crazy place we live in called “America” has made. He had to take up the reigns of George W. Bush. Come on, we all know how stupid he was folks! He made a mess of things before Barack slid into the spot of leader position. Just for that alone, we should commend Mr. Obama for even attempting to find us a cure for the mess he made of our establishments. I’m posting a video of Georgie to show you what I mean by this statement. I used to get so uncomfortable if I watched one of Georgie Boy’s press conferences. The blooper reel I show here will show you why. It doesn’t lie, it was the reality of how he was. That’s all I’m saying!

You Seriously Think Obama Has Been Worse Than This? Lol.

He Reigns...Well, For Now.

A Common Sense Leader On Gun Control Issues

Barack Ain't Whack!

However, I’ll mention a few things about Mr. Obama that is worth bringing up. Since he has been in office he has passed; Health Care Reform, Passed the Stimulus to help economic growth, He ended the war in Iraq, just like all you haters wanted him to, and now you complain he’s pansy ass when it comes to starting a war to fight people like ISIS. Come on, you either want a war, or you want someone to try to fix a problem without losing all your sons and daughters in the process. He has ordered airstrikes and maintained considerable allies with other countries in order to bury the senseless terrorist group. Even before ISIS came to pass, he did send our great military known as the Navy Seals into action to take out none other than Osama Bin Laden, and he did that. The fact is, I don’t believe anything any President can do to bring a change in any area of our "America," will be enough for American citizens. You want miracles, and they don’t exist. I researched and found that Obama, while in office, has done at least 300 positive things to help our nation. Even more, I just don’t know the specific count.

Look At This Idiot...Is This Really Who You Want to Run Our America

I'm Not Racist or Egotistical...Riiiigghhtt...LOL.

And People Are Actually Voting For This A**Hole!

The Devil Himself; Donald Trump

And now…let’s talk about what is happening at this moment in time shall we? You crazy people who are always talking about and crying over wars, racism, economic growth, and getting rid of terrorism, are choosing to elect Donald “F**king” Trump of all people to run our United States. Are you kidding me?! He has already said he’ll start a war for you. Yeah, he will go into ISIS territory and take them down, at the expense of losing so many more in the process, and making more enemies no doubt. Yeah, he’ll take care of stirring that pot of destruction for us, to where we will be at war with everybody not just ISIS. And racism, Oh, he will deal with racism alright. He will build walls, burn bridges, stop immigrants from coming here. What in the world are you people thinking? America is the Melting Pot! We stand for unity among all nations, and everyone who wants to be an American citizen the freedom right to come here and work for that right. I’m getting frustrated just writing this. I have seen, more terrorism from our own people than I have of actual terrorists. No, I’m not saying we haven’t had terrorists’ attacks here, that would be idiotic of me to say after 9/11. However, when you measure up the destruction of killings here, it is more by our own than not. We will become the real “Purge” movie; you know, since Mr. Trump thinks that a gun law to keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous people is ludicrous. He will have all of us strapped with weapons, and all the crazies out there shooting and killing for the fun of it. All I can say is; Wake up people who keep voting for this racist ego-driven maniac just because he is a billionaire, you are about to learn a great lesson at the expense of us all if you don’t snap back to reality.

Bernie Is The Definition of INTEGRITY!

An Impressive Life Story; Great Resume

My Vote Goes To........Trumpets Please!!

Again, politics smolitics…I hate them all, but with how people are viewing things now, I guess it’s time to put in my vote. We have lost every common sense here. I’m almost embarrassed to call myself an American. Common sense is all it takes to realize right from wrong people! It’s all it takes to see a snake in the grass versus a true devoted candidate who would genuinely try to help us. Therefore, I will go ahead and put in my vote for Bernie Sanders. He is the only one I see with common sense and knowledge to bring us to a decent living. No, he will not solve it all, he has said himself he will not be able to solve every issue, but that is what motivates me to vote for him. He has common sense, and he tells the truth as he sees it. However, I do believe he will give his best effort to find solutions for all problems we have here, and that’s good enough for me.

The videos I post are imperative to getting my hub in a whole, so please watch them all. And I hope you think my poem is, well...Brilliant! LOL.

Cool! Art Garfunkel is backing Bernie, and letting him use America!

Don't Be Fooled

© 2016 Missy Smith

Are we in shambles

in this United States?

Yes, and without unity,

we will remain in defeat.


I say, believe in peace,

and love, believe that

God is the true President,

and he works up above.


Believe we only need

someone who knows

him inside. God will

then help this person

to guide.


It does not matter if

they are black or white,

man or woman, Jewish

or not.


We cannot judge by race

or religion. We are all his

children; you must seek a

common vision.


However, in saying that,

there will be one who

will coerce the devil’s

ways.


He will excite you

with a plan to take all

your problems away.


This will be your test of

observance; your test

of your own ability to

see a serpent.


For if you fail this test

of common knowledge,

you will sell us all to

Purgatory I promise!

Great song for Bernie's Campaign. I'm such a fan of Simon and Garfunkel

      SO you think a comparison of Bush and Obama is their faux pas?

      Guess you didn't see these, I'd say Obama, even with a teleprompter beats Bush hands down, just ask any corpseman in the 57 states.

      Hi tsadjatko, The start of my hub was just to defend that maybe Obama had more to contend with after Bush left than anyone remembers. I don't have to look at those videos; I actually ran across a few, and my opinion and how I delivered that opinion stands as I wrote it. I believe there is a big difference to blundering from being tired, as to blunder from obvious unintelligent reasons. I didn't laugh at Obama's; I laughed at Bush's. You know, in that way of saying to myself, " this is who ran our country," Shaking my head.

      I did find it enjoyable that you brought a debatable comment to my hub. After all, it is about politics, and I know that everyone does not have the same political outlook as myself. It's really not about our leader who is in the hot seat at this moment though. It's about who we should put in that seat next? Who could stand the heat? That's the big question here. A lot of people believe it's Donald Trump, but his bark will not stand up to the pressure; he's too insecure. It's obvious on how he brags about himself and puts everyone else down.

      I appreciate your visit and your comments to this hub. Many Blessings. ~Missy

      Yeah but when you take a onesided stand on something as frivolous as faux pas especially as a means to judge which president was worse it tells me nothing you have written would be worth the read, and no surprise it wasn't.

      Don't we all do that, tsadjatko? I mean we all compare who was better who was worse. I think that is how we come to the initial decisions we make when we vote, right? As far as if you feel this was worth the read, that is totally up to you, it harms me none. I appreciate you stopping by and commenting regardless. :)

      I concur, billybuc. These debates I've watched have been the most entertaining for sure, and a bit frightening when you think about who will end up in the final roundup. I really believe in Bernie though. He is a wise old owl. He's flawless in that wisdom when he speaks and answers questions. Thanks!

      Very interesting, but hot topic. I agree with you that Obama has done a lot for the better of Americans. I think he could do much more if given one more chance. And, truly, it is God who rules from above. Hope all goes well.

    • Missy Smith profile image
      Author

      Missy Smith 16 months ago from Florida

      Thanks Venkatachari, Unfortunately, even if it was possible for Obama to run another term, and even if he could do much more for us here, the cruel fact is, it wouldn't be enough for the people of America. Eventually, and from how our history of Presidents has gone; he would most likely be targeted by some crazy for assassination. Everyone claims that their dislike for him is not racist, but I disagree. I believe, as he hasn't done everything good, he has still done a lot of good, no better, no worse, than any other President who sat in the oval office. The truth is they all had some things we did not agree with or appreciate while leading. I'm pretty sure Mr. Obama is ready to take his family and leave Washington by now, and I certainly wish him the best in doing that.

      What I hope is that people change their focus about Donald Trump. I am so amazed at how many naive people there is in America. Just because he's rich and he's mean, doesn't make a good ruler, he could make it so much worse instead of better. Oh well, Pray for us here, Venkat, I think we will need some prayers come election time.

      A great commentary and way of voicing your concerns for your country America and the fight for the presidency. Fortunately I am on the outside looking in, but I feel for your country (and ourselves as allies) if Donald Trump were to win. Here in Australia we see very little of the other candidates apart from Clinton and Trump, but of what I have seen I agree with you about Berney Sanders. Obama has done a lot of positive things, some negative in his time in the White House but has been largely hindered by a hostile Congress. I really feel for him in his inability to make significant changes in regard to gun control especially. Bush was a joke, Trump would be dangerous! You handled tsadjatko commendably (he and I have had our run-ins before).

      Missy Smith 16 months ago from Florida

      Thank you, John. Yes, everything you commented I agree with whole-heartedly. As far as you being on the outside looking in...no matter, you seem to have been just as good at grasping our situation here than me, and you certainly have a better outlook about Trump than others do here. I have no idea what is in some of these peoples minds to think that Trump could straighten this country out? I shudder to think of the hell hole we will live in if he is elected. It's scary!

      As far as tsadjatko goes, he doesn't bother me. It only took me a couple of times in the forums to realize there are some pretty big know-it-alls here on hubpages. Honestly, those few times I got a little tiffed in those forums surprised me, because I usually let negativity of what others think about me or what I say, roll off my back. It just doesn't bother me much. Sorry to disappoint the fellow, but I felt no tinge of worry with him. I quite enjoyed his reaction honestly. lol.

      I'm happy to see you here, John. There are a few people I wait on to show up and comment, because I respect their opinions, and you are one of those. Thank you much!

      Missy.....As I told you before, don't feel isolated. Even those of us who allow ourselves to become really involved & try to follow it all~~HATE politics/politicians. They make it so easy for us to hate them.

      I am always open to hearing the thoughts of others & how they arrive at their opinions. I take a long time to come to a "favorite," whom in my case is the one I HATE least! LOL Nice, huh?

      Well, there's really not much more we can do. We the people are SUPPOSE to have the power, but guess what????

      For your first step at a political commentary, you did well.....a little "left"...but well!........Paula

      My hat goes off to you for writing this hub. After having Bush in the office for eight years the thought of having "Trump" as president scares the living daylights out of me. Bushes's 8-year term was like a tornado, it came and destroyed this Country. The massive home loss as well as job loss has left America devastated. I give Obama an "A" for trying, but the truth is he could not have brought this Country out of the mess that Bush has put us in. I remember when Bush was running for office and I was begging my co-workers not to vote for him. I told them that he would ruin this Country and oppress the people and I was right. It amazes me how people exercise their right to vote and have no idea what the politician stands for. There is so much corruption and mismanagement of the money in politics it makes me sick. They sleep well at night while business are closing left and right, putting people out of work.

      MizBejabbers 16 months ago

      I agree with most of what you say, Missy. Loved your video of Bush bloopers. Could it have been the anabuse talking? Don’t the mannerisms, not just the words remind you more of a standup comic rather than a president, Stephen Colbert perhaps, although he is more articulate and has a reason for saying the things he says.

      I voted for Obama after Hillary lost. Remember that the Affordable Care Act that Obama was able to push through was first attempted by Bill, and Hillary espoused it during her campaign. It took some doing, and I’m just happy that our President was able to get it passed.

      I don’t go for Bernie’s socialism, and I still believe that Hillary will be the best President. Oh yes, everybody wants to bring up Bengazhi, but as she said, she oversaw (as does our current SOS now) 200 embassies, and there were people whose jobs were to keep the embassies safe. Remember that the Republicans refused to give her the funding to do that job. Right now, she probably has more knowledge of the world than even Obama does, and definitely more than Bernie has. I wish people would stop selling her short. Of course Christian women wish she would stay home and bake cookies for her grandchildren. I've noticed that most of the people on HP lean to the right. I'm glad you've spoken up for the left.

      I don't think there is any way of a Trump victory. The super delegates will take care of that. They are there to make sure the will of the party, not the voters, gets done.

      Missy Smith 16 months ago from Florida

      Hi Paula, yes, I don't claim to know a lot at all about politics, all I can really comment on is what I have seen through the years, that is if I chose to watch. I usually didn't to be honest. However, I did watch Obama a bit more than the others. Clinton was alright; Bill that is, he was decent. I remember back in, I think, 81', when I was a young girl, I voted for Reagan when we had a class vote, but I was like 9. LOL.

      I purposely stayed away from the hoopla of debates on the presidential race through the years. However, now we have a Trump trying to bulldoze the little value this country has left. At least, that is my opinion, of course.

      I caught several of Bernie Sanders interviews by chance, and he really turned me on to this race to the White House a little more this year. I do love his vision; he seems an open minded free spirited soul, much like I view my own self. Some are criticizing that he says he is a Democratic Socialist, but I find there is nothing wrong with that. What is wrong with that?? "People before Profit" I mean that is long overdue isn't it?

      I may be a little "left" and therefore, you are no doubt insinuating that is a liberal way of thinking, right? Meh...I don't like to label myself, I just like honest views. I like unity instead of division. I actually do want better ways to handle some crucial issues like "Gun Control" instead of so-called traditional set rules that have been around since the Government started. Not that I say the old amendments shouldn't stand their ground. I think it's fine that well rounded sane people can carry their guns, but what is wrong with more extensive background checks. That wouldn't exactly change that amendment would it? Nah! So if all this makes me a little "left" I guess I will live with that. lol. Hey, how about labeling me as a new aged hippie! Yep, I like that! :)

      Thanks Paula, I always enjoy your comments. :) :)

      Missy Smith 16 months ago from Florida

      Everything you said Dana, I 100% agree with. It is truly amazing who we have let into the White House. See, that's what scares me, If we were dumb enough to let Georgie Boy take that seat for two terms, who's to say Trump will not succeed and get his chance. So far, the numbers are scaring me a bit.

      I'm excluding Obama from this, because to me, he at least tried to do some good. Through the years of his terms as President, I've heard more people complain about his background and where his father was born (Kenya) than actually complain about things he has not done for America. Look, he cannot help where his dad was from, the man didn't even raise him. Like any of that should matter anyway, right? I mean, it isn't like he hand picked his parents. I think it is absurd and racist to be honest. They say he is Muslim...well, so what? That does not make him a terrorist. It's all just been really silly to me. Two terms, and all I've seen is him giving orders and succeeding in killing our #1 enemy from 9/11 Osama Bin Laden, fighting for tougher gun control laws, and getting a healthcare reform bill passed. Man...am I the only one that seen the promise in all that instead of fault. It's just weird to me.

      The fact remains that Obama is heading out, and we will need to elect someone new. Why not a man who has lived a full life, and really has a great understanding of what our America needs. He doesn't promise miracles, but he promises a great work ethic in trying to get some important issues solved like putting people back to work.

      Thanks Dana, I always enjoy reading your comments.:) :)

      I don't know if I have a big opinion about Hillary. I don't dislike her or like her. I'm kind of not sure with her. I do think you are probably right about her knowledge. I believe she has a tremendous amount of that. I always said she was the Vice President when her husband was in office. She was truly his biggest adviser; I believe. However, it seems it has come down to her and Bernie on the Democratic side, so I'm sure that I have a liking towards Sanders; I will have to stick with him. I'm not saying Hillary wouldn't be my second choice though. :)

      Well Missy I have to tell you, since you said "I appreciate you stopping by and commenting regardless." and didn't delete my criticism I have gained some respect for you, although not much for your methodology of determining who is a good or bad President. I prefer more meat in the analysis of a person's achievements or failures, however since you set the bar at faux pas I thought: What if you put Obama's gaffes in George Bush's body? Are the gaffes more persuasive or is it the persona? maybe this would persuade you to think a little deeper. :-)

      Missy Smith 16 months ago from Florida

      Well, thank you, tsadjatko. However, I will not even go take a look at that video. You see; I do not want to think deeper, as my thoughts are my thoughts through consideration of my individual beliefs, and I do not need convincing otherwise. I'm not running my personal campaign. I'm just supporting one that I think will be good, and putting, in my opinion, on one I think would be disastrous. I used Bush and Obama for props at the beginning to do so.

      See, I'm not big on ideology of politics. I'm more for ideology of human character. To me, if you don't possess the ladder, you can't do the job. Especially here in America, as we are the diverse country; red, yellow, black, and white. We are indeed "The Melting Pot" right?

      I do admire your attempts to lure me into an empty conversation of faux pas, which I, in fact, do not feel my article as a whole was all about. To me, it is more about who is smart enough to actually help the people of the United States versus who is only just smart enough to fool people into believing they can help the people of the United States. That's It! It's my opinion, no meat needed to start a conversation, as you are doing a jam up job keeping it rolling.

      Awareness, Tsadjatko, that's all. Sharing "my thoughts" on who will, "in my opinion," be the best person for the job; no explanation of political policies or rules needed, go look them up for yourself. That stuff is sooooo boring written out, and if I come across an article like that, I would stop reading it after the first line.

      No, my words here are enough, and the meat of it is all the good stuff, like the videos and links to things I posted. We like to listen and watch debates on the policies we care about, not spell them out. It's so much better that way. They will explain all the policy parts better than I could spell it out for anyone. But, I think I'm damn decent at introducing them with my words, don't you? Oh wait...nope, you like everything spelled out in a boring way, no personal opinions, which is what brings conversation, just facts to political policies, and who cares about the characters of the candidates who will attempt to bring some valid ones to the table.

      You are judging my process by not knowing my character, so I can forgive you for that. Have a Nice Day! :)

      I agree with all you just commented, Deb. It's so simple to see really. I think I got a little peeved through this hub just thinking about the sheer fact that no one can see real and truth, but only seem to see destruction as the answer. Basically, if people vote for Trump, that is what he is offering, and it's so easy to see. People like his circus class antics and bouts of hateful improv routines. It's sad!

      Hey Shanmarie, yes, very scary indeed. I am flabbergasted at the support for Donald Trump. If people do not come to their senses, I fear we are doomed.

      Like you, I pretty much hated politics, but the craziness of this election has awakened me to the happenings. I had to look at all candidates and come to a conclusion myself on which one would be right for America. It is a no-brainer for me, and I can't understand how others can't see it. Bernie Sanders has the most experience and knowledge to run our United States. I really pray others start paying attention.

      Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week.

      Hi Jill Miceli, I'm so happy to meet you, and I am glad to hear you liked this little hub of mine explaining the nonsense of the Trump movement.

      Can you believe he is actually in the lead on the Republican side? I'm just astonished at the lack of heart a lot of Americans have now. What about going forward, and not building walls back up, but learning to live together in peace and harmony? What about appreciating everyone for their differences, and learning life? We all live this life! Am I right? Maybe I'm just an old flower child, but I am against hate. Trump stands up for it, and it sickens me.

      I took a look at your bio, and I have to say that I am super impressed. I admire that you are not living for the ego-driven lifestyle most are stuck in, but you actually left that stress behind and now live the way that makes you happy. I'm very honored to have met such a pioneer of this era. I love it. Booyah Jill!

      Missy that is so kind. I just wrote an article about Bernie, I hope it gets approved, maybe it will be up soon. It means a lot to me to see Bernie win the general election. Empathy is lacking in this country, I really think it's just education. People want the same thing generally, but they just don't understand how to get it. Trump is the epitome of Capitalism gone wrong. Selling the fear, I hate it. And, I fear for our immigrants, some who are very good friends. We must all stick together, not push each other away. I am against hate of all kinds, as well. Good to know that there is another flower child out there. Your way cool.

      I think you are so right, Jill. Empathy is definitely lacking here, and people generally do want the same thing. Education is a key component, and I believe Bernie's plan for everyone to get properly educated without worrying about the debt that goes along with that is one of the most important issues of all, and he elaborates a plan of action. Trump has not elaborated on a plan of action for anything important. No, all he has said is let's turn away all Muslims and build that wall. Let's be racist and get rid of all the Mexicans, who cares if they are legal here now. He is basically saying screw "The Declaration of Independence," and that very validity of living all of us are supposed to live by "all men are created equal."

      I could probably go on and on about this Presidential race this year, but I'll try to keep my cool about it and just throw in an occasional opinion here and there. After all, if a person has any common sense, then Trump will be defeated. I hope that happens, because I'm starting to become totally embarrassed at the lack of knowledge and empathy Americans are showing right now.

      Your article is something I will definitely look for and want to read. I too hope it gets published soon. :) I'm also glad I have found another comrade with some common sense looking towards the future of America. Thanks again, Jill!
