To Vote — or Not To Vote?
by Bill Chatham — C3
“Why are you not voting,” I asked? “Well — I don’t like either one of ‘em. Clinton’s a crook and Trump’s like Archie Bunker in a suit!”
To be fair, those generalizations, while seeming to be true for those who’re not paying attention, are not valid enough reasons for skipping a rite thousands of Americans have died for, and a rite millions in today’s world don’t have.
Consider other factors — mainly, what does either party they represent stand for? Today’s Democratic Party (Hillary) is entrenched in a determined march toward Socialism and Globalism, all under the control of the privileged few, an Oligarchy with President Obama making a determined effort to succeed the outgoing head of the UN. The next steps after Socialism are Communism and Dictatorship.
The GOP (Grand Old Party — The Donald) seems to prefer the mantle of strength that has in the past, kept America at the forefront of world leadership. Our former scientific and economic dominance is now severely eroded in the current scheme of the evolving Democratic, Globalist world. Pay attention to what Socialism is doing to Venezuela, once the leading economy of South America. Inflation just this year is up 700%. Prepare for economic refugees from a country that has more oil reserves than we do.
Every rung of the ladder America has created by its determination and dominance through recent centuries has ended in the twenty-first. We gave away our lead by trying to be politically correct lemmings. Phooey! Let the rest of the world strive to be like us!
I believe we need someone like General George S. Patton right now — someone who has the aura and determination of such a leader, someone who is just as politically incorrect and is not afraid to build a symbolic wall just to make a point. Patton once said, “We herd sheep, we drive cattle, we lead people. Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.”
Is Trump today’s Patton? We’ve certainly had our bellies full of crooks and self-serving wimps……just pull the big “R” lever.
