She’s not perfect, but she also is not Trump

I voted several weeks ago, mainly because there are 10 important ballot measures and several close and important county and legislative races. But I almost left the presidential ballot blank. But I plugged my nose, closed my eyes and penciled in Clinton. As I have said before, Trump will probably win in SD and our vote for president really doesn’t matter in SD. We haven’t elected a Democrat for president in SD since Johnson. That’s a long time ago.

I will agree with most Trump supporters that Hillary has a bumpy public service resume over the past 30 years. Real bumpy. But she has one. No public servant has a perfect record. But Hillary’s achievements outweigh her downfalls. Her public service experience is paramount to Trump. He has zero. Unless you count his tax avoidance and the constant lawsuits he is involved with with the government.

He scares the S— out of me. He has no policy experience, no Federal economics experience, no national security experience. Zilch. All he has is shallow anger.

I tell people my choice for president was very easy. While I do have concerns about Hillary, I also know what goes on in Washington is mostly silliness, but as long as the next president can keep me safe and not let the bottom fall out of the economy, that’s about all I can expect from them. I will sleep soundly if Hillary is elected, because I think she can at ‘least’ provide me with that security. If she accomplishes other things like fixing the ACA, keeping Social Security and Medicare viable, ending the wars in the mideast, fixing the racial divisions in our country, raising taxes on the rich and appointing more liberal judges, that would also be great.

Trump hasn’t proved to me he can provide that kind of security. In fact, I can’t imagine the nightly bad dreams I would have if he is elected. The best way to describe a Trump presidency?


8 Thoughts on “Why I voted for Hillary Clinton

    Hillary gave Bill a hall pass 4 times and Trump gropes. Who’s your porn star? Trump would get the nuclear football and proclaim ‘You’re Fired’. He got rich from 4 bankruptcys. Hillary forgets you in Benghazi. She considers her emails spam when in fact she’s selling the farm. I like both VP candidates and wish there could be a Pence/Kaine ticket.

  2. I’d take inexperience over EXPERIENCE that has bad judgment after bad judgment….she cheated Bernie out of the primary…all the wikileaks emails show it…she paid for rioters at Trump’s rallies; Libya, Syria, iraq, russia…where are her foreign policy successes?

    It will be 4 more years of fighting…Republicans Hate her and I read more and more stories about Progressives not liking her either….we will just run up more debt and kick the can down the road yet again…

    I agree the 2 VPs are BOTH better than BOTH nominees….sad

    But, but, another business world CEO connives his way into an executive public office? What could possibly be wrong with that???

    Nothing wrong with that. Country of Trump and city of Sanford will mean changing the flag and stationary but that can’t cost more than remodeling The White House or building a border wall.

    Off topic but remember the kissing booth at the county fair. Latest concept is one dollar for groping and national fame.

    I was for Bernie at the beginning. When Bernie threw his support towards Hillary, so did I. Even though Bernie has less baggage, I’m certain fox noise and 24/7 neocon radio would have gone all out labelling Bernie as a communist. A dem, like Hillary, in politics for 30 years is going to have some baggage. We all have seen exactly what kind of baggage trump has brought with him, and will continue to drag with him, win or lose.

    We must not lose sight of what hangs in the balance. One, and maybe two or three Supreme Court seats.

    Democrats must not get complacent about voting, just because Hillary leads the polls. God help America if trump is voted in.
