I doubt anything written by me will change anyone's mind regarding today's election. If you haven't already voted, your mind is likely made up. There's a slim to no chance of anyone influencing your decision.
But I hope that decision is to vote. Not voting is not an option.
Some people think their vote won't count, their vote won't make a difference, the election has already been decided or is rigged, or neither candidate deserves their vote. In 2012, Obama only won the popular vote by 5 million. Far more than that didn't bother to cast a vote that day.
Again, not voting today is not an option.
I suspect you have your reasons for voting for one candidate and not voting for the other. Out of curiosity, I Googled "reasons not to vote for Clinton" and "reasons not to vote for Trump." Picking the leading results from each search, I've compiled the responses below.
They are in no particular order and their sources are listed at the end of this article.
If you make the time to read through these and compare them, it should become clear to you as it did to me that there's a difference in these two candidates. Hillary Clinton is corrupt and seemingly operates above the law. She represents everything that is wrong with politics today. Her history is littered with scandals, lies, and blood. Donald Trump's column is filled with character issues. He said this, he said that, he acted a certain way, and he made some poor decisions.
Is Donald Trump perfect? Not by a long shot. Do I support or overlook some of the outrageous words and decisions he's chosen? Not at all. Yet, to compare the two and be given the choice of having Trump or another four years of the Clintons in White House, for me the choice is easy.
I'm with Trump.
Perhaps you deem me foolish for thinking so but I love the idea of not having a career politician as President. I love the idea of shaking things up, having someone who doesn't need to be bought, and having someone who wants to drain the swamp. I also love the idea of showing many media outlets, Hollywood celebrities, and other liberal establishments that they do not speak for all of America. And I hope many will have the integrity to stick to their words and move out of the country if Trump wins.
America can have a female President, but not Hillary. America deserves better. She needs better.
Either way, I pray we will seek God's wisdom and discernment. I pray that He will heal our land.
|Reasons Not To Vote Clinton||Reasons Not To Vote Trump|
|Hillary claimed she came under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia. That claim was easily debunked by Sharyl Attkisson who was accompanied Hillary’s trip as a member of the press. Hillary twice tried to make the silly suggestion stick before the media caught up with her.*||Trump is a too old to be running for President: If he somehow wins, Donald Trump will be 70 years old when he takes office. That would make him the oldest man ever to be elected to the White House for the first time.****|
|Hillary was at the center of “Travelgate” during her time as first lady. The controversy surrounded seven people who were fired in the office and replaced with her cronies.*||He’s a drama queen: One day he’s getting in a fight with Megyn Kelly; the next day he’s saying Carly Fiorina is ugly and the next thing you know, he has a back and forth going with the Pope. Trump’s like a five year old who will pull the cat’s tail, throw a ball through the window or curse in front of company as long it gets people looking at him. Good attention, bad attention, he doesn’t care. The same traits that make Donald Trump great on reality TV would make him temperamentally unfit to be President.****|
|In two years, 2013-2015, Hillary made $2.9 million in speaking fees from large corporations including $675,000 from Goldman Sachs. *||A man as thin skinned and vengeful as Trump can’t be trusted as President: Trump has written whole chapters of books that discuss how important it is to get revenge on people who cross him. If you trust a man who thinks like that with the FBI, DOJ, DHS, our military and the IRS, then you are either foolish or you just assume he won’t go after you and don’t care if he abuses his office to go after other people.****|
|In 1978 and 1979, Hillary turned a $1,000 investment into $98,540 in less than one year trading cattle futures under the guidance of a Tyson Foods outside attorney. Tyson Foods, under state law, was supposed to dispose of its chicken manure properly, but the state’s governor, Bill Clinton, never enforced the law. Five years later, seepage from the waste contaminated a community’s drinking water and made people sick. It took Bill Clinton 15 months to declare the town a disaster area. *||He’s a conspiracy theorist: Before he started falsely claiming Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio weren’t eligible to be President, Trump was a birther who was publicly claiming Obama’s birth certificate was a fraud.****|
|Hillary wants more funding to go to the abortion giant and butcher shop, Planned Parenthood. *||Trump is a misogynist: Not only has Donald Trump said a lot of gross things about women in general, he also said, “You know, it really doesn’t matter what they write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” Hillary is going to accuse whoever the Republican nominee is of being sexist. If Trump’s the nominee, it will be true.****|
|Hillary believes that an unborn child — just hours before delivery — has no constitutional rights, i.e., no right to life. *||Trump’s an even more perfect example of narcissistic personality disorder than Barack Obama.****|
|She has every intention of using the full power of the federal government to snuff out religious liberty. *||Trump’s a phony Christian: There’s no such thing as an unrepentant adulterer who doesn’t ask God for forgiveness who also happens to be a Christian. Trump is so unfamiliar with the church that he doesn’t even know what an offering plate looks like.****|
|After four American lives were lost in Benghazi, Hillary Clinton blamed Nakoula Basseley Nakoula for a film he made about Islam. Hillary further falsely claimed the attack was in response to said film. To Charles Woods, the father of one of the deceased at Benghazi, Hillary said, “We will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.” Nakoula was immediately jailed for over a year.*||He’s made creepy comments about dating his daughter: Sorry, but this is just a gross, weird and completely inappropriate comment to make about your own child, “I don’t think Ivanka would do that [pose for Playboy], although she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her.” Incidentally, he’s said things like this more than once.****|
|Hillary not only wants to make gun ownership illegal for many, but would allow gun manufacturers to be sued by those who have been shot by a legally owned gun. This would include those committing crimes on private property.*||Trump cheated on his wife: Not only did cheat Trump on his wife, he BRAGGED about sleeping with married women in one of his books.****|
|The Black Lives Matter founder from Worchester, Massachusetts, once complained to Hillary, “Until someone speaks the truth to white people in this country so that we can actually take on anti-blackness as a founding problem in this country, I don’t believe that there is going to be a solution. What in your heart has changed that’s going to change the direction of this country?” Hillary responded, “I don’t believe you change hearts, I believe you change laws. You change allocation of resources. You change the way systems operate,” indicating that she would change government to implement BLM’s demands.*||Donald Trump would be the first President to have made money off of a strip club: Are you really going to be proud to tell your kids that you’re backing a guy who made money off of casinos and a strip club for President?****|
|While an attorney in Arkansas, Hillary defended a child rapist, knew he was guilty, but impugned the character of the 12 year old victim anyway, which would send the now-52 year old woman on a path to a life of drugs and crime. Hillary claimed the girl actively sought out “older men,” and had a reputation as a liar. In an interview, Hillary talked about having the rapist take a lie detector test, which he passed, and laughing, Hillary said, “Which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs.”*||Donald Trump makes fun of the handicapped: What sort of man mocks people for being handicapped? Trump has done it at least twice. He made fun of Charles Krauthammer, who’s paralyzed, by saying, "I get called by a guy that can't buy a pair of pants, I get called names?" Trump also mocked the appearance of a New York Times reporter with a congenital joint condition. You’d be ashamed of your own child if he behaved this way; so how can you vote for a man like this?****|
|Juanita Broaddrick claimed she was raped by Bill Clinton, Paula Jones won a $850,000 settlement when she accused Bill of sexual harassment, and Kathleen Willey accused Bill of sexual assault. In each of these cases, and many more, Hillary hired private detectives to dig up dirt on Bill’s accusers in order to destroy their stories, and keep Bill on his path to the White House, as told by biographer Carl Bernstein, former aide George Stephanopoulous, and former Clinton aide Dick Morris.*||Trump mocked prisoners of war: I don’t much care for John McCain, but Trump didn’t just insult McCain, he mocked every American prisoner of war when he said,“(John McCain is) not a war hero…. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.” There were a lot of American war heroes who served honorably and were captured. They shouldn’t be laughed at by a man who never even served in the military.****|
|As partners in the Rose Law Firm, Hillary, Bill, and Jim and Susan McDougal participated in a pyramid scheme that used fraudulent real estate loans involving inflated appraisals to circumvent federal law. By the time the FBI investigated, every single person involved was indicted or destroyed except Bill and Hillary. Power Line reported in March 2015: Clinton, working with Webster Hubbell and Vince Foster, stole hard copies of the billing records of the Rose law firm where they were partners. They erased the electronic version of these records. One set of these documents was later found in the White House, just outside Hillary’s private office, by an employee. Another set was found in Foster’s attic by his widow, some years after he committed suicide. Clinton’s time sheets (handwritten, as was the practice back in the day) were never found.*||Trump has many failed business ventures: Trump gives people the impression that he always wins. Certainly he has had a lot of success, but he also failed over and over again in ventures he knows little about just like he will if he’s the GOP’s nominee. It will be one more failed business venture like Trump steaks, Trump Vodka, Trump the Game, Trump Magazine, Trump Mortgage, Trump Airlines, Trump University, Trump Casinos and the New Jersey Generals.****|
|In reaction to seeing a menorah in a friend’s home, Hillary wouldn’t get out of her car, and friends heard Bill explain, "I'm sorry, but Hillary's really tight with the people in the PLO in New York. They're friends of hers, and she just doesn't feel right about the menorah."*||Suggesting Ted Cruz’s Father Was Part of the JFK Assassination. Hours before effectively clinching the Republican nomination in early May, Trump saw fit to link Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael to the assassination of President Kennedy. He told Fox & Friends, “I mean, what was he doing — what was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the death? Before the shooting?” *****|
|Hillary Clinton is a liar. I don’t mean this as political conjecture, but a proven, verifiable liar. She lied about the Irish peace process, her vote in favor of the Iraq war, her reason for illegally using a personal email server, that her family was dead broke when they left the White House, about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia, where Chelsea was on 9/11, who she was named after, Benghazi… and the list goes on.**||His Racist, Self-Serving Attack on Judge Curiel. Trump wants Judge Gonzalo Curiel to recuse himself from the Trump University case because of his “Mexican heritage” and “he’s a Mexican”. Well, good to know that Trump judges Curiel by the color of his skin.*****|
|Hillary Clinton was MIA when the 3am phone call came from Benghazi. What difference does it make? The life of four Americans – a huge difference. The Russian Reset? Russia invaded Ukraine on her watch. Again. And again. And again. Boko Haram? Hillary Clinton’s State Department refused to call it a terrorist organization.**||His Reluctance to Condemn David Duke It’s not often that a presidential candidate gets the support of both David Duke and Louis Farrakhan. Trump has done the impossible and united these hateful figures.*****|
|Hillary Clinton accepted millions of Dollars from foreign governments. While serving as Secretary of State, The Clinton Foundation (illegally) accepted boatloads of cash from countries that fund Hamas, harbor terrorists, suppress women, and regularly execute gays and lesbians.***||We must stand for something. Donald Trump’s version of America does not include folks not like him. Instead, he is all about what Sarah Palin labeled “real Americans.” The fact that all us others seem to be utterly expendable is deeply troubling. Targeting an entire religion ― Islam, with 1.6 billion adherents, 3.3 million being U.S. citizens ― for extra scrutiny or worse is patently inconsistent with traditional American values, if not those of the “real Americans.” ******|
|Any government official who feels the need to ask, “At this point what does difference does it make?” where it concerns the deaths of four Americans including our Ambassador to Libya is unfit to be President of the United States. Mind you she asked this question after publicly blaming an internet video for the attack on the consulate, an attack that just happened to occur on the 11th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. Of course, her e-mail correspondence with daughter Chelsea on the attack indicated it was carried out by an “al Qaeda like group.” Again, Hillary takes full responsibility, but as she told Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes, “It was not my ball to carry.” We’ve come a long way from “The Buck stops here” to “It was not my ball to carry.” In this case, a long way isn’t a good way.***||Bullies will always exist somewhere, but the White House should not be that somewhere. What does a bully do? Most of all he or she seeks to intimidate, physically or at least verbally. So far this character trait of Donald’s has been exclusively verbal and aimed at business adversaries and more recently politicians and journalists ― and, of course, then ex-ghost writer of his book and ex-employees or contractors he cheated (those who do not have anti-disparagement contractual handcuffs) who dare to candidly assess his conduct.******|
|Hillary Clinton’s conduct in setting up a private e-mail server which transmitted top secret information and the FBI declining to recommend criminal charges demonstrates that she is above the law. Worse, Hillary acts like there is one law for her and her family and one law for everyone else. Oh, she takes “full responsibility” for her e-mails while saying other Secretaries of State have done the same. So when Hillary takes full responsibility for something, she is really taking no responsibility at all. This is a very dangerous quality for someone who seeks the office of President of the United States to possess.***||Temperament, demeanor and character are important. In many ways, Donald represents the very worst in all of us, or at least many of us. He is all about continuous gratification. He is the petulant child who wants his way. He is the selfish teenager with no big picture yet. He is the spoiled young man of privilege with the “right” race and religion, education, good looks, and family fortune to succeed easily, and who looks down on others lacking in any of the above who do not. ******|
|Project Veritas captured evidence of voter fraud and planting paid agitators at Trump campaign rallies. Robert Creamer, founder of Democracy Advocates and the husband of Rep. Janice D. Schakowsky, Illinois Democrat, stepped down from the campaign Tuesday, a day after Scott Foval was fired from his post as national field director of Americans United for Change.*******||Success does matter. Donald Trump’s business success is greatly exaggerated and his skills limited. Donald Trump is a great salesman and a showman/promoter in a league only with PT Barnum. This we can give him. He has also been very good at making his name a brand and selling its use. For a while, he had some pretty high TV ratings by telling out of work celebrities they were fired. However, even in his own playing field, ask any large New York real estate developer, of which—surprise, surprise—he is not one, at least not as to large (14th in New York City on the latest list), and you will learn his successes are few.******|
