Hillary Just Killed Her Chances to Win

  1. Valeant profile image96
    Valeantposted 23 months ago

    America already had trust issues with Clinton after the e-mail server.  Comey basically called her out and told us she lied to our faces on that one.  One server - not.  Never shared classified e-mails - she surely did.

    Then you've got proof that the Democratic National Committee basically rigged the primary in her favor.  Likely voter fraud in California on top of it.

    And with all these issues, she gives Wasserman Schultz a spot within her committee after she has to resign in disgrace amidst the corruption.  That's like telling the American people that she just doesn't care if we know how dishonest she is.

    To me, that was a final nail in her already full-of-nails coffin.  I liked Bernie.  I thought he had integrity.  But I was willing to vote for Hillary because the platform of the Democrats mirrored my own values of inclusion and environmentalism a bit more than the GOP platform.

    But after this obvious spate of dishonesty and corruption, I'm not sure I can do it in good conscience.  Any one else feeling this way too?

      The whole thing is a Ugly fairytale anyways, like your pictures.
      I don't go by honest elections anymore. It would be a selection and with a Hillary setup, it seems to suit new world order best.

      Too many of us ignore the man behind the curtain pulling most of the strings to these stuffed sausage puppets.

      There are discerning Liberals who based upon the e-mails & now the DNC unethical rigging to ascertain Clinton's political preeminence, won't vote for her because it has been proven that if she is unethical in obtaining her presidency, she will be even more unethical as President of the United States.  Discerning Liberals believe that the presidency is an office for which there should be a high level of being trustworthy & ethical.  They believe that a vote for Clinton would be a vote for an unscrupulous, unethical, & untrustworthy President.


      However, there are hard line Liberals who will adamantly refuse to acknowledge the e-mail & the rigging.  They will strongly proclaim that Clinton is the right choice for president because she has political experience & fight for the rights of the underdog.  They even avow that no matter what Clinton did is nothing compared to what Trump has done.  They view Clinton as a far better person than Trump will ever be.  They contend that a vote for Trump would be regressive for America in terms of women's & minority rights.

      There are those who solidly believe that as evil as Clinton is, she is less evil than Trump.  They maintain that although Clinton had the e-mail & rigging scandals, she is far better choice as President than Trump who they view as a fascist, racist demagogue a la Hitler who panders to the worst element. In essence, they view Clinton as the most viable presidential choice.

      I am not pleased with the way Clinton handles things. But, Trump's race baiting and sowing seeds of division among us in addition to his less than ethical practices in his realm of the private sector, makes him even more of a persona non grata for me.

      I keep circling back to the Wikileaks e-mails and the talk about another batch "coming soon."  I think that we may see some tomorrow just as a way to stop any convention bounce and to show Hillary's speech talking points as fabrications.  There are a lot of people who truly loath that woman and Julian Assange is one of them.

        Cruz was a Bush operative, in Goldman Sachs' pocket, etc.  Ted got bood off the stage at the RCN convention. His wife Heidi had to be escorted out of the convention by security because the crowd was chanting "Goldman Sachs" at her.  The Cruz name are pretty much mud.  Lying Ted Cruz!

    This is my last political post until January 2016 because I give up arguing the same points over and over again with folks who do not want to change one iota of their already fully formed opinions.  No fact.  No verdict.  No evidence will make a dent in the fortress they've built.  So I'm leaving them to their closed minds. I'll be back in January.

            The political forums can be a rough place, but I do believe many people pay attention to who is rational, fair, accurate and honest.

            I have great respect for those who consistently are and little patience for those who consistently are not.

          I would beg to differ. If you are arguing in defense of something then you believe it to be true.

          Unfortunately, political opinions are based on many factors. We can have the same data but arrive at different conclusions because our goals are not the same.

          It doesn't make anyone completely right or wrong. We see Hillary supporters glossing over all manner of atrocities, while bashing Trump. And vice versa. We believe what we believe, no matter the facts others deem to be important.

            But, that is the challenge, it may be an exercise in futility, but we all have the opportunity to form out and expressed our opinions well. I have been known to change a minor line of thinking and opinion I have held as a result of well presented arguments by right-wingers. People can be moved, ideas exchanged and opinions changed. It is not impossible. That is where the fun comes in, sure beats sitting around watching the grass grow.

            Yea, apparently eating a taco salad on Cinco De Mayo is racist if you are a conservative.

            But DNC reps saying this; "Hi Everyone, Attached is a script for a new video we'd like to use to mop up some more taco bowl engagement, and demonstrate the Trump actually isn't trying" is perfectly fine.

            Trump's failed attempt to publicly appeal to Hispanics pales in comparison to DNC reps referring to Mexicans as "taco bowl" voters in secret. 

            Now that the hidden truth has been leaked, let the back peddling begin.
